Collagen makes up to 80% of our skin. It’s what gives our skin strength and elasticity. But as we age our collagen production slows and our skin shows the signs of ageing. By the age of 80, we only have 30% of the levels of collagen we had when we were 20.
It’s also vital for joints. In a recent study those patients with damaged cartilage who were given collagen supplements showed ‘significant re-growth of damaged cartilage’ and in another study on patients with rheumatoid arthritis patients taking collagen had reduced joint pain and swelling.
How Will Marine Hydrolysed Collagen Help?
Type 1 collagen is the most abundant form of collagen in our body and is most typically associated with skin and bones.
Normally collagen molecules are so large that they are simply too big to be absorbed when taken and thus never reach the skin. The hydrolysed collagen in our powder means that it is absorbed quickly into the body. In fact, studies have shown that 90% of hydrolysed collagen is absorbed in just a few hours.
Our collagen is also only obtained from marine sources – widely regarded as the highest quality and most bioavailable source of collagen and is absorbed up to 1.5 times more efficiently than bovine or porcine collagen.
Our high-quality protein collagen contains the 18 amino acids your body needs to maintain healthy skin, hair, nails and joints.
PLUS 9 More Vitamins and Nutrients
To ensure you’re getting the highest quality rejuvenation properties our Marine Hydrolysed Collagen is enriched with Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin B3, Biotin, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid & Pantothenic Acid.
These vital nutrients work to boost collagen absorption, stimulate your body’s natural collagen production and hydrate your skin from within.
Add it to shakes, smoothies and juice or just dissolve it in water for a delicious easy to take addition to your day.
Marine collagen: the highest quality, and most bioavailable source of collagen. Marine collagen is a complex structural protein that helps maintain the strength and flexibility of skin, ligaments, joints, bones, muscles, tendons, blood vessels, gums, eyes, nails and hair. It’s a type I collagen, which is the most abundant collagen in the human body and is best known for providing the foundation for beautiful skin, strong connective tissues and sturdy bones. Marine collagen also has antioxidant properties that have been used in skin-care products to prevent or even repair the damage caused by environmental factors, such as UV rays and low humidity, as well as damage associated with the ageing process.
Vitamin C: important for collagen production, it supports skincare by protecting against sunburn, pollution, and ageing by neutralising free radicals. It helps hay fever by acting as a natural antihistamine to reduce the effects of pollen allergy. And it is beneficial to eyesight by preventing the development of age-related cataracts.
Hyaluronic acid: is naturally occurring in connective tissue throughout our bodies, with 50% of it being found in our skin. It has an important role in retaining moisture, as one molecule alone can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water. Skin cells naturally produce hyaluronic acid, in order to maintain moisture levels. However, factors such as the ageing process, diet and environmental aggressors can mean that those levels drop. This can lead to sensitivity, dullness, fine lines and uneven tone and texture.
Vitamin B3 (niacin): contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal functioning of the nervous system, the maintenance of normal skin and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Biotin: contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal functioning of the nervous system and normal hair, skin and nails.
Thiamin (Vitamin B1): plays an important role in maintaining a healthy nervous system, digestive and cardiovascular system. It helps in the conversion of carbohydrates into glucose, which in turn is used to produce energy for carrying out various body functions. It is required for the breakdown of fats and protein.
Riboflavin: affects thyroid hormone production, which is responsible for speeding up metabolism and providing a steady flow of energy. It also helps the body produce immune cells and build red blood cells. Plus it contains substances that assist other nutrients as powerful antioxidants, repair and maintain tissue and heal wounds. It also helps with healthy eye functions and healthy nerves.
Vitamin B6: essential for the breakdown of food and the production of energy, the production of neurotransmitters and for the proper functioning of the nervous system and the immune system. It is also involved in the synthesis of hormones and red blood cells. Also helps fight stress and manage symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
Folic Acid: needed for the production and maintenance of new cells, as well as for DNA and RNA synthesis.
Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5): known for its role in maintaining healthy hair, skin, and eyes.
300g powder, add 1 level scoop of powder to 250ml water or juice. Collagen dissolves more effectively when shaken rather than stirred. It can be used in a cold or warm drink though it will dissolve better under tepid conditions.
