Premier Marine Collagen
TYPE I COLLAGEN – ESSENTIAL TO TISSUE REPAIR
Accounting for 30% of the body’s total body protein, collagen is the most abundant and ubiquitous protein that works to maintain the structure and function of the skin and connective tissues throughout the body. Healthy skin is the body’s primary barrier to prevent dehydration and potential infection while maintaining moisture and body temperature. Skin elasticity and firmness are dependent on collagen peptides. Visible signs of collagen loss are evident in early adulthood, with the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, as well as slight joint discomfort.
Compared to commercial collagen peptide supplements made from bovine or porcine sources, marine collagen has a low molecular weight and delivers the most predominant type of collagen in the body, type I collagen. Type I collagen provides rigidity, elasticity and strength to skin, tendons, ligaments, bones, teeth, and cartilage.
