Type II Collagen Support
Posted on November 16 2017Your new favorite Type II Collagen support that has been here all along!
Collagen peptides. I can’t listen to a podcast, read a natural health blog, or go to a seminar without seeing advertisements for the latest and greatest bone broth and collagen powder. Yes, I completely understand the benefits of collagen. Amino acids create proteins, proteins make muscles, shiny hair, and healthy nails. I understand how collagen supplements increase collagen in the skin, hopefully prolonging signs of aging in the skin.
I admit I have fully jumped on board. I prepare my own bone broth from 100% local grass-fed grass-finished bones. I take my collagen peptides daily from the jar with the blue lid. I consume ligaments and tendons every chance I get. I’m not sure if I notice a difference, but science backs the benefits. Perhaps I will be radiant at eighty from starting this regime in my twenties!
Here is where I go the extra mile. Biotics Research Corporation has a product called Cytozyme- Trachea™. The trachea is commonly referred to as the windpipe. This large membrane is made of tough cartilage. Type II collagen is a fibrillar collagen found in cartilage, it is formed by a cross-link pattern of long thin fibrils around cells. This creates an extra thick strong cartilage. There are many benefits that come with type II collagen;
- Responsible for giving support to connective tissue.
- Used for the repair of injured tendons, ligaments, and deep tissue damage.
- Has naturally occurring chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronan acid. This has a positive influence on chondrocytes. This may prove helpful for those with arthritis based pains.
Typically, one would take ChondroSamine Plus® for joint pain; over a few months symptoms would improve and pain would slowly decrease. This is a lengthy process, as ligaments and tendons do not have blood vessels feeding them oxygen and healing nutrients throughout. With the addition of Ctyozyme- Trachea™ discomfort decreases and joints seem to be on the mend at a rapid pace. This we think is caused by the high concentration of collagen fibers in the neonatal glandular tissues.
Cytozyme-Trachea™ may also be useful for immune support, herpes, allergies, and free radical pathology. There seems to be an immunomodulatory component in the neonatal trachea. Scientists are still in the depths of researching which exact roll this plays within the body. Joe Buishas has a handy Tuesday Minute video highlighting Ctyozyme-Trachea™.
Here are a few cases for utilizing Cytozyme-Trachea™:
- Arthritis; Osteo, Rheumatiod, Juvenile, and Psoriatic
- Bone and Bone Marrow Health
- Cartilage Injuries; Connective Tissue Damage and Repair
- Dry Sockets; Painful Inflammation after Dental Extraction
- Free Radical Pathology; Unstable Molecules/Atoms w/ Unpaired Electrons
- Impetigo; Inflammatory Skin Disorder
- Leukemia; Neoplastic Bone Marrow Disease w/ WBC Proliferation
- Ligament Support; Sprain, Strain, Tear, and General wear and tear from aging
- Lupus Erythematosus, Systemic (SLE); Connective Tissue, Autoimmune
- Pneumonia; Acute or Chronic, Viral or Bacterial Lung Inflammation
- Skin; Specifically Scarring of fresh wounds
- Tuberculosis; Infectious Bacterial Disease-Causing Lung Lesions
- Vascular Inflammation Support; Connective Tissues
I hope this helps to introduce a new Biotics Research product into your practice. There are countless articles in medical journals regarding bovine trachea uses. Next time you are getting a little help from Dr. Google, try this one in the search bar!
