Marine Collagen Powder
Collagen is the most abundant form of protein in our body, providing us with strength, elasticity, tone and structure. It acts like the ‘glue’ that holds the body together. We require it for healthy skin, connective tissues, muscles and bones. Internally, we have 27 different types of collagen. Type 1 Collagen, the most abundantly found collagen type in fish scales and skin, primarily goes towards the health of our hair, skin and nails.
Organika’s Marine Collagen powder is Canadian-sourced. Made from the scales of cod, pollock and haddock, wild caught in the North Atlantic, it is an excellent fish collagen option for pescatarians.
If collagen is so abundant, why would we need to supplement? As we age, our endogenous collagen formation naturally decreases. This can be up to 50% by the time we hit age 45. The more active we are, the more of these collagen peptides we need to heal after exercise and sport. Plus lifestyle choices that promote free radical damage like smoking, chronic stress and chemical exposure from our food, water, and personal care products can use up our collagen faster. All these losses can contribute to signs of premature aging, like fine lines and wrinkles, brittle nails, cellulite and dry skin, as well as joint and ligament issues like injuries, weakness and arthritis.
Collagen also has been shown to increase moisture within the body, like in our skin and joints. It is great for healing the digestive tract and reducing inflammation.
