Today, about 25% of people suffer from joint problems. This number is increasing constantly. The leading reason is wear and tear of the joint cartilage due to mechanical stress and age. One of the primary elements of joint cartilage is the protein collagen – it makes up some 70% of cartilage mass. By ingesting a source of collagen regularly, enables signals to be sent to cartilage cells to produce more collagen, thus helping to relieve joint pain and helping joints to become smooth and mobile.

Joint Care is a bioactive (readily available) collagen peptide that is able to stimulate the growth of new joint cartilage. It is possible to alleviate the pain from the wear and tear effects brought about by the activities of life, sport, work and the natural aging process by taking as little as 5 grams per day. Joint Care helps people with joint problems to regain mobility and provide an enhanced quality of life.

Dosage:

  • 5 grams per day – more if required – in water or liquid of your choice.

  • Will dissolve in hot or cold liquid

  • Keep some in your cupboard and add to shakes and smoothies to provide a wide range of health benefits.

BONE & JOINT HEALTH

 

Gelatin is fantastic for muscle, bone and joint health. It has huge anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. Gelatin is derived from heating / breaking down of collagen.Human knee joint.

Collagen is the protein found in connective tissue of vertebrate animals, and is abundant in bone, marrow, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments. All essential for optimal bone and joint health.

Gelatin contains 18 key amino acids, some of which are known to reduce inflammation helping conditions such as arthritis and osteoarthritis symptoms.

Gelatin has been reported to contribute to the development/growth of cartilage which strengthens joints and bones, and increases mobility and range of movement.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body providing the foundation of our musculoskeletal system. This is crucial for mobility.

The amino acid proline, found in gelatin, can contribute to the maintenance of healthy joints, tendons and ligaments. It is a critical component of cartilage and works in conjunction with Vitamin C in keeping skin and joints healthy.

 

 

ADDITIONAL GELATIN BENEFITS

Active senior couple in the park

  • Provides us with a very rich source of calcium, magnesium and potassium, all of which are vital for healthy bone growth and development
  • Provides us with a rich source of collagen. The breakdown of collagen in bone broth is what produces gelatin
  • Collagen is important to help strengthen all connective tissue, this includes our skin, hair and nails.
  • Rich source of glucosaminoglycans, a type of glucosamine that forms a vital part of our joint tissue. It will help strengthen joints, prevent and assist symptoms of arthritis
  • Another big thing that glycine does is it helps us sleep. That is why having a tablespoon of gelatin in warm milk before bed can help send us into a restful slumber! 
  • Gelatin rich soups and broths are a key component of the GAPS diet (gut and psychology syndrome) which has been designed to heal the gut and promote healthy digestion.
  • Helps with wound healing as it contains glycine. Glycine helps to repair damaged tissues, without it our wounds would never heal. Glycine is also anti-inflammatory.

Q – Grass fed / grain fed / organic

Australian Beef:

The question of grass fed / grain fed gelatin and its source is something we are regularly asked. The answer in all its complexities is actually reasonably simple.

The food grade gelatin – the gelatin used to assist digestive health, best for cooking with – is derived from Australian cattle. Whilst cattle are predominantly grass fed and raised for supply of meat to Australians and to export to the world, no guarantee can be made that cattle are “100% grass fed”. High standards are applied and Australia has a reputation for compliance to strict regulations and providing the highest quality product. All stock are vet checked and certified, suitable for human consumption.

It is important to know that the collagen structure is not dependent on what the feed is. IE – collagen is not affected by the type of feed (grass or grain); the collagen structure is determined by the animal DNA.

This is different to the meat that is used from the cow, where the type of feed is important as the protein and fatty acid structure is affected by the type of diet – IE grains vs grass.

We hope this clears up any confusion and welcome any questions – simply contact us.

German beef:

It is our understanding that the German cattle also experience similar conditions with feed and environment. While it is impossible to guarantee all cattle are grass fed, we can confirm that all cattle are healthy, vet checked and certified for human consumption.

