Collagen is one of the most important structural components in our body, representing 1/15th 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.
Collagen is used daily by millions of people around the world. It has a long history of use in food and natural health products in both Asia and Europe. The popularity of marine collagen is due not only to its nutritional benefits; it is also natural and proven to be highly safe for regular consumption.
To provide the highest quality possible, we produce our Ultra Pure TruMarine™ Collagen exclusively from fish scales, presenting unmatched advantages.
withinUs TruMarine™ is a Type I collagen – the most abundant form – which is found in bones, tendons, skin and tissues. Studies show that hydrolyzed collagen derived from fish scales consists of small peptide molecules that have superior bio-availability and digestibility when compared with other collagen products. Due to their lower molecular weight, these peptides are absorbed at a higher level through the intestinal barrier into the bloodstream, where they are then carried through the body, leading to collagen synthesis in the joint tissues, bones and skin dermis.
withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen is characterized by its unique amino acid composition, having high concentrations of glycine, proline and hydroxyproline. The interaction and concentration of these three specific amino acids have nutri-functional properties that support health and beauty by stimulating cells throughout the body. Studies show that the amount of Pro-Hyp peptides absorbed into the bloodstream is significantly higher after ingestion of fish scale collagen than other forms of collagen.
Hydrolyzed marine collagen (that's us!) generates bioactive peptides, which enhances the production of collagen, skin hydration, hair growth, and joint health.
