Marine Collagen has won a Green Parent Award as voted by a panel of loyal readers.
The skin-boosting collagen-packed formula from market-leading supplement brand Cytoplan has been voted winner of ‘best buy’ in the Beauty Supplements category of this year’s The Green Parent Natural Beauty Awards.
Created with a unique and bioactive collagen peptide formulation and made with Peptan type 1 wild-caught, sustainable marine collagen peptides from whitefish to deliver a tasteless and odourless collagen supplement.
Collagen is one of the major building blocks of our skin, bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons and is the most abundant protein in the body containing 19 amino acids. Type 1 Marine Collagen can be used as a supportive formula to aid the skin’s structure, elasticity, texture, strength, repair and resilience and to support the overall health of all connective tissue in the body.
Colder months and a drop in temperature can lead to dry skin, and research suggests that a collagen supplement can help rehydrate the skin and help it to retain moisture and firmness.
Packed with vital amino acids, just five grams of Marine Collagen will provide active nutrients such as Arginine and Lysine; amino acids that the body needs but cannot make on its own and must be derived from either food or supplementation for optimal health.
Amanda Williams, the nutritional therapist and CEO of Cytoplan, said: ‘We are delighted to receive this award from The Green Parent team and their loyal readers. We are beyond proud of our Marine Collagen formula, and we have taken care to ensure it is created with the highest quality standards and from a clean, sustainable source, but it was also important to ensure the formulation is bioactive; which means that it is well absorbed and utilised by the body too.’
‘As we age, our bodies slow down, producing less collagen. While we always advocate a diet and lifestyle that supports and protects our skin muscles and connective tissues, it can be useful to supplement collagen. Due to the growing market awareness of collagen for both beauty and so many other aspects of health, we have created a clean (free from ocean contaminants), tasteless and odourless Collagen powder that can be added to water or a smoothie.’
Both odourless and tasteless, Marine Collagen is delivered as a powder and can be added to water, juice or used to create a collagen-rich skin-boosting smoothie.
Sustainable and containing no artificial colours, sugars, dairy, wheat, gluten or soy, Marine Collagen is also non-GMO and certified by the Marine Stewardship Council.
