Many people have been asking for an alternative to our chicken and bovine collagens. We’re excited to announce that we have managed to source a premium Marine Collagen that is wild caught, GMO-free with no nasties. It is low calcium, low sodium, hormone, antibiotic and preservative free. This great type 1 collagen is also relatively neutral in taste and smell!
Our Hydrolysed Marine Collagen consists of type 1 collagen which is ideal for building and maintaining skin, bones, tendons, ligaments, hair and nails.
Here are some commonly asked questions:
How does it taste?
We have managed to source a premium Marine Collagen that is relatively neutral in taste and smell!
What about the Calcium content?
Our Hydrolysed Marine Collagen is low in calcium, with only 7mg per 100g.
What about the mercury content?
Our marine collagen has been through both the Gelatine Manufacturers of Europe (GME) and the Gelatin Manufacturers Institute of America (GMIA) testing, and the results fall below the required specification of a mercury content less than 0.10ppm (parts per million).
What is the sodium content?
We have sourced a low sodium marine collagen with 310mg total sodium per 100g. This sodium content is due to the natural nature of hydrolysed collagen, and is not from any additional sodium being added to the product.
What is your collagen derived from?
There is a lot of research about marine collagen being extracted from jellyfish, sharks, sea cucumber and other marine animals, which can make one skeptical about the origins of their collagen. We are proud to say that our marine collagen is sourced from 100% wild caught, marine whitefish, and it is Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified at source. This means that our marine collagen is sourced from fisheries that meet the MSC standard in terms of management, best practice and sustainability.
What about hormones and antibiotics?
Our Marine Collagen is wild caught, GMO-free with no nasties. It is also hormone, antibiotic and preservative free, and research suggests that this form of collagen is a great option due to its low ability to harbor transmissible disease.
Our marine collagen is a great source of type 1 collagen. Type 1 collagen is ideal for building and maintaining the skin, bones, tendons, ligaments, hair and nails.
What about marine collagen’s absorption?
Our marine collagen has gone through an extraction process known as hydrolysation. What this means is that the collagen is extracted and denatured to form a gelatin. Thereafter, it undergoes what is called ‘enzymatic hydrolysis’, which produces a pure form of collagen hydrolysates. These hydrolysates comprise of peptides. Collagen peptides are the most easily absorbed and readily utilised forms of collagen to the human body.
