Chia de Gracia´s Collagen+ contains Petagile® collagen, rosehip, msm, hyaluronic acid and a pinch of love.
Collagen is an important component of articular cartilage which is responsible for maintaining the flexible structure of cartilage. 30% of body’s proteins are made up of collagen and therefore it is especially useful in soft tissue repair processes. When used internally, collagen peptides stimulate the body's own collagen production, e.g. in cartilage and tendons.
CdG Collagen+ contains high-quality PETAGILE® collagen, which has been shown to be effective in horses and dogs * in clinical trials. Studies have shown that orally ingested PETAGILE® collagen ends up to articular cartilage and supports cartilage tissue regeneration.
In addition to collagen, rosehip, which is rich in vitamin C has been added to the product, as vitamin C is needed in the cartilage to form collagen. CdG Collagen+ also contains msm and hyaluronic acid.

Specific bioactive collagen peptides (PETAGILE ® ) as supplement for horses with osteoarthritis: A two-centred study
In a 12-week study in horses, the use of collagen peptides clearly reduced the symptoms of osteoarthritis (pain and lameness). In the study, 38 horses were divided into three groups, of which the horses in the one group received either 25g or 50g of collagen peptides and the other group did not receive any (placebo).
The horses were examined by veterinarians at the beginning of the study, halfway through, and at the end of the study. Veterinarians performed bending tests on the horses, monitoring the intensity of lameness, rotational pain, stride length, and joining phase in the trot. The study showed a positive effect of Petagile collagen peptides with 25-50g daily use to relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis.
