Why Marine Collagen

Ingredient Spotlight: Marine Collagen

Welcome to Amazonia’s first Ingredient Spotlight blog! In these series we walk you through popular ingredients, their benefits, characteristics and why we use them in our products.

To start things off, today we’re focusing on Marine Collagen.

What is Collagen

Collagen is one of the main proteins in the human body making up most of our body’s tissues, muscles, bones, skin and hair (1). Collagen production begins to decline from our mid-20s onwards. This leads to our skin gradually losing its elasticity as we age, resulting in an increase in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What is Marine Collagen

There are two main types of collagen sources - bovine and marine. Bovine collagen is sourced from cows, whereas Marine collagen comes from fish. The unique structure of Marine Collagen means it has a lower molecular weight than bovine making it highly bioavailable, which means faster absorption and results. Marine collagen is also comprised of primarily Type I and Type III Collagen, which makes up the majority of our skin. This means that Type I and Type III Collagen is most ideal to support skin firmness and elasticity to help reduce wrinkles. Another major difference between the two sources is that Amazonia Marine collagen is noticeably odourless making it ideal to include into a beauty formula.

Why Marine Collagen?

Regardless of age, everyone wants to maintain smooth, radiant, glowing skin for as long as possible. This is where a high quality, collagen supplement can help. Collagen supplementation assists with promoting smooth, glowing skin with the increased supplies in the body. Other benefits also include assisting with overall gut and digestive health.

Amazonia Raw Collagen Glow 5000 contains 5000mg of Type I and III Marine Collagen with added Vitamin C and prebiotics for a highly bioavailable formula to support youthful, firm skin and skin elasticity. An easy, soluble powder with a subtle wild berry flavour easy to add to water, juice, smoothies, breakfast bowls or your favourite recipes! Amazonia Raw Collagen Glow 5000, is the ultimate beauty powder.
