Hydrolysed Collagen has been specifically developed to deliver multiple health benefits and functional properties. Numerous scientific studies, including in-vitro, in-vivo and clinical research, have demonstrated Hydrolysed Collagen’s ability to promote healthy living and its proven benefits in key areas:
Promoting skin beauty from within: For many of us, maintaining a youthful and attractive appearance is crucial. Hydrolysed Collagen provides an important support structure for skin to ensure this. Hydrolysed Collagen is scientifically proven to be a powerful anti-aging ingredient, promoting skin elasticity, suppleness and hydration.
Research suggests that ingestion of collagen peptides triggers the synthesis of new collagen fibers, supporting skin tissue structure and mechanical strength.
A recent French clinical study shows that Hydrolysed Collagen promote collagen formation in the deeper layers of the dermis, thereby improving skin’s collagen network from within by reducing collagen fragmentation by 18% in just one month and 31% after three months.
This promotes suppler and younger looking skin. Previous Japanese and French clinical trials have found that Hydrolysed Collagen can increase skin hydration levels by 28% after eight weeks, reduce wrinkles formation and boost skin suppleness by 19% in 12 weeks.
Keeping moving – maintaining healthy joints, bones and muscle: Staying active and healthy for longer is key to maintaining a good quality of life as we get older. Hydrolysed Collagen is uniquely positioned to help achieve this goal, thanks to its scientifically proven benefits linked to musculoskeletal health.
It can help prevent the negative effects of osteoarthritis, osteopenia (loss of bone mass) and sarcopenia (loss of muscle mass).
Hydrolysed Collagen can promote chondrocytes (cartilage cells) synthesis, producing increased aggrecan and collagen type 2, the two main components of cartilage. This can reduce the cartilage-degrading effects of osteoarthritis.
A recent clinical study has also confirmed Hydrolysed Collagen’s efficacy in reducing joint pain and improving joint health.
Osteopenia is an age-related condition which results in reduced bone mineral density (BMD). Hydrolysed Collagen has been proven in multiple in-vivo studies to stimulate osteoblasts (bone formation cells), restoring BMD and increasing bone size and strength.
Research has also indicated that Hydrolysed Collagen could be more effective than whey protein in preserving muscle mass during the consumption of an older person’s typically low protein diet.
Effective blends for sports and active nutrition: Multiple studies demonstrate the benefits Hydrolysed Collagen provide for sports recovery after exercise and in fitness/weight management programs, making it the clear choice for use in balanced protein blends for sports and active nutrition.
Bioactive proteins, such as collagen peptides, are recognized as an effective supplement to maintain and restore the protein content of muscles following exercise.
Hydrolysed Collagen may also support the synthesis of creatine – which aids muscular contractions during periods of high intensity exercise.
It can also support joint health after high impact exercise. And, with the number of obese and overweight people on the increase, solutions that offer a satiating benefit are also in demand.
Hydrolysed Collagen, as a pure protein, has an appetite suppressing effect which may be helpful in weight management programs.
