Marine Collagen Caps Formula
Alpha Prime Supps is dedicated to helping you reach your prime, which is why our collagen capsules do not include any filler or unnecessary ingredients. Each capsule is made with gelatin and magnesium stearate, but the only active ingredient is deep-sea collagen. Here’s a closer look at what you get with each serving.
Deep-Sea Hydrolyzed Marine Collagen Peptides (1,500 mg)
Our deep sea hydrolyzed marine collagen peptides come from the scales of white fish. Collagen is a protein found throughout your body and the bodies of other animals.
Both bovine and marine collagen help support the health of your hair, skin, nails, and joints. However, marine collagen offers greater bioavailability and faster absorption. Our peptides are also hydrolyzed, which means that they are broken down to help with digestion.
Why does your body need collagen? Collagen is a type of protein and the main compound found in your connective tissues, which includes your ligaments, tendons, skin, and muscles. It gives structure to your hair, skin, nails, arteries, and more.
Your body naturally produces collagen. You also get collagen from certain foods, as collagen is found in the tissues of animals. Chicken, beef, and fish are all common food sources of collagen. Yet, most foods only contain a small amount of this important protein.
Your body also needs to break down the collagen in food into peptides and amino acids. Our marine collagen caps include 1.5 grams of collagen. It is already broken down for increased digestibility and absorption.
Healthy Skin and Hair
Adding more collagen to your diet may boost the health of your skin and hair. It is a necessary component for maintaining elasticity and hydration in your skin. It also builds hair proteins and strengthens the skin that supports your hair roots.
Promote Joint and Bone Health
Collagen is also beneficial for your joint and bone health. As your body produces less collagen with age, you gradually increase your risk of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.
Your joints are protected by a rubber-like tissue called cartilage. Cartilage gradually breaks down with age, which leads to joint pain. Supplying your body with more collagen helps maintain the strength and health of the cartilage, decreasing the risk of degenerative joint issues, such as osteoarthritis.
Collagen and calcium are the two primary compounds in your bones. Naturally, a lack of collagen leads to a lack of bone mass. Bone loss increases your risk of injuries and may decrease your mobility. Supplying more collagen to your bones helps boost bone mineral density (BMD) and may prevent bone loss.
Protect Your Heart
Collagen is responsible for many things, including adding structure to your arteries. Without collagen, you would struggle to keep blood flowing from and to your heart. Collagen helps keep your arteries strong and healthy, which may promote better heart health.
Collagen may also improve cholesterol ratios by protecting the arteries. It is known to help decrease total cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
Boost Muscle Mass
One of the more intriguing benefits of collagen is its effect on your muscles. Collagen may promote protein synthesis, which is an essential part of gaining muscle. It may support the synthesis of creatine, helping you boost your athletic performance and gain more lean body mass.
