Collagen for joint health
BioCell Collagen not only promotes active and more flexible joints, but it can also lead to a reduction in joint pain. The first clinical trial on BioCell Collagen was performed on 89 subjects
. After 45 days of supplementation with 2 grams of the ingredient daily, 80 (or 89 percent) of the participants experienced pain relief—while only one subject taking a placebo reported relief.
Next, researchers turned their attention to BioCell Collagen’s effect on subjects with joint discomfort in a pilot study. Participants who supplemented for eight weeks found their physical difficulties reduced, as compared to those who took a placebo. After these encouraging results, researchers enrolled 80 participants in a clinical trial, which confirmed the pilot’s findings: “71 percent of the subjects who ingested BioCell Collagen (2 grams daily for 10 weeks) experienced a significant improvement of their mobility-restricting joint discomfort,” said Park, “whereas only 30 percent in the placebo group experienced a similar benefit.” This conclusive study was published in a prestigious scientific journal, the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
BioCell Collagen can be found as a stand-alone supplement, or combined with antioxidant or anti-inflammatory ingredients.
