What is Hydrolyzed Collagen?

Collagen is structural, fibrous protein found in humans and animals, particularly in areas such as tendons, bones, skin, and cartilage. It serves as a connective tissue which makes up roughly 30% of the human body’s protein content, making it the most abundant source of protein in our bodies. When boiled, Collagen becomes gelatin.

Hyrdrolyzed Collagen is a processed form of Collagen that is obtained by breaking down Collagen fibers utilizing heat or caustic solutions. It contains 20 different amino acids, including 8 of the 9 essential amino acids. Essential amino acids cannot be created the human body, which means that the only way our bodies can acquire them is through ingestion.


Where is Hydrolyzed Collagen used?

Hydrolyzed Collagen (also known as Collagen Peptides) is becoming a very popular protein substitute.  It is naturally found in humans & animals and is revolutionizing the way people consume and utilize protein.  It is fat-free, cholesterol free and easily digestible in liquid form.  The human body absorbs and utilizes liquid collagen more efficiently compared to powder and other forms.  Hydrolyzed Collagen is high in essential amino acids and is effectively zero allergenic.   It is being used in the medical field to help with recovery from sore joint recovery, cancer recovery treatment, and post-surgery treatments.  Collagen is also commonly used as meal replacement for those who want to reduce weight.  It helps maintain blood sugar levels while providing essential Amino Acids, giving an immediate boost of energy.  Hydrolyzed collagen is naturally caffeine free.

How can Hydrolyzed Collagen benefit my health?

Hydrolyzed Collagen has many health applications, and has been utilized in a variety of medical and physical health initiatives by people around the world.

Hydrolyzed Collagen for Athletes, Muscle growth, and Joint Pain

In the United States, the CDC reported results from a 2010 survey that roughly 30% of adults are experiencing joint pain, backpain, or arthritis. Using hydrolyzed collagen is not only a beneficial as an aid to relieve joint and muscle pain, but also is shown to be an effective preventative for such problems.
Branched-chain amino acids, which are contained in hydrolyzed collagen, improve the body’s synthesis of protein while also increasing the capacity for protein synthesis. These combined effects result in gains for both muscle mass and generation. Additionally, clinic trials have shown that hydrolyzed collagen dietary supplements assist athletes with joint pain and reduce the risk of joint deterioration. A 24-week trial which studied 147 subjects who were provided with either a collagen hydrolysate or a placebo produced significant results in reduced joint pain and improved overall performance.

Hydrolyzed Collagen for Weight Loss

Hydrolyzed collagen has been utilized in energy bars because it helps curb your appetite. While products containing collagen should not be your sole source of nutrition, they can help keep you from snacking between meals, and help burn excess fat when paired with exercise. While there have been no clinical studies to support or deny claims of weight loss from Hydrolyzed Collagen alone, many doctors agree that it provides a usable protein that supports the body’s functions and gives you the energy needed to support you throughout the day.


Hydrolyzed Collagen for Post-surgery Treatment

Invasive procedures such as arthroscopic surgery, herniated disc surgery, or reattachment of muscles or tendons are often a solution for situations arising from traumatic injuries. Muscle tissues or tendons that are torn need time to heal, and are never fully regenerated. This is why it is especially important to assist in the healing process as much as possible.  A 2011 study performed by the US Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine showed that the supplement of essential amino acids found in hydrolyzed collagen increased muscle protein synthesis, resulting in improved muscle growth. When combined with you doctor-recommended therapy, this can greatly decrease muscle recovery time and improve overall muscle growth.

Hydrolyzed Collagen for Cancer Treatment & Recovery

Cancer is a degenerative disease that takes a toll on your body, causing fatigue and loss of appetite, among other symptoms. Combined with the process of chemotherapy, which is detrimental to both your healthy and cancerous cells, the disease and treatment of cancer is extremely degenerative to muscles and tissues, and can lead to prolonged loss of appetite and fatigue. Doctors, as well as the American Cancer Society, recommend additional supplements of protein to heal tissues and help fight infection. For patients that have a reduced appetite, we recommend our ISOSHOT or ISOCURE Liquid Protein products, which contain hydrolyzed collagen as a high value protein source, with no protein after-taste.

Hydrolyzed Collagen for Skin Aging

As skin is the largest organ of the human body, care for it should not be taken lightly. The aging process of skin introduces visible alterations such as wrinkles, dehydration, and looseness. Habits such as smoking, drinking, and even stress or sleep deprivation are known to speed up your skin’s aging process. Hydrolyzed collagen is a known advocate of healthier, smoother skin. In fact, a clinical study was conducted in 2012, involving 26 women with mild to moderately damaged skin. Over the course of 12 weeks, the subjects ingested hydrolyzed collagen daily, and were monitored for indications of an increase or decrease of skin dryness/scaling, fine lines, and wrinkles. The results from the study showed a significant decrease in fine lines and wrinkles, as well as an average of 8% increase in hydration of the outermost layer of their skin.

How ISHOSHOT & ISOCURE Liquid Protein use Hydrolyzed Collagen
isoshotgroup blog

ISOSHOT and ISCURE liquid protein are formulated as a meal supplement for weight loss or for indications including protein-energy malnutrition, involuntary weight loss, pre-and post-surgery, trauma and cancer.

Our ISO products provide 15 g of liquid protein, which differs greatly from other proteins due to their high content of amino acids: Glycine, Proline and Hydroxyproline in a concentration that is approximately 10-20 times higher than any other leading proteins in the market. Their proprietary blend of amino acids and pure collagen are absorbed more efficiently into the blood stream compared to other protein supplemental products in the market. Insufficient supplies of these amino acids results in painful joints, brittle finger nails and hair.  ISOSHOT’s Collagen Hydrolysate also has preventive and regenerative effect on bones, cartilage and tendons. 

ISOSHOT & ISOCURE Serving size  = 34 ml (1packet)
Glycine :              4.53g
Proline:               2.58g
HydroxyProline:    2.22g

An ISOSHOT or ISOCURE liquid collagen protein supplement program can be an effective method to support weight loss, strong bones and connective tissues as well as improvements in skin, hair and nail appearance.  They can help improve skin elasticity, joint function and supports an increased metabolism and helps firm and tone your body.  These products are a collagen peptide building block which do not react with drugs or other foods or ingredients, bringing about a phase of regeneration and stability in joint cartilage.

Recommended Usage of ISOSHOT & ISOCURE to benefit from Hydrolyzed Collagen

As hydrolyzed collagen is a protein, it can supplement your daily protein intake, including essential amino acids which your body cannot produce. Our ISHOSHOT and ISOCURE products both come in a variety of flavors, and are fat/cholesterol free. They are specifically formulated to meet your protein needs, and are fiber enhanced to aide in other dietary initiatives. Typically, adults are recommended to have an intake of at least 46 grams of protein per day for women and at least 56 grams of protein for men. Special needs arising from injury, surgery, cancer treatment, or joint pain recovery increase the need for essential proteins, and it is recommended to discuss with your doctor about your recommended intake. Both ISHOSHOT and ISOCURE contain 15 grams of protein per serving, and because of their utilization of hydrolyzed collagen, take advantage of the many benefits mentioned in this article. Additionally, ISOCURE is fortified with bone health supplements as an added boost for joint and bone-related recovery or strengthening.
