Being overweight can put added stress on our joints. Type II collagen has been shown to safely and effectively support joint comfort and flexibility and offers bariatric patients an excellent alternative to mega dose glucosamine-chondroitin formulas. However, several collagen products marketed to support joint comfort are formulated with denatured collagen. Denaturation occurs when collagen is exposed to heat or certain chemicals that alter the structure of proteins in the collagen.
Twinlab Bariatric Support Joint Dots deliver 10 mg of superior, undenatured type II collagen from 40 mg of UC-II for superior joint support in a tiny, chewable dot.

Twinlab's comprehensive new Bariatric Support line addresses the specific nutritional needs and challenges faced by bariatric surgery patients. Twinlab's Bariatric line acts as a nutritional safety net to help fill in nutrient gaps potentially left by reduced food intake and decreased absorption to support optimal health of these individuals. Due to the unique digestive challenges faced by bariatric surgery patients, many dietary supplement forms such as capsules and large tablets can be difficult for these individuals to absorb. This is especially true in the early stages of the recovery process, when patients are required to follow a liquid-only diet. Instead, many bariatric nutritionists typically recommend delivery systems that may be more easily digested or absorbed, such as liquids and chews.
