Collagen is the main structural protein of the various connective tissues in all humans and animals. Collagen is also the main component of connective tissue; it is the most abundant protein in mammals, making up from 25-35% of the whole-body protein content, which in turn is approximately 30% of total body mass.
There are numerous types of collagen hydrolysate in the marketplace; collagen hydrolysate can be derived from fish (marine), chicken sternum, porcine and bovine. However to date there is no clinical evidence that any collagen other than from a bovine source actually works. This research has been authenticated by the CRI (Collagen Research Institute) which is based in Kiel, Germany and headed by the world’s leading authority on Collagen Hydrolysate research Dr Steffen Oesser.
You also have to take into account the production method and the grade of collagen. This plays a huge factor in whether you will see results for skin or for connective tissue. For tissue repair which incorporates ligaments, tendons, muscles and cartilage you require far larger amounts of collagen than what is required for beauty, where 1.2-2.4 grams per day is proven to be sufficient.
When dealing with tissue damage from sports injuries or from the wear and tear of age, which can manifest itself in osteoarthritis or other such age related connective tissue issues, you require approximately 3 to 5 grams of collagen per day. This is best taken at night due to the body’s ability to repair during Alpha sleep (first two hours of the deep sleep cycle). British Equines collagen hydrolysate tablets are the most effective way to deliver such a large dose of collagen at this time of day.
