I know that when I was racing dirt bikes, nutrition was a vital part of my preparation, so it was with more than a passing interest when I was given an opportunity to develope a business that was promoting collagen hydrolysate supplements for fitness and health. So, after a bit of due diligence, I learned that this product could be a great asset to dirt bike riders ALL of the time, and not just as a fix after an injury.
Collagen hydrolysate is a vital part of our very existence
It is well documented that collagen is essential for the developement of strong bones, teeth, skin and hair, but from a sportsman’s point of view, it helps with recovery from injury, which we all suffer from now and then. It also speeds up the repair of connective tissue and ligaments.
So often, riders from all disciplines and skill levels come a cropper, and since most have jobs and commitments, getting back to work as quickly as possible is of paramount importance. Apart from broken bones, collagen hydrolysate will be of great benefit with a speedy repair.
Collagen hydrolysate is also recognized as a valuable agent in the treatment of arthritis.

Used in anti-aging creams to combat wrinkles, is now being used to restore health to diseased and painful joints.
A study at the University of Munich and Stamford University in the US on 2,000 men and women with osteoarthritis of the hip and knee found it reduced pain and increased mobility in more than 75 per cent of cases.
Patients who took supplements of collagen hydrolysate daily for three months were able to reduce pain-relieving medication significantly. Few side effects were reported.
The findings could offer relief for more than eight million people in the UK suffering from painful joints and reduced mobility caused by arthritis. Many rely on anti-inflammatory medications but these can damage the gut lining, causing ulceration.
Used by British Olympic athletes to speed their recovery from sports injuries, collagen supplements help to restore joints to health. Collagen is the most common protein in the body. “We need it for healthy joints, physical resilience and the ability to recover from injuries,” explains Professor Greg Whyte, senior physiologist at Liverpool University and advisor to the British Olympic Team. “Yet we lose 1.5 per cent of our collagen every year after 25. By 40, collagen has reduced by 30 per cent.”
