Collagen is naturally produced in the body and is primarily found in our skin, bones, and connective tissue. It is a protein that makes up one-third of the protein found in our bodies. Marine collagen comes from fish skin and scales. This makes it a type 1 collagen, which is the most abundant in our bodies. Collagen starts to deplete as we age, 1% every year after we hit our mid-twenties.
Hydrolyzed Fish Collagen contains greater amounts of the amino acids glycine and proline than many other proteins. These amino acids are necessary for promoting healthy tissue growth of hair, skin and nails. A recommended dose of 10 grams (2 tablespoons) a day in the diet is optimum.
