Dear Bk Tan,
Thank you for your email.  We appreciate your comments and are grateful to know you are having positive results with CellRenew. 
There are many different types of collagen, though 80 to 90 percent of the collagen in the body consists of Types 1, 2, and 3.  There purposes often overlap.  The two collagens I am most familiar with are Collagen Type 1 and Type 2.  Collagen Type 2 is what the product CellRenew contains and the one most beneficial for joint health. 
Collagen Type 1 tends to be more rigid than Type 2, better for bones.  Collagen Type 2 is found in soft tissues of the body, such as:  joint cartilage, skin, hair, nails, eyes, blood vessels, etc..., and is the most prevalent building block for joint cartilage.
Collagen Type 2 not only reduces pain and inflammation, but also aids normal repair and regeneration of cartilage, ligaments, and tendons.  An added benefit is Collagen Type 2 helps improve the elasticity for connective tissue, and cushioning between joints.  Collagen Type 2 from chicken sternum cartilage has been scientifically proven to help both rheumatoid and osteo-arthritis.  Not only do people experience the repair of damaged joint cartilage, they also notice less cartilage deterioration.  This is what you are hopefully experiencing, too.
Collagen Type 1 has not been shown to be effective on immune system forms of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis.  Collagen Type 2 is the only collagen, so far, to be clinically proven to help in these cases.  Collagen Type 2 contains the highest concentration of anti-inflammatory and joint supporting proteoglycans over other collagens.  Collagen Type 2 also contains a high percentage of chondroitin sulphate, which is a powerful anti-inflammatory proteoglycan that helps support joint tissue, and Hyaluronic Acid, which acts as a lubricant for the joints and other parts of the body.
I hope this helps you understand a little more.  Again, I appreciate you letting us know about your positive response to CellRenew.  Would you kindly give me permission to use your comments as a testimonial for other customers?
Thank you and best regards,
Tamara J. Gaisford
