MIRACLE GREENS MARINE COLLAGEN POWDER REVIEW


The Happy Sage purchased this product.


A review of Miracle Greens marine collagen powder and how it compares to Bare Biology Skinful collagen and Correxiko Marine Collagen






If you've read my post on What Collagen is Good For, then you will know what a fan I am of this amazing nutrient. You don't really need to supplement with this until your late twenties as you should be making all you need, but production of collagen starts to taper off slightly about this age and drops every year, until by the time we are in our fifties we can have lost over a third of it.


With collagen being our most abundant bodily protein, a lack of it can have an effect on our skin, bones, muscles and tendons. Loss of elasticity, sagging and wrinkles in the skin, general wear and tear, stiffness and loss of flexibility in the joints are just some of the issues that decreasing collagen can cause.


I've been taking a collagen supplement for a few years now and have really noticed the difference. My skin is definitely better, my hair and nails grow so fast I can barely keep up with them (read my post on How to Make Nails Grow Faster for all my tips and hints for quick nail growth that really work). Collagen definitely helps with all these things and I take my dose in the form of a morning collagen coffee.







Collagen Coffee Recipe


My current collagen coffee recipe is:


  • a large cafetiere coffee

  • 2 tablespoons of collagen powder

  • half a tablespoon of paleo gelatine

  • 1 tablespoon of organic grass fed butter

  • 1 tablespoon of MCT oil. *

* MCT oil can act as a laxative in some people, so if you are new to using MCT oil, start off with a teaspoon in your coffee for a week and build up carefully to a tablespoon measure. John Lewis do a great set of professional nesting stainless steel measuring spoons for £12.


I just blend all this together and drink it. It works best when mixed with a blender (although be careful as some plastic blenders are not designed for hot liquid and will crack or break). A very easy way to blend your collagen coffees quickly and cheaply is by putting all the ingredients into a large jug and blending them with a hand held mini mixer. The Zulay Original hand held milk frother (battery operated) is pretty good as long as you hold it at the appropriate angle as specified in the inuctions. You won't get quite as much froth on your coffee as with a blender but it's what I use every day and it's a lot quicker to clean! You'll find the addition of the gelatine helps keep a frothy top on your coffee once it has been poured.


Zulay Original hand held milk frother is available from Amazon for £12.99.


I should say that a collagen coffee is what I have for breakfast most days, very satisfying and I don't normally eat until lunchtime.


There are quite a few different types of collagen (and you can see them all and what they are good for in my post What Collagen is Good For). The best collagen for skin, hair and nails is marine collagen (Types 1 and 3) and it also needs to be hydrolysed for better absorption. You also need to make sure that it does not come from farmed fish which will be loaded with hormones and antibiotics.


Best Marine Collagen Powders


I have tried many different hydrolysed marine collagen powders and here are a few that I have tried and can recommend:





Miracle Greens Marine Collagen Powder Review


I have used a few tubs of Miracle Greens wild caught marine collagen powder now. This product ticks all my boxes in that it is a type 1 and 3 collagen (good for the hair, skin and nails), it is hydrolysed (for better absorption) and the collagen is made from the skins of wild caught cod from the North Sea. The product is packaged and quality tested in the UK and they guarantee no skin or scales from farm raised fish, therefore the product is free of hormones and antibiotics.


It is a fine white powder and I use two tablespoons at a time. It mixes in without any problems and there is never any lumps or clumping. It smells of absolutely nothing and has no specific taste (ie there is no 'fishy' smell or after taste) so you could quite happily add it to yoghurt, smoothies or soups too.


I'm really like this collagen powder. It's a high quality product and after a few tubs I can't tell any difference from the Correxiko or the Skinful, apart from the price that is. The good thing is that, at the tim of writing, Miracle Greens Wild Caught Marine Collagen Powder is £24.99 for a 400g tub so is a much better value for money than Bare Biology's Skinful or Corrixiko.


When a product is cheaper there is usually some giveaway on where they are saving money, but to be honest I can't see it here. For value for money Miracle Greens wild caught Marine Collagen Powder wins hands down on quality, price and effectiveness.


Miracle Greens Collagen Powder - highly rated by The Happy Sage and available on Amazon for £24.99 for 400g tub.
