Discover Naticol®’s unique mechanism of action

Thanks to the unique manufacturing process for Naticol® fish collagen peptides, which starts from the selection of fish skins containing a high ratio of hydroxyproline (similar to the hydroxyproline found in humans) to the enzymatic hydrolysis where essential amino acid building blocks are broken into smaller parts, Naticol® fish collagen peptides are better and faster assimilated in the body, according to scientific research by our manufacturing partners.

When it comes to collagen peptides, there are two important aspects to take into consideration: the nutritional and biological benefits.

Webinar: Effects of Pomella® on AGEs reduction

(Exclusive to our registered customers)

Listen in as Jim Roufs, MS, RD examines a clinical publication measuring the effects Pomella® has on reducing AGEs (advanced glycation end-products) in this interesting webinar.

Jim notes his excitement about the results showing reduced AGE formation at a feasible dose amount, “we’ve read somewhere between 12,000-15,000 clinical research studies, I still think this is the most remarkable finding with a dietary supplement that I have ever seen.”

When skin is exposed to oxidative stress, the effectiveness of the endogenic antioxidant system can be significantly compromised. Pomegranate, a natural advanced glycation end product (AGEs) inhibitor shows great potential for anti-glycation, a major contributor to slowing the progression of skin damage.

AstaPure®: Benefits of Astaxanthin on Cardiovascular Health

According to data obtained from the World Health Organization, cardiovascular diseases accounted for 31% of all causes of death in 2016, and they are considered as the leading cause of mortality worldwide. As oxidative stress and inflammation are interrelated and contribute to the initial events of cardiovascular diseases, antioxidants that modulate redox balance, such as astaxanthin, may be considered as important regulators of inflammatory responses and have become the focus of research to evaluate whether and how they prevent these diseases. This has been confirmed by a new interesting study recently published.

Winter and skin: Naticol® and water to replenish and rehydrate

Winter is a critical season for the skin. With its cold temperatures, low humidity and wind, these together affect the skin, leaving it dry and chapped, which unfortunately does not help skin aging. For example the epidermis thins, cell renewal slows down, and collagen is lost or damaged.

Naticol® is a high-quality source of natural fish collagen peptides, clinically researched for skin support. One clinical study using 5g of Naticol® ingested on a daily basis, for 8 weeks, demonstrated that, regular intake of Naticol® fish collagen peptides improved skin firmness while also indicating preventive effects of Naticol® on skin dehydration, due to cold weather conditions1. Skin benefits were also achieved with a lower dose, in another study using 2.5g of Naticol® per day2.
