The main structural protein in cartilage is type II collagen. Scientific evidence has demonstrated the effectiveness of undenatured type II collagen in supporting joint health. Undenatured type II collagen means type II collagen in its native form. It works via oral tolerance, an immune-mediated process. The ingestion of UC-II® undenatured type II collagen trains the immune system to recognize type II collagen as a protein that occurs naturally in the body. This suppresses the body’s own immune system to launch an attack on its own type II collagen. This prevents the potentially dangerous over-reactive immune system, to keep the immune system in balance. This results in lesser inflammation and pain in rheumatoid arthritis patients. Undenatured type II collagen was demonstrated to increase the immune system components that favour the anti-inflammatory pathways and may trigger the natural rebuilding of the joint cartilage in rheumatoid arthritis.
This product contains 40mg of Chicken Cartilage Extract (providing 10mg Type II Collagen).
Kordel’s JFlexi with UC-ll® is small and it works. Not only it is smaller than glucosamine pills, but clinical research shows that UC-ll® supports joint health better than glucosamine + chondroitin. It is derived from chicken sternum cartilage and is suitable for individuals who are allergic to seafood. It is suitable to be taken by diabetics because it does not affect the body’s blood sugar control. UC-II®
UC-II® supplies collagen with undenatured type ll collagen for joint health 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.
