Collagen – Miracle cure for the joints? Vital3 vs iHerb’s Now Foods, UC-II, Undenatured Type II Collagen comparison – Review coming later
I recently read from a Finnish health magazine about the Vital 3 supplement, which is supposed to be a new miracle cure for the bad knees.
According to studies; Undenatured Type II Collagen helps with osteoarthritis of the knee better than glucosamine or chondroitin (source). So, maybe this stuff really works? Of course this got me interested, as I have tried many products to help relieve the knee pain.
Vital 3 isn’t the cheapest product, so I wanted to know if there is a cheaper alternative of it. I have used iHerb.com for many times with the supplement shopping, and there was one product that caught my eye; Now Foods, UC-II, Undenatured Type II Collagen
Which one should I get. Vital 3 or Now Foods, UC-II, Undenatured Type II Collagen?
Here’s my comparison between these two products:
“The dose of three drops of Vital 3 joint solution (which contains exactly 60 micrograms of undenatured, type 2 collagen)” – lähde
60 micrograms = 0.06 milligrams of undenatured, type 2 collagen.
Servings: Good for 45 days
Price: ($38,99 + shipping (Vital3.com))
Now Foods, UC-II, Undenatured Type II Collagen, 60 Vcaps:
“UC-II Standardized Chicken Cartilage† (Providing 10 mg Undenatured Type II Collagen)”
One servings has 10 milligrams of undenatured, type II collagen.
Servings: Good for 60 days
Price: $19.11 + shipping (Iherb)
Product by Now Foods has many times time UC-II compared the Vital 3 product and it’s about twice as cheap! Also the product last longer.
Of course I had to order the Now Foods, UC-II, Undenatured Type II Collagen for the test. My review of it coming later. I also have Cissus supplement coming early next week. I’m gonna keep some time between these two products to see if I notice any difference.
I also ordered Neocell, Super Collagen, Type 1 and 3 – 7 oz (198 g), which is one of the best selling products on iHerb. I’m gonna post a review of it too.
