Joint cartilage is a firm, rubbery substance on the end of bones that decreases friction and prevents joints from rubbing together. It is also a shock absorber, made out of Type II Collagen. Cartilage Hx® helps support joint health, mobility and flexibility. Undenatured or non-hydrolyzed type II Collagen is Collagen in its biologically active form. It has been studied in the support and maintenance of strong, healthy bones.†

The Science Behind Ingredients In Cartilage Hx®
UC-II® is the undenatured form of type II collagen, a nutritional supplement, and is derived from chicken sternum cartilage. It is a powdered, glycosylated, and shelf-resistant component. UC-II® is also a shock absorber, made out of Type II Collagen. Cartilage Hx® helps support knee function in healthy adults during strenuous exercise and may also support joint health. Collagen, the most abundant protein of mammals, has specific connective tissue types for skin, bones and cell surfaces, while type II collagen (UC-II®) forms the main structure of cartilage tissue. Even at the smaller dosages, UC-II® has also been reported to be more effective in the support of healthy joints, tendons and ligaments than the glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate supplements, which are the supplements most frequently used in the market. 
Research published in the International Journal of Medical Sciences has shown that undenatured type II collagen (UC-II®) is effective in the support of joint comfort and mobility, as well as flexibility. The present clinical trial evaluated the safety and efficacy of UC-II®, which showed significant enhancement in daily activities and an improvement in their quality of life.
