PROTEOGLYCAN | A JEWEL OF THE SEA
Proteoglycan is a kind of “glycoprotein” consisting of sugar chain bonded to a core protein; it is one of the components that configure the human cartilage and skin. For over thousands of years, “hizu namasu” or the salmon’s head was served to celebrate the New Year as a delicacy in the northern province of Japan, including Hokkaido Prefecture. At that time, Salmon was believed to be the fish God and the nasal cartilage in the salmon’s head was referred to as the jewel of the sea. Today, these precious proteoglycans are extracted from Hokkaido salmon nose cartilage using Japanese technology.
A POTENT NATURAL INGREDIENT FOR SKIN & JOINT HEALTH
Hyaluronic acid and proteoglycans are the components responsible for the water retention capability in the skin, however these components decrease with age. Proteoglycans are found in the dermis layer deep into the skin where:
Main component for water retention.
Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) properties to accelerate cell proliferation.
Due to its feather-like structure, proteoglycan has water retention and cushioning property of 30% more than that of hyaluronic acid.
Proteoglycan is naturally present in our body, it is one of the components that constitute the cartilage matrix, together with collagen and hyaluronic acid. These cartilage components peak by the age of 20 and diminishes as we age. Proteoglycan provides:
Buffering and cushioning effect in the cartilage which helps in joint movement.
Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) properties that promote cartilage regeneration.
