Inflammatory conditions such as arthritis are proving to be an excellent area for complementary and natural support.
Back in 2000, the University of Nebraska noticed in a study that people with osteoarthritis, who consumed chicken soup, experienced a decrease in the mobilization of immune cells to the inflammatory sites. It turns out that the collagen from the chicken bones was responsible for this anti-inflammatory effect.
This led to researchers to begin working with what is known as un-denatured collagen, also known as UC-II. Regular collagen that is found in many hair, skin and nail products, is denatured, does not have the same 3-D structure, and does not provide the desensitization of the immune system that the un-denatured collagen does.
