Type I Collagen – Essential to Tissue Repair
Accounting for 30% of the body’s total body protein, collagen is the most abundant and ubiquitous protein that works to maintain the structure and function of the skin and connective tissues throughout the body. Healthy skin is the body’s primary barrier to prevent dehydration and potential infection while maintaining moisture and body temperature. Skin elasticity and firmness are dependent on collagen peptides. Visible signs of collagen loss are evident in early adulthood, with the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, as well as slight joint discomfort.
Compared to commercial collagen peptide supplements made from bovine or porcine sources, marine collagen has a low molecular weight and delivers the most predominant type of collagen in the body, type I collagen. Type I collagen provides rigidity, elasticity and strength to skin, tendons, ligaments, bones, teeth, and cartilage.
Premier Marine Collagen™ utilizes the glycoproteins necessary to help modulate collagen production, strengthen the skin barrier, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and hydrate dry skin.* Supplementing with hydrolyzed marine collagen, coupled with dietary sources of antioxidants (vitamin C) and micronutrients (zinc, copper) delivers bioactive, short-chain nutritional collagen peptides, which support collagen synthesis, in the tissues that need it the most.
Hydrolyzed with food grade enzymes, PRL’s Premier Marine Collagen™ is versatile for everyday use. Tasteless, fully dissolvable, and bioavailable, PRL’s Premier Marine Collagen is ready to be mixed into your favorite morning beverages, juice blends, miso soups, broths and more!
Aside from slowing the inevitable effects of skin ageing, hydrolyzed collagen supplementation is associated with additional beneficial effects.
Mobility Maintenance with Marine Collagen
Collagen production and turnover can become impaired due to a variety of factors. Evidence suggests that hydrolyzed collagen peptides can support healthy joint function which may preserve mobility, comfort aging joints, and help to maintain lean muscle mass.*
Physical stimulation, including weight-bearing exercise, activates fibroblasts, increasing collagen production. In a systematic review of clinical trial outcomes for the use of collagen for joint discomfort due to injuries, muscle soreness, and exercise recovery, doses of 5-10g collagen
peptides daily for over 3-6 months produced moderate benefits in the “pain during activity” parameter.
Stop the Gap in Protein Synthesis
Collagen hydrolysate (CH) has become a preferred form for supplementing with protein-packed collagen peptides. Hydrolyzed collagen peptides are inherently anabolic and provide essential and nonessential amino acids that support healthy bones and connective tissue. Premier Marine Collagen™ delivers an easy to absorb, highly digestible protein enrichment supplement* with minimal calorie content.
Protein requirements vary depending on life stage, genetic predisposition, health condition, and exercise intensity. Premier Marine Collagen™ provides 19 out of 20 amino acids which help maintain lean muscle mass, support workout recovery* while increasing total daily protein intake and improving dietary amino acid balance. Supplementing with Premier Marine Collagen™ could be especially useful for those individuals who have inadequate daily protein intake (due to life stage, exercise intensity, or health condition) or have difficulty digesting animal or legume-derived dietary proteins. It is also paleo and keto friendly.
Hydrolyzed marine collage peptides have a low molecular weight as well as abundant amounts of proline and other necessary amino acids to support the integrity of the intestinal epithelial barrier function (IEBF) by modulating tight junction proteins, reducing gut permeability. Proline, a predominant amino acid in collagen peptides, has been reported to upregulate tight junction proteins in intestinal epithelial cells. Premier Marine Collagen™ may support gut health by providing necessary nutrients to reduce gut permeability.*
Quality Tested & Sustainably Sourced Premier Marine Collagen™ is sustainably sourced from Canada utilizing the skin of wild-caught, deep-sea ocean fish including cod, haddock, and pollock. Thoroughly tested for contaminants including the presence of heavy metals, industrial solvents, and microbial pathogens, our hydrolyzed marine collagen meets high quality standards of The United States Pharmacopoeia (USP), European Pharmacopoeia (EP) and Japanese Pharmacopoeia (JP). Premier Marine Collagen™ offers a pure, unadulterated, heavy-metal tested, antibiotic- and hormone-free alternative to bovine, porcine, and poultry-based collagen products.
PRL’s sustainably sourced, quality tested commitment ensures that Premier Marine Collagen exceeds industry standards, batch to batch, offering the best of what collagen has to offer.
