Product Description - Vital Proteins Marine Collagen Wild-Caught Non-GMO Unflavored Stick Pack 10 g
What is Marine Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, and is a key constituent of all connective tissues. Collagen provides the infrastructure of the musculoskeletal system, essential for mobility.Peptides are short chain amino acids naturally derived from collagen protein.
These natural peptides are highly bio-available, digestible and soluble in cold water. The intake of collagen ensures the cohesion, elasticity, and regeneration of skin, hair, tendon, cartilage, bones, and joints.**
Collagen is a natural and healthy ingredient that has been used for centuries. Collagen-rich foods are a large part of traditional diets. Our ancestors utilized whole-animal nutrition, which provided an abundant amount of collagen, the native form of gelatin. Over time, we have lost touch with this powerful, healing superfood.

What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It is a primary bulding block of skin, hair, nails, bones, tendons, joints, and cartilage. It is considered the "glue that holds the body together."
Why do we need Collagen?
We believe that whole food based nutrition containing collagen is essential for one's overall health, fitness and wellbeing. Our ancestors utilized sustainable whole animal nutrition, which provided an abundant amount of collagen. Over the past century modern food processing has removed this natural and healthy protein from our diets. Collagen is vital for our body and is the basic building block of skin, hair, nails, bones and joints. When we get older, the production of collagen begins to slow down and cell structures start losing their strength. Collagen provides the building blocks for skin, hair, tendon, cartilage, bones and joints. Supplementing with collagen is a vital way to help your body rejuvenate and stay youthful. Collagen peptides supply amino acids that are needed to build new collagen. Collagen peptides are high in specific amino acids such as Glycine and Proline that are especially needed for the production of new collagen. The collagen peptides stimulate certain cells (fibroblasts, osteoblasts) to build new collagen. Supplementation with collagen peptides can support connective tissue health in athletes and could reduce the exercise induced increase of urinary collagen crosslinks. Supplementation with 30 - 70 grams of collagen peptides per day showed a reduction of risk for injuries on muscle, tendons, and ligaments in athletes.
Bone and Joint Support
Collagen represents up to 90% of organic bone mass and is a major component of ligaments, joints, and tendons. Supplementing our diet to ensure that our bodies are enriched with collagen is an important key to good health and a full life. Several studies on collagen, which represents 90% of organic bone mass, suggest that orally administering collagen peptides may provide beneficial effects on bone metabolism without obvious undesirable effects. Several studies show that a daily intake of 10g of collagen peptides for 4 to 24 weeks may increase bone mass density.

Vital Proteins helps people feel better and live fuller lives through sustainably-sourced nutrition products, promoting health, fitness and natural beauty. They do that by providing nourishing collagen and promoting the production of collagen - an essential nutrient stripped from our diets by modern food-processing.

Vital Proteins believes that if you want to, you can make the most out of every moment you're given - that your body shouldn't be a limitation, but a catalyst.
Vital Proteins' products are natural sources of essential proteins, sourced from pasture-raised cows in Brazil and New Zealand and wild-caught fish in Hawaii.
