My husband tore a ligament. The course of Collmar marine collagen helped speed up the healing. I drank it with him while pregnant. My baby was born healthy, and I have no stretch marks. In my opinion, Collmar is a great product and worth the money. And yes, better than bovine collagen, which I cannot drink at all. The marine collagen taste was pleasant!
I am nearly through my first can of powder, and I can really tell the difference. I have less pain during a run, and my knees hold up the next day too. There is no fishy taste either.
It’s very sweet, so I take it with loads of water – makes it easier to stay hydrated. Don’t want to be without this now.

All the things you’ve wanted to know about collagen, but didn’t want to ask out loud:
What is collagen?
Collagen is a protein. It is common throughout the body. In fact the most common and important structural protein, especially in cartilage, tendons, ligaments, bones and skin. It is also found in blood vessels, the gut lining and eyes.
Why do I need to supplement collagen?
While your body does produce collagen, after your teenage years, production steadily decreases by about 1% per year. The most obvious visible sign of weakening of structural collagen is the formation of wrinkles in the skin. As skin also steadily thins, and other structures reliant on collagen, like tendons, ligaments and cartilage are also loose some of their integrity.
A good dietary source of collagen, in particular hydrolyzed collagen, has been shown to benefit all these vulnerable parts of your body. In fact clinical studies show that continual ingestion (of hydrolyzed collagen) helps to reduce and prevent joint pain, bone density loss and skin ageing. These results as well as its high level of tolerance and safety make hydrolyzed collagen ingestion attractive for a long-term use in bone and joint degenerative diseases and in fight against skin ageing.
What is hydrolyzed collagen?
Collagen peptides are made through hydrolysis. Hydrolyzed collagen simply means that the protein has been broken down to smaller bits. This process involves severing the bonds of the long collagen molecule to produce shorter and ‘lighter’ collagen peptides. These molecules are also referred to as bio-active. Thanks to their low molecular weight and small size. Bio-active in this context means it is easily absorbed. Since the body does not need to break the protein down to allow it to be usable.
Collagen hydrolysis can be done chemically or through the use of enzymes. Enzymatic hydrolysis is a more reliable process, which yields consistent peptides. Drasanvi Collmar uses only enzymatically hydrolyzed collagen.
Why marine collagen?
- Collmar Hydrolyzed marine collagen has a lower molecular weight than other sources of collagen. This is when less is more: since the ‘lighter’ molecules improve absorption, you can take a smaller dose, and get the most for every rand invested in a premium quality collagen supplement.
- Collmar Hydrolyzed marine collagen is highly sustainable. Since it comes from sustainably farmed fish, it does not come from unsustainable sources like factory farmed chicken or feedlot cattle hides. Our marine collagen also does not deplete fish stocks from over-fished species.
For how long should I take collagen?
Clinical research shows that it is ideal to supplement collagen for at least 3 months to get maximum benefits.
The research (citation) also showed that participants who received the collagen supplement were less and less reliant on other medications (like pain killers) to relieve discomfort.
Remember that as you get older, your body produces less and less collagen on its own. It is recommended to make a good collagen supplement part of your regular supplementation regime. Especially during periods of intense training or recovery from injury.
