Research is key when choosing a supplement.
At withinUs Natural Health, we are proud to provide only premium grade products to our customers. Our team stands behind our products 100%, and we are happy to share how our collagen is sourced, how it is hydrolyzed, and the stringent testing it goes through. We fully believe that knowledge is power, and objective information should be the deciding factor when choosing what goes into your body.
withinUs TruMarine collagen is the highest grade of collagen available in the North American market. How many people can say that about their product?
Our collagen is Non-GMO Project verified and comes from wild, sustainably caught fish. Sustainable seafood is caught in a way that doesn’t harm the environment or other species of fish and is not overfished. Overfishing is the main cause of declining fish populations globally. The fish we use are caught for human consumption and the scales are used for withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen.
Fish scales are 50% collagen and 50% calcium. TruMarine Collagen is broken down by a natural enzymatic process (no heat, acid or chemicals), stripping the calcium away and leaving 100% ultra-pure marine collagen. Our product is carefully tested screening for all metals, including mercury.
In comparison to other collagen sources, TruMarine™ Collagen (derived solely from fish scales) has fewer impurities, which ultimately affects the quality as well as the taste and smell. Our marine collagen it is virtually tasteless and odorless, in a pure powder form, making it not only easy to add into hot or cold liquids without affecting the flavor, but also it is better absorbed into your body (greater bioavailability) than other sources. Other collagen supplements may not offer the same quality and could contain additives, such as sweeteners or artificial flavors, or put in capsule form - this is often used to mask the unpleasant taste that comes from the impurities in the product.
When selecting supplements it is important to look for an NPN (Natural Product Number).
Before a natural health product can appear on shelves, or be sold in Canada, it must be submitted to Health Canada for review. Health Canada is a strict regulatory body, which puts the product through stringent testing to ensure its safety and effectiveness. When a product successfully passes these tests, it is issued a product licence along with an eight-digit NPN, which legally must appear on the label. Health Canada also ensures that the claims a natural health product declares on their packaging can be substantiated with certifications and/or independent clinical trials. Health Canada reviews packaging and even outlines what can be said thus, making certain that a product does not advertise "false claims' or 'exaggerations' on their packaging.
withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen is broken down using enzymatic hydrolyzation. Using enzymes rather than harsh acids and heat to break down the marine collagen produces a low molecular weight - about 3000-5000 Daltons - and makes the product highly bioavailable (meaning that it absorbs quickly into the bloodstream). Other popular consumable sources of collagen, and even bone broth, cartilage and fish skin, have a much higher molecular weight, making it difficult for the body to break down and absorb them effectively. The hydrolyzation process that withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen undergoes is an important process that ensures maximum absorption, allowing your body to utilize as much of the product as possible. Capsules are harder for your body to break down (not as bioavailable to your body) and often requires 10-20 capsules to our one scoop.
Ultra-pure withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen is characterized by its unique amino acid composition, offering a high concentration of specific amino acids with special nutri-functional properties that are beneficial to health and beauty.
Collagen promotes joint health by helping to repair joint matrix degeneration and improve long-term joint comfort and mobility.
In comparison to other supplements recommended for pain, related to joint degeneration, withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen actually helps improve overall joint health as opposed to temporarily relieving pain. Collagen works from within the joints, enhancing joint comfort and mobility and ultimately reducing joint pain. withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen also helps improve joint health by strengthening cartilage and overall joint structure.
withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen also helps maintain bone health and restore bone mineral density, which reduces the risk of pain and stiffness associated with osteopenia and osteoarthritis.
Our product slows down the aging process by providing the body with the nutritional building blocks it needs. In particular, marine Collagen contains much larger amounts of the amino acids glycine, proline and hydroxyproline than other proteins. These amino acids are key for promoting healthy tissue growth by the cells themselves.
In addition to slowing the aging process, withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduces UVB-induced skin damage and increases skin hydration and suppleness, all are paramount for overall skin health!
It is important to know exactly what you are putting into your body- what it is made from, where it comes from, and the bioavailability. We are proud to be a transparent company, offering as much information as possible to our customers, making your research easy.
Knowledge IS power, so take the time and do the research.
Your body will thank you!
