Marine collagen peptide supplements (especially from fish) are all the rage for skin care because of their superior absorption dynamics. The results have been demonstrated in scientific studies and from users of Amino Collagen C worldwide.

Because collagen status plays a role in so many areas of beauty we provided a quick grid of the benefits and recommended collagen dosage, and, how they really work to improve areas of beauty.

Basic Skin Aging

Daily Collagen Dosage: 5-10 g

Results: 31% decrease in collagen fragmentation, and 9% increase in total body collagen density in 12 weeks. Basically “turned back the clock” 2-3 years in only 3 months.


Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Daily Collagen Dosage: 5-10 g

Results: 30 % improvement in 12 weeks


Skin Hydration

Daily Collagen Dosage: 1-5 g

Results: 28%-91% increase in 8 weeks


Nails

Daily Collagen Dosage: 5 g

Results: Improves hardness and smoothness of nails, and reduces nail defects, like ridges.


UV Induced Skin Damage

Daily Collagen Dosage: 10-14 g

Results: Suppressed the decrease in skin hydration caused by sun damage, and supported against collagen breakdown in the skin.

Hair

Daily Collagen Dosage: 5 g

Results: Works to increase hair thickness by 60 days, and also an increase in diameter due to a more active hair follicle.

Varicose Veins

Daily Collagen Dosage: 15 – 20 g

Results: Thought in part due to a decrease in total body collagen, which decreases critical ratio of collagen type in the vein.

Why Collagen Supplements Work

Collagen is a unique and ubiquitous structural protein in the body. Just like we replenish the fluids in our body with water, we can replenish our body’s collagen matrix with the amino acids found in dietary collagen.

The fact is, there is a unique amino acid profile in collagen protein not found in any other protein.  When delivered to the diet in peptide form, these vital amino acids go to work right away in the body. And, marine collagen peptide molecules are so tiny that the body can absorb them almost immediately and use them to stimulate the natural collagen synthesis in your body.

In addition to that, there are real measurable results that have been demonstrated in clinical studies over and over again. Years of research is very clear that consuming collagen peptides can really work to improve skin elasticity, hydration, and smoothness.

For these reasons, we’ve created Amino Collagen C with Hyaluronic Acid. A pure, hydrolyzed marine collagen supplement with no additives or sugars. It’s an excellent way to supply your body with all the beneficial amino acids that collagen has to offer.
