MSC certified marine collagen

Why choose an MSC certified Marine Collagen?


The collagen found within our bodies is essential for the maintenance of elasticity, flexibility and strength of skin, tendons, and ligaments. It also is beneficial for the cornea, cartilage, bones, blood vessels and gut. As we age degenerative factors influence the amount of collagen we store within our bodies, with many people looking towards the inclusion of collagen supplements within their daily health routine to support collagen synthesis and contribute to the maintenance of collagen within their skin, connective tissues, joints, and bones.


Fish-derived collagen peptides are receiving increasing attention due to their favourable characteristics of low odour and taste profiles as well as consumer preferences for alternatives to bovine sourced collagen. There are many fish collagens emerging in the market, but not all are sourced in a sustainable and environmentally conscious manner. Overfishing is an ever-present threat to the health of our oceans and exacerbates the impact of climate change by the negative alteration of marine ecosystems. Farmed freshwater or marine fish are confined and intensively farmed, often requiring antibiotics for maintaining fish health and contribute to river waterway and ocean pollution.


Nutraviva Marine Collagen is a Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified marine collagen powder. This certification means that the North Atlantic Cod that is used for processing our Marine Collagen is wild caught and that sustainable fishery practices are applied. This includes ensuring that destructive fishing practices are not used, operators can only use approved gear types, target particular monitored fish stocks only, bycatch is minimised, and that marine biodiversity is maintained. This certification provides consumers with the assurance that their chosen product is sustainably sourced, and that fish stock security and ocean health is not negatively impacted.
