Hello Colla-Genie family,
Let’s talk Collagen quality.
If you are like me and LOVE a good deal, you definitely looked for the cheapest collagen supplement.
BUT, when it comes to Collagen, not all collagens are equal.
So- Price is NOT the factor you should be looking at when deciding which collagen to purchase.
I understand that it can be overwhelming when deciding which Collagen is best so I am going to highlight some of the important factors you should take into consideration.
Collagen can be sourced from the following animals:
- Bovine (Beef)
- Poultry (Chicken)
- Porcine (Pig)
- Marine (Fish)
Out of all the above possible sources, research has proved that marine collagen is considered the highest grade of collagen.
Colla-genie is proudly sourced from Wild caught fish skins.
You are probably still wondering what the source of Collagen has to do with the quality…
BIOAVAILABILITY and PURITY!
Bioavailability is also known as absorption rate- how effectively the body absorbs a product into the bloodstream.
When it comes to bioavailability, you need to look at molecular weight of the product as well as hydrolysation.
Hydrolysation is actually directly linked to the molecular weight.
The more hydrolysed a product is, the lower the molecular weight.
The lower the molecular weight = the better the bioavailability (absorption) is.
Colla-genie utilizes Collagen peptides which have been DOUBLE hydrolysed and have a molecular weight of 1.5kDa where as many brands on the market might not be peptides and have a molecular weight of 3kDa.
Purity is key as well when it comes to collagen. Collagen sourced from land animals can contain hormones and antibiotics that are effectively passed on to you. Additives, fillers and flavorings also affect the purity.
You guessed it!
- sources it’s collagen from Wild caught fish
- utilizes double hydrolysed fish collagen peptides
- contains peptides with a 1.5kDa molecular weight
- is ONE pure ingredient- no fillers/additives/flavorings
It is important to know exactly what you are putting into your body- what it is made from, where it comes from, and bioavailability as well as purity.
