Where do the hydrolysed collagen and hyaluronic acid in Epaplus Arthicare come from?

Collagen is of animal origin, specifically porcine, which is the one that resembles human collagen the most. It is hydrolysed and bioasimilable collagen. The collagen is formed by chains of amino acids and, through hydrolysis, it is possible to break this chain to separate the amino acids that can generate a new healthy collagen. It should be noted that several of the amino acids contained in collagen are essential, meaning that the body cannot synthesise them, thus, they must be ingested. To synthesise new collagen, all essential acids are necessary, as well as proline and glycine, important for maintaining the helical structure of collagen. And the fact that it is bioasimilable means it is recognised by the body as an element that may be fully assimilated. Hyaluronic Acid comes from a glucose fermentation process.
