Collagen Peptides May Help Relieve Joint Discomfort

Collagen is the main structural protein that forms the connective tissue throughout the body. Collagen peptides are made of the same amino acids as collagen but are more easily absorbed by the body in supplement form. A new study suggests that supplementation with collagen peptides may help relieve joint discomfort.

Participants in the study were between the ages of 45 and 56 and spent at least 3 hours per week hiking or cycling. They were given 10 grams of collagen peptides or a placebo daily for 6 months. The Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score was used to evaluate knee pain and functionality at baseline and at the end of the study period.

Participants in the collagen peptide group saw a 36% improvement in their Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome scores, compared to a decrease in scores in the placebo group. Approximately one-third of participants in the collagen peptide group also saw improvements in their ability to carry out everyday tasks.

The study was conducted by researchers from Florida State University. Findings from the study were presented at the Vitafoods Europe 2021 on October 6, 2021.
