Collagen Issues

Most of us are not even aware that gelatin is a hydrolyzed collagen. Gelatin is obtained by the partial destruction of animal collagen by heat treatment (continuous cooking), and their biological properties are virtually indistinguishable, as the latter is destroyed in the same manner like oligopeptides in the gastrointestinal tract.

The gelatin can be used as a means to strengthen the joints and ligaments. Thus, instead of a course of collagen tablets or capsules, you can take normal gelatin at equivalent doses, and you'll get exactly the same therapeutic effect.

Gelatin is made of cartilage, bone, connective tissue of the animal and is rich in protein, it is used in the food industry as a thickener or food additive. It was sold a period even as a protein for athletes, but for building muscle tissue collagen is of little use because it has defective amino acid structure.

The positive effects of collagen:
  1. Strengthening of the cartilage
  2. Strengthening the ligaments
  3. Strengthening of bones
  4. Improved muscles nutrition (amino acids represents are used in the construction of the muscle tissue, and have relatively high content of arginine (8%) that contributes to the improvement of blood flow in the muscle).
  5. Improved properties of the skin
If you received a serious injury ligaments or joints, you can heal it with a conventional gelatin recommended to be combined with chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. In bodybuilding and powerlifting for strengthening bones and ligaments, collagen; should be taken at a dose of 10 grams per day, divided in 2 doses.
