Collagen - The Protein of Youth
Collagen is one of the most important structural components in our bodies, representing 1/15 of our total body weight. This fibre-shaped protein plays an extremely important role in ensuring the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of skin, bones, tendons, ligaments and skeletal muscles. Approximately 75% of our skin is composed of collagen.
Hydrolyzed marine collagen is used daily by millions of people around the world. The popularity of collagen is due not only to its nutritional benefits, it is also natural and proven to be highly safe for regular consumption.
Collagen is best known for providing the basis for beautiful skin, strong connective tissues and healthy bones. But the real advantage to collagen supplementation lies in its ability to enhance regeneration of the collagen cycle and stimulate cells to restore body tissues. A building block for all the body’s systems, it also is a major component of membranes that surround and protect the internal organs, and of blood vessels, ligaments, tendons and bones. One-quarter to one-third of all the protein in the body is collagen protein.
Scientific studies have shown that a daily intake of 5 grams of hydrolyzed marine collagen results in significant anti-aging benefits within 4-8 weeks.
