Cartilage is one of the primary connective tissues of the body, providing flexibility and support to joints. Undernatured 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 is a patented form of Undernatured (native) Type II Collagen that works with the immune system to support healthy joints. Human clinical studies have found that just one 40 mg capsule of UC-II per day can help to promote joint comfort, as well as healthy joint function and flexibility.
Take 1 capsule daily at bedtime on an empty stomach.

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.
I went through two bottles of this taking it in the morning on an empty stomach. It did nothing at all for my joints. When I switched to Natural Factors Celadrin softgels at 3 caps twice a day, I had a 90% reduction in knee pain within one week.

I've bought this for my father, who had chronic hip joint pain for months. He was taking glucosamine and it didn't help at all. After about three weeks on UC-II the pain completely disappeared.
Seems to be working for torn tendons/ligaments & dislocated shoulder

4 stars, not 5, because you can't take it with any food. Also for anyone that dislocated their shoulder, this should help, together in Celadrin & ApresFlex & Ginger. It works, good luck!
Early days yet

It is early days yet (Only received product just yesterday), but thus far I see a mild improvement. Note.. There is someone stating this product is worthless in the reviews above. They then go and say another product is great, and yet that other product is not undenatured collagen at all.. It has no relevance to state another product is better if its an entirely different product with different ingredients altogether..
