|What Is It?
This product contains BioCell Collagen II, a patented,
hydrolyzed and denatured low molecular weight type II
collagen. This form of collagen is the most abundant form
in the joint matrix. In addition to collagen, BioCell Collagen
II provides the combined benefits of hyaluronic acid (HA),
depolymerized low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate,
glucosamine sulfate and amino acids including lysine,
proline and hydroxyproline.*
Uses For Collagen JS
Supports Joint Health: The unique profile of compounds
in BioCell Collagen II promote cartilage synthesis and
enhance synovial fluid, supporting the composition,
integrity and motility of joints. In a double blind placebo
controlled study involving 16 individuals supplementing
with BioCell Collagen II for 8 weeks, results indicate
statistically significant support for joint function and
comfort. In a peak absorption study, serum levels of HA
increased gradually and with statistical significance after
BioCell Collagen II supplementation, emphasizing
the potential for this compound to provide important
connective tissue support.*
Promotes Skin Health: The components of collagen type
II also support the elasticity and firmness of skin.
Furthermore, HA attracts water, promoting hydration and
moisture retention within the dermal matrix. Case reports
have suggested that BioCell Collagen II may help
rejuvenate skin and modulate the appearance of fine lines
