Joint collagen products are seen more and more in the market, springing up like mushrooms after the rain. Collagen, type 2 collagen, collagen hydrolysate, collagen peptides, hydrolysed collagen, undenatured type 2 collagen are some of the common names you might have heard to describe joint collagen.
But do you know what are the differences? How are they affecting your joints? How are they helping your body? What are the ingredients? How much active collagen are there in the product you are consuming? Or are you just consuming the additives and sugar?
Type 1 collagen and Type 2 collagen
Do you know the differences? Type 1 collagen is mostly found in our skin, muscles. Fish collagen is mostly categorized under Type 1 collagen. Type 2 collagen is widely found at our cartilage. Chicken and bovine source of collagen falls under this category. However, it was found the bovine skin cells has the most similar cells to the human body. Hence, absorption at joint areas is very much better.
Joint Pain and Stiffness
How do you know the product is well absorbed? Previously we mentioned that bovine skin has the most similar cells to the human body, hence better absorption. Absorption also can be measured by the molecular size of the ingredient source. For example, the two ingredients that are found in joint supplement products in the market, Bioactive collagen peptides and Undenatured collagen type-2 (UC-2). Bioactive collagen peptides (BCP) has a molecular size of 2-9kDa whereas UC-2 with 300kDa. We can say that BCP has very much better absorption than UC-2 at our joints.
Better absorption means better effect. After taking in the products, you will feel improvement faster.
Both BCP and UC-2 are found to relieve joint pain in subjects over period of 12 weeks.
Based on our real customer testimonials, there are customers that find improvement within 3-10 days after taking Bioactive collagen peptides.
