Can collagen help regenerate damaged joints?

Scientists are investigating whether collagen can help treat osteoarthritis, the most common joint disease worldwide, a degenerative disease that affects 10% of men and 18% of women over 60.

Studies have suggested that, just as with athletes, hydrolysed collagen may help regenerate the damaged joints.

Norwegian company Hofseth BioCare is running its own trial investigating whether various forms of collagen can help people with mild to moderate osteoarthritis.

While the popular perception of collagen has long been linked to its uses in the cosmetic industry, these developments could help rethink the way we perceive this remarkable protein and perhaps find even more uses for it across the healthcare world.
