A wide range of studies have established TruMarine™ Collagen’s role in promoting joint health by helping to repair joint matrix degeneration and improving long-term joint comfort and mobility. Numerous studies have linked collagen peptides to improving joint conditions. Damage over time and the degradation of cartilage are linked to the breakdown of cartilage, entirely made of chondrocyte cells. Collagen may help regulate chondrocyte diﬀerentiation and play a key role in the maintenance of established chondrocytes in cartilage. Joint health benefits
