Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation. Collagen is a protein that supports the key areas of your body, including skin, bones, teeth gums, blood vessels and joints. However, collagen synthesis (the process of combining different amino acids and components to make new collagen) in the body begins to decline as we age.Holland & Barrett’s Marine Collagen with Vitamin C helps to keep your skin healthy.
These supplements also contain vitamin C which contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin. Vitamin C also helps support your immune system, normal psychological function and normal energy -yielding metabolism.

Our bodies all contain the protein collagen. In fact, collagen is the one protein they are most abundant in.
Collagen is a major constituent of bones, skin, muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
Marine collagen comes from a variety of sea life, including jellyfish and fish.
Once the fish’s flesh has been removed for food, everything that is left is cleaned. At this point, the collagen is extracted.
It then goes through a process called hydrolysis. This breaks down the collagen into collagen peptides, which are small units of protein.
These peptides are easier for the body to digest.
Marine collagen contains a higher collagen content than other sources. It is also considered a more eco-friendly option, because it prevents fish visceral from being wasted.
Marine collagen is Type 1 collagen – the most abundant kind and is a rich source of amino acids, including proline and glycine. It is a major structural component found in normal skin and bones.
While our bodies contain an abundance of collagen when we are young, our collagen production actually starts to slow down when we are around 25 years old.
Collagen production deteriorates even more quickly in women who have undergone the menopause.
Similarly, smoking, excessive sugar consumption, and UV rays restrict the body’s collagen production, causing the skin to wrinkle and sag.
That means that taking a regular collagen supplement may help your body build and maintain its collagen levels.
Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid as it is also known, is a water soluble nutrient with plenty of uses within the body.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant and protects cells from free radical damage.
Vitamin C also helps the body create collagen. This allows the skin to function properly and normally.
Other benefits of vitamin C include supporting normal immune system function, normal psychological function and energy-yielding metabolism.
Take one or two Holland & Barrett Marine Collagen with Vitamin C supplements every day alongside food. Do not exceed the recommended daily amount.
Since marine collagen is derived from fish, these supplements are therefore unsuitable for both vegetarians and vegans.
Available in 60 and 120 bottle sizes.
