The efficacy of collagen peptides in supporting joint health is supported by an extensive body of scientific studies
As people enjoy active lifestyles and wish to maintain mobility into their senior years, they are becoming more aware of joint and bone health starting from an early age. And it is not only those with advancing age who feel it. Even the ‘weekend warriors’ among us (who exercise once or twice a week) can often feel the strain on our joints – let alone the professional athletes! Collagen is the key structural component of cartilage tissue and maintaining its integrity is essential to maintain healthy and flexible joints.
Bones are a dynamic tissue that constantly go through a well-balanced breakdown and renewal process. This ensures them to stay healthy and to avoid fractures throughout our lives. 90% of our organic bone mass is collagen. Collagen provides the organic framework in bones on which minerals are deposited and also contribute to bone flexibility and strength. With age or certain lifestyle choices, bones can deteriorate.
Discover the science behind Peptan.
Extracted from natural sources, Peptan IIm is a unique hydrolyzed cartilage matrix that contains bioactive Type II collagen peptides and glycosaminoglycans - chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid. The components it contains are effective to protect healthy cartilage from degeneration (1).
In an in vivo study (1), Peptan IIm has been demonstrated to be effective at a low dose corresponding to 0.75g/day in humans. In models of post-traumatic osteoarthritis in both normal-weight or obese animals, Peptan IIm:
In a clinical trial (2), 94 women aged 40-70 with knee joint problems received 8g of Peptan or placebo daily for a period of 6 months.
In a recently published study (3) Peptan has been shown to stimulate the activity of bone-forming cells and at the same time to inhibit the function of bone-resorbing cells. This result is in line with previous studies performed with Peptan (4)(5).
