Our ConCordix technology allows for high payloads, particularly oil-soluble nutrients. For example, one ConCordix Smart Chew can hold up to 750mg of marine oil. One can only imagine a sea of possibilities with ConCordix.

Enhanced absorption

Our patented dosage system packages lipid nutrients in billions of microscopic oil droplets that are stabilized in an emulsion. This technology increases lipid nutrient absorption by 44%. Our unique design is specific to ConCordix Smart Chews which allows the option of combining both lipid with water-soluble nutrients in one convenient dose.

Nutrient absorption

Our GI tract has multiple folds that contain pits which hold finger like projections called villi. These pits, folds, and villi increase the gut’s surface and are what allows for optimal nutrient absorption.

Likewise, mother nature strategically packages nutrients in foods to optimize their surface area. For instance, a piece of salmon contains evenly distributed microscopic oil droplets that significantly increases the surface area of the nutrients that are exposed to the gut.

We took a cue from nature and created a patented technology that packages lipid nutrients in microscopic oil droplets that are stabilized in an emulsion. This unique design is specific to our Smart Chews. You won’t find our patented emulsification system in any other delivery system in the market today.

Sugar-free & natural flavors

ConCordix Smart Chews utilize plant-based sweeteners which provide multiple health benefits. Our sugar-free flavor system addresses health concerns such as dental care, weight loss, and diabetes.

Nutrient stability & earth-friendly packaging

Our thoughtful packaging is made from sustainable material which is designed to effectively protect nutrients from oxidation. Cartons that house the aluminum blister packs are made from recycled material. The blister packs individually seal each Smart Chew, protecting each dose from humidity, light, and air oxidation with no exposure to the elements until ready to be consumed. Light-weight and convenient, our packaging is conducive to an active lifestyle.


The human body is made up of collagen in many forms like in the extracellular matrix and connective tissue (1). It’s a protein that holds the body together and makes up about 30-percent of the whole-body content of protein (2). Therefore, it’s no surprise that supplementing with this natural compound can provide increased health benefits.

What is collagen?

Collagen is a major structural component of the body that in the form of collagen peptides can provide a beneficial dietary supplement (3). All collagen contains about 19 different amino acids which include a unique amino acid, hydroxyproline, not found in other proteins (2). There are five major types of collagen, but you’ll find type 1 and type 2 most often in supplements (1). Type 1 helps connect muscle to bone, while type 2 is found in cartilage.
The human body can’t digest collagen in its whole form (2). Therefore, most supplement processing involves hydrolyzing collagen or breaking down its amino acid chains, to make it easier to digest. Typical sources of collagen involve the meat from any animal as well as fish, egg whites, and spirulina.

Is there research on the benefits of collagen?

A 2017 animal study looked at the effect of collagen peptides on the skin health of mice. Study results show that intake of collagen peptides from bovine bone significantly improved skin looseness, repaired collagen fibers, and increased collagen content of aging skin (3).

Early study results show that collagen supplements are safe for short- and long-term use to help heal wounds and improve skin health (4). They can help improve skin elasticity, hydration, and collagen dermal density. Besides improving skin health though, some research shows that collagen supplements can help reduce certain types of joint pain and can help strengthen tendons and ligaments (5). Not to mention that it may help improve bone density in postmenopausal women.

When it comes to joint pain, a 2017 animal study looked at the effect of collagen supplements on those with osteoarthritis. Study results show that intake of hydrolyzed type 1 collagen can help reduce pain and inflammation in those mice with posttraumatic osteoarthritis (6).

How much collagen should I consume daily?

Some research shows that doses of collagen supplements between 2.5 and 15 grams of bioactive collagen peptides daily is effective and safe (5). When it comes to type 2 collagen, up to 2.5 milligrams of this type of collagen a day for 24 weeks is possible safe in most people (1,7). However, be sure to talk with your healthcare provider and pharmacist before starting any new supplement.

Side effects and safety of collagen

Research shows that collagen is generally safe for human use without adverse side effects (4). Some side effects of type 2 collagen may include nausea, heartburn, headache, diarrhea, constipation, or skin reactions (7). Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid taking collagen supplements due to lack of study on its possible side effects. Also, those who are allergic to eggs or chicken should not take type 2 collagen supplements.

Bottom line

Collagen is a vital compound when it comes to improving and maintaining skin health. Although the body contains it naturally, you lose it as you age, and skin can become loose and less elastic. Therefore, if you feel your skin is losing its luster, reach for collagen supplements to help you revive your natural glow.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in very few foods such as fish. When the skin is exposed to the sun, the human body is able to synthesize vitamin D from ultraviolet rays. It is involved in many different biological processes including, bone health, immune system and cell division.

Bone health

Vitamin D plays a key role in promoting calcium absorption in the intestine and maintaining adequate blood calcium and phosphate concentrations to enable normal bone mineralization. In this way, vitamin D is important for the proper functioning of the skeleton, and may prevent that bones to become brittle as in osteoporosis.

Other effects

Vitamin D has beneficial effects on muscle function and strength. The vitamin is also involved in cell growth, neuromuscular and immune function and reduction of inflammation. There is accumulating epidemiologic data that a low vitamin D status is inversely associated with disorders such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has acknowledged the following beneficial effects as a basis for health claims:
• Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal muscle function
• Vitamin D contributes to the normal function of the immune system and healthy inflammatory response
• Vitamin D contributes to the normal absorption/utilisation of calcium and phosphorus and maintenance of normal blood calcium concentrations
• Vitamin D contributes to the normal cell division
• Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal bones
• Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal teeth

Vitamin K

Vitamin K is a group of structurally similar fat-soluble vitamins that are required for the complete synthesis of proteins involved in blood coagulation, and for controlling binding of calcium in the bones and other tissues. Without vitamin K, blood coagulation is seriously impaired, and uncontrolled bleeding occurs. Preliminary clinical research indicates that deficiency of vitamin K may weaken bones, potentially leading to osteoporosis, and may promote calcification of arteries and other soft tissues.

Vitamin K includes two natural vitamers: vitamin K1 and vitamin K2:

Vitamin K1

Vitamin K1, also known as phylloquinone, is made by plants, and is found in highest amounts in green leafy vegetables. It performs the classic functions of vitamin K, including its activity in the production of blood coagulation proteins.
Bacteria in the gut flora can convert K1 into vitamin K2.

Vitamin K2

Vitamin K2 or menaquinone, has a similar mechanism of action as vitamin K1. It is suggested that it plays a key role in bone strength and arterial health.
EFSA has acknowledged the following beneficial effects as a basis for health claim:
• Vitamin K contributes to normal blood clotting
• Vitamin K contributes to the maintenance of normal bones
