Our processing facility meets the highest global standards to produce hydrolyzed collagen peptides that are certified hypoallergenic, Kosher, Halal, and Non-GMO.

Why is fish collagen better than bovine (from cows)?

The bio-availability of fish collagen is 1.5 times faster than that from bovine collagen. This is the rate of absorption in the bloodstream through the intestinal wall.

Fish collagen is also cleaner & safer, free from Mad Cow disease, Hoof-and-Mouth diseases and common bird viruses.
