What’s Da? (molecular weight)

Da stands for Dalton, which is a unit of measurement of molecular weight. The average Dalton weight of the marine collagen peptide used by Ingenious Beauty is below 2,000 Da, many other brands use a collagen peptide of 5,000 Da or higher, and this larger molecule means the collagen is often too large to be absorbed by the small intestine before it has been broken down into constituent amino acids by the body’s digestive processes. By contrast, 2,000 Da, is an ideal molecular weight for the rapid absorption and bioavailability of collagen peptide.
