Dietary supplement said to have positive effect on connective tissue recovery after exercise
A new study has highlighted the effect of BioCell Collagen on tendon and ligament connective tissue recovery in healthy subjects following intense resistance training exercise.
The Newport Beach, CA, US-headquartered manufacturer of the dietary supplement will present the findings at the International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN) conference, which takes place in Clearwater Beach, Florida on 20–21 June.
Tim Ziegenfuss will discuss the data during a speaker presentation at 3.30pm on 20 June. A poster presentation session will also be held at 1.00pm on 21 June by lead investigator Hector Lopez, a doctor in physical medicine and rehabilitation with a focus on spine and sports medicine.
'This new clinical study in physically active healthy subjects provides intriguing new data suggesting that this patented, scientifically substantiated dietary supplement has promising new applications in sports nutrition,' said Joosang Park, Vice President of Scientific Affairs at BioCell Technology.
BioCell Collagen is said to promote active joints, youthful looking skin, and healthy connective tissues. Unlike other collagen and hyaluronic acid ingredients on the market, it contains a patented composition of naturally occurring hydrolysed collagen type II, chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid in a highly absorbable matrix form that has been the subject of numerous human clinical trials including safety, efficacy, and bioavailability.
