Complete Collagen contains 5 types of collagen from 3 sources of collagen hydrolysate. It is derived from clean sustainable sources from land and sea. Collagen from beef, fish, and eggshell membrane, provide you with collagen types I, II, III, V, and X. It contains vitamin C from acerola to support collagen production. We have also added 5 grams of extra glycine to the formula, giving you a total of 7 grams per serving. Complete Collagen contains only active ingredients, so no unnecessary additives, such as emulsifiers or flavour enhancers. We have tested the product at a third-party laboratory for heavy metals.
Recent scientific studies point to the following benefits of collagen on the appearance of your skin:
Collagen is a protein found in many different parts of the body. Collagen in skin is different from that in cartilage, blood vessels, or bones. The amino acid composition, structure, and function differ for each type of collagen.
At least 26 types of collagen have been defined. The most common are:
Type I collagen is the most abundant collagen in the body, found mainly in skin, hair, nails, bones and ligaments.
Type II collagen is mainly found in cartilage between joints.
Type III collagen is common along with type I in the skin and blood vessels.
Type IV collagen is crucial for the formation of basal membranes, a specific type of thin layer that separates cells from underlying structures.
Type V collagen is found in the skin and placenta and co-occurs with type I.
Type X collagen is part of the bone and cartilage structure.
Each type of collagen contains slightly different amino acids. With a combination supplement, you take the profile of amino acids that your body also uses itself to make collagen. So it's a good strategy to eat different types of collagen if you want to support your own collagen production.
Complete Collagen is a combination supplement containing collagen types I, II, III, V and X.
Collagen varies not only in types, but also between animal species. Fish, egg and beef are excellent sources of collagen. We have used them for Complete Collagen to get the most complete collagen profile possible, and because of their sustainable origin.
Collagen is the longest protein found in the body. Long protein chains are difficult to digest. Hydrolysation improves digestibility by breaking down collagen into small pieces (peptides). This also makes collagen hydrolysate readily soluble in hot and cold liquids.
At NoordCode, we only use enzymatically produced collagen hydrolysate. This requires no heating or chemicals that could damage the protein.
Note: collagen is not a good protein supplement. It is low in BCAAs and tryptophan (essential amino acids). Take collagen for the benefits of glycine.
The basis of NoordCode Complete Collagen is grass-fed bovine collagen hydrolysate. This collagen hydrolysate is also available separately as NoordCode Pure Collagen. The collagen is derived from the skin, bones, tendons and joints of grass-fed, European cattle.
Fish has a different amino acid profile to bovine collagen, making it a good addition to your collagen intake. Naticol® is a pure collagen hydrolysate made from leftover fish skins after filleting. The fish skins come from sustainable, wild-caught fish and farmed fish, in order to use as many different sources as possible. Naticol® thus takes a 'waste product' and turns it into a high-quality collagen supplement neutral in taste.
Naticol® has a Friends of the Sea certificate, certification for fish, seafood from sustainable fisheries, and aquaculture.
The eggshell membrane is the thin membrane directly under the eggshell. This membrane contains not only collagen, but also elastin, hyaluronic acid, glucosamine, and chondroitin. These substances are also common in our skin. Eggshell membrane is therefore an excellent way to get these substances. Ovomet® hydrolysed eggshell membrane is readily bioavailable, just like the bovine and fish collagen in Complete Collagen.
The body uses vitamin C in the production of collagen. NoordCode Complete Collagen therefore contains 125 mg of vitamin C from acerola berries per serving (15 g). Acerola berries are a natural source of vitamin C.
Vitamin C supports normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin, blood vessels, bones & cartilage, teeth & gums.
Furthermore, vitamin C provides the following benefits:
The amino acid glycine is one of the main components of collagen. Many people therefore take a collagen supplement as a natural source of glycine. NoordCode further enhances Complete Collagen with L-glycine. Each 15-gram serving provides 7 grams of glycine, of which 5 grams have been added.
Mix 1 scoop (15 g) into 100 or 200 mL liquid of choice.
For example, mix with water and some lemon juice.
Complete Collagen has a slightly sweet-sour flavour from the acerola and glycine. Combine with drinks or dishes where these flavours already occur or are a nice addition.
One package of NoordCode Complete Collagen contains 500 g, sufficient for 33 portions.
