We find out more about ARTRON EXTREME® collagen supplement, from the award winning liquid collagen experts in the market

If you’re anything like us, you might have heard that collagen supplements are said to be good for runners, but aren’t quite sure why – or even what it is!

Luckily, we’ve got the answers. We talk to GOLD COLLAGEN® about their brand new and improved collagen supplement, ARTRON EXTREME®. They tell us all about collagen, why it’s important for joint health and how to use their new product…

What is collagen?

Collagen is a major structural protein in bones, muscles and joints. It plays a key role in providing the structural scaffolding for cells, tissues and organs.

How can a collagen supplement help runners?

Collagen is responsible for supporting joints, cartilage and bones. Taking a collagen supplement:

  • supports new formation of collagen and connective tissue
  • contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and muscle health
  • helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue

By taking a collagen supplement, you’ll be making sure your body has enough to keep your joints healthy and mobile, which helps to keep us running happily.
