Is there a connection between collagen and digestive health? And is this protein beneficial for the stomach?

We would like to remind you that collagen is essential in the formation of connective tissue of the hair, joints and the mucous membranes of our internal organs. And, like any protein, collagen consists of amino acids.

Studies have shown that collagen - and its key amino acids - can help prevent or reduce ulcers and inflammation.

The amino acid glycine can reduce the secretion of gastric juice and protect the gastric mucosa from ulcers. It can also help increase the absorption of nutrients from food.

The amino acid glutamine protects the walls of the digestive organs from inflammation.

The amino acid proline accelerates wound healing and reduces internal inflammation.

Thanks to its amino acids, the use of marine collagen:

✅ regulates the secretion of gastric juice, preventing its excessive production;

✅ strengthens intestinal and stomach mucosa;

✅ regulates inflammatory processes;

✅ and helps in the formation of new connective tissue.

In addition, collagen's water-loving properties help digestion. As collagen moves through the digestive tract, it attracts water and acid molecules that promote the absorption of other carbohydrates and proteins. Because of this, it is easier for food to pass through the digestive system.

That's why when many of us start using marine collagen, we notice that the functioning of the digestive system improves and any previously unpleasant symptoms decrease or disappear.
