How marine collagen could help with arthritis and joint pain

As people get older, their fibrous protein levels become less abundant. One of the most well known fibrous proteins is collagen, which is made up of building blocks called amino acids. Lower collagen levels can result in wrinkling, sagging skin and worn-down joints, which could lead to arthritis. If you’d like to know more about the ways marine collagen could help with arthritis and joint pain, you’re in the right place.

The link between marine collagen and arthritis

While there is not enough evidence to say for certain that every arthritis patient would find benefit from marine collagen supplements, there has been a strong link between the two. Taking marine collagen will definitely not be harmful to your joint pain or arthritis. Whether this is a tablet-based supplement or as a powder form that you blend into a drink, the choice is yours.

How does collagen help your joints?

By making up the tissue that allows the ends of your bones to move smoothly against each other, collagen is vital for healthy joints. Once this cartilage begins to deteriorate, you’ll begin to experience symptoms of arthritis or joint pain. By taking a marine supplement, you could help your body regrow cartilage.

Tufts Medical Centre and Harvard Medical School carried out a study with 30 osteoarthritis patients across 48 weeks. While 15 patients were given a placebo, the others were given collagen supplements. After a year, MRI scans demonstrated that patients who had taken collagen showed ‘significant re-growth of damaged cartilage’ (https://www.hollandandbarrett.com/the-health-hub/vitamins-and-supplements/supplements/collagen/collagen-help-joints/).

What else can you do?

Alongside marine supplements, it’s very important that you also try physical therapy and exercises recommended by your physiotherapists like swimming and walking. This will strengthen the muscles around your joints, which will help relieve inflammation and any pain you experience.

Don't forget to consult with your doctor before taking supplements for arthritis or joint pain. To get started, shop marine collagen at Kollo today.
