Our hydrolysed collagen type I contains Proline, hydroxy-proline and glycine, which are important amino acids required for ligament and tendon strength.
- Collagen structurally supports tendons and ligaments. Tendons connect muscles with bones and exist for 85% out of collagen type I fibers. Ligaments exist for 80% of collagen type I fibers.
