Kólla is the Greek word for glue. And it’s the root word for collagen. So maybe that gives you an
idea of what collagen does – it’s a protein in your body that gives structure to your skin,
tendons, joint cartilage, organs, and bones. There are more than 20 different types of collagen in
the human body. But 80-90 percent of that collagen come from types I, II, and III. You’ll find
type I and III collagen in the skin, tendons, hair, ligaments, and bones. Type II is a major
component of your joint cartilage.

In the past few years collagen products have become extremely popular as beauty aids. You’ll
find collagen in skin care products, anti-wrinkle creams, and even hair products. And you’ll also
find it in joint health supplements like Novo Renew. So exactly why is collagen so popular?

Collagen Loss Starts Earlier Than You’d Think

The levels of collagen in your body start declining in your mid-20’s. Keep in mind what the
collagen proteins do, they give your skin, tendons, cartilage, bones, and even your organs,
structure and support. By the time you’re in your 70’s collagen is seriously breaking down. The
result is wrinkles, creases and droops – what we refer to as “the effects of aging.”

I hope you had an “aha” moment right there. When the collagen in your body starts breaking
down, you start looking older. So to slow aging down it makes sense to get more collagen into
your body through creams or supplements.

Where Does Collagen Come From?

Novo Renew uses UC-II® Type 2 Undenatured Collagen (also called natural or native as it is not
processed by high heat or chemicals), which has a registered trademark for its breakthrough
formula. UC-II comes from collagen in chicken sternum. However, other products may use
collagen taken from fish, cows or pigs.

UC-II collagen has several distinct benefits. Extensive research and clinical studies have shown
UC·II to be both safe and effective in supporting joint health and easing the discomfort
associated with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.1 And the manufacturing process
ensures the collagen is breaking down into smaller molecules, so it absorbs well into the
digestive system as it goes to work throughout your body strengthening your joint tissue and
