Type II Collagen (UC-II) Works with the Immune System to Support Joint Health¹
The body's immune system can inadvertently begin reacting to proteins found in joint cartilage, specifically Type II Collagen. Studies have shown that the unique undenatured form of Type II Collagen (UC-II) found in Move Free Ultra® Triple Action can reach immune cells in the gut and help teach the immune system to ignore these joint cartilage proteins. This process is called "oral tolerance" and can result in improved joint comfort. Other types of collagen are not processed in this same way and are therefore not effective in such a small dose.Type II Collagen (UC-II) Helps Maintain Cartilage¹
Cartilage is a thin, elastic tissue that protects the bone and makes it possible for the joint surfaces to slide easily over each other. It also serves as a shock-absorber and lubricates the joint to allow for seamless motion. Unfortunately, cartilage has a limited capacity to repair itself from the wear and tear of daily activity. Move Free Ultra® Triple Action helps maintain cartilage.
Hyaluronic Acid Cushions and Lubricates Joints†
Move Free Ultra® Triple Action contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a potent form of one of the main lubricating components found in your joints. As we get older, our HA tends to decrease, which can reduce joint cushioning. Since HA is naturally present in your body, you already have built-in pathways to absorb and use it. The HA in Joint Fluid is similar in molecular size to naturally-occurring HA, and a clinical study shows that when taken orally, this form of HA is absorbed directly into the joints.
Boron Helps Maintain Healthy Bones†
Move Free Ultra® Triple Action contains boron, an ingredient that helps maintain healthy Vitamin D, Calcium and Magnesium levels for healthier bones. Because joints receive their essential nutrients through their adjoining bones, healthy bones are key for healthy joints.
