Collagen Peptides highlighted in “Foods for Bone and Joint Health” by Prepared Foods Magazine

May 2018 – Collagen peptides were highlighted in Prepared Foods Magazine’s recent article entitled “Functional Foods for Bone and Joint Health” – “Tendons, cartilage, and ligaments are made up of collagen, a structural protein that accounts for between a quarter and a third of all the protein in the body. While humans are adept at building these tissues from dietary protein of all sources, adding collagen peptides to formulations has been shown to help build and maintain these vital tissues. In a 2015 overview of the science published in the journal Nutrición Hospitalaria, the authors concluded that collagen hydrolysate—collagen peptides or gelatin—can help to “reduce and prevent joint pain, bone density loss, and skin aging.” The authors also noted that the results of the study indicate that the high level of tolerance and safety make collagen hydrolysate ingestion attractive for long-term use in combatting bone and joint degenerative diseases and in the fight against skin aging.” Click here to read the full article.
