10 Frequently Asked Questions
1.) When Will I See Results?
Once you start to take Benesse Marine Collagen on a daily basis, you should expect to feel and see results within 6 to 8 weeks; however after 5 months of continual use, you will see and feel the full benefits of our product. Benesse Collagen is 100% naturally derived protein with absolutely no additives; however, If you are taking supplements and/or prescription drugs, we recommend consulting your doctor and nutritionist.
2.) What is Hydrolyzed Marine Collagen?
When collagen is hydrolyzed, the protein molecules are broken into smaller molecules. Hydrolyzed Marine Collagen supplements are more easily digested and absorbed by your body than other types derived from animals. Many “Marine” sources are from undisclosed sources and may be derived from warm water fish species, shellfish and jellyfish. Benesse Hydrolyzed Marine Collagen is derived from a single sustainable source of 100% deep sea cod skin.
3.) How does the Consumption of Collagen actually work?
Benesse Marine Collagen has a low molecular weight which makes it highly bio-available with a rapid rate of absorption. Ingested Marine Collagen is distributed through the body and to the dermis blood vessels which actively stimulate fibroblast proliferation. Fibroblast are the cells which are responsible for the regeneration of our connective tissues. Increasing the density of fibroblast cells in-turn increases our bodies natural production of collagen and also increases skin elasticity.
4.) Does Marine Collagen contain Amino Acids?
Hydrolyzed collagen contains 8 out of 9 essential amino acid including glycine and arginine which are the two amino acid precursors necessary for the biosynthesis of natural creatine. In total, Hydrolyzed Marine Collagen contains 19 amino acids and has a particularly high content of the amino acids glycine, proline and hydroxyproline, which together represent around 50% of the total amino acid content. These amino acids stimulate cells in the skin, bones and connective tissues and leads to the production of new collagen in our body.
5.) Is the consumption of Marine Collagen safe?
Yes. Benesse Marine Collagen is a 100% natural supplement and contains no additives, preservatives or any other ingredients. Benesse Marine Collagen is Health Canada Reviewed. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, consult a health care practitioner prior to use. If you have liver or kidney disease or if you have been instructed to follow a low protein diet, consult a health care practitioner prior to use. Our product has an expiry date of three (3) years.
6.) Can I take Marine Collagen if I am already taking other supplements?
Yes, it is safe to take with other supplements. Marine Collagen is intended as a diet supplement and is not intended as diet replacement and should accompany a balanced diet and an exercise routine to support healthy skin, hair and joints.
7.) Will Marine Collagen help alleviate joint pain?
“Benesse Pure Marine Collagen is a source of the essential amino acids histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, valine which promote the maintenance of good health and involved in protein synthesis. Benesse Marine Collagen is a source of the essential amino acid lysine to help in collagen formation and helps to reduce joint pain associated with osteoarthritis”
8.) Is the fish sustainably sourced and are there certificates on quality and manufacturing?
Benesse Health obtains high quality wild caught raw materials from sustainable fishing stocks and is MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) approved which guarantees that the product comes from sustainable sources. We recognize that many fish species are near to extinction due to over-fishing and there is a limit to the biological resources of the ocean and how much can be sustainably harvested. All manufacturing takes part in the Responsible Sourcing Audit program, SMETA 4 Pillars. Our product is derived from 100% Natural Marine Ingredients through FSSC 22000 Certified Manufacturing and is ISO 22000 certified.
9.) Does Marine Collagen support the development of muscle tissue?
Collagen is the primary structural protein that help the body to maintain its strength and flexibility, and is found mostly in the dermis, bones, cartilage and tendons. Collagen the largest source of protein in humans which makes up approximately 25-35% of the protein in the body. (7. Marcus 1996). Collagen has a natural protein which has a direct correlation with the development of muscle. As our bodies increase muscle mass, we also increase our metabolism which supports a virtuous cycle of fat loss.
10.) What is the difference between Collagen and Collagen Peptides?
Collagen is large primary structural protein in our body where Collagen Peptides are a hydrolyzed form of collagen which are comprised of shorter peptide chains. The enzymatic hydrolysis process makes the Collagen Peptides water-soluble and the molecules become smaller making it easier for the body to absorb. Collagen Peptides provide the necessary amino acids for the development of connective tissues and the intake of collagen peptides can stimulate and boost the body’s own ability to produce collagen.
