Clinical Trials

Beauty-from-Within Study 

The effects of visible signs of aging among healthy women were examined in this study.  Twenty-six women experiencing both natural and photo-aging in the face were given BioCell Collagen (1 g/day) for twelve weeks.  BioCell Collagen was well tolerated and demonstrated multi-layered mechanisms which included:

  1. Reduction of facial lines and wrinkles by 13%
  2. Reduction of dryness and skin scaling by 76%
  3. Increase in collagen content (type I / III) in the dermis
  4. Enhancement of dermal blood microcirculation  

The majority of the study participants experienced improved skin texture as well as enhanced moisture and reduced dryness/scaling in their face.  The study outcome was published in The Clinical Interventions in Aging (2012).

Conclusion: BioCell Collagen promotes healthy aging and skin beauty. 


Joint Health Studies

The safety and efficacy of BioCell Collagen in promoting joint comfort and mobility of the hips and/or knees were investigated.  In this study, 80 people were given BioCell Collagen™ (2 g/day) or a placebo for 70 days. BioCell Collagen was well tolerated and, as compared to the placebo, significantly promoted joint comfort and mobility, confirming the safety and efficacy shown in an earlier clinical trial.  The outcome of this study was published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry (2012).

These results corroborated the results of an earlier double-blind placebo-controlled trial tested on sixteen people.  As compared to the placebo, BioCell Collagen™ significantly promoted joint comfort by as much as 40% at the conclusion of the study.  The study details were presented in 2004 at the international conference of Experimental Biology in Washington D.C. 

Conclusion: BioCell Collagen promotes joint comfort and mobility. 


Safety Evidence

A panel of experts who are qualified by training and experience to evaluate the safety of food ingredients has determined through scientific procedures that the intended uses of BioCell Collagen as a dietary supplement ingredient is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS).  The experts concluded that the intended use is GRAS based on scientific procedures and corroborated by an extensive history of safe use. The expert panel also believes that other experts qualified by training and experience to evaluate the safety of food ingredients would concur with this self-affirmed GRAS determination.
