Collagen represents around a third of all protein in the body. It provides structure to the skin and supportive connective tissue in joints, and plays an important role in repair and ageing.
From around 30 years old, our body’s ability to produce collagen diminishes. This causes skin to wrinkle along with other visible signs of ageing.
Supplementing with collagen improves collagen structure in the skin and joints. This results in smoothed wrinkles, improved skin texture and boosted skin hydration, firmness and elasticity.
Collagen peptides provide the building blocks for your cells to produce your own collagen - amino acids including hydroxyproline, proline and glycine. They also stimulate the skin to produce increased levels of better-quality collagen and elastin for more resilient skin as you age.
The result is improved skin barrier, moisture retention and elasticity which supports healthy skin ageing and radiance at every age.
Multiple peer-reviewed published clinical trials have demonstrated marine collagen supplements promote healthy radiant skin. The science says that in eight weeks collagen may:
- Reduce eye wrinkle volume by up to 49%
- Increase skin elasticity by up to 40%
- Increase skin hydration by up to 28%
- Improve skin texture
- Increase dermal thickness for plump appearance
- Increase quantity and activity of fibroblasts
- Decrease collagen degradation by up to 31%
It doesn't stop there. Collagen peptides are active in every part of your body where collagen naturally exists. They can promote healthy gut, joints, muscle recover recovery after exercise.
We only use marine collagen from fisheries that are certified sustainable in accordance with the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) standards. This ensures our marine collagen is produced from fish sourced from wild-capture, sustainable fisheries.
Sustainable fisheries operate on the core principle that waters are not over fished. They ensure enough fish are left in the ocean so that their operation will not negatively impact the environment or the communities who rely on fishing for their livelihood.
No. Our collagen is made from a single marine source of wild caught North Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) from Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sustainable fisheries operating in the Atlantic Ocean.
The collagen in human skin is comprised of 85 per cent type 1 collagen. Marine collagen provides sustainable and consistently high-quality type 1 collagen peptides with low molecular weight particles. These are smaller in size and more easily absorbed across the digestive tract, ensuring optimal bioavailability and delivery to the areas of the body where it is active. Marine collagen is also a potent source of hydroxyproline, proline and glycine – the building blocks of new collagen and elastin fibres.
No. Our marine collagen does not contain mercury. Mercury accumulates in the fatty tissue of fish. Our marine collagen is made from bones and scales where mercury is not found.
Our marine collagen is produced in accordance with the EU regulations. Our collagen is batch tested for mercury and other contaminants in line with these strict regulations and found to be compliant.
