UC-II Collagen Beats Glucosamine and Chondroitin for Joint Support

UC-II® is a patented collagen ingredient that is shown to be twice as effective for joint health as the two leading collagens on market - glucosamine and chondroitin.

UC-II stands for undenatured type II collagen, which means that it holds a certain chemical particle level that is achieved by using a patented, low-temperature manufacturing process. By contrast, other forms of type II collagen that are sold as dietary supplements are hydrolyzed – a chemical process that degrades chemical compounds with water and is generally viewed as lower quality.

Studies have shown that undenatured type II collagen (UC-II) is effective in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and it has been shown to be effective in treating osteoarthritis (OA). The latest research shows that UC-II is the clear choice for osteoarthritis of the knee. UC-II works with your immune system to support healthy joints and promote joint mobility and flexibility. All studies point to UC-II supplements as the best choice for all around joint health as well as the most convenient.

Specifically, the research advocates taking a dietary supplement that contains just 40 mg of UC-II to support joint comfort, flexibility and mobility. A small amount of UC-II collagen has been proven more effective than large doses of glucosamine and chondroitin.

UC-II shows exciting potential on knee health and sports-related activities. Just 40 mg of UC-II improves knee extension for better flexibility, mobility and joint comfort. It may be possible to exercise longer with UC-II before experiencing joint discomfort.

Knee extension is important for all movements in sports such as running, jumping, kicking, lifting, lunging and more. Maintaining knee health is important for everyone from a seasoned athlete to the causal exerciser because thee knee provides stability, flexibility and strength needed for comfortable workouts.

As orthopedic surgeons, many of our patients asked about supplements for joint health. Unfortunately, many supplements being sold today have ingredients with no proven value. When we decided to add joint health to our family of supplements UC-II was the clear choice based on the latest research in the field of dietary supplements for joint support.

Institute for Better Bone Health’s new Joint Formula with UC-II® is a powerful combination to improve joint comfort, increase flexibility, and support joint cartilage so you can be more active in your daily life.

In addition to superior UC-II collagen, IBBH Joint Formula with UC-II® adds two other select ingredients that act in a few weeks instead of months:

A newer compound called ASU has shown tremendous potential for those with arthritis. ASU (Avocado & Soybean Oil) helps increase production of collagen in joint surfaces, while decreasing chemicals that can cause inflammation and deterioration of cartilage.

Joint Formula with UC-II®  also includes Boswellia Extract which has been valued for thousands of years as a natural remedy for joint problems.  Boswellia Extract helps prevent breakdown of connective tissue and improves blood supply to the joints.

UC-II is recognized as “GRAS” by the FDA.  "GRAS" is an acronym for the phrase Generally Recognized As Safe for use in foods and beverages, as determined by a panel of renowned United States scientific experts.  For a substance to be GRAS, the scientific data and information must be widely known and there must be a consensus among qualified experts about its safety– so long as it is being used as intended.

UC-II is manufactured in a GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice)-certified facility. All of Institute for Better Bone Health’s supplements are manufactured in GMP world-class facilities in the United States – just one of our guaranteed Quality Standards.
