Collagen in the body
As the main structural protein in the skin, bones and joints, Collagen is key to their health and maintenance. When the body is young there are ample levels of Collagen which results in firm and smooth skin, strong bones and flexible joints. Many factors however can affect the naturally occurring levels of Collagen in the body, including age, physical stress, environmental factors (sunlight and pollution) and excessive use and strain (for bones and joints). For the skin this can lead to oxidative stress and the signs of ageing such as wrinkles, sagging skin and fine lines. For the bones and joints, they can mean a reduction in movement, brittle bones and stiff joints. As a result of this, Collagen has now become popular in a number of natural health and beauty products for those looking for help with the signs of aging as well as those that participate in sports and live an active lifestyle.
Marine Collagen vs. Bovine Collagen
Commonly referred to as Fish Collagen, Marine Collagen is a natural protein that is extracted from the scales of saltwater fish. This form of collagen contains molecules called peptides, which are well known for their low molecular size and weight. As a result of these peptides, Marine Collagen is said to be absorbed 1.5 times more efficiently than other forms including Bovine and Porcine. This is why it is becoming far more popular than many other Collagen sources, with pure forms of Marine Collagen often being very potent and beneficial for the body.
Due to the popularity of this form of Collagen and the special properties of the peptides, they have now also been widely studied. More specifically, the link between these amazing peptides and collagen synthesis and quality has been studied and it has been suggested that Marine Collagen can have beneficial properties for the skin as well as being very useful for those following a high antioxidant diet or skincare regime.
