The term “collagen peptides” is a misnomer. Peptides are in fact protein molecules of mass less than ten amino acids. One compound is actually a group of proteins, and the other is a protein molecule. It is the mixture that is called a peptide.
Peptides are responsible for a number of processes, including tissue repair and hormonal production. They are produced during many types of inflammatory diseases and cancer. In the past they were only used in supplements for specific functions. However, they are now being used as dietary supplements, particularly in people who have severe illnesses. The health benefits of ingesting them far outweigh any dangers they may pose.
What are peptides? They are made up of two groups of amino acids and are very similar to the extracellular matrix proteins. A protein molecule, a peptide is composed of more than one protein of mass less than 10 amino acids and a piece of fatty acid.
It is quite clear that peptides can be broken down into smaller fragments. This process is what takes place in the gastrointestinal tract when they are ingested. This breakdown reduces the proteins to amino acids and fatty acids. The small fragments are then transported to the liver where they are converted into long chains of amino acids, as long chains resemble the DNA building blocks.
What are peptides? They are composed of one or more of these long-chain molecules. These chains may either be chains of amino acids, or chains of long-chain fatty acids.
What are peptides? They are another product of the breakdown of long-chain fatty acids. The three main groups of long long-chain fatty acids are the omega 3, the omega 6 and the alpha-linolenic acid. All of these chains are found in foods such as fish, avocados, coconut oil, seeds, nuts, egg yolks, etc.
What are peptides? They are part of the normal functioning of the cell. They enable the body to make the long-chain fatty acids necessary for cell growth. They also help to control blood cholesterol and insulin levels.
Collagen Peptides Guide
Wellnex collagen peptides are a kind of protein that is made out of collagen, which is an essential element of healthy joints, bones, and skin. Collagen peptides are formed through the enzymatic hydrolysis of collagen. They are non-gelling, highly water-soluble, and a bioavailable type of collagen. We offer I and III types of collagen peptides from marine, porcine, or bovine sources, in various dissolution profiles and molecular weights.
Collagen peptides contain more than 90% protein. They are made from marine, porcine, or bovine sources. Wellnex collagen peptides may be used as an ingredient in cosmeceuticals, beverages, foods, and dietary supplements.
What is unique about collagen peptides?
Eight out of the 9 essential amino acids are contained in collagen peptides. They are high in hydroxyproline, glycine, and proline. Due to the high content of key di-peptides and certain amino acids, including hydroxyproline-glycine and hydroxyproline-proline, the body easily absorbs Wellnex collagen peptides to improve bone, joint, and skin health.
What are the major differences between gelatin and collagen peptides? Although gelatin and collagen peptides are both made out of native collagen protein, the two possess different physical and functional characteristics. Collagen peptides have a much lower molecular weight (100 to 10,000 Da) compared to gelatin (>100,000 Da) with no gel strength. Collagen’s lower molecular weight enables collagen peptides to be absorbed easily into the digestive tract, to deliver amino acid along with high concentrations of hydroxyproline-glycine and hydroxyproline-proline dipeptides to enhance bone, joint, and skin health. Although larger gelatin molecules are still made out of protein, they are harder for the human body to absorb.
Collagen peptides are also very versatile in supplement, beverage, and food formulations. Since they are unable to form gels, collagen peptides are used by formulators in many different applications, which include powders, RTD beverages, and protein bars. On the other hand, gelatin has great gel strength and it is perfect for certain applications where a gel is wanted, like gelled desserts, thickened beverages, and gummies.
