FAQ of JointEase w/UC-IIŽ

(1) What is JointEase w/UC-IIŽ Gu Jiao Yuan?

A joint and bone health formula, featured patented UC-IIŽ (undenatured type II collagen), glucosamine HCL and choindrotin sulfate.

(2) What's UC-IIŽ

Derived from chicken sternum cartilage, UC-IIŽ consists of undenatured (native) type II collagen, a revolutionary new dietary ingredient that works with the immune system to promote healthy joints and increase joint mobility and flexibility (FDA-notified and published new dietary ingredient).* Supported by six human clinical studies, including research at Harvard University Medical School, UC-IIŽ is the only source of undenatured type II collagen available as a powdered, shelf stable dietary ingredient (four U.S. patents and international patents pending).

(3) What does JointEase w/UC-IIŽ do?

Improves joint mobility and flexibility

Promotes healthy joints

(4) How does JointEase w/UC-IIŽ work?

Type II collagen administered orally works with the immune system to promote healthy joints by a process called oral tolerization.

(5) How is JointEase w/UC-IIŽ different?

UC-IIŽ is made from chicken sternum cartilage using a patented, low-temperature manufacturing process that ensures the biological activity of the type II collagen; activity that has been validated by a very specific and highly sensitive antibody analysis called an "ELISA" test. Other forms of type II collagen sold as dietary supplements are denatured, or hydrolyzed. In other words, their molecular configuration has been changed, either through chemical or high-temperature processing, rendering them inactive. According to Dr. David E. Trentham, Harvard University researcher and leading expert on type II collagen, "type II collagen must be in its native (undenatured) form to be effective."

(6) How much JointEase w/UC-IIŽ should I take?

The recommended adult daily dosage is two capsules twice taken with water before meals on an empty stomach.

FDA-notified and published new dietary ingredient

Active Ingredients

Glucosamine Sulfate is an amino sugar naturally produced by the body from glucose and sulfur. Sulfur is essential to healthy joints. It is a major building and rebuilding component of cartilage, tendons and ligaments. Both Glucosamine and Chondroitin are natural components of cartilage and connective tissues. Replacing lost or low production of glucosamine can help maintain and in most cases, regenerate joint tissues. Many studies have shown dramatic regeneration of joint tissues and improved production of joint fluids with the use of glucosamine sulfate.


Type II collagen, a triple helix molecule, is the principal structural protein in cartilage that is responsible for its tensile strength and toughness. Sometimes the body's immune system mistakes type II collagen in human joints as a foreign invader and sends antibodies to attach and destroy the collagen, which can adversely affect joint mobility and flexibility. This condition is coined as autoimmune diseases. Recent studies at Harvard University Medical School have shown that small doses of Undenatured type-II Collagen (UC-IIŽ) derived from chicken cartilage works with the human immune system to prevent the body from attacking its joints.

Supported by the following six human clinical studies, inluding research at Harvard University.

Study 1: In the first Harvard study, six of ten patients taking undenatured type II collagen for three months showed substantial improvement, while one patient recovered completely. In addition, there were no side effects.

Trentham, et al., "Effects of Oral Administration of Type II collagen on Rheumatoid Arthritis", Science, 261:1727-1730, 1993

Study 2: In a 90-day, double-blind, placebo-controlled, follow-up study on patients with severe rheumatoid arthritis, 28 patients taking undenatured type II collagen showed significant improvement compared to he placebo group, while four patients recovered completely.

Trentham, et al., "Effects of Oral Administration of type-II collagen on Rheumatoid Arthritis", Science, 261:1720-1730, 1993

Study 3: A third Harvard study showed that after three months of treatment with undenatured type II collagen, eight of ten patients with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis had a reduction in both swollen and tender joints.

Barnett, et al., "A Pilot trial of Oral Type II Collagen in the Treatment of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis", Arthritis & Rheumatism, 39:623-628, 1996

Study 4: A fourth Harvard study showed that, following treatment with undenatured type II collagen, 21 of 54 arthritis patients (39%) who met the cumulative Paulus criteria (morning stiffness, joint tenderness, joint swelling and erythrocyte sedimentation rate) demonstrated significant improvement, while only 11 of 57 patients (19%) taking a placebo showed improvement.

Study 5: Two studies out of Germany have reported similar results. In the first study, there was "a higher prevalence of responders in the type II collagen-treated groups: seven responders in the 10-mg type II collagen group and six in the 1-mg group, versus four in the placebo group. Furthermore, three patients in the 1 - mg group and one patient in the 1-mg group and no patients in the placebo group, had very good response.

Study 6: In the second German study, 1mg and 10 mg doses of undenatured type II collagen results in reduced collagen type II antibody titres, but only in those patients showing a clinical response. The study also showed that the 10 mg dose level was more effective than the 1 mg dose level.
