Don’t just build collagen, build healthy collagen. The synergy of fish collagen peptides, silicon, and whole-food vitamin C help protect against skin aging while supporting hair and nail health. A daily dose of Marine Collagen + Co-Factor benefits include:
- Build: Helps in collagen formation
- Support: Helps to maintain healthy skin, hair, and nails
- Protect: Source of an antioxidant that helps protect against free radicals
- Repair: Helps in wound healing
Research has shown that collagen peptides can stimulate cells to increase collagen production. Topical applications of collagen would appear to be a logical approach, however, the barrier properties of the skin’s outer layer, the epidermis, prevents collagen peptides from reaching the dermal layer, the site of the collagen matrix.
When consumed orally, collagen peptides are absorbed into the bloodstream and reach the dermis where they stimulate the production of collagen as well as hyaluronic acid, another important component of the skin’s collagen matrix.
Vitamin C and the mineral Silicon are essential co-factors in a process called collagen crosslinking. This process improves collagen strength, function, and makes it more resistant to damage. Additionally, Vitamin C is an important skin antioxidant and Silicon maintains the health of skin, hair, and nails.
