Collagen Hydrolysate - Wild Caught Fish - 500 grams



Collagen is the ultimate all-in-one supplement for your body! It is the most abundant protein in our body, as approximately 25% to 35% of the proteins in our connective tissue, skin, bones and tendons are made up of collagen. Collagen has a specific and unique composition of amino acids that also specifically find their way in the body to your collagen-rich parts. 

Collagen comes from the Greek word "colla" (meaning glue) and is found throughout the body, so you can think of it as the "cellular glue" that helps hold together all the connective tissues in your body. Collagen plays a major role in your body's this process and gives strength, firmness and elasticity to the connective tissues in our skin, bones, muscles, tendons, cartilage, nails, teeth and the organs, including the entire digestive system. The amino acids in collagen are the building blocks of these structures.


Collagen is therefore not only a nutrient-cosmetic product but, as mentioned, a true all-in-one superstar for your body. Collagen that you take in through food or supplements naturally increases your body's own collagen supply. The body can produce collagen itself, but from the age of 25 the production of this important protein decreases until the age of 50 when the body produces almost no collagen at all.

Maintaining good levels and an adequate daily intake of collagen is an interesting part of the nurturing diet that the body is used to in evolution.

  1. All tissues in your body, including your own collagen, need input and sufficient nutrition to function optimally.

  2. As you age, your body's ability to produce collagen declines.

  3. Collagen is an important protein that is often lacking in the daily diet. Collagen and the specific amino acids balance the protein-amino acid intake. This is specifically due to the L-Methionine and Glycine ratios. Collagen is very rich in the latter.


Increasing your collagen intake is not limited to food supplements. For example, you can also make your own bone broth and stews, or eat tougher cuts of meat instead of fillets. The use of collagen hydrolysate dietary supplements is especially practical and time-saving. Collagen hydrolysate from wild cod is an excellent choice for this, as it allows you to quickly and easily supplement your daily diet with important amino acids.


Even though collagen hydrolysate does not contain all the essential amino acids, it does contain three amino acids that are not found to the same extent in other protein sources. In particular, the high concentrations of glycine, proline and hydroxproline make collagen unique. These three amino acids are only found in small quantities in plant-based foods. Glycine, proline and hydroxyproline are the three most common amino acids in collagen. In the human body, these three amino acids are found in roughly the same proportions as collagen supplements.


Collagen hydrolysate from wild fish is made from paleo-approved ingredients from paleo-responsible sources. Because collagen hydrolysate is almost pure protein with no sugars or fats, it fits almost any kind of diet, from keto to even low fat. Nothing is more nutritious and healthier than products of wild origin. Wild-caught cod from the pure parts of the Atlantic Ocean is no exception. Collagen hydrolysate, by the way, is very easy to digest and is absorbed quickly so if you experience digestive problems with other protein-rich food sources then trying collagen hydrolysate is a good choice.


Our collagen peptides are made from wild-caught cod from the Atlantic catchment area FAO 27 and production takes place only in Europe. This ensures that the quality of the product is controlled and guaranteed from start to finish. Responsible sourcing of our wild fish collagen in Europe increases sustainability compared to sourcing from unreliable sources such as China. Paleo Powders marine collagen is therefore the best choice in terms of quality, sustainability and environmental philosophy.


By naturally and gently hydrolyzing (chopping) the collagen proteins from high-quality cod hides with enzymes, peptides with a low molecular weight of 3kDa are created. The taste of the powder is very neutral making it an ideal ingredient for shakes, smoothies and even recipes. Due to the low molecular weight of the collagen particles, they are absorbed effectively and quickly. With a concentration of up to 95% protein per dose, this dietary supplement is as pure as it gets.


Collagen powders do not all have the same quality. In 2020, the Clean Label Project analysed 30 collagen products for the heavy metals arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury. The report showed that 100% of the collagen supplements tested had mercury levels within safe food standards. However, 34% contained low measurable concentrations. However, 37% tested positive for high levels of lead and 17% positive for high levels of cadmium.

Animal-friendly and sustainable procurement solves many of these problems. The report mentioned emphasises that heavy metal contamination is a by-product of concentrated animal feed and animal processing. Fortunately, we only use European wild-caught cod in this product. Another factor which, according to the report, contributes to heavy metal contamination is air pollution. This is unfortunately a fact of life in the modern world, but it can be solved with the right processing technologies.


