collagen supplements how to best take them

We want you to have the best results possible when taking our collagen so here are some helpful gems of information that will help you get the most from collagen supplements.

For Great Results - Make it a Habit – Collagen peptides work at the cell level to restore and rebuild joint tissues, skin tissues and improve hair and nails. Because cell regeneration takes time, this process happens over the course of about 30-45 days and It’s important to take DeepMarine consistently each day. We recommend mixing it in with the things you’re already in the habit of consuming daily – many people have coffee, tea or a smoothie each day and those are ideal beverages in which to mix DeepMarine.

Learn the Best Mixing Technique – Since collagen is a hyper dry powder, it can clump if you don’t employ the right mixing technique; let us help. You first put the powder into your dry cup, then put your spoon or fork into the dry cup and start stirring the powder quickly but gently just before your start pouring in your beverage. Stir quickly while you’re pouring and the powder will dissolve well. The movement of the powder as the liquid hits it prevents the powder granules from having a chance to glom onto one another and the powder dissolves properly.

Does Collagen Have a Taste? - For the vast majority of people, marine collagen has no taste. But, different people have different taste acuity and a small percentage of people can smell or taste the source material. So if you’re among the small few who taste or smell the source material, let us give you a tip here. The best way to manage this issue is to mix one scoop in some orange juice (or other beverage) and then leave it on the counter for about 20 minutes (or more if you want). Most people notice that the taste that they detected is gone by then.

3rd Party Tested for Purity – DeepMarine has a Health Canada issued Natural Product Number which shows that we adhere to Health Canada’s strict standards for high-quality health products. Our collagen is made from wild-caught fish so it’s free of hormones, antibiotics, pesticides and herbicides and each batch is third-party lab tested to ensure no heavy metals. This process ensure that you get only the very purest and most effective collagen for best results.

Understanding Collagen Types – More than just 1, 2 & 3 – Some companies try to make consumers believe that they need to take specific types of collagen to achieve specific results – not true!

The body actually produces 28 types of collagen and you need to know more about how your body actually produces all of the 28 various types of collagen to know why you don’t need to try and consume different types of collagen.

Interestingly, marine collagen (categorized as type 1) represents about 90% of the collagen in the body. Our bodies have special collagen producing cells with the job of producing ALL of the various types of collagen that we need. Let me provide an example. Our body’s soft tissues have special cells called fibroblast cells and they have the function of producing collagen for our soft tissues. Similarly, our bones have osteoblast cells that produce the collagen that is used to build bone tissue density. Collagen peptide supplements are like a targeted food for all of those special cells spoken about above and they help all of your body’s collagen-producing cells to increase the production of all types of collagen. So, as long as you take a highly absorbable collagen peptide supplement, like DeepMarine, your body will increase its production of the 28 different types of collagen that it needs.

Focus on High Absorbability When Evaluating Collagen Quality - one of the most important factors in determining which collagen will work best is “bioavailability”. Bioavailability means the amount of a substance that is easily absorbed and used in the body. One major factor that determines bioavailability is the size of the molecule trying to cross the gut barrier. Consider the basic process of digestion in which large particles are broken down by enzymes, acids and muscle action into particles small enough to be absorbed through the intestinal wall and utilized in the body tissues. So, you can imagine that a supplement that is already in the form of a very small molecule will be absorbed much quicker and remain in its original form compared to a supplement that is too large to easily cross the gut barrier.

Collagen peptides derived from marine sources are naturally a smaller molecule than those derived from beef and porcine sources. This inherently makes marine collagen a more bioavailable collagen. Most marine collagens measure between 3000-5000 Daltons while bovine collagen typically measures 5000-10000 Daltons. Numerous extra filtering steps ensure DeepMarine peptide molecules are at least twice as small as other measuring in at a tiny 1500 Daltons. DeepMarine remains the most bioavailable and effective collagen on the North American market.
