The H. A. Mend Advantage:
BioCell Type II Collagen Matrix consists of Collagen, Hyaluronic acid in a patented delivery system utilizing a low molecular weight H.A. (less than 30,000 daltons) for optimal utilization by the body and chondroitin sulfate. 60 mg of H.A. per serving.
About the Formula:
Hyaluronic acid (H.A. or Sodium Hyaluronate) is found throughout the body for structural support. It is found most abundantly in cartilage, synovial fluid, skin, and the fluid of the eye.
H.A. acts as a cushion and lubricant in the joints and other tissues by helping to thicken synovial fluid, pulling water into the joints, and supporting connective tissue structures.
H.A. is a natural moisturizing agent and is essential for the structure of the extracellular matrix which keeps the skin moist and supple.
H.A. acts as a space-filler in dermal layers between skin cells and produces a long-lasting skin enhancement which makes skin soft, smooth and elastic, especially for the face and lips.
H.A. nourishes and hydrates collagen which is vital to maintaining the skin’s layers and structures.
Glucosamine Sulfate is a great way to supplement your HA intake. It can support joint health, connective tissue health, G.I. tract function and skin health.
Glucosamine supplementation can also help support the thick gelatinous nature of the joint fluids as well as proper functioning of joints and spinal discs.
Methylsulfonylmethane helps support joint comfort and supplies an excellent source of sulfur to help ensure the body’s ability to synthesize collagen for connective tissue health, and maintain cell membrane flexibility.
