Specific Collagen Peptides Improve Bone Density and Bone Formation, and Reduce Bone Degradation
When taking a collagen supplement, it has been proven that specific collagen peptides work better than generic collagen in laboratory trials
. Our balance product is specially designed for easing menopause symptoms, and during the menopause it’s natural to lose up to 5% of bone mass in the first year alone. For this reason, we use the Bioactive Collagen Peptide® FORTIBONE® c in balance to specifically target bone density. We know how important it is to understand what’s going into your body. As such, we’ve compiled a summary of a study which proves the effectiveness of specific collagen peptides on postmenopausal women, specifically when it comes to bone density, bone formation, and bone degradation.
Specific Collagen Peptides Improve Bone Mineral Density in Postmenopausal Women
In a 2018 study
which took place over 12 months, 131 women were randomly allocated to take either a daily dose of specific collagen peptides or a placebo. Bone mineral density in the femoral neck and spine were the main focus of the study, so these were monitored before and after the 12-month period. However, plasma levels of bone marker amino-terminal propeptide of type I collagen (P1NP), a biochemical indicator of bone turnover, and C-telopeptide of type I collagen (CTX-1), a marker for bone resorption, were also analysed. 102 of the original 131 women completed the full 12-month study. In those who had taken the specific collagen peptides, bone mass density of the spine and femoral neck had increased significantly by the end of the study compared to the control group. They also showed a significant increase in P1NP, where as the control group displayed a significant increase in CTX-1. This meant that those who had taken the specific collagen peptide showed results which indicated increased bone formation and reduced bone degradation in comparison to the control group, as well as an increased bone mineral density.
