Douglas Laboratories, RheumaShield, 30 Capsules (Discontinued Item)
- Undenatured Type II Collagen Supplement
- A Dietary Supplement
RheumaShield from Douglas Laboratories contains 10 mg of native, undenatured type II collagen (UC II) from chicken sternum cartilage. UC·II? is a patented form of undenatured type II collagen. Collagen is a fibrous protein secreted by connective tissue and is the prime structural component of skin, bones and joints. It represents close to 25% of all the body's protein. Although about 15 types of collagen have been found in various parts of the body, the fibrillar type II collagen is distributed primarily in articular cartilage, i.e. cartilage associated with joints. UC·II? is from cartilage that has been sterilized without substantially altering its chemical or molecular structure. This type of collage preparation has been shown to maintain the healthy structure and function of articular joints that are damaged by inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.
