The best source of Type I Collagen comes from the sea!

Collagen is not only suitable for health-conscious women, but for everyone. Because has benefits for the entire body. Did you know that saltwater collagen is a real basic supplement? Type I collagen is the most common type in our body and is important for more than just a beautiful appearance. It also nourishes the muscles, tendons, cartilage, bones, blood vessels, teeth and the intestines.

Our collagen-rich tissues are continuously working to store and use the amino acids from collagen hydrolyzate, so they remain strong and healthy. By taking a collagen hydrolyzate type I powder you can easily enjoy the benefits without having to put in much effort. This way you can get through the days and years active, radiant and vital.

A third of all proteins in the human body consist of collagen. By the time you're 30, collagen production can decline by about 1% per year unless you take action! This is one of the reasons why collagen peptides are suitable for people of all ages and stages of life

It is a fact that collagen production in our body decreases as we age. In general, you can follow the guidelines below:

These numbers show how collagen production in our bodies decreases as we age

• At the age of 40, our body's collagen production drops by a quarter

• At the age of 60, collagen production is half that of our younger years

• At age 80, our body produces four times less collagen than it previously produced in younger years.

Fortunately, with the right lifestyle choices, nutrition and extra support, you can support the body's natural collagen production, with all the positive consequences that entails.

Collagen from Paleo Powders

Paleo Powders marine fish collagen is made from the skins of deep-living marine fish and is an extremely good and natural source of collagen. About 70% - 80% of these fish skins consist of pure collagen, and contain nourishing amino acids such as glycine, alanine, proline and hydroxyproline.

Because sustainability, in addition to quality and effectiveness, is important to us, we have chosen sea fish collagen. Now the fish skins that normally end up in a waste stream are processed into a high-quality and very useful product.

We believe it is important that only wild-caught fish is used that is caught in a sustainable and traceable manner. The fishing area is in the North Atlantic Ocean near Norway. This area is known for its clean waters.

When choosing saltwater collagen, we not only looked at quality and effectiveness, but also at sustainability. Now the fish skins that normally end up in a waste stream are processed into a high-quality and very useful product.


We only use wild-caught fish that is caught sustainably and traceably. The fishing area is in the North Atlantic Ocean near Norway, known for its clean waters. This way we can ensure that our product is not only of high quality and effective, but is also produced sustainably and responsibly.

Wild-caught marine fish skins provide one of the purest and highest-quality sources of collagen peptides. These peptides are small protein fragments that are created by cutting the long collagen protein chains from fish skins into smaller pieces. This mild hydrolysis process preserves the nutritional value of the fish skins and is free of unwanted chemicals.

Cutting the protein chains into pieces ensures that the collagen peptides become water soluble and have a higher bioactivity. Due to the rapid and good absorption, the peptides can enter the bloodstream unaffected and intact. The small particles and the low molecular weight of only 3 kDa are the two factors that make the absorption of marine fish collagen hydrolyzate so good.

After ingestion of hydrolyzed marine fish collagen peptides, the peptides are transported through the small intestine and the network of blood vessels to the bloodstream and then distributed throughout the body. It is well documented that the inner layer of the skin (the dermis) in particular absorbs these peptides and that they can remain there for 14 days after ingestion.

Interestingly, a recent study (randomized, double-blind and placebo-controlled) has shown that daily intake of just 5 grams of marine fish collagen hydrolyzate for 4 weeks improves skin elasticity, especially in areas of the skin exposed to sunlight. The effect remained present even 4 weeks after stopping intake.

PS Did you know that not only does collagen production decrease as you get older, but that you also lose muscle mass? In inactive people, the loss increases about 3-5% per 10 years from the age of 30. However, the loss of muscle mass also occurs in active people, but is less significant.

It is therefore important to consume enough proteins, especially after the age of 30! As you get older, you lose muscle mass. Men and women around the age of 60 need even more protein after a workout than younger men, and it is recommended to consume at least 30 grams of protein per meal for optimal results.

Collagen is a pure source of protein because it consists of 95% protein. By taking collagen you get a high dose of proteins. That is why with collagen as a protein source you actually kill two birds with one stone: you not only support the production of collagen in the body, but you also provide the body with high-quality proteins for the muscles.
