What to look for in your Collagen supplement

Collagen is the primary building block for skin, hair and nails, which decreases as we age. This vital protein not only is key for healthy skin and strong joints, but also helps to maintain our overall wellbeing. It has become a mainstay in the wellness routines of many, lauded for its wave of beauty benefits in maintaining skin elasticity, fortifying hair and supporting nail health.

A collagen supplement can play a beneficial role in maintaining collagen health and supporting collagen levels, however not all collagen supplements are created equal! When you're after a quality collagen formula to incorporate into your day-to-day, it's important to know what to look for.

Let's break down some key points to consider:

Source: Collagen peptides are usually sourced from bovine, porcine or wild-caught fish skin and scales (known as Marine Collagen). Wild-caught Marine Collagen is considered the most beneficial due to its high bioavailability, containing primarily Type 1 collagen and a source of amino acids. Our hydrolysed Marine Collagen is over 90% protein, delivering a highly absorbable source of collagen that is heavy metal tested, unflavoured, unsweetened and heat stable (perfect for your morning coffee or cacao!).

Form: Pills, powders or liquids? It's all about personal preference. Pills provide an easy to consume way to get your daily dose, with no fuss. Powders can be added into smoothies, nut lattes, breakfast bowls and more, for a boost of protein plus a nourishing texture, while liquids are a perfect addition to your morning coffee or tea.

Our sustainably sourced Marine Collagen Collection is your all-star team for radiant skin and vitality. Choose from our wide range of hydrolysed powders including instant "green juice" Greens + Collagen, to our Pure Marine Collagen or Beauty Collagen Creamer for the perfect collagen boosting addition to your beauty ritual.

Ingredients: It pays to pay attention here and read the fine print. Make sure you are aware of any added ingredients, fillers or additives that may be present in a product. Ultimately, it's important to choose something without a long list of unwanted extras that can potentially interfere with its effectiveness. Look out for artificial colourings like iron oxide, polyethylene glycol (PEG), carrageenan, mineral oil, titanium dioxide, and petroleum byproducts, just to name a few.

Our range features 100% pure fish-derived Marine Collagen peptides from wild cod skin, and is tested to ensure a low heavy metal content with no chemicals used in the extraction process. 

Bioavailability + hydrolysation: Bioavailability describes how easily a substance can be absorbed by the body, especially after it has been processed or broken down. Hydrolysed collagen peptides are more bioavailable than other forms of collagen due to their smaller molecular weight, which means they are more easily digested and absorbed.

We have activated our Marine Collagen peptides through the hydrolysation process for optimal absorption. This breaks down the protein into shorter chains to increase their bioavailability, ensuring your body can absorb as much of the benefits as possible. 

We’ve done the heavy lifting for you, so all that’s left to do is find your perfect collagen match to suit your particular needs. Get ready to glow from within!
