Collagen and the body
Key to the health and maintenance of the skin, bones and joints, Collagen is a naturally occurring structural protein. When the body is young, skin appears smooth and firm, bones are strong and joints are flexible. This is due to ample levels of Collagen. As we age and through other factors such as physical stress, environment (sunlight and pollution) and excessive strain (on the bones and joints), the naturally occurring levels can unfortunately decrease. This may result in oxidative stress in the skins cells which can be a cause of wrinkles, sagging skin, fine line and other aging signs. For the bones and joints, it can mean a reduction in movement, stiff joints and brittle bones. To help give the body’s Collagen levels a boost, many people are now turning to natural health and beauty product that are a good source of Collagen. These types of products are often ideal for those that lead an active lifestyle as well as those looking for help with the appearance of ageing.
Marine Collagen vs. Bovine Collagen
Also known by the name Fish Collagen, Marine Collagen is a natural protein extracted from the scales of saltwater fish. This form of collagen contains peptides, which are small molecules that are known to have a low molecular size and weight. These particular properties make Marine Collagen have a high level of bioavailability and is said to be absorbed 1.5 times more efficiently than other forms including Bovine and Porcine. This is what has lead to a rise in the popularity of Marine Collagen, with pure forms being extremely in demand for their potency.
With the rise in popularity, there has now been more and more research conducted on Marine Collagen and its benefits. One particular study has looked into its peptides and its link with Collagen synthesis and quality. It has suggested that Marine Collagen can have beneficial properties for the skin and can also be useful for those following a high antioxidant skincare regime or diet.
