Things to Know Before You Buy Collagen Type II
Hydrolyzed VS Undenatured
Undenatured chicken sternal collagen type II is a native form of collagen purified from raw chicken sternum cartilage without changing its original large molecular weight 300 (kDa). Undenatured active sites are recognized in the small intestine and theorized to turn off the signal that causes autoimmune deficiency, which mistakenly tells the body to attack health cartilage and chondrocyte cells.
Hydrolyzed chicken sternum cartilage is imperative for 3 reasons. The animo acid protein and amino acid sugars needs to be hydrolyzed to a molecular weight in order to be bioavailable to the bloodstream. Innovative technology and high performance liquid chromatography method of testing shows the precise dalton weight at 20-25 (kDa), and hydrolyzing below 20(kDa) will destroy the efficacy of hyaluronic acid, chondroitin, and glucosamine (mucopolysaccharides).
Hydrolyzed Dalton Weight Illustration & Chart Comparison
Dalton (Da) an alternate name for the atomic mass unit. Kilodalton (kDa) is 1,000 daltons. A protein with a mass of 20 (kDa) will have a molecular weight of 20,000 grams per mole.
Caveat Emptor – Buyer Beware
Consumers! Be aware of the inferior (cheap) collagen type II products that are sold on the market today, which are sourced from “crushed chicken bone.”
Consumers! Be aware of the controlled dosage advertising! Controlled dosage is due to the fact the chicken sternum is in its raw and native state and way too large of a Dalton (molecular weight) to be assimilated through the epithelial cell tissues of the stomach lining into the bloodstream where cell and tissue repair takes place.
