Fish Collagen

Our Collagen from Fish Scale or Skin is an active polypeptide extracted and purified from fish scales or fish skin using an advanced unique technology. Our fish collagen is high in protein content, low in ash, high water solubility, low molecular weight, and no fishy odor.

Our fish collagen attributes help improve absorption and lead to a more efficient collagen synthesis in different parts of the body. Which in turn, helps to improve bone formulation, rehabilitate arthritis, inhibit the raise of blood pressure, and protect the mucosa of alimentary tract; not to mention its beautification effects to skin, hair, and nails.

Additionally, since Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) has become a concern, fish skin collagen has been attracting attention as an alternative to livestock based collagen.

We will work with you and your application to determine what size and texture would work best.
