High Grade Hydrolized Collagen
Collagen is one of the most important structural constituents in our bodies,
representing 1/15 of our total body weight. This fiber-shaped protein plays
an extremely important role in ensuring the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration
of skin, bones, tendons, ligaments and skeletal muscles.
As we age, our body loses its ability to make collagen, thus, it starts to break down.
This is why skin sags and wrinkles: hair becomes thinner, dull, or lifeless; joints are
stiffer and less flexible; and bodies become softer and have less tone. Diet, age,
stress, digestive system, and physical activity all affect our ability to provide the
body with the nutritional raw materials it requires.
Supplementing with collagen protein is believed to provide the body with the amino
acids necessary to manufacture and support collagen in order to remain healthy and
Fish Collagen Peptides
At Nippi Collagen NA Inc., we offer collagen peptides extracted through a complex hydrolysis process. To provide the highest quality possible, we produce collagen type I extracted from fish scales and skin, presenting unmatched advantages. TruMarine™ Collagen is free from risk of animal diseases or pathogens such as Bovine Spongiforms Encephalopathy (BSE).
Fish Collagen – Type I is the most abundant of the many types of Collagen and are found in bones, tendons, skin and tissues. Studies support that collagen peptides type I extracted from fish consist of small peptide molecules that have a superior bioavailability and digestibility compare to other collagen products. Due to smaller molecular weight, it is absorbed at a higher level through the intestinal barrier into the bloodstream and carried throughout the body, leading to the collagen synthesis in the joint tissues, bones and skin dermis.
Fish collagen peptides are also characterized by their specific amino acid composition, with a high concentration of glycine, proline and hydroxyproline. These amino acids have nutri-functional properties supporting health and beauty.
Hydroxyproline peptides such as Pro-Hyp or Hyp-Gly stimulate cells in the skin, joints and bones, and leads to collagen synthesis through cell activation, suppression and growth. In particular, the amount of Hyp-containing peptide such as in the fish scale is significantly higher after ingestion than in any other form of collagen and can be detected in the blood.
