[Discover Recogen®]— Part 1: What is Recogen®?

Part I: What is Recogen®? 

Recogen® is a premium brand first developed and conceptualized by NCI as a supplement for joint health in 2004. As a made-in-German 100% Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP) food supplement, Recogen® contains high concentration of crucial joint building blocks, such as glycine and proline.

 Which type of collagen is Recogen® made of? 

Recogen® uses bovine hides of healthy animals which contains Type 1 and Type 3 collagen (5%). Both are later treated enzymatically and broken down into peptide form to become the BCP found in Recogen®.

 💡 Difference between the types of collagen💡

The type of collagen is insignificant in clinical tests. The difference between type I and II collagen is negligible (<1%).

Once broken down into peptides, the effects depend on the right peptides instead of the source or type of collagen derived from. If you come across products emphasising the "types" of collagens, it is most likely for marketing purposes🙊.


So why do some products containing Type II collagen work and some don't?

By right, a hydrolyzed type II collagen could stimulate cartilage growth with a suitable composition of peptides. However, unlike Recogen®, some products contain collagen that is not supported by profound clinical data. When the peptides do not interact with the cells, it is unlikely to show beneficial results for conditions such as Osteoarthritis. 

The Recogen® Difference

BCP stands for Bioactive collagen peptides. We describe the activity of the peptides as bioactive due to their capability to stimulate human fibroblasts (cells that help with the formation of connective tissues), osteoblasts/osteoclasts and chondrocytes (cells involved in bone remodeling, development and growth). 

The protein structure of BCP is similar to the ones found in humans, allowing our bodies to absorb BCP into our bloodstream better. Since the amino acid composition in BCP is similar to collagen, it also helps stimulate cartilage regeneration which benefits those at risk of degenerative joint diseases such as Osteoarthritis.

As a joint care supplement, Recogen® is an collagen supplement that helps to nourish body tissues, cartilage, bones🦴, tendons, ligaments, hair, nails and skin. So, what makes Recogen® stand out from other brands?


(1) Extremely low molecular weight

Compared to the 16,000 kDaltons for the standard glucosamine formulations, the BCP in Recogen® has an extremely low molecular weight of 3-6 kDaltons. The extremely low molecular weight boosts excellent absorption by the body to reach targeted areas. This is one of the reasons why Recogen® has worked so well for people who have failed to see results with standard glucosamine products.


(2) Short Peptide Chains

The absorption rate of Recogen® is enhanced with the short peptide chains to reach targeted areas✔️.

(3) Backed with extensive scientific studies
The beneficial effect of Bioactive Collagen Peptides on joint health was first discovered in the 12th century, between 1098 to 1179, when Saint Hildegard of Bingen first reported the beneficial effect of calf cartilage broth on joint pain. Since then, there have been numerous scientific reports over 30 years describing the benefits of Bioactive Collagen Peptides📚.
