BioCell Technology welcomes guests to stop by booth #1342 at the Natural Products Expo West, which is being held at the Anaheim Convention Center, March 11 – 13th.
Recently, BioCell Technology was awarded the Frost & Sullivan Best Practices in Customer Value Enhancement of the Year Award. The Frost & Sullivan Award is presented annually to a company that has demonstrated excellence in implementing strategies that proactively create value through research and development activities, with a focus on improving the return on the investment that customers make in its products.
BioCell Technology is also excited to share recent news regarding the company’s flagship product, BioCell Collagen II at Natural Products Expo West. One of these developments is the completion of the largest human study to date of BioCell Collagen II in subjects suffering from joint conditions. This multi-center, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial has demonstrated the safety and efficacy of BioCell Collagen II in addressing symptoms and in improving various physical activities, as measured by VAS and WOMAC scores.
Another major development for BioCell Collagen II is its affirmation of GRAS status. GRAS status affirmation verifies that BioCell Collagen II is safe for use in conventional foods and beverages.

About BioCell Collagen II:
BioCell Collagen II® is a novel dietary ingredient marketed as a healthy aging nutritional supplement that promotes both healthy joints and youthful-looking skin. It is unique in that it is a naturally-occurring matrix whose three major constituents: collagen type II, chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid, are reduced to highly-bioavailable, very low molecular weight forms due to its patented hydrolysis process. Made from articular cartilage, its composition is similar to that of human articular joint cartilage.
