What is Hydrolyzed Marine Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant structural protein in the human body, providing stability and strength to tissues such as tendons, skin, bones and teeth. In the scientific literature, collagen protein has demonstrated antioxidant properties, antihypertensive activity, lipid-lowering activity and therapeutic use for damaged skin conditions (1).
Collagen protein is supplemented worldwide, mainly because it can accentuate joint health and improve skin elasticity. Benefits have been demonstrated with 10g of collagen per day for maintaining and improving joint health mediated by reduced pain and stiffness (2).
Found in the connective tissue of the skin, joints and bones, collagen protein provides structural integrity and is vital for normal tissue function and a youthful appearance of the skin. The skin undergoes natural aging that occurs simultaneously with functional deterioration, an important feature of which is a decrease in the synthesis of collagen in the connective tissue. Therefore, collagen protein has been instrumental in mitigating these challenges associated with aging (6).
Collagen-derived peptides harbor a number of different exciting biological properties, such as the increased ability to retain water molecules in skin cells and contribute to the production of synovial fluid in the joints, both of which should theoretically translate to healthier skin and joints. (7).
Health benefits of hydrolyzed fish collagen?
We also know from research that “crow’s feet” defined by the outer corner of the eye wrinkles are significantly reduced after an additional protocol of collagen at 1 g / day for 12 weeks. In addition, we see significant reductions in dryness/flaking and facial lines. Individuals wishing to delay the onset of skin aging are recommended to follow this additional protocol (3).
Oral intake of collagen hydrolyzate at a daily dose of 10 g for six months in patients with osteoarthritis significantly reduced localized pain. Theoretically, anyone who has joint pain in combination with inflammation can benefit from supplementing with 10g of collagen protein daily. In addition, oral intake of collagen increases blood levels of bioactive peptides that stimulate a cell type (fibroblasts) that produces a specific molecule called hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a prominent product in the cosmetic industry and skin health care (4,5).
