Case Studies

1. A Collagen Supplement Improves Skin Hydration, Elasticity, Roughness, and Density: Results of a Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Blind Study

 

SUMMARY 

Conducted in Germany at the university of Münster and the Institute for Biometrics and Clinical Research.

 

The trial was conducted on 72 healthy women aged 35 years or older. A skin assessment was carried out and based on skin hydration, elasticity, skin roughness and skin density. The trial took place over a 4 week period. The results showed significantly improved skin hydration, elasticity, roughness and density after twelve weeks of intake. Skin hydration was significantly increased, by 28.0% in the test group. These positive effects were substantially retained during the follow-up. After four weeks without further taking Collagen it was noted that the, skin hydration was still significantly increased in comparison to the initial state.

2.  Role of collagen hydrolysate in bone and joint disease

 

SUMMARY

Conducted in October 2000 by R.W.Moskawitz, at the Case Western Reserve University, Division of Rheumatic Diseases, University Hospitals of Cleveland, OH, USA.

 

Clinical studies advocate that the ingestion of 10 g Hyrdolysed Collagen daily reduces pain in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee or hip. 

In a controlled trial performed in clinics in the United States, United Kingdom, and Germany, it was noted that there was a preferential uptake by cartilage. Suggesting that Hydrolysed Collagen may have a salutary effect on cartilage metabolism. 

Given the important role for collagen in bone structure, the effect of Hydrolysed Collagen on bone metabolism in osteoporotic persons was also evaluated. 

In conclusion, Hydrolysed Collagen is of interest in the treatment of Osteoarthritis and Osteoporosis.

SUMMARY 

Conducted by Hongdong Song in July 2017 from the University of Shanghai of Science and Technology & Bo Li from the China Agricultural University

 

This study confirmed that by taking Hydrolysed Collagen that there was an antioxidant effect. There were reported enhancements in the wound healing abilities in the skin.
