PURE Collagen Peptides

Collagen Powder Benefit for Muscles

Collagen Peptides are hydrolysed collagen fractures consisting of specific amino acid structures unique to collagen. These unique collagen peptides are highly bioavailable with a clinically proven absorption of 90%.


Studies confirm that PEPTAN® Collagen Peptides has a significant role as a sports recovery solution and help prevents injuries.

Collagen is a key component of the extracellular matrix sheath that en-wraps the muscle fibers, Collagen supplementation might either prevent damage to the sheath or allow it to repair more quickly.

Peptan helps to accelerate the process of recovery from muscle damage induced by intense exercise.

Collagen improves overall joint and bone strength, allowing for better mobility and thus supporting another vital aspect of an active lifestyle.

Collagen Powder Benefits Muscle

Tendons and ligaments are the connective tissue supporting the muscle and bones. These powerful tissues consist mainly of collagen type I. 85% of Tendons and 70% of Ligaments (measured on dry weight) consist of collagen type I.

It is therefore important to supplement with collagen type I to supply the correct amino acid peptides to serve as building blocks.


More about collagen Powder

Clinically proven efficacy, safety and quality. Collagen peptide powder for skin health, joint health, bone health, connective tissue health.

Collagen makes up 30%of the protein in the body, it gives structure to your skin, bones and other tissue in the body and is commonly known as “The Glue That Keeps The Body Together”.

Sontal collagen peptide powder is hydrolysed collagen Type I, the most abandoned collagen in the body.

Collage Type I makes up 90% of all the collagen in the body and are predominantly found in the skin, bone, tendons, fibrocartilage and ligaments. It is a dense collagen fibre, the collagen with the highest tensile strength.

Typically, on dry-mass,

  • 75% of the skin,
  • 90% of organic bone,
  • 85% of Tendons,
  • 70% of Cartilage, (Type I Fibro-cartilage and Type II elastic and hyaline cartilage)
  • 70% of Ligaments

consists of collagen Type I.

Collagen benefits the body in a number of ways


  1. Skin Health: Collagen is the support structure of the skin and gives skin its firm properties, it is also the structure for elastin and hyaluronic acid to bind to. Elastin gives skin its elasticity and hyaluronic acid helps with keeping the skin moist and plump.
  2. Bone Health: Collagen is the “scaffold” for bone and gives bone its structure. 90% of organic bone consists of collagen and is the framework for minerals like Calcium to bind to. Collagen gives the bones its strong flexible nature and prevents bone fractures.
  3. Connective Tissue Health: Tendons consist 85% of collagen type I. A tendon is a fibrous connective tissue that attaches muscle to bone. Tendons may also attach muscles to structures such as the eyeball. A tendon serves to move the bone or structure. Collagen gives this essential tissue its strength and flexibility.
  4. Cartilage Health: 70% of the tissue in the cartilage is collagen. There are two distinct collagen types found in cartilage, Type I Fibro-cartilage and Type II elastic and hyaline cartilage. Collagen Type II is mainly found in elastic cartilage and hyaline cartilage and is a weaker type of collagen. Hyaline cartilage is glass-like (hyaline) but translucent cartilage found on many joint surfaces. It is also most commonly found in the ribs, nose, larynx, and trachea.
  5. Ligament Health: 70% of the tissue in the ligaments consists of collagen. Description. Ligaments are short tough, flexible tissue, made up of lots of individual fibres, which connect your bones together. The function of a ligament is to provide a passive limit to the amount of movement between your bones.

Collagen powder is an important supplement in maintaining the collagen stores in the body.
