Collagen Absorption Into the Body
Marine Collagen & Hydrolysis
Shore Magic® collagen is 95 percent bioavailable, making it the most easily absorbed collagen on the market. Other lower-quality supplements typically have 5 percent bioavailability or less. It is essential that we replenish our body’s supply of collagen, and the safest and most effective source is marine collagen derived from wild deep-sea fish skins. This is the purest foundational material when compared to bovine, porcine and fish scales.
Hydrolysis is the technique used to break collagen protein down into smaller, individual peptides. Research indicates that collagen peptide extracted from fish skins has a superior bioavailability and digestibility compared to other collagen products due to lower molecular weight. This allows the collagen to be absorbed at a higher level through the intestinal barrier into the bloodstream and carried throughout the body.
