Move Hydrolysed Collagen For Joints
HELP PROTECT JOINTS, REDUCE INFLAMMATION + MOVE EASILY
MOVE Hydrolysed Collagen for Joints was created specifically to help protect your joints and assist you to move more easily. It's no secret that over time, our joints, cartilage and bones are subject to continued wear & tear. Ageing and repeated movement cause tendons and ligaments to stretch; and bones to rub against each other, reducing flexibility and mobility, and causing stiffness and pain. So many of us struggle with this, without knowing that it is possible to get a helping hand in the form of joint-specific collagen. Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the body. It plays a critical role in providing support and elasticity to connective joint tissue, cartilage, bones, tendons and ligaments.
Our MOVE Collagen is hydrolysed into peptides which are easily absorbed by the body. It works by helping to reduce inflammation in the synovial fluid, thereby assisting joint movement. It has also been designed to preemptively repair joint tissue, cartilage and bone health which begin to decline as we age. MOVE uses only the world’s most superior collagen, backed by science and extensively researched and rigorously tested, for its efficacy.
Always read the label and follow the directions for use. Please check with your doctor before taking supplements, starting or stopping any medication, or if you have any general concerns.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body with over 28 known types. The most common type, that people associate all forms of collagen with, is Type 1 collagen responsible for skin, hair, nail, and gut health. Type 2 collagen is the important form involved in joint, cartilage, and bone health. This is the type of collagen used in our MOVE Hydrolysed Collagen For Joints.
Studies show that 10g per day of collagen is recommended. One serving of our MOVE Collagen equates to 5g of collagen, which is why we suggest two servings per day for optimal support. This 10g daily amount not only provides your body with adequate collagen, but assists it in generating its own. When collagen peptides are ingested, they stimulate fibroblast proliferation – the process responsible for collagen production. (Fibroblasts are a type of cell that synthesise collagen. Other than contributing to joint health, they also play an important role in wound and injury healing).
Similar to our GLOW Collagen Powders, MOVE is also a hydrolysed form of collagen meaning it has been broken down into single amino acids (the building blocks of protein) that are easily absorbed by the body. This is important because collagen is a large protein made up of 19 amino acids, with the three main amino acids being glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline. The size of collagen molecules can cause a disparity in the quality and absorption of different collagen supplements – not all collagen is equal. In order for collagen to be adequately absorbed, it must first be hydrolysed to increase its bioavailability. This is a process the body does naturally, however, consuming a collagen supplement that has already been hydrolysed means that the hard work is done for you.
Joint support and bone density
Clinical studies show that hydrolysed joint-specific collagen can stimulate collagenic tissue regeneration by increasing not only collagen synthesis but other important joint-supporting compounds as well. Other recent studies have demonstrated the ability of hydrolysed collagen to help reduce/prevent joint pain and even bone density loss. It is these results (along with the safety of collagen supplementation) that make it a highly effective and recommended support for joint/bone degeneration.

Collagen is highly anti-inflammatory. It can help protect joints by reducing inflammation and may assist in the relief of joint-related pain that is often caused by inflammation in the synovial fluid. Synovial fluid contains different proteins (including collagen) that help lubricate joints and reduce friction – supporting ease of movement.

Why is it so amazing for muscles and joints?
MOVE collagen helps reduce inflammation in the body’s synovial fluid, thereby assisting with joint movement & durability, and promoting cartilage lubrication.
What does it taste like?
MOVE is flavourless, so it can also be enjoyed in any hot or cold drink of your choice.
What is the difference between MOVE Collagen and GLOW Marine Collagen?
MOVE Collagen is bovine (beef) collagen. It contains Type 2 collagen to help protect and repair joints, enhance their durability, and assist in the relief of pain. MOVE promotes cartilage lubrication and helps reduce inflammation in the synovial fluid thereby assisting joint movement.
GLOW Marine Collagen is marine (fish) collagen. It contains Type 1 collagen to help improve skin elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles. Other benefits include helping to reduce signs of ageing and increasing skin moisture levels, helping to give skin that “GLOW”.
Will MOVE help my skin as well as my muscles & joints?
The Type 2 collagen used in MOVE is specific for joints, bone and muscles. It is different from Type 1 collagen which is specific to skin. If you’re looking for a collagen to help with reducing fine lines, wrinkles and signs of ageing, our GLOW collagen range was formulated using Type 1 collagen to target skin health. It is safe to take both GLOW and MOVE collagen on the same day in order to target both areas, but in short, MOVE won’t help skin.
How long before I see results?
On average, people tend to see results after 4 weeks, however, this will vary from person to person. For best/fastest results, it is important to take MOVE every day.
Can I have it while pregnant or breastfeeding?
Our MOVE Powder is safe to consume while pregnant and breastfeeding. However, as everyone’s situation is different, we recommend that you check with your healthcare professional to see if this powder would be beneficial for you. Please refer to the nutritional information & ingredients list.
Can I take it with other medications?
MOVE is all-natural and it contains nothing artificial. We are unable to provide exact advice on whether it is safe to consume whilst taking other specific medications. As everyone’s situation is different, we recommend that you check with your healthcare professional to see if this powder would be beneficial for you.
