What are collagen peptides?
This collagen peptides powder is sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine to ensure a high quality and sustainable source of this powerful ingredient.
Collagen is a major part of connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and bones and its purpose is to provide these body parts with their strength, structure, and elasticity.
As we get older, our bodies become less efficient at producing collagen, then we need extra collagen to boost bone, skin, and hair health. I have received the Bruno MD Royal Collagen Peptides you can get it from here
