Prevent activity-related joint pain with ingestible collagen
December 20, 2018
Regardless of your level as an ‘athlete’, anyone who has ever performed physical activity understands the pain and soreness that can be associated with it.
Physical activity can have a wearing effect on your body, and as the main structural protein of connective tissue, collagen is essential for proper joint function.
Collagen is the most abundant and main structural protein in the human body, our building block, and is responsible for ‘glueing’ us together and healing.
Probably the biggest barrier to increasing physical performance is soreness and pain or injury. If you’d like to fulfil your highest level potential – then you should consume collagen daily.
Our bones, tendons, ligaments and muscle are all made up of collagen. After exercising, we can get soreness. Collagen peptides trigger bone formation, and increases bone mineral density. Collagen also triggers an anabolic effect on cartilage tissue, maintaining the structure of the joint and aiding joint comfort.
And this has been recently tested and proven in a study undertaken by the journal of Current Medical Research and Opinion.
The objective was to investigate the effects of hydrolysed collagen on activity-related joint pain in athletes who had no history of joint disease.
The randomised, placebo-controlled, double-blind study took 24-weeks and participants ingested 10ml of collagen versus placebo. In total 72 men and 75 women took part.
The study concluded: "The results of this study have implications for the use of collagen hydrolysate to support joint health and possibly reduce the risk of joint deterioration in a high-risk group. Despite the study's size and limitations, the results suggest that athletes consuming collagen hydrolysate can reduce parameters (such as pain) that have a negative impact on athletic performance."
