Fish collagen, pure marine collagen
What is Marine Collagen?
Collagen is the natural protein in our bodies which gives skin its elasticity and plumpness, supports muscles and joints and gives you a general sense of wellbeing.
How does it work?
As we become older the natural production of collagen slows down and we notice this by the first signs of ageing in our faces or aches in the joints. Marine collagen has been found to be the closest to our own natural collagen and is taken as a supplement to replace these depleted stocks.
Used To Treat
Signs of ageing such as wrinkles and crows feet, sore and aching joints, organ health and to improve circulation.
Is a renowned anti-ageing product
How to take/dosage
There are varying strengths of marine collagen available so follow the dosage advice on the packaging.
Possible side effects
Too much collagen can result in diarrhoea or stomach cramps
No known interactions
Little research has be done into taking marine collagen when pregnant or breastfeeding so consult your doctor before taking it.
Things to note
While marine collagen is widely used there is little scientific evidence to suggest how well it actually works in the battle against ageing.
