Is Marine Collagen good for the skin?

Sunday, October 21, 2018 - 8:38pm

Marine collagen, comes exclusively from fish skin and their scales. 70% of our skin is made of Type 1 collagen, by supplementing with Marine Peptides, which are a Type 1 collagen, helps to improve skin hydration and firmness. It also helps in stabilizing blood sugar, reduces inflammation, promotes cell proliferation, protein synthesis, and regenerating the extracellular matrix for tissue strength.

Marine collagen is small in particle size and lowest molecular weight among all collagen types, which allows it to pass through the intestinal wall into the bloodstream more easily to provide better healing, repair, and nourishment. An important benefit is that it provides 8 out of 9 essential amino acids, including substantial amounts of glycine and proline which perform important functions throughout the body.
