Hva er kollagenpeptider?

Naturlige kollagenpeptider har etterhvert fått mer og mer oppmerksomhet og interesse for sine unike ernæringsmessige virkninger. Likevel er det dessverre ikke alltid like enkelt å skille mellom hva som er seriøse og veldokumenterte «kollagenprodukter» og hva som ikke er det. Man kan likevel få mye informasjon ved selv å sjekke produktenes innholdsdeklarasjon for både innholdsstoffer og mengde.

Marine Matrix® Oppstartseske inneholder 30 poser med hele 5000mg bioaktive kollagenpeptider per pose. Marine Matrix® Vedlikeholdseske inneholder 30 poser med 2500mg per pose. Enkelte «kollagenprodukter» som tilbys på markedet inneholder så lite som 50mg per kapsel, ofte i form av «vanlig» ikke-bioaktivt kollagen.  Èn pose Marine Matrix® Oppstartspakke tilsvarer altså 100 kapsler á 50mg!

Kollagen, gelatin og kollagenpeptider – hva er forskjellen?

Hverken «vanlig» kollagen eller gelatin er bioaktive næringsmidler, dvs. at de ikke har noen form for dokumentert virkning på hudens kollagenbalanse.

Kollagen er store proteinfibre som finnes naturlig i kroppens bindevev. En ung og sunn hud består av hele 80% kollagenfibre. Når kollagen varmebehandles dannes gelatin, som er et annet navn på delvis nedbrutt kollagen.

Marine Matrix® inneholder bioaktive kollagenpetider som fremstilt via en helt spesiell bioteknologisk prosess hvor langkjedet naturlig kollagen er enzymatisk spaltet ned til forhåndsbestemte korte kollagenpeptider med spesifikk aminosyresekvens. Disse kollagenpeptidene absorberes raskt i kroppen slik at de når hudcellene i de dypere lagene hvor de er dokumentert å øke hudens spenst/elastisitet* og redusere rynkedannelse** og cellulitter***.

3 Great Benefits of Marine Matrix Kollagenpeptider

1 – Liquid Collagen for Skin

Collagen is a vital protein for skin, as it provides elasticity. As a result of environmental factors as well as aging, the skin naturally loses elasticity over time, which shows in wrinkles and stretch marks. But the regained elasticity provided by ingesting liquid collagen stretches out the skin, clearing wrinkles and making the skin plump and firm. This leaves skin looking radiant, healthy, and ultimately younger, countering one of the major visible signs of aging.

Additionally, studies have also shown that hydrolysed liquid collagen helps keep the skin hydrated and smooth, stimulating skin repair and regeneration.
Collagen also helps with cellulite, which is the name given to the layer of fat right beneath the skin that forms dimples on the thighs, hips, and tummy. Although cellulite is a common feature, and is both natural and harmless, many people wish to reduce the appearance of cellulite and find that collagen does a great job of this by smoothing out the surface of the skin.

2 – Liquid Collagen for Hair and Nails

Hair follicles and nail beds contain collagen that gives hair and nails their strength, so it makes sense that collagen deficiency is partly to blame for brittle nails and dry, weak hair. Adding collagen to your diet can help rejuvenate the health of your nails and hair, as well as help both grow faster. In fact, our very own hair expert, Trichologist Eva Proudman, carried out a perception trial which demonstrated that hair condition improved over 12 weeks for 100% of trial participants, with benefits noted in hair texture and condition, hair loss, and overall scalp health.

Studies also back the effect of collagen on nail health and growth, too. Ingesting collagen peptides was shown to increase nail growth by 12% and reduce instances of nail breakage by 42% in a study of 25 participants over 24 weeks.

3 – Marine Matrix supports healthy joints

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body and a major constituent of muscle. Increasing your collagen levels provides the body with sufficient muscle-building raw material to grow muscle mass and repair worn out muscle tissues, and this can explain the popularity of collagen supplements with fitness enthusiasts. In addition to muscle building, glycine-rich collagen accelerates the synthesis of creatine that provides muscles with energy, another significant fitness, and exercise-based benefit.

Daglig inntak av spesifikke kollagenpeptider i en dobbelblindet, randomisert og placebokontrollert observasjonsstudie på 105 kvinner med moderat grad av cellulitter viser signifikant reduksjon av cellulitt score på lår etter 12 uker. Samme kliniske studie viser også en signifikant økning av dermal density etter 6 måneder. Schunck M, et al.
