One serving of the supplement Jarrow Fish Collagen provides 5 g of hydrolysed peptides of fish collagen type 1, which is the main building material of connective tissue in the human body system. It promotes general improvement in condition of i.a. bones, tendons and skin.
Collagen is the main protein building connective tissue in the body system, which constitutes a quarter of proteins content in the human body. It is made of amino acids – glycine, hydroxylysine, hydroxyproline and proline, and there are 8 different types of collagen. The supplement by JARROW contains 5 g of type 1 collagen, the most common one in the body system, which is present mainly in the tissues forming scars, connective tissue of bones, in tendons and subcutaneous tissue. It is responsible mainly for tensile strength of tissues (elasticity), their integrity and bone stiffness.
The natural biosynthesis of collagen in the body system declines with age. The results of deficiencies include mainly deterioration of skin elasticity (wrinkles, sagging skin), nails condition and many problems with the osteo-articular system. Supplementation with collagen can delay those symptoms and alleviate their effects. Collagen is also of great importance for athletes who burden their joints much more intensive that people who are not physically active. Studies demonstrate that collagen supplementation not only complements deficiencies, but also stimulates the body system to produce it by itself.
Why fish collagen?
The component is obtained mainly from two sources – from fishes and breeding animals (pouldry, cows and pigs). Usually, because of higher availability and lower acquisition costs, supplement manufacturers use the collagen from the second source. However, it is hard to get pure and active protein in this way. The organisms of breeding animals do not excret dead collagen cells, which makes it harder to get the living ones. In turn, the process of collagen exchange in fish organism takes place continuously; dead cells are exchanged for the new ones. This process resembles the process which takes place in the human body system, which makes fish collagen much more bioavailable and effective than collagen from any other source.
Support for bones and tendons
Collagen constitutes about 90% of human bones. It is responsible for their stiffness, mineralisation and resistance to fractures. Positive influence of collagen on the skeletal system results from its ability to stimulate osteoblasts (blood-froming cells) and increase their mineral density, which makes them more resistant to mechanical injuries. Because of that, supplementation with type 1 collagen is especially recommended for elderly people who are exposed to the risk of osteoporosis because of their age.
Type 1 collagen is also the main building material of tendons. It is responsible for their elasticity and proper tensile strength. Collagen supplementation contributes to the protection of tendons from damage or rupturing, especially when they are highly burden during any physical activity. Collagen provided in form of a supplement supports post-traumatic regeneration, as it stimulates the body system to the endogenous production.
Healthy skin, hair and nails
Type 1 collagen is crucial for maintenance of the proper condition of skin, hair and nails. It is one of the core elements of the subcutaneous tissue, positively affects skin thickness, which is why it is responsible for elasticity, firmness, tension and texture. This directly results in a slow down of ageing and reduction in the most visible symptoms – wrinkles, dryness and sagging skin. It accelerates wound healing and reduces the risk of unaesthetic, thick and inelastic scars. Collagen supplementation reduces also the risk of stretch marks, which is why it is recommended for people who are building muscle mass and for pregnant women.
Apart from that, collagen improves condition and thickness of hair. It restores also nail plates, which is why supplementation is a good solution for people who are struggling with weak and brittle nails.
Essential for elderly people and athletes
Because of the above described properties, collagen supplementation is recommended especially for elderly people and people who burden their joints with physical activity. Natural production of this protein essential for the body system declines with age and at the age of 60 it contitutes only 50%. Exogenous collagen will slow down ageing of skin and minimise the risk of ailments typical for the old age and problems with the osteo-articular system. It will positively affect condition of hair and nails.
In case of physically active people, who intensively burden their joints and tendons, there is an increased demand for collagen. Natural production and small amounts provided with food are not enough to provide the optimal supply necessary for continuous regeneration and maintenance of the proper condition of tendons and bones. Collagen supplementation is perfect protection against tendon damage or rapture as well as supports post-traumatic regeneration.
Collagen and growth hormone
Few people know that scientific studies demonstrated the influence of collagen proteins on the stimulation of the body system to produce growth hormone (GH). In the controlled group consuming collagen, the release of the hormone was much bigger than in case of groups consuming soy or milk proteins. It is another strong argument for the use of collagen both for anti-ageing purposes and for shape sports.
To sum it all up, the supplement Fish Collagen is valuable support for the osteo-articular system, hair, skin and nails. The highly available form of the protein ensures maximal benefits from its use. The supplement is especially recommended for elderly and physically active people, women who care about the appearance and condition of their skin as well as for people being at risk of bone or joint disorders.
Type 1 collagen is the best support for elderly and physically active people; these people should consider using the supplement in their diets. You should remember that in some cases the collagen alone can be insufficient and it is worth to combine its use with other supplements.
People who want to support their joints, tendons and bones should consider complementing their supplement complex with type 2 collagen, glucosamine, vitamins C and D3, MSM and calcium. In turn, if you want to make use of the positive influence of collagen on hair, skin and nails, you should combine it with supplements containing hyaluronic acid and vitamins A and E.
It is worth to remember that products containing proteins (including protein boosters) inhibit collagen absorption. Because of that, it is recommended to take the supplement on an empty stomach, 30–60 minutes before a meal (with the same time interval after the last one). You should not combine supplements containing collagen with protein boosters. Positive effects can be observed already after a few weeks of regular supplementation.
