Collagen Peptide Supplement May Notably Reduce Cellulite

Cellulite affects around 85% of adult women and is characterized by a dimpled, lumpy appearance on the thighs and buttocks. It is caused by fat deposits building up under the skin. A recent study suggests that taking a collagen peptide supplement may improve the appearance of cellulite.

Participants in the study included 105 women between the ages of 24 and 50 who were given either 2.5 grams of collagen peptides or a placebo daily for six months. The researchers noted statistically significant cellulite score reduction at the three-month point. At the conclusion of the study, they recorded an approximate 9% mean reduction in cellulite in women with a normal body mass index. In those participants with a BMI that was higher than 25, they noted a 4% reduction in cellulite.

The researchers also noted an average 8% reduction in skin waviness on thighs as measured by skin surface profile measurement in the collagen peptide group at the six month point. When they focused specifically on people with normal BMI, that reduction was amplified to 11.1%.

Researchers from the Collagen Research Institute in Germany, the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil, and the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel in Germany conducted the study. It was published in the December 2015 issue of the Journal of Medicinal Food.

Previous studies suggest that collagen peptides may help with joint and bone health, particularly as we get older. Because collagen peptides dissolve in water, it’s best to take them in the form of a drink supplement.
