Marine Collagen Capsules

Anti-Ageing, Healthy Tissue, Skin and Hair

90 Vege-Capsules – Premium Grade, 100% Pure & Undiluted.

 Marine Collagen is sustainably sourced hydrolysed Marine Collagen from the pristine coastal waters of New Zealand. It is naturally composed of the same 20 types of amino acids that are found in the body, helping it provide support from the inside out to nourish, hydrate and restore healthy tissue, skin, hair and nails.

The grains of Collagen are smaller than what is found in most other brands which is important as it helps it to be absorbed faster. As a natural source of collagen it helps to strengthen and repair joint & bone health as well as improving externally seen factors such as skin elasticity and other signs of ageing.

NutriNZ Marine Collagen is made up of premium grade hydrolyzed Type II Marine Collagen peptides powder sourced from the pristine coastal waters of New Zealand. Collagen is a peptides powder vital proteins, a glue-like substance that holds the body together. It is the most abundant structural protein in the body, and from the age of around 25, our bodies start to decrease our collagen production levels rapidly.

Adding NutriNZ Marine Collagen to your daily routine is very beneficial in maintaining collagen levels in the body and is well-known and researched to have the following benefits:

  • Promotes collagen production
  • Combats the signs and effects of aging internally and externally
  • Supports skin elasticity and firmness
  • Helps strengthen hair and nails
  • Supports healthy tissue regeneration
  • Strengthens bones and connective tissue, improving mobility
  • Helps to regulate sleep patterns.

The NutriNZ Advantage:

  • The grains of NutriNZ’s extracted Collagen are smaller than what is found in most other brands, which is important as it helps it to be absorbed faster.
  • Collagen tissues such as skin, bone, and scales constitute about 30 percent of marine fish processing waste. So utilizing this extremely beneficial aspect of marine fish helps to offset what is perceived as waste in the fishing industry.

Note: It is important for new customers to bear in mind that everybody’s metabolism and absorption rate varies. Most supplements can take up to 3 months to make a difference. We advise you to consider this for your order. There is no limit to long term use.

Not recommended for people allergic to shellfish/seafood or during pregnancy and lactation.

Why Marine Collagen over other Animal Collagen?
Other animal collagen is typically made from beef and/or pork skin; in these cases it is very hard to remove calcium and fatty ingredients. However, Marine Collagen does not contain these components, making it a much purer, more beneficial and easily absorbed supplement. This also means that people on a diet or people who have high blood pressure have no problem in consuming the supplement.

What is Type II Collagen?
Collagen refers to natural protein that can be found in various parts of the body, including the skin and bones. The differences between the collagen types are generally based on their unique chemical compositions. Type II collagen is prominently found in cartilage and also in the vitreous humour. This type of collagen is used for the treatment of several conditions, including arthritis, cellulite, muscles, tendons, skin, hair and nails.
Tests have shown that type II collagen contains a substance known as chondroitin sulphate. This compound has been credited with having an anti-inflammatory effect on certain connective tissues of the body. Many studies have concluded that this compound is safer and has fewer side effects than other anti-inflammatory preparations.

Is Marine Collagen better than hydrolysed collagen?
High quality collagen powders are hydrolysed, meaning they are broken up into smaller peptides that are easier for our bodies to use. Because it consists of these smaller peptides, marine collagen has superior bioavailability than other types of

Can men use collagen as well?
Yes! Collagen can help man support their muscle, joints, ligaments, skin and hair growth.

What’s in collagen?
Collagen is composed of a series of amino acids, including glutamine, arginine, proline and glycine. Amino acids are the building blocks for proteins and are essential to synthesizing hormones and moving chemical messages through the body.
As for collagen, amino acids bind together to form procollagen, a precursor for the protein that’s still strong enough to provide strength and structure. To become collagen, procollagen undergoes a grouping process, forming long collagen chains with more than a thousand amino acids. Those chains arrange themselves side by side and bind together into fibrils, or three-dimensional helices. Many of the unique capabilities of collagen – for example, being elastic and forgiving enough to be stretched without tearing – are thanks to the unique properties of these triple helices. They bind closely together to form a dense sheath of cells and act as the foundation of body materials, whether it’s in your epidermis (upper layer of skin), your gut, or anywhere else.

What’s made from collagen?
Your body’s cells, skeleton and internal organs are held together by collagen. Collagen fibrils bind side by side, these are the foundation of tissues that make up organs, including our largest organ – the skin. Collagen is also a fundamental element of bones, when combined with minerals. It even makes up the majority of tendons and cartilage. Nails, hair, muscles and teeth are also made from collagen.
