Don’t just build collagen, build healthy collagen with Marine Collagen + Co-Factors. With the synergy of collagen peptides, silicon, and wholefood vitamin C it helps protect against age-related decline by promoting production of healthy collagen. This powerful trio helps to rejuvenate skin and provides a significant boost to hair and nail health. Most collagen peptides are derived from cow hides however, we source ours from sustainably caught wild fish. This is the more environmentally friendly choice.
New research has shown that collagen peptides can stimulate cells to increase collagen production. Topical applications of collagen would appear to be a logical approach, however, the barrier properties of the skin’s outer layer, the epidermis, prevents collagen peptides from reaching the dermal layer, the site of the collagen matrix.
That’s why Bend pioneered heal from the inside out. When consumed orally, collagen peptides are absorbed into the bloodstream and reach the dermis where they stimulate the production of collagen as well as hyaluronic acid, another important component of the skin’s collagen matrix.
Vitamin C and the mineral Silicon are essential co-factors in a process called collagen crosslinking. This process improves collagen strength, function, and makes it more resistant to damage. Additionally, Vitamin C is an important skin antioxidant and Silicon maintains the health of skin, hair and nails.

I really enjoy both products. They are easy to take and the collagen powder has a nice flavor which makes it easy to mix with my shakes. Not only did I see the results, but people started commenting on my skin and hair.*Adam, 28
