Why OP2 Labs Uses Nano-Hydrolyzed Collagen, the World’s Most Powerful Protein

Humans produce collagen naturally as a way to support healthy bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons – but over time, collagen production slows down. As we grow older, it becomes necessary to restore the critical animal protein by finding high-quality supplements or eating more collagen in your daily diet.

However, there is another, often undiscussed challenge when it comes to getting more collagen: the bioavailability. At OP2 Labs, they have solved this problem by using nano-hydrolyzed collagen, breaking down the collagen proteins into small enough pieces to allow for complete digestion within 15 minutes. As a result, their ProT Gold Formula can be absorbed into the body faster, accelerating recovery, mitigating the effects of pressure ulcer sores in hospitals, and shortening a patient’s hospital stay. It is for these reasons that ProT Gold is trusted by over 4,000 hospitals and clinics around the world for 15 different medical indications.

The OP2 Labs Difference – and Why it Matters

Although many collagen products are marketed as being hydrolyzed, only OP2 Labs uses nano-hydrolyzed collagen – a critical distinction that allows ProT Gold to be fully digested by the body in only 15 minutes. Collagen molecules can be measured in daltons, with most collagen molecules, before being hydrolyzed, measuring approximately 300,000 daltons.

This makes it difficult for the body to properly absorb and digest the protein. The pores in the human stomach need proteins to be approximately 4,000 daltons or smaller for digestion. For most of the collagen peptides in the industry, the average dalton size is 4x larger than the pores – much too large for the body to easily digest. This creates two problems: First, it makes it difficult for the body to digest and receive the essential nutrients that it needs. Second, it often leads to consumers ingesting very large amounts of protein – protein that ultimately leaves the body as waste because it can’t be digested in the stomach.

After years of research and development, the team at OP2 Labs designed a hydrolysis process using a natural fruit enzyme that nano-hydrolyzes collagen down to less than 1% of its size, or 2,500 daltons. Their products are 4 times more digestible than the leading whey protein and fully digestible within 15 minutes. This means consuming less protein while gaining more of its benefit – and restoring the vital collagen proteins the body needs to recover and remain strong.

The Benefits of Nano-Hydrolyzed Collagen

OP2 Labs has created nano-hydrolyzed collagen products that can be used every day to strengthen hair, skin, and nails – as well as by athletes to aid in recovery, strengthen their bones and muscles, and fortify their tendons and ligaments, leading to greater functional power.

Even more, their fortified collagen protein accelerates wound healing by up to 2x in hospitals and clinical settings. ProT Gold has been safely used by medical facilities around the world for rapid wound healing, bed sores, joint surgeries, and effective long-term care.

While collagen alone is an incomplete protein, containing 18 amino acids, OP2 Labs fortifies their collagen products to have 22 amino acids, making it a complete protein supplement. That, along with their nano-hydrolyzed technology, make ProT Gold a standout in the world of collagen supplements.
