Hydrolyzed Collagen is a protein made from animal products.



  • A kind of arthritis called osteoarthritis. There is some clinical evidence that gelatin might relieve pain and improve joint function in patients with osteoarthritis.
  • Brittle bones (osteoporosis).
  • Strengthening bones and joints.
  • Strengthening fingernails.
  • Improving hair quality.
  • Weight loss.
  • Shortening recovery after exercise and sports-related injury.
  • Other conditions.


  • Hydrolyzed collagen as a food supplement came about later on, once scientists learned to break the long chain triple helix protein into shorter pieces, and then to separate the 3 helices from each other. The resulting short individual peptides make up hydrolyzed collagen. Cleaving peptides into sections is known as hydrolysis.
  • With high end collagen supplements, the protein breakdown is pre-engineered and much more thorough, resulting in a more uniform result: usable small chain peptides and amino acids, ready to go.
  • Quality hydrolyzed collagen supplements are made from high grade gelatin, which has been extracted from cattle hides. The first step of processing separates the skin’s outer layer from the inner layer. The outer layer is used in the leather industry. The inner layer is used by the gelatin industry.

    Gelatin is 83% protein, 15% water, and 2% minerals.


  • Hydrolyzed Collagen can cause an unpleasant taste, sensation of heaviness in the stomach, bloating, heartburn, and belching. Hydrolyzed Collagen can cause allergic reactions in some people.
  • There is some concern about the safety of Hydrolyzed Collagen because it comes from animal sources. Some people are worried that unsafe manufacturing practices might lead to contamination of gelatin products with diseased animal tissues including those that might transmit mad cow disease (bovine spongiform encephalopathy). Although this risk seems to be low, many experts advise against using animal-derived supplements like gelatin.
