BioCell Collagen®, a patented dietary supplement ingredient composed of a unique matrix of hydrolyzed collagen type II peptides, chondroitin sulfate. Collagen is the essential glue-like substance in our connective tissues that provides the structural framework of healthy skin, joints, tendons, and ligaments. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the hydrating sponge-like substance in our extracellular matrix that provides fluid lubrication to our joints and suppleness to our skin. As we age, we experience the loss of collagen and HA, which results in the deterioration of our connective tissues. Taking a daily supplement of BioCell Collagen® helps to counteract these effects.
BioCell Collagen is used for joint pain, rheumatoid arthritis and skin health and appearance. Collagen is a protein that makes up about 25% of the protein in the human body. There are 14 different types of collagen with Type II being the most predominant. It is important to the structural integrity of connective tissue located throughout most of the body, especially bone, cartilage, tendons and ligaments.
