4 tips to boost collagen for beautiful, healthy skin [slideshow]

#2 Collagen hydrolysate

Hydrolyzed collagen peptides are readily available as collagen hydrolysate — a form of gelatin. Gelatin is collagen protein derived mainly from the bones of animals. It’s one of the reasons there has been a huge renewal in interest for bone broth.

But if you’re not into boiling bones in your kitchen, you could try collagen hydrolysate in a powdered form that easily dissolves in cold water or other drinks like juice or smoothies. It’s also available in supplement form that may be powder or liquid.

Hydrolyzed collagen peptides don’t gel like gelatin therefore it’s easier to digest. For this reason it’s believed to be a very bioavailable form of collagen that your body can quickly absorb and put to use right away.

There are brands of collagen hydrosolate you can find online that verify their products come from grass fed and humanely raised cows, and that would be my only recommendation.
