Collagen is responsible for the maintenance, strength, and flexibility of healthy bones, joints, skin, tendons, ligaments, hair, nails, blood vessels, eyes and internal organs.
As we continue to grow older, the body's ability to produce collagen becomes slower and slower and collagen levels decline. Collagen is a polypeptide fibrous protein and is a major component of connective tissue and forms strong fiber bundles for cartilage, tendons, bones, and skin to give them structure, rigidity and strength.
That's why when collagen bundles decrease this causes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and saggy skin to become more noticeable.
Creams and lotions may contain marine collagen; as well as bath soaps. Certain hair companies include collagen in their shampoos and conditioners for added shine and thicker hair. But since creams and lotions are applied topical they only give limited results.
The main advantages of a fish collagen supplement as a tablet, powder or a liquid is the supplement is ingested. This gives more beneficial results in less time and helps naturally give the body the food source the cells to manufacture collagen.
When the body has higher levels of collagen present natural cell metabolism is restored and more youthful-looking skin with less visible wrinkles, reduced hair thinning and hair loss occurs. As an added benefit higher levels of collagen helps to boost the lubrication of the joints and overall produces an improved feeling of wellness and vitality.
Higher Collagen levels help improve not only your looks but your energy level too!
