Chicken Collagen Type II

Raw Material:

Cartilage from chicken controlled by an official veterinarian and approved for human consumption


Type II collagen is the most abundant collagen found in hyaline cartilage comprising 80 to 90% of the total collagen content. Chicken collagen II is also known as type II chicken collagen and is abbreviated as CCII. Type II chicken collagen shares some similar antigenic regions with type II human collagen. Autoimmune response to type II collagen is thought to be a significant factor in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis.

Studies suggest that oral type II chicken collagen may be beneficial to some with rheumatoid arthritis, post-surgical joint pain, post-traumatic pain, and back and neck pain
Chicken collagen is said to work by causing the body to produce substances that fight inflammation. Chicken collagen also contains the chemicals chondroitin and glucosamine, which might help rebuild cartilage.
