Collagen-Rich Foods

Where does the collagen required by human body usually come from?

Collagen is commonly found in animal-derived foods. Animal’s skin, scales, tendon, ligaments, bone, cartilage and internal organ in our food is rich with collagen. When these collagen entered our body, it will first be digested to amino acid (basic composition unit of protein) before transported to every spot of the body, and synthesized into collagen required by our body.

Meat, fish and poultry products supply collagen, but the most collagen-rich parts usually don’t make it to your plate. Tendons, cartilage and skin consist mainly of collagen and cooks often trim out these tough and fatty tissues.

Bones also contain much collagen, but they seldom become part of the meal. You could make collagen soups with the scraps and bones instead of throwing them out.

The liquid that accumulates in a roasting pan beneath meat or poultry also makes a thick collagen broth. As the liquid cools, the collagen portion forms a layer of gelatin in the bottom of the pan with fat solidifies on top.

What is the healthier, more effective method to supplement collagen and delays aging?

Fishkol collagen originates from natural food grade raw material does not contain fat and has low molecular weight so absorption rate is very high by our body. The human body responds just as naturally to it as your own self-produced collagen.

Moreover, compare to collagen which obtains from traditional cooking method which has high molecular weight thus difficult to be absorbed by our body. Further, Fishkol collagen does not require preparation and cooking, one can mix at will conveniently in drinks which one likes during working or travelling.
