Joint Relief Benefits that NeoCell's Collagen Type 2 provides:
Collagen Type 2 provides essential nutrients for complete joint support. As we age, the body's ability to make the structural protein in cartilage tissue, Collagen Type 2, slows down. This is the protein needed to maintain and rebuild cartilage tissue. NeoCell's Collagen Type 2 is a naturally complete joint supplement that contains glucosamine, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid which are key components of supporting and maintaining healthy joint function.
- Supports joint comfort and mobility
- May help with joint swelling
- Synovial fluid for joint cushioning
Aging affects the body's collagen supply in two ways:
1. As we age, the body's ability to make collagen protein slows down, so there is insufficient new collagen for skin, joints and other parts of the body.
2. Collagen fibers lose their moist texture and become rigid.
Collagen Type 2: The Cartilage Protein
Collagen Type 2 makes up 50% of all protein in cartilage and 85-90% of collagen in articular cartilage. The decrease in collagen production during the aging process often results in degradation of joint strength and health. This degradation is thought to be the reason that one out of every three Americans over the age of 60 suffers from Osteoarthritis.
The Difference Between Collagen Type 1&3 and Collagen Type 2:
Scientific studies show that more than 90% of the collagen found in the body is Collagen Type 1&3. The protein composition consists of nineteen amino acids responsible for the growth and maintenance of the body with unusually high percentages of glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, which are all found in the skin and muscle. Collagen Type 2 protein consists of eighteen amino acids, which amino acid profiles parallel the profile of the joint cartilage. Collagen Type 1&3 and Collagen Type 2 should not be combined due the types having different amino acid profiles. If taken together, the two proteins will bind and form a complete protein and the body will not recognize it as collagen. It is recommended that if you want to take both sources of collagen protein, it should be done at least an hour apart.
Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement take four (4) to six (6) capsules daily with six (6) ounces of orange juice or vitamin C drink, preferably in the morning on an empty stomach. Wait 20 minutes before eating.
