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. BioCell Collagen II contains key components that can help support healthy skin and joint function.
Doctor's Best Hyaluronic Acid with Chondroitin Sulfate featuring BioCell Collagen(R) supports healthy joint structure and youthful skin
BioCell Collagen(R) is a proven dietary ingredient that contains a patented composition of naturally occurring hydrolyzed collagen type II (60%), chondroitin sulfate (20%), and hyaluronic acid (10%) in a highly absorbable matrix
Clinically proven to help 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 connective tissue.
Chondroitin sulfate is a chemical in cartilage around joints in the body. Doctor's Best uses chondroitin sulfate with a purity of 90 percent or greater.
Type II collagen is the collagen that makes up moveable joints. Studies have shown that hydrolyzed collagen provides a substantial advantage in bioavailability over non-hydrolyzed collagen, thereby having the potential to enhance healthy joint structure more efficiently.
Components of BioCell Collagen(R) (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 connective tissue. Healthy connective tissue and cartilage maintenance is fundamental in normal skin and joint function. 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 cartilage a compressible quality that allows it to function in healthy joints.
As a part of normal physiology, the tensile properties of articular cartilage begin to decline after about age 30. Researchers agree the major visible signs of aging in the skin, joints and eyes are a result of progressive collagen and hyaluronic acid degradation in our tissues. To help, Doctor's Best uses BioCell Collagen(R) is a science based, clinically tested dietary ingredient that promotes youthful looking skin, and healthy joints.
Doctor's Best Hyaluronic Acid with Chondroitin Sulfate features BioCell Collagen(R) that is standardized to 20% Chondroitin Sulfate and 10% Hyaluronic Acid, in addition to approximately 60% Collagen Type II. BioCell Collagen(R) is sourced from the sternal cartilage of chickens that are raised without hormones or steroids present in the poultry feed.
