Collagen is the main structural protein in the human body constituting 70% of our dry-mass skin content. Collagen fibres provide the infrastructure for elastin, which maintains skin elasticity. Detailed information about collagen can be found here.
It’s a form of collagen which is obtained when collagen fibers are broken down into small collagen chains also known as "collagen peptides". This process is known as "Hydrolysis". Information about this type of collagen, and its benefits, can be found here.
Absolute Collagen is a nifty little product - it contains marine collagen and aims to provide you with optimum skin rejuvenation and tissue renewal. Find out how it works here.

Absolute Collagen does NOT contain any shellfish or crustacean. However, it is sourced from farmed fish and is not recommended for those with allergies to fish.
Our collagen is derived from hydrolysed Peptan Peptides sourced from the skin of freshwater fish heading for human consumption and therefore not sourced purely for its collagen. It is supplied by a respected European manufacturer and is certified fit for human consumption. Our suppliers follow a code of conduct.
Studies have shown that liquid solutions perform better absorption into the blood stream compared to tablet form - giving greater bioavailability and absorbing faster. Further studies into this can be found here, here and here. Our flavoured formula is also very kind on the lining of the stomach.

As Absolute Collagen is 100% natural and does not contain any shell fish/crustaceans, you should be absolutely fine to take the supplement whilst pregnant and post-natal. We have been featured in Mother and Baby magazine However, if you have any concerns we recommend contacting a health professional for advice.
Each 10ml dose contains 7.7 grams of protein. Absolute Collagen in a smoothie or cold pressed juice post-workout is a healthier and purer alternative to sugared protein bars or bodybuilding shakes.

This is a common misconception. Traditionally it was thought that all protein is broken down and digested in the same manner. However, in recent years, more and more studies have been conducted with scientific evidence showing this to be untrue. In fact, after ingestion, collagen peptides have been shown to resist peptidase digestion and are absorbed into the blood circulation system at relatively high levels.
Peptides derived from marine collagen help with the formation of collagen by stimulating fibroblast growth and encouraging the production of extracellular matrix components, meaning it stimulates your own system into creating collagen. Numerous studies have concluded that the absorption rate of deep-sea collagen by the human body is as high as 95%-98%, but will vary depending on an individual’s body condition and health. Read what Dr Stefanie Williams, medical director at European Dermatology London (eudelo.com) had to say here.
Liquid supplements have been shown to be more effective than pills or powders as a delivery mechanism. One 10ml sachet of Absolute Collagen contains the same amount of active ingredients than 10 to 15 pills in a more easily digestible format.
Because it is sourced from fish, marine collagen is protected from diseases and viruses that can affect animal products such as Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (“Mad Cow Disease”), Foot-and-Mouth Disease and Bird Viruses.
There are many products and brands that claim their collagen supplement or collagen builder contains collagen or hydrolysed collagen. Typically they do not contain any hydrolysed collagen or collagen peptides. Instead, they are mostly made up of 3 amino acids glycine, proline & hydroxyproline which together represent about 50% total amino acid content of the collagen helix chain.
You need up to 18 different amino acids in the right quantities and ratio to create a collagen molecule. These products also lack other minor but important amino acids necessary to construct a complete collagen molecule helix chain. Which is why Absolute Collagen formula contains hydrolysed marine collagen.
Research shows that due to its very low molecular weight, hydrolysed collagen is absorbed at a higher level into the bloodstream and circulated throughout the body more easily than other forms of collagen such as gelatin.
When it comes to beauty and health products, the popularity of fish-derived collagen continues to grow. This is due primarily to a preference for marine ingredients over those sourced from beef, pork, or chicken. Fish collagen is also free from the risk of pathogens that cause diseases such as bovine spongiform encephalopathy.
