This powerful nutricosmetic Fish Collagen + HA is enhanced with Hyaluronic Acid and minerals to promote beauty from within. By supplementing with collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA) this powerful synergistic team focuses on the regenerating effects for skin and connective tissue health. In the body collagen and HA are almost always found together; collagen provides the mechanical strength for connective tissues and HA with its ability to bind enormous amounts of water serves to lubricate these same tissues providing necessary hydration and reduction in friction. Hyaluronic acid is a protein that is generated naturally within our body and is more concentrated in areas that endure increased movement or have a higher fluid component such as the eyes ears heart and joints and even the skin. As we age production of this important moisturizing lubricant slows resulting in wrinkles joint pain and other connective tissue complications. Collagen functions as the strong fiber that weaves throughout the body for strength and support to literally hold the body together. As we age the body’s ability to make collagen protein and its different complexes slows down. This is important since collagen makes up around 70% of our skin and is 30% of our total protein content the most abundant protein in our body’s with 29 known collagen types at this point. The hydrolyzed collagen type 1&3 in Fish CollagenTM + H.A. helps with flexibility and strength to nourish and support collagen in tendons ligaments hair skin nails while increasing lean muscle potentially assisting in weight control. 90% of the body’s total collagen content is made of collagen type 1 and 3! The two key amino acids specific only to collagen especially important to collagen production are hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine which are not regularly found in amino acid supplements. Fish CollagenTM + H.A. type 1&3 genetically parallels the amino acid structure of our own body’s collagen and connective tissues. Persons taking collagen will experience 90% absorption into the blood stream within four hours where cellular changes occur and using hydrolyzed collagen allows for maximum absorption due to its lower molecular weight. With daily supplementation of Fish CollagenTM + H.A. this potent synergistic pair focuses on the lubrication of joints protection of the retina in eyes as an aide in prolonging smooth and youthful looking skin and connective tissue health.
