Best Joint Flex Featuring UC-II® uses a standardized‚ undenatured (or “native”) type II collagen complex derived from chicken sternum cartilage. This form of type II collagen has been researched since 1977 for its apparent specialized ability to safely impact joint health. The science behind Best Joint Flex suggests that UC-II® can help in fine-tuning the body’s immune system to support maintenance of healthy joints.
UC-II® is manufactured at a low temperature to ensure that the collagen protein is not denatured‚ thereby preserving its biological activity. Research suggests that UC-II® supports joint mobility and flexibility differently than other joint health ingredients such as chondroitin and glucosamine.
Articular (hyaline) cartilage is produced by the living cartilage tissue and has various mechanical functions that are indispensable for preserving joint integrity. It contains only one cell type‚ the chondrocyte‚ surrounded by a multicomponent matrix of connective tissue‚ of which cartilage is a major component. Some 60 to 70% of the dry weight of cartilage is made up of collagen fibrils‚ mainly composed of type II collagen. Collagen fibrils form the structural backbone of the joint’s tissue matrix.
Native collagens consist of three polypeptide chains that form a triple helix. Studies suggest that this triple helix is highly resistant to digestion following oral consumption. The collagen triple helix can have specific interactions with immune tissue in the small intestine‚ which can then facilitate immune system action to help maintain healthy joint tissue. This is most likely to occur with native‚ undenatured‚ rather than denatured (hydrolyzed) collagen.
