Joint Relief Benefits that NeoCell's Collagen Type 2 provides:
Collagen Type 2 provides essentialnutrients for complete joint support. As we age, the body's ability to make thestructural protein in cartilage tissue, Collagen Type 2, slows down. This isthe protein needed to maintain and rebuild cartilage tissue. NeoCell's CollagenType 2 is a naturally complete joint supplement that contains glucosamine,chondroitin and hyaluronic acid which are key components of supporting andmaintaining healthy joint function.*Benefits*:
Aging affects the body's collagen supply in two ways:
1. As we age, the body's ability to make collagen protein slowsdown, so there is insufficient new collagen for skin, joints and other parts ofthe body.
2. Collagen fibers lose their moist texture and become rigid.*
Collagen Type 2: The Cartilage Protein
Collagen Type 2 makes up 50% of allprotein in cartilage and 85-90% of collagen in articular cartilage. Thedecrease in collagen production during the aging process often results indegradation of joint strength and health. This degradation is thought to be thereason that one out of every three Americans over the age of 60 suffers fromOsteoarthritis.*
The Difference Between Collagen Type 1&3 and Collagen Type 2:
Scientiﬁc studies show that more than 90% of the collagen foundin the body is Collagen Type 1&3. The protein composition consists ofnineteen amino acids responsible for the growth and maintenance of the bodywith unusually high percentages of glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, whichare all found in the skin and muscle. Collagen Type 2 protein consists ofeighteen amino acids, which amino acid proﬁles parallel the proﬁle of the jointcartilage. Collagen Type 1&3 and Collagen Type 2 should not be combined duethe types having different amino acid proﬁles. If taken together, the twoproteins will bind and form a complete protein and the body will not recognizeit as collagen. It is recommended that if you want to take both sources ofcollagen protein, it should be done at least an hour apart.*
