Question:

What is BioCell Collagen made from?

Answer:

 
BioCell Collagen is made from pure dietary chicken sternal cartilage that is free from hormones and antibiotics. Chicken sternal cartilage closely mirrors the composition of human cartilage rich in type II collagen, chondroitin sulfate, and hyaluronic acid. Cartilage is a clean and desirable source since it's free from blood vessels, lymphatics, and nerves that are known to carry diseases and impurities. Therefore extracting exclusively from cartilage eliminates the risk of potential contamination. We use a patented manufacturing procedure that subjects the chicken sternal cartilage through various processes, including filtration, purification, concentration, hydrolysis, and sterilization to ensure consistent quality and safety.
The majority of collagen ingredients in the market are derived from the entire carcasses of animals (e.g., cow, pig, and marine). These materials are usually more than 90% protein and labeled as Collagen Peptides, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Collagen Hydrolysate, Collagen Type I & III, or Gelatin (also a form of hydrolyzed collagen).
The branded dietary ingredient BioCell Collagen® is a hydrolyzed chicken sternal cartilage extract composed of naturally-occurring hydrolyzed collagen type II peptides, chondroitin sulfate, hyaluronic acid. BioCell Collagen is self-affirmed GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe), is non-GMO and free of gluten, soy, shellfish, fish, egg, milk, peanuts, and sugar. BioCell Collagen is only made in the USA and Germany.

Question:

What are the critical nutritional elements found in BioCell Collagen?

Answer:

BioCell Collagen® is a 100% pure hydrolyzed chicken sternal cartilage extract dietary ingredient. Independent laboratory analysis shows that BioCell Collagen is composed of ≥60 % Hydrolyzed Collagen Type II (calculated as Total Protein), ≥20% Chondroitin Sulfate, and ≥10% Hyaluronic Acid. The previously-mentioned analyte percentages do not mathematically add up to 100% since these naturally-occurring molecules in the chicken cartilage may naturally vary as indicated with a greater than equal to sign (≥) before each analyte.
Collagen is the most abundant protein found in joint cartilage and the dermis of the skin. It provides the structural framework of your connective tissues to keep your skin firm and resilient and your joints active and fluid. Chondroitin sulfate is a naturally occurring element of joint cartilage that gives cartilage it's incredible shock-absorbing properties. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a molecule that helps provide hydration for your skin, lubrication for your joints, and is the gel-like substance that holds your cells together.
BioCell Collagen utilizes a patented Bio-Optimization™ process, which ensures remarkable bioavailability as well as rapid absorption into the body through oral ingestion. BioCell Collagen is non-GMO and free of gluten, soy, shellfish, fish, egg, milk, peanuts, and sugar.

Question:

Question:

Is BioCell Collagen similar to glucosamine?

Answer:

 
No, glucosamine offers a partial approach to joint health. In contrast, BioCell Collagen is a multi-dimensional ingredient that supports both joint and skin health. BioCell Collagen® is a clinically studied dietary ingredient composed of naturally-occurring hydrolyzed collagen type II peptides, chondroitin sulfate, hyaluronic acid. BioCell's unique matrix is not a blend of individual ingredients. The synergy of biomolecules found in BioCell Collagen ®'s unique matrix offers multi-dimensional nutritional support for the health of connective tissues of the skin, joint, tendon, and ligament.

Question:

Does collagen naturally exist in plants?

Answer:

No, collagens are the most abundant proteins found in connective tissues of human and animal species. 

Question:

Does BioCell Collagen provide collagens types I, II & III?

Answer:

Collagen is the most predominant protein in the body. A number of different types of collagen have been discovered among which type I/III and type II are the major types for the skin dermis and for the articular cartilage, respectively. Research showed that hydrolyzed collagen type II contained in BioCell Collagen stimulated the biosynthesis of collagen type II from the chondrocytes and that daily ingestion of BioCell Collagen increased the collagen content in the facial skin. This suggests that BioCell Collagen can increase all of the major types of collagen (I, II, and III) found in the joint, skin and other connective tissues.

Question:

 Is it true, that collagen type 2 should not be combined with collagen type I&3, or they should be taken at least an hour apart from each other?

Answer:

No. There is no scientific evidence of incompatibility between collagen type 2 and 1&3 when taken together. The notion that if taken together, the two proteins will bind and form a complete protein and the body will not recognize it as collagen is misleading marketing rhetoric. Many collagen supplements on the market lack human clinical studies, do not contain efficacious ingredient quantities, or make false claims. .

Question:

Is all collagen the same, the only differentiator being whether it’s Type I, II, III, IV, etc.?

Answer:

No, not all collagen is the same or equivalent. The collagen type, source, molecular size, composition, and manufacturing process differentiate the various dietary supplement collagen products in their indications and efficacy. BioCell Technology, the supplier of BioCell Collagen, has invested in almost two decades of clinical trials and research and development activities. BioCell Technology pioneered the applications of hydrolyzed collagen type II, chondroitin sulfate, and hyaluronic acid matrix compositions and was awarded several patents for its invention.
