The Benefits of Collagen
Why Marine Collagen with Hyaluronic Acid? Maintain your skin, hair and muscle health, and prevent dryness and a dull complexion.
What is Collagen?
Collagens are the most abundant proteins in the body, present in the skin, bones, tendons and ligaments. They physically hold the body together. There are 16 types that we rely on for skin, bone and joint health.
As we age, our collagen production can decrease by up to 50%. Factors like smoking, excessive sun exposure and chronic stress can damage collagen production.
Why Marine Collagen with Hyaluronic Acid?
Marine Collagen is a powerhouse protein sourced from wild-caught, non-GMO fish (ours is from Nova Scotia). One scoop of our formula contains 9g of protein!
It's made from the scales of cod, pollock and haddock and then hydrolyzed by acids and enzymes to yield collagen peptides. Peptides are smaller versions of protein with a low molecular weight for easy digestion and absorption.
Marine Collagen consists of Type 1 collagen, the most plentiful in our bodies, which maintains the elasticity and firmness of the skin. Studies have shown that continued supplementation of hydrolyzed collagen helps to relieve and reduce joint pain, bone density loss and skin ageing.
Additional benefits of collagen supplementation include:
- improved skin texture
- anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
- hydrated skin
- reduced fine lines
- gut health support
Hyaluronic acid is a macromolecule naturally present in the body. It plays a role in cushioning and lubricating the body and is found in the eyes, joints and heart valves. A powerful antioxidant with a unique capacity to retain water, Hyaluronic acid is essential for hydration!
