            I have arthritis and was having lots of pain in my knees. 4 yrs ago a Dr. recommended that I should take a combination of one UC11 and one fish-oil capsule every night at bedtime. I am 78yrs old and go up and down stairs daily. I rarely have pain in my joits now. I've told friends about it and they have had good results also. "Try it! Your joints will love you if you do.

                In my struggle with rheumatoid arthritis for the past 16 years, I've wanted to decrease my medication if possible. Although diet alterations have helped, UC-II has given me wonderful results! I have, in fact, been able to decrease the anti-inflammatory drug by 75%. I feel better and have less pain when I take UC-II regularly. This product is a real blessing!!

                    I had read about this and figured I would give it a try--I have arthritis in the spine and am in pain most of the time---I take glucosmine and all these other vitamins that are recommended but I could not believe the results that I have had with UC II. in 30-45 days I did see a difference. I have had many more good days than bad. I am able to workout much better at the gym and am truly grateful that I gave this product a try. take it for 60 days what had you got to lose.

                        My doctor and I have been stumped for years with what I called my "mystery pains". They were al over, never in the same place at the same time. They kept me from sleeping a full night. I tried several combinations of herbs and or supplements. My doctor mentioned UC ll 2 years ago and I thought she was nuts! Finally in desperation I ordered the product, within less tan 1 month I noticed a change, within 2 months I was sleeping through the night, no tossing and turning, no mystery pains!

                        Are you kidding? You live in Old Lyme, CT and you don't know what was causing your pains?

                        Great, concentrated dose of Collagen. While most supplements only provde 2mg, this one does 10. I great supplement to promote joint and cartilage health.

                        >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2012-01-07
                        If you look carefully, most standardized versions throughout the internet are indeed also 10mg and for a better price than Vitamin Shoppe. I checked because I may start taking this.

                        Thank you guys so much for clarifying that!
                        I have one more question: the VitaminShoppe brand says that it contains 10mg of “Undenatured Type II Collagen (from chicken sternum cartilage)”, but most other brands claim they contain 40mg of UC-II, which looks like 4x as much! However, I also noticed that SOME of those ‘40mg’ brands say it’s “40mg of Undenatured Chicken Cartilage, containing 25% UC-II” so in essence those particular brands only contain 10mg of the active ingredient UC-II (as 25% of 40mg = 10mg). But other brands simply say they contain 40mg of UC-II, without further explanation...
                        What is the deal with this discrepancy in labeling, and how much of the active ingredient UC-II IS actually in these brands ? Do some really contain 4 times as much UC-II, or are they all the same and the way they seem to use the terms "Undenatured Type II Collagen", "Chicken Sternum Cartilage" and "UC-II" is misleading the consumer ?
                        A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Apr 9, 2014
                        Best Answer: The products are equal in strength. I don't think the labeling is intended to be misleading. You see this on herbal extracts as well. Remember to take your UCII on an empty stomach with plenty of water. I do it in the middle of the night when I am up to the bathroom. Stomach acid will destroy it. So empty stomach, lots of water! Works great for over all aches and pains.

                        Are these capsules supposed to be dark YELLOW ?

                        Best Answer: yes, dark YELLOW
                        and this Vitamin Shoppe formula worked far better than Vitacost's version

                        This was recommended to me for my cat. Can it be given to cats?
                        Kathy M on Nov 9, 2013
                        Best Answer: This product is safe for dogs but I cannot find anything about cats. For dogs they give 1-10mg and this capsule is 10mg. I would open the capsule and sprinkle just the tiniest bit into the kitty's food, comparing your cat's weight to typical dog weights. If it's a very large cat then you could give more, but the 10mg dose for dogs would be for large dogs, keep that in mind. And let your vet know about it.
