Collagen makes up 70% of the body’s cartilage. This specific peptide powder is formulated to regenerate cartilage by stimulating collagen synthesis directly at the articular cartilage.
Joint Collagen Peptides by Cyto-Matrix uses a unique blend of Type I and Type III bovine peptides called Fortigel®.
Experiments with Fortigel® have demonstrated that these collagen peptides decrease inflammation through the induction of a glycine-mediated inhibition of cytokine release and that they regulate the extracellular matrix to reduce catabolism of joint tissue. These peptides help to counteract wear and tear processes on cartilage tissue and aid in the repair of articular cartilage.
Recent evidence has suggested that the integrity of these tissues can be maintained or improved by supplementing with these specific bioactive peptides.
It is important to emphasis that collagen peptides are not identical. Molecular weight distribution, specific amino acid sequences and bioactivity may result in differing clinical outcomes.
Clinical research suggests that these specific peptides successfully target chondrocyte cells to produce collagen synthesis at the joints. Over a dozen controlled studies confirm this.
One placebo-controlled study in young, healthy athletes found improvements in activity-related knee pain and reduced stiffness after just 6 weeks of supplementation.
Another placebo-controlled study in middle-aged individuals with knee and hip pain found significant improvements on pain measures during movement and at rest when taking Joint Collagen Peptides.
These peptides are sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised cows and guaranteed to be free from hormones and antibiotics.
