as we age our body isn't able to produce enough collagen naturally, meaning supplements play an important role in reducing the signs of aging. although several foods contain collagen, they are not absorbed into the body as well as hydrolised collagen.
milla collagen is hydrolised which means it's already broken down to make it easy for the body to absorb and digest.
we only use sustainably sourced marine collagen in our products. from fish scales, a by-product of the fishing industry in france. our marine collagen has been hydrolysed for easy absorption and is gluten and dairy free.
there are alot of mixed messages about how much collagen to have per day. studies have prooved that 2.5g per day is enough to see improvements. at milla we reccomend 5g per day for results you'll see and love, but if you want to get there quicker increase this to 10g.
we suggest on our functional range and inner health ranges only having two serves per day max, due to the highly effective functional ingredients we add.
you can mix and match milla products, with no problems caused by having different products each day. all of our ingredients with exact amounts are listed on the product pages.
if you are unsure about anything drop us an email (hello@millacollagen) or speak with your nutritionist or gp.
no! our nude marine collagen is highly purified and hydolysed, meaning it's fine and without taste or smell. if you are sensitive to the taste of fish products we do have a range of products to help you enjoy all the benefits from collagen.
no, none of our products are vegan, as they all contain marine collagen. collagen is found in the skin of animals, thus making vegan collagen powders exceptionally rare.
yes. milla collagen is a great source of amino acids and protein. It is also very easily absorbed, even in those with challenged digestive systems. combined with its utility in improving and maintaining health in a number of areas, this makes regular collagen supplementation a great source for additional amino acids and protein during breastfeeding.
while collagen is regarded as safe for general use, we know that pregnancy is an important moment for all. being a marine collagen (sourced from fish scales) some will choose to wait till after pregnancy before using. we'd suggest if you werent sure, to have a chat with your midwife or healthcare professional.
