Sea-based collagen for supple skin
EVERYONE knows that collagen is important for the skin. It is one of the essential building blocks to smooth and healthy skin.
Collagen is therefore crucial: This naturally occurring protein keeps skin smooth and youthful, but our bodies produce less as we get older.
As we age, collagen diminishes, leading to fine lines, loss of firmness and less suppleness. The result? Thinner skin, dryness and fine lines.
Synthesis vs degradation
New collagen is continually produced and recycled throughout life.
At a young age, collagen synthesis predominates, but after the age of 25, degradation of collagen picks up speed. To keep the skin’s collagen level in balance, collagen synthesis has to be increased to reduce collagen degradation.
Collagen is an insoluble form of protein with higher molecular weight. However, it is not easily absorbed by our body.
Hydrolysed collagen is broken down into a smaller molecular size through hydrolysis, making it easier for absorption.
Taking hydrolysed collagen supplements could help preserve lean body mass in older women, according to a 2009 study in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association.
Quantity and quality
We need around 8,000mg to 10,000mg of collagen daily to replenish the body’s declining levels.
For skin and beauty, the best type of supplement has low molecular weight, like fish collagen peptide. This type helps to replenish about 90% of our body’s overall collagen.
Studies show this type of collagen levels could improve hair, skin, and nails dramatically.
Quality is also important as it promotes better absorption and utilisation by our body.
