What the Body Needs

In virtually every country of the world, the population is aging, while health and wellness expectations are rising. This and recent scientific progress have created immense opportunities for manufacturers of food and dietary concepts. Our collagen-based solutions, are the natural choice for manufacturers looking to boost the nutritional profile of their products, and to hold out proven health benefits that can improve the quality of life of aging consumers.

The Body’s Own Building Blocks for Cartilage

The efficacy of collagen peptides in supporting joint health is supported by an extensive body of scientific studies. Safe and of natural origin, collagen peptides are the body’s own building blocks for cartilage, and an ideal ingredient to target not only on older consumers but also those who frequently engage in repetitive sports such as running or cycling. Peptan collagen peptides are increasingly used as the key active ingredient in successful joint health product formulations.

Improved Joint Function

The efficacy of Peptan collagen peptides for improving joint function and reducing discomfort is backed by scientific studies including in vitro, in vivo and clinical trials. Peptan IIm, our hydrolyzed collagen type II matrix, is also a powerful promoter of healthy joints.

Stronger Bones

Bones are living tissues that undergo constant remodeling, a process which ensures healthy bone mass density and helps us avoid fractures throughout our lives. Collagen provides the organic framework in bones on which minerals are deposited and also contribute to bone flexibility and strength. When taken as a supplement, collagen peptides can support healthy and strong bones, as shown in multiple in vitro, in vivo and clinical trials.

A recent published study also demonstrated Peptan’s efficacy in supporting bone health by simultaneously targeting bone formation and bone resorption. As calcium and vitamin D, proteins are important nutrients to support healthy bones. A pure protein, collagen is essential for improving bone health and it can also be easily combined with other ingredients such as calcium and/or vitamin D to offer optimal bone health benefits.
