Collagen Complete

Collagen complete

Kollo liquid marine collagen supplements are a daily collagen supplement you can take to help boost the levels of collagen in your body. Collagen levels in humans begin to deplete as early as our 20s, and this is one of the primary causes of the signs of ageing. As we lose collagen in our bodies, we experience gradual changes like:

• Dry, sagging skin
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Stiff, uncomfortable joints
• A reduction in bone density
• Loss of muscle mass

 

None of us wants to experience these symptoms as we get older, and the reality is that it isn't actually very difficult to mitigate them. It comes down to a few fundamental lifestyle choices like improving our diet, avoiding cigarettes and minimising alcohol, limiting our exposure to the sunlight and - you guessed it - taking a collagen supplement.

Enacting all these lifestyle choices together can have a significant impact on reducing the decline of collagen in our bodies and maintaining our youthfulness for longer.

The problem with collagen

One of the reasons our bodies fail to maintain our collagen levels is that it is actually very difficult to get the fuel for collagen production from our diets. Collagen is a protein - one that is very abundant throughout our bodies - so it is made up of amino acids. We can only get those amino acids from other collagen sources, meaning we need to consume the bones, skin and scales of animals like fish and cattle. This is simply not something we commonly do, so those amino acids are very sparse in our diets. Add to this the fact that basic collagen molecules are quite large. This makes them hard to break down in our bodies, so even if we do consume collagen-containing food our bodies may not be able to absorb those amino acids to stimulate collagen production.

All this is problematic for maintaining the collagen levels in our bodies, and it is the reason why supplementation has become so important. Collagen supplements generally offer varying degrees of Types I, II and III collagen in highly bioavailable forms that our bodies can absorb. Kollo is one of the leading collagen supplements on the market, and our award-winning formula has led to amazing results for thousands of satisfied customers. Benefits reported by verified buyers include:

• Reduction in skin sagging, dryness, fine lines and wrinkles
• Improvements in skin issues like acne, rosacea and eczema
• Greater suppleness and comfort in joints
• Increases in bone density
• Help with weight management
• Improved energy levels and mood regulation
• Reductions in feelings of bloatedness or fatigue/lethargy

These are just some of the many fantastic results our customers have experienced. Kollo has a unique formula and has won various awards in the cosmetic and wellness industries.

So what makes Kollo tick and why do we believe it is the best collagen supplement you could take? Read on to learn everything you need to know.

What's in Kollo?

Kollo is a liquid supplement that is provided in sachets containing a 21.5 gram shot of liquid. You can consume it straight from the sachet as a shot or you can add it to a glass of water or another drink to consume it this way. We feel that a liquid form is the best way to consume your daily collagen dose, as it is:

• Simple and easy to add to your daily routine
• Light on the digestive system
• Highly bioavailable for swift absorption into the bloodstream
• Easy to fortify with complementary ingredients to enhance the benefits

High-quality collagen

We carefully chose the collagen content for our supplement after exploring a range of options. We settled on Naticol marine collagen, which is backed by a number of scientific studies to show its effectiveness, and we believe it is the best type of collagen on the market.

First of all, marine collagen was our choice over bovine and other forms. The evidence is that marine collagen is likely to have the highest purity with the least chance of contamination from things like antibiotics, simply because farmed animals like cows and pigs often consume these chemicals to help prepare them for being made into meat. Farmed fish comes with some risks, but Naticol collagen comes from wild-caught fish, so its purity (and also sustainability) is very high. Furthermore, marine collagen is thought to be the most highly bioavailable since the molecules are similar to those found in human collagen. It is extracted from the skin and scales of the fish via a process called hydrolysis. This actually breaks down the collagen molecules into hydrolysed collagen peptides - smaller amino acid chains that are very easy for the body to absorb.
Effectively, the collagen comes pre-digested and, when consumed in a liquid, requires no breaking down and is very swiftly absorbed into the system with minimal strain on the stomach or intestines.

Every serving of Kollo contains 10 grams of this high-grade Naticol marine collagen. This is generally perceived to be the optimal dosage for the benefits that relate to Type I collagen (the collagen type that is most abundant in marine collagen). With this dosage, you should experience benefits for your skin, hair, nails, joints, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bones and more.

B Vitamins

To boost the effectiveness of the collagen content in Kollo, we add vitamins B1, B5, B6 and B12 into the formula. These have the following benefits for the body:

• B1: prevents complications in the nervous system, brain, heart, muscles, intestines and stomach and helps with the flow of electrolytes in cells.
• B5: helps break down fats and carbohydrates to produce energy, and yields benefits for the skin, hair, eyes and liver.
• B6: improves circulation and strengthens the immune system as well as promotes healthy brain function.
• B12: an essential component of DNA creation, nourishing the brain and nervous system and facilitating the formulation of healthy red blood cells.

Altogether, this injection of B vitamins helps provide the ideal environment for the amino acids in the collagen to stimulate natural collagen production in the body.

Vitamin C

Another nutrient we add to Kollo is Vitamin C. Without a healthy intake of Vitamin C, our bodies literally cannot form or store collagen. It is also a powerful antioxidant that reduces the rate of free radical damage to our skin. The result of this is a reduction of issues like dry skin, wrinkles and fine lines.

L-lysine

This is the final active ingredient of Kollo, again implemented to help boost the effectiveness of the primary collagen ingredient. L-lysine is known to promote collagen growth as well as increase the presence of healthy enzymes and antibodies, strengthening the immune system whilst helping your body synthesise collagen in larger amounts.

Natural flavouring

To ensure our collagen drink is something you can easily incorporate into your daily routine, we have included a carefully-formulated combination of natural flavourings to create a delicious tropical taste. We get hundreds of comments from verified buyers telling us that they love the taste of Kollo and we believe that is a key component of ensuring people are able to stick to their daily collagen consumption. Though it is extracted from fish, the collagen itself has a neutral taste, so you don't need to worry about any fishy undertones when drinking Kollo!

An award-winning formula

Though we are still in the early days of our adventure with Kollo, we have already received a number of accolades and awards that really validate our mission. We aim to help people fight back against the symptoms of ageing that occur due to declining levels of collagen in the body, and we have won the following prestigious awards for our work so far:
