The Importance of Collagen

Collagen participates in a chain of natural processes occurring in the human body.

More specifically:
• It builds and reconstructs the intercellular matrix of bones. In particular, it activates the chondrocytes which control the pace at which cartilage is regenerated.
• It improves bone strength, by increasing bone density hence; it can prove useful in the therapy of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.
• It strengthens the capillary walls and improves the cardiovascular functions and overall blood circulation.

• A potable form of collagen.
• It has become widely known in recent years and quite popular among consumers thanks to the fact that it is easily consumed, but also because it is less harmful to the digestive system. It is considered to be extremely absorbable by the human body (up to 90%) and that is why it is thought of as more effective than the pill while it is suitable for a range of different conditions such as cartilage injuries, arthritis and osteoarthritis.

• Hydrolyzed collagen, thanks to its low molecular weight is easily digested and therefore more absorbable by the human body and more specifically by the wall of the gastrointestinal tract into the bloodstream.
• It is present in a high concentration within the joint cartilage but also activates collagen production by the chondrocytes resulting in the increasing number of fibroblasts, hence, making it ideal for the treatment of joint cartilage injuries and conditions. Individuals who experience joint pains (people of old age, individuals who sit for long hours, those who lift weights on a daily basis and those who put a strain on their joints such as athletes) can benefit from collagen.

Arthritis is the most commonly occurring mobility disease and the most frequent cause of movement disability while it is a huge financial burden for health services worldwide.  Musculoskeletal and joint conditions are the second most frequent and morbid conditions following cardiovascular diseases and frequently patients suffering from such conditions have to visit A&E.  Although these conditions are not often life-threatening, they
affect the patient’s quality of life due to the immobility they cause while they are a great burden on the national economy due to loss of earnings.
