Collagen is the main structural protein in the body, it quite literally is the glue that keeps us together. As we age our collagen production starts to decline, so getting a good source of collagen in your diet on a regular basis is vital. There are so many types of collagen that it can be difficult to know what to choose, so we’ve done the hard work and put together 8 reasons why you should consider trying a marine collagen powder:
You may not know that marine collagen is the most environmentally sustainable source of collagen. Most of the by-products of fish processing become waste- but these by-products including the fish skin are incredibly rich in collagen. We can take these by-products that would otherwise be wasted and utilise them, using all parts of the animal just like our primal ancestors. Our Marine collagen powder is sourced from wild sustainably caught fish off the coast of France.
2: Wild Caught.
Many Marine Collagen products on the market are sourced from Tilapia which is a heavily farmed fish, known to be contaminated with pollutants and pesticides- not the sort of things you want to be ingesting. Here at PP it took us 2 years to find a high quality, sustainable and pure source of marine collagen. We use the Molva Molva fish, which is line caught in the wild- no fish farms, toxins or heavy metals, it is as pure as can be.
3: Superior taste.
Our Marine Collagen powder is completely tasteless and odour free meaning that it mixes well with anything you add it too- from a protein boost in your morning coffee or smoothie to a great addition to your yoghurt, protein or pancakes. It’s super versatile and easy to use.
4: High Bioavailability.
Marine Collagen Powder is well digested, absorbed and distributed around the body. It has the smallest particle size and lowest molecular weight of all collagen types, which means it is easily able to pass through the intestinal wall and into the blood, providing superior bioavailability.
5: Rich in Type 1 Collagen.
Marine Collagen is made up of Type 1 Collagen which is the most abundant collagen in our bodies, it makes up our skin, bones, muscles, tendon and ligaments.
6: 93% Pure Protein.
Marine Collagen provides 8 of 9 essential amino acids to support maintenance, growth and repair. It contains no fats, sugars or carbohydrates making it one of the best sources of protein on the planet and the perfect pre or post-workout. Rich in anti-inflammatory protein it helps to support recovery and repair wear and tear. It’s also great for supporting muscle mass, endurance and stamina.
As we age our collagen production starts to decline which can lead to issues including wrinkles, sagging skin and joint complaints. We can use marine collagen to support the maintenance and structure of our connective tissues including our skin, hair, nails, joints and bones
8: Digestive Health.
Digestive health is the key to overall health, and our inner tissues rely on collagen to maintain our gut lining. Damage to the lining is implicated in many inflammatory conditions. Marine collagen and it’s anti-inflammatory amino acids can soothe the gut lining, supporting the structure and function of the gut.
