Marine Collagen

Found In: fish, shellfish, algae.

Source: Skin of Tilapia Fish

Supplier / Farming Location: USA

Final Location of Manufacturing: Sydney, Australia

Function: Dietary Ingredient

Why We Love It: We lose around 1% of our natural collagen on average each year once we reach our 20’s, so Tonik No.6 is an effective way to have you feeling and looking your best – by stimulating collagen levels naturally.

An important note: Lots of collagen particles are too large to be properly digested and absorbed. They are simply expelled from your body (aka: wasted!). We’ve made sure that won’t happen!

a breakdown:

The Background 

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body. Our skin, hair, nails, and joints rely on it for structure, elasticity, and firmness. As collagen levels decline, fine lines, hair thinning, and brittle nails begin to appear. It is at this point that collagen supplementation becomes so crucial. When you supplement with a collagen peptide that is highly bioavailable, you are directly providing the body with the amino acids and peptides it needs to produce collagen.Marine Collagen is a collagen supplement produced from fish skin & scales. We use the waste skin & scales from the food industry that would otherwise be discarded. A process called hydrolysation transforms the skin into collagen peptides. The smaller the collagen peptide, the easier it is to absorb by the body. As a result of higher absorption, it is more effective at replenishing and restoring collagen to a deeper layer of skin, hair, and nails. You will see significant results after this point.Our collagen is sourced responsibly from open-water farms internationally. The purity and minimal environmental impact of these marine ecosystems are monitored according to strict United States & international standards. A range of specific fish species are used to provide the complex amino acid profile needed for collagen supplementation to provide clinical results. All of our fish are supplied for human consumption, meeting the stringent standards of the food and hospitality industries.

The Active Ingredients 

The absorption of marine-based collagen is 1.5 times more efficient than that of other collagen sources, according to studies. The size of the peptides is what differentiates marine collagen from bovine and porcine collagen. As a result of being hydrolyzed and smaller than bovine or porcine collagen, marine collagen peptides are more bioavailable.

The Process  

When ingested, marine collagen is absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed to a deeper layer of skin called the dermis. A fresh collagen matrix is generated once it reaches the collagen matrix, stimulating fibroblast proliferation. Ingesting hydrolysed collagen peptides increases the body's supply of amino acids that cells need to produce collagen. An effective, non-invasive method of improving the appearance and health of skin, hair, and nails, marine collagen is a completely natural protein.

The Benefits*

An insiders perspective

Anti-aging effects

in areas of your body like your bone density and your skin (i.e. fine lines and wrinkles).

Overall skin health

since collagen is peptide rich & an essential protein in helping repair, plump skin, improve elasticity, firmness,moisture & hydration.

Support healthy hair & nails

thanks to the keratin found in the amino acids in collagen.

Anti-inflammatory effects

can reduce pain in joints + assist gut health & Inflammatory Digestive Conditions by aiding intestinal permeability.

Improved joint health

from amino acids in collagen which are an important part of building joint cartilage.

Promotes muscle recovery

from amino acids in collagen which are found in connective tissue.
