Collagen Supplement Improves Knee Function

(Swanson Health Products) New research indicates a patented undenatured collagen supplement may improve joint mobility…
After 30 days, subjects taking UC-II had significant improvement in range of motion (knee extension) compared with those taking a placebo, and their range of motion showed continuing improvement after 60, 90 and 120 days. After 120 days, subjects in the UC-II group also were able to exercise longer on a treadmill before experiencing joint discomfort compared to baseline, in contrast with the placebo group, who showed no significant changes.
The study authors concluded that “supplementation with 40 mg of UC-II was well tolerated and led to improved knee joint extension in healthy subjects. UC-II also demonstrated the potential to lengthen the period of pain-free strenuous exertion and alleviate the joint pain that occasionally arises from such activities.”
