New Zealand Marine Collagen

The hero ingredient which can be found in our supplement is sustainably sourced New Zealand marine collagen.

Our collagen is sourced from discarded fish bones and scales. It is rich in type 1 collagen. Studies have shown that fish collagen peptides are smaller, giving them superior bioavailability and digestibility to Bovine (animal collagen). Fish collagen may prove to be one of the best types to take because it contains higher levels of a certain amino acid, hydroxyproline. Hydroxyproline is unique in that several of its peptides are not digested completely, which allows them to be detected in your blood. Because of this, they help stimulate collagen synthesis by activating skin, joint, and bone cells.

Collagen is a structural protein responsible for holding cells together and providing structure to the skin. This miracle protein is the secret to a glowing, youthful complexion.

Here are the benefits of taking collagen:

1. Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Our skin structure deteriorates when we lose collagen. Collagen production begins to decline from around 30 years of age, and this is when wrinkles show up.

2. Boosts skin elasticity.

Collagen not only helps to hold skin together but also provides firmness and elasticity. So the more you have in your body, the fewer wrinkles you’ll have. 

3. Prevents and heals skin inflammation.

If you suffer from eczema, acne or psoriasis, listen up! It’s not just an anti-ageing powerhouse; collagen may also help to reduce the frequency and severity of flare-ups in the skin. It features several anti-inflammatory properties such as amino acids, which can help treat inflammation at the source. 

4. Promotes glowing skin  

Dry, dull skin is another pitfall that comes with collagen breakdown. Restoring collagen will help to hydrate and restore skin from within, helping deliver a radiant complexion.

5. and for the body…it boosts metabolism, fortifies hair, skin and nails, relieves joint pain and improves mobility and helps to diminish cellulite 

While no ‘cure’ as such has been found for cellulite, there is definitely merit in helping target the root of it all with collagen. Almost all women will encounter cellulite at some stage in their lives, whether it’s with sudden weight gain, hormonal fluctuation, age or genetics. In short, the reason why cellulite forms in the first place is due to your skin losing elasticity and becoming too thin – which can often be put down to collagen production declining.
