Collagen is essential for the structure and function of many connective tissues which glue other tissues and organs together. As aging is closely associated with the loss of collagen and the deterioration of the connective tissue, supplementation of bioavailable hydrolyzed collagen helps to counteract the negative consequences. However, collagens are not created equal thanks to different sources and proprietary manufacturing processes. The following tables show science-based competitive advantages of BioCell Collagen clearly differentiating it from other collagen supplements.
BioCell Collagen is the only hydrolyzed collagen that provides collagen and also substantial amounts of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) such as hyaluronic acid (HA) and chondroitin sulfate, all in remarkably bioavailable forms. It is critical because both collagen and GAGs are required for healthy structure and function of connective tissues such as joints and skin dermis.
Competitive advantages over undenatured (unhydrolyzed) collagen
1.Type II collagen is a predominant type of collagen in articular cartilage. Hydrolyzed form is also effective in reducing UV damage in the skin (Tanaka et al, 2009, Biotechnol Biochem)
2.Essential components both for the joint and the skin. Chondroitin suflate has anti-inflammatory activity.
4.Average molecular weight. Patented hydolysis for BioCell Collagen®.
5.Oesser et al, 1999, J Nutr, 129:1891-1895.
6.Oesser et al, 2003, Cell Tissue Res, 311:393-399. Only hydrolyzed collagen stimulates type II collagen biosynthesis.
BioCell Collagen advantages over native/undenatured/unhydrolyzed collagen
Competitive advantages over other hydrolyzed collagen
1.Major type of collagen in the final products. Type II is the predominant type of articular cartilage.
2.Essential components both for joint and skin. HA for hydration and chondroitin sulfate for resistance and cushion.
3.Average molecular weight. Patented hydrolysis for BioCell Collagen ®
4.HA bioavailability study in human subjects, Judy, W, SIBR research.
