The best source of Type I Collagen comes from the sea!
Collagen is suitable not only for health-conscious women, but for everyone. After all, it has benefits for the whole body. Did you know that marine fish collagen is a truly basic supplement? Type I collagen is the most common type in our body and is important for more than just a beautiful appearance. It also nourishes the muscles, tendons, cartilage, bones, blood vessels, teeth and intestines.
Our collagen-rich tissues are continuously storing and utilizing the amino acids from collagen hydrolysate, keeping them strong and healthy. By taking a collagen hydrolysate type I powder, you can easily enjoy the benefits without putting in much effort. In this way, you can get through the days and years actively, radiantly and vitally.
One-third of all protein in the human body is collagen. By the time you are 30, collagen production can decrease by about 1% per year unless you take action! This is one reason why collagen peptides are suitable for people of all ages and at every stage of life
It is a fact that collagen production in our body decreases as we age. In general, you can follow the guideline below:
These figures show how collagen production in our bodies declines as we age
- At age 40, our body's collagen production drops by a quarter
- At age 60, collagen production is half that of our younger years
- At age 80, our body produces four times less collagen that it previously produced in younger years.
Fortunately, with the right lifestyle choices, diet and extra support, you can support the body's natural collagen production, with all the positive consequences that come with it.
Collagen from Paleo Powders
Paleo Powders marine fish collagen is made from the skins of deep-living marine fish and is an extremely good and natural source of collagen. About 70% - 80% of these fish skins consist of pure collagen, and contain nourishing amino acids such as glycine, alanine, proline and hydroxyproline.
Because sustainability, in addition to quality and effectiveness, is important to us, we chose marine fish collagen. Now the fish skins that normally end up in a waste stream are processed into a high-quality and very useful product.
We believe it is important to use only wild-caught fish caught in a sustainable and traceable manner. The catch area is in the North Atlantic Ocean near Norway. This area is known for its clean waters.
When choosing marine fish collagen, we considered not only quality and effectiveness, but also sustainability. Now the fish skins that would normally end up in a waste stream are processed into a high-quality and highly useful product.
We use only wild-caught fish caught sustainably and traceably. The catch area is in the North Atlantic Ocean near Norway, known for its clean waters. This way we can ensure that our product is not only of high quality and effective, but also sustainably and responsibly produced.
Wild-caught seafood skins are one of the purest and highest quality sources of collagen peptides. These peptides are tiny protein fragments created by cutting the long collagen protein chains from fish skins into smaller pieces. This gentle hydrolysis process preserves the nutritional value of the fish skins and is free of unwanted chemicals.
Shredding the protein chains allows the collagen peptides to become water-soluble and have higher bioactivity. The rapid and good absorption allows the peptides to enter the bloodstream untouched and intact. The small particles and low molecular weight of only 3 kDa are the two factors that make the absorption of marine fish collagen hydrolysate so good.
After ingestion of hydrolyzed marine fish collagen peptides, the peptides are transported through the small intestine and network of blood vessels into the bloodstream and then distributed throughout the body. It is well documented that the innermost layer of the skin in particular (the dermis) absorbs these peptides and that they can remain there for 14 days after ingestion.
Interestingly, a recent study (randomized, double-blind and placebo-controlled) showed that daily intake of just 5 grams of marine fish collagen hydrolysate for 4 weeks improved skin elasticity, especially in areas of the skin exposed to sunlight. The effect remained present even 4 weeks after cessation of intake.
P.S. Did you know that not only does collagen production decrease as you age, but you also lose muscle mass? In inactive people, the loss increases about 3-5% per 10 years starting at age 30. However, the loss of muscle mass also occurs in active people, but to a lesser extent.
So it is important to consume enough protein, especially after age 30! As you age, you lose muscle mass. Men and women around 60 need even more protein after a workout than younger men, and it is recommended to consume at least 30 grams of protein per meal for optimal results.
Collagen is a pure source of protein because it is 95% protein. So by taking collagen you get a high dose of protein. Therefore, with collagen as a source of protein, you actually kill two birds with one stone: you not only support the production of collagen in the body, but you also provide the body with high-quality proteins for the muscles
