COLLAGEN TYPE 2
Collagen Type 2 is an undenatured bovine type II collagen that is sourced and manufactured in the United States.
- Manufactured using a process that maintains the integrity of the protein
- Identified as most similar to human type II collagen
- Broken down by the body into peptides that build type I and type II collagens
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. With age, collagen production declines to a level that is unsustainable for repair and replacement of this key structural protein. Replenishing collagen has recognized benefits for healthy gut function, promotion of joint health, and improved skin elasticity.
Collagen Type 2 replenishes this vital protein to support healthy aging.
