Tender‚ sensitive joints can limit everyday activities. As people age and continue to put stress on their joints‚ they can compromise joint cartilage—which exposes small collagen fibers. The body’s immune system mistakenly identifies these collagen fibers as foreign cells. This triggers an inflammatory response against the collagen-containing cartilage in one's own joints. Inflammation and joint discomfort can soon follow.
New data show that a patented collagen provides targeted support for the immune issues related to joint discomfort.
Life Extension® now offers Bio-Collagen with Patented UC-II®—a novel form of undenatured type II collagen from chicken cartilage. 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.
Not just any form of collagen will do. 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. The result of this innovative process is an undenatured chicken collagen called Bio-Collagen with Patented UC-II®.
Scientific studies have found that UC-II® reduced sensitive joint discomfort and eased joint function. 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 days.
