An excellent product for those with a sedentary lifestyle who may suffer from repetitive joint pain or discomfort A nitrogen balance is maintained for the support of age related collagen loss and cartilage damage. Pure protein.
Contains protein of low molecular weight, providing quick absorption in digestive tract
Contains amino acids such as glycine, lysine & proline to help build and repair connective tissue
Hydrolyzed collagen is the same collagen naturally found in bones, skin & cartilage
Hydrolyzed collagen will not congeal
Collagen is important to nitrogen balance and may prevent cartilage damage and collagen loss
Gelatin is the purified protein derived by the selective hydrolysis of collagen from the skin, the connective tissue and/or bones of animals. Great Lakes Gelatin provides the highest type of pure unflavoured edible gelatins. Gelatin is a hot water soluble protein extracted from collagen. Individual collagen monomeric proteins have molecular weights of between 95,000 and 125,000 Daltons. These proteins assemble into fibres which are massive aggregates and do not have defined molecular weights. To make gelatin, collagen rich materials (such as bovine hide) are cleaned and treated with dilute alkaline, or acid and heat to denature (untangle) the collagen into hot water-soluble proteins. The extract is purified and dried to form the gelatin powder.
Essentially, gelatin is thermally denatured (melted) form of collagen that makes the proteins soluble in hot water. Each stage of the manufacturing process is rigorously controlled in modern laboratories to ensure purity and quality. The process of converting collagen into gelatin involves several cleansing and purification steps. The end result is an off white dry powder of the utmost purity.This special grade of gelatin meets the specifications set forth by the U.S. Pharmacopeia, regulated by National Formulary. All grades of gelatin are prepared under the most rigid sanitary conditions.
How does Great Lakes Gelatin & Great Lakes Hydrolysate work? Hydrolyzed collagen will provide the missing nutritional links for most dietary supplements. A nitrogen balance is maintained for the support of age related collagen loss and cartilage damage. It is an excellent product for those with a sedentary lifestyle who may suffer from repetitive joint pain or discomfort.
