Collagen Supplement Reviews

 

We’ve reviewed the 5 best collagen supplements on the market

There are so many Collagen Supplements available now. We have narrowed it down to the most effective and competitively priced. 

It is well documented that Pure Peptide Liquid Marine Fish Collagen is the best form.  Collagen taken as a liquid is up to 10 times better at being absorbed by the body than when taken in tablet form, so don’t waste your money on cheaper tablets claiming to have a high collagen content, also Marine Fish Collagen is of a higher standard than bovine pig collagen, and is more sustainable. 

Look for products that also include added proven skin care ingredients such as Biotin, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamins C & D.

We found that as this can be quite an expensive supplement, buying it straight from the supplier on-line is cheaper than buying it through a retail outlet as they add their 30% profit

What to look for and what to avoid

 Hydrolysed Marine Collagen Peptides

  Liquid Form

  Added Beneficial Ingredients


  Tablet Form

 Low Collagen per dose

Later in our review we discuss in more depth the benefits of Collagen and the different types, but getting straight to the point, here are our reviewed products:

What Is Collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, found in the bones, muscles, skin, and tendons. As we age our natural collagen depletes, by the time we are 40 to 50 it has seriously started to deplete, and by the time we are 60 we produce 50% less than we did at 25, causing many issues such as joint pain, thinning hair, weak nails and wrinkles.  It is the substance that holds the body together. Collagen forms a scaffold to provide strength and structure.  Endogenous collagen is natural collagen, synthesized by the body. Exogenous collagen is synthetic. It comes from an outside source, such as supplements.  Endogenous collagen has a number of important functions. Breakdown and depletion is linked to a number of health problems.  Exogenous collagen is used for medical and cosmetic purposes, including the repair of body tissues.  Collagen is a hard, insoluble, and fibrous protein that makes up one-third of the protein in the human body.  In most collagens, the molecules are packed together to form long, thin fibrils. These act as supporting structures and anchor cells to each other. They give the skin strength and elasticity.

There are at least 16 different types of collagen, but 80 to 90 percent of them belong to types 1, 2, and 3. These different types have different structures and functions.

Different types of collagen supplements

Collagen peptides are usually considered the best form of collagen for ingestion. Hydrolyzed collagen should be taken if a person wants to take a collagen supplement. Hydrolyzed collagen means the collagen has been broken down into small peptides, which are easy for the body to digest. Consuming collagen with vitamin C gives the body the best shot at taking the full advantage of the collagen being consumed. Vitamin C will optimize the collagen supplement’s bioavailability because it is essential for collagen synthesis to occur. While picking up the collagen peptide supplements, it is recommended to skip the flavored versions and always look for third-party certification. Choosing the best type of collagen also depends on specific health goals.

To maintain skin elasticity and hydration and for healthy eyes, bones and wound healing: Try one to two servings daily of marine collagen, which is high in type 1 & 3. Take 2.5 to 10 grams of collagen peptides taken orally daily for 8 to 12 weeks may make the skin healthy.
