Explore the Transformative Power of Marine Collagen with HECH

Explore the Transformative Power of Marine Collagen with HECH
Written by Gaia Kakkar



In the realm of skincare and health supplements, the buzz around marine collagen has been making waves. Derived from fish scales, skins, and bones, marine collagen peptides are acknowledged for their numerous health benefits, particularly for their potential to benefit skin health, skin elasticity, wrinkle reduction, hydration and their possible anti-aging properties. But what exactly is marine collagen, and why has it gained such popularity? Let's explore the science behind marine collagen’s efficacy, why it is a superior choice, and why HECH’s marine collagen supplements are the best on the market. 

Understanding Collagen & The Science Behind It 

But first, what is collagen and why is it important? Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, playing a crucial role in maintaining the structure and integrity of our skin, bones, and connective tissues. It's what keeps our skin elastic, our joints flexible, and our bones strong. However, as we age, our body's collagen production declines, leading to visible signs of aging and decreased mobility.

This protein comes in several types, but types I, II, and III are the most common in the human body, supporting skin, bone, and cartilage health, respectively. While we can obtain collagen through diet, specifically by consuming collagen-rich foods or bone broth, the quantity and quality may not be enough to counteract the aging process.

The supplementation market offers collagen derived from various sources, including bovine (cow), porcine (pig), and marine (fish). Each source provides different types of collagen and varies in terms of absorption and effectiveness. 

Marine Collagen: A Superior Choice?

Marine collagen has gained popularity for its bioavailability and sustainability. It's primarily type I collagen, the same type that’s abundant in the human skin, making it particularly effective for skin health. Here’s why marine collagen is considered superior:

  • Higher Bioavailability: Marine collagen has smaller peptides compared to those derived from bovine or porcine sources, making it easier for the body to absorb.
  • Sustainability: Utilizing by-products of the fishing industry makes marine collagen an eco-friendly option.
  • Less Risk of Allergies: Compared to bovine collagen, marine collagen is less likely to cause allergies, making it a safer choice for many.

Research-based Benefits of Collagen Supplementation

Numerous studies have examined the efficacy of collagen supplementation across various health parameters. While individual responses may vary, research suggests promising results in improving skin elasticity, hydration and aging.  

A study by de Miranda et al. (2021) in the International Journal of Dermatology systematically reviews the impact of hydrolyzed collagen supplementation on skin aging. The results from this comprehensive analysis indicate a significant positive effect on skin health, including improvements in skin hydration, elasticity, and an overall reduction in signs of aging. These results underscore the potent anti-aging properties of hydrolyzed collagen, affirming its value in skincare routines aimed at preserving skin vitality.

Marine collagen, in particular, is spotlighted in the study by Rahman et al. (2024) in Marine Drugs. This research explores the therapeutic potential of marine-derived collagen, highlighting its effectiveness in delaying the aging process. The study concludes that marine collagen, owing to its unique properties and high bioavailability, stands out as a superior choice for combatting skin aging. These findings resonate with the growing interest in marine ingredients for their sustainability and potent health benefits.

A crucial piece of collagen research is presented by Asserin et al. (2015) in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology. Their work delves into the effects of oral collagen peptide supplementation on skin moisture and the dermal collagen network. They provide compelling evidence of collagen’s hydrating effects and its beneficial impact on the dermal matrix. This study not only aligns with the hydration and elasticity improvements found in other research but also offers insight into the biological mechanisms underpinning collagen's benefits, enriching our understanding of its role in skincare.

Finally, Kim et al. (2018) contribute their findings in Nutrients on the effects of low-molecular-weight collagen peptides on skin health. Their research confirms the extensive benefits of collagen, showcasing significant advances in skin hydration, elasticity, and wrinkling reduction. Collectively, these studies reinforce collagen's pivotal role in promoting skin health, offering a robust scientific foundation for its use in mitigating the impacts of aging on the skin.
