Good question. Collagen is kind of a big deal. Specifically, it’s 70% of our dry-mass skin content. Which sounds gross, but really just means it’s the most abundant structural protein in the human body.
Why should I take it?
One of the major building blocks of the human body, collagen is pretty much the Swiss army knife of proteins. As we age our natural collagen production begins to slow down which can result in sagging skin, the appearance of fine lines and thinning hair - no thanks! Supplementing your diet with ingestible collagen can increase your collagen intake. It keeps your hair strong, skin smooth, reduces wrinkles, joints supple, boosts muscle growth and well, pretty much everything except set your alarm for you. Read more here.
What’s Himmense Shift and how does it work?
It’s a high dose of all-natural collagen (and a bunch of other clever stuff including Vitamins B5, B6, B12, C & D3) that you drink to give your body the boost you need.
What does it taste like?
Usually, collagen itself has a slightly bitter taste, which people get used to in a jiffy. But just to make sure you love it, ours tastes like mixed berry.
Is it natural?
Our marine collagen is all natural, baby. In fact, we ensure all our ingredients are responsibly sourced and of the highest quality.
How and when shall I take it?
Like a shot of tequila. But good for you. Open the lid, slam it back, done. And as for when, it’s a bit more complicated. Take one, once a day, any time you like. (Probably not just after brushing your teeth though, the Mixed Berry flavour and toothpaste is an acquired taste, to put it lightly). You can also add SHIFT to any hot or cold liquid of your choosing including smoothies. Just shake it like a tail feather and drink that goodness.
Can I take it if I’m allergic to fish?
Our base ingredient is marine collagen, sourced from the skin of freshwater fish, so it’s not recommended for those with allergies to fish - sorry about that. It does NOT however, contain any shellfish or crustacean, so no worries there.
Is it gluten free?
Yup. Sorry gluten fans, this is a strictly no gluten zone.
Can I take it if I’m diabetic?
Yep. Our products are free from sugar, fat and cholesterol, so you’re good to go.
How long does it take to see results?
We’ve seen brilliant results in as little as 2 weeks. But every body is different, so if it’s taking a little longer - stick with it, it’s 100% worth it. They say "prevention is better than cure" so to reap the maximum benefits, we recommend you start taking Collagen daily from your mid 20's. But it's never too late to start.

How much protein is in it?
In every 20ml dose, there’s 5.4 grams of lean, clean, power-packed protein. So if you need a hit - we've got you covered.
Can I take it with other medications & supplements?
We don’t know of any conflict, or adverse affect - but if you’ve got any worries about this at all, speak to your doctor - they’ll know best.
Are there any side effects?
Nope. We put our products through their paces and we’ve never seen any unwanted side-effects. Sadly, no wanted side-effects either though, like wings, laser vision, or the power of grayskull... sorry.
Where do babies come from?
We, uh, can’t help you with that one.
I have another question.
We could talk about this stuff all day - just drop us a line and we’ll be happy to help.
