Today you’ll see the ingredient collagen everywhere — from cosmetics to face and body creams to, well, our own Novo Renew. Say “collagen” and it gets an instant reaction, especially from women. They love its glowy, skin smoothing properties. And it’s not just hype, or clever marketing. The word is out on how well collagen works and it’s based on people who love the results telling others.

What is Collagen?

Collagen is the most plentiful protein in your body. You’ll find collagen in your muscles, skin, blood, bones, cartilage, and ligaments. It promotes skin elasticity; adds structure to cells and tissues; helps hold your bones and muscles together; and provides structure to your joints and tendons.

Your body naturally produces collagen. Regrettably, that production slows as you age resulting in loss of skin elasticity (wrinkles and sagging skin) and stiffness to your joints.

The Inside Story

As your cartilage weakens as you age the result is stiff and achy joints. In a 2009 study, participants took a type II collagen supplement made from chicken necks for 90 days (Novo Renew uses UC II® Type 2 Undenatured Collagen, undenatured means it doesn’t break down the amino acids as a result of exposure to high heat during processing).

The results were impressive: osteoarthritis symptoms decreased by 40 percent, while the severity of symptoms dropped by 33 percent. Older studies showed reduction of swollen and tender joints in participants with severe rheumatoid arthritis.

Safe and Effective

UC-II collagen has several distinct benefits. Extensive research and clinical studies have shown Novo Renew’s UC-II® Type 2 Undenatured Collagen is both safe and effective in supporting joint health and easing the discomfort associated with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. And the manufacturing process ensures it absorbs into the digestive system as it goes to work throughout your body strengthening your joint tissue and cartilage.

When it comes to collagen, what’s obviously good for the outside is also good for what’s inside. Find out what all the fuss is about, get a good dose of collagen when you take Novo Renew.
