Why is Marine Collagen Making Waves?

Before we jump into the deep end of Marine Collagen…pun intended…let’s cover some basics. Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the human body that makes up connective tissues—like those in our bones, muscles, tendons, organs, and cartilage. Made from amino acids, collagen supports our skin, joints, hair, nails, and digestion. 

Sounds amazing, right? It is! Until we hit our mid-20's and natural collagen production starts to dwindle. Aside from a healthy diet of collagen-rich foods, consuming collagen supplements daily can help give your internal production line a boost.

Where does that collagen come from, you ask?

Well, from animal sources, such as bovine (cow), porcine (pig), or poultry and eggs. You may have heard otherwise, but there are no true vegan or plant-based collagen supplements.

So, what’s a person to do when they want to reap the benefits of collagen but either can’t consume animal-derived collagen (due to health concerns like allergies), or choose not to (due to personal preferences or dietary restrictions)?

Cue the Marine Collagen!

Great Lakes Wellness Daily Marine Collagen
Marine collagen is made from… (you guessed it!) …the scales and skin of fish. Marine collagen works the same way as bovine collagen, by supplying the body with necessary amino acids to help build and restore healthy connective tissue.

Daily Marine Collagen Peptides from Great Lakes Wellness is made of one simple ingredient—wild-caught, sustainably sourced whitefish—making it a great option for flexitarians, pescatarians, and others seeking alternatives to bovine collagen. 

We know what you’re probably thinking…but Jill Schildhouse from Clean Eating Magazine already covered that concern.

“If one of your first objections to marine collagen is worry about a fishy smell or taste, you’re in the clear with Great Lakes Wellness Daily Marine Collagen.”
Since the fish oils are removed in the hydrolyzation process, there’s no fishy smell or taste. It’s unflavored, easy to digest, and dissolves quickly. With 12 grams of collagen per serving and no sugar, you can add it to drinks and recipes to support your healthy aging journey!