Quality control, product safety and transparency are very important to us. Therefore, we thoroughly screen every analysis certificate and all new batches are double-analysed in an independent laboratory. This is how we ensure quality! The typical values of heavy metals in our collagen hydrolysate from wild cod:

  • Arseen (As) < 0,10 mg/kg = < 0,1 PPM
  • Cadmium (Cd) < 0,01 mg/kg = < 0,01 PPM
  • Lood (Pb) < 0,10 mg/kg = < 0,10 PPM
  • Kwik (Hg) < 0,005 mg/kg = < 0,005 PPM

Our hunter-gatherer ancestors, and even many generations after them, ate much more collagen than we do today. This was due to their high dependency on animal food. For the survival of our ancestors and the survival of our species, it was not a question of: whoever managed to catch an animal, used the booty from head to toe. Those who wanted to survive ate the whole animal, sinews, cartilage, skins and connective tissues, everything that was healthy; even the bones were consumed or made into tools/weapons. Sea or land animals or a combination of both: eating from nose to tail was the norm!


It is known that when the hunter-gatherers moved north from the equator, they could eat fewer plants. The colder it got, the fewer plants grew naturally. Since plant food decreases significantly with increasing latitude, this was compensated by animal food. Prehistoric hunter-gatherer groups generally obtained about 50% of their nutrition from animal sources. Modern hunter-gatherer societies get about 60% of their nutrition from animal sources.


In prehistoric times, eating only lean muscle meat, without the fats, organs, glands and collagen tissues, would not have been enough to thrive, or even survive. A significant proportion of animal food sources would have provided nutrient-rich and collagen-rich tissues. In the modern world, we generally eat mostly lean muscle meat. We gave up eating nose-to-tail decades ago. Collagen-rich meat or tough meat or other animal parts are not preferred today over the more lean and tender meat.

So the difference between historical and modern daily collagen consumption is striking. Vegetarians and vegans tend to consume even less collagen than they already do. From a paleo perspective, which promotes the nose-to-tail eating concept, it is important to eat enough collagen.


Collagen maintenance and quality depend not only on an adequate daily diet, but also on mechanical stress on the body, such as sports and exercise. Collagen can rapidly change its crystallinity in response to physical forces. For example, the crystallinity and arrangement of collagen molecules in the cartilage in your knees changes with every step you take. The changing mechanical load on each knee during a step causes the structural state of the collagen to change. The saying "Use it or lose it" applies not only to muscles and bones but also to collagen tissue. If you do not load your tissues sufficiently with the right stimuli, they lose quality and functionality! Many and varied movements are part of our human heritage. Fortunately, it is an integral part of a paleo lifestyle.


Water is another important paleolithic factor relevant to your collagen. After water, collagen is the most abundant substance in your body. In a natural state, 60% of the weight of collagen is water. Water is thus an integral part of collagen. Water molecules can attach themselves firmly to collagen and follow the helix shape neatly and orderly. The complex dynamics of water molecules in hydrated collagen tissue play an important role in determining its structural and functional properties. In other words, good hydration is important for your collagen. Therefore, take good care of the functioning of your mitochondria and drink enough pure water every day. Alongside exercise and diet, this should be at the top of everyone's list when it comes to collagen health and function.


Of course, sleep, earthing and sensible sunlight exposure are also critical factors supporting healthy collagen levels and collagen function throughout the body. Sleep provides a longer period of recovery, while sunlight provides red and near-infrared light, especially around sunrise and sunset. Earthing, barefoot contact with the earth, supplies the connective tissue matrix with electrons from the earth.


Did you know that there are many types of "most common" proteins in nature? Collagen, for example, is the most common protein in the animal kingdom. There are at least 16 types of collagen, but 80-90% of collagen in the body is of types I, II and III. Actin is the most abundant protein in most eukaryotic cells. It is highly conserved and participates in more protein-protein interactions than any other known protein. These properties make actin a critical player in many cellular functions. In the plant kingdom, we find RuBisCO (ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase-oxygenase). It is considered the most abundant protein in the world because it is present in every plant that undergoes photosynthesis and molecular synthesis during the Calvin cycle. It has been calculated that rubisco makes up 20-25% of the soluble protein in leaves. It is produced at a rate of about 1000 kg/s on Earth.
