New research has revealed that something as natural collagen extracted from chicken sternum can stop the immune attack of rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
What makes this research so interesting is that it is the first time that a natural nutrient has been successful in reversing the effect of an auto immune disease like RA.
In the past, glucosamine, chondroitin and normal collagen have been successful in some cases of osteoarthritis (OA) which is a wear and tear problem – but not with RA which is an autoimmune disease.
This extract of chicken sternum is known as ‘undenatured type ll collagen’ which is totally different to normal collagen. I will explain this difference further down.
If you are a sufferer of OA or RA you will know that there is very little on the market to help. Pain killers and NSAIDS may help mask the symptoms but they do nothing to get to the root cause of the problem.
This is where undenatured type ll collagen can make a difference – it helps dampen down the immune response naturally and the attack on your joints.
Also, another rather surprising outcome of this research is that it revealed that osteoarthritis can, in some cases, be classified as an autoimmune disease like RA. This is why glucosamine, chondroitin and normal collagen don’t always work with OA. They only seem to work when the OA is caused by wear and tear, not an immune response.
So if you are suffering from OA and have not been helped by glucosamine, chondroitin or normal collagen, then undenatured type ll collagen may be the answer for you.
In fact, in the research, undenatured collagen was found to be three times more effective than glucosamine, chondroitin and normal collagen.
The difference between normal collagen and undenatured type ll collagen
The normal collagen used in supplements that have been on the market for some time have a different structure to undenatured type ll collagen. The reason for this is that its basic structure (as found in nature) is destroyed by heat generated in the production process.
It basically becomes denatured.
Undenatured type ll collagen is different in that its basic structure is not destroyed during production. This is because it is protected by a specific, patented production process that does not generate heat.
By maintaining its natural structure, undenatured type ll collagen is able to stop the immune attack of OA and RA. This is because your body’s immune system builds up a natural tolerance to it. Just how this works is explained in the full report which I have prepared below.
Also, on account of the way that undenatured type ll collagen works on the immune system, you need only take 2 small capsules per day. This compares favourably with the large amount of capsules of glucosamine and normal collagen that you need to take.
