Synergy of the active ingredients for effective Arthritis treatment
Aging is not only associated with appearance. At some point in life many people just do not feel the way they used to. Joints become swollen, sore or stiff. The symptoms of painful or damaged joint can be the first sign of Arthritis. Arthritis involves deterioration of the joint cartilage, the rubbery tissue at the ends of bones diminishing smooth movement and shock absorption.
BIOFAC Caviar Collagen contains a rich cocktail of natural ingredients for effective treatment of Arthritis, namely collagen type II, chondroitin sulfate and glycosaminoglycan. All these elements are naturally occurring in the joints. Beneficial effect of their oral administration has been shown by several animal and human studies.

Hyaluronic Acid molecule
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a disaccharide occurring naturally in body, wherein almost 50 % of the body’s HA is found in the extracellular matrix in the skin – a space between living skin cells.
The role of HA for skin appearance is vital, as it supports skin’s layers and structure by hydrating skin’s collagen. Young skin is smooth and elastic, and it contains large amounts of HA. Aging of the skin implies degradation of HA and collagen and leads to the loss of elasticity and smoothness of the skin, and appearance of wrinkles.
Collagen type II molecule
Collagen type II is a polypeptide. The chain of polypeptides is packed together forming long thin fibrils of similar structure. The bulk of the cartilage in joints consist of collagen fibrils, which reduce friction and keep joint youthful.
