Here at InterHealth we work hard to support joint health. Our work has lead to the development of the natural supplement UC-II®.
What is UC-II®?
Derived from chicken sternum cartilage, UC-II is a collagen with undenatured type II collagen that supports joint comfort, flexibility and mobility.
How is UC-II® different from other supplements?
UC-II® is manufactured in a GMP-certified facility from chicken sternum cartilage using a patented, low-temperature manufacturing process that ensures a particular level of undenatured type II collagen
New UC-II® Research:
InterHealth director of Research and Development, Zainulabedin M. Saiyed, PhD, FACN recently presented new research findings about UC-II® joint health at the 2015 Scripps Natural Supplement Conference. The presentation showed results from two separate identical, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies in people with osteoarthritis, which has been known to cause stiffness and discomfort in hip, knee, and thumb joints.
The 186 subjects in the study were given either 40 mg of UC-II®, 1500 mg glucosamine hydrochloride with 1200 mg chondroitin sulfate, or a placebo everyday for 180 days. The endpoint was defined by the change in WOMAC score compared to the placebo group. WOMAC (the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Arthritis Index) is a widely used, proprietary set of standardized questionnaires used by health professionals to evaluate the condition of patients with osteoarthritis.
The study showed impressive results! At the conclusion of the study, the data showed a significant reduction in overall WOMAC scores for the UC-II® group compared to the placebo. This means that people in the study taking UC-II® reported significant reductions in pain, stiffness, and function!This is great news for anyone looking to increase joint comfort! If this is you, we highly recommend giving this incredible supplement a try. You’ll be glad you did! Through ongoing clinical research, InterHealth strives to provide superior ingredients to manufacturers and consumers. Learn more about UC-II® and all of our other great products here. Read More
