Collagen & Gut Healing Amino Acids

Collagen & Gut Healing Amino Acids

 Collagen is a major component in supporting and healing our gut lining. The lining of our gut helps to keep harmful substances out of the body and supports proper nutrient absorption.


The amino acid in collagen glycine is anti-inflammatory, hydrating and protective of the thyroid, it helps to heal the intestinal lining and supports weak stomach acid. 

Amino acids make up proteins and the particular ratios of certain amino acids make the protein in question either pro-inflammatory or non-inflammatory to the body when eaten. Gelatin (and Collagen Hydrolysate) contains only minimal cystein, methionine and histadine, and no tryptophan: these amino acids are inflammatory, inhibit thyroid function, depresses immunity, decrease the body's ability to withstand stress and are associated with many problems of degeneration and ageing.

Collagen contains several amino acids that are important glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline are amino acids that are found in high concentrations in collagen and are known to support the growth and repair of the gut lining.

Collagen has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to reduce inflammation in the gut. The gut barrier is a layer of cells that lines the intestinal wall and helps to prevent harmful substances from passing through into the bloodstream. Collagen has been shown to support the growth and repair of the cells that make up the gut barrier, which can help to reduce inflammation by preventing the entry of harmful substances into the body.

Suppotring digestion, Collagen contains the amino acid glycine, which can help to improve digestion by increasing stomach acid production and promoting the breakdown of food. Along with amino acids, such as proline, and glutamine, These amino acids are needed to build and repair the gut lining, which is essential for optimal digestion.
