“Nippi and STAUBER are truly excited to be entering into this partnership.

STAUBER is focused on distributing breakthrough health ingredients with scientifically proven benefits and TruMarine™ Collagen fits well with their portfolio of premium products.”
STAUBER recognizes the growing potential and increasing demand for superior collagen products. “Our focus is on offering top quality, premier ingredients – and TruMarine certainly meets that criteria,” Emphasizes Dan Stauber, CEO of STAUBER. “Since TruMarine™ is carefully extracted from marine sources of Collagen Type I, it offers a superior alternative to other animal based collagen products and meets consumers highest standards.”
The nutraceutical industry is currently driven by a growing demand for the highest quality collagen peptides with the substantial increase in collagen peptide sales, up more than 25% according to recent Mintel Research data. Studies support that Type I collagen peptides extracted from marine sources consist of small peptide molecules that have enhanced bioavailability and digestibility compared to other collagen products.
