Collagen as a nutritional ingredient can be classified into one of several groups depending on its type, source and manufacturing processes. The most common varieties of collagen are:
Type I collagen (includes trendy bone broth supplements)
- Hydrolyzed, derived from porcine skin/bovine hide (aka gelatin), eggshell membrane and/or fish
Type II collagen (made from chicken sternal cartilage)
- Undenatured or unhydrolyzed collagen
- Hydrolyzed collagen matrix: a natural matrix of collagen, hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate (Liquid BioCell®)
The innovations pioneered by Liquid BioCell, such as our advanced liquid delivery system, have set new precedents in the industry that continue to challenge conventional brands to step up their game. However, none can match the unique combination of single-source collagen, the matrix composition and optimal molecular weight that makes Liquid BioCell so effective. Only Liquid BioCell offers all of the following features:
- Multiple industry awards
- 7 U.S. and international patents
- Naturally sourced matrix (not a blend), consisting of:
- hydrolyzed type II collagen (60%)
- hyaluronic acid (10%)
- chondroitin sulfate (20%)
Thanks to its Bio-Optimized™ micromolecules, our unique matrix of collagen, HA and chondroitin sulfate has been proven effective at just 1-2 grams per serving in multiple human clinical studies. This studied dosage is delivered via the recommended serving size of just two tablespoons (30mL) of Liquid BioCell per day.
For comparison, the majority of hydrolyzed collagen supplements made from bovine, marine or pig sources typically require a large daily serving of 10-20 grams—often delivered in a hefty scoop of powder—yet are not backed by the same proven studies.
