What is Collagen?
The word "collagen" is derived from kolla, the Greek word for glue. Collagen is the primary protein in the body. There are many types of collagen protein throughout the body however, the most widely researched types of collagen are Types I, II, and III. Types I & III are the major components of skin, hair, nails, muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, gums, teeth, eyes, and blood vessels. Type II is the major component of joint cartilage.
What is Immucell Collagen Type 2?
Collagen Type 2 is UnHydrolyzed Chicken Sternal Cartilage Collagen Type II powder or liquid concentrate. Immucell Collagen Type 2 is a new food supplement that provides all necessary nutrients to promote healthy joint cartilage and to repair the damage that causes the pain and swelling associated with arthritis. Advanced exclusive technology is used to extract Immucell Collagen Type 2 from young chicken sternum cartilage. It contains 65-70% Collagen Type II and naturally contains 30-35% carbohydrates (chondroitin, glucosamine & hyaluronic acid), which are the major components of joint cartilage.
How does aging affect collagen in the body?
Aging affects the body's collagen in two ways:
a) As we age, the body's ability to make collagen protein slows down so there is insufficient new collagen to make skin, joints and other parts of the body.
b) Collagen fibers lose their moist texture and become rigid. Much of this damage is caused by free radicals: unstable molecules created when the body uses oxygen.
What is the difference between collagen types?
COLLAGEN TYPE I & III:
Scientific studies show that more than 90% of the collagen found in the body is Collagen Type I & III. The protein composition consists of nineteen amino acids responsible for growth, maintenance and repair of the body with unusually high proportions of the amino acids glycine and proline, as well as hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine, all found in skin and muscle. This is what makes Super Collagen upplements effective in those areas
COLLAGEN TYPE II :
Collagen Type II is the major component of hyaline joint cartilage. The protein content is between 65% to 70% (less than Type I and III) and naturally occurring mucopolysaccharides (carbohydrates) 30% to 35 %. The mucopolysaccharides consists of Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and Hyaluronic Acid, the makeup of synovial fluid and sugar aminos required to make collagen type II cells. Immucell Collagen II is laboratory tested.
The composition of Chicken Type II Collagen protein consists of eighteen amino acids. The percentage and molecular weight of each amino acid is different than those found in Type I & III. In addition, Type II is low in hydroxyproline and trace of hydroxylysine, the primary difference in comparison with Type I and III gearing type II to address cartilage tissue properties.
One of every 3 Americans over the age of 60 suffers from Osteoarthritis. It is a natural wear and tear of our joint cartilage. As we age, the body's ability to make the protein Type II Collagen slows down. This is the protein needed to maintain and rebuild cartilage tissues
How does ImmuCell Collagen II Work?
ImmuCell Collagen II is taken orally as a dietary supplement working naturally within the body as a food source that is bioavailable, meaning it is a ready source of nutrition. It is substantially more effective than just the supplementation of the carbohydrates Glucosamine and Chondroitin. The Immucell Collagen II in ImmuCell Collagen II naturally supplies the nutrients necessary to support cartilage.
The recommended daily supplementation of Immucell Collagen Type 2 is 2,400-3,600mg. taken on empty stomach for optimum utilization. Wait 20 minutes before eating.
Who needs Immucell Collagen Type 2?
One of every three Americans over the age of 60 suffers from Osteoarthritis. It is a natural wear and tear of our joint cartilage, even active younger adults suffer from joint damage. As we age, the body's ability to make the protein Type II Collagen slows down. This is the protein needed to maintain and rebuild cartilage tissue. Immucell Collagen Type 2 is a nutritional dietary supplement that supplies necessary elements to help the body support joint health. The rising number of baby boomers will be more than 60 million in the 21st century. The demand for arthritis prevention will surpass the demand for treatment. A daily supplement of Immucell Collagen Type 2 is the natural answer.
Osteoarthritis vs Rheumatoid arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease whereby the body's own immune system mistakenly attacks healthy joint cartilage cells causing joint deformity and painful conditions. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease due to the wear and tear of joint cartilage. The damaged joint inflames causing a painful condition. Immucell Collagen Type 2 contains natural nutrients from Immucell Collagen II to supply the body with all the ingredients required to make collagen type II protein and support the joints.
Undenatured vs. denatured Collagen Type II
Undenatured collagen Type II is native collagen purified from raw sternum without changing its original large molecules and active sites. Undenatured active sites are recognized in the small intestine, and is theorized to turn off the signal that creates the attack on the body's cartilage.
The rising number of baby boomers will be in excess of 140 million in the 21st century. The demand for arthritis prevention will surpass the demand for treatment. A daily supplement of Immucell Collagen Type 2 is the natural answer.
