Vital Proteins 101: All About Collagen Peptides & Marine Collagen

Collagen is found in our skin, hair, nails, joints, and bones. The body naturally produces collagen but with age – around 25 – our body’s collagen production declines. This is why supplementing your diet with ingestible collagen may be a good idea.

The Benefits of Collagen

Skin: One of the main causes of fine lines and wrinkles is the natural loss of collagen from the skin. After age 25, our bodies begin to produce less and less collagen.

Bones and joints: As we age, our bones also become susceptible to the side effects of collagen loss. Brittle bones and suboptimal joint function are issues that affect many people over 50.

Collagen Peptides & Marine Collagen

Collagen is a fantastic way to support your connective tissues. We offer two collagen products: Collagen Peptides and Marine Collagen.

Our collagen has one thing that stands above the crowd: our sourcing. The Collagen Peptides are sourced from bovine hide while the Marine Collagen is sourced from wild-caught white fish. The second is a great pescatarian-friendly option. They are both dairy and gluten free and formulated without added sugar. In addition, they easily dissolve in hot and cold liquids, making them a versatile ingredient for all kinds of recipes.

To help you boost your collage intake we’re sharing two collagen smoothie recipes!
