Collagen Type 11
A natural supplement that is normally extracted from the sternal cartilage of chickens and should not be confused with collagen sold in beauty shops which is neither the right kind nor properly purified.
When used as a supplement, it's a complete arthitis formula - although brands using organic, hormone-free chickens, free from additives and preservatives should be sought out.
Its active ingredients are glucosamine and chondroitin sulphates, both are well-known to help repair surrounding tissues of the joints.
