FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Joint health is maintained by the Unicity Joint Mobility product in two distinct ways.
The type II collagen (UC-II) used in this product is in its original molecular structure and interacts with antibody molecules to deactivate collagen-specific T-cells. When T-cells are deactivated, the enzymes which typically cause joint breakdown are not released.
Studies show that UC-II is twice as effective as other supplements commonly used for joint health (glucosamine and chondroitin). Joint Mobility also contains vitamin D3 which performs a similar task of supporting healthy T-cells.
Joint Mobility also contains turmeric and boswellia extracts which also aid proper joint function. They assist in shutting down the T-cells that cause joint breakdown and then they aid in strengthening joints. Joint Mobility is included in Unicity's Genomeceutical(TM) line of products and helps maintain healthy gene expression for proper joint function.
Take two capsules daily with water.
UC-II – Epitopes in the Undenatured Collagen interact with antibody molecules, which deactivate the T cells that are collagen specific. This supplement has been shown to be highly effective in animal trials involving horses and dogs.
Turmeric Extract – Evidence shows that curcumin, coming from the Turmeric spice, has many properties. Curcumin has been found to be safe in multiple studies, even with high doses.
Boswellia Extract – Inflammation has been decreased through the use of this herb (also known as frankincense).
The Boswellia herb is fairly new to the research field, and its studies show positive results.
Vitamin D3 – Vitamin D plays a significant role in the immune system. The vitamin D receptor is found in substantial concentrations in T cells.
The synovial or moveable joints in the skeleton system have a layer of cartilage providing a cushion between the bones meet. A reduced amount of friction is created by this cartilage layer allowing for easier movement of the joint.
A cushioning layer of cartilage is found between movable (synovial) joints in the skeletal system. Cartilage reduces friction and prevents bones from rubbing together.
Cartilage is a tough, resilient connective tissue which rebuilds itself continuously. Layers of connective tissue also surround the joint and hold it together. A fluid is secreted that keeps the pads soft and further reduces friction. However, the cartilage breaks down as a result of accumulated over-use of the joint which causes pain, inflammation, and loss of motion.
Cartilage is composed of proteoglycan molecules, which are a combination of protein and carbohydrate molecules. These proteoglycans are contained in a matrix of collagen fibers which trap water and help give flexibility, and resiliency to the cartilage providing resistance to compression.
The most important of the protein and carbohydrate molecules is glucosamine, an amino-sugar. High levels of glucosamine in cartilage-producing cells (chondrocytes) is essential for the production of sufficient amounts of proteoglycans.
Chondroitin molecules are also involved in proteoglycan production.
