Hydrolyzed Collagen improves joint pain

     Many state of the art human clinical trials show that hydrolyzed collagen improves joint health while reducing pain and stiffness and this is yet another recently published human clinical trial representing the best level of scientific evidence used by medical doctors for scientific validation of safety and benefit.

Researchers from Japan and India recruited 30 people with arthritis of the knee who suffered with pain. This is a double-blinded, placebo-controlled clinical trial. Bovine Collagen over a thirteen-week period improved joint pain and stiffness and may have supported actual healing of the joint. As a modest gain in healing was assessed joint pain was decreased. This was evident on all three scores, the doctors WOMAC Score, the patients VAS score and the Quality of Life Score. There was no improvement in the health of the joint in patients on placebo, nor in their quality of life. The study is published in the June 24th, 2014 issue of the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture.
