We always want to help
We're glad you asked
Collagen is on everyone's lips and we are happy that you share our interest in nature's pure, beauty-enhancing 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 into more depth with us. It is important to us that you know so much about what you consume.
Why should I choose your collage?
WHAT IS MARINT COLLAGEN FROM VILD NORD?
We have created a world of the finest, pure collagen powder extracted from the skin of wild-caught cod that has lived freely in the crystal clear waters of the North Atlantic. Our unique range combines the best raw materials from the Nordic nature with effective vitamins and minerals.
WHICH COLLAGEN PRODUCT SHOULD I CHOOSE?
Vild Nord's range consists of 11 different variants. All variants contain marine collagen as a base. We have put together the products to support your inner and outer beauty. Remember when choosing your collagen product to think about what experience and effect you want.
Ingredients, content and effect can be read on each product that you find in our shop.
HOW MANY KDA IS YOUR COLLAGEN AT?
The collagen's molecular weight is decisive for how it is absorbed into the body. When we hydrolyze the collagen, it breaks down into tiny peptides of 3 kDa (kilodaltons), which is the same as 3000 daltons. Typically, the molecular weight of collagen powders is between 2.5-6 kDa, depending on the type of hydrolysis process it has undergone.
How do I take my collagen powder?
HOW MUCH COLLAGEN SHOULD I CONSUME PER DAY?
We recommend 5-10 g of marine collagen daily as needed. However, collagen can do something in combination with other active ingredients that you can benefit from. Eg. vitamin C from berries, which contributes to the body's own production of collagen; wild-harvested seaweed, which with its high content of iodine also supports normal skin, and zinc, which contributes to normal skin, hair and nails.
The collagen mixtures each consist of a number of carefully coordinated ingredients with each other, so that the individual product has the intended effect, consistency and portion size. Therefore, the content of the collage is also not 100 percent the same. In our EXO variants, the content of collagen is 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.
IS THERE A TIME OF DAY THAT IS BEST TO TAKE 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.
CAN I USE MANY OF YOUR PRODUCTS AT THE SAME TIME?
Yes, you can switch between the variants, both over time, but also on an individual day – e.g. use CARE in the morning in a glass of water and Collagen Beauty Remedy in a healthy afternoon chat. This way you get both your daily collagen, a contribution to a varied diet and a good supplement of more vitamins and minerals. Just stick to one scoop of each of your two selected products daily.
CAN COLLAGEN WITHSTAND HEAT?
Our COLLAGEN CLEAN PROTEIN is heat resistant and can therefore be mixed in anything from coffee to porridge. The other products contain vitamin C, which loses part of its effect when heated. Collagen powder dissolves when in contact with moisture or at temperatures above 25 degrees. Therefore, we recommend that you store your Vild Nord-product dry, in a tight container away from direct sunlight and at maximum 25 degrees.
What should I be aware of?
CAN I TAKE COLLAGE WHILE I'M PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING?
Certainly, there are no problems in consuming collagen as pregnant or breastfeeding. However, always pay attention to your daily intake of iodine (found in our GOLD-series with seaweed) and vitamin A (found in EXO-series GLOW-variant). 1 scoop of GOLD products correspond to 50% of the recommended daily dose of iodine (%RI), while 1 scoop GLOW gives you 75 percent of the recommended daily dose of vitamin A (%RI). We generally recommend that you consult your own doctor if you have special allergens or are in doubt.
Can you take too much collagen?
Since collagen is a protein, there are no problems associated with consuming larger amounts. However, since we add other functional ingredients, vitamins and minerals to our collagen variants, you should always follow the recommendations of the individual product.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN IT SAYS "MAY CONTAIN TRAINS OF CRUSTACEANS AND MOLLUSCS"?
Vild Nord's products say they may contain traces of crustaceans and molluscs. It is aimed at people with allergies. Traces of seafood can come from the premises that produce our collagen. Products containing shellfish are produced in the same premises - and although it is not produced with the same equipment as our collagen, traces cannot be excluded. Therefore, it is a factor to be aware of if you have severe allergies. If you are still in doubt, you can always contact your own doctor for further information.
HOW ABOUT HEAVY METALS?
In Denmark, we have limit values for the content of three heavy metals in fish products. The MRLs concern cadmium, mercury and lead. If a product remains within the limit values, the heavy metal content does not pose a safety risk.
We have chosen cod as the source of our product, as it is not a major predator, in which heavy metals typically accumulate. Alt Vild Nord collagen is analysed through third parties, so we always have a guarantee that the product does not exceed the limit values.
ARE THERE PFAS IN VILD NORD COLLAGEN?
No, it is safe to consume collagen from Vild Nord. Our collagen has been assessed as a low-risk product in terms of PFAS. You can read more about it in our blog post about PFAS here.
