Focusing on your body

Being the person you are, you may care more about what you eat and what it contains than you did in the past. The amount of ingredients and additives in food and care products makes us more skeptical when we choose a new product to take home with us.

In the news, magazines and posts on social media, we hear about findings of harmful substances, like heavy metals and PFAS. You probably also gave these two substances a thought when you bought a collagen product.

Third Party Tests

When choosing a collagen product from Vild Nord, can you be sure the product is Free of PFAS. We are subject to European food legislation and thus also the limit values ​​for the heavy metals cadmium, mercury and lead in fish products and thus collagen.
The collagen is analyzed by a third party, so we are absolutely sure that the product we use does not exceed the limit values.

Clean collagen

You certainly want to know what the food you eat actually contains. That is why the list of ingredients is found on all foods, but sometimes the list is so long that you are left with more questions after reading the list than when you started. This is not, and should not be the case with our products.

Know what you get, with Vild Nord Collagen

When considering a collagen product, there are several things you can look for. Here are five important factors:

  • Source and type of collagen
    There are different types of collagen, such as collagen from fish, cattle or pork. It is important to know what type of collagen is used in the product.

  • Collagen concentration
    Investigate the collagen concentration of the product. 

  • Quality and purity
    Choose a collagen product that is of high quality and undergoes strict control to ensure that it is free of contaminants or impurities (eg heavy metals and PFAS).

  • Added ingredients and formula
    Check the product's label and ingredient list of added ingredients. Some collagen products may contain additional nutrients or excipients that can support the effect of collagen or provide extra benefits. Be aware of whether sugar, artificial colures or fillers have been added. You may want to avoid these.

  • Reviews and reputation
    Read reviews and investigate the reputation, e.g. in the form of awards, for the collagen product you are considering buying.

By taking all this into consideration, you can make an educated decision when choosing a collagen product that best suits your needs.

Cod - A source of collagen

Our marine collagen is derived from wild-caught North Atlantic cod. We use the fish skin as the source of the collagen, by upcycling a residual product that is typically used for fish feed, to a high quality inner beauty collagen for humans.
To upcycle means that we recycle waste products to avoid having to use new resources. We use as much as possible of the residual products we have available, so waste gets a new life in its best format.
By processing the fish skin, we can extract collagen and use it in all our collagen products.
