What is Collagen?

Collagen is the largest and most abundant protein in the body and is the connective tissue for almost all of our body’s structures, including muscles, bones, joints, cartilage, organs, heart, lungs, hair, skin, and nails. (1)

Why is CUP-O Collagen Best?

CUP-O Protein products are formulated with Hydrolyzed Collagen which is absorbed at a significantly higher percentage than other protein sources like whey, soy, and pea protein. (2, 3)  In fact, 95% of CUP-O Collagen is absorbed and available as small peptides in the blood stream within one hour.

CUP-O Protein’s Hydrolyzed Collagen contains 19 amino acids (the building blocks of proteins), predominately glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, which together represent around  50% of the total amino acid content.  Some amino acids found in collagen are:

Hyroxyproline, Valine, Proline, Tyrosine, Histidine, Alanine, Isoleucine, Lysine, Arginine, Glycine, Leucine, Glutamine
