Collagen is an essential protein that helps to provide structure and strength to joint cartilage and other connective tissue such as skin, ligaments, tendons, bone, and muscles. It is important for wound healing and elasticity of the skin, and is responsible for the strength and toughness of cartilage.

Cartilage acts as a cushioning or shock absorber to the joints and ideally is a smooth, weight bearing surface that allows bones to move freely over each other for ease of movement and mobility. Cartilage can break down or thin due to wear and tear, age, or lack of appropriate supporting nutrients in the diet, leading to pain, inflammation and discomfort.

Due to collagens role in assisting with swollen and tender joints, it is often used to treat pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gouty arthritis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, post-surgical joint pain, post-traumatic pain, fibrositis, back pain, and neck pain.
