The science behind Absolute Collagen
Unfortunately, research shows that collagen levels begin to deplete from the age of 25. By the time we get to 40 we will have lost around a third of our collagen, which can cause our skin to wrinkle and sag.
Collagen is most commonly found in the skin, bones and connective tissue within the body, providing structural support, strength and a degree of elasticity (in combination with elastin). In particular, collagen can be found in the extracellular matrix - an intricate network of macromolecules that determine the physical properties of body tissues.
Collagen is secreted by a variety of different cells, but primarily by connective tissue cells. While young, the body consistently produces collagen but production naturally declines with age, reducing the structural integrity of the skin and leading to the formation of lines and wrinkles and sagging skin.
As the fibroblasts cells responsible for producing collagen naturally decrease due to ageing, the visible signs of ageing become more prominent. In the dermis - collagen helps form a fibrous network, upon which new cells can grow. Collagen is also required for the replacement and restoration of dead skin cells.
Collagen is a major structural protein found inside and outside of our bodies. It is a unique building material composed of amino acids that provide strength and structural support to our skin, hair, nails, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels.
Fish collagen, also known as ‘marine collagen’, is extracted from cold water fish. After manufacturers extract collagen from the fish, they refine it to remove the unpleasant fishy odour and taste while retaining the collagen’s nutritional value.
Marine collagen is bioavailable when ingested. Bioavailability, refers to the rate at which a substance is absorbed into the body when ingested. Marine collagen is absorbed through the intestinal barrier into the bloodstream and then carried throughout the body.
Absolute Collagen founder, Maxine Laceby, explains: “The current younger audiences are all about prevention and are willing to invest, and the older audiences are excited by the health benefits.”
Absolute Collagen’s liquid formula provides you with a high dose of collagen in a concentrated daily dose in a convenient travel-friendly sachet.
Absolute Collagen’s formula is a unique liquid collagen supplement that contains f2000 hydrolyzed marine collagen. Each 10ml serving contains 8000mg of hydrolysed marine collagen. Our advanced formula is also infused with vitamin C, which works synergistically with fish collagen for optimum skin rejuvenation and tissue renewal.
