    Olympian Labs Biocell Collagen 1500 mg 300 Capsules

    Olympian Labs Biocell Collagen

    Biocell Collagen is different from most collagens in that the molecular weight is low for easy and quick absorption to where its most needed as we age - including joints, skin, tendons, and ligaments.

    When it comes to ageing, we all want to know how to prevent it from happening. Many of us are on a quest to maintain our youthful appearance as well as keep our joints and bones mobile and ready to go. Biocell Collagen might just be the answer you are looking for.

    Clinical studies on the patented composition of Biocell Collagen showed over a 12-week period improved skin moisture by 72%, a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles by 13.2%, and a significant reduction of skin dryness/scaling by 76%. BioCell Collagen contains naturally occurring hydrolyzed collagen type II, chondroitin sulfate, and hyaluronic acid in a bioactive matrix form. Clinical studies also documented that Biocell Collagen improved joint discomfort and enhanced the physical activity of those with osteoarthritis.

    What Is Collagen?

    Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the body. It is necessary for the successful maintenance of healthy cartilage, tendons, ligament and skin.* As we age, we lose this necessary protein. This loss can lead to joint degeneration, synovial (joint) fluid loss and dramatic skin changes. To maintain the vitality of these tissues the body needs the correct nutritional "raw materials" to keep it going. BioCell Collagen, taken on an empty stomach, can help to provide these necessary materials.*

    More Active Joints and Younger-Looking Skin

    Feed Your Skin and Joints!

    What is BioCell Collagen?

    BioCell Collagen is a science based, clinically tested dietary ingredient that promotes active joints, youthful looking skin, and healthy connective tissues. Unlike other collagen and hyaluronic acid ingredients on the market, BioCell Collagen contains a patented composition of naturally occurring hydrolyzed collagen type II, chondroitin sulfate, and hyaluronic acid in a highly absorbable matrix form that has been the subject of numerous human clinical trials including safety, efficacy, and bioavailability. The BioCell Collagen® logo of authenticity is proudly displayed on the labels of finished products that contain BioCell Collagen®.  

     

    BioCell Collagen utilizes a patented Bio-Optimization™ process which ensures remarkablebioavailability as well as rapid absorption into the body. More than 20 clinical studies including five human clinical trials on BioCell Collagen support its effectiveness and safety in promoting joint health and skin beauty. The unique synergy of hydrolyzed collagen type 2 and low molecular weight (LMW) HA and chondroitin sulfate, offers multi-dimensional nutritional support for the health of connective tissues such as skin, joint, tendon and ligament.

    It is important to note that not all collagen ingredients are created equal. There are several collagen supplements available in the market that lack clinical evidence and that have a very different molecular makeup than BioCell Collagen. Collagen in its native or unhydrolyzed form has a large molecular structure making it difficult for the body to absorb and utilize. Furthermore, many other collagen supplements do not have the synergistic benefit of naturally occurring HA and chondroitin sulfate like BioCell Collagen does. BioCell Collagen undergoes a patented manufacturing process, which significantly reduces the molecular size to a specific range that allows for easy absorption, fast action, and effective results. Our unique composition has been granted patent protection and has undergone human clinical trials proving its efficacy. To ensure authenticity, look for the BioCell Collagen logo on the product label.

    More Active Joints

    BioCell Collagen has a comprehensive approach to joint health, one that not only targets cartilage, but the related tendons, ligaments, and synovial fluid. Glucosamine and chondroitin formulations have been used as the standard of care in joint health for more than two decades with limited success. The big question on the mind of health care practitioners today is what is next in joint health. BioCell Collagen offers significant advantages with its advanced, patented composition which mirrors human articular cartilage and provides bioavailable collagen type II, chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid for the comprehensive maintenance of healthy joint function. BioCell Collagen’s uniquely differentiated properties provide broader, more complete and effective nutritional support. Results from human clinical trials on 185 men and women who took 2000 mg daily showed BioCell Collagen safely improved joint comfort, mobility, and quality of life.  

    Joint Health Benefits:

    • Supports joint function by strengthening cartilage and joint structure
    • Helps promote joint lubrication by replenishing the synovial fluid
    • Promotes joint comfort and mobility
    • Helps rebuild cartilage
    • Protects tendon and ligaments during intense exercise
    • Promotes tendon and ligament connective tissue recovery following intense exercise  

    Innovative, comprehensive, and effective solution for joint health

    BioCell Collagen® offers a patented, comprehensive solution for healthy joints through multiple mechanisms of action.

    Clinically Proven in Randomized Double Blind Placebo Controlled Human Clinical Trials

    Multiple clinical trials over the past decade demonstrated the safety and efficacy of BioCell Collagen in promoting joint health by improving joint mobility and comfort.

    Patented Bio-Optimized manufacturing process for fast and effective absorption

    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.

    A cartilage mirror: replenishing structural components essential for healthy joints

    BioCell Collagen® provides the building blocks of macromolecular collagen, HA, and chondroitin sulfate essential for the health of cartilage, synovial fluid, and tendon and ligament connective tissue.

