Marine collagen is made up of mostly Type I Collagen. Type I collagen is found just about everywhere in the body except for cartilaginous tissue. It is the type of collagen that makes up 70% of our skin and is itself the most abundant collagen in the body, so yes...marine collagen is your skin’s best friend.
Type I collagen may assist with a number of positive processes with your skin. It has been said to help with reversing the aging process and decreasing the prominence of wrinkles and cellulite, to enhancing your skin hydration and firmness.
Because marine collagen is indeed a Type I collagen, it is rich is two particular amino acids: glycine and proline. Glycine is foundational to DNA and RNA strand creation, while proline is foundational to the human body’s ability to naturally produce its own collagen. Considering glycine is vital to our DNA and RNA, it holds many significant functions for the body, including blocking endotoxin and transporting nutrients for body cells to utilize for energy. While proline can act as an antioxidant for the body and can prevent cell damage from free radicals, its number one function is to ensure collagen synthesis by helping in the stimulation of the process within the body.
For the body to build its own type I and III collagen, it needs a ready supply of amino acids like glycine and proline, and there is no better source of these amino acids than Halo's Collagen range.
