- What is collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body, accounting for about one-third of its protein composition.
It’s one of the major building blocks of bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Collagen is also found in many other body parts, including blood vessels, corneas, and teeth.
You can think of it as the 'glue' that holds all these things together. In fact, the word comes from the Greek word kólla, which means glue.
Collagen is a protein that provides structure to much of your body, including your bones, skin, tendons, and ligaments.
- Why do we need to supplement our diets with collagen?
Unfortunately, starting at around age 20, natural collagen production decreases by 1% each year.
As Collagen decreases with age it means our hair and nails become weaker and our skin becomes thinner and drier and starts to sag and wrinkle. Our joints also start to feel the effects through aches and pains. Adding Sea Amour Wellness 100% Pure Marine Collagen supplement to your diet can help slow down the ageing process.
- What type of collagen is best?
There are 16 types of collagens in the human body all of which play a vital role.
Type I Collagen found in Hydrolysed Marine Collagen has been proven to improve skins elasticity and assist with anti-aging, boosting skins appearance and giving you that radiant glow.
Type I helps form our bones, skin, and other tissues. It’s also the most abundant type of collagen found in the human body.
It’s the strongest type, meaning it works the most effectively to heal and rebuild in your body.
- Marine Collagen or Bovine Collagen?
The biggest difference between these two collagen supplements is the source.
Marine collagen comes from fish, while bovine collagen comes from cows. Bovine is created from cow hides, and marine is made from fish skin and scales.
Marine collagen is primarily a Type I collagen, while bovine is typically a mixture of Type I and Type III.
Marine collagen is well-known as the collagen that helps provide a foundation for strong and glowing skin.
*Always check where your collagen is sourced from … where did it come from? Here at Sea Amour Wellness we are completely transparent in where our 100% Pure Wild-Caught Hydrolysed Marine Collagen comes from.
- What is the difference between collagen and collagen peptides?
While collagen is big structural proteins, collagen peptides are a hydrolysed form of collagen, shorter peptide chains. The collagen molecules are big which makes it harder for the body to absorb and use. The collagen undergoes an enzymatic hydrolysis process in which the collagen loses its gelling effect and becomes water soluble in turn digestible within the body.
The peptides provide the necessary amino acids for the development of connective tissues.
An intake of collagen peptides can stimulate and boost the body’s own ability to produce collagen.

- Collagen Science
Our 8 Week clinical study to measure the impact of our marine collagen effect on the skin resulted in a significant increase in skin moisture, showing an average improvement of 34.8% rising to 80.1% at the highest.
Our Marine Collagen is highly bioavailable, bioactive, neutral in taste and smell, is non-GMO, and free from carbohydrates, fat, preservatives and additives.
Type 1 is the most common types of collagen and is the main type in humans. Collagen obtained from marine sources are of type 1, and is produced and organised in cells in skin and connective tissues as well as playing an important role in bone tissue.

Studies have shown that by an oral intake of liquid marine collagen peptides the age-related, degenerative processes in the cell metabolism of the skin can be slowed down or even reversed.
Only small peptides with a molecular weight of approximately 0,3 to 6 kDa can be effectively absorbed by the body and stimulate the collagen synthesis in the extracellular matrix sufficiently.
