Collagen makes up 30% of the living body's protein over 70% of our skin's protein. Our ability to produce collagen plateaus in our mid to late 20's - by age 30 we begin to lose 1-2% of our collagen every year - causing sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Consuming Collagen can replenish lost collagen, slow the signs of aging, repair and restore skin's natural youth form within.
Studies recommend "loading' the body with a high concentration of collagen peptides to trigger a "wound repair response" in the body. This is where the brain senses excess collagen and routes it to areas of the dermis (skin, hair follicles & nails) where there is damaged or broken down collagen. Once in the dermis the collagen peptides and amino acids re-activate the fibroblasts to produce new collagen.
Drinking collagen is more readily absorbed through the intestinal wall compared to other delivery formats (pills, capsules, lotions).
So which collagen is best for your skin, hair and nails?
Type 1 Collagen is the most abundant in the body and the skin is about 90% Type 1.
Marine Collagen powder contains the smallest Type 1 Collagen molecule over all other collagen sources. Therefore, being the quickest natural way to reduce aging and improve skin, hair & nails.
*Studies show consuming 2 Tbsps daily can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve hair growth, strengthen nails, reduce joint pain and increase bone density.
