Naticol Marine Collagen: committed to quality and sustainability
Kollo uses Naticol marine collagen to supply the collagen content of our supplement. It is 100% premium grade fish collagen, derived from the skin and scales of the animals as a by-product of the fishing industry. We selected this as our collagen source after a great deal of due diligence, searching for the collagen peptides that have the highest purity and integrity, as well as the brand that offers the best ethics and sustainability.
We are confident in our choice and, as part of our own commitment to transparency, would like to share some details about what made us choose Naticol marine collagen.
Naticol marine collagen: Traceability
The first element of Naticol that we love is the company’s commitment to traceability during production. The supply chain offers complete transparency so you can see what is done at every stage of production. The fish involved include tilapia and several other freshwater fish that are farmed in aquaculture fish farms rather than being wild caught.
One advantage of this relates to sustainability, because the methods involved in catching fish in the wild are often unsustainable and threaten populations of many species of marine animals as well as destruction of their habitats. By choosing farmed fish, the methods do not impact the numbers of wild fish in the environment – everything is done under controlled conditions and remains completely sustainable. The aquaculture farms they use are certified by the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) and the Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP), meaning they are in full compliance with strict regulatory guidelines designed to protect the environment, the welfare of the animals and the quality of the products derived from them.
A commitment to quality
During the production of Naticol marine collagen, every supplier is rigorously audited to ensure the highest standards are met. They ensure those suppliers have full EU approval and manually check that their processes meet the standard for both preserving the quality and integrity of the collagen and adhering to environmental concerns.
The aquaculture farms used to obtain Naticol marine collagen have very low CO2 emissions and are committed to protecting natural resources. They produce 7x less greenhouse gas emissions than the farming methods used with cows and pigs – another key benefit of marine collagen over bovine or porcine. The use of antibiotics is kept to a minimum and other chemicals that could contaminate the collagen are not used.
Naticol marine collagen: durability
When it comes to producing the collagen peptides that are sold as Naticol marine collagen, there is a commitment to creating a robust and durable product. Purity and integrity are the order of the day and the processes used for extracting and breaking down the collagen adhere to this principle. Enzymatic processing is used to obtain the collagen from the fish skin and scales, and enzymatic hydrolysis is used to convert the collagen into collagen peptides. By choosing enzymes over acids, the end product is protected against damage and contamination, adding value to the raw material in the best possible way.
Other noteworthy features relating to this stage include:
• A commitment to zero waste as nothing is discarded
• Adherence to ongoing social and economic commitments
• An active circular economy
• An environmentally friendly approach throughout
As evidence of both the quality and inclusivity of Naticol marine collagen, certain certifications are obtained. Firstly, the marine collagen peptides are produced in the EU, meaning they are required to meet very strict standards before they can be sold.
The first certification worth noting is the RSE certification that demonstrates the producer’s social responsibility. It is part of ISO 26000 and involves issues like gender equality, clean water, climate action, sustainability, peace and justice. This certification outlines core values and a commitment to them, and we feel those align closely with the mission at Kollo.
Another important certification is FSSC 22000, which is all about food safety standards. This certification provides assurance that the collagen peptides are free from harmful contaminants and safe to consume. This certification involves rigorous assessment of the processes and products involved, so it is a strong assurance of the integrity and purity of Naticol collagen peptides.
Other certifications that will be of interest to many are that the hydrolysed collagen is certified both halal and kosher. This is all about inclusivity and maximising the accessibility of the product, demonstrating a genuine adherence to the commitment to not discriminating.
Naticol marine collagen: responsibility
There is a strong understanding of the responsibility to customers with Naticol marine collagen. Through rigorous adherence to ethical values in the sourcing and processing of collagen, a unique hydrolysed collagen product is developed that is natural and safe for consumers. The purity of the collagen content is always in excess of 99% and the product itself is patented as a mark of its authenticity and uniqueness.
Extensive testing of the product has been carried out in controlled conditions to evaluate its efficacy for the full range of benefits people want from collagen. The results are superb for things like:
• Skin beauty and ageing well
• Improved collagen synthesis
• Joint health
• Musculoskeletal conditions
• Lean body mass
• Sport nutrition
These results are another thing that helped us decide Naticol was right for Kollo. We want to deliver the full suite of benefits to our customers, and Naticol has excelled in demonstrating its efficacy on all fronts.
Bringing everything together
Naticol marine collagen is extremely bioactive and bioavailable, so it will be easily absorbed into your system and get to work swiftly in your body. Its benefits to health and wellbeing were the ultimate goal of its inception and we pass those benefits on to you through Kollo.
The traceability, durability and responsibility that are so evident in Naticol are the reasons we chose it as the main active ingredient in our supplements, and we have had no cause to look back after going into production.
How Kollo builds on Naticol marine collagen
Naticol was a starting point for Kollo, but we have put a lot more into it to create our own innovative and industry-leading product. We build on the sustainability element by implementing our own environmentally-friendly processes into the production and design of Kollo. All our packaging is completely recyclable, and that includes those gorgeous little sachets. They can be recycled as part of the Terracycle scheme, so Kollo is as close to zero waste as possible.
Our biggest commitment is to the efficacy of Kollo in delivering all those wonderful collagen benefits to our customers. Taking the active ingredient of Naticol marine collagen, we have ensured every sachet contains 10,000mg (10 grams) of the stuff so you get a hefty daily dose. This dosage is informed by a wealth of scientific research as the optimum daily amount needed to yield the full range of benefits, and we ensure you get it every single day.
By suspending the collagen peptides in a liquid shot, we also deliver the following advantages:
• A simple, convenient way to take the supplement: simply dilute with water and drink it!
• Maximum bioavailability of the collagen peptides since nothing has to be broken down.
• A delicious taste from natural flavourings, making it a welcome addition to your daily routine.
An extra collagen boost
In addition to everything listed above, we also enhance the efficacy of the Naticol marine collagen by fortifying the formula with complementary nutrients. Research has shown that certain B vitamins and vitamin C help nurture the processes by which collagen is produced in the body. So the collagen peptides fuel collagen synthesis, and we add a B vitamin complex and 100% of your vitamin C RDA to help ensure your collagen-producing mechanisms are in optimal shape too.
We also add l-lysine to the mix because it has been shown to promote collagen growth along with enzymes and antibodies. It also helps with the health of your immune system. With these additional ingredients, the health benefits of Kollo will extend beyond boosting your collagen levels, making it a powerful resource for your overall well being.
