KollaGen II-xs™ Collagen Type II – This ingredient is effectively dosed at 2 grams, one of the biggest doses you will find. Collagen is a component of joint cartilage that, when used as a supplement, can ease the pain, reduce inflammation and improve joint mobility(4) during and after your workouts.
L-Proline – This is a non-essential amino acid that’s a component of collagen and therefore plays an important role in joint health and function.(5)
Hyaluronic Acid – Joint Defender utilizes an effective dose of this ingredient which is a component of the synovial fluid that surrounds and lubricates the joints. This is common in skin care products when it should be more common in joint health products.(6)
