How absorbable are collagen peptides in my body? Further Food Collagen Peptides are short-chain amino acids and are highly bioavailable, meaning that the collagen is absorbed immediately. Research has shown that more than 90% of collagen is absorbed into the bloodstream within the first six hours after consumption. This means collagen can begin restoring and repairing skin, bones, joints and ligaments immediately!
How do I use it? How many scoops should I consume per day? Take one to two scoops one or two times per day. More can be taken for an additional protein boost.
Are there any side effects? No known side effects have been reported. We recommend not taking collagen on an empty stomach in order to prevent any intestinal discomfort that may occur during digestion of large amounts of pure protein.
How long will it be before I see results, and how long will the results last? Collagen begins restoring and repairing skin, bones, joints, ligaments and your gut immediately. Clinical trials have shown visible improvements after four to twelve weeks of supplementation, depending on the study and the benefit being measured. However, one should take collagen peptides indefinitely to combat aging because our body produces less and less collagen every year. Supplementing with collagen is not a temporary fix, it’s a lifelong dedication to better health from the inside out.
I eat a lot of protein/meat. Do I still need to take it? Yes! Western diets are mainly composed of eating muscle-meat proteins instead of connective tissues proteins which are rich in collagen. Only collagen protein can repair our connective tissues, ligaments, joints, skin, hair, nails, teeth, and bones.
What does it taste like? Our collagen is a protein powder that is tasteless and odorless, so it can be added to any drink or food without changing the taste. You can mix it and use it in a variety of recipes, click here for collagen recipe ideas.
What are the ingredients and how do I store it? Further Food Collagen is made with 100% hydrolyzed collagen peptides. It’s pure protein, and free from sugar, preservatives, artificial sweeteners or any added ingredients! It should be stored at room temperature, in a cool, dry environment.
Is collagen peptides the same as gelatin? No. Collagen and gelatin are both sourced from cartilage and have the same makeup of amino acids, but gelatin undergoes more extensive processing which decreases its bioavailability. Collagen peptides help our body to repair and replenish cells in a more effective and beneficial way than gelatin. However, collagen peptides and collagen protein are the same thing and we use them interchangeably.
Can children eat collagen? Yes. Collagen protein is tasteless and odorless, which makes it great for picky eaters. All our collagen products are a clean, pure protein source without any sugar or preservatives, so parents can boost a child’s nutrition and protein intake without any harmful additives or ingredients.
Can diabetics use collagen? Absolutely! In fact, taking collagen is even more important for people with diabetes! Diabetics have high blood sugar levels which can cause breakdown of collagen through a process called glycation. This leads to faster aging and increases their need for collagen supplementation.
