Collagen is a large family of homogeneous and multi-type proteins, which are widely distributed in human bones, skin, blood vessels, ligaments, cartilage, and other tissues and organs. So far, at least 14 different types of collagen have been confirmed and confirmed; all types of collagen molecules have a triple helix structure, that is, three identical or different polypeptide chains, according to the right-hand helix rule, are intertwined with each other. Formed like a rigid rope, this triple helix structure gives collagen many properties. Different types of collagen participate in the composition of the extracellular matrix of different tissues in animals and build the structural framework of bone, skin, blood vessels, etc. in the form of fibers.
1. The relationship between hydrolyzed collagen and arthritis:
Collagen accounts for 18% of the bone weight and 90% of the organic matter in the bone. Collagen forms a network structure in the bone, which is responsible for sticking calcium, maintaining the toughness of the bone and increasing the bone density. Collagen is the main component of cartilage and plays an important role in constructing the cartilage tissue framework, supporting joint load-bearing, and protecting and repairing damaged articular cartilage. Inadequate intake of collagen can lead to osteoporosis and joint pain.
2. The relationship between hydrolyzed collagen and osteoporosis:
Osteoporosis is a disease in which bone mass, collagen breakdown, and bone function decrease. Spongy bone is most prone to osteoporosis, which results in insufficient mechanical strength of the bone structure leading to bone fractures. Women are more prone to osteoporosis due to severe pain that greatly reduces the patient's quality of life.
To maintain apatite crystals, thus making the bones brittle. Because the main component contained in collagen is hydroxyproline, which is unique to bone collagen and is a bone Formation of nuclear action sites. Therefore, supplementing collagen can increase the regularity and firmness of the structural grid, so that the calcium salt absorbed by the body can be deposited in the reticular system in an orderly manner, which increases the strength of the bone. Therefore, for patients taking hydrogenated collagen, Collagen decomposition, and bone splitting activities were inhibited to a great extent, which further proved that hydrolyzed collagen has a curative effect on osteoporosis.
