Collagen is a protein produced by the body that supports and strengthens your skin, joints, muscles, bones, hair, nails, and gut lining.
As we age, our bodies produce less collagen internally. The only way to replenish the body's collagen is by ingesting it in the form of animal protein.
There are many collagen supplements on the market. The most common form is low-quality "bovine" collagen sourced from the hooves and skins of livestock.
PureWild Co. makes all of its products with wild marine collagen, which is considered to be the gold standard of collagen sources.
Wild marine collagen comes from fish. Ours is from wild-caught white fish sourced from a family-run fishery based in Nova Scotia.
Our wild marine collagen powder is produced by hydrolyzing the skins, fins, and bones that would otherwise be thrown away by our fishing partners.
This produces a tasteless and odorless powder that easily mixes into juices, smoothies, and hot drinks.
The body is better able to absorb wild marine collagen because it is made of smaller molecules than other collagen sources.
Wild marine collagen is also the most sustainable choice because fishing produces far less carbon emissions than livestock farming.
Studies show that collagen can help support bone density, hair thickness, nail strength, skin elasticity, and joint health among other benefits.
The reason for this is because all of these things are comprised of collagen.
As we age past 20, our bodies use up our reserves and stops producing as much on its own. The only way to restock the supply is by regularly consuming high-quality collagen sources, like PureWild Co.'s range of wild marine collagen products.
Between 3,000mg to 10,000mg of collagen each day is the amount shown by studies to provide the most benefit.
The exact amount is less important than establishing collagen as a regular part of your daily diet.
