Collagen Type II 500 mg 60 vegcaps by Klaire Labs P8571
Natural Collagen "Type II" by Klair Labs (60 caps)
Collagen Type II by Klair Labs contains natural "BioCell Collagen®" which is hydrolyzed type II collagen that provides a complex matrix of elements (collagen type II, chondroitin sulfate, and hyaluronic acid) that support joint and skin health.†
As we age, the body's ability to make the collagen slows down. BioCell Collagen is a concentrated bioavailable and bioactive formula of naturally occurring molecules that play a vital role in the body's ability to maintain healthy connective tissues, flexible joints, and youthful-looking skin.
Together these elements provide multi-dimensional nutritional support that helps the body more effectively support connective tissue health. BioCell Collagen is non-GMO and free of gluten, soy, shellfish, fish, egg, milk, peanuts, and sugar.
Dietary Collagen type II protein from chicken cartilage parallels the amino acid structure in the human body and is highly bioavailable.*
Suggested Usage: Take 1-2 capsules two or three times daily or as prescribed by your physician. Can be taken on an empty stomach and wait 20 minutes before eating.
Ingredients: 2 capsules contain 1000 mg of Natural BioCell Collagen Type II® (Providing 600 mg of hydrolyzed chicken collagen type II, 200mg of Chondroitin Sulfate, and 100 mg of Hyaluronic Acid)

BioCell Collagen is non-GMO and free of gluten, soy, shellfish, fish, egg, milk, peanuts, and sugar.
Webmd describes "Collagen" as the following:
"A protein that is part of cartilage, bone, and other tissues in animals and humans. Chicken collagen is used for joint pain associated with many types of arthritis and surgery, as well as back pain, neck pain, and pain following injury."

Collagen Type II
Collagen Type II is a fibrillar collagen with a triple helix made up of three identical α chains built with thousands of amino acids. Collagen Type II is the main fibrous structure of articular/hyaline cartilage throughout the body. Cartilage is an unbelievably tough, viscoelastic tissue covering the end of each bone and serving as a protective, joint-cushioning, shock absorber.* The natural aging process is associated with diminished collagen type II synthesis and a reduction in the capacity of the body to repair and maintain joint tissues.* The major constituents of cartilage are a network of Collagen Type II fibers within a glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycan matrix.
As a biological tissue lubricant, Hyaluronic Acid’s viscosity is thousands of times that of water so one of it’s primary functions in the body is to bind water to tissues and lubricate moveable parts of the body.* Hyaluronic Acid plays an important role in cellular function, lubrication, tissue hydration but in avascular tissue like cartilage, it acts as a key mechanisms for the delivery of nutrients to cartilage tissue and transporting waste out.* Hyaluronic Acid plays a role in the complex process of tissue repair and wound healing as well as contributing to the maintenance of cartilage and the joint-lubricating, synovial fluid levels needed to support healthy joints function and structure. An age-related decline in hyaluronic acid synthesis is thought to be a contributing factor to brittle, deteriorating joints.* The half-life of Hyaluronic Acid in the cartilage is approximately 2-3 weeks* Hyaluronic Acid also acts as the backbone for the assembly of other glycosaminoglycans.*
Glucosamine sulfate is a biological building block in cartilage tissue that is essential for joint health. Chondroitin sulfate is a glycosaminoglycan that helps promote a hydrated cartilage matrix so its compressive properties can handle the impact of an active lifestyle. The age-related decline of chondroitin sulfate in cartilage may be one of the contributing causes of osteoarthritis.*
