Bio-Collagen with Patented UC-II®
40 mg 60 small capsules
Item Catalog Number:
01631

Tender, sensitive joints can limit everyday activities. As you age and continue to put stress on your joints, you can compromise joint cartilage — which exposes small collagen fibers. Your body’s immune system mistakenly identifies these collagen fibers as “foreign cells.” This triggers an inflammatory response against the collagen-containing cartilage in your own joints. Inflammation and joint discomfort can soon follow.

Bio-Collagen with Patented UC-II® is a novel form of undenatured type II collagen from chicken cartilage shown to provide targeted support for the immune issues related to joint discomfort.79 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.

Normally, when chicken collagen is processed, its molecular shape is changed. It loses bioactivity and becomes denatured — which researchers found has no beneficial effect80 on the immune system. Fortunately, a unique processing technique preserves the correct molecular shape of the collagen81,82and preserves its bioactivity83 — producing a form known as undenatured collagen.

Scientific studies have found that UC-II® reduced sensitive joint discomfort and eased joint function.79,84-88 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!79

I experienced substantial reduction of soreness in my hands and joints within two weeks of starting this supplement. Now at 6 weeks, I'm very pleased with my improved use of hands. My sister has been on prescription meds for the same issues, and has experienced limited benefit. Taking it first thing in the morning, an hour before breakfast, works wonderfully. Capsules are small and easily swallowed.

I get muscle and joint aches from intense exercise. I wasn't sure this product would do anythings since several factors are responsible for my condition. I found stretching and modifying my excercise routines to be more effective. I don't suffer from chronic join pains.

I didn't have any side effects so it is worth a try to see if it helps your condition.

            Both my husband and I take this product and have noticed a distinct improvement in how our joints feel. No aches! We still take cartilage rebuilding supplements and hope that between the two our joints will become more youthful. There are no side effects, it is a small sized pill, it is just one per day and is reasonably cost effective.

              I have high hopes for this product and hope it's the answer for my knee problem. Had arthroscopy in Feb. for torn cartilage. So far, am doing pretty well. Will take bio collagen long term to try and regenerate my cartilage. Have read good things on other sites about it Lef has the best products.

                Having read of Bio-Collagen I thought it might be more effective than the products I had used to improve my hip joint. Within a few weeks I noticed that my hip joint seemed to be somewhat improved and have continued taking Bil-Collagen to maintain and perhaps improve my joints mobility and make me more comfortable.

                  This one little capsule, taken early in the morning on an empty stomach, has improved my knee and joint discomfort so that I am now active again. When I ran out of this supplement, within days the discomfort returned, and it was unbearable. After two or three days after I restarted this supplement, my knees were fine again. It really works!
