Undenatured Type II Collagen May Provide Joint Health Benefits

Undenatured type II collagen (UC-II) is collagen in its’ biologically active form. It is derived from chicken sternum cartilage. A new study suggests that supplementation with UC-II may provide joint health benefits.

Participants in the study included 96 adults with activity-related joint discomfort. They were given 40 mg of UC-II or a placebo daily for 24 weeks. The researchers measured knee range of motion and extension were evaluated at baseline and at the end of the study period.

Participants in the UC-II group saw a statistically significant increase in knee range of motion compared to the placebo group. They also saw an increase in knee extension compared to no significant increase in the placebo group.

The study was conducted by researchers from the University of Stuttgart. It was published online ahead of print on April 4, 2022 in the Journal of Integrative and Complementary Medicine.
