Consuming marine collagen peptides brings about a slew of benefits:
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Healthy nail growth
  • Builds bone strength
  • Improves wound healing and reduces scars
  • Reduces inflammation and helps with joint pain
  • Superior protein source for weight management
  • Promotes better sleep

For a full comprehensive list of benefits, read our blog post!
Across multiple studies that examine marine collagen peptide and its visible effects, it takes about 4-6 weeks of consistent consumption to see its benefits.
Marine collagen peptides are the best for skin. This is because of its extremely low molecular weight, which makes it much easier for your body to absorb.

KORYA Marine Collagen Peptide has a molecular weight of under 2000. A lower molecular weight enables a higher absorption rate, which makes it more fast-acting in replenishing and restoring collagen found in your skin, joint tendons and cartilage.


Collagen is a protein — the most plentiful protein in your body.

It’s in your muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, organs, blood vessels, skin, intestinal lining and other connective tissues.

Collagen production starts to slow at around 25 years of age. Collagen decreases as you get older, contributing to:
  • Fine lines, wrinkles and drier skin
  • Stiffer, less flexible tendons and ligaments
  • Shrinking, weakening muscles
  • Joint pain or osteoarthritis due to worn cartilage
  • Gastrointestinal problems due to thinning of the lining in your digestive tract

Consuming KORYA Collagen Peptide allows your body to slow down the development of these effects by keeping you rate of collagen production constant.
KORYA Marine Collagen Peptide is obtained from the skin and scales of fresh fish. It begins with a natural process of extracting gelatin from the raw material, which contains native collagen.

This is followed by a specific enzymatic hydrolysis process to convert the gelatin into – highly bioavailable and bioactive – collagen peptides.

KORYA Collagen Peptide has been reduced to molecular weights of less than 2000 - the typical molecular weights of other brand collagen tends to be higher than that, making their collagen not as absorbable and fast acting as ours.

KOYRA Collagen Peptide then goes through a patented activated carbon and advanced filtering step, which removes almost all natural odors from collagen peptides.

The final step in our collagen peptide production journey is the sterilization and packaging for shipping straight to our customers!

KORYA only uses marine collagen, which is a prime source of type 1 collagen - the most plentiful collagen in our bodies.

It’s a key building block for maintaining the elasticity, firmness and radiance of our skin.

It's also the substance that reinforces all of the tendons in our joints.

This makes it a vital component of any diet, beauty or wellness routine — especially if you’re staying active as you age.
Once ingested, marine collagen peptides are absorbed and distributed into the bloodstream, via the blood vessels, to a deeper layer of skin called the dermis.

When you ingest hydrolysed collagen peptides, you are increasing the pool of specific amino acids that are needed by cells in the body that produce collagen. You can read more about how our body processes collagen in our upcoming blog post!
Marine collagen is made from hydrolysed fish skin and bones, while bovine collagen is made from the connective tissue, bones, cartilage, and hides of cows.

You can read more about the difference between marine and bovine collagen in our upcoming blog post!

Consumption & diet

Due to its neutral taste and odour, KORYA Collagen Peptide can be consumed in various ways.

The simplest option is to stir your recommended dosage into any cold or hot beverage.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to wellness. To give you a clear benchmark of your collagen needs, we recommend basing supplementation on your age.

Loading dose/Initial dose

Mix twice the maintenance dose of powder with 200ml of water, fruit juice or any cold or hot beverage once a day for the first month. Consume on an empty stomach.

Maintenance dose

Age Dosage
25-35 One teaspoonful (5-7.5g)/day
35-55 One tablespoonful (10-13g)/day
≥55 One to two tablespoonfuls (10-22g)/day

We recommend an initial loading dose to boost the level of collagen in order to reach the level of target concentration rapidly. This way, you'll see the effects and benefits earlier.
We don’t recommend consuming more than what is suited for your age as you should only supplement the collagen that your body is unable to produce any longer due to age.
You can and should consume collagen peptide daily if you want to achieve benefits like reducing joint pain, speeding up injury and inflammation healing, or hydrating your skin.

However, there is no need to take it in the morning for optimum efficacy. You can enjoy it on an empty stomach whenever it suits you.
Supplementing your body with pure marine collagen peptides is not a temporary fix, it’s a lifelong dedication to better health from the inside out.

Once you stop taking KORYA Collagen Peptide consistently, the body’s collagen production will slowly revert back to where you were before you started, which will naturally decrease with age.
Absolutely! Collagen isn't just for women — it is a gender-neutral product!

In addition to boosting skin and hair benefits, collagen can help with athletic performance by building muscles and bones while thickening beard growth.
Yes, you can! It’s completely safe to mix our collagen peptides with protein powder products (e.g. whey, pea).
There are 36 calories per 10g serving of KORYA Collagen Peptide.
Yes, KORYA Collagen Peptide is gluten-free.
Yes. We have obtained both halal and kosher certifications. KORYA Marine Collagen Peptide is made in facilities inspected by the U.S. FDA in accordance with 21CFR/110 granted by the EDQM(European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines).
As there is no direct source of consumable collagen for vegans, KORYA Collagen Peptide is an inherently animal product.

Health and safety

If you have a seafood or shellfish allergy, you should avoid our collagen peptide.
If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have any underlying medical condition, or are on medication, please consult your doctor before consuming KORYA Collagen Peptide.
No and no! We never test on our products on animals and we pride ourselves on only bringing you a product that’s pure and unadulterated.
Yes. KORYA Marine Collagen Peptide is made in facilities inspected by the U.S. FDA in accordance with 21CFR/110 granted by the EDQM(European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines).
Yes, in fact, supplementing with collagen peptides are especially important for diabetics as they lose collagen faster than the average person.

Diabetics lose collagen even faster than non-diabetics as a result of high blood sugar and glycation, in which sugar molecules attach to collagen throughout the body and inhibit its functions.
