In this day and age, collagen has been colloquially associated with injectables and fillers, but for many insightful men and women (including Jennifer Aniston!) ingestible collagen is widely known as the key ingredient for glowing skin and healthy bodies. So, why is it becoming a health regimen mainstay and how does it protect existing collagen while reversing previous damage? And what is the best collagen peptide to consume?
"Usually I'll have a shake, with some sort of pure protein, then bananas, blueberries, frozen cherries, stevia, a vegetable mix of dynamic greens that goes in there, maca powder, and a little cacao. There's a collagen peptide that I've been loving -- I've been seeing a difference! My nails are stronger and there's a healthier... how do you explain it? A glow. It's sort of that working from the inside-out thing." - Jennifer Aniston
Collagen is one of the most important structural proteins in our bodies that plays a pivotal role in ensuring cohesion, elasticity, and regeneration of youthful skin, bones, tendons, ligaments, and skeletal muscles. As we age, we lose approximately 1% of our collagen each year after our early to mid 20s.
The idea behind ingestible collagen peptides supports the age old saying, “you are what you eat.” withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen peptides are composed of 18 amino acids, three of which are essential for keeping our bodies running like well-oiled machines: glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline. As we age, declining levels of these amino acids will result in dehydrated, sagging skin, weak nails, dry hair, and muscle & joint inflammation.
Drinking collagen rather than applying collagen creams or via injectables helps activate synthesis production in the body to repair connective tissues necessary to jumpstart our system again. Another key factor, besides quality of the product is the clinical research on bioavailability (absorption rate) of collagen peptides, which is often overlooked but sets withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen apart from lower quality collagen peptides.
Research and clinical trials have shown that fish scale collagen peptides have the highest bioavailability (absorption) over bovine or porcine collagens. While bone broth is nutrient-dense, its molecules are too large to be absorbed into the bloodstream. withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen has been hydrolyzed and broken down into the lowest molecular weight to ensure high levels of absorption.
“Collagen has long been used globally in foods, cosmetics, personal care and medicine. However, there are certain forms of collagen taken orally that are harder to digest and thus become less bioavailable to the body. TruMarine™ Collagen offers a unique form of collagen peptides that are more bioavailable because the molecules have been partially broken down to allow the peptides to pass through the digestive system and reach skin tissue more effectively.”

Incorporating a high quality marine collagen peptide on a daily basis is clinically proven to improve joint and bone health as well as restore skin health from the inside-out.
While withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen is the highest grade collagen peptide on the market, it is also sustainably sourced, non-GMO Project Verified, stringently tested for all heavy metals, free of additives and preservatives, and soluble in hot or cold liquids — making it perfect for adding into smoothies, juices, lemon water, tea, or coffee.
Smoothies have become an easy, nutritious and convenient way for people to incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables into their daily routine. They make a great ‘on-the-go’ breakfast and can also be a great afternoon energy boost. You can add some amazing ingredients into a smoothie: fresh (or frozen) fruits and vegetables, nuts, hemp/chia seeds, goji berries, and a variety of (dairy & non-dairy) milks. Looking for an idea on how to stir it up? Recently, Jennifer Aniston shared one of her favourite smoothie recipes, and one of the key ingredients is collagen peptide.
