A Source of 95% Protein
Both Men and Women benefit from daily intake of protein and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics as well as the American College of Sports Medicine recommend that athletes consume between 1.2 to 1.7 grams of protein per kilogram body weight per day. For a 140-pound woman, that would be between 76 and 108 grams of protein per day. Benesse Pure Marine Collagen is a clean protein source free of any additives, preservatives, artificial colors or additives.
What is Collagen Peptide?
Discover our Bodies Natural Building Blocks...
The word Collagen is derived from the Greek word “kola” for glue. Collagen has been long regarded as one of our bodies essential internal building blocks. Collagen is the primary protein which is found in the body and more than 90% of the total collagen is comprised of Type I and Type III. Collagen has been determined to be a vital for the elasticity, flexibility and strength of our muscles, bones, ligaments and cartilage. Human collagen is also responsible for the general maintenance of our skin hair and nails as well as our blood vessels, cornea and gut. It has been scientifically proven that collagen peptides, whether orally ingested or topically administered, have positive effects on health and beauty.
The absorption of Marine Collagen peptides into the body is proven to be to 1.5 times more efficient than collagen from bovine or porcine sources and its bio-availability is far superior. One of the advantages of fish collagen is that it has a particularly high content of the amino acids glycine, proline and hydroxyproline. The amino acids stimulate cells in the skin, bones and connective tissues and leads to the production of new collagen.
Glycine contributes to the synthesis of collagen as well as a variety of other proteins. It can also protect organs and tissues by general inflammatory conditions.
Proline is the precursor of hydroxyproline, which is involved in the formation of collagen, tendons and ligaments. Proline is therefore important in the treatment of osteoarthritis. Proline is depending on vitamin C for the formation of collagen. The proline productions in the body increases for instance with injuries and after exercise where it builds up damaged muscle fibers. This means that marine collagen peptides can be helpful in the restitution phase after exercise.
Hydroxyproline is the hydroxylation of proline and it is depending on vitamin C. Therefore, lack of vitamin C could give unstable collagen molecules and affect collagen in the body.
Several studies have proven the impact of marine collagen peptides on personal appearance and the musculoskeletal system.
