Bioactive Collagen (500 g) is a composition of different highly-purified collagen peptides derived from a specific type of hydrolysis from bovine skin. Collagen peptides are rapidly absorbed from the gastro-intestinal tract. Peptides are broken down into amino acids or di-peptides but are also absorbed to some extent in molecular intact form.

Collagen peptides have a positive impact on the biosynthesis of extracellular matrix (ECM) in cartilage tissue, as demonstrated by a statistically significantly increase of two major components, collagen type II and proteoglycan (aggrecan) after ingestion.

Several preclinical and clinical studies have demonstrated the efficacy of Bioactive Collagen as potential therapeutic agent and nutritional supplement for the management of osteoarthritis (OA) and support of the maintenance of joint health in humans.

Much clinical data exists, that refers to the beneficial effect of Bioactive Collagen in patients affected by degenerative joint disease. Bioactive Collagen addresses the cause of the disease by stimulating joint cartilage metabolism. Supplementation of Bioactive Collagen can contribute to the maintenance of joint health and could help to preserve mobility and quality of life.

Clinically reported to support joint function and is well researched. Arthred is hydrolyzed (predigested for better absorption) powdered collagen (bovine source) to support the production of healthy joint tissue (connective tissue). Connective tissue is present in varying degrees in every cell of the body. 

Arthred® is a patented, low molecular weight, pharmaceutical grade hydrolyzed collagen product. It is a free flowing predigested powder that is easily absorbed. Obtained from a bovine source, it is made through a proprietary process that breaks down the collagen into very small pieces: 3 kilodaltons (kDa) for Arthred® vs. 70 kDa for regular gelatine. Clinically significant doses of regular gelatine typically cause severe gastrointestinal reactions including diarrhoea, precluding its usefulness for cartilage support. Arthred®, by contrast, is extremely digestible and is well tolerated.

Arthred® hydrolyzed collagen is a unique protein, containing high amounts of certain amino acids, including glycine, proline, hydroxyproline and arginine. These amino acids have been linked to optimal body composition, healthy bone and connective tissue, healthy skin appearance, tissue anabolism, normal metabolism and growth hormone secretion.
