Our COLLAGEN BOOSTER is a collagen supplement based on pure hydrolyzed collagen peptides from marine source (hydrolized fish skin), types I and II, in capsules.
Collagen is the largest and most abundand protein in the body. It forms the connective tissue of your skin, hair, nails, bones and joints. Think of it as the glue that holds your body together. From the age of 30, our own natural collagen production begins to decline, which is why you experience fine lines in your skin and possible loss of firmness etc.
Collagen is a complex protein made of three chains of amino acids - in fact, the protein that you have the most in your body - collagen makes up more than a third of your total protein. It consists, among other things, of "glycine", "proline" and "hydroxyproline" - all 3 amino acids that help your body produce new collagen.
If you take collagen as a supplement, you may support your own natural collagen production.
When the collagen is hydrolyzed, it means that the collagen is broken down into small chains which makes it easier for the body to absorb and therefore more efficient. This is also called collagen-peptides.
4 capsules that give you 2000 mg of pure collagen. This gives up to 30 days of consumption per COLLAGEN BOOSTER.
CAPSULE VS POWDER?
We have chosen to produce our collagen powder in capsules, while others sell it as loose powder. It's a matter of preference what you like best. If you don't make a daily smoothie and add the powder - or don't like the powder in your coffee / water - then capsules may be the right choice for you.
They are also easy to carry on the go or travel with. You can also always open the capsule and pour the contents into a smoothie if you wish.
TYPE & ORIGIN?
Collagen is not just collagen - our collagen is sourced from marine sources type I & II, which many of the beauty experts we work recommend.
Because it is a Type I collagen, fish collagen is ideal for skin. Fish collagen is also one of the most bioavailable collagen proteins amongst the other types, and so has the fastest absorption rate. Collagen from fish has the smallest particle size, making it much easier to break down and enter your bloodstream.
Bonus info: The fact that fish collagen comes from fish is special due to the incredible abundance of marine sources. It is estimated that 60% of fish bi-product is thrown away as waste. Fish skin, which is rich with collagen, is typically a large portion of this. Collagen can also be extracted from not only the skin of the fish (though it is primarily taken from here), but the scales, fins, and bones as well.
AT WHAT AGE SHOULD I START?
The body's own collagen production begins to decline slowly around the age of 25-30. This is also where most people experience, seeing the first "age signs" such as fine lines in the skin. Therefore, it is also around the period, it makes sense to begin taking a supplement of collagen. The effect will of course vary from person to person - we all absorb nutrients differently. Some will notice big changes and others will not. This is also the case with skin care products and other supplements - it depends on our ability to absorb and our natural deficiencies.
ONLY RELEVANT FOR THE SKIN?
Absolutely not! Collagen supplements are widely used in the beauty industry, but collagen is much more than skin. Collagen is part of many essential functions of the body, including joints etc.
CAN YOU COMBINE COLLAGEN BOOSTER WITH OTHER SUPPLEMENTS FOR BETTER EFFECT?
We recommend combining this collagen supplement with vitamin C. Vitamin C supports the body's own production of collagen. COLLAGEN BOOSTER is not formulated with vitamin C, which is why you can supplement it with eg Vitamin C Booster or our VITAMAX Multivitamin, as it also contains vitamin C.
COLLAGEN BOOSTER contains 120 capsules of hydrolyzed collagen from marine source (fish skin). Each capsule contains 500 mg of collagen.
