Does collagen taken as a supplement help with arthritis? I'm seeing it in products for joint health.
Collagen hydrolysate (enzymatically hydrolyzed collagen or collagen peptide) may help reduce the pain of osteoarthritis (worn joints) according to some preliminary studies, although the evidence is not conclusive and it is unclear how much it may help improve other symptoms, such as stiffness and swelling. Collage peptides may also help increase muscle strength. For details, including dosage typically used and length of treatment, see the full answer>>
