Hyaluronic acid and Collagen are vital structural components of skin that decline as we age, and are partly responsible for the skin's moisture, suppleness and elasticity. BioCell Collagen II® contains key components that can help replenish the body's natural supply of these components, which in turn can support healthy skin and joint function. 60 capsules

Enhanced Absorption with BioCell Collagen®
Enhanced absorption means faster results. Studies have shown that BioCell Collagen® is so rapidly absorbed, that even after just 1 dose, test subjects levels of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) gradually and significantly increased in the blood. In the same study, subjects taking BioCell Collagen® for 28 days maintained elevated blood levels of Hyaluronic Acid, as compared to their initial levels.
The components of Best Hyaluronic Acid with Chondroitin Sulfate are naturally found in human cartilage, and they have all been the topics of intense research in joint health over the past few decades. Collagen and hyaluronic acid are also vital structural components of skin that decline as we age, influencing our skin’s moisture, suppleness, and elasticity. BioCell Collagen® can help replenish the body’s natural supply of these components, which in turn can support healthy skin and joint function.
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot study exploring the safety and effectiveness of BioCell Collagen® towards joint health, 16 subjects were enrolled to receive 2 grams of BioCell or placebo daily for 8 weeks. The subjects who were administered BioCell demonstrated significantly greater joint comfort, mobility, and quality of life over time, compared with placebo.
Helps Maintain Youthful Skin
HA plays an important role in maintaining the health and natural beauty of the skin. The compound enhances the structure and volume of the skin by promoting healthy connective tissues that interact with the skin. HA plays a direct role in the attraction and maintenance of moisture in the skin; as HA concentrations naturally decrease in the elderly, it may become difficult for the skin to retain moisture, leaving the skin dry and uncomfortable.
Researchers have performed comparative measurements of hyaluronic acid levels in the skin of young and elderly individuals. Results indicate that there is a normal and progressive reduction in the number of hyaluronic acid granules in human skin with age—so much of a reduction, in fact, that a complete absence of these granules was seen in healthy individuals 60 years or older. These variations in HA levels with age may account for the decreased turgidity, wrinkled appearance, and altered elasticity of skin tissue.
Recent in-vitro laboratory studies are now indicating that HA not only provides moisture retention and structural support to the skin, but also promotes cellular vitality. The results of one such study indicate that HA given to human epidermal (skin) cells induces cell signaling that promotes natural cell repair and tissue renewal.
BioCell Collagen® achieved GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) self-affirmation, meaning that a consensus on safety was reached by an independent expert panel of qualified scientists who carried out an extensive review of all available scientific safety data on this ingredient.
