Pure Health Choice (PHC) BioCell Collagen with Hyaluronic Acid contains Hydrolyzed Collagen Type II, Hyaluronic Acid and Chondroitin Sulfate.
PHC Collagen provides nutrients that can be beneficial for maintaining cartilage, tendon and ligament connective tissue health. The bioavailable hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate may promote joint cushioning and lubrication. May also help renew cartilage by stimulating chondrocytes (cartilage producing cell).
Collagen is a long-chain amino acid and protein found in our bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin and cartilage. Essentially, it’s the building blocks that keep us in one piece! The body’s natural collagen production declines with age and many modern lifestyle factors leaving us vulnerable to achy joints, sore muscles, wrinkly skin and brittle bones. Overtime, the ability of our body to produce collagen drastically decreases. PHC Collagen with Hyaluronic Acid offers an innovative, comprehensive, and effective solution for joint health based on BioCell Collagen®.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is found in all bones, connecting tissue, joints, tendons and cartilage structures throughout the body because it can be useful for lowering pains and tenderness associated with degenerative joint diseases. It’s also found in another important part of our joints called the synovial membrane, which forms a coating over two articulating bones and produces synovial fluid. Synovial fluid is a “viscous fluid” that helps joints absorb shock, remain elastic and carry nutrients to cartilage.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) provides moisture-filled cushioning between cells and has been shown to hold on to more water than any other molecule in the body. HA is particularly important in the production and maintenance of collagen and cartilage.
Typically found in cartilage around joints in the body, Chondroitin Sulfate - a type of mucopolysaccharides called GAG (glycosaminoglycan) - is essential for the structure and function of the connective tissue. It provides cushion and resistance to external forces. Chondroitin sulfate may help reduce pain and improve joint function.
Multiple clinical trials over the past decade demonstrated the safety and efficacy of BioCell Collagen® in improving joint mobility and comfort.
BioCell Collagen® on subjective pain caused by various joint discomforts
This randomized, double-blind, and placebo-controlled trial enrolled 89 subjects who were experiencing pain caused by joint discomfort. They ingested 2 grams daily of BioCell Collagen for 45 days. Results of study: effective in 89% of subjects, who recorded experiencing improved joint comfort after taking BioCell Collagen. As compared to placebo, BioCell Collagen significantly reduced the joint discomfort as much as 40% at the end of the study.
How it's made: the patented hydrolysis process
BioCell Collagen® is produced by using a patented hydrolysis process which optimizes the molecular size of collagen, hyaluronic acid (HA), and chondroitin sulfate for fast and effective absorption. Some other collagen supplements are not hydrolyzed, resulting in a molecular size that is too large for the body to digest.
