The New Generation of Collagen
The truth behind the anti-aging supplement #EveryWoman is talking about
Numerous women explore collagen as a potential aid in preserving healthy joints and achieving radiant skin. However, does collagen truly hold the anti-aging prowess it professes, and is there a genuine distinction among the plethora of collagen products flooding the market? The abundance of conflicting information from supplement companies, social media, and prominent figures adds to the challenge of discerning what to trust. Continue reading to uncover why the majority of collagen supplements fall short of expectations. Additionally, explore an award-winning, multi-patented solution proven to redefine the aging process, supported by scientific evidence.
COLLAGEN: THE BASICS
Collagen, a crucial protein offering structural support to cells, is present throughout the human body, with a particular abundance in healthy skin, joints, and connective tissue. However, collagen production in the body begins to decline in one's 20s. In fact, there's an annual reduction of about 1% in collagen levels, resulting in nearly 30% less collagen at the age of 50 compared to one's 20s and almost a 50% decrease by the age of 70.
The primary internal factor contributing to visible signs of aging is the loss of collagen. As collagen breaks down, the intracellular matrix loses its firmness and structural support, resulting in the emergence of sagging skin and wrinkles. This process can also lead to issues such as joint discomfort, stress on tendons and ligaments, and impact various areas like eyes, nails, hair, gums, and even digestive health.
COLLAGEN INGREDIENTS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL
Collagen, as a nutritional ingredient, falls into various categories based on its type, source, and manufacturing methods. The commonly known varieties include:
TYPE I: Hydrolyzed — Obtained from porcine skin, bovine hide, eggshell membrane, or fish, this collagen type is often marketed as bone broth or collagen powder.
TYPE II: Undenatured, unhydrolyzed collagen — Primarily sourced from chickens.
TYPE III: Hydrolyzed — Typically derived from bovine sources.
Vegan collagen — This is an evolving scientific endeavor to meet consumer demands, involving the use of genetically modified yeast and bacteria.
It's crucial to note that as of the current publication, vegan collagen is not commercially available. Products labeled as such, but lacking collagen, typically utilize collagen-boosting ingredients like vitamin C to cater to consumer preferences.
If you've heard that ingestible collagen may not offer significant benefits, there's truth to it. In its natural state, collagen molecules are too large to be efficiently absorbed by the body and are treated as proteins in the digestive system.
Hydrolysis, a process that breaks down large collagen molecules for enhanced efficacy, is commonly used in supplements. However, the quality and effectiveness of the end product can vary widely based on the method of hydrolyzation and the type and source of collagen employed. Additionally, there exists a distinct category of collagen beyond the conventional types mentioned above.
LIQUID BIOCELL® IS A NEW GENERATION OF COLLAGEN
Liquid BioCell® stands out as an exceptional type II collagen, surpassing the common hydrolyzed bovine or marine collagen found in many formulations. This distinguished, award-winning single-source matrix is a naturally occurring blend, featuring highly absorbable collagen along with hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate. These components are present in concentrations that precisely replicate the composition of human articular cartilage. Clinically demonstrated, it not only provides notable joint benefits but also brings about significant improvements in skin health.*
Supported by the innovative Collagen/HA Matrix® Technology, this exclusive ingredient is sourced naturally from chicken sternal cartilage and undergoes hydrolysis using a patented Bio-Optimized™ manufacturing process. This process ensures the creation of micromolecules with an optimal size. The outcome is a naturally elevated bioavailability, a crucial factor determining the effectiveness of a supplement. Bioavailability directly influences how efficiently a substance enters the body's circulatory system. Mere ingestion of a nutrient is insufficient; it must be absorbed to yield benefits. Therefore, the bioavailability of a supplement is as, if not more, vital than what its nutrition label may assert.*
Q. How is the chicken sternal cartilage sourced?
Liquid BioCell employs a remarkably bioavailable liquid format of patented sternal cartilage, forming a matrix inclusive of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and chondroitin. Sourced from humanely treated chickens raised in GMO-free, antibiotic-free, and hormone-free environments on some of the world's most reputable and regulated farms in the US and Europe, this byproduct is derived responsibly. In alignment with our sustainability commitment, we utilize chicken byproducts from parts that would otherwise be discarded after the chickens are processed for their meat.
Q. Why are the HA and chondroitin sulfate in Liquid BioCell® important?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring compound present throughout the body, with its highest concentrations found in the eyes, joints, and skin. Its distinctive molecular structure grants it the exceptional capacity to retain significant amounts of water. This property plays a vital role in regulating the body's moisture levels, influencing the manifestation of wrinkles, fine lines, dry skin, and the overall firmness of the skin. Additionally, hyaluronic acid is an essential component of synovial fluid, contributing to adequate joint lubrication.*
Present naturally in connective tissue, chondroitin sulfate serves as a fundamental element of cartilage. Its primary function is to contribute to joint cushioning, offering both elasticity and resistance. Chondroitin sulfate plays a crucial role in supporting the health of joints, bones, ligaments, and tendons, facilitating optimal mobility. As you age, it can be instrumental in leading a more active lifestyle.*
In straightforward terms, Liquid BioCell® is composed of type II hydrolyzed collagen, a key component vital for healthy joints, youthful skin, and connective tissue. Additionally, it includes hyaluronic acid (HA), essential for skin hydration, tissue maintenance, and a youthful appearance. Furthermore, it contains chondroitin sulfate to bolster joint flexibility and lubrication.*
Q. How was Liquid BioCell® discovered?
Collagen expert Asma Ishaq is the visionary behind the development of Liquid BioCell® products. As Chair of the Board of Directors for the Collagen Stewardship Alliance, Asma has been a trailblazer in the collagen industry, championing ingredient transparency, globally sustainable collagen sourcing, and maintaining ingredient quality and integrity. In 2021, Forbes recognized her as a top CEO in the health and beauty ecommerce space during her tenure as Modere CEO.
The genesis of Liquid BioCell® stems from research focused on hyaluronic acid (HA), initially associated with longer life spans. However, the medical community and researchers encountered a challenge—the natural state of HA was too large for the body to absorb. Asma and her team's curiosity in this scientific pursuit led to the identification of a unique natural source of HA, naturally coexisting with collagen and chondroitin sulfate, mirroring its composition in the human body. Through rigorous testing and development, the raw material was transformed into micromolecules capable of being absorbed by the body. This groundbreaking nutraceutical ingredient, now awarded seven US and international patents, is known as BioCell Collagen.*
Q. How do I know Liquid BioCell® is working?
Conclusive evidence demonstrates that the body efficiently acknowledges and embraces Liquid BioCell® in meticulously controlled clinical settings. In these environments, researchers can systematically assess collagen and hyaluronic acid levels in the skin and blood of participants on a weekly basis.
The collected data reveals noteworthy elevations in both collagen and hyaluronic acid among the study participants. This indicates that Liquid BioCell® is formulated with a molecular weight that facilitates effective absorption into the bloodstream. Notably, it distinguishes itself by avoiding breakdown in the digestive system, a departure from the typical fate of regular collagen proteins.
Q. What is the advantage of its liquid formula?
Liquid BioCell® incorporates a sophisticated liquid delivery system intentionally crafted for user convenience and a pleasant taste. The user-friendly design not only ensures ease of use but also increases the likelihood of consistent supplement intake. This, in turn, enhances overall efficacy and yields better results.
