Benefits of Non-Hydrolyzed Collagen
HELIX3 Bioactive Collagen consists of 100% Type 1, non-hydrolyzed bovine collagen, retaining up to 10 times more native helical protein structure. This allows for better molecule stability, necessary for the extracellular matrix (ECM) to form and promote granulation tissue development. When hydrolyzed, the native tropocollagen structure of collagen is broken down into its component amino acids—Glycine, Proline, and Hydroxypoline. Because the bonds of these proteins have been chemically severed, the body must expend unnecessary energy to reassemble the collagen structure before scaffolding can begin, delaying the healing process.
