Hydrolyzed collagen stimulates cell growth in joint cartilage. This natural substance induces the formation of new cartilage tissue and restores cartilage degradation resulting from sports activity, work related stress and the natural aging process. People suffering from joint problems may regain mobility and enjoy much-improved quality of life.
Collagen Hydrolysate Type II (93.4%/sachet): Provides a uniquely healthful amino acid profile to help maintain the structure of various connective tissues of the skin, bone, tendon and ligaments.
Accumulates in cartilage tissue and stimulates the production of Type II collagen and proteoglycans in the extracellular matrix of cartilage.
Hyaluronic Acid (0.6%/sachet): Found abundantly in synovial fluid to maintain high fluid viscosity and the normal integrity of joint.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) (5%/sachet): It is a micronutrient which exert anti-inflammatory effect which may help to reduce pain and injury due to daily activities (indoor & outdoor) when used in combination with Type II collagen.
Vitamin C (1%/sachet): Vitamin C is a necessary co-factor in collagen synthesis and is known to increase the production of collagen and promote the synthesis of new, healthy collagen in the body.
There have been medical observations, key laboratory and clinical studies on the effect of the Collagen Hydrolysate on joint health carried out over the past 20 years by international leading experts of different medical disciplines.
All clinical studies reveal positive effects of Collagen Hydrolysate on joint health, especially on osteoarthritis, for example: significant reduction of pain; reduced need for analgesics; improvement of joint mobility.
Studies conducted by Dr Roland Moskowitz, Director of the Arthritis Research Institute, Cleveland/USA and Prof. Milan Adam, Professor of Rheumatology at the University of Prague reveal the positive effects of Collagen Hydrolysate on joint health, especially on osteoarthritis.

Dr. Steffen Oesser, physiologist at the University of Kiel, Germany, estimated roughly that approximately 90% of the orally administered collagen hydrolysate would be absorbed 5 times faster than just collagen within 6 hours from the gastrointestinal tract. This means Collagen Hydrolysate is easily digested and absorbed into the body to reach targeted joint areas.
