Collagen is an essential protein that provides cohesion, firmness and flexibility to joints, muscles and tendons in the human body. With age, its production decreases, leading to joint problems and skin aging. After exercise, the breakdown of collagen in joints and tendons increases, increasing the risk of injury. Collagen supplementation is beneficial for osteoarthritis, tendonitis, muscle pain and cartilage problems.

All about collagen

What is collagen and how is it useful in sports?

  • Collagen is naturally available in the human body: it is the essential constituent of the dermis. The most abundant protein in the body, collagen provides joints, muscles and tendons with their cohesion, firmness and flexibility. With age and wear, collagen is more difficult to renew and its level decreases, hence the appearance of joint problems and skin aging. In addition, after each muscular effort, the degradation of collagen found in joints and tendons intensifies. It is then important to rebalance collagen losses in order to avoid the risk of injury. Collagen supplementation is ideal for osteoarthritis, tendonitis, muscle pain and cartilage problems.

What are the different Nutrimuscle collagens?

Collagen is a natural protein found in the human body, responsible for the structure and function of tissues such as skin, bones and cartilage. There are different types of collagen, each with specific functions in the body. Type 1, type 2 and marine collagens are the most common.

  • Type 1 collagen is the most abundant in the human body and is found in skin, bones, tendons and ligaments. It contributes to the resistance and elasticity of these tissues. Type 1 collagen supplements are often used to improve the appearance of skin, reduce wrinkles, and strengthen bones and joints.
  • Type 2 collagen, on the other hand, is mainly present in cartilage, which is a tissue that cushions shocks between bones. Type 2 collagen may help reduce pain and inflammation in the joints in people with osteoarthritis. It may also help improve immune system health.
  • Marine collagen is extracted from fish skin and scales and is a rich source of type 1 collagen. It is often used in dietary supplements to support healthy skin, hair and nails. It can also help reduce wrinkles and improve skin elasticity.

How to choose the right collagen?

  • Type 1 collagen is found at 80% in the skin. It gives it firmness and flexibility. It is the most universal collagen, as it is also present in bones and tendons. The repair speed of tendon collagen is half that of muscle collagen. Its intake thus helps rebalance collagen losses after training.
  • Type 2 collagen is found very strongly localized in bones and cartilage. It is therefore very interesting for people suffering from joint problems linked to cartilage in particular. Its contribution helps support the joints by combating the risk of injury.
  • Nutrimusle Peptan 1 Marine Collagen is ideal for improving your joint recovery to take care of your skin, and improves the health of your hair and nails. Its benefits on the skin are due to its action on hyaluronic acid synthesis, which helps the dermis to stay young, fighting against wrinkles and dryness.
