BioCell Collagen II 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, influencing our skin’s moisture, suppleness, and elasticity. BioCell Collagen II can help replenish the body’s natural supply of these components, which in turn can support healthy skin and joint function. Chondroitin sulfate chondroitin has been well studied for its effects on joint health. In a double-blind trial consisting of 146 volunteers, chondroitin sulfate was administered daily for 6 months and changes in joint function were measured according to several clinical parameters. Significant improvements in joint health were noted after the first month and they were maintained for three months after the subjects stopped taking the chondroitin sulfate. In another double-blind study, 192 subjects took either chondroitin sulfate or placebo daily for one year. At the end of the trial, subjects who had taken chondroitin sulfate displayed better joint function and maintenance of healthy joint cartilage thickness than subjects placed on the placebo. The researchers reported that chondroitin clearly enhances the body’s ability to maintain normal joint structure and function.
