Research In Bone and Joint
- In a 6 months randomized controlled clinical trial, 94 women with knee joint problems (osteoarthritis classification: 0-III) who received collagen peptides showed significant decrease of the WOMAC score by -22% linked to a 32% decrease in joint pain and 44% improvement of stiffness.
- A new in vivo study confirms collagen peptides role in supporting joint health, providing scientific documentation of the mechanisms behind cartilage regeneration and joint inflammation reduction.
Research In Muscle Growth And Sport Fitness
- In a double-blind, crossover trial, elderly women who consumed a diet supplemented with either whey protein or collagen peptides showed that women receiving whey protein had increased nitrogen excretion during the study period while those parameters remained stable under collagen peptides.
- During and after long periods of exercise, protein loss can occur in the muscles as their structural integrity is compromised by oxidation, membrane microlesions and inflammatory reactions. A high protein sports nutrition diet just after exercise may enhance muscle anabolism, replacing lost proteins and helping to maintain and restore the protein content of the muscles while also reducing recovery time.
Research In Chronic Kidney Disease
Collagen peptides supplementation during haemodialysis can offset protein catabolism and induce protein anabolism in forearm muscle.
Haemodialysis patients with serum albumin <35 g/L who consumed oral protein supplement showed significant better survival compare with those none in a 1 year monitoring program.
Intradialytic protein supplementation in a 6 months intervention reduced inflammation and improved physical function of haemodialysis patients.
