Why is it important to distinguish between the effects of collagens?
Did you know that there is no universal collagen for everything? That is why we have focused the effects of our products in two directions and offer a product for beauty and youthful appearance as well as for joint and cartilage health. Our bioactive collagen peptides are specifically optimised for their physiological benefits. The peptides are derived from a highly controlled collagen production process determined by the conditions of hydrolysis. As a result, bioactive collagen peptides differ in their physiological functionality. They are optimised to maximise the stimulation of the human cell types involved in collagen biosynthesis.
In layman’s terms, there is raw native collagen, from which a patented manufacturing process produces specific bioactive collagen peptides that, because of their physiological function (e.g. molecular weight), “affect and attract” the cells in the body for which they are “made”. For example, collagen for ‘beauty and youthful appearance’ acts on the fibroblast cells we have in our skin. Collagen for ‘Joints and Cartilages’ acts on the chondrocyte cells found in the joints.
Why supplement with collagen?
Collagen is the main constituent of the human body. Collagen is the main constituent of the human body. Approximately 30% of our total body protein is made up of collagen. Collagen is essential in our bodies for beautiful skin, smooth, wrinkle-free skin, shiny hair, healthy nails, as well as flexible joints, strong bones, healthy muscles, strong ligaments and tendons. becomes much more noticeable. Its production starts to decline from the age of 20. From the age of 30, the breakdown of collagen in our bodies accelerates and the ageing process becomes much more noticeable.
Startes Hydrolysed Collagen – Joints and Cartilage
Due to their very low molecular weight (measured in Daltons (Da)), Startes collagens have a significantly higher efficiency. This is how collagen gets to where it needs to go in the body. Startes Hydrolysed Collagen – Joints and Cartilage has a molecular weight of only 3 000 Da and its effects are confirmed by studies from around the world.
Startes Hydrolysed Collagen – Joints and Cartilage with patented bioactive peptides of FORTIGEL type. Almost 70% of cartilage mass is made up of collagen protein. A lack of collagen in the body results in, for example, reduced joint mobility and flexibility and increased pain with movement. FORTIGEL bioactive collagen peptides provide a highly absorbable form of collagen. Peptides are organic compounds. They are formed by combining several amino acids. They have a very small molecular size. This is why they are so effective for the body compared to the large molecules of ordinary – commonly available collagen. The product contains innovative collagen peptides of FORTIGEL type and Vitamin C, which contribute to the normal formation of collagen for normal bone and cartilage function, nervous system function and protection of cells from oxidative stress.
How to use
Mix the contents of 2,5 of the supplied measuring scoops (10,05g) in a glass of water (2-3dl). You can use any cold beverage instead of water. Allow to dissolve for 2-3 minutes and stir. It can also be added to porridge, yoghurt, smoothies or cereal.
Pack – Startes Hydrolysed Collagen – Joints and Cartilage equals 10,05 g x 20 daily dose. A measuring cup is included. To achieve the first visible results, we recommend taking it once a day at any time of the day for at least 3 months. Suitable for long term use. For severe joint damage or pain when moving, we recommend taking the standard dose. For the maintenance phase and for prevention, the dose can be reduced by half.
A food supplement is not a substitute for a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. Keep out of the reach of children. Do not exceed recommended dosage. Protect from direct sunlight and moisture. Store at a temperature of 25°C or below.
A 2008 study from Penn University (USA) in which 147 professional athletes with an average age of 20 years took FORTIGEL or a placebo for 24 weeks. Athletes who took FORTIGEL had better mobility in their joints and less pain.
A study published in 2011 by McAlindon and colleagues examined the long-term effect of FORTIGEL treatment on hyaline cartilage composition was examined in subjects with early knee osteoarthritis. A total of 30 subjects in one group were randomised to receive 10 000 mg of FORTIGEL daily for 48 weeks. The control group only received a placebo. Three MRI scans of the knee were performed on each subject, one at baseline, one at 24 weeks, and a final scan at 48 weeks. Analysis of the cartilage scans showed a statistically significant increase in proteoglycan density in the medial and lateral tibial regions of the FORTIGEL-treated subjects compared to the placebo group. The results show that oral supplementation with FORTIGEL has a direct effect on human cartilage tissue.
In a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study conducted by Zdzieblik in 2021, physically active young adults with knee pain (at least 3 hours of exercise per week) were given 5g of FORTIGEL collagen peptides or placebo daily for 12 weeks. weeks. The study was completed by 180 active men and women aged 18 to 30 years with exercise-induced knee pain but no diagnosed joint disease. The participants were randomly assigned to either the group that received 5 000 mg of FORTIGEL collagen peptides or the group that received a placebo. Study results show a statistically significant reduction in “pain during activity” following oral administration of FORTIGEL collagen peptides compared to placebo. This is how it was rated by the study participants and the doctor. At the same time, FORTIGEL collagen peptides have been shown to reduce knee pain during activity and may help prevent the clinical manifestations of chronic degenerative joint disease.ns of chronic degenerative joint disease.
