FUTURELIFE® REPAIR FOOD™ & CARTILAGE DEGENERATION
Author: Sonal Ratan RD (SA)
Whether you’re an elite athlete, in your 80’s or suffered an injury, you may be at risk of cartilage damage. Cartilage has minimal ability to repair itself therefore it is important to explore preventative measures for degeneration. Collagen has emerged as promising option for the protection of cartilage and may be the perfect solution for you.
Collagen is a key component in cartilage. It not only provides cartilage with its strength but also acts as the framework for the other components of cartilage. Collagen’s amino acid composition provides elevated levels of glycine and proline. These amino acids are essential for the stability and regeneration of cartilage.
Studies suggest that oral supplementation of collagen hydrolysate may protect cartilage and thus prevent the degeneration of cartilage. The proposed mechanism of this is that collagen hydrolysate accumulates in cartilage tissue and stimulates production of type II collagen (the major protein in articular cartilage) and proteoglycans in the extracellular matrix of cartilage.
So, now that you know the benefits of collagen for cartilage, let’s take a look at why FUTURELIFE® REPAIR FOOD™ should be your number one collagen supplement choice:
1. FUTURELIFE® REPAIR FOOD™ contains Hydrolyzed Collagen sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine hides thus ensuring a natural, high quality, and sustainable collagen source. By breaking down proteins enzymatically into smaller peptides, the collagen source is easily digested and absorbed.
