Liquid BioCell very closely resembles our own connective tissue, and has a liquid delivery system that allows absorption to begin immediately. To understand how Liquid BioCell™ works, it is necessary to understand that every organ system in our body is composed of HA (hyaluronic acid), chondroitin sulfate, collagen, a number of different elements, and water.
Liquid BioCell researchers discovered in the early 2000’s a matrix of collagen type II, HA, and chondroitin sulfate that very closely resembles our own connective tissue. This source was originally produced in a powder form. It is noted that in the powder form (capsule) it has to pass through two portals before being absorbed into the circulatory system. It must first pass through the intestinal barrier and then make its way to the liver where it may be altered. This is known as the “first-pass” effect of metabolism.
In 2008 after years of additional research, a liquid form of this powder was produced. This brought about a quantum leap in bioavailability. Liquids have certain advantages over pill, capsule, or other oral administration in that it is more direct, it is often faster, and it ensures that the substance will risk degradation only by salivary enzymes before entering the bloodstream. Liquid BioCell begins to be absorbed immediately as we drink it via the blood vessels in the mouth and under the tongue.
Liquid BioCell's patented hydrolysis process produces an ideal molecular weight for increased bioavailability. Another unique quality of Liquid BioCell makes it recognizable to our body for ease of assimilation. Liquid BioCell is a complex patented molecule composed of naturally occurring HA, chondroitin sulfate, and collagen type II that undergoes a patented hydrolysis process by which collagen peptides, and all other constituents, including hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate, are broken down to low molecular weight forms resulting in: 1) increased bioavailability, 2) stimulation of multiple types of collagen (I, II, and III). The undenatured forms of collagen do not have the same ability due to its high molecular weight. Molecular weight comparison: Liquid BioCell (1.5 - 2 kDa) vs. undenatured (200 – 300 kDa).
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is an integral lubricating component of natural synovial fluid in the joints and is important to overall joint function and health. We begin to lose HA the day we are born and begin to absorb free radicals at the same time. Beginning in our late twenties or early thirties we also begin to lose collagen. The congruent decline of both HA and collagen brings about the changes that we recognize as aging, namely wrinkling and drying out of our skin, degradation of our joints, as well as a host of other changes.
As an orthopedic surgeon, I am excited about what we are seeing happen to our joints with the use of this nutraceutical. From birth until our epiphyses (growth plates) close, at about 15 in girls and 19 in boys, all of our joints are nourished by the blood. After this physical maturity, and for the rest of our lives, there is no blood circulation to the joints. The health and nourishment of all the joints are then dependent on the amount and quality of the synovial fluid produced by the synovium (lining capsule) of every joint. Synovial fluid composed of hyaluronic acid (HA), is secreted into the joint cavity to increase the viscosity and elasticity of articular cartilage and to lubricate the surfaces between the synovium and cartilage.
As we age a couple of things come into play: 1) the effects of unremembered joint trauma, 2) the diminished quality of the synovial fluid. Just as our skin wrinkles, a similar process is going on in our joints. Liquid BioCell is clinically shown to increase HA levels in our bodies, help promote healthy cartilage, and I believe, improve the quality of synovial fluid.
I believe "bone on bone" is a misnomer. Another consideration that I believe, is the term “bone on bone”, that is frequently used to explain the x-ray appearance of joint discomfort, is a misnomer. There is always a thin layer of cartilage present or the joint would be full of blood. In the worst hip or knee that I have ever operated on, there was always twenty to forty percent of fairly normal looking cartilage but slightly rough to feel. It is this same cartilage that I believe Liquid BioCell can support.
Liquid BioCell Life is like nothing else we've seen. To this point I've been discussing Liquid BioCell, the ingredient, and would like to further comment on the product, Liquid BioCell Life. In order to make it easier to understand, Liquid BioCell Life consists of three components: 1) Liquid BioCell, 2) resveratrol, 3) 13 antioxidant superfruits.
The first, Liquid BioCell, and the most important, is the complex patented molecule consisting of hydrolyzed collagen type II, HA, and chondroitin sulfate.
The second, resveratrol, comes from the skin of red grapes. It's known for its antioxidant and cardiovascular health benefits, and believed to be responsible for the French Paradox. The term French Paradox was coined by Serge Renaud, a scientist from Bordeaux University in France. Where wine is drunk like we should drink water, the French have the lowest incidence of heart disease and obesity despite their very rich diet. There are numerous studies supporting its beneficial qualities. Not all resveratrols are the same. Trans-resveratrol is the form used in Liquid BioCell Life, which is the pure, active, ultra-beneficial form of resveratrol.
The third, 13 antioxidant superfruits include mangosteen, açaí, nopal, maqui, pomegranate, gogi, blueberries, cranberry, noni, jujube, grapes, strawberry, and apple. Harmful compounds called free radicals can be caused by a number of forces such as the sun, aging, alcohol, or even exercise. Because of their instability they cause cell damage. Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals.
I want to close by asking you to remember the three things that I believe make this product so unique and like nothing else we have seen to date, and, that it will be many years if ever before it can be duplicated.
1. The source of the collagen in this product closely resembles our own connective tissue, thus allowing the body to recognize it.
2. The size of the molecule is so small that it is easily absorbed starting in the mucous membrane of our mouth.
3. What I have called the “Genius of Liquid BioCell Life” is these three world class clinically-studied substances-- patented Liquid BioCell, resveratrol, and 13 antioxidant superfruits-- have been combined into a delicious nutraceutical that synergistically help each product work better than if taken alone.
More about Dr. Louis P. Brady
Dr. Louis Brady is a graduate of Emory University’s School of Medicine and is Board Certified in Orthopedics. He is an Associate Clinical Professor at the University of Central Florida, College of Medicine. Dr. Brady’s work in the area of orthopedics spans over four decades. According to Dr. Brady, Liquid BioCell Life is the “most remarkable product to have ever been introduced for joints and the aging process.” Dr. Brady believes that as orthopedic specialists begin recommending Liquid BioCell to their patients, “we may see the incidence and severity of one’s joint problems, as we know it today, gradually declining.”
