CartiShield: Collagen Plus Aquamin®
Works with the immune system to help preserve joints and ease arthritic pain
Cartishield: Collagen Plus Aquamin® - Lubricates joints, eases arthritic pain and reduces inflammation
Cartishield combines powerful anti-inflammatory ingredients, including UC-II®, a patented undenatured (not processed by high heat or chemicals) type II chicken collagen, and Aquamin®- a natural, seaweed-derived compound rich in magnesium, calcium, zinc, iron, selenium, and 71 other trace minerals. It works with the immune system to block systemic t-cell attacks on frayed collagen fibres in worn joint cartilage (which cause pain), and studies have shown it may help ease osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. It may also help reduce joint inflammation, swelling, pain, and stiffness; promote cartilage remodelling, and support improved joint mobility, flexibility and comfort.
A double-blind, placebo-controlled study found that UC-II decreased joint discomfort in patient scores by 40% in only 90 days!
