WE'RE GLAD YOU ASKED.
Collagen is on everyone's lips, and we are glad that you share our interest in nature's pure, beauty promoting ingredients. We answer some of the most common questions below, and you are also welcome to call or write to us if you want to go even more in depth with our marine collagen from the icy and crystal clear water of the North Atlantic.
Why should I choose your collagen?
Our collagen is hydrolyzed marine collagen extracted from the skin from wild cod cod from sustainable fishing. In addition to our pure collagen powder COLLAGEN CLEAN PROTEIN we have developed a number of different collagen mixtures with eg. Wildly picked Nordic berries, sustainably harvested seaweed and organic Danish kale, which contribute lots of natural flavors, color and good vitamins. In our exo lab-Series we have added active ingredients as an extra kick to your skin.
The molecular weight of the collagen is crucial to how it is absorbed into the body. When we hydrolyze the collagen, it breaks down into tiny peptides of 3 kda (kilodalton), which is the same as 3000 Dalton. Typically, the molecular weight of collagen powders is between 2.5-6 KDA, depending on which source is involved.
Vild Nord's range consists of 11 different variants. All variants contain marine collagen as a base. We have put together the products so that they support your beauty - whether you want a quick kick to the skin, go up with eating you healthy and beautiful with nature's pure ingredients or want to build a strong body with extra proteins. The shopping filtration tool will safely lead you to your right collagen product.
No. Our collagen contains 100 percent hydrolyzed marine collagen extracted from cod skins - no fish oil.
How should I take my collagen powder?
From 25 years-Age, our natural production of collagen begins to fall. However, all bodies are different and therefore it may be different when we feel the need for a supplement. A varied diet and healthy lifestyle can help maintain a better collagen production, while smoking and excessive sun cultivation help reduce the formation of collagen.
We recommend 5-10 g marine collagen daily as needed. If you are only interested in covering your collagen needs we always recommend COLLAGEN CLEAN PROTEIN, which is our pure variant. However, collagen can do something in composition with other active ingredients that you can enjoy. Eg. Vitamin C from berries that contribute to the body's own production of collagen; Wildly harvest seaweed, which with its high content of iodine also supports normal skin, and zinc that contributes to normal skin, hair and nails.
The collagen mixtures each consist of a number of ingredients that are carefully matched with each other, so that the individual product has the intended effect, consistency and portion size. Therefore, the content of collagen is also not 100 percent similar. In our exo-Variants are the content of collagen e.g. Lower than 5 g, but in synergy with the other active ingredients, you get the intended effect, which thus does not depend solely on the collagen.
No, it doesn't matter. Collagen is easy to get into your daily routines because you can take it exactly when it suits you.
Yes, you can advantageously alternate between the variants, both over time, but also on the individual day - e.g. use CARE in the morning in a glass of water and COLLAGEN BEAUTY REMEDY In a healthy afternoon snack. That way you get both your daily collagen, a contribution to a varied diet and a good supplement of several vitamins and minerals. Just stick to one measuring spoon of each of your two selected products daily.
There is a custom measuring spoon with each product. The serving size depends on the product variant, both because recommended dosage varies and because the density of the powder varies. Eg. holds the spoon in COLLAGEN GOLD 5 g while the measuring spoon in COLLAGEN BEAUTY REMEDY Holds 7 g - this mixture also contains dried seaweed and berry powder from four different berries.
Our COLLAGEN CLEAN PROTEIN is heat resistant and can therefore be mixed in everything from coffee to porridge. The other products contain vitamin C, which loses part of its effect on heating. Collagen powder dissolves when it comes into contact with moisture or at temperatures above 25 degrees. Therefore we recommend that you store your Vild Nord-Product dry, in a dense container away from direct sunlight and at a maximum of 25 degrees.
Is there anything special I need to be aware of?
Easily, there are no problems in consuming collagen as pregnant or breastfeeding. However, always be aware of your daily intake of iodine (found in our Gold-Series with seaweed) as well as vitamin A (found in exo-The series GLOW-Variant). 1 measuring spoon of gold-The products correspond to 50 percent of recommended daily dose of iodine (%RI), while 1 measuring spoon GLOW gives you 75 percent of recommended daily dose of vitamin A (%RI). We generally recommend that you contact your own doctor if you have special allergens or are in doubt.
Since collagen is a protein in itself, there are no problems associated with consuming larger quantities. However, since in our collagen mixtures we add other functional ingredients, vitamins and minerals, you should always follow the recommendations of the individual product.
On Vild Nord's products it says that it can contain traces of seafood. It is aimed at people with allergies. The traces of seafood can occur from the machines that hydrolyze our collagen. The machines are washed and cleaned after production of the different products, but it cannot be ruled out that there are still small traces. Therefore, it is a factor to be aware of if you have severe allergy. If you are still in doubt, you can always contact your own doctor and hear more.
In Denmark we have limit values for the content of three heavy metals in fish products. The limit values relate to cadmium, mercury and lead. If a product keeps within the limit values, the content of heavy metals does not pose a safety risk.
We have chosen cod as a source of our product, as it is not a larger predatory fish, which typically accumulates heavy metals. All the collagen is analyzed via third parties, so we always have a guarantee that the product does not exceed the limit values.

When the item is at Vild Nord's warehouse, we are required to check in relation to storage, cleaning, temperature, packing and handling.
