Now Foods, UC-II, Undenatured Type II Collagen, 60 Vcaps
By Now Foods6 Reviews
Expiration Date: Aug 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Cartilage is one of the primary connective tissues of the body, providing flexibility and support to bone joints. Undenatured Type II Collagen is the principal structural protein in cartilage that is responsible for its tensile strength and toughness. Derived from chicken sternum cartilage, UC-II consists of Undenatured (native) Type II Collagen that works with the immune system to support healthy joints and promote joint mobility and flexibility. UC-II's patent protected composition has demonstrated its efficacy in human clinical studies. NOW UC-II is enhanced with Aquamin Red Algae Minerals, a natural source of calcium and over 70 trace minerals.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I have tried almost every supplement advertised for healing tendinitis. This particular type of collagen is the only thing so far that has been of noticeable benefit to the damaged tendon in my knee.
Before I let my-12-year-old dog take 1/5 of capsule every night, she could not jump because she was old. She can jump now. I am amazed!
