Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body that holds the whole body together. It comprises 80% of all connective tissues and is found in muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, digestive system, organs and tendons. It’s what gives our skin elasticity and gives our hair, nails and joints strength. Starting in our mid 20s, our bodies start to lose collagen at a rate of 1.5% per annum. Our skin starts to wrinkle, lose its elasticity and youthful radiance. We experience joint pains as we age and our skeletal structure weakens due to the breakdown of connective tissues.
Scientific research has shown that oral intake of hydrolysed collagen can help:
Improve skin elasticity
Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
Strengthen hair and nails
Maintains muscle mass
Improve joint health
Improve immune system
Why marine collagen is a supplement all diabetics should be taking? As we age, our bodies produce less and less collagen every year. Over time, this erosion leads to saggy skin, weaker bones, frail teeth, weaker immune system and slower metabolism. Diabetics lose collagen even faster than non-diabetics as a result of high blood sugar and glycation, in which sugar molecules attach to collagen throughout the body and inhibit its functions. Collagen contains high levels of glycine which has been proven to positively impact insulin secretion and stabilise blood sugar levels. Read: Studies done on Type II Diabetes
WHY LUVOLIFE MARINE COLLAGEN?
Choosing the best collagen depends on where the collagen is sourced from and how it's processed. This determines whether the collagen is able to be absorbed easily by the human body. At LuvoLife, we have researched extensively on the effects of collagen ingestion and have developed a product that's superior to any other collagen you'll find on the market. What makes LuvoLife Marine Collagen more advanced than other collagen brands is that:
Our collagen is sourced from the scales of deep sea red snappers in the Pacific Ocean of Australasia. Collagen from deep sea fish can be absorbed 1.5 times more efficiently than collagen from bovine or porcine sources due to its high bioavailability. This is due to its smaller particle size compared to other types of collagen. The smaller particle size allows an easier and faster transportation of the collagen peptides to the skin, bones and joints for the synthesis of new collagen. Because it is absorbed more efficiently and enters the bloodstream more quickly, it is considered the best source for your skin. It is refined to remove any fishy smells whilst retaining its nutritional value.
Our collagen is Type 1 collagen which accounts for 90% of the collagen in our bodies. There are 19 amino acids (proteins) found in Type 1 collagen, each is essential to the functioning and maintenance of our skin, hair, nails, bones and joints.
What makes LuvoLife Marine Collagen's absorbability even higher than other marine collagen brands is that our collagen peptides is hydrolysed into extremely low molecular weight for optimal absorption. Our collagen can be dissolved easily in either hot or cold liquid.
Our collagen is sourced from the skins of deep sea Codfish from the Alaskan sea using sustainable fishing methods. Our product has been tested by certified food laboratory as safe for human consumption.
