I have known since primary school that Cape Town, where I attended primary school, was established so that the sailors could get fresh food because they had no access to Vitamin C at sea and hence got scurvy.
We have been selling collagen since July of last year but I did not remember my history lessons. The sailors had no shortage of collagen but it could not be absorbed because they had no Vitamin C.
Fortunately the science and history have been pointed out to me and so now we add Vitamin C to the collagen.
You can read here about how Vitamin C enables collagen absorption.
We have lots of questions about the collagen. Where does it come from? The chemical analysis etc. That information is here.
