Naticol Marine Collagen

Naticol Marine Collagen

Collagen supplements are all the rage right now in the cosmetic and wellness industries. Collagen is known for its anti-ageing properties, turning back the clock to make us look and feel younger. Its benefits are mostly enjoyed by people in middle age and beyond, particularly women going through the changes of menopause, but anyone can take it to experience improvements in skin, hair, nails, joints and more.

Kollo supplies a specially-formulated liquid collagen drink that is big on flavour and provides a hefty daily dose of the sought-after nutrient. Our customers love incorporating our delicious drink as a shot or part of a larger drink into their daily routines. We get countless reviews from verified buyers talking about the benefits to skin, joints and mood, as well as praise for our attentiveness to sustainability and the delicious taste of our drinks. We want you to understand a little more about what makes Kollo so special, so read on to get the inside scoop.

What is collagen?

Collagen is a protein that is found all around the human body. It is a building block for many of the tissues, strengthening the connective tissues of the skin, bones, muscles and even blood vessels and intestines. Abundant as it is, our ability to synthesise it begins to decline in our 20s and accelerates into our 40s and 50s until the collagen levels in our bodies are massively depleted. The result of this is many of the sigs of ageing. Think:

• Sagging skin
• Lines and wrinkles
• Thinning hair
• Stiff, aching joints
• Loss of bone density

Though there are other factors involved in the onset of all these symptoms, our collagen levels are a major part of the puzzle. We don't get the amino acids we need to keep our bodies producing collagen from our diets - that would require us to be consuming things like bone or the skin and scales of fish. Even then, our bodies may not be able to assimilate the amino acids since the molecules are large and difficult to digest. It seems we are doomed to lose the natural collagen in our bodies.

Supplementing for collagen production

Without the fuel it needs, your body will not be able to synthesise new collagen in anything like the volume it did when you were young. It needs specific amino acids that stimulate collagen production in the cells. The most effective way to get these amino acids into your system is with collagen supplements. The collagen in those supplements comes from animals. It is extracted from fish, cattle, pigs or chickens and put into pills, powders, topical creams or liquids that we can consume or apply. This gets the collagen into our bodies, where it can be broken down into amino acids and absorbed into the system to kickstart our natural synthesis of the valuable protein. The benefits can be incredible, including:

• Healthier, younger looking skin with fewer wrinkles and greater elasticity
• Fuller, more luscious hair and less brittle nails
• Greater suppleness and comfort in our joints
• Gains in bone density to help resist conditions like osteoporosis and osteoarthritis
• Improved muscle mass
• Enhanced gut health

But one important thing to be aware of is that not all collagen supplements are created equal. For a start, there are differences between the sources of the collagen. When the protein is extracted from cattle, pigs or chickens, there is a greater risk that it will be contaminated with things those animals were given to speed up their growth. There is also the chance that the collagen will be more difficult to synthesise since the methods used to extract it don't break the molecules down so effectively.

The Solution: Naticol Marine Collagen

When Kollo came into the industry, our mission was to provide the most potent, pure and effective collagen supplement on the market. After a great deal of research, we decided that Naticol was the best type of collagen to use in our product.

Naticol is marine collagen

This means it is extracted from fish. The fish it is sourced from are caught for food, and the collagen comes from skin and scales - by-products of the fishing industry since there is no demand for those parts of the fish as food. The fish used for the creation of Naticol marine collagen are wild caught, so you can rest assured your money is going towards an ethical, sustainable practice.

You can also be confident that there will not be any contaminants in the product, since the fish are not farmed in any way. Naticol marine collagen is extracted from fish skin and scales using a process called hydrolysis. The result is hydrolysed collagen peptides - smaller chains of amino acids that are broken down through the extraction process into a product that is very easy for the human body to absorb.

Essentially, it is pre-digested so it is ready for immediate uptake when it enters the body. This means it gets to work quickly and puts no strain on your digestive system in order to access the active ingredients. Clinical studies into Naticol have found that it contains high levels of Type I collagen, which is the most abundant type in the human body. It is present in our skin, bones and joints. The research has found strong evidence of benefits for skin and anti-ageing effects, joint health, weight management and even wound healing. In a nutshell, Naticol is:

• Natural and sustainable
• Unique in its collagen peptide profile
• Very pure
• Highly bioavailable for easy digestion
• Neutral in taste, smell and colour
• Supported by human clinical studies
• Free from GMO, fat, carbohydrates, preservatives and purine

The power of Kollo

Kollo is a liquid collagen supplement to be taken daily. Its key ingredient is 10 grams of Naticol marine collagen peptides. The liquid comes in a sachet and can be consumed immediately as a shot or added to a drink as preferred. In addition to the collagen peptides, we fortify our collagen liquid with several other key ingredients that are clinically proven to add to the anti-ageing benefits and enhance the effectiveness of the collagen. These are:

1. L-lysine

L-lysine is proven to promote collagen growth, enzymes and antibodies. It is also known to help promote a healthy immune system.

2. Vitamins B and C

Kollo also contains various added vitamins, including 100% of your RDA of Vitamins B12 and C, plus 70% of your RDA of B1, B5 and B6. These nutrients have been shown to help improve the collagen formation for renewing cells in the skin, bones and cartilage. It also has benefits for your energy levels and healthy brain function.

These ingredients work to supercharge the collagen supplement for maximum benefits. We also add natural flavourings to enhance the taste of the drink, making it a joy to drink every day and experience the benefits you want.

What else helps get the most out of Kollo?

As with all supplements, you can enact various lifestyle changes to get the most out of the benefits of collagen. They don't have to be drastic, but the following things can help slow the decline of collagen in your body and promote healthy collagen synthesis alongside a host of other health benefits:

1. Limit exposure to sunlight

While there are benefits to sunlight exposure like increased Vitamin D, too much sunlight is harmful to your skin. This, in turn, impacts on your collagen levels and can cause you to age prematurely. Wear sunscreen when you go out and try to practice not spending too much time in intense sunlight.

2. Eat a healthy diet

A healthy, balanced diet packed with a broad range of nutrients is very beneficial for every aspect of your body. You will get all the vitamins, minerals, proteins and fats you need, with plenty of water for good hydration and lots of antioxidants. It is wise to avoid excessive intake of sugar, salt, saturated fat and alcohol as these can all have detrimental effects for your collagen levels.

3. Avoid smoking

There are many negative health effects associated with smoking and premature ageing is one of them.

4. Exercise regularly

The health benefits of exercising are many, and the cortisol reduction and dopamine hits will do wonders for your skin, hair and mood.

5. Sleep well

Be sure to sleep for 7-9 hours per night as consistently as possible. Sleep is an essential part of overall health so don't neglect it.
