The collagen present in foods is a chain of about 3,000 pieces of amino acids. General collagen supplements consist of a chain of about 30 to 100 pieces of amino acids.
Those 2 types of collagen are too big to be absorbed as they are by our intestines. They are delivered into our body after digestion by gastrointestinal enzymes.
Tripeptide’s minimum unit of collagen consists of 3 amino acids. Tripeptide differs from conventional collagens - it is absorbed by the intestinal tract directly.
Even more surprisingly, Tripeptide has the innovative characteristic of being absorbed by collagen-affiliated organs such as the skin, bones, cartilages, and tendons preferentially.
Moreover, various functions of Tripeptide have been confirmed, such as activation of the body’s ability to produce new collagen and hyaluronic acid, making bones and tendons stronger, and so on.
The following link shows the relationship between the whole amino acid sequence of type I collagen and CTP.
Studies have shown that cell senescence is closely related to Progerin. As we age, premature aging proteins accumulate more and more in the body, leading to nuclear defects and DNA damage, resulting in a series of skin aging phenomena. Tripeptide is an active tripeptide derived from elastase inhibitor (Elafin). It can reduce the synthesis of Progerin, and improve skin sagging and wrinklest.
As an expensive collagen peptide, although it can be used as a food additive and has better activity than ordinary collagen peptide, but Tripeptide is often used as a cosmetic raw material to achieve the purpose of anti-wrinkle and improve skin quality. It is often used in face, neck and hand care products, and can be added to beauty skin care products, such as lotions, morning and evening creams, eye essences Wait.
This situation continues until the hydrolysis process has undergone huge innovations. Since the 21st century, the hydrolysis process has broken through the technical bottleneck, and the directional enzymatic hydrolysis process has made the hydrolysis of tripeptide a reality. From the 10% tripeptide content in the Japanese market to the 20% tripeptide content in South Korea, and the large-scale production of 20% tripeptide in the Chinese market, the content of Tripeptide continues to increase. Moreover, the hydrolysis process has made hydrolyzed Tripeptide a new type of food due to its safety and high efficiency. Not only that, hydrolyzed Tripeptide can still be used in cosmetics collection, and effectively reduces the cost of cosmetics.
Tripeptide is made by using the world's most advanced composite enzyme gradient directional digestion technology. It is a unique global patent protection technology that can cut off the basic unit of collagen (glycine-XY) in a targeted manner to improve Improve the purity of collagen tripeptide and reduce the distribution of collagen peptides with large molecular weight.
