Research has shown that in animals with arthritis and joint disorders, the immune system acts and attacks exposed Collagen.
With OA, collagen fibers that are damaged fill the joint space in synovial fluid triggering your dog’s immune system to view these fibers as a hostile attack, causing the painful inflammatory cascade responsible for your dog’s symptoms.
Type II Collagen retrains your dog’s immune response.
As a result, clinical researchers started conducting experiments to determine how they could inhibit or interfere with Collagen’s immune reactivity.
They discovered that a component within chicken soup facilitated anti-inflammatory effects to the discovery that, after consumption, sites of joint inflammation were protected from immune attacks.
Researchers determined that Type II chicken collagen favorably modulated immune function and induced tolerance to exposed Collagen with further investigation.
