BioCell Technology, LLC, exclusive worldwide supplier of BioCell Collagen IIŽ, was recently awarded a patent for the manufacturing process of BioCell Collagen IIŽ, hydrolyzed collagen type II with hyaluronic acid (HA) and chondroitin sulfate. The U.S. patent supports the joint, skin, and eye health benefit research findings for their pioneering invention of collagen type II and further establishes the company's leadership role in the natural products and cosmecuticals industries. Already the recipient of two previous patents, the new patent includes novel methods and compositions containing hyaluronic acid, which is a powerful and essential ingredient in the collagen matrix.

"BioCell has worked diligently to provide consumers with the highest concentrated natural source of collagen type II available in the marketplace today. Our advanced ingredient and manufacturing process is supported by credible scientific research. As our third patent, we are confident that it will protect our innovative technology and further validate the quality of BioCell Collagen IIŽ and the ingredient's efficacy for joint and skin health benefits," said Suhail Ishaq, vice president of BioCell Technology, LLC.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office awarded Patent No. US 6,780,841, entitled hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate based hydrolyzed collagen type II and method of making same to BioCell on August 24, 2004. The patent protects BioCell's process of manufacturing, preparation and use of hydrolzyed collagen type II powder compositions administered orally for absorption through the gastrointestinal tract or topically for dermis absorption in treating connective tissue disorder and replenishing skin viscoelasticity.

BioCell Collagen IIŽ is a natural type II collagen ingredient that provides a naturally occurring matrix of bioavailable Hyaluronic Acid, depoiymerized Chondroitin Suifate, and Collagen Type II. The new patent protects the composition of BioCell Collagen IIŽ, the natural matrix that matches the joint structure itself, in both oral and topical applications. Synergistically, BioCell Collagen IIŽ may be the missing link to glucosomine and chondroitin formula combinations.

According to Ishaq, the patent highlights many of the ingredient's joint health benefits. Hydrolyzed collagen type II can be used to treat degenerative joint diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, joint defects, vascular disease, progressive myopia, cartilage injuries and connective tissue disorders that usually benefit from increased synthesis of new cartilage. BioCell Collagen IIŽ is the most abundant protein found in joint cartilage and reduces oxidative damage to the joints. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a joint nourishing element that is essential in reducing joint friction caused by the joint's degradation of its natural lubrication.

Collagen type II skin health benefits are also widely recognized. Since BioCell Collagen IIŽ is of low molecular weight, research has shown that this is easily absorbed and readily available for use in the body. HA acts as a skin-nourishing element that allows skin to retain moisture, which promotes healing and skin tissue rejuvenation. The revitalizing constituents of the HA and chondroitin suifate work together to restore viscoelasticity to the skin, reduce sun-induced wrinkles, protect connective tissues, promote cartilage synthesis, heal wounds and improve the overall appearance of the skin.

Ishaq said BioCell is preparing to advance information on the new patent and details on increased scientific findings in support of BioCell Collagen IIŽ at the SupplySide West International Trade Show and Conference in Las Vegas next month. On Friday, October 1 Dr. William V. Judy will present a special educational seminar titled "BioCell Collagen if Bioavailable Collagen & Hyaluronic Acid: New Science on Skin and Joint Health Benefits" &\ 2 p.m. -2:50 p.m. in Room 801-802 in Venetian & Sands Expo.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.
