Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen are vital structural components of skin that decline as we age, and are partly responsible for the skin’s moisture, suppleness and elasticity. Hyaluronic Acid and Chondroitin Sulfate are necessary for maintaining healthy joints. BioCell Collagen** contains key components that can help support healthy skin and joint function.*
How does it work?
Components of BioCell Collagen (hyaluroinic acid, chondroitin sulfate, and collagen type II) can enhance the normal production of proteoglycans in the joint matrix, thereby enhancing healthy joint structure and helping to maintain joint function. Hyaluronic Acid is a type of building block called a glycosaminoglycan, and it plays an important role in supporting the health of skin and nails. Hyaluronic Acid is highly concentrated in synovial fluid, where it serves to enhance joint lubrication and the elastic structural and functional characteristics of the joint. Chondroitin sulfate and the other glycosaminoglycans strongly attract water due to the negative charges of their sulfate groups. These negative charges also repel each other, creating spaces between glycosaminoglycan side chains where water can enter. This combination of solid and liquid gives joints a compressible quality that allows it to function in a healthy manner.
