Peptide de collagène et sport

Collagen peptide and sport

Collagen is a protein that accounts for around 30-35% of all proteins in the human body. It is the main component of connective tissue (tendons, ligaments, skin, muscles). There are different types of collagen, which play roles in different parts of the body and have different structures and functions. 

- Type I collagen, found in skin, tendons and bone tissue 

- Type II collagen, present in cartilage 

- Type III collagen, present in the walls of blood vessels and muscle tissue. 

As we age, collagen production gradually declines. This can have a number of effects, including joint pain and bone fragility.

Consume collagen when you exercise. 

Collagen is present in joints and gives cartilage the ability to absorb shocks. 

During intense physical activity, joints are subjected to numerous shocks. If these impacts are repeated, they can cause pain. 

Collagen plays a role in tissue regeneration, or repair of cartilage damaged by exercise. 

Collagen is poorly absorbed by the body, so very little can be obtained from the diet. Products such as nutritional supplements and sports foods are therefore available. Collagen exists in the form of collagen peptides, which facilitate absorption and assimilation by the body.
