Two Islands Marine Collagen Beauty Powder is premium quality and high strength so you notice results. This collagen is sustainably sourced and is a by-product of the fishing industry, that would otherwise go to waste.
Collagen makes up about 75-80% of our skins structure, providing a sort of scaffolding. As we age, our body’s ability to naturally produce collagen declines. From around our mid-twenties, production drops by around 1% per year, with a 30-50% total loss in women by post-menopause. Other factors like smoking, stress, over exposure to sunlight and a poor diet can also cause a decrease in the amount of collagen our body produces.
Consequently, a decrease in collagen leads to wrinkles, dry and sagging skin, thin hair, brittle nails, and can result in joint problems due to weakened cartilage.
During pregnancy & postpartum the body is exposed to increased stress and hormone fluctuations. Collagen can help to reduce the visible effects of stress & even help with that frustrating postpartum hair loss.
Taking a high quality collagen supplement is an easy way to provide your body with collagen peptides. Marine collagen in particular is highly bioavailable, meaning that it is extremely well absorbed in the body. Because of its small particle size, it is 1.5% more efficiently absorbed by the body compared to bovine or porcine derived collagen.
Two Islands Collagen Powders are available in a range of flavours all stocked here at Mom and are water soluble, meaning you can mix into your coffee, tea, smoothie, water or even add it to baking.
