Collagen – frequently asked questions

What should you know about collagen?

After the age of 25, the ability to produce collagen in the body begins to decline, so it is worth adding supplementation to ensure that it is replenished. Also, increased exercise and stress can cause disturbances in the collagen formation process.

Collagen is the most important human protein and the main part of the body’s connective tissue base – it accounts for 30 percent. of all proteins present in the body and 70 percent. skin protein mass. It takes an active part in the vital functions of almost all systems, organs and tissues. Responsible for maintaining the proper level of skin hydration and renewing its cells. Collagen fibers are the fundamental building blocks of, among others, connective tissues, bones, joints, skin, tendons and cornea of ​​the eye.

Hydrolysed drinking collagen contains a unique composition of amino acids: glycine, proline and lysine, which, thanks to the unique spatial structure and a large number of bonds, give the collagen molecule tensile strength.


The absorption of non-hydrolysed collagen is very low (2% to 4%) due to the lack of an enzyme called collagenase. Unhydrolysed collagen should not be recommended because it is practically undigested by the human body. Such collagen is used as a filler in cheap meat products.


Is hydrolysed collagen safe?

The US Department of USDA responsible for food safety and the relevant EU directive have clearly stated that collagen hydrolysates are extremely useful and safe products approved for human consumption.


What is the origin of collagen?

Beef. Is fish collagen better than beef collagen?

The difference is slight in the amino acid composition in favor of fish, but these are trace amounts, so you can assume it doesn’t make a difference. It is of little importance from which animal the collagen is obtained. The most important thing is collagen hydrolysis. It means – into how small “pieces” the protein chain which is collagen has been divided into, so that it is easily and quickly digestible. If the particles are too large, the body will expel them before it can absorb them. The highest hydrolysis currently available is 2000Da (two thousand Daltons). Our collagen has a hydrolysis of 2000Da, which gives up to 95% absorbability.

Is collagen absorbed or is it digested in the stomach?

Hydrolysed collagen has very short bioactive peptides that change into amino acids in the stomach (proline, hydroxyproline, lysine). They are absorbed in the small intestine at the level of 95%, from where they are transported along with the blood to systems, organs and tissues. For comparison, non-hydrolysate collagen is absorbed at the level of 4%.


Can eating jellies or cold feet effectively replace collagen supplementation?

The assimilability of collagen from consumed gelatine (e.g. fruit jellies) is less than 3-4%, and slightly higher from apicals, “cold legs”, knuckles, many offal, overcooked cartilage, head and any other edible fragments of skin and other animal tissues in which collagen proteins are the dominant proteins. Therefore, it is worth including these products in your daily diet. However, for such a treatment to be effective, these products should be consumed regularly and in larger amounts. Therefore, a much better way to supplement the lack of collagen will be a treatment with Primabiotic Collagen, the absorption of which is at the level of 95%.
