The most important task of cartilage is to reduce the friction of movement within joints. Cartilage covers the joint bones. Collagen is a naturally produced protein found in cartilage, among other body parts. There are many types of collagen. PharmaHorse Collagen+ is a balanced and high-dosage mix of collagen peptides, undenatured collagen type II and hyaluronic acid. These active substances play an important role in cartilage.
- Collagen peptides – contain a spectrum of amino acids that correspond with the amino acids of cartilage.
- Collagen type II – is the most valuable and common type of collagen in articular cartilage.
- Hyaluronic acid – is an important component of synovial fluid. Synovial fluid supplies nutrients to cartilage, plays a role in lubrication of joints and has a shock-absorbing effect.
