How Much BioCell Collagen Should You Take Per Day?

Consumers should take BioCell Collagen in 1-gram or 1000-milligram doses per day for skin health benefits, and 2-gram or 2000-milligram doses per day for skin and joint health, according to BioCell Technology. Clinical trials show that participants who took 2-gram doses of BioCell Collagen daily for eight weeks experienced up to a 40 percent improvement in their joint movement and discomfort levels. In another study, 80 out of 89 participants reported decreases in their joint discomfort after taking 2-gram doses.

A 2011 clinical study of BioCell Collagen showed the participants experienced enhanced facial moisture, significantly reduced wrinkles and facial lines, increased collagen production and higher hemoglobin levels in their facial skin tissue after 12 weeks of using the product. Most participants in the study saw their skin textures improve and experienced less facial scaling, notes BioCell Technology.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance present in almost all of the body's tissues and fluids, and hyaluronidase is a bodily substance that breaks down hyaluronic acid, explains BioCell Technology. Hyaluronic acid breakdown is linked to physiological processes related to aging. When taken in regular doses, BioCell Collagen inhibits hyaluronidase, which delays hyaluronic acid breakdown and joint and skin aging processes.

BioCell Collagen contains 60 percent naturally occurring hydrolyzed collagen type II, 20 percent chondroitin sulfate and 10 percent hyaluronic acid.
