BioCell Collagen II
Best Hyaluronic Acid with Chondroitin Sulfate contains patented BioCell Collagen IIÒ BioCell Collagen IIÒ is sourced from chicken sternal cartilage and provides highly bioavailable, low molecular weight glycosaminoglycans (GAGs).
It is standardized to contain 20% Chondroitin Sulfate, 10% Hyaluronic Acid and 60% Collagen Type II.
BioCell Collagen IIÒ is hydrolyzed and denatured to low molecular weight compounds that increase the bioavailability and absorption of its components.
Undenatured products have a lower absorption rate due to their larger molecule size.
Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen are vital structural components of skin that decline as we age, and are responsible for the skin’s moisture, suppleness and elasticity.
BioCell Collagen IIÒ contains key components that can help support healthy skin and joint function.
Supports Healthy Joint Structure and Function.
Components of BioCell Collagen IIÒ including collagen type II, chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid (HA) can enhance proteoglycans in the joint matrix, thereby providing support for healthy joint function and maintaining joint shock absorption and cushioning.
Chondroitin has been well-studied for its effects on joint health.
In a 1996 controlled, double-blind trial published in the Journal of Rheumatology, 146 volunteers consumed chondroitin sulfate daily for 6 months. Changes in joint function were measured according to several clinical parameters and carefully analyzed. After the first month, significant improvements were noted and maintained for three months after the subjects stopped taking the chondroitin sulfate. In an earlier double-blind study subjects taking chondroitin sulfate had improvements in joint function after three months of use, as determined by both objective and subjective measurements.
In both studies, the benefits lasted for weeks after subjects stopped taking chondroitin sulfate.
In another controlled study, 192 subjects took chondroitin sulfate or a placebo daily for one year. At the end of the trial, chondroitin sulfate maintained healthy joint cartilage thickness, while those on placebo had decreased cartilage.
Improvements in joint function also occurred. The researchers reported that chondroitin exerted a clear chondroprotective effect.
