(Undenatured Type II Collagen)
UC II is what makes Clear Choice Joint Formula truly unique and revolutionary at treating arthritis and improving joint mobility for your dog.
It is actually UNdenatured type II collagen and works completely differently than the much cheaper denatured type II collagens found in many joint supplements.
We have chosen the best source of UCII, patented and very expensive and we use it under a license agreement in our Clear Choice Joint Formula for your Dogs.
UC II actually tells the body to stop attacking and damaging the smooth cartilage that lines every mobile joint in your dogs body. UC II easily explained, modulates the immune system to restore and not degrade joints!
In head to head tests, research has shown that UCII totally outperformed other joint remedies such as glucosamine and chondroitin. In fact, whether tested in humans, horses or dogs, it is a wonderful breakthrough in arthritis treatment. It even helps treat stubborn rheumatoid arthritis and in human research Harvard University Researchers were truly impressed by its effectiveness.
So far nothing has come close to UCII in terms of arthritis treatment.
Primary Benefits: We chose UCII for our joint formula because quite simply, there is no one product on the market that works better for arthritis than UCII. Numerous studies have shown its vast superiority to glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM etc. It blows them all away in terms of effectiveness. This is one VERY expensive product and its worth it because it works.
Secondary Benefits: Not just great for arthritis (both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis) but also increases joint flexibility and mobility. It also decreases pain. UCII by itself is the number one natural treatment for arthritis.
What It Means for your Dog!
For any dog suffering from progressive cartilage damage (which ultimately means any dog suffering from rheumatoid arthritis or long term osteoarthritis), reprogramming the immune system with undenatured type II chicken collagen as found in UC-II is an essential component of joint repair regimen. Your dog will be running and walking with more ease, jumping into the car without assistance and enjoying their daily function and play with less pain and inflammation!
There have been a number of studies conducted with UC-II on both animals and humans, including research at the Harvard University Medical school — all of which have shown that the undenatured type II chicken collagen found in UC-II effectively reprograms the immune system to promote healthy joints and increase joint mobility and flexibility.
Researchers at Harvard Medical School found that six of ten rheumatoid arthritis patients taking undenatured type II collagen for three months showed substantial improvement, while one patient recovered completely. In addition, there were no side effects. And finally, in a 90-day, double-blind, placebo-controlled, follow-up study on patients with severe rheumatoid arthritis, Harvard scientists found that 28 patients taking undenatured type II collagen showed significant improvement compared to the placebo group, while four patients recovered completely.2
In a 2009 randomized, double-blind, clinical study, 40 mg of UC-II was more than two-times as effective as 1,500 mg of glucosamine + 1,200 mg of chondroitin in supporting joint health, comfort, and flexibility.1 UC-II outperformed the glucosamine/chondroitin combination using three different assessment tools: WOMAC, VAS, and Lequesne functional index. UC-II was also shown to improve quality of life. UC-II significantly decreased pain during daily activities. Some benefits of collagen supplements are improvement while walking on a flat surface, performing heavy domestic duties, ascending stairs, and while resting in bed. UC-II was also shown to be safe and well-tolerated with no known side effects.
