Boosting your skin and joint health is easy thanks to BioCell Collagen® and its unique synergistic ingredients that provide naturally occurring Hydrolyzed Collagen Type II peptides, Chondroitin sulfate and Hyaluronic Acid.
Clinical studies show that BioCell Collagen® can promote healthy joints, youthful-looking skin, and connective tissues.
By providing a unique matrix of individual ingredients, BioCell Collagen® is special because it allows for a comprehensive approach to joint health – improving cartilage and the related tendons, ligaments, and synovial fluid.
BioCell Collagen® also provides significant advantages compared to standard joint care supplements such as glucosamine and chondroitin formulations. Its unique composition mirrors human cartilage and offers comprehensive maintenance for healthy joint function.
In particular, BioCell Collagen® is clinically shown to:
1. Promote joint comfort and mobility
2. Enhance post-exercise recovery
3. Support skin and joint collagens (Type I, II and III)
4. Help stimulate cartilage renewal
5. Promote tendon and ligament connective tissue recovery following intense exercise
What The Clinical Studies Show
For Joint Health:
BioCell Collagen® has been clinically proven in a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial for joint health. Investigators tested the tolerability and efficacy of BioCell Collagen® supplements. Participants were divided into two groups and administered either 2g of BioCell Collagen® or a placebo for 70 days. When compared to the placebo, the BioCell group had a significant reduction in joint discomfort, around days 35 and 70. BioCell Collagen® was also well tolerated and effective, improving mobility and quality of life. The peer-reviewed study was published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry. 
In another randomised, double-blind clinical pilot trial, sixteen subjects were split into two groups, ingesting 1000mg of BioCell Collagen® twice daily (2g) or a placebo for eight weeks. When compared to the placebo group, the BioCell group showed a 40% average improvement. The study details were presented at the international conference of Experimental Biology, 2004, Washington, DC.
In one unpublished crossover double-blind BioCell collagen study, 89 subjects were given a 2g daily supplement of the BioCell ingredient versus placebo over three months. Out of the 89 participants who complained of various types of discomfort, 80 (89%) reported some improvement within 45 days of taking the BioCell supplement. In contrast, only one subject on the placebo improved.
The effects of BioCelll Collagen® on protecting connective tissue have also been observed, along with providing functional recovery from a weight training exercise in healthy adults. In the pilot study, 3g of BioCell Collagen® was supplemented daily for six weeks to enhance recovery following a weight training exercise. The results enhanced recovery and favourably impacted specific tendon and ligament connective tissue biomarkers. The study findings were published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (JISSN). 
6. For Youthful Skin:
Ingesting BioCell Collagen® has been clinically shown in a 12-week study to:
- Significantly reduce facial lines and wrinkles
- Reduce crow’s feet
- Improve skin elasticity
- Reduce skin dryness
- Increase skin collagen and hyaluronic acid
In the study, women who took 1000mg (1g) of BioCell Collagen daily had 76% less dryness/scaling, and their fine lines and wrinkles had reduced by 13.2% compared to baseline levels. Additionally, both collagen levels and microcirculation were significantly improved. 
Another study of one hundred and thirteen healthy females between the ages of 39 to 59 years found that taking 1g of BioCell Collagen® daily in two equally divided doses morning and evening for 12 weeks showed significantly reduced facial lines and wrinkles, increased skin elasticity and improved indications of a more youthful skin appearance considerably, along with decreased skin dryness and erythema.
Other Amazing Benefits of BioCell Collagen®
In addition, BioCell Collagen® has benefits for hair, eyes, skin, nails and even gums:
For skin and hair
Collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA) are essential for nourishing and hydrating the dermal layers of the scalp for healthy, lustrous hair.
Fingernails and toenails are made of the same building block as hair – keratin. BioCell Collagen® is rich in sulfur-containing amino acids that promote keratin production for growth of strong, beautiful nails. The nailbed is just as important as the actual nail when it comes to nail health. The nail bed comprises connective tissue made up of collagen and HA.
Our gums (gingiva) are made of similar building blocks of skin, including collagen, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid.
The vitreous humour is the transparent gelatinous tissue filling the eyeball behind the lens, and this is made up primarily of collagen type II and hyaluronic acid (HA).
