General

Collagen is a dietary supplement. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) does not issue a health claim for collagen. Therefore it follows that statements and suggestions about collagen are very sensitive. We rely therefore on independent study results.

Study results on collagen and skin

Several clinical studies consistently have shown a strong effect on skin regeneration, skin hydration and skin elasticity of collagen hydrolysate with short chain collagen oligopeptides. The depth of wrinkles could be significantly and sustainably reduced. The skin was improved visibly and sustainably. The age-related decline in the synthesis of collagen and other components of the extracellular matrix of the skin could be positively influenced. These mechanisms are also discussed as the basis for the positive effects of collagen hydrolysate on individuals with cellulitis. For example, a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study in 105 women showed that daily intake of collagen hydrolysate over a 6-month period significantly improves skin density and skin texture and reduces cellulite-typical dents.

Study results on collagen for joints and bones

For more than two decades scientists have been researching the effect of collagen hydrolyzate on articular cartilage.

Initial studies by the University of Kiel have suggested that cartilage formation can be favoured by the administration of collagen hydrolyzate and show that the radioactively labeled short-chain collagen peptides can actually accumulate in the joints and stimulate cartilage formation there. Thus, for the first time both the very good bioavailability and the bioactivity of certain collagen hydrolysates with short-chain collagen peptides could be detected

But only in 2011 could the research group of McAlindon et al. in a clinically controlled gold standard study using objective parameters such as MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging using the newly developed dGEMRIC technique), prove that a collagen hydrolyzate with short-chain collagen peptides not only inhibits articular cartilage degeneration but also stimulates its regeneration.

Why protein and magnesium are important
  • Magnesium and protein contribute to the maintenance of normal bones.
  • Protein contributes to the maintenance of muscle mass.
  • Magnesium contributes to normal muscle functions.
  • Magnesium contributes to normal protein synthesis.
Vitamin C and collagen formation

Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for normal blood vessel function, bone and cartilage functions.

Vitamins and minerals are important for our metabolism
  • Magnesium, vitamin B6 and vitamin C contribute to a normal energy metabolism.
  • Vitamin B6 contributes to a normal homocysteine metabolism
  • Vitamin B6 contributes to normal protein and glycogen metabolism.
  • Vitamin B6 contributes to normal cysteine synthesis.
  • Magnesium, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C help reduce fatigue and tiredness.
  • Magnesium, vitamin B6 and vitamin C contribute to a normal mental function.
