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 body’s 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 effects related to joint discomfort. 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 effect on the immune system. Fortunately, a unique processing technique preserves the correct molecular shape of the collagen — and preserves its bioactivity — producing a form known as undenatured collagen.
