Everyone is obsessed with collagen right now! During my segment in The Morning Show on March 14 at 9:20, I explain what collagen is, explain the health benefits of collagen, and show you how to easily incorporate DeepMarine collagen into your morning.
What is c
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. About 3kgs of our body weight is collagen! It’s a molecule that provides strength and structure to tissues and bones. When we have lots of collagen our skin is strong, youthful and resilient, joints, ligaments and tendons are strong and solid and bones have excellent density and flexibility. As we age and collagen declines, we also see a decline in the durability of joints and connective tissues, skin starts to look wrinkly, and we lose bone density.
Health benefits of DeepMarine Collagen
Marine collagen is more absorbable than bovine collagen. DeepMarine collagen is a completely Canadian made product with no imported ingredients. It is sustainably made here in Canada from wild caught fish.
Supplementing with high-quality marine collagen helps:
- Reduce joint pain for those with arthritis and connective tissue deterioration
- Reduce inflammation in the body. It can improve gut health, reduce joint swelling, and help with skin inflammation problems like eczema
- Improves skin health by diminishing wrinkles
Everyone is obsessed with collagen and you can be too!
Adding a scoop of collagen to coffee is a great way to add anti-inflammatory properties to your favourite morning drink. It dissolves really easily, but you can use a frother to make sure it is fully mixed. You can also sprinkle it over cereal before adding milk. I also love to add it to smoothies like my Chocolate Monkey Power Smoothie.

- 1 Tbsp chia seeds

- 2 Tbsp raw cacao powder
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Place all of the power smoothie ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
