Sea-based col­la­gen for sup­ple skin

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR SPECIAL -

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.

Hy­drol­ysed col­la­gen

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.
