Collagen Safety:
In a review on the role of collagen hydrolysate by Professor Roland Moskowitz, M.D. in bone and joint disease, he commented on the excellent safety profile of collagen hydrolysates. He also noted that partially hydrolyzed collagen has been used as a food since at least early medieval times. Various collagen hydrolysate products have been affirmed as GRAS (generally regarded as safe) by the FDA. He also notes that Collagen hydrolysate is of interest as a therapeutic agent of potential utility in the treatment of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Its high level of safety makes it attractive as an agent for long-term use in these chronic disorders.
