Our Marine Collagen powder offers comprehensive support for skin, hair, nails, joint, and bone health through:
Types I, II, & III Marine Collagen Peptides: Derived from wild-caught fish, these collagen peptides cover different collagen types crucial for skin, hair, and bone health.
Hydrolyzed Marine Collagen: The collagen is hydrolyzed to create smaller particles, which enhances its absorption by the body.
Supporting Ingredients for Collagen Synthesis: Additional components in the formula aid in the synthesis of collagen, which is essential for maintaining healthy skin, hair, joints, and bones.
This unflavored, odorless powder dissolves seamlessly in liquids or soft foods.
Collagen, a crucial skin component, contributes to its elasticity and hydration. It supports joint flexibility, protects cartilage, and enables smooth bone movement. It's also essential for the gut's connective tissues, aiding in maintaining the stomach and intestinal linings.
The body naturally produces collagen, but its production slows with age, typically starting in our mid-20s. Collagen can be affected by factors like hormones, stress, poor nutrition, pollution, and sun exposure.
1. Collagen Peptides
Each 12-gram serving of our Marine Collagen contains Types I, II & III collagen peptides sustainably sourced from wild-caught deep-sea fish. These hydrolyzed peptides have small particle sizes and low molecular weights, ensuring better absorption and digestion compared to collagen from other sources.
The amino acid profile in this collagen is high in glycine and proline, crucial for collagen stability. Proline aids in collagen formation, cartilage regeneration, connective tissue health, joint maintenance, skin recovery, and gut lining support.
Glycine is abundant in skin, joint connective tissues, and muscle tissue, contributing significantly to collagen and gelatin formation.
2. Collagen Building Complex
The body synthesizes collagen by combining amino acids, and the process requires essential co-factors like vitamin C, zinc, and copper. Our Marine Collagen includes these vital nutrients, supporting the activation of enzymes necessary for collagen and elastin production, ensuring optimal collagen density and stability.
Copper plays a critical role in linking adjacent collagen fibers, forming a robust collagen network that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It's also suggested that copper supplementation increases the expression of collagen type I and elastin genes, aiding in skin repair and wound healing.
Zinc offers several health benefits, including promoting collagen synthesis and bone mineralization, contributing to wound healing, and supporting healthy skin by enhancing gene expression for collagen production.
Vitamin C is crucial for collagen production, maintaining active enzymes essential for this process. It helps in the hydroxylation of proline and lysine, vital for the production of various types of collagen, ensuring optimal collagen density and mature collagen networks.
The formula also contains Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which aids in collagen synthesis. HA counteracts the effects of IL-1 fibroblasts, which inhibit collagen production, allowing for improved collagen synthesis.
HA is a key molecule involved in skin moisture and stimulating collagen and elastin. It plays a significant role in maintaining skin firmness, shape, and smoothness by binding water and creating a filler between collagen and elastin.
Additionally, HA is a major component of synovial fluid, crucial for lubricating and cushioning joints, enabling smooth movement and reducing joint discomfort associated with aging.
