Revive Collagen uses Type 1 hydrolysed marine collagen, which is the most plentiful collagen in our bodies. It’s also a key factor in maintaining the elasticity and firmness of our skin. The collagen is collected from ethically farmed fish skin which breaks down into small collagen chains. This process is called hydrolysis and results in collagen peptides—hence the name hydrolyzed collagen. Type 1 marine collagen is one of the most abundant molecules in the body, and it is particularly important in bone, skin, and connective tissue. It is an interstitial matrix collagen organized in fibrils, which are essential for the competence of tissues such as skin and bones. Hydrolyzed collagen is more effective than other collagen products, which are made only of glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline. This effectiveness is because these three amino acids alone do not result in a complete collagen molecule. Without a complete molecule, our bodies do not absorb and transport enough collagen to the extracellular matrix. By taking Revive Collagen, with its added hyaluronic acid and aloe vera, your skin, hair, nails and joints will reap the benefits.
