Don’t miss out on THE sports & active nutrition event of the year! NutraIngredients-USA’s Sports & Active Nutrition Summit is less than a month away in beautiful San Diego 😎
The Wellnex team will be showcasing Replenwell collagen peptide ingredients for athletic joint support, along with samples, games, and an interactive formulation roundtable. Interested? Click here to learn more about the event!
The star of the show is slated to be our newest product in the Replenwell family, Collapep JB. “JB” alludes to “joint” and “bone,” and was specifically developed to support joint comfort and performance in healthy athletes with an effective dose of 5g/daily. This low dose, paired with high water solubility, heat stability, and pH tolerance makes Collapep JB a turn-key functional addition to trending applications including bars, shots, and edible gels.
Studies show that the bioactive components of Collapep JB act to suppress the activity of alkaline phosphatase, an enzyme which promotes the unwanted calcification of joints, meanwhile significantly increasing production of aggrecan, a lubricant for cartilage, in joint cells. In addition to increased joint comfort for healthy athletes, ingestion of Collapep JB was found to suppress inflammatory markers 3-methylhistidine (biomarker for skeletal muscle protein breakdown), in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical study of healthy athletes. A follow-up human clinical trial is currently in progress to further investigate these findings.
