Marine collagen protects against skin photoaging by repairing skin collagen and elastin protein fibers, improving moisture retention and improving hyaluronic acid content. Although bovine collagen has been shown to improve skin collagen content, it had no significant effect on skin moisture or hyaluronic acid content.
Fish collagen consists of smaller peptides (peptides=pieces of protein) than bovine sources and as a consequence is 1.5 times more easily digested, absorbed and distributed throughout the body. This means your body may benefit more from its anti-aging and tissue-building effects.
Marine Collagen Is Better for the Environment.
Roughly 11.7 million tons of unused fish parts are discarded annually during processing, so using them to make collagen is environmentally friendly. On top of that, fish protein in general releases far less greenhouse gas emissions than most meat products. Although cowhides are abundant byproducts and cheap to produce, their sourcing plays a negative role in climate change.
Marine collagen is sourced from the scales of fish (our collagen is sourced from wild caught, sustainable sources), making it halaal/kosher friendly.
FitForce marine collagen includes vitamin C, as without sufficient vit C your body won’t absorb a collagen supplement effectively.
FitForce marine collagen contains 6000mg of collagen per serving and 1000mg Vitamin C per serving.
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It’s involved in many body functions, including formation of Collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth! Vitamin C is an incredible vitamin for your skin. It improves the skin’s hydration, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and gives your skin a better skin aging appearance.
