Collagen is one of the most popular ingredients in skincare products and has risen to become a dietary supplement, and people’s excitement about consuming this protein will not disappear soon. With the continuous deepening of research on the benefits of consuming collagen, the optimal source of collagen has also become controversial. At present, the high voice is marine collagen.
So, what is marine collagen?
Marine collagen is a fibrous protein extracted from the scales or skin of saltwater fish, including cod and salmon. In recent years, preliminary animal and clinical studies have found that this collagen protein has medicinal properties that promote human health and well-being. Marine collagen products have been widely used in the Far East and are now becoming more common on health product shelves in the West.
What are the health benefits of marine collagen?
1.Slow down the aging process
Marine collagen has antioxidant properties and has been applied in skincare products to prevent or even repair environmental factors such as ultraviolet radiation and low humidity, as well as damage related to the aging process. Researchers from the School of Public Health at Peking University in China conducted a study on the effect of collagen peptides in aged mouse skin. The research results were published in the Chinese Journal of Preventive Medicine. In April 2008, researchers reported that the skin epidermis of experimental animals orally treated with marine collagen peptides significantly thickened compared to the control group of mice. The researchers also reported a significant increase in the number and activity of fibroblasts in the skin of mice treated with marine collagen. Fibroblasts play a crucial role in the formation of new connective tissue, such as skin.
2.Promotes quality sleep.
The most abundant amino acid in marine collagen, glycine, has promising sleep-supporting perks.* One review of research revealed that ingestion of glycine before bed helped maintain satisfactory levels of self-perceived sleep quality.* It also suggested that glycine may help maintain core body temperature, which is associated with better sleep.* Erratic spikes and dips in blood sugar can also interfere with quality sleep, while marine collagen (which often contains around 10 grams of protein per serving) can help maintain normal levels.*
3.Promotes gut health.
Everything from too much stress to a poor diet has the potential to damage the delicate tissues lining the intestines. This contributes to “leaky gut,” a condition in which foreign particles are able to enter your bloodstream and wreak havoc on your body, increasing inflammation and your risk for autoimmune diseases. The good news: Not only is marine collagen easily digestible, but it may help support your gut, thanks to its amino acid profile.
