Collagen JS provides patented BioCell Collagen®, offering a unique profile of compounds for optimal joint motility and comfort as well as healthy skin. This product contains BioCell Collagen II®, a patented, hydrolyzed and denatured low molecular weight type II collagen. This form of collagen is the most abundant form in the joint matrix. In addition to collagen, BioCell Collagen II provides the combined benefits of hyaluronic acid (HA), depolymerized low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate, glucosamine sulfate and amino acids including lysine, proline and hydroxyproline. The unique profile of compounds in BioCell Collagen II promote cartilage synthesis and enhance synovial fluid, supporting the composition, integrity and motility of joints. The components of collagen type II also support the elasticity and firmness of skin. Furthermore, HA attracts water, promoting hydration and moisture retention within the dermal matrix. Case reports have suggested that BioCell Collagen II may help rejuvenate skin and modulate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
