The role of protein in the body
Collagen is protein, and we all know that protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of our healthy joints; but did you know that not all proteins are equal? Our bodies use different sizes and shapes of proteins, as well as different amino acids, for different purposes.
About proteins and peptides
Collagen is one of the most important types of protein produced by the body. Within our joints, collagen forms part of the cartilage used to cushion our bones which provides impact resistance and supports joint functionality. Our body makes this joint collagen by sequentially combining triplets of amino acids; glycine with proline, hydroxyproline and other amino acids into a large ‘supercoiled’ helix structure that’s especially long lasting, but slow to repair.
-JOINT CARE supplies all of the right amino acids as ‘cut to size’ peptides ready to support healthy joint function and repair.
-Beef collagen is hydrolysed using specific enzymes that breakdown the strong triple helix, denature it into chains and then into precise low molecular weight peptides (3,000 kDa) that have been optimised for enhancing cartilage growth and repair.
Clinically tested peptides
Clinical studies show that consuming JOINT CARE
-Promotes and enhances cartilage repair
-Can help to reduce joint pain associated with osteoarthritis
JOINT CARE superfood has been specially designed for the aging population who want to support the function and wellbeing of their joints.
