Additional Information

Marine collagen is unique due to its high content of amino acids – glycine, proline and hydroxyproline. It is the combination of these amino acids, the length of the peptides and their formation of the actual protein that gives our collagen unique properties such as strengthflexibility and elasticity.

By increasing collagen production, you build a sturdy collagen structure in your body and strengthen connective tissues. The stronger these connective tissues are — joint cartilage, tendons, ligaments — the lower the risk of injuries.

Also contains a high amount of protein which contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass. It is also important in the maintenance of normal bones, thereby supporting an active lifestyle even in old age.

Bioavailability

Our marine collagen peptides via mild enzymatic hydrolysisA production process which is far gentler than the one necessary to obtain bovine or porcine peptides. Additionally, marine collagen is absorbed up to 1.5 times more efficiently* in the body than mammal collagen. Our collagen’s low molecular weight of 3 kDA means that there is faster uptake and transportation of collagen peptides to skin, bones and tendons for the synthesis of new collagen.

Sustainability

Norway has the largest and most sustainable cod stock in the world, and Norwegian cod numbers have been at a record high over recent years. The Norwegian fishing industry is almost unique in the world being based on sustainable fishing and clear, clean waters of the North Atlantic Ocean, hence the naturally excellent quality of the product.

The Skin of the Wild Cod Fish is a by product of the fishing industry, thereby ensuring nothing goes to waste.

What is the difference between PEPTIPLUS® Collagen (bovine) and Marine Collagen?

Marine Collagen is absorbed more easily than mammal Collagen. It is absorbed up to 1.5 times more efficiently than mammal collagen. Its smaller particle size (3kDA) allows for faster uptake and transportation of the collagen peptides to the essential areas, skin, bones and tendons for the synthesis of new collagen. Also, bovine Collagen contains both Type 1 and Type 3 Collagen where as Marine Collagen contains just Type 1 Collagen. Marine Collagen is particularly good for the skin so this may be preferable if your main reason for buying is to benefit skin, hair and nails. If your main reason for buying is for regeneration/ recovery of joints, tendons, ligaments, etc, then you may prefer to choose bovine Collagen.
