Why do we love Collagen so much in our Joint Food Powder? Because there has been a lot of research on the benefits of taking Collagen supplements for joint health.
Just some of the research below:
A medical study involving a team of rheumatologists from Tufts Medical Center found that supplementing daily with collagen strengthens knee cartilage. The medical team used MRI scans to do a before/after comparison of patients with knee osteoarthritis. They found that after 24 weeks, the cartilage of those who supplemented daily with FORTIGEL® had regenerated significantly.
Another study by Penn State also confirms Improvement of Mobility with Fortigel®Collagen

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and is essential for the good health of skin, bones, tendons, muscles, cartilage and joints. The collagen used in Ultimate Joint Health is high quality, hydrolysed bovine collagen and has been scientifically proven to stimulate cartilage growth, therefore capable of alleviating and preventing joint discomfort. This type of collagen induces the increased synthesis of aggrecan (an important component in cartilage) and Type ll collagen (which plays a key role in cartilage elasticity). Collagen also gives support to organs such as the liver and kidneys.
Research has shown that collagen may help conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis and although there are many medicines available to help reduce pain for arthritis sufferers, some have very serious side effects and concerns are rising in the medical field about the cardiovascular disease dangers of several prescription medications. So it's a relief to know that the natural substances contained in this product have shown promising results in helping reduce pain and inflammation and repairing joints.
Glucosamine is a naturally occurring chemical found in the body. It is in the fluid around the joints. Glucosamine helps maintain joint health and mobility.
Chondroitin is a naturally occurring molecule in the body and a major component of cartilage. Chondroitin helps keep cartilage healthy by absorbing fluid into the connective tissue. It is known to also block enzymes that break down cartilage and may provide the building blocks for the body to produce new cartilage.
Hyaluronic acid is present in every tissue of the body. It is most concentrated in the synovial fluid which bathes the joints, in the vitreous in the eye, and in the skin. Retention of water is one of the most important biological functions of Hyaluronic Acid, second only to providing nutrients and removing wastes from cells that do not have direct blood supply, such as cartilage cells. Hyaluronic Acid helps to improve joint health, especially cushioning the joints and improving the quality of the synovial fluid.
Boswellia is a herbal ingredient that supports joint health and mobility. It may improve blood circulation to inflamed joints, reducing joint inflammation and discomfort.
