Collagen and the body
Collagen is a key structural protein in the body and is most commonly found in the skin, bones and joints. Ample levels of Collagen are found in young bodies, which is what gives it its youthful appearance and the bones and joints function smoothly. As the body ages however, the levels of collagen slowly drops, which can result in the visible signs of aging such as wrinkles as well as the not visible signs such as aching or stiff joints and weak bones. This is why it is common for older people and for those that take part in sport or live an active lifestyle to add extra natural sources of collagen into their daily routine.
Why choose Marine Collagen over conventional Collagen?
There are many different types of Collagen available with Marine Collagen being one of the most beneficial. Also known as Fish Collagen, it is a protein from the scales of saltwater fish that contains molecules called peptides.These peptides have become very popular in recent years as it has been seen that they have a low molecular size weight. As a result of this, it is said that Marine Collagen can be absorbed by the body 1.5 times more efficiently than other types of collagen such as porcine and bovine. For this reason, the link between these peptides and collagen synthesis in the body has been thoroughly studied. Click here for more information on this. There has also been research conducted relating to how the Marine Collagen peptides can help to improve skin properties. The research also suggests that Marine Collagen could be an ideal addition for those that follow high-antioxidant diets. Find out more here.

Also known as Hyaluronan, Hyaluronic Acid is found in all bones, joints and cartilage structures in the body. It is also a component that is particularly abundant in the synovial fluid which is said to help joints to absorb shock, to keep their elasticity and strength. This is key for the knee joints, which is why it is commonly used by those with weak knees. Click here for more.
As a key mineral, Zinc is said to be very beneficial for the health and wellbeing of the body. This is because Zinc is known to contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress and to normal protein synthesis. Oxidative stress is considered to be a large cause for damage at a cellular level so it is very important for many aspects of the body to protect it from this.
