  • Helps reduce joint pain and stiffness in 7 days
  • Reduces joint pain associated with osteoarthritis
  • Supports a healthy inflammatory response

If you’ve been browsing the shelves of your local health food store, you’ve likely noticed different types of collagen available. But what’s the difference between type I, II, III, IV, and beyond? To put it simply, each type is found and used in different areas of the body. Type II collagen is found in the flexible, elastic cartilage that supports your joints and helps them move smoothly, absorb impact, and reduce friction between bones. Breakdown and loss of this cartilage, a common side effect of aging and osteoarthritis, can result in discomfort and inflammation at the joints, making movement difficult and painful.   

To keep cartilage abundant, we need plenty of collagen. To build collagen, we need amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, that link into long strands to form collagen. Those strands are sequenced in different arrangements, and these differences in structure determine the type of collagen. 

Unlike supplemental collagen peptides, which are broken down into shorter sequences of amino acids for easy absorption to activate specific tissues, type II undenatured collagen is in its original structure. When it’s taken supplementally, we don’t digest or absorb type II collagen. As it passes through your digestive system, the collagen structure communicates with your immune system, which directs your cells to halt inflammation and ignite cartilage production. This helps keep cartilage elastic, making for easier, pain-free movement.
