Why CORREXIKO? Not all collagen is created equal
What is the difference between collagen powder and liquid collagen?
Liquid collagen is simply, collagen powder dissolved in water. The real difference is in liquid collagen the added water, sugar, sweeteners, flavouring, preservatives, additives, and extra costs.
Why is the taste of Liquid collagen difficult to manage?
10g Collagen powder is mixed with 250 to 400ml of fluid. However, in liquid form 8-10g is in 15ml of fluid, so the concentration is very high and therefore the taste is very strong. To disguise this taste, large amounts sweeteners and sugars are added, and as it’s dissolved in fluid to slow the product expiring, many preservatives need to be added. This whole combination results in a very challenging flavour.
What is the collagen Source?
Some very important things to note, not all collagen powders are created equal, make sure the source of the collagen you take is from wild-caught fish skin, naturally rich in collagen the not scales, bones and bladder from farmed fish.
Is there a difference in the collagen peptide?
Hydrolysis is the process of breaking down collagen (which is a big, tough nutrient) into smaller collagen peptides. With single hydrolysis the collagen peptide is larger and less effective. For maximum results, collagen should be double hydrolysed to create smaller collagen peptides, which are more absorbable and faster acting.
The 3 month cost, why is it important?
For visible and established results, a minimum 3-month course of collagen is needed. The collagen product you take needs to be affordable to ensure that the course can be maintained. A 3-month cost should be calculated for any collagen product you take.
Ease of use?
CORREXIKO powders can be added easily to your everyday routine, fuss-free - mix into your lemon water, sprinkle onto cereal and yoghurt or make into smoothies, add it to your coffee or tea - pop in a travel flask for collagen on the go.
