Need Help For Sore Joints?

Don't take joint pain sitting down. Age, injury, and certain chronic conditions (like overweight) trigger an inflammatory immune response that not only causes pain but can also damage connective joint tissue. Regular physical activity is an excellent way to maintain healthy joint tissue and range of motion, as well as help manage joint discomfort in arthritis. But exercise itself can damage joint cartilage and lead to temporary or recurring joint pain or tenderness, even in the healthiest of joints.

Current therapies often fall short. Chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine are compounds naturally found in healthy joint tissue that are often recommended to support joint integrity, but may not effectively reduce pain for all patients. And long-term use of NSAIDs and other common pain relievers may cause serious concerns, such as gastrointestinal bleeding or impaired liver, kidney, and/or cardiovascular function.

A new way to look at rebuilding joints and reducing pain. UC-II and THIAA are novel ingredients derived from natural sources to provide safe pain relief and potentially more effective support for overall joint health. UC-II contains undenatured type II collagen; only the undenatured form is biologically active. Laboratory studies suggest that UC-II helps reduce inflammatory immune factors that destroy joint cartilage. The denatured (hydrolyzed) form of type II collagen is no longer biologically active and consists only of fragments that are absorbed as nutrients. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in healthy volunteers showed that UC-II improved knee extension, and demonstrated the potential to lengthen the period of pain-free strenuous exertion and alleviate associated joint pain. Tetrahydro iso-alpha acids (THIAA) from hops have also been shown to reduce inflammatory factors associated with joint pain, and have demonstrated a high degree of safety with reduced potential of dangerous effects associated with NSAIDs.
