A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition in 2015, shown that intake of collagen peptides in the elderly with resistance training helps to improve muscle strength over a period of 12 weeks. This study was carried out in sarcopenia (muscle loss with aging) men above age of 65 years.

Bioactive Collagen Peptides
Collagen is the main building block for healthy blood vessels, flesh, cartilage, bones, tendons and connective tissues. After we reach the age of 25, the rate of collagen production starts to fall. When this happens, you experience cartilage degeneration, which may lead to joint deformities and osteoarthritis.
Bioactive collagen peptides – type of collagen of short-chain protein peptides with 18 proteinogenic amino acids. These amino acids aid in nourishing body tissues, cartilages, bones, tendons, ligaments, hair, nails and skin.
Bioactive collagen peptides is obtained by enzymatic hydrolysis from clean and safe bovine sources, commonly known as hydrolyzed gelatine. Bioactive Collagen Peptides is recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) to improve bones and joints health.
The extremely low molecular weights (approximately 3000 Daltons) of Bioactive Collagen Peptides give excellent solubility. It is easily digested and absorbed into your body to reach targeted joint and bone area effectively to aid in regeneration of cartilage and collagen-containing tissues. This is to support and maintain healthy joint functions and to improve joint flexibility.
