Collagen Of High Bioavailability
sku: 1631 | 60 capsules

Pain and tenderness in the joints can limit daily activities. With age there is a continued strain on joints compromising joint cartilage and revealing small collagen fibers.  The body's immune system mistakenly identifies these collagen fibers as ‘foreign cells’ triggering an inflammatory reaction of the collagen contained in the cartilage of the joints. An inflammation soon develops and joint discomfort soon follows.

Bio-collagen with UC-II ® is a novel form of an undenatured type II collagen derived from chicken cartilage that provides targeted support for the immune- system issues associated with joint discomfort. The UC-II ® travels into the intestinal tract introducing to the immune system the same type of collagen molecules that are found in joint cartilage.  Normally when chicken cartilage is processed its molecular shape changes and as a result it loses its bioactivity and becomes denatured. Researchers have found that this has no beneficial effect on the immune system.  Fortunately a unique processing technique preserves the correct molecular shape of collagen which retains its bioactivity and produces a format known as undenatured collagen.

Scientific studies have shown that the UC-II ® helps in the normal functioning of the joints.
