Use Collagen For Skin and Bone Health In Menopause.

Karen Fitzpatrick-Dame, ChhC, AADP
When we start going through Menopause, we begin to lose collagen in the skin. In fact, within the first 5 years of menopause, we lose 30% of collagen in our skin.  So how can you improve the appearance of your skin and collagen levels?
A study from PubMed looked at skin anti-aging using Marine Collagen Peptides in subjects both before using Marine Collagen Peptides and 2 months after.
The findings:
  • The supplementation with Marine Collagen Peptides remarkably improved skin elasticity, sebum production, and dermal ultrasonic markers.
  • Metabolic data showed significant increase of plasma hydroxyproline and ATP storage in erythrocytes.
Marine Collagen Peptides was shown to be an effective and safe supplement to improve skin properties without risk of oxidative damage.
The National Library of Medicine also conducted a study using Marine Collagen for not only skin health, but wound healing and bone health, specifically osteoporosis and osteo arthritis.
The study showed a significant impact on osteoporosis prevention and treatment by increasing bone density and mineral deposition is also evident using Marine Collagen. Bone-related diseases such as osteoporosis and osteo arthritis can negatively impact one’s quality of life. Marine collagen and its derivatives were shown to delay and protect against both osteoporosis and osteo arthritis and, thus, reduce mortality outcomes.
Consider DesBio Liposomal Marine Collagen which offers the most effective delivery and absorption for the body.
