Why should I take marine collagen?
Marine Collagen is the most bioavailable of all collagens, meaning it gets absorbed faster and more efficiently. The research demonstrates that Marine Collagen may help improve skin, bone, joint, and digestive health.
Further Food Premium Marine Collagen has over 6 grams of collagen peptides per serving and includes 18 amino acids (8 essential amino acids). Additionally, our Premium Marine Collagen contains more glycine than other types of collagen.
Glycine is a vital, all-encompassing amino acid that provides tremendous health benefits. Glycine’s health benefits include helping to: promote the building of lean muscle mass, prevent the formation of stomach ulcers, improve glucose tolerance to potentially protect against diabetes. Glycine also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
What are the ingredients and how do I store it?
Further Food Collagen is made with 100% hydrolyzed collagen peptides. It’s a protein powder that is free from sugar, preservatives, artificial sweeteners or any added ingredients! It should be stored at room temperature, in a cool, dry environment.
What is the difference between Marine Collagen made from fish skin vs fish scales?
It is important to use Marine Collagen sourced only from fish skin and not fish scales, as the collagen made from scales is not as beneficial. Fish skin is soft and can be extracted without heat or enzymes. Hard scales on the other hand may be extracted using hydrochloric acid, which is harmful to our health, and the extraction process requires heat, which can destroy the collagen peptides. Thus, while the natural collagen content of fish scales and skin is the same, the process for extracting scales may ruin the beneficial properties of collagen. Our Premium Marine Collagen is made exclusively from the skin of wild caught cod fish.
How absorbable are Marine Collagen Peptides in my body?
Further Food Collagen Peptides are short-chain amino acids and are highly bioavailable, meaning that the collagen is absorbed immediately. Research has shown that more than 90% of collagen is absorbed into the bloodstream within the first six hours after consumption. This means collagen can start working immediately in helping to restore and promote skin, bone, and joint health.
How do I use it? How many scoops should I consume per day? Take one to two scoops of Marine Collagen Peptides one or two times per day. Start with 1 scoop a day. More can be taken for an additional protein boost. You can mix it and use it in a variety of recipes, click here for collagen recipe ideas.
Are there any side effects? No known side effects have been reported. We recommend not taking collagen on an empty stomach in order to prevent any intestinal discomfort that may occur during digestion of large amounts of pure protein.
How long will it be before I see results, and how long will the results last? Collagen begins to support skin, hair, nails, bones, joints, and digestion immediately. Clinical trials have shown visible improvements after four to twelve weeks of supplementation. However, one should take collagen peptides indefinitely to help combat aging because our body produces less and less collagen every year. Supplementing with Premium Marine Collagen Peptides is not a temporary fix, it’s a lifelong dedication to better health from the inside out.
Can children use Further Food Premium Marine Collagen Peptides? Yes. Collagen protein is tasteless and odorless, which makes it great for picky eaters. All our collagen products are a good source of protein without any sugar or preservatives, so parents can boost a child’s nutrition and protein intake without any harmful additives or ingredients.
