Beautiful skin is the basis of a flawless complexion. Skin must be strong and resilient to withstand the daily wear-and-tear it endures but it is also soft and delicate. It can be both, given the correct nutrition and care. Collagen is an important protein that provides structure for every cell and organ in our body. Cartilage and tendons in the joints depend on collagen to be strong and flexible and even bones contain collagen. Natural collagen supplements are a good source of nutrition for radiant skin, in fact collagen makes-up the basic building blocks of our skin, hair and nails.
Collagen is necessary for the: appearance and integrity of smooth skin, heart health and cardiovascular function, the maintenance of tendons and cartilage in joints, physical performance, vitality and well-being. Essentially, everything you do depends on the connective properties of collagen to literally hold your body together.
Skin of all ages needs to be cleansed and nurtured to look its best, but once we get over the age of 25, our collagen production slows and the regeneration of our skin cells diminishes. From this age the main concerns are the stimulation of new collagen production and inhibition of the breakdown of existing collagen fibres. Research has shown that the presence of extra collagen peptides in the skin can reduce the rate at which the collagen fibres are broken down by the activity of an enzyme called collagenase. This enzyme is a normal component of skin and helps to stop the epidermis (the outer-most layer) from becoming too thick and tough. DBH Marine Collagen can nourish skin and improve its complexion by controlling the rate of skin renewal.
DBH Marine Collagen contains high quality collagen protein with added Vitamin C to assist with the production of collagen within the body. When collagen fibres are laid down in the skin the process requires vitamins and minerals to ensure that it is smooth and consistent. When these nutrients are not present the type of collagen produced is inconsistent and weak, and so more prone to tearing and scarring. In addition to being an antioxidant, Vitamin C is required to produce consistently strong and smooth collagen fibres.