It is important to know that the collagen structure is not dependent on what the feed is. IE – collagen is not affected by the type of feed (grass or grain); the collagen structure is determined by the animal DNA.

This is different to the meat that is used from the cow, where the type of feed is important as the protein and fatty acid structure is affected by the type of diet – IE grains vs grass.

We hope this clears up any confusion and welcome any questions – simply contact us.

Organic:

While we would love to say that our gelatin is certified organic we really cannot, as this is an almost impossible task. We would need to know exactly where each individual cow was sourced and that each farm had been certified organic. Additionally, a purpose built processing plant would need to be built to verify that the products are certified organic, and guarantee no cross contamination.

Hypothetically, if you could produce an organic gelatin, the cost of the product would be immense and the retail market would not be willing to pay the cost. It would just be too expensive.

However, we do have quality products that have been through checks and met high standards to ensure that we are able to supply the very best product possible.

Q – What is the difference between the two collagen products

 

MUSCLE REPAIR – Grow & repair muscle mass is for muscle repair and muscle growth.

JOINT CARE – Strengthen joint cartilage & tissue is for the reduction of muscle and joint inflammation and pain.

While the ingredients remains the same for all products – Beef (Bovine) the difference is in the processing.  Different enzymes are used in processing which utilize different aspects of the collagen, therefore giving us different products.

The difference between the collagens was not the source but a combination of the final average molecular weight and the particular type of enzyme used.  The difference in the enzymes is where the collagen molecule was sliced, for example within a particular amino acid sequence it would slice between two particular amino acids leaving a specific length of collagen as well as two specific amino acids at the ends of the molecule.  The important thing found too was the mode of action, it is not the collagen being ingested that goes into the joints, it is the collagen ingested being utilised in the body to send signals to the cartilage cells to produce more collagen.

Q – What is the type of collagen used.

Gelatin and collagen hydrolysates are made from Type I and Type III collagen (which is found in the skin, tendons, bones, organs, vascular ligature and reticular fibres).  Type II collagen is found exclusively in the cartilage.  Gelatin and collagen hydrolysates are derivatives of collagen from bovine hides.  Hides are heated to produce gelatin.  Hydrolysed collagen is basically the molecular structure of gelatin broken down into a single chain amino acid rather than its original triple helical amino acid structure.  That is gelling gelatin broken down to non-gelling hydrolysed collagen.  The difference between gelatin and collagen peptides (hydrolysed collagen) is the molecular size and weight, gelatin is approximately 180K Daltons in size whereas collagen hydrolysates range from 2-10K Daltons.  The smaller molecular structure makes it much more readily absorbed by the body.  The type of collagen extracted (Type I, Type II, Type III) does not necessarily stimulate the particular body parts where it has come from, it is a much more complex system than Type I stimulates Type I.  Type I and Type III collagen actually have a stimulatory effect on the Type II cartilage collagen as well as stimulating all other areas of the body that contain collagen.  It is not where it has come from in the body, it is the particular amino acid sequences and structure of the protein that stimulate the collagen production.

Simply explained  – All 3 products are made from type I and type III collagen which is found in skin, tendons, etc. Ingesting type I & III collagen stimulates the production of type II collagen in the body. Type II collagen is the collagen found in cartilage.  This then promotes the growth of new cartilage.

It is important to note it is not the collagen being ingested that goes into the joints, it is the collagen that is ingested being utilised in the body to send signals to the cartilage cells to produce more collagen.

Q – Are there any preservatives / sulphates

To make gelatin fit for human consumption, it is required by law to be cleaned. Early in the production process before it is gelatin the raw materials are treated with a sulphuric acid and a lime wash.

The residual sulphites (the breakdown of sulphuric acid) are a result of chemical reactions occurring during the alkaline/acid washing and extraction by water and heat.

This is typical of all gelatin manufacturers worldwide.

There are no added preservatives to our products, however, it is possible there may be residual sulphites present due to the wash process.
