Jellyfish collagen may be nature’s perfect source for the amino acids and macroelements needed for mental sharpness and a keen memory. KollaJell is a patented functional ingredient that preserves these brain-enriching nutrients in hydrolyzed collagen types I, II and V peptides. KollaJell modulates the gut-microbiome-immune-brain axis to support brain health and cognitive function, gut and immune health, and healthy skin.
The benefits of collagen for joints, skin and beauty are well known. KollaJell jellyfish collagen is unlike any other and the only collagen that contains:
All 20 essential and nonessential amino acids, including the building blocks for neurotransmitters that enable thinking, learning and memory. It is especially rich in three amino acids (glutamate, glycine and tryptophan) that control homeostasis of the gut-microbiome-immune-brain axis. 1
These amino acids are also responsible for serotonin production, induction of immune response, improvement in gut barrier function, enteric nervous system function, and central nervous system communication. 2
More than a dozen vital macronutrients and neuroprotective antioxidants needed to replenish the brain and prevent damage to neurons. These include sodium, potassium, phosphorus, chloride, copper, calcium, magnesium, manganese, sulfur, silicon, iron and zinc.
Calcuim-binding proteins that help maintain calcium balance in the brain and protect neurons. Aging bodies produce fewer calcium-binding proteins which are an important defense against excessive intracellular calcium levels that can damage neurons. 3
This unique combination of ingredients is believed to work through multiple and complementary mechanisms, including modulation of the gut-microbiome-immune-brain axis, to support healthy brains and sharpen cognitive performance. KollaJell is believed to work like a prebiotic to modulate the gut microbiota and the enteric nervous system.
KollaJell helps healthy skin resist aging. Its collagen types I and V play critical roles throughout the body, especially in skin where repair from sun damage and other environmental factors is constant. Type I collagen represents 90% of the collagen in the skin where it preserves skin firmness and elasticity. Type V is a collagen fibril found in the dermal and epidermal layers where it helps facilitate strong skin.
Jellyfish collagen holds approximately 200% more water than traditional collagens sourced from fish, bovine, chicken sternum or eggshell membrane, enabling it to retain greater amounts of skin-replenishing proteins and macronutrients during hydrolyzation.
The unique characteristics of jellyfish collagen make KollaJell ideal for cosmetic and other nutri-beauty applications.
KollaJell’s type II collagen is a major component of cartilage that cushions joints and the vitreous body, the clear gel that fills the space between the lens and the retina of the eyeball. The primary purpose of the vitreous is to keep the center of the eye clear so that light can get to the retina and vision can begin.
KollaJell is sourced from wild caught, edible cannonball jellyfish (Stomolophus meleagris) and river jellyfish (Acromitus Hardenbergi). Manufactured in the U.S.A. and China under good manufacturing practices.
The human brain has ~100 billion neurons that communicate to each other via neurotransmitters made from amino acids. Neurotransmitters make thinking, learning and memory possible.
Mild cognitive impairment characterized by problems with memory, language, thinking or judgment may begin early and continue throughout life. A study in Neurobiology Aging found that:

The potential of Jellyfish collagen to support cognitive function and healthy aging is enormous. Unlike other collagens, jellyfish collagen contains a unique blend of collagen types, essential amino acids and other macroelements that modulate the gut-microbiome-immune-brain axis.
