Clinical Study on Seagarden Skin Moisture

Collagen is a fibrous protein and the main component of the skin, connective tissue and bones, contributing to their unique physiological function. Bovine was the main source of collagen until the discovery of Creutzfeld-Jacob disease (CJD) and Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), whose occurrence was associated with prions carried by bovine collagen. The BSE epidemic increased the interest in new sources of collagen, resulting in increased attention towards collagen peptides processed from marine by-products [1]. Type 1 is the most common types of collagen and is the main type in humans. Collagen obtained from marine sources are of type 1, and is produced and organised in cells in skin and connective tissues as well as playing an important role in bone tissue. It is in relation to not only the elasticity and structure of the bone, but also to key processes in bone mineralisation and metabolism [2]. Marine collagen is absorbed up to 1.5 times more efficiently in the body, and the bioavailability is superior to collagen of both bovine or porcine. The smaller particle size in marine collagen compared to other sources allows an easier and faster uptake and transportation of the collagen peptides to the skin, bones and joints for the synthesis of new collagen. The collagen content of the skin is directly related to its density, strength and volume. With advancing age, the ability of the skin to replenish its collagen stores decreases. The stabilising collagen fibres of the skin also lose strength with increasing age and are even partially degraded [3, 4].
