Currently, one in three Americans over the age of 60 suffers from osteoarthritis (OA) while active younger adults can suffer from joint damage. As we age, the body's ability to make type 2 collagen protein slows down and this is the protein needed to maintain and rebuild joint cartilage tissue.
ImmuCell® Collagen Type 2 is a food sourced (chicken sternal cartilage) supplement that holds a high concentration of joint-saving nutrients including hyaluronic acid (HA), glucosamine, and high levels of chondroitin, the major components of joint cartilage. These necessary elements support and maintain healthy joints and repair the damage that causes pain and swelling associated with arthritis. Chondroitin also acts as an anti-inflammatory compound and pain modulator without the negative side effects of non-steroidal medicines while enhancing the synthesis of cartilage and HA. Supplementing with ImmuCell® Collagen Type 2 focuses on the regenerating effects for skin and connective tissue health. In the body, collagen and HA are almost always found together; collagen provides the mechanical strength for connective tissues and HA, with its ability to bind enormous amounts of water, serves to lubricate these same tissues providing necessary hydration. As the aging process begins, production of this important moisturizing lubricant slows resulting in wrinkles, joint pain, and other connective tissue complications.

The suggested use is to take 4 to 6 capsules daily with six ounces of orange juice or vitamin C drink, preferably in the morning on an empty stomach. Wait 20 minutes before eating. I'm not much of a juice drinker, so I take it with my lemon water (hardest thing is to wait 20 minutes before I have my first cup of coffee). As I mentioned I have been very careful getting back to running. I spent 4 weeks in PT and waited a full 7 weeks post surgery to start my back to running program. In addition I have continued with my PT exercises to strengthen my hips and glutes and cross train on the trainer. I have been taking this supplement for 4 weeks and I have not had any knee pain. I am hoping that with the combination of my exercise and supplement regiment, I will continue with pain free knees for many years to come - and possibly less wrinkles!
