Clinical Effects of a Novel Hops Extract & Undenatured Collagen (THIAA and UC-II)

Effects of a novel hops extract & undenatured collagen combination in a case series of subjects with chronic arthritic joint discomfort

According to the National Health Interview Survey, 30% of US adults have reported experiencing some type of joint pain during the preceding 30 days. Hops-derived tetrahydroiso-alpha acids (THIAA) –a mixture of co-, n-, and ad-congeners –have been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory properties in vitro and to reduce bone cartilage degradation in a mouse model of RA.

This case series provides preliminary evidence that nTHIAA and UC-II combination is safe and efficacious in management of participants with chronic joint pain and that improvement in most participants was experienced within 2 weeks.
