What is Marine Collagen?

Collagen

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, comprising about 30% of the total proteins and serving as a primary building block for skin, joints, bones, muscles, ligaments, blood vessels, and intestinal lining. It is made from amino acids such as proline, glycine, and hydroxyproline in a triple helix structure. Collagen requires essential nutrients like vitamin C, copper, manganese, and zinc for synthesis. Its main function is to provide structure, support, and strength to the tissues, aiding in skin cell growth and repair, providing skin elasticity, and protecting blood vessels. 

What is Marine Collagen? 

Marine Collagen is the collagen derived from marine animal sources such as deep-sea salmon, wild-caught cod, or other fishes that are not endangered. It is collagen derived from fish collagen peptides. Marine Type I collagen is the most bioavailable form of collagen available in the market. 

Major Benefits of Marine Collagen 

Collagen For Skin 

As we age after our 20s, natural collagen levels start depleting, leading to the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and saggy skin. The loss of collagen leads to loss of hydration, elasticity, and skin structure support. Collagen helps maintain the skin's elasticity, suppleness, and youthful tight look. 

Collagen For Bones 

The living tissue forming the bones breaks down and is replaced by new tissues.  As we age, our bones continue to break down and regenerate, but this process happens slowly. Collagen, along with calcium and phosphate forms the core composition of bones, helping to restore the bone mass. It also promotes cartilage and muscle mass. 

Collagen For Hair and Nails 

The scalp is the extension of the skin. The antioxidant properties of collagen help strengthen the hair follicles, thus adding volume to the hair. The amino acids in collagen also help in building nail growth. 

How Much Collagen Should Be Consumed in a Day? 

Knowing how much collagen to consume daily is very essential. Our Korean Marine Collagen is recommended to be consumed once a day, in 8 gm per serving. The bioavailability is also a crucial factor in consuming any collagen supplement. 

Other Sources of Collagen 

There are various major animal sources of collagen, including: 

  • Fish 
  • Shellfish 
  • Chicken 
  • Bone Broth 
  • Meat 
  • Pork rinds 
  • Porcine or pig byproducts 
  • Oysters 

These are all animal sources of collagen, whereas plant-based sources are collagen builders, such as: 

  • Berries 
  • Citrus fruits 
  • Broccoli 
  • Tomatoes 
  • Oranges 
  • Nuts 
  • Bell Peppers 
  • Beans 
  • Whole Grains 

The plant-based sources include nutrients required for collagen synthesis, such as vitamin C, vitamin E, minerals, and amino acids. Hence, the term collagen builders. 

Collagen supplements: Apart from natural sources, there are various marine collagen supplements available in the market. They are highly concentrated, bioavailable, and clean-sourced collagen peptides, that are easily digested and absorbed. Korean marine collagen is one of the best collagen supplements, owing to the promise of Korean Glass Skin. Some of the best collagen supplements for skin also include other bioactives such as vitamin C, E, Glutathione, and hyaluronic acid. 

Conclusion 

Collagen is a very essential protein for the body, especially skin, hair, and nails. The natural collagen synthesis of the body decreases as we age. However, various dietary collagen sources and collagen dietary supplements make up for it.
