Hydrolyzed collagen and bone metabolism
Another interesting study was published in the scientific Journal Critical reviews in Food Science and Nutrition.
The study is about hydrolyzed collagen supplementation and osteoporosis prevention.
Osteoporosis is a chronic and asymptomatic disease. It is characterized by low bone mass and skeletal micro architectural deterioration.
It increases the risk of fracture, and associated comorbidities most prevalent in the elderly. Due to an increasingly aging population osteoporosis has become a major health issue. Requiring innovative disease management. Proteins are important for bone health by providing building blocks and by exerting specific regulatory function.
This is why adequate protein intake plays a considerable role in both bone development and maintenance. An increase in the overall metabolism of collagen can lead to severe dysfunctions and a more fragile bone matrix. Orally administered collagen can be digested in the gut, cross the intestinal barrier, enter the circulation. Then become available for metabolic processes in the target tissues.
-enriched diet provides benefits for the skeleton. Collagen
-derived products such as gelatin or hydrolyzed collagen (HC) are well acknowledged for their safety from a nutritional point of view.
