Marine collagen has both medical and cosmetic benefits. Some of its medical benefits are: it prevents wound deterioration, accelerates the healing process, promotes weight loss when hydrolyzed and suppresses pain in the joints. Its cosmetic benefits include: it reduces wrinkles, improves skin appearance and reduces cellulite appearance.
Collagen forms about 80 percent of the body's connective tissues. Marine collagen is, therefore, crucial in stimulating tissue regeneration and promoting elasticity and mechanical resistance. The satiating power of hydrolyzed collagen plays a crucial role in weight loss and management. Pure marine collagen has an anti-inflammatory effect that reduces swelling and suppresses joint pain.
At the age of 25 the collagen production within the body decreases by approximately two percent. Reduction of collagen within the body causes wrinkles. Marine collagen replenishes the lost collagen, thereby minimizing wrinkles and improving skin appearance.
It also reduces cellulite appearance by promoting the movement of toxins to the lymphatic system. Therefore, if there is enough collagen within the body, toxins will be eliminated, thereby reducing the formation of cellulite in the body. When collagen levels within the body diminish, toxins are prevented from moving to the lymphatic system and they accumulate in the body to form cellulite.
