TYPE II COLLAGEN
UC-II® supplies collagen with undenatured type-ll collagen for joint function support. It is manufactured in the United States through a patented, low-temperature, non-enzymatic process. Four clinical studies show that the benefits of 40 mg of UC-ll® are joint comfort, mobility and flexibility.1
- Small and effective 40 mg dose
- Self-Af rmed GRAS
- NDI - FDA noti ed and published NDIs
- Made in the USA in a GMP- certi ed facility
UC-II® is a natural ingredient which contains a glycosylated, undenatured type-II collagen from chicken sternum.1 Previous studies have shown that small doses of UC-II modulate joint function in both OA and RA.1
UC-ll® is so effective you only need a small amount of this undenatured form of type ll collagen once-a-day to support joint comfort. Recent research suggests that UC-II® is significantly better than glucosamine + chondroitin.1
WHAT IS NATIVE COLLAGEN?
Collagens are the most abundant family of proteins in the extracellular matrix of connective tissues. Structure of native collagen: characteristic triple helix of three polypeptide chains rich in Gly, Pro and Hyp.
Based on their supramolecular organization, 26 different types of collagen have been described. Besides its biomechanical properties, collagens have other functions which are strongly dependant on the supramolecular triple helix structure: Cellular differentiation and gene expression, Cell attachment and migration, Tissue homeostasis regulation.2
