The beauty industry has countless tips and tricks, from how to create a natural makeup look to new methods to make your fake nails look real. You can take to the internet and find a ton of DIY videos, reviews for different treatments, or new trends, but what about reaching your skin and nail goals from the inside-out? Conventional beauty practices and go-to topical treatments are great, but they leave out one very important piece: nutrition. Much of your outer appearance relies on your inner health. At Amandean, we strive to make sure you feel as good on the inside as you look on the outside!

Amandean Marine Collagen has a heap of benefits, including improving gut health, building lean muscle, and increasing flexibility. However, today we’ll discuss how incorporating Amandean Marine Collagen into your routine can enhance your skin, fight signs of aging, and strengthen your nails.  

Marine Collagen Facts

Marine Collagen peptides consist of the collagen extracted and hydrolyzed from unused parts of fish that we don’t consume for food, namely the scales and skin. Marine collagen is composed of approximately 90% type l and 10% type lll collagens, which promote healthy hair and nail growth and improve skin elasticity. It is an environmentally friendly and sustainable source of collagen.

Marine Collagen for the Skin

The skin is the largest organ of the body, and is made up of three layers: the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis. Each layer plays a significant role in the way our bodies function. The epidermis is the outermost layer of the skin (the one we are used to seeing). This layer is responsible for protecting our skin from the elements of the environment. The dermis is the middle layer. It is home to connective tissue, nerve endings, blood vessels, hair follicles, and sweat and oil glands. The fibroblasts in the dermis layer synthesize collagen and elastin, making the dermis layer responsible for the strength and structure of the skin. Lastly, the hypodermis (the fatty layer) is responsible for conserving the body's heat and protecting the organs.

The skin is made up of three proteins: collagen, elastin, and keratin. Keratin acts as a protective barrier on the skin’s surface. Elastin works with collagen to give the skin elasticity, keeping it firm and tight. Collagen is the most abundant of proteins, making up 75% of the proteins in the skin. When collagen levels are high, the skin is soft, smooth, and supple. However, as we age, our collagen levels begin to decrease. As a result, we develop lines, wrinkles, and even uneven skin tone and texture.

Marine collagen is a viable resource for offsetting signs of aging and enhances the skin. Studies have shown that taking collagen as a supplement can help to slow the onset of fine lines, lessen the appearance of facial wrinkles, and increase skin elasticity and hydration.

Anti-Aging Super-Food

Marine collagen is abundantly packed with the amino acid, glycine, which is often referred to as the ‘anti-aging amino’. Glycine is the structural protein that provides anti-aging benefits to the skin and reduces lines and wrinkles, diminishing saggy skin. Glycine also protects the skin from free radicals caused by ultraviolet light (sunlight), which can cause cell damage, which causes the skin to show signs of aging.

Marine Collagen for Nails

People suffer from dry, brittle, and weak nails for different reasons. Natural factors such as age or iron deficiency can contribute to damaged nails. Additionally, too much moisture can cause soft nails, and dry or dehydrated hands can cause brittle nails. Acrylic nails, gel polishes, and nail polish can be harsh on natural nails, easily damaging them. As well, many occupations that involve working with our hands, as well as environmental factors, can cause our nails to become weak and break. Studies have demonstrated that collagen can increase nail growth, improve brittle nails, and lessen the frequency of broken nails.

Experience Marine Collagen with Amandean

Amandean Marine Collagen Peptides, type l, and type lll collagen are sustainably-sourced from wild-caught fish from the pristine waters of North Atlantic. It is suitable for pescatarians and contains no shellfish for those concerned with allergies. Marine collagen powder is also keto and paleo-friendly, making it an excellent choice for high-protein diets. The formula also has a high bioavailability rate, which means its effects show up quickly because it’s easily absorbed into the body. Incorporating marine collagen supplements into your routine can be easy: Just add it into your daily coffee or tea, or sprinkle it on yogurt. We even suggest whipping up a yummy smoothie and adding marine collagen powder to give it an extra boost of nutrients.

"My product shipped quickly and was in perfect condition when I received it. I am happy that the amount that you get is fair for the price, and I like the fact that it is Type 1 Collagen. It has no aftertaste or adverse smell. I drink it with my Vitagreens supplement powder in some natural apple juice in the mornings. It is so fine and light that it doesn't always fully dissolve as you would imagine a powder to do, but it doesn't impede the quality, taste, or usability of the product. I have noticed that my skin feels better, my nails are stronger, and I am able to do a lot more gardening - kneeling, bending, stooping - without as much ashiness afterwards. I am quite pleased with Amandean Marine Collagen. This is my fourth different Marine Collagen product, and I will definitely keep re-ordering it".

We've all heard the classic "you are what you eat" yadda yadda yadda. Skincare gurus will tell you that their skincare routine doesn't stop or end with topical products, it's ingrained into their diets and morning protein shakes. But what if your skin clarity depended on when you eat just as much as what you eat? Fasting can kick our entire bodies into gear by detoxing and burning through fat, but it can also alter our skin's chemistry and help us to achieve that youthful, clear glow. Whether skin health is your main goal or you simply want to reap the benefits of this happy little side effect of intermittent fasting, here's how it works!

Get your blood flowin’: The link between muscle fatigue & poor circulation

Typically, when we think of poor circulation, the first thing that comes to mind is pins and needles in our arms after sleeping funny or purple-y skin. The fact of the matter is that your circulation is incredibly important to your overall well being. Having poor circulation is an underlying cause for a number of ailments, and it puts you at higher risk for much more serious diseases as well. You might benefit even more from getting a good rush of blood to your brain and muscles than you would a strong shot of espresso! Even if you are in seemingly perfect health, it doesn't hurt to get up and get your blood flowing to keep your mind and body active and healthy.

How to retain your energy level while fasting

February 23, 2021

You know those days when you forget your lunch at home, are too late to make yourself a nice breakfast before running out the door, or are too busy to get up from your desk? I find that I am more irritated (AKA hangry), scatterbrained, and shaky. That's what I always imagined fasting to be like and I couldn't understand why all my coworkers and friends were giving it a go! What I soon found out though is that fasting is not a random blindside to your body. In fact, it's calculated, controlled, and when done correctly, can bypass many of the side effects of skipping a meal, including retaining your energy. If the fear of mid-day slumps is preventing you from hopping on the fasting bandwagon, look no further. This is how to beat it!
