The Scoop on Collagen
As we age, our body slows the production of collagen, causing this essential protein to break down. The loss of collagen leads to a collapsing dermal layer, which is why our skin sags and wrinkles; our hair becomes thinner, dull or lifeless; joints stiffen and become less flexible; bones weaken and become brittle; and our body becomes less toned.
With regards to skin, collagen has been shown to help with:
Improve skin moisture level, smoothness and suppleness
Prevent signs of aging such as deep wrinkles, fine lines
Prevent UVB induced skin damage
Marine Collagen is sourced from fish scales. It is a great option for vegetarians who eat fish, but not other meat sources.
Vital proteins collagen peptides are sourced from grass-fed pasture-raised bovine from Brazil.
