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 decomposed into 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.  Fat solidifies on top.

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

Collagen Peptide or often referred to as hydrolyzed collagen is developed to solve this problem. Hydrolyzed collagen is small molecular substance which decomposes from protein. Fishkol high quality hydrolyzed collagen originates from natural food grade raw material does not contain fat and absorption rate is very high by our body.

Is there any method to slow down the aging of collagen and to improve one’s health?

Metabolism of collagen in human body is to remove aged collagen fiber and to synthesizes new collagen fiber for substitution. Under influence of age and ultraviolet radiation factors, these two processes are declining. Research by Professor Fujimoto Daisaburo from Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology indicated that intake of collagen in daily diet is very important to promote the metabolism of collagen in human body. Professor Fujimoto suggested that supplement of collagen to start for those who are around 25 years old.
