Just Marine Collagen.
Because you asked.
300g of marine collagen
(same pure marine collagen as in our crushes)
Our collagen comes from a blend of sustainably harvested non-gmo tilapia and pangasi raised in fresh water fish farms in Europe, with final processing in a Kosher certified facility (Kosher helps us be faithful in the way our fish is treated) in France.
After a lot of research and discussing with our manufacturers, we went with our specific tilapia collagen brand for many reasons:
- Our collagen is hydrolyzed, and boasts of more than a 90% absorption rate, 3 times higher than when sourced from food. Why is hydrolysis important? Due to its size, our body cannot utilize collagen in its native state (skin, bones or connective tissue of animals). Hence, collagen compounds must go through this intense hydrolysis process (where these large food forms of collagen are cooked, boiled and then broken down with water and enzymes into small and short chains of amino acids so that our body can actually absorb.
- Our collagen is virtually flavorless— some of the other fish brands had a stronger, fishier taste, while our collagen is essentially flavorless. It makes it easy for it to be drank daily!
- Our collagen is the most effective of its kind— not only is it the highest in bioavailability compared to the other sources of marine collagen, tilapia skin is the best in promoting wound healing and skin regeneration (ingestion of tilapia collagen encourages the growth of fibroblasts & increases the expression of genes involved in wound healing). Tilapia also has the highest concentrations of protein in their scales.
- Our collagen is sustainably sourced—because tilapia is so abundantly farmed (and the skin is so often discarded), sourcing collagen from aqua-cultured tilapia is the most environmentally friendly.
- Our collagen is purest of its kind — many breeds of wild fish now contain high levels of mercury and other toxic metals (which Vital Proteins was recently spotlighted for), while our collagen was tested to be less than 0.01 PPM. And all of our tilapia collagen goes through a validated and safe process (sterilization and pasteurization, filtration, UF, and demineralization), something that many collagen companies cannot stand behind. Our collagen is also irradiated and is contaminants free, carbohydrate free, cholesterol free, and preservative free.It is the most clinically proven—there were ample amounts of clinical studies done on this specific brand already, that we didn’t have to question the efficacy of the collagen.
DON'T WANT TO GROW UP?
After the age of 25, your body starts to lose its ability to produce collagen, this super-protein that makes up over 75% of your skin, hair, nails, bones, and muscles. Without these gatekeepers of hydration and moisture in your skin and hair cells, you may have started seeing things like wrinkles, dark circles, and thinning hair.
However, drinking our marine collagen daily for 2-4 weeks is clinically proven to replenish you at the cellular level for stronger skin and thicker hair.
OUR MARINE COLLAGEN
Sourced from tilapia skin, our marine collagen is clinically proven to increase skin hydration and firmness, reduce wrinkles, and decrease joint pain in just 4 weeks.
In addition, our collagen is clinically proven to:
— Strengthen and quicken hair growth
— Aid cell and muscle regeneration
— Improve bone and joint health
Collagen, as a complex protein, contains 18 out of the 20 amino acids that our bodies depend on everyday for various functions of our body, especially in maintaining the health of our skin, hair, brain, bones, teeth, nails, heart, organs, muscles, and even joints (collagen is the go-to medication for those with joint and bone diseases).
