AMINO ACID PROFILE
The glycine and proline conc. is 10 to 20 times higher than in other proteins. As a result, this type of marine collagen offers nutri-functional properties that cannot be found in other protein sources.
Alanine 8%, Arginine 8%, Glutamic acid 11%, Glycine 20%, Hydroxy-proline 12%, Proline 13%, Essential Amino acids 16% (Leucine, Isoleucine, Lysine, Threonine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Valine, Tryptophan), others 12% (Aspartic acid, Serine + more).
Collagen is the main building block protein that forms your bones, skin, hair, muscles, tendons, and ligaments
Collagen production reduces by 1% every year from 21 onwards. This leads to loss of skin elasticity, which causes wrinkles, dry, thinning and sagging skin.
Loss of collagen also contributes to hair loss, slow hair growth and brittle hair. It can lead to aching joints and slow recovery post injury.
The collagen in 'Dr V Collagen Boost' is broken down into peptides in the gut then absorbed into the blood stream. These peptides are recognised by fibroblasts as collagen fragments which ‘tricks’ fibroblasts to produce more collagen in response to the 'pretend' collagen breakdown.
More About Collagen
Collagen is the most abundant component of the extracellular matrix and is the key protein to give skin its structure. It is surrounded by water to support smooth, firm skin.
Collagen looks like a rope, it has 3 chains wrapped around each other forming a triple helix. This gives incredible tensile strength to the skin.
Clinical studies show age related reduction in collagen synthesis can be reversed by oral administration of specific bioactive collagen peptides.
Collagen fibres are synthesized primarily by the fibroblasts in the deeper layers of the skin. This is why replacement must happen orally.
About Marine Collagen Peptides
These collagen peptides come from the skins of wild-caught ocean fish.
Marine collagen are Type 1 collagen peptides. This is the most abundant in the human body and is found in our skin, hair, bones, tendons and ligaments.
LEARN MORE AT: Peptan Marine Collagen & How it Works
1. Skin of colour has less ceramides than Caucasian skin, leading to dry skin. This is why hyaluronic acid has been added to this product and only marine collagen used, as it increases the amount of water binding glycosaminoglycans, leading to improved skin hydration.
2. When people of colour live in a colder environments, they are more likely to suffer with low vitamin D and may benefit from consuming this daily to improve mood and joints.
3. Hyperpigmentation is one of our greatest skincare issues and copper has been added to the formulation for this purpose. It is a great vitamin to even skin tone and improve hair pigment.
4. As skin of colour can react to ascorbic acid on the skin during the day, oral anti oxidants e.g. vitamin C is an effective way to mop up damaging free radicals without irritating the skin.
For men & women, all skin types (dry/oily/sensitive) & persons 21 years and over (when collagen starts to decrease).
If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have a serious medical condition or are under medical supervision, please consult with your doctor before taking this product.

1. Can you take Collagen Boost if pregnant or have other medical conditions?
If you are pregnant or have a serious medical condition, please consult with your doctor before taking this product.
PREGNANCY: It is considered safe. The product does not contain shellfish and has added folic acid.
DIABETICS: The product has no added sugar, carbohydrates, fats or cholesterol.
OTHER CONDITIONS: The product has no impact on hormone levels.
2. What is the difference between topical application and oral consumption of collagen?
Orally consumed collagen improves collagen uptake in the dermis. Collagen topically applied doesn’t penetrate the epidermis as the molecule is too large. It just acts as a moisturiser in this setting.
3a. Can I take other multi-vitamins & protein supplements?
Yes you can still take your normal vitamin and/or protein supplements with this product, unless you have been advised not to overconsume certain vitamins due to underlying health conditions (very rare).
3b. Can I take this product AM or PM?
Yes it can be consumed any time; the Peach flavour contains caffeine so you may not want this too late in the day.
4a. What does this drink taste like?
It primarily tastes of watermelon/coconut water (sweeter option) or peach/pineapple water (lightly caffeinated option).
It does not taste of fish at all, unlike some other marine collagen products on the market.
4b. How much caffeine is in the Peach flavour?
50mg caffeine per serving; equivalent to approx. a full cup of
tea or a half cup of coffee. There is no caffeine in the Watermelon & Coconut flavour.
5. Can you consume Vitamins on an empty stomach?
With Collagen Boost, you are consuming the vitamins with a significant amount of water and protein, so yes you can consume it on an empty stomach.
However, if you have any stomach issues or prefer to take with food, please do.
6a. How long will it take to see results?
Results will vary by person. They may start to be seen from 2 weeks onwards, or 1-3 months on average.
6b. Do you stop taking collagen after 3 months and what happens to the benefits?
The product is meant to be taken indefinitely (give or take periodic breaks), so there may be some reversal in benefits if stopped completely.
The 3 month program is intended to be the minimum initial duration to allow for benefits to be seen.
7. Is this product Halal?
Yes the product is halal as the collagen is derived from fish only and has no other animal products inside.
8. Is this product Keto-friendly / Fasting-friendly?
This product will not kick you out of ketosis as there is only 1.6g of total carbohydrates per serving, however it will break a fast (due to the 34 calories).
9. Is this product tested for heavy metals?
Yes the product is tested that heavy metal concentrations are below acceptable regulatory thresholds (lead, arsenic, cadmium, mercury).
10. Where is the fish sourced from & which fish?
MADE FROM: the skin of wild caught Cod, Haddock and Catfish.
SOURCED FROM: UK, Iceland, Denmark, Norway, Belgium, France, Germany, Poland, USA, Canada, China, Vietnam.
- Compliant with the strictest FDA & EU food regulations.
- Fully traceable.
- Non-GMO (produced without genetic engineering).
- 100% pure collagen peptides of marine origin.
- 100% free of antibiotics, hormones and preservatives.
11. Can you make a vegan version?
The collagen which is proven to be effective in human skin only grows in animal skin, of which fish collagen is the most effective. Therefore, we do not plan to develop a vegan collagen product.
