Collagen hydrolysate (CH) has received increasing attention in recent decades. This review mainly summarizes the recent developments (year 2010-2017) regarding the beneficial effects of CH in animal experiments and clinical trials. These beneficial effects include antioxidant, anti aging, anti osteoporotic and anti osteoarthritis, anti-inflammatory, anti tumor, wound healing, anti hypertensive and anti atherosclerotic, anti obesity and hypoglycemic effects. We also make comments on the current researches and give suggestions for future studies in this review. Considering the wide availability of CH in the field of pharmaceuticals and foods, the study of the potential beneficial effects of CH provides guidance to develop CH-based health care supplements for disease prevention and/or treatment.
