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. The True Collagen is of the highest quality and purity and is hydrolysed, making it highly absorbable, odourless and tasteless. As a company, we are committed to developing the best products sourced from environmentally conscious, sustainable and organic suppliers wherever possible.
WHAT ARE HYDROLYSED PEPTIDES?
Collagen exists in nature as a very large complex molecule constructed from lots of long chains of polypeptides formed from different sequences of amino acids. 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 single amino acids or much smaller units of two (dipeptide), three (tripeptide) or very short amino acid chains to be easily absorbed into the body. Once absorbed the collagen peptides are available to contribute to collagen renewal within bones, skin and connective tissue. Our True Collagen contains hydrolysed collagen peptides which means that the long polypeptide chains have already been broken down into short peptide units (no bigger than 5000DA) that can be easily absorbed.
HOW MUCH COLLAGEN SHOULD I TAKE PER DAY?
If you are taking collagen as part of your daily beauty ritual, then ideally, we would recommend you taking between 10-20g (2-4tsp) True Collagen daily. This can be added to tea, coffee, water or even a smoothie of your choice. The beauty of True Collagen is that it’s completely odourless, tasteless and readily and completely dissolves making it an incredibly easy and versatile product to incorporate into your daily diet.
IS TRUE COLLAGEN SAFE TO TAKE DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING?
We would highly recommend that you consult with your doctor or healthcare professional regarding any new additions to your diet, as we aren’t in a position to make any medical claims. However, that said, we aren’t aware of any contraindications in taking any of our products whilst pregnant or breastfeeding.
IS TRUE COLLAGEN SAFE FOR CHILDREN?
We always recommend that the patient or parent consults a practitioner who has the knowledge of all and any medical history before taking anything new.
