Under everyday circumstances, the body's immune system can inadvertently begin reacting to proteins found in joint cartilage, specifically Type II Collagen. Studies have shown that the unique undenatured form of Type II Collagen (UC-II) found in this product can reach immune cells in the gut and help teach the immune system to ignore these joint cartilage proteins. This process is called oral tolerance and can result in improved joint comfort and range of motion.*^ Other forms of collagen are processed in a way that causes them to lose their ability to affect joint health in this way. UC-II, a breakthrough new ingredient, helps you get relief from your achy joint in just one small, easy-to-swallow tablet. It is the same protein found in healthy cartilage. A patented process gently preserves Type II Collagen from cartilage, leaving the protein intact. Being intact is important for your body to get the joint health benefits from a small amount of collagen. UC-II actually helps reprogram your immune system which convinces cartilage to maintain a healthy structure.^ Other types of collagen are not processed in this same way and are therefore not effective in such a small dose. Joint fluid (hyaluronic acid) is a mega-potent form of the molecule in lubricating fluid that already exists naturally in your joints. Without it there would be nothing to cushion and keep those hard-working joints from rubbing. As we age, our level of hyaluronic acid tends to go down. The good news is that because it's naturally present throughout your body, you already have built-in pathways to absorb and utilize it. and a clinical study shows that when taken orally, it's absorbed directly into the joints.**
