Collagen May Help Relieve Joint Pain

Using Collagen for joint health and potential pain relief all comes down to the actual collagen found in your cartilage.

Cartilage is the rubber-like tissue that protects your joints and allows everything to operate “smoothly” (no pun intended). As you age, the collagen in your body decreases. This is what leads to wrinkly skin and, yes you guessed it, joint pain. Without the collagen in the cartilage to protect your joints, your body starts to lack the support it needs in those areas which can lead to inflammation and pain.

Not only can collagen potentially reduce joint pain in those suffering from age related joint pain, but as well as younger athletic individuals that have joint pain related to activities. A study performed in 2008 took 73 athletes and gave them collagen to take every day for 24 weeks. The study found that those athletes that took collagen every day experienced a significant decrease in joint pain while walking (and sitting) compared to a group that did not take collagen.

Another study took regular adults and gave them only two grams of chicken collagen for 70 days. Once again, the adults who took collagen experienced less joint pain and were better able to engage in physical activity than those who did not take collagen.
