100% Bovine Hydrolysed Collagen
Collagen provides strength and integrity to the structural protein matrix found in skin, bones, ligaments, tendons and cartilage.
Collagen loss is a natural part of ageing which occurs from our 30’s and increase as we grow older. Our hydrolysed collagen peptides are a specific size (under 5000DA’s) for maximum absorption and efficient integration into targeted cells.
Sourced from organic grass-fed herds in the EU and found pre-blended in our delicious brews of Coffee + Collagen and Cacao + Collagen or as our odourless, tasteless, highly dissolvable True Collagen to add to your own drinks.
Take 5 to 10g daily of True Collagen. It is incredibly versatile and can be added to any hot or cold drink or food of your choice from your morning coffee or smoothie to soups and overnight oats.
To truly nourish the skin from within we recommend 5g daily for normal skin types. Increase to 10g or more to support hormonal acne, dehydrated or prematurely ageing skin.
WHAT ARE HYDROLYSED PEPTIDES?
Our True Collagen contains hydrolysed collagen peptides which are a more available and absorbable form of amino acids,making it easy for our body to utilise. Collagen exists in nature as a very large, complex molecule constructed from lots of long chains of polypeptides. The collagen molecule itself is far too big to be absorbed across the gut wall, so it needs to be broken down during digestion into smaller chains called peptides. Once absorbed, these peptides are available to contribute to collagen renewal within bones, skin and connective tissue. ‘Hyrdolysed’ simply means ‘unchaining’ the long protein strands into smaller ‘peptides’ so we can absorb them more readily. This process is like having them ‘predigested’, making them more bioactive so we can take them up and absorb them easily to build important tissues.
IS TRUE COLLAGEN SAFE TO TAKE DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING?
You should always consult with your doctor or midwife regarding any new additions to your diet or supplements you take during your pregnancy and breastfeeding journey. Whilst there are also no studies available due to ethical challenges involving research in pregnant people, we aren’t aware of any contraindications in taking any of our products whilst pregnant or breastfeeding and they should be well tolerated.
HOW AND WHEN TO TAKE TRUE COLLAGEN
Our True Collagen has been designed to be as versatile as possible, so you can fit it easily into your daily ritual. Collagen supplementation works best when it is taken consistently. Simply add it to a drink of your choice, hot or cold or mix it into food such as yogurt, porridge, smoothies or soups.
WHEN SHOULD I START TAKING COLLAGEN?
We know that the body’s ability to produce collagen naturally starts to drop in our early 20’s. As we move past roughly 40 years old, it is thought that collagen depletes faster than our body can produce it. Therefore it possibly makes more sense to start taking collagen in your early 20s than waiting until you are older. However, just because you’re past your 20’s doesn’t mean it isn’t worth it to add it in now. Almost anyone can benefit from collagen, regardless of age or condition. If you’re within the upper age bracket – say, over 45+ – you may want to increase the amount of collagen you take each day.
HOW MUCH COLLAGEN SHOULD I TAKE PER DAY?
People take collagen for all different reasons, however for most health goals, ideally we would recommend taking between 5-15g (1.5-4tsp) of True Collagen daily. To really see the benefits, consistency is key, so making it part of your daily ritual is recommended. True Collagen can be added to tea, coffee, water, juice or even a smoothie of your choice. The beauty of True Collagen is that it’s completely odourless, tasteless and dissolves completely, making it an incredibly easy and versatile product to incorporate into your daily diet.
CAN YOU TAKE TOO MUCH COLLAGEN?
Although True Collagen is a safe supplement and we encourage you to take it daily, it is not generally regarded as a good idea to take an overwhelming amount of collagen at one time. The amount of collagen you’ll take will also depend on what your goals are, however we recommend you stick within the recommended dose, or the limits discussed by you and your doctor. Collagen is a compound your body naturally produces, so there are no harmful side effects of taking too much per se, except potentially an upset stomach or bloating. There are no studies that show upping the doses will help you reach your health goals any faster, therefore sticking to the recommended daily intake is optimal.
WHERE IS YOUR COLLAGEN SOURCED?
Our True Collagen is sourced from grass-fed cows in Europe.
It is sustainably sourced, grass-fed bovine collagen and is derived primarily from the hides. The cows have been raised naturally without hormones, antibiotics, chemicals, or GMOs.
