Type 2 Collagen

Helps support joint health.

  • Description

    Type 2 Collagen + hyaluronic acid is powered by UC-II®, a unique undenatured collagen that’s clinically proven to repair joint damage.

    • Absorbed whole in the gut and initiates cell-signalling cascades that use the body’s natural repair mechanisms
    • Stimulates chondrocytes to build new cartilage to repair joint damage
    • Studied to be effective in the treatment of arthritic type joint conditions and outperforms Glucosamine and Chondroitin
    • Just one capsule per day for fast effective pain relief and joint repair

    Innovite’s Type 2 Collagen is powered by a patented formula that features unique undenatured type II collagen plus 120mg of added hyaluronic acid for your joints. With just one capsule a day, Type 2 Collagen is proven more effective than other joint therapies and is supported by two clinical studies for safety and efficacy.
    While the undenatured collagen in TYPE 2 Collagen enhances the body’s natural repair process and slow destruction of cartilage, hyaluronic acid simultaneously works to reduce pain and provide lubrication for the joint.

    Free from gluten, wheat, dairy, eggs, fish, shellfish, nuts, peanuts, artificial colours and flavours.

    60 capsules.

    Innovite’s Type 2 Collagen features undenatured collagen that is made up of multiple polypeptide chains linked together. Unlike other collagen, tough undenatured collagen protein is not easily destroyed by the acids and proteases in our gut. Its main role is to initiate an immune response that results in a more rapid restoration of joints and assist in destruction of cartilage in our joints caused by immune overactivity.

    Chondrocytes and Natural Repair

    Everyday mechanical wear and tear can lead to microscopic damage of the knee resulting in the release of chemicals that cause pain with continued use of the joint. Our natural built in repair process helps reduce pain and inflammation in healthy individuals. A major participant in our natural repair process is the chondrocyte. Chondrocyte cells are responsible for producing collagen and other extracellular proteins such as the proteoglycans which make up the structural matrix of the knee joint which keeps the joint healthy.

    But for some, lack of mobility as a result of increased microscope damage as well as pain from degenerative conditions has outweighed the effects of our natural repair system.


    A special class of immune cells (T-regulator cells), respond to Type 2 Collagen and
    secrete specific cytokines which beneficially alter immune responses.

    An Immune Response for Enhanced Repair

    Type 2 Collagen is designed to remain intact while consumed, this allows the absorbed molecules to reach a specialized area of the small intestine called the Peyer’s patch. From here it is transported through the gut where an immune response is initiated.

    More Chondrocyte Activity

    Microscopic damage prompts chondrocytes to swing into action to clean up the joint by removing the damaged tissue and then replacing tissue with healthy material.

    • Once the cleanup process is down, chondrocytes shift into repair mode by laying down new structural material.
    • But, in order to make this switch, chondrocytes must first produce and then respond to the anti-inflammatory cytokines IL-4 & TGF-B. These anti-inflammatory cytokines appear to be the key drives that shift chondrocyte cell metabolism from clean up --> to repair.

    TYPE 2 Collagen activated T-regulators work to enhance this natural process by directly encouraging chondrocytes to produce more of the collagen needed for healthy joint tissue.

    Hyaluronic Acid for Joints

    Studies show that orally ingested hyaluronic acid can down-regulate cytokines that produce inflammation, leading to an overall decrease in inflammation and the cartilage destruction that results. Hyaluronic acid also helps produce short term benefits in patients with knee pain with symptoms of pain continuing to improve over 12 months.

The incredible musculoskeletal systems serves as the structure for our being. It supports us as we move our bodies. The skeletal system is the site of hematopoietic cell generation, which are immature cells that can develop into all types of blood cells, including red blood cells (which carry oxygen and removes carbon dioxide from the body), white blood cells (part of the immune system), and platelets (for blood clotting). Imagine all of those cells working hard and synergistically together within this system. Pretty amazing, don’t you think?
