Feel revitalized with a product designed to support joint function, plus renew healthy skin, hair and nails. CellRenew is an abundant source of Hyaluronic Acid and Chondroitin Sulfates. It is an absorbable hydrolyzed collagen type II product derived from 100% pure chicken sternal cartilage that strengthens cartilage, relieves joint discomfort and increases mobility. CellRenew naturally contains the key “beauty” substance, hyaluronic acid that can repair skin by boosting hydration and elasticity, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Collagen Type II:
Along with the natural components of Hyaluronic Acid and Chondroitin Sulfates, Collagen Type II (CCII) contains cartilage glycoproteins that boost antioxidant protection in the joints. CCII’s properties can suppress pro-inflammatory activity to reduce joint discomfort and restore cartilage health.1 CCII from chicken sternal cartilage was shown to reduce chronic joint inflammation by helping to regulate humoral and cellular immune systems. 2,3
A three-month study recruited 60 patients with chronic joint inflammation to take CCII or a placebo. Results indicated CCII alleviated swollen and tender joints in the treatment group. Four patients in the treatment group had a complete remission of chronic joint inflammation.4
A twelve-week study recruited 24 patients with chronic joint inflammation to take Collagen Type II. Results indicated 90% of patients experienced improvement in joint health, without side effects.5 Similarly, a pilot-study recruited female subjects with joint pain to take Hydrolyzed Collagen Type II for 42 days. Subjects reported a significant improvement in joint mobility and decrease in joint pain and stiffness.6
CCII is evidenced to be effective among adolescents with chronic joint inflammation. A pilot-study administered CCII to 10 adolescent patients with chronic joint inflammation for 12 weeks. Eight patients experienced a reduction in swollen and tender joints. CCII was well-tolerated by all subjects.7 A similar pilot-study recruited nine adolescents with chronic joint inflammation to take an oral Collagen Type II, finding the supplement was well-tolerated and reduced joint inflammation.8
An animal study found that CCII improved immune balance to help regulate the production of helper T cells.9
Chondroitin Sulfate (Component of Collagen Type II)
Naturally found in sternal chicken Collagen Type II, chondroitin sulfate has anti-inflammatory activity that reduces joint swelling, maintains synovial fluid levels, and spacing between the joints.10 Furthermore, chondroitin sulfate reduces the proliferation of proteins to reduce joint inflammation.11
A one-year study recruited 42 patients with knee pain to take chondroitin sulfate or a placebo. Subjects taking chondroitin sulfate had greater joint mobility and less pain, when compared to the placebo group. Researchers suggested chondroitin sulfate could stabilize joint space, while improving bone and joint metabolism.12
A three-month study recruited 110 patients with knee pain to take chondroitin sulfate or a placebo finding supplementation improved knee function, reduced pain, and maintained joint space in the knee.13
One study found that cartilage cells responded to chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine when joints were under stress in aged-animals. Researchers suggested chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine could repair and regenerate cartilage by supporting normal metabolic function in the joints.14
Hyaluronic Acid (Component of Collagen Type II)
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural component of sternal chicken Collagen Type II. HA is also found in human cartilage, skin collagen, and synovial fluid. Unfortunately, optimum amounts diminish with age leading to weaker joints and aging skin.15
Studies have suggested hyaluronic acid has anti-inflammatory activity that suppresses pro-inflammatory and pain mechanisms in the body.16
A twelve-month study compared the effects of HA with an exercise therapy among 30 patients with ankle inflammation and pain. Researchers found that both the HA and exercise therapy groups had functional improvement in their ankle joints, suggesting both therapies are beneficial in treating joint discomfort.17
Researchers found that HA inhibited inflammatory cytokine activity in mice with inflamed joints.18 A similar study reviewed the effects of HA on acute and chronic inflammation in rats, finding HA suppressed inflammatory reactions to aid healthy cartilage production.19
Furthermore, HA is a natural moisturizer found in skin collagen that is commonly used in skincare procedures.20 Restoring HA can improve protein-binding activity and enhance tissue production to deter the effects of aging skin.21,11
