Bio-Collagen with Patented UC-II 40mg 60 Mini Capsule
Tender, sensitive joints can limit everyday activities. As you age and continue to put stress on your joints, you can compromise joint cartilage which exposes small collagen fibers. Your bodys immune system mistakenly identifies these collagen fibers as foreign cells. This triggers an inflammatory response against the collagen-containing cartilage in your own joints. Inflammation and joint discomfort can soon follow. Bio-Collagen with Patented UC-II is a novel form of undenatured type II collagen from chicken cartilage shown to provide targeted support for the immune issues related to joint discomfort.79 Taken orally, UC-II travels to the intestinal tract where it introduces the immune system to the same type of collagen molecules found in joint cartilage. Normally, when chicken collagen is processed, its molecular shape is changed. It loses bioactivity and becomes denatured which researchers found has no beneficial effect80 on the immune system. Fortunately, a unique processing technique preserves the correct molecular shape of the collagen81,82 and preserves its bioactivity83 producing a form known as undenatured collagen. Scientific studies have found that UC-II reduced sensitive joint discomfort and eased joint function.79,84-88 One double-blind, placebo-controlled study on patients found that UC-II provided relief by 33%, and decreased joint discomfort scores by a remarkable 40% in just 90 days79
