Frequently Asked Questions
What is collagen?
A natural and essential protein found in our bodies, containing a high amino acid profile, responsible for helping us feel and look young. Collagen provides the structure of our entire body including skin, hair, nails, joints, bones, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments, organs and muscles. This protein begins to decline in our mid 20’s which is when we begin to notice dehydrated skin, fine lines and wrinkles, cellulite, weaker hair and nails and joint pain.
Which type of collagen is Chronic Youth?
The different types of collagen consist of types 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 which target specific areas and are all found throughout the body. Our collagen is marine collagen which is made up of Type 1 collagen and is the most abundant and common type of collagen found in the human body.
Type 1 collagen makes up about 90% of the collagen in your body and is found in our skin, hair, nails, organs, brain, eyes, connective tissues, joints, bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, gut and more. Marine collagen has a superior bioavailability and is the most effective in increasing overall body collagen compared to other collagen types due to its similarity to human collagen.
Is it clinically proven?
Yes! It is backed by several studies showing proven anti-aging benefits in skin, hair, nails, joints and overall health within a time frame of just four, eight and twelve weeks. Benefits are noticeable within 2-4 weeks and become more improved in the following weeks. There is a ton of research that has been done on our marine collagen for its safety and efficacy. You can find our studies that have been reported by participants on the studies page.
Why is your collagen more effective than other collagen sources?
Not all collagen is created equal. Marine collagen peptides sourced from fish is superior to other types of collagen sources because it is 1.5 times more easily and efficiently absorbed by the body due to its smaller peptide structure and low molecular weight.
Our collagen goes through a process called hydrolysis where it is broken down by water into smaller peptides for a higher absorption rate. It is also made up of Type 1 collagen which is the most similar and most abundant type of collagen that is found in the human body.
Other types of collagen sources such as bovine, chicken and porcine, take a longer amount of time to notice any benefits and you will need to consume more of it. For example, you would have to consume 20 grams of bovine collagen everyday to see the same effects as you would with only 10 grams of marine collagen. This makes our collagen the most effective and bioavailable compared to other collagen sources.
Tell us more about its amino acid profile.
Our marine collagen contains 18 out of the 20 amino acids which are responsible for keeping our skin, hair and whole body health maintained and as healthy as possible. What makes our collagen unique and the most effective is that not only does it contain 18 amino acids but includes more than 16% of essential amino acids and has a predominance of more than 50% of Hydroxyproline, Glycine and Proline.
Not many sources of protein can provide this high ratio. Essential amino acids cannot be made by your body and must be obtained through a proper diet or collagen consumption. These amino acids are key for maintaining and enhancing your health inside and out.
When will I begin to see the benefits?
You will feel the benefits first before you see them. You will feel better within just a few days and then you will begin to see the results within two to four weeks. Keep in mind, consistency is key. The more consistent you are with consuming on a daily basis, the better and faster you will see the benefits.
Our mixes are intended to give you results within the first month but clinical studies also show more improved results leading into the second and third months. Skin and health improvements become better and better each month with continued use.
Where is the collagen sourced?
Our hydrolyzed marine collagen comes from sustainably sourced non-gmo fresh water fish skin and scales from France. We use safe, sustainable and eco-friendly farming methods. It is then validated through a strict and safe process of sterilization and pasteurization, filtration, ultrafiltration and demineralization. It is free of mercury, toxins, sulfites or any other harmful substances. It is not irradiated and tested to be less than 0.1ppm. It fully conforms to food and pharmeceutical regulations and is made in an FDA, GMP and Kosher certified facility.
Is your collagen traceable?
Yes! Our collagen can be traced back to when it was its original form as fish.
Is your collagen sustainable?
Yes! The sourcing of our collagen is not harming the environment and we use parts of the fish (skin and scales) that would have been discarded otherwise during the fillet process.
Where are each of the ingredients sourced from?
Our ingredients are individually sourced from France, Japan, Brazil and USA. We carefully sourced each of our ingredients that meet high standards and are clean, pure, natural, traceable and effective. We partner with only certified suppliers and manufacturers.
It is a gel-like substance that is naturally found in the body with the largest amounts of it found in the skin, joints, connective tissues and eyes. It serves as a lubricant, holding in moisture, for better and more flexible joint movement as well hydrated and dewy skin. We naturally produce hyaluronic acid but the levels of it decline as we get older which is when we notice dry skin and aching joints.
Our hyaluronic acid is clinically proven to increase skin hydration and promote bone and joint health. It is made by natural fermentation and is all natural, organic, vegan, non-GMO, gluten free, allergen free, preservative free and free of any harsh chemicals or heavy metals.
It is Kosher and Halal certified, GRAS certified and made in a cGMP and FDA certified facility.What makes your probiotics different?
Our patented probiotics are clinically proven and well researched, backed by over 25 published clinical studies with proven benefits to improve digestion, immune health and protein utilization. Our probiotics, Bacillus Coagulans, survive 10x more effectively than yogurt cultures and found in more than 1,000 food, beverage and health products around the world.
Our probiotics are highly stable because they are dormant in a spore form surrounded by a protective barrier which allows survival for any type of condition such as the manufacturing process, high, low, freezing and boiling temperatures, pH levels, etc. so no need for refrigeration. Once conditions are just right, inside the gut, they are no longer in their spore form and become active.
Natural, organic, vegan, gluten free, allergen free, Non-GMO project verified, Kosher and Halal certified. It is FDA and GRAS certified.
Is 1 billion probiotics enough for its benefits?
There has been a great amount of research done on our GRAS certified probiotic strain with studies showing to have digestive health, immune health and protein utilization benefits at just 1 billion CFU's per day, for a stronger and healthier gut.
What are the benefits of matcha and coconut?
They both contain high amounts of antioxidants, amino acids and nutrients which are extremely great for anti-aging purposes and overall healthy well-being.
Our Matcha, known as a powerful green tea, is rich in catechins (EGCG's) which prevents cell damage caused by free radicals. This is a very potent antioxidant providing 5 times as much antioxidants than any other food. It helps boost metabolism, burn fat, reduce inflammation, promote heart health, lower blood sugar levels and maintains healthy cell growth. Matcha also helps to increase your energy, focus and alertness as well as enhancing your mood and improving your memory which is all attributed to its high L-Theanine content.
Our Coconut is rich in cytokinins, plant hormones, which is a well-known anti-aging agent. It contains great amounts of vitamin C, B vitamins, magnesium, and potassium and plays a key role in maintaining muscle and nerve function. It also contains naturally occurring enzymes which are responsible for synthesizing nutrients and helps improve the digestive system, immunity, metabolism and heart health. It contains anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties that help strengthen the immune system. It maintains a healthy pH balance within the body and is also a great source for hydration due to its natural electrolytes.
Is there any sugar or added sugars in each mix?
There is zero sugar in our organic matcha mix and there is only one gram of sugar in our organic coconut mix which comes from the natural sugar that is found in coconut water. There are no added sugars, sweeteners, preservatives or any other additives in our coconut or matcha mixes.
Can I take more than one stick pack per day?
The suggested intake of collagen protein is 10g-20g per day so it is safe to take up to two stick pack servings per day but it is always best to advise with a healthcare professional.
