4 Big Benefits of Col Du Marine Collagen


It’s no secret that collagen plays an important role in maintaining healthy skin. Touted as a hero anti-ageing ingredient, it helps to support skin structure and plumpness for a radiant, youthful complexion. 

Unfortunately, our natural collagen production slows down as we age, often resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. This is why many anti-ageing skincare products aim to increase the production of this important protein. 

However, skincare isn’t the only way to turn back the hands of time – collagen supplementation might just help to support your body from the inside out…

Why Supplement With Collagen?

Collagen the most abundant protein found in the body. It acts as a building block for healthy skin, hair, nails, and connective tissue.

Whilst collagen can be found in foods such as bone broth, recent studies[1] suggest it’s not always a reliable source when compared to collagen supplements. Not to mention, supplemental collagen can also be more convenient, as it can easily be added to water, smoothies, and even baked goods!

Here at 5th Avenue, we’re proud to offer Col du Marine Collagen Peptides. Containing 100% pure type 1 and 3 collagen peptides (two of the most prevalent forms found in the body[2]), this collagen has been shown to be easier to absorb than other forms on the market.

Four Key Collagen Benefits

The wonders of collagen go more than skin deep. Here are four key benefits of Col Du Marine Collagen Peptides:

1. Youthful Skin

As mentioned above, our body’s natural production of collagen slows as we get older, causing visible signs of aging. The good news? Studies show that collagen supplementation can improve skin elasticity, and reduce dryness and wrinkles[3,4] for a plumped up, youthful radiance.

2. Healthier Hair

Keratin is the main protein found in hair, and collagen contains many of the amino acids required for keratin production. Studies show that fish-based collagen can act as a powerful antioxidant, potentially helping to fend off free radical damage that’s associated with hair thinning[5,6].

3. Stronger Nails

Amongst the hustle and bustle of everyday life, brittle nails are a common issue – particularly as the ageing process reduces your collagen count. Fortunately, supplemental collagen may play an important role. A 2017 study showed that collagen peptides improved nail growth and reduced symptoms of brittle nails[7]

4. Protected Joints

As you age, the natural decline in collagen levels can potentially lead to joint issues like osteoarthritis. But fear not: studies show that collagen consumption can reduce joint pain and lead to increased physical activity[8].

Why Col Du Marine Collagen?

Here at 5th Avenue, we recently started offering Col Du Marine Collagen peptides to help support your body from the inside out. We opted for this brand for a number of reasons:

Firstly, it contains 100% pure type 1 and 3 collagen peptides, sourced from sustainable, wild and aquacultural sources. This is key, as fish-based collagen has been shown to be more bioavailable than other types.

Col Du Marine collagen is also micro-granulated, hydrolyzed, and contains the highest possible peptide concentration – making it as easy as possible for your body to absorb.

If that wasn’t enough, each and every container goes through a strict quality control and testing procedure, resulting in a clean, natural end product with 100% neutral smell, taste + flavor. 

How to Use Col Du Marine Collagen?

Col Du Marine is 100% soluble, meaning you can add it to your favourite beverage, smoothie, or even in a salad dressing. Simply mix in two dosing spoons (2.5g each) and enjoy!

Col Du Marine can be enjoyed on an empty stomach or with food, and it’s recommended you use the product for a minimum of 12 weeks to enjoy maximum benefits.
