Bioactive Collagen Peptides for Healthy Joints and Active Lifestyles

Joint Health Remains a Top Concern

Besides the elderly, more young Singaporeans are experiencing joint pain as well. In 2007, the Ministry of Health reported that 23.7 percent of Singaporeans between 18 to 50 suffer from chronic joint pains. This is a three-fold increment from the 7.4 percent reported in 2001.

Injury and everyday wear-and-tear can damage cartilage that cushions joints, resulting in reduced functionality and limited ability to work, engage in daily activities and enjoy life.

New research shows that joint health is a priority among adults of all ages, not just seniors. Joint health has become mainstream as more consumers incorporate exercise into their overall health and wellness plans.

Research reveals many Singaporeans are living with long-term pain 

“Almost half of Singaporeans surveyed who are experiencing pain have lived with it for over six months.”

  • 92 percent of Singaporeans agree that pain interferes with aspects of daily life and causes a negative impact on the quality of life
  • 33 percent of Singaporeans will only start treating pain after a few weeks
  • 18 percent of millennials aged 25-35 years old will treat pain immediately or almost immediately, while only 6 percent of baby boomers aged 56 years and above will do the same

The Collagen Solution

There are 28 different types of collagen in the human body. Collagen type II is the major component in joint cartilage formation. Sourced from pure chicken sternum, type II collagen contains natural hyaluronic acid, chondroitin and glucosamine for lasting joint health. Research shows type II collagen supplementation can stimulate the growth of new collagen to repair cartilage damage, soothe discomfort and help keep joints functioning smoothly.

Not all Collagens are Equal

Type II collagen is available in several ingredient forms, but the bioavailability and bioactivity can vary greatly.

1. Undernatured Collagen

This insoluble high molecular weight collagen is too large to be absorbed into the body. It also contains little collagen type II (~25%) and none of the naturally occurring glucosamine and mucopolysaccharides (chondroitin and hyaluronic acid) essential for joint health and function.

2. Hydrolyzed Collagen

Hydrolyzation breaks the triple helix structure into single strands containing twice the type II collagen proteins (50-70% vs 25%) of undenatured collagen while preserving glucosamine and mucopolysaccharides to enhance bioavailability and bioactivity. Hydrolyzed collagen is 100% water soluble.

3. Collagen Peptides

Single helix strands of type II collagen are further hydrolyzed into smaller peptides of proteins and amino acids that are the most easily absorbed into the body and the most bioactive.

4. Enhancing Joint Health

Taken orally, collagen type II peptides bind to receptors on chondrocytes, specialized cells in the articulate cartilage that help maintain cartilage and the extracellular matrix. The peptides stimulate the production of new collagen.
