Fast 5: Benefits of Marine Collagen

Fast 5: Benefits of Marine Collagen

Nourish + Repair Revitalising Protein Blend helps to promote collagen formation, which aids in promoting skin smoothness, elasticity, and hydration, as well as helping to strengthen hair and nails.  Nourish + Repair simplifies the process of getting your daily dose of nutrients, so you can make the most out of every moment you’re given.

Promotes Healthy Hair, Skin and Nails

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, responsible for supporting skin elasticity, stronger hair and nails. Studies have shown that the addition of 2.5-5 grams of collagen per day for eight weeks by women aged 35-55 significantly improved skin elasticity and hydration, reducing skin dryness, with virtually no side effects. Each serve of Nourish + Repair Revitalising Protein Blend is specifically formulated to provide 2.5 grams of marine collagen to ensure effective skin elasticity and hydration.

Aids Digestion

When eaten with other proteins or carbohydrates, collagen aids in digestion as a result of the gelatin in collagen that helps to break down foods and help hold water in the intestines where it is needed for cellular repair. Gelatin is most beneficial for improving the lining in the digestive tract while encouraging a healthy inflammatory response. Our Nourish + Repair Revitalising Protein Blend is full of healthy and clean pea protein, around 16 grams per serve, which helps aid digestibility.

Supports Bones and Joints

Collagen has been shown to improve joint health as it replenishes the proteins in ligaments and tendons surrounding joints. Studies have shown that collagen allows the joints to move with ease and can help to promote joint comfort in ageing adults while supporting overall joint strength. 

Contributes to Weight Management

Collagen has been shown to aid in weight management due to its glycine content. Glycine, an important amino acid in collagen, promotes the building of lean muscle mass and helps convert essential nutrients. Glycine has also been shown to help maintain a healthy body as a result of the roles it plays in the digestive and central nervous systems.

Improve Liver Health

Collagen has been proven to be helpful in cleansing the liver of harmful substances as glycine helps repair damage your liver experiences when it absorbs foreign substances, toxins or alcohol that shouldn’t be passing through it.
