Are you still confused about collagen?
Fret not! We are going to tell you everything about it and share 5 lip smacking recipes using the best source of collagen -Wellbeing Nutrition’s Pure Korean Marine Collagen Peptides.
Come the early twenties and your body starts to lose 1.5% of its natural collagen every year. Since collagen makes up most of your body, you really do need collagen supplements to ensure overall wellbeing.
Collagen is primarily obtained from four sources - Bovine, porcine, poultry, and marine. Plant-based collagen is not collagen but a collection of ingredients that help bolster your body’s own collagen production. Research tells that marine collagen is superior to that of bovine or porcine sources, owing to its high absorption rate and bioavailability. Also consuming supplements that contain hydrolyzed collagen or peptides are better choices since they are easy to digest.
For best results and efficacy, it is important to go for a high quality and research-backed collagen supplement. Wellbeing Nutrition’s Pure Marine Collagen is a patented and scientifically researched formulation.
A highly efficacious solution created using innovative science, following global standards of development. These Pure Multi Collagen Type I & III Peptides are hydrolyzed to a low 3000 Dalton molecular weight to make it the purest, best collagen on earth and deliver best results.

Collagen is the most prevalent protein in our body, making up about one third of the total protein composition, and its deficiency impacts the health of our skin, hair, nails, tendons, ligaments, bones and joints.
Loss of collagen leads to premature signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines, thinner hair, brittle nails and weak joints. Studies have shown that depletion of collagen in our hollow organs like arteries, intestines, stomach, and the like lead to poor gut health and cardiovascular diseases.
