Why Fish Collagen Peptide?
Fish, collagen is sourced from discarded fish bones, skin and scales. It is rich in Type 1 collagen, proline, and glycine.
Studies have shown that fish collagen peptides are smaller, giving them superior bioavailability and digestibility. The bioavailability of fish collagen is 1.5 times higher compare to other sources Therefore, there is potential for you to see results faster.Since it's easier to digest, fish collagen is excellent if you have digestive issues or if you're using collagen specifically to heal your gut. Not to mention, the enhanced absorption also makes it easier for your body to flood your skin and joints with more of the anti-aging and bone-building molecules.
Fish collagen may prove to be one of the best types to take, especially if you follow a high-antioxidant diet filled with colorful fruits and veggies. One study showed that participants taking fish collagen combined with antioxidants for just two months showed remarkable improved skin elasticity, moisture, and dermal ultrasonic markers. These results could be due to the fact that fish collagen also contains higher levels of a certain amino acid, hydroxyproline. Hydroxyproline is unique because several of its peptides are detected in our blood after collagen consumption. Because of this, they help stimulate collagen synthesis by activating skin, joint, and bone cells.

Land animals have a higher risk of contamination through hormones and diseases. Outbreaks of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE), and foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) have increased the health concerns regarding the use of collagen and collagen-derived products from terrestrial animals in recent years.
