This study1 has demonstrated that the combination of resistance exercise and collagen peptide supplementation resulted in a more pronounced improvement of body composition, as indicated by a significant increase in muscle mass and decrease in fat mass compared with placebo. In addition, muscular strength was significantly improved after collagen peptide intake compared with the training programme plus placebo.
The mixture of amino acids, unique to collagen peptide powder, has been shown to be superior compared with whey protein in maintaining nitrogen balance and body weight during a low-protein diet. In addition, collagen contains relatively high amounts of arginine and glycine, both known to be important substrates for the synthesis of creatine in the human body.
Creatine has a role in the regulation of our body's energy production and acts indirectly to help supply us with ATP (the body’s fuel currency). Studies show that creatine can increase muscle mass, strength and exercise performance.
