UC-II UC-II

Now Foods UC-II® is a dietary supplement which contains collagen type II UC-II® and seaweed minerals Aquamin® TG.

UC-II® ‒ undenatured collagen type II. It shows effectiveness in very low doses of 40 mg per day, compared to the doses of classic collagen hydrolysate, which are even up to 10 g. The molecules of this collagen are not distorted by the impact of high temperatures, so they retain maximum functionality. Collagen type II occurs mainly in cartilage.

Aquamin® TG ‒ a complex of mineral nutrients derived from seaweed. It partially complements the nutritional deficiencies, improving the functioning of the body system and increasing the amount of building material for bones.

Different types of collagen
There are up to 12 types of collagen. Different types are components of various tissues; one collagen type in cartilage, another in intertissue membranes, scar tissues, endothelium and in many other tissues.

The type II, which is contained in this supplement, has the greatest importance for the health of joint cartilage.

Collagen functions in the body system
The main function of this protein is to provide tissue elasticity. This applies not only to joints and bones, but also to skin and its derivatives, blood vessels and every organ in the body system.

Addition of minerals
Adequate supply of minerals, especially calcium, is of crucial importance in maintaining the health of bones and joints. It is not possible to maintain the proper skeletal structure, if we do not have access to adequate quantities of building materials that can make up losses.

Scientifically proven efficacy
In the clinical study conducted on people, the researchers found that already one capsule per day, containing 40 mg of UC-II® helps to improve joints condition, by maintaining their proper function and flexibility.

With the scientifically proven supplement efficacy, we can be sure about the effectiveness and we don't have to worry about losing our money. To avoid experiments with our own health, it is worth trying a proven and effective product.

Influence on the immune system
It can be surprising for some people that collagen type II can affect the activity of the immune system. The supplementation may change the levels and degree of activity of T-lymphocytes and some interleukins, particularly IL-10 and IL-17.

The activity associated with the immune system is the cause of beneficial influence of this collagen type on autoimmune diseases that attack joints, e.g. rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

Convenience of use
Classic supplements containing hydrolyzed collagen require very high doses to notice any effect. The average dose of this collagen form is 10 g, or about 2–3 teaspoons of pure powder.

The effective dose of collagen in the form of UC-II is contained in a small, convenient capsule, whose consumption does not make any problem. This is by far more convenient form than swallowing large tablets or drinking water with tasteless powder.

Now Foods UC-II® is recommended for people complaining about joint pains and for those who want to support the health of the musculoskeletal system and protect themselves from potential ailments in the future.

Calcium

Information

Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Calcium deficiency disorders manifested in the construction of the bones (osteoporosis) and iron metabolism. The symptoms are: rickets, cramps and muscle tremor, osteoporosis.
Excess result
ing from an overdose of calcium supplements containing vitamin D3 for children and adults overdose of calcium (hypercalcemia). Symptoms of hypercalcemia are: lack of appetite, vomiting and constipation.
The dosage administered in various publications
are inconsistent: 800 - 1000 mg / 24 h (100 - 500 mg / 24h)

Collagen

Information

Collagen is a major component that builds connective tissue (tendons, ligaments cartilage, bone, and blood vessels) from the group of fibrous proteins (i.e. scleroprotein), representing a quarter of the content of protein in the body. It is composed of amino acids (glycine, hydroxylysine, hydroxyproline and proline). Distinguished are eight types of collagen located in different parts of the human body. The source of the acquisition is gelatin (a component of the connective tissue of animal origin). It occurs most frequently in the form of processed collagen hydrolyzate characterized by a high and a good absorbency of amino acids. Recommended in sports supplementation and physically active people, as well as during convalescence after injuries and certain diseases. Available as mono-preparation supplement or of multi-compound supplement (usually also containing chondroitin, hyaluronic acid, and ascorbic acid).
Dosage: 10-20 g per day.


 

Seaweed

Information

Seaweed - in everyday language referred to algae living in sea water (salt water), among them also can be mentioned algae growing in the Baltic Sea, of kelp family, bladderwrack (in Poland uder protection). The number of marine algae is determined to be more than 10 000. They are sources of nutrients (vitamins A, C and E), minerals (iodine, calcium) and fibre. Some species of algae provide polysaccharides (fucoidans), with the anticancer potential. In addition to the nutrients, they have the ability to regulate lipid profile, facilitating the functioning of the thyroid gland. They are components of nutrients, vitamins and vitamin-mineral supporting reduction of body fat supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl

Minerals

Information

Minerals are ashes remaining after burning the tissues of the body, constituting less than 4% by weight. They are divided into macro-nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, sulphur, calcium) and micronutrients (zinc, fluorine, iodine, manganese, copper, selenium, etc.) and ultra-elements (boron, cobalt, molybdenum, nickel, titanium, vanadium). Minerals (commonly found in the form of mineral salts) are the ingredients of bone, as well as compounds such as hemoglobin, thyroxine and enzymes. They maintain the level of electrolytes in the body. Determine the proper functioning of the nervous and muscular system. They come in the form of mono-preparation supplements or part of the various supplements (including mineralizing, vitamin and mineral), isotonic drinks, creatine stacks and no-boosters Available at the www.muscle-zone.pl
