Focus on clinical studies
Joint pain is an issue that affects vast numbers of people around the world. Research shows that 93% of those aged between 45 and 59 globally have concerns about joint and muscle pain, with two-thirds saying it has a moderate to severe impact on their health.1 This can cause significant discomfort during exercise and can even limit the ability to carry out everyday activities. As collagen can help the body to repair connective tissue, PB Leiner commissioned FSU to carry out a study exploring whether SOLUGEL® collagen peptides could reduce joint pain among physically active middle-aged adults.

1. What are SOLUGEL® collagen peptides?
Collagen peptides, which are also known as collagen hydrolysate or hydrolyzed collagen, are a highly digestible protein obtained through the enzymatic treatment of collagen rich materials.
Sourced from the highest quality raw materials, the bioactive SOLUGEL® collagen peptides are produced from a strictly controlled process that uses a unique biotechnology which results in consistently premium quality.
2. What is collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and it accounts for over 30% of the body’s protein. As the key building blocks that provide support and structure to our bodies, collagen is present in all connective tissues such as skin, bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels. As the structural framework of the body, collagen plays a crucial role in terms of supporting and connecting everything together.
3. What is the difference between gelatin and collagen peptides?
Gelatin and collagen peptides are both natural products that are extracted from collagen-rich materials. While gelatin is an ingredient that is typically used as a gelling agent, emulsifier, stabilizer or water binding agent for confectionery, dairy, desserts and pharmaceutical applications, collagen peptides are predominately consumed for the nutritional value and health benefits, as well as easy integration in food and beverages.
4. How is SOLUGEL® absorbed by the human body?
Collagen peptides are further hydrolyzed into smaller peptides or even free amino acids along the human digestive tract. They can also easily be absorbed in the intestine. Tests have proven that they reach the blood stream within 15 minutes and are available to exert different functions in target tissues. The presence of peptides reached a maximum level after 1-2 hours and then decreased to one-half of the maximum level 4 hours after the ingestion.
5. Are SOLUGEL® collagen peptides protein?
