News & Research:

  • Collagen supplements show early promise for skin and joints, but don’t stock up yet - Washington Post, 3/26/18 - "As we age, however, our bodies’ collagen production becomes less efficient, and the tissues that depend on it, such as our skin and joints, don’t get repaired the way they used to, which explains, at least in part, why our skin starts to sag and we have more aches and pains as the years tick by ... That’s where the supplements come in. Manufacturers have found a way to apply enzymes to gelatin to create protein chains called collagen hydrolysates. These small collagen chains (peptides) may be absorbed intact by the body to be used directly in the tissues. Predictably, there is a lot of hype and exaggerated claims around these supplements, but there is also a lot of promising, bona fide research pointing to benefits, particularly for more youthful-looking skin and help with joint pain ... A 2017 study in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry showed that collagen hydrolysates can be transferred through the bloodstream directly to the skin, which explains the probable pathway for these effects ... Although the science is building, it is relatively new and there is still a lot to learn, particularly in identifying what types of collagen peptides work with different conditions" - See collagen supplements at Amazon.com.
  • Gelatin supplements: Good for your joints? - Science Daily, 12/20/16 - "enrolled eight health young men in a trial of a gelatin supplement enhanced with vitamin C. The volunteers drank the supplement and had blood taken, and after one hour performed a short (five minute) bout of high-impact exercise (skipping) ... The researchers tested the blood for amino acids that could build up the collagen protein that composes tendons, ligaments, and bones. They also tested blood samples for their effect on Baar's lab-grown ligaments at UC Davis ... The gelatin supplement increased blood levels of amino acids and markers linked to collagen synthesis, and improved the mechanics of the engineered lab-grown ligaments" - See gelatin supplements at Amazon.com.
  • Hydrolysed collagen may boost beauty from within: Rousselot studies - Nutra USA, 5/7/09 - "According to the company, women receiving the collagen supplement experienced a 28 per cent improvement in the skin hydration levels, compared to placebo, with 91 per cent of these women reporting increased skin hydration levels after eight weeks ... Furthermore, the number of micro-relief furrows and deep wrinkles decreased by 26 and 30 per cent, compared with the placebo group" - See collagen products at iHerb.
