Planet Paleo - Marine Collagen Powder (from sustainable fish) Made in the UK
Marine Collagen powder by Planet Paleo UK 100% sourced from the wild (never farmed) and sustainably-caught fish off the coast of France.
Fish collagen peptides are considered Type 1 collagen, the most abundant type in the body and the peptide molecules are smaller in size than bovine, making them more bioavailable and absorbable. Also, marine collagen is a rich source of amino acids such as Glycine, Proline and Hydroxyproline, normally low in other protein sources.
One scoop of Planet Paleo's Marine Collagen powder provides a high-strength dose of easy-to-absorb Type 1 hydrolysed collagen (Collagen Hydrolysate). It is also very easy to mix because it has been finely powdered.
Sustainably wild-caught fish from France
Planet Paleo's Marine Collagen powder is wild, sustainably caught fish off the coast of France. The fishermen are committed to responsible and sustainable fishing practices in line with EU quotas. Planet Paleo sources fish solely from their natural habitat sustainably and never from farms.
Type 1 collagen, very rich in natural amino acids
Type 1 fish collagen, the most abundant type of collagen in the body, and Dr Axe calls it The Anti-Aging Protein with the Best Bioavailability because it is a rich source of amino acids such as Glycine and Proline, normally low in other protein sources. Marine collagen is also particularly rich in the amino acid Hydroxyproline, an essential component of skin, blood vessel walls, and other connective tissues.
Fish collagen peptides are high in essential and non-essential amino acids. According to Dr Axe, fish collagen is absorbed 1.5 times more efficiently into the body (has superior bioavailability) over porcine or bovine collagen.
Planet Paleo's Founder Ben Shouler, ethical British manufacturer
“I wanted to create a brand to take paleo to the next level. One that educates people on the best principles whilst leaving room for evolution.’ – Ben Shouler, Founder of Planet Paleo.
Ben Shouler, a nutritional therapist and naturopath with a background in nutraceutical research, worked with many of the leading companies in the natural health industry in an educational capacity and has a strong understanding of the complex dynamics of nutrition and herbal medicine supplementation.
Whilst passionately studying the more scientific side of naturopathic medicines, Ben Shouler has always been fascinated in ancient remedies and the more esoteric, energetic approach to traditional medicine. Ben Shouler founded Planet Paleo with these two approaches in mind. Their paleo supplements and formulations are of the highest quality and made to practitioner standards with significant quantities of nutrients. All products are GMO, gluten and dairy free. Planet Pale uses only use ethically-sourced ingredients and are committed to animal welfare practices.
For thousands of years, collagen-rich foods have been a key part of diets all over the world. For as long as our Paleo ancestors have been cooking food over a fire they would have been eating every part of the animals they caught – including the bones. Bone broths being one of the most nourishing foods on the planet.
The word ‘collagen’ is derived from the greek word ‘kolla’, meaning glue and is the substance that literally holds the body together. It is the most abundant protein in the body. Its main role is to provide structural support and strength, however, it also protects the vital organs and provides flexibility, support and movement. It is also needed for the replacement and restoration of dead skin cells and to strengthen tendons and ligaments. Planet Paleo collagen powders are highly bio-available, naturally high in protein and provide the body with key building blocks for better health and wellness.