     

    Stimulation of cartilage chondrocytes by hydrolyzed collagen type II

    BioCell Collagen is not only bioavailable, it’s also biologically active. Residing exclusively in the cartilage, the chondrocytes are responsible for the biosynthesis of collagen type II, HA, and chondroitin sulfate. Hydrolyzed collagen type II contained in BioCell Collagen has been shown to stimulate these cells to synthesize new collagen type II, suggesting that BioCell Collagen may help in the regeneration of degraded cartilage.

    Highly bioavailable Hyaluronic Acid essential for joint lubrication

    Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is found in virtually all tissues of the body. In the joint, HA plays two important roles. First, it acts as a key structural molecule to form healthy, functional cartilage. Second, HA is a major component of synovial fluid, the lubricant found in our joints that allows smooth and easy movement. A study showed that consumption of BioCell Collagen (1500mg/day) led to a 60 times increase in HA levels at steady state.

    Increase in HA Levels

    Skin Beauty from Within

    BioCell Collagen® helps to counteract both natural and photoaging of the skin

    Clinically shown to:

    • Reduce wrinkles and fine lines
    • Reduce skin dryness and scaling 
    • Increase skin collagen type I 
    • Improve blood microcirculation in the skin 

    Clinically Tested

    During a 12-week study, women who took 1000 mg of BioCell Collagen daily said their skin was up to 76% less dry (more hydrated), and their fine lines and wrinkles had reduced by up to 13.2% when compared to baseline levels. Additionally both collagen levels and blood circulation were improved. The outcome of this study was published in Clinical Interventions in Aging.

    Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines

    Improvement of skin texture by increasing hydration and reducing skin scaling

    Maintenance of the integrity and healthy level of HA

    Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a key component of the skin’s extracellular matrix responsible for keeping the skin supple and hydrated. Studies show that BioCell Collagen helps maintain healthy levels of HA not only by elevating HA levels in the bloodstream but by inhibiting HA degradation.

    Increase in HA Levels



    The aging process leads to the loss of dermal collagen, which is the key factor of wrinkle generation. BioCell Collagen® antagonizes the loss of collagen by increasing collagen content in the dermis.

    Enhancement of blood microcirculation in the face

    Various cells reside in the skin including dermal fibroblasts which produce collagen, elastin, HA, and other ground substances that fill the skin layer. Improved blood microcirculation effectively nourishes the cells with oxygen and nutrients while removing wastes from the tissue.

    What is the difference between BioCell Collagen and other collagen supplements?

    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.

    BioCell Collagen advantages over collagen sourced from eggshell membrane or fish skin

    1. Type II collagen is a predominant type of collagen in the human articular cartilage. The collagen content of eggshell membrane is much smaller than BioCell Collagen and its collagen is type I.
    2. GAGs such as HA and chondroitin sulfate are essential for joint health and the skin beauty. Their content in eggshell membrane or in fish skin/scales is much lower than in BioCell Collagen.
    3. BioCell Collagen offers a comprehensive support for joint health and skin beauty via multiple mechanisms of action.
    4. A clinical trial on eggshell membrane collagen showed its limited effect in managing joint discomfort. BioCell Collagen demonstrated a full-range of clinical efficacy.

    Why Biocell Collagen?

    BioCell Collagen is a natural dietary supplement that provides nutritional support for connective tissue health, specifically articular joints, and the skin.* BioCell Collagen II is derived from 100% pure hormone-free chicken sternum collagen which is the richest natural source of these essential nutritional "building blocks". Not all Collagen Type II is created equal. Some formulations contain molecules that are too large to be absorbed. Hydrolyzed BioCell Collagen can deliver this necessary protein to the body's resource center and is guaranteed to contain standardized levels of Hydrolyzed Collagen Type II proteins, chondroitin sulfate, important for maintaining healthy joint cartilage, and Hyaluronic Acid.*

    Hyaluronic Acid (HA), together with collagen, promotes the health of soft connective tissue.* Hyaluronic Acid is present in the synovial fluid that surrounds joints, cartilage and the eye and skin tissue. Hyaluronic Acid helps the skin retain moisture and functions as a lubricant between the connective tissue of the skin.* Take, for example, a drying fruit. A plum starts out plump and moist. When you remove the water you get a prune. The same thing happens with loss of Hyaluronic Acid.

    BioCell Collagen also supports skin health, skin appearance and elasticity by helping the skin retain moisture.* BioCell Collagen II is completely water soluble and specially processed to ensure optimal absorption by the body.*

    NOT EFFECTIVE FOR ME
    Quality
    I was taking a much cheaper brand of this and within 3 days of starting the supplement my sciatica pain was diminished. After 30 days on it, I decided to try this brand thinking it would be as effective or better, wrong. More expensive is not always better. Within a couple of days my sciatica pain was back though I continued on the Olympian Labs brand for 20 days with continuous hurting. I stopped it and went back to my cheaper brand and boom...the pain was gone again. I tried to get a refund but they do not refund if the package has been opened or after 14 days. Won't buy Olympian Labs brand ever again nor will I ever buy from this company again. (I doubt this review gets posted but worth a try). Review by Tammy (Posted on 6/22/2017)
