According to Arthritis Canada, arthritis is the leading cause of disability in Canada (Arthritis Canada July 2013). As the body ages, connective tissue (or the padding) for bones and joints wears down, causing inflammation, pain and the further break down of tissue.
UC-II Collagen is a highly-absorbable type of protein that's found in the cartilage, bones and tissues of animals, such as chickens. UC-II Collagen contains nutrients that are naturally found in joints. These nutrients cushion joints and bones and block enzymes that break down joint and connective tissue.
It's estimated that approximately 80% of the population is magnesium deficient, making it one of the most underrated minerals. Magnesium plays a role in bone health (about 50% of the body's magnesium is stored in bones), joint health and energy production.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant vitamin and one of the key vitamins in joint health; Among its many benefits, vitamin C is required in order for the body to synthesize collagen.
