FAQ

What is collagen?

Collagen is a form of protein that is found in the body, mostly in Hair, nails, skin, tendons, cartilage and bones. Collagen is a structural and Functional protein and because of its unique amino acid structure delivers various benefits to the body. 

 How is the Innercol Collagen peptides manufactured?

InnerCol products have been manufactured from collagen, using an enzymatic hydrolysis process to ensure optimal bioavailability and digestion. They are carefully extracted by means of a strictly controlled process to avoid any contamination.

It is characterized by the predominance of glycine, proline and hydroxyproline which represent around 50% of the total amino acid content. This very specific amino acids composition provides hydrolyzed collagen with nutria-functional properties that cannot be found with other protein sources. 

Why is InnerCol Collagen a good protein to use?

Several studies show the evidence that collagen peptides, thanks to their amino acid composition (glycine and proline in particular), can support joint health.
