What is Collagen?
One of the body’s most important (and abundant) proteins, collagen comprises most of the connective tissues and is primarily found in the hair, skin, tendons, ligaments, bones, and nails. There are currently 28 types of collagen that have been identified; type II is the second most common type and is the main collagenous component of cartilage.
Type II collagen is the most abundant type found in hyaline (transparent) cartilage, which is collagen-right and found on many joint surfaces. It is also found in synovial joints, the sternum, and respiratory tract. In particular, type II cartilage plays an important role in joint health, comfort, mobility, and flexibility.**

This hydrolyzed (denatured) collagen is combined with hyaluronic acid, glucosamine, and chondroitin sulfate for the ultimate in nourishing joint support.** Each quick release capsule contains 500 mg of top-quality chicken sternal collagen.
