4 real reasons why marine collagen is better than bovine collagen for your skin

Marine Collagen

So, the wrinkles and fine lines are starting to show up and those aches and pains are a little more noticeable today. You’ve googled and you know that collagen is the solution to almost everything. 

Now it's time to decide…. Bovine or Marine?  That is the question. 

From our early 20’s our bodies start producing 1,5% less collagen per year. So by 40 you are almost 25% down! This drastic decline in collagen production can be attributed to the symptoms we think are just part of “aging” such as achy joints, fine lines, thinning hair, digestion issues and saggy skin

The good news - science shows that supplementing collagen can help.

Here's the top 4 reasons Marine Collagen can get you looking like a 21 year old again. 

1. Marine Collagen does all the skin things

Collagen is the structural basis for healthy, youthful-looking skin. By replenishing and supporting the body’s natural collagen stores helps skin maintain its structural integrity and supports skin's hydration, firmness, and elasticity.

2. Marine Collagen = #skingoals

What makes Marine collagen the foundation for strong and glowing skin?  

Thats a pretty bold claim right, well it's backed. 

Marine collagen is primarily contains Type I collagen, which is 85% of our skin collagen and the building blocks of our skin’s structure. 

The majority of other animal collagen derived from bovine is Type II collagen, which can be beneficial for joints, but doesn’t really help your skin much. 

Marine collagen has superior bio-availability which means it is up to 1.5 times more absorbent than bovine, because of its optimum (low) molecular weight and smaller peptides.

In short, Marine collagen is the right type of collagen (Type I&III) needed for the building blocks of our skin.

3. Need a metabolism boost? 

A boost in collagen may help improve metabolism by adding lean muscle mass to your frame and helping with the conversion of essential nutrients to pure protein. 

Marine collagen does not contain any carbs, sugar or fat. Daily intake of marine collagen may help to suppress appetite by keeping you feeling full for longer therefore promoting weight loss

4. Say goodbye to aches and pains

Better joint function and less pain as collagen collects in the cartilage. Collagen supplements have been shown to help the symptoms of osteoarthritis. It's like lubrication for your joints. Taking fish collagen could help decrease pain and improve your joint mobility.
