What Is Hydrolyzed Collagen?

Collagen is a type of structural protein found throughout the body, including in the muscles, tendons, joints, skin and digestive system. In fact, it’s the most abundant protein in the human body, accounting for 30 percent or more of connective tissues.

Collagen protein is also found in vertebrate animals, which are the source of collagen supplements. These supplements go by a number of different names, including hydrolyzed collagen powder (aka collagen hydrolysate) and collagen peptides.


What’s the difference between collagen and hydrolyzed collagen (which is often considered one of the best forms)?

In addition to being derived from different sources, certain types of collagen — including hydrolyzed collagen peptides — have been processed differently (even down to the size of the peptides), leading to changes in the way that they’re handled by the body.

Pure hydrolyzed collagen peptides, in particular, are made in a way that typically makes it much easier for your body to put them to work.

What Type Of Collagen Is Hydrolyzed Collagen?

While all collagen supplements are hydrolyzed to some extent, some are more so than others.

The definition of "hydrolyzed" is to break down a compound. Hydrolyzed collagen powder is the type that has been broken down into smaller individual collagen peptides, which are typically easier for your body to use and absorb. In this form, collagen protein is associated with several benefits including: generally supporting a healthy gut, skin, hair, nails and joints.

When collagen peptides are "fully hydrolyzed," this means they will dissolve in any temperature liquid, whether hot or cold, plus they won’t have any overly apparent taste or smell.

Hydrolyzed Collagen

What is hydrolyzed collagen made out of? Hydrolyzed collagen is made out of multiple amino acids (called "the building blocks of protein") that are linked together, including the types called glycine, proline and arginine.

The hydrolyzation process breaks down chains that bind amino acids in collagen together. This is done via the work of enzymes that essentially help to do some of the "digesting" of collagen protein for you.

Once smaller units of protein are broken down, which is done in order to make them more absorbable, they are called collagen peptides. When it comes to supplement terminology, some of the time collagen peptides and hydrolyzed collagen are referring to the same things.

General Benefits

Hydrolyzed collagen peptides have been associated with many general health benefits, ranging from gut and digestive support to improved exercise recovery and performance.

Here Are A Few Of The Top Reasons To Consider Adding This Supplement To Your Routine

  1. Supports Gut Health
    1. Acting as the “glue” that holds the body together, collagen is found throughout the body, including the gut. Hydrolyzed collagen is generally easily absorbed and can help support overall gut health by maintaining gut lining integrity, which assists in nutrient absorption and plays a role in generally supporting healthy immune system function.
  2. Supports Healthy Joints
    1. Collagen protein is considered a key component of cartilage and connective tissues including muscles, joints and tendons. For this reason, using a hydrolyzed collagen supplement can be a great option to support the health and function of the joints, especially among people who are interested in supporting overall comfort, mobility and range of motion.
  3. Supports Healthy Hair, Skin and Nails
    1. Because collagen is found throughout the hair, skin and nails, many people use collagen supplements to help support skin health and hair health as part of a natural approach to skin care and beauty routine.

Collagen vs. Colostrum

First of all, since colostrum is often compared to collagen let’s go over what collagen is.

Collagen is a protein in the human body, found naturally in bones, muscle, teeth, and hair. Collagen peptides have become a popular supplement that people believe can improve skin health and – for men in particular — contribute to better muscle mass and strength.

Root Brands chose their source of Collagen after experiments colcluded that the sinew between the skin and muscle produced the most efficacious Collagen product. The video above references the "experimental" products

We generally consume collagen supplements in pill or powder form, mixed into foods, drinks, or smoothies: Which leads us to colostrum.


Colostrum is the first food a mother creates for her offspring, which helps them thrive outside the womb. But we’re not talking about the potential of taking human colostrum. Instead, bovine colostrum has been the subject of new research that believes this superfood can improve skin health, athletic recovery, and even immune health. Some people are calling it "liquid gold".

Why is WHOLE COLOSTRUM Listed As An Ingredient?

There are various stages of colostrum that the mother cow produces. GMBMY contains Whole Colostrum. Cheap Colostrum Supplements contain one of the other 3 stages of Colostrum production.

  1. It is pure colostrum (Whole Colostrum - collected within 48 hours of the birth of the calf)
  2. Colostrum with some milk being produced and mixed with the colostrum (collected after 48 hours of the birth of the calf)
  3. Colostrum with a lot of milk being produced and mixed with the colostrum (collected after 48 hours of the birth of the calf)
  4. Pure milk with no colostrum (basically powdered whole milk product)

Bovine Colostrum

Colostrum is known as "nature's superfood", and has historically been associated with human breastfeeding as the first form of food a mother provides her newborn. It’s packed with nutrients and is essential for newborns to help build and support their immune systems. Although it’s well established as a necessity for early life nutrition, substantial research has shown its components continue to play an important role in maintaining health throughout all stages of life.

Still iffy about the process? Let’s talk benefits.


Research on colostrum from cows indicates bovine colostrum promotes and helps maintain a healthy immune and a GI system that is very unaffected by the usual adverse effects of NSAIDs (non-steroidal drugs such as aspirin and ibuprofen) on the GI. In other words, it has more of a probiotic effect than collagen.

Colostrum naturally contains important and diverse probiotics important to gut health and contains immune and growth factors. It's safe for consumers to couple both colostrum and probiotics into their daily diet to help colonize the bacteria and stimulate strong gut health.

The bovine colostrum we’ve been talking about can help support digestive health including gut barrier integrity and function with issues such as leaky gut. Not sure if you have those? Check for symptoms like bloating, gas, digestive issues, and food sensitivities, then go to your doctor’s office to verify.

Cow colostrum has also been shown to support the body in fighting off bacteria and other nasty invaders while being beneficial for respiratory health. Many studies have found that it significantly decreased the risk of upper respiratory tract infections.

Athletic Application

Colostrum may help you get big and strong also. Athletes may want to start taking Colostrum as an athletic supplement. Research shows that bovine Colostrum supports stronger, faster athletic recovery.

Going hard in a workout can also lead to leaky gut issues and other gut stressors, but colostrum may help with that.

In a study from The European Journal of Nutrition, professional soccer players on a training regimen who consumed 3.2g of bovine colostrum a day for six weeks showed a dramatic increase in athleticism including increased squat jump height, increased countermovement jump height, and decreased blood levels of markers related to muscle damage.
