Sometimes you just want to know which collagen to take.

This page will make it easy to get our favorite recommendations for collagen products.

CONSISTENCY

As with any supplement, the key to getting good results is taking the full dosage consistently. You should commit to trying something for at least 12 weeks before starting it.

Most good things take three months to fully kick in.

In addition, making sure to take the full dosage everyday is key. If you need to take 3000 mg per day, but only take 500 mg, it's just not going to work.

So give it time and make sure to take the full dosage!

Collagen Straight Up Marine Collagen Peptides are exclusively derived from the skin and bones of sustainably sourced, wild-caught fish from the Australian Pacific.

These peptides come from a well managed fishery, where fish populations are well managed and protected to avoid overfishing. 

It contains type one collagen and is great for skin health.

Marine collagen is of particular interest due to its very low molecular weight, which makes it quickly and easily absorbed and highly bioavailable.

It mixes easily into any food or beverage (hot or cold) and has little to no taste, unlike many marine collagen products which taste fishy.
