Collagen and Medical Treatment

Collagen and Medical Treatment

Scientists have been experimenting with administering of Collagen to treat arthritis, or joint pain, with mixed results. Supplementing the body with oral collagen doesn't work to reverse arthritis, but surgically inserting collagen into the joints shows promise.

Collagen is successfully used to treat wounds, promote healing and to prevent infection for more than 2000 years.

Collagen supplements which claim to improve skin, heart and bone health, while boosting muscle mass, should be treated with scepticism until further research and studies are conducted on their benefits.
