Bones and Joints

liquid hydrolyzed collagenAll bones are composed of two types of tissue - a hard compact shell and a soft inner network of protein fibers and mineral salts, called spongy bone. The dense, but porous, shell is designed to provide strength and is organized into cylinders called Haversian systems. The shell gets its strength from minerals, such as calcium and phosphorus which make up two thirds of the bone. The remainder of bone is made mostly of proteins such as collagen. These proteins provide a matrix over which the minerals can be laid down. The human body needs a system of firm supports to give it shape, hold it together and protect delicate internal organs.
predigested collagenMuscle and connective tissue surround a solid skeleton of bone and cartilage like walls surround girders in the framework of a building. However, unlike a building where the beams and girders are rigid, the body must be able to move. To allow such mobility, the bones are connected to each other by articulated joints, which depend on collagen for their structure and function.

Clinical studies conducted in Europe over the past decade, suggest orally administered Hydrolyzed Collagen preparations improve systems associated with joint damage and/or inflammation. Healthy cartilage tissue and joint function depend on a continuous balance of metabolism and renewal of collagen and proteoglycans.

Hydrolyzed Collagen studies which involved patients receiving collagen therapy reported improvements with respect to pain intensity. Greater than 90% of the patients reported a "good" or "very good" response with respect to pain and need for medication. Hydrolyzed Collagen powder is clearly safe when administered in suggested amounts, typically 5 to 10 grams per day.

Extensive toxicology evidence indicates that oral consumption of collagen involves no indentifiable health risk. In fact, collagen is regarded by the Food and Drug Administration as a food substance with GRAS (generally regarded as safe) status.
