Curious about what collagen is and where it comes from? Read on!
All of our collagen products use hydrolyzed marine collagen. This ensures that the collagen is broken down to be most effectively processed by the human body.
Marine collagen is known to have the best absorption and bioavailability compared to other animal collagens. Marine collagen’s ability to be more easily absorbed by our bodies is due to its lower molecular weight and size. Bioavailability is highly important since it determines the effectiveness of any supplement you take.
Studies have shown that the use of dietary collagen increases the skin’s hydration which improves elasticity and reduces wrinkles. As we age, both the number and the activity of skin cells (fibroblasts) that produce collagen decrease. The collagen matrix that provides skin firmness and structure starts to break down and our skin becomes dehydrated and thinner, with fine lines, wrinkles and deeper furrows starting to appear. Scientific research has proven that collagen nutrition can vitally influence our skin’s elasticity, firmness and moisture-binding capacity by contributing to optimum levels of well-organized collagen fibers. Studies have shown that the use of our marine collagen has a double effect. It not only increases the skin’s hydration by 28%, which improves elasticity and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, but it also builds up the collagen support structure under the epidermis, which creates a plumper look and counters sagging skin.
As we age, maintaining strong bones, joints and muscles becomes harder. Each of these Collagen supplements reduces joint pain, increases bone strength, and helps to maintain muscle mass.
