We all know that collagen improves the health and appearance of our skin, but it also does an outstanding job and reducing joint pain.
Collagen plays a critical role in joint and bone health. It’s the main component in bone tissues, tendons, ligaments and cartilage. Collagen brings both strength and flexibility to these tissues and is vital for their smooth and pain-free function. As we age our body's collagen production declines which can eventually result in joint deterioration. Supplementation with Canadian marine collagen can bring significant improvements in joint function and pain reduction.
When our joints are working normally, we can enjoy an active lifestyle without restrictions. But with wear and tear, or the onset of osteoarthritis, our joints begin to break down – the cartilage thins and deteriorates, and joints become inflamed and painful. This type of pain causes us to limit our activity and curtail the way we live our lives. Collagen can help with this!
DeepMarine’s collagen relieves pain and increases joint mobility in two ways - by reducing inflammation and enhancing the health of our joint tissues.
Collagen peptidesstimulate our own special collagen-producing cells called fibroblasts which are located in our cartilage and connective tissues. They work as an initiator in assisting fibroblast to synthesize new collagen fibres and also rejuvenate existing collagen fibres by improving their thickness and increasing their density. The result is an increase in the tissue’s durability and enhanced mechanical strength of the cartilage.
Marine collagen also reduce chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation can cause deterioration of joint tissues and collagen helps with this. Marine collagen works by calming the immune system’s inflammatory response. This helps to reduce the body’s expression of inflammatory cytokines which reduces the inflammation that makes joints stiff and painful.
Supplementing with DeepMarine’s hydrolyzed collagen makes the cartilage stronger and more durable and also acts and an anti-inflammatory to reduce inflammation in joints and improve smooth, more pain-free functioning.
Health Canada recognizes marine collagen for its ability to help to reduce joint pain associated with osteoarthritis. It is also identified as a source of essential and non-essential amino acids which maintain health and are involved in protein synthesis.
