New Clinical Study Links Collagen Peptides to Cardiovascular Health

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – January, 2019, Toon, Japan – Nitta Gelatin, in a collaboration with Ehime University Graduate School of Medicine, published findings from a recent double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical study investigating the effect of porcine collagen peptide supplementation on cardiovascular health in older individuals. This promising study found that daily supplementation with porcine collagen peptides (2.5g/daily for 12 weeks) resulted in a significant reduction in baPWV (brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity), a well-known predictor of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
