FURTHER FOOD MARINE COLLAGEN PEPTIDES BENEFITS
Our bodies naturally produce less and less collagen as we age. Over time we get wrinkles, saggy skin, and our hair and nails become weak and brittle. Collagen supplementation can help reverse the toll that aging takes on our bodies. Further Food Premium Marine Collagen Peptides can help increase skin elasticity, decrease wrinkle depth, hide cellulite marks, improve wound healing, and build stronger hair, nails and teeth.
Collagen has unique structural properties and an amino acid profile that make it essential in reducing gut inflammation, healing stomach ulcers, aiding in digestion and regulating stomach acid secretion. Studies have shown that several of the amino acids in collagen have direct benefits in helping to heal leaky gut and IBS.

MARINE COLLAGEN PEPTIDES FAQs
Why Should I Take Marine Collagen? Marine Collagen is the most bioavailable of all collagens, meaning it gets absorbed faster and more efficiently. Marine collagen has scientifically proven power to enhance athletic performance, help weight management, and improve skin, bone, joint, digestive, and immune health.
Further Food Premium Marine Collagen has over 6 grams of pure collagen peptides per serving, and includes 18 amino acids (8 essential amino acids.) Additionally, Further Food Marine Collagen contains more glycine than other types of collagen. Glycine is a vital, all-encompassing amino acid that has functions throughout the entire body. Glycine promotes the building of lean muscle mass, impacts the central nervous system to prevent formation of stomach ulcers, improves glucose tolerance to protect against diabetes, as well as having anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
What are the ingredients and how do I store it? Further Food Premium Marine Collagen Peptides are made from the skin of non-GMO wild caught Alaskan cod. It’s pure protein, and free from sugar, preservatives, artificial sweeteners or any added ingredients! Further Food Premium Marine Collagen Peptides should be stored in a cool, dry place.
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 must 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 can ruin the beneficial properties of collagen. Further Food Premium Marine Collagen is made exclusively from the skin of wild caught cod fish.
How absorbable are Further Food Premium Marine Collagen Peptides in my body?
Marine Collagen is the most bioavailable of all collagen types as it has the smallest molecular weight of any collagen. This means that Further Food Premium Marine Collagen Peptides gets absorbed faster and digested more easily. Additionally, 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 begin restoring and repairing skin, bones, joints and ligaments immediately!
How do I use it? How many scoops should I consume per day? Take one to two scoops one or two times per 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 restoring and repairing skin, bones, joints, ligaments and your gut immediately. Clinical trials have shown visible improvements after four to eight weeks of supplementation. However, one should take collagen peptides indefinitely to combat aging because our body produces less and less collagen every year. Supplementing with Further Food Premium Marine Collagen Peptides is not a temporary fix, it’s a lifelong dedication to better health from the inside out.
Is Collagen the same as gelatin? No. Collagen and gelatin are both sourced from cartilage and have the same makeup of amino acids, but gelatin undergoes more extensive processing which decreases its bioavailability. Further Food Premium Marine Collagen helps our body to repair and replenish cells in a more effective and beneficial way than gelatin.
Can children use Further Food Premium Marine Collagen Peptides? Yes. Our Premium Marine Collagen Peptides are a clean, pure protein powder without any sugar or preservatives, so parents can boost a child’s nutrition and protein intake without any harmful additives or ingredients.
Can diabetics use Further Food Premium Marine Collagen Peptides? Absolutely! In fact, taking collagen is even more important for people with diabetes! Diabetics have high blood sugar levels which can cause breakdown of collagen through a process called glycation. This leads to faster aging and increases their need for collagen supplementation.
