Hydrolyzed gelatin is also known as hydrolyzed collagen protein or HCP. It is derived from the building blocks of connective tissue.
Hydrolyzed gelatin is an incomplete protein.
However, it is one of the best sources of the amino acids (protein building blocks) that comprise collagen.
These are glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, lysine and hydroxylysine. Hydrolyzed gelatin is therefore believed to be an excellent source of concentrated nourishment for bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and skin.
