Positive effect of fish-derived Bioactive Collagen Peptides® on skin health

A new study confirms supplementation with fish-derived Bioactive Collagen Peptides® can be as effective as meat collagen, by showing significant skin improvements

The randomized controlled trial from Proksch et al. (2020) at Kiel, in Germany, showed that supplementation with fish-derived Bioactive Collagen Peptides® VERISOL®, at a daily dose of 5 g, significantly improved skin elasticity and reduced wrinkles volume after 4 weeks, and more pronounced after 8 weeks, in both Asian and Caucasian women, age 50-70 years.

In contrast to other studies addressing the effects of fish-derived collagen products on skin, the results from this study demonstrate a clear clinical improvement from Bioactive Collagen Peptides®.

Stephan Hausmanns, GELITA’s Vice President, Health & Nutrition explains: “There are some important differences between collagens obtained from fish and from species very similar to humans, such as mammalian sources, that may explain the suboptimal effects to skin observed from great part of the science on fish-derived collagens.

Fish collagens have grabbed market attention as these products are likely to appeal to a niche group of consumers who avoid meat for dietary or religious reasons.

“We therefore investigated how we could optimize and bring a fish-derived bioactive collagen peptide into the VERISOL® portfolio of skin health products, while ensuring the same end-point benefits to consumers”, revealed Stephan.

The positive effects of VERISOL® products on skin health and beauty have been demonstrated by several clinical trials, performed over the last 10 years and testing nearly 500 study participants. In this new study, the positive results on skin elasticity and wrinkle reduction have been equally demonstrated for the specific fish-derived VERISOL® variant, and GELITA attributes this to the specific production process.

As it is known, collagen peptides have different biological activities”, explains Stephan. “The efficacy of VERISOL®, now including the new fish-derived variant, lies in consistently obtaining the same specific molecular weight distribution profile of peptides across all products, independent of the raw material of origin, using the traditional method of collagen hydrolysis, with specific controls”.

Recognizing the uniqueness of the product, Proksch et al. (2020) stated in the study that the effects measured are valid only for VERISOL®, the specific bioactive collagen peptide used in the study, and cannot be readily applicable to other collagen products.

With this newly published, peer-reviewed study, GELITA brings a fish-derived variant to its well-established VERISOLâ range of Bioactive Collagen Peptides® for skin health and beauty, with demonstrated optimal improvements to skin elasticity and pronounced wrinkle reduction benefits.
