Olympian Labs BioCell Collagen II - 300 Capsules
Olympian Labs BioCell Collagen II is a natural dietary supplement that provides nutritional support for connective tissue health, specifically articular joints, and the skin. Olympian Labs 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”.
What happens when we age? Read any magazine or watch any news or medical show and they'll say the usual...wrinkles, joint problems, arthritis, etc. Are these really synonymous with aging or can we avoid them? These signs of aging are mainly a result of a slowing down of collagen production. 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. Olympian Labs BioCell Collagen II, taken on an empty stomach, can provide these necessary materials.
Not all Collagen Type II is created equal. Some formulations contain molecules that are too large to be absorbed. Only hydrolyzed BioCell Collagen II 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, is essential for 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 and you getÉa prune. The same thing happens with loss of Hyaluronic Acid. It leads to skin, eye and joint problems associated mostly with advanced age.
Daily use of BioCell Collagen II, with its combination of Hydrolyzed Collagen Type II proteins, chondroitin sulfate and Hyaluronic Acid, may help with many connective tissue and common joint disorders, such as osteoarthritis, degenerative joint disease, joint defects, vascular disease and cartilage injuries. BioCell Collagen II 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 maximum absorption by the body.
