JOINTACE COLLAGEN | 30 Tablets
Maintaining an active lifestyle
Jointace Collagen has been developed by Vitabiotics nutritional experts. Provides unique combinations of trace minerals, vitamins and nutrients ideal for those with an active life, in sport or in later life. Cartilage and bone health are important for long term wellbeing. Copper contributes to the maintenance of normal connective tissues and therefore can be beneficial to cartilage (as cartilage is made up of connective tissues). Vitamin D3, zinc and manganese all help to maintain normal bones. Vitamin D3 is provided in its Cholecalciferol form as naturally produced by the body on exposure to sunlight. Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones and cartilage.
Collagen (Type II)
Jointace Collagen provides a high-grade collagen which is hydrolysed to improve absorption and unlike some sources of collagen it contains high levels of the key amino acid hydroxylysine.
Collagen is a structural protein found in several connective tissues in the body including bones, cartilage, gums, skin, tendons and blood vessels.
Glucosamine and Chondroitin
Along with trace minerals, Jointace Collagen provides Glucosamine present in the preferred potassium form, and a high quality LMW (low molecular weight) form of Chondroitin, together with Ginger Root extract, well-known botanical ingredient.

Jointace Collagen FAQ
Q: Why have Jointace Collagen tablets been developed?
A: Jointace Collagen tablets have been scientifically developed to help safeguard your diet with specific nutrients which help to support normal cartilage and bone health which are important for long term wellbeing and maintaining an active lifestyle.
Q: Can Jointace Collagen be used alongside medications?
A: Jointace Collagen tablets are a food supplement and contain only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals. For specific advice on taking Jointace Collagen tablets with medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first. Diabetics and those using blood thinning medication (e.g. anticoagulants), should consult their doctor before using this product.
Q: How and when should Jointace Collagen be used?
A: Two tablets per day are recommended with or immediately after your main meal, with water or a cold drink, and not tea or coffee as this may cause the tablets to disintegrate too early. Jointace Collagen tablets should not be chewed. Taking the tablets with a large meal maximises the absorption of the nutrients and can reduce nausea, which is sometimes experienced if vitamin supplements are taken on an empty stomach.
Q: For how long should Jointace Collagen be used?
A: Results vary amongst individuals. There is no maximum length of time over which Jointace Collagen tablets may be used. A regular intake is recommended.
Q: Are Jointace Collagen tablets recommended with other Vitabiotics’ products?
A: The benefits of Jointace Collagen tablets may be enhanced by use alongside other topical (external use) products in the Jointace range, such as Jointace Patch and Gel. Jointace Collagen is also ideal in combination with a calcium supplement, such as Vitabiotics Osteocare, and/or additional fish oil, such as Vitabiotics Ultra range.
Q: Why has Calcium not been included in the formula?
A: Calcium is an essential mineral as it is needed for the maintenance of normal bones. However, it has not been included in the Jointace Collagen formula as it is not possible to include the right amount in one or two tablets as well as the other ingredients in Jointace Collagen. Rather than including a token amount of calcium, Jointace Collagen has been designed so that it can also be taken with Vitabiotics Osteocare tablets, chewable tablets or liquid.
Q: Is Jointace Collagen Gluten Free?
A: Yes, Jointace Collagen is free from gluten.
