Directions for use
Adults: Blend one rounded teaspoon (one 5g serve) into 240ml of water or beverage of your choice. If substituting for water, we recommend smoothies, shakes or unsweetened yoghurt. Marine collagen is heat stable and great to add to your daily tea or coffee. We do not recommend fruit juice as it is high in sugar, which can inhibit the absorption of collagen.
Most people get next to no collagen in their diet because the biggest sources of collagen are things we no longer eat a lot of (e.g. bone broth, fish stock). If your diet is low in these types of food we recommend beginning your collagen supplementation with a 30 day loading protocol.

Our anti-aging beauty supplement containing the very best, sustainably sourced Bioactive Marine Collagen. With a very low molecular weight of just 2 kilodaltons (kDa), it's the most absorbable collagen available. Our unique formulation includes powerful beauty ingredients to supercharge your results.
This collagen we use is clinically proven and has been specifically formulated for firmer, more elastic and younger looking skin (less wrinkles and fine lines). It has also been proven to improve the strength and thickness of hair and nails. Other benefits include stronger bones and improved cellulite.
How is it Different?
Maximum bioavailability, 98% digestibility
Not all collagen powders are the same. The bioactive collagen peptides we use are obtained via a specific hydrolysation process which produces the peptide sequences required to target specific tissues and functions, as proven by clinical studies. With a very low molecular weight of just 2 kilodaltons (kDa), it's the most absorbable collagen you can get.
This is the only marine collagen source we've found backed by extensive clinical research, not general research about "collagen". It's also the best, sustainably sourced marine collagen you can get (from Germany) and certified to be free from impurities (e.g. hormones, antibiotics) and allergens (e.g. cheap, inflammatory shellfish and crustaceans).
We often get asked whether it is Type I, III or III. The answer is Type I and III, however at such a low molecular weight the type doesn’t matter anymore, it’s too small to be considered one or the other (and to be frank, the types quoted are more of a marketing thing than having much scientific validity).
We supercharge the beauty benefits with our unique formulation:
- Vitamin C, a co-factor for absorption of collagen (90mg per serve)
- Hyaluronic Acid, which aids in maintaining moisture in the skin so as to reduce the appearance of fine lines (60mg per serve)
- Resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant known for its anti-aging properties, protects the skin from environmental factors such as UV radiation and stress (100mg per serve)
- Zinc, an essential mineral that may reduce inflammation and irritation of the skin, can decrease acne and the signs of ageing (10mg per serve)
- Silica, a key cofactor for collagen synthesis as it enables collagen production within skin cells. It also gives a radiant glow to the skin as it oxygenates the blood (20mg per serve)

How Does it Taste?
This is an unflavoured powder and the collagen powder itself is tasteless and odourless (no fishy taste!). There is a slight taste from the supercharging ingredients resveratrol and zinc which doesn't bother most people but if you don't like the taste, try it with something other than water as per the serving suggestions. We love using the powder in our smoothies, shakes or with unsweetened yoghurt.
We do not recommend fruit juice as it is high in sugar, which can inhibit the absorption of collagen.
A heads up that if you've had other collagen powders before you might be used to them being white. Ours is more of an earthy colour, again due to the resveratrol and zinc.
What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. It makes up 75% of our skin, 95% of the organic compounds of our bones, and over 90% of our gut lining.
Why do we need more collagen?
Think of your skin like a sponge, if it's holding water it's full and elastic. After the age of 20 we produce around 1% less collagen each year, and even less after menopause. Less collagen means that sponge holds less water which makes it less full and less elastic.
How do collagen supplements help?
Supplementing with collagen has been clinically proven to replenish our bodies' own collagen which means younger looking skin and stronger hair and nails. It also means stronger bones and less cellulite.
What's the best way to boost collagen?
The best way to boost our collagen levels is by consuming it as an odourless, white powder which comes from animal sources such as cows. Think of it like a highly bioavailable form of bone broth.
