BioCell Collagen is a science based, clinically tested dietary ingredient that promotes active joints, youthful looking skin, and healthy connective tissues.
The active ingredient, BioCell Collagen®, helps maintain joint shock absorption and cushioning. And it helps maintain youthful skin by enhancing the structure and volume of the skin by promoting connective tissues.* Hyaluronic Acid is a type of building block called a glycosaminoglycan, and it plays an important role in supporting the structural strength of connective tissue and cartilage. Chondroitin sulfate is a chemical in cartilage around joints in the body. Doctor’s Best uses chondroitin sulfate with a purity of 90 percent or greater. Type II collagen is the collagen that makes up moveable joints. Studies have shown that hydrolyzed collagen provides a substantial advantage in bioavailability over non-hydrolyzed collagen, thereby having the potential to enhance healthy joint structure more efficiently. How does it work? Components of BioCell Collagen® (hyaluroinic acid, chondroitin sulfate, and collagen type II) can enhance the normal production of proteoglycans in the joint matrix, thereby enhancing healthy joint structure and helping to maintain joint shock absorption and cushioning. Hyaluronic Acid is a type of building block called a glycosaminoglycan, and it plays an important role in supporting the structural strength of connective tissue and cartilage. Healthy connective tissue and cartilage maintenance is fundamental in normal skin and joint function. Hyaluronic Acid is highly concentrated in synovial fluid, where it serves to enhance joint lubrication and the elastic structural and functional characteristics of the joint. Chondroitin sulfate and the other glycosaminoglycans strongly attract water due to the negative charges of their sulfate groups. These negative charges also repel each other, creating spaces between glycosaminoglycan side chains where water can enter. This combination of solid and liquid gives cartilage a compressible quality that allows it to function as a shock absorber for joints. Why should I take Best Hyaluronic Acid with Chondroitin Sulfate? As a part of normal physiology, the tensile properties of articular cartilage begin to decline after about age 30. Researchers agree the major visible signs of aging in the skin, joints and eyes are a result of progressive collagen and hyaluronic acid degradation in our tissues. To help, Doctor’s Best uses BioCell Collagen® is a science based, clinically tested dietary ingredient that promotes active joints, youthful looking skin, and healthy connective tissues. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
