What is Marine Collagen?
Collagen, also known as the beauty protein, is a natural protein that the body produces and is essential in forming strong muscles, skin, nails and hair. Collagen is the glue that holds the body together. It is the building block for all our body’s systems. Collagen accounts for the elasticity and strength of our skin, support for connective tissue, ligaments, bones, cartilage and tendons.
How Does Marine Collagen Work?
Collagen is a naturally occurring structural protein which acts as a building block for our body’s systems. The body’s natural collagen production typically slows down at a rate of 1.5% per year after the age of 25. Collagen fibres become brittle, resulting in weakening of the skin’s dermis. This results in many visible signs of ageing such as loss of elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen also supports connective tissue, ligaments, bones, cartilage and tendons.
