Collagen Plus This Crush It

From eNewsletter 4/10/2024

DID YOU KNOW that collagen peptide supplementation in conjunction with exercise has been shown to improve structural and functional adaptations of both muscles and connective tissue?

According to a study from Frontiers in Nutrition, 12 weeks of 15 grams of collagen peptide supplementation combined with exercise reduced acute markers of exercise-induced muscle damage (LDH, creatine kinase, and myoglobin) and improved post-exercise regenerative capacity.

Thus, collagen had a positive effect on the early phase of muscular recovery by either improving the structural integrity of the muscle and extracellular matrix during the training period or by accelerating membrane and cytoskeletal protein repair.
