The Amazing of Norway Cod Fish Collagen
What is Collagen
Collagen are naturally occurring proteins which has great tensile strength and is the main component of fascia, cartilage, ligaments, tendon, bone and skin. For skin, it is responsible for skin strength and elasticity, it typically moisturizes the skin and helps it appease firmer and smoother. It can also be an effective treatment for arthritis-related pain and inflammation.
Collagen is one-third of the total mass of proteins in our bodies. Collagen makes up 25 percent of the dry mass of our body and 75 percent of the dry mass of our connective tissue. Our body synthesizes collagen continuously. Every year ca. 3 kg of our collagen undergoes degradation while another 3 kg is created. It is synthesized from 20 different amino acids into huge chains made up of 1000 amino acid each. It is a live frame underpinning the tissues of our various bodily organs as skin, bones, genitals, kidneys, blood vessels, heart, eyes, or liver.
In search of lost youth
There may come a time, however, when we run short of collagen. The process of its renewal may be disturbed either when we lose too much of properly built collagen due to stress, disease, UV rays, contact with synthetic chemical substances or other harmful factors, or when its synthesis metabolism process become slow or even stops, which happens when we grow old.
Why are marine collagen peptides unique?
The absorption of marine collagen peptides into the body is proven to be to 1.5 times more efficient than collagen from bovine or porcine sources and their bio-availability is much superior. One of the advantages of fish collagen is that it has a particular high content of the amino acids glycine, proline and hydroxyproline. The amino acids stimulate cells in the skin, bones and connective tissues and leads to the production of new collagen.
Glycine contributes to the synthesis of collagen as well as a variety of other proteins. It can also protect organs and tissues by general inflammatory conditions.
Proline is the precursor of hydroxyproline, which is involved in the formation of collagen, tendons and ligaments. Proline is therefore important in the treatment of osteoarthritis. Proline is depending on vitamin C for the formation of collagen. The proline productions in the body increases for instance with injuries and after exercise where it builds up damaged muscle fibres. This means that marine collagen peptides can be helpful in the restitution phase after exercise.
Hydroxyproline is the hydroxylation of proline and it is depending on vitamin C. Therefore, lack of vitamin C could give unstable collagen molecules and affect collagen in the body.
Several studies have proven the impact of marine collagen peptides on personal appearance and the musculoskeletal system.
Anti-aging effect on human skin
Marine Collagen hydrolysates has an anti-aging effect on human skin. A recent clinical trial demonstrated a significant increase in skin elasticity in a group of women aged 35-55 years (1).
Reducing skin wrinkles
The same group of scientists from the University Of Kiel, Germany, also demonstrated a significant reduction in skin wrinkles after daily consumption of a collagen hydrolysate.
Increasing the skin moisture level
A comprehensive study of the effect of oral collagen peptide supplement on skin-aging involving clinical trials with Japanese and Caucasian women showed good effect on skin moisturisation. The fish collagen peptides were shown to increase the skin moisture level by 12% in a period of 8 weeks. A consistent increase in the skin collagen density over 12 weeks was confirmed by increased dermal echogenicity. Ex vivo studies confirmed the results of the clinical trials and showed an increased amount of water-binding glycosaminoglycans and collagen content in human skin explants incubated with fish collagen peptides.
Protecting hair against chemical damage
In a clinical study with 62 test subjects, fish-derived collagen peptides were shown to have a positive effect on the skin moisture content. The same study documented the transdermal penetration ability of those collagen peptides and showed increased abilities for fish collagen peptides in the range of 3.5-4.5 kDa. in hair, the collagen peptides diffuse into the fibrous hair cells.
Added value for the musculoskeletal system
Products containing active collagen peptides have long been marketed in the US and European pharmaceutical and food markets. Many scientific and preclinical studies show various positive effects on tendon flexibility, ligament stability, muscle and bone integrity and bone metabolism. Another study investigated the effect of specific fish-derived collagen peptides on collagen expression, post-translational modification and mineralisation in an osteoblastic cell culture. Fish collagen peptides were shown to upregulate the gene expression of collagen-modifying enzymes and this effect led to an increased collagen synthesis and positive effects on collagen quality and matrix mineralisation in the osteoblasts.
Another study researched the effects of protein supplements in the form of type 1 collagen peptides in combination with resistance training in older men with sarcopenia. The results showed that, compared with placebo, a collagen supplement in combination with resistance training further improved body composition by increasing the fat-free mass and muscle strength, and reducing fat mass in elderly men with sarcopenia.
Specific collagen peptides proved to significantly increase the expression of collagen types 1 and 3 in fibroblasts from ligaments and tendons of humans. The study concluded that collagen peptides may therefore be an option to treat and prevent changes in ligaments and tendons.
VITAMIN C & E
Study shows that a sufficient intake of Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), is important as it helps the body to make collagen – an important protein in skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels and which supports the growth and repair of tissues and heals wounds. It repairs and maintains bones and teeth, synthesizes neurotransmitters and blocks some of the damage caused by free radicals by working as an antioxidant along with Vitamin E.
For Skin Defense
- Reducing the effects of oxidative stress slows the aging process of the skin.
- Vitamins C and E are the most important antioxidants in skin cells.
For Supple Skin
- Skin moisturization is important for the skin’s barrier function, and is essential for a healthy, youthful-looking skin.
- Vitamin C and E can also support skin hydration
Besides, Sea Cucumber Extract have therapeutic effects such as speeding up wound healing. It does so by facilitating the formation of new tissues within a short time
Meanwhile, Acai Berry has 10 times the antioxidant power of red grapes, has double the antioxidant power of blueberries, and has 10-30 times the anthocyanin of red wine. All the combinations are prefect, natural and essential for skin health and against aging.
