NOW UC-II Type 2 Collagen - Excellent!
My wife and I - 65 and 70 years old - supplement with NOW UC-II Type 2 Collagen every night before bedtime on an empty stomach. Collagen Type II makes up 50-60% of protein in cartilage, makes up 85-90% of collagen in articular cartilage, may reduce popping knees, and may support back, jaw, and joints. It works for us. Would not miss a day. Good product and excellent value.
I'm 46 years old and since I was 24 I've been suffering from back problems, mainly herniated discs (in the 3 regions of the spine). I've been using this product for 5 years and to my surprise, my pain crises have decreased a lot and my hernias have regressed! I perform imaging exams every year and I was able to prove the significant improvement of my problem.
Recently I had relapsed of my back pain and being diagnosed by doctor as "acute prolapsed disc". The doctor recommended that I take Type II Collagen to aid in recovery. In general, it did helped a bit, as more importantly you still need to exercise regularly..... So everyone keep a healthy lifestyle. Good luck in the coming year......
Love this quality product because it actually works!! It has helped me with my arthritis in my knee, improving my pain and mobility. It hasn't eliminated it totally but it has lessened dramatically. It has also been a great help to my husband too. The key is to continue to take it. It gets better and better over time.
Nice little pills to swallow, feel fine inside me, and I like the idea that they are reducing my joint inflammation. Hard to say what contribution they made (as I took a range of measures) but the hip pain has subsided greatly now 😄 Will probably continue them for a while and see if the knee pain can keep improving too.
