Why does Kollo use Naticol over Peptan collagen?
Peptan collagen is a well-known brand in the collagen industry. It is a supplier of collagen peptides for other brands to use in supplements, beauty products, foods and more. Peptan collagen peptides have a reputation for their purity and high levels of protein content. This makes them a very strong choice for use in supplements. It was certainly considered during the development process of Kollo, but we ended up opting for an alternative.
Naticol is another popular brand in the collagen industry, with many similarities to Peptan. But there are some important distinctions between the two. It is those that led us to opt for Naticol as the collagen peptides for our liquid supplement. In this post, we will compare the two a little and try to illustrate why we made the choices we did when developing Kollo.
What are collagen peptides?
Collagen peptides are amino acid chains derived from complete protein molecules. Thus, they are what usually go into collagen supplements. The reason for this is that those native protein molecules are very large. Therefore, if we were to put them through out digestive systems, only a small amount would ever absorb into the bloodstream. The amino acids contained in that collagen are key to triggering the production of more collagen in our bodies. Hence the need to get them into the bloodstream. The answer is to break the collagen molecules down into a more bioavailable form.
To get the full benefit from this, the breaking down of the collagen molecules must have no impact on the integrity of the resulting material. The process is hydrolysis, wherein certain chemicals or enzymes and water break the molecules down into smaller amino acid chains. With a lower molecular weight, these hydrolysed compounds still contain the amino acids needed for collagen production. But they are also far more bioavailable; in other words, they can enter the bloodstream with ease.
What are the benefits?
Once in the bloodstream, these amino acids travel to the cells to stimulate the synthesis of new endogenous collagen. Our natural collagen levels decline as we get older, leading to the many signs of ageing. This includes those we can see, those that we can feel and even some that cause harm without you noticing. This problem becomes more pronounced in midlife, when our bodies age at a faster rate.
No matter when you start ingesting collagen peptides, you could experience the following benefits:
Firmer skin with greater elasticity
A reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Greater strength and shine in the hair and nails
Increased bone density
Improvements in joint health and suppleness
Higher-quality sleep and a boost to energy levels
Elevated arterial health
Better gut health
These are the benefits we want people who take Kollo to experience. Thus, when researching for the development of the product, we explored Peptan collagen in-depth.
What does Peptan collagen do well?
Peptan produces collagen peptides sourced from fish (marine), cows (bovine) and pigs (porcine). They aim for the highest possible purity of their collagen and always ensure the protein content is very high. The marine and bovine collagen is Kosher- and Halal-certified. One key selling point of Peptan is what they describe as a ‘unique’ amino acid composition. It contains a high degree of glycine, proline and hydroxyproline. These three amino acids are essential for collagen synthesis in our bodies.
Peptan is actually the biggest brand in collagen peptides with a wide range of collagen types. These claim to offer various different focuses for the benefits available. There is scientific research that backs the effectiveness of their products. Moreover, it can be easily applied to many different types of products.
There is no doubt that Peptan collagen is a product of great quality so it’s no surprise there are many collagen brands that use it in their products.
Why did Kollo choose Naticol over Peptan collagen?
Naticol collagen is another huge brand in the industry. Just like Peptan collagen, the purity of Naticol is very high. What's more, it possesses a very high concentration of the collagen protein in the amino acids composition. With Naticol, just like with Peptan, you will get a wealth of glycine, proline and hydroxyproline. This will stimulate collagen synthesis in your body.
But there are a few factors that made us choose Naticol for Kollo:
Though Peptan prides itself on the organic sources of its collagen, we preferred what Naticol had to say about its source. Firstly, it is exclusively marine collagen, which is the most bioavailable. It also most closely resembles the structure of the collagen found in our bodies.
It is Type I collagen, which is very important for our skin, bones and joints. We also know that it originates from fish that come from an aquaculture farm. This is a practice known to be highly sustainable, using very few chemicals in feeding that might contaminate the collagen. Furthermore, the process for extracting the collagen is chemical-free. The product is never irradiated whilst the purity and integrity of the collagen are maintained at all times.
We believe taste is an important factor for collagen supplements. This is because a good taste will help people incorporate it into their daily routine and stick with it in the long-term. Research has shown that Naticol has no fishy or unpleasant taste to it. This means we were able to incorporate it into our liquid formula along with high-quality natural flavourings. The resulting tropical fruit taste isn’t tarnished by any other unwanted tastes.
It may seem like a minor detail, but many of our customers say they have stuck with Kollo over other supplements because of the taste.
Generally speaking, we felt that the feedback from customers was more positive overall for Naticol than for Peptan. There are many clinical studies into the safety and effectiveness of Naticol marine collagen. What's more, there are 2,000+ consumer reviews that average 5-stars on many sites.
There is a general consensus among consumers that Naticol is a powerful collagen peptide source. It will help you experience the benefits you want from your collagen product. This helped us make the decision to choose it over the competition.
How does Kollo use the Naticol marine collagen peptides?
We put 10 grams of premium-grade Naticol collagen peptides into every sachet of our unique liquid formulation. That means you get a high daily dosage that has research-backed benefits for your skin, joints, bones and more. We supply it as a liquid shot that you mix into water each day. This guarantees convenience, a great taste and maximum bioavailability of the active ingredients.
Speaking of ingredients, we also fortify our formula with B vitamins, vitamin C and l-lysine. This boosts the effectiveness of your collagen-producing engine upon receiving the fuel from the collagen peptides.
We want you to experience the greatest benefit from Kollo. As such, we have pulled out all the stops to provide a potent formulation of complementary ingredients. These will both fuel and maintain the mechanisms by which your body synthesises endogenous collagen.
Peptan collagen vs Naticol: final thoughts
In reality, there is very little to choose between Naticol and Peptan collagen. We went with the former for the reasons detailed above, but Kollo would still be a fantastic product if we had opted for Peptan. The reason is that we have worked hard to ensure you get maximum benefit from our supplement. This is achieved by making a number of carefully-considered choices.
The things that make Kollo great are:
A high dosage of collagen
The quality and purity of the collagen peptides
Ease of use
A great taste
The high bioavailability of the liquid format
A unique formulation of additional ingredients
The general look and feel of the brand
