COLLACOMFORTTM un-denatured type II collagen

Type I collagen is mainly extracted from pigskin, cowhide or fish while type II collagen is extracted from chicken cartilage.

In 1993, a renowned international scientific journal (SCIENCE, VOL.261, 24 September 1993) discovered that functional type II collagen is the main component in cartilage tissue and that daily intake of low-dose functional type II collagen can ameliorate the symptoms of patients with rheumatoid arthritis. An international nutrition journal (Journal of Nutrition. 1999; 129: 1891-1895) further proved with animal experimentation that oral administration of large molecularsized collagen can increase the collagen content in articular cartilage, as well as replenish it in the organs and encourage repair and replenishment. Later studies have also shown the beneficial effects of functional type II collagen on arthritis.
