Collagen is the most abundant form of protein in our body, providing us with strength, elasticity, tone and structure. It acts like the ‘glue’ that holds the body together. We require it for healthy skin, connective tissues, muscles and bones. Internally, we have 27 different types of collagen, but there are three types that we use in the most abundance.
Type 1 Collagen primarily goes towards the health of our hair, skin and nails; this type is found in fish and bovine skin.
Type 2 Collagen works best at building connective tissues, ligaments and cartilage, and is found in high amounts in poultry bones and cartilage.
Type 3 Collagen builds muscles and organs and is found in bovine hide.
Since collagen is primarily found in animal skin and connective tissues, it makes sense that supplemental collagen is sourced from the skins, hides, scales, bones and cartilage of animals. Organika’s Salmon Collagen is sourced from the skin of wild salmon, giving an excellent collagen source we don't eat often enough.
If collagen is so abundant, why would we need to supplement? As we age, our endogenous collagen formation naturally decreases. This can be up to 50% by the time we hit age 45. The more active we are, the more of these collagen peptides we need to heal after exercise and sport. Plus lifestyle choices that promote free radical damage like smoking, chronic stress and chemical exposure from our food, water, and personal care products can use up our collagen faster. All these losses can contribute to signs of premature aging, like fine lines and wrinkles, brittle nails, cellulite and dry skin, as well as joint and ligament issues like injuries, weakness and arthritis.
Collagen also has been shown to increase moisture within the body, like in our skin and joints. It is great for healing the digestive tract and reducing inflammation. Look for improved immune responses, mood, blood sugar and bone and joint health with collagen supplementation.

Q: Are your Salmon Collagen capsules pescatarian-friendly?
A: Technically they are not, as the capsules themselves are made from gelatin. But they are paleo and keto friendly.
Q: How is Organika’s Salmon Collagen processed?
A: With our Salmon Collagen, a process called hydrolyzation is used. It is an enzymatic process for breaking collagen down into a smaller molecule, called a peptide, making it easier for the body to absorb and use.
Q: How can I tell if this product is working for me?
A: Signs that your collagen levels have increased include: stronger and faster-growing hair and nails, hydrated skin, reduced appearance of wrinkles, and reduced joint pain.
Q: Have we always been deficient in collagen? Why do we need to supplement now?
A: Collagen used to be quite prevalent in our diet, when we used and ate more of the whole animal. Natural collagen sources like skin, bones, joints and organs were all used regularly in cooking. A long-simmering bone broth or slow-cooked meat on-the-bone stew can provide an abundance of collagen and gelatin. We’re also not cooking at home from scratch as much. Supplementation can make up for our lack of traditional ways of cooking.
Q: What are the various types of collagen supplementation?
A: Adding gelatin powder, bone broth powder or collagen powder to your food and beverages are all amazing ways to supplement with collagen proteins. Organika’s Bovine Gelatin Powder is going to make your foods jelly-like; those proteins are a little more work for your body to digest and absorb but are less processed and contain other synergistic nutrients. Our Chicken and Beef Bone Broth powders are easy to add to hot beverages, soups and stews to fortify them with collagen and other beneficial nutrients found in bone broth. Hydrolyzed collagen powder, like that in Organika’s Enhanced Collagen line or its Marine Collagen are the most versatile – they can be added to hot or cold beverages or food and is already broken down into a format that is the easiest to digest and absorb. BioCell Collagen or Salmon Collagen capsules are alternatives to powders which you may find easier to fit into your lifestyle. Many choices ensure you can easily adopt a collagen supplement into your everyday routine!
