I discovered Col Du Marine™ marine collagen about a year ago and have been using it periodically to maintain my health. This marine collagen contains Type I and III collagen. In my experience, prolonged use of collagen has led to healthier hair growth, reduced skin dryness, and improved complexion.

Collagen is a structural protein in the body, responsible for the condition of skin, hair, nails, teeth, bones, tendons, ligaments, joints, connective tissues, and muscles, making up to 35% of the body's total protein. It is also found in our organs, blood vessels, and the lining of the intestines.

Collagen peptides are absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract, so maintaining the health of the gastrointestinal tract and the state of our microbiome is very important.

The body actively produces collagen until around the age of 20-25, but after that, the process slows down, and the body loses about 1-1.5% of its collagen each year. Factors that reduce collagen levels in the body include smoking, excessive sun exposure, and an unhealthy diet, especially the consumption of large amounts of sugar and refined carbohydrates.

It is important to note that with an unhealthy, unbalanced diet, the beneficial effects of taking collagen will be less noticeable. Collagen is a type of protein, so to achieve the best results, it is necessary to consume enough protein daily. Additionally, remember to drink plenty of fluids and eat vegetables, fruits, berries, and other healthy foods.
