We offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. Just contact us within 60 days of your purchase.
Collagen is rich in Glycine (23%) , Proline (13.7%), Hydroxyproline (12.3%) , Glutamic acid (10%), Alanine (8.4%) and Arginine (7.7%)
Collagen can be obtained through foods like bone-broths, organ meats, crustaceans and fish stews. These foods tend to be time consuming to prepare, hard to find or not appealing to our modern palates. Primal Collective Collagen offers you an efficient way to add the missing collagen to your lifestyle.
What is Collagen?
The most abundant protein in the body, collagen (in latin means to produce glue)is a rigid and stretch-resistant matrix of protein molecules made up of amino acids that provide structural support to the extracellular space of your skin, tendons, bones and ligaments.
Collagen can be further divided into several groups depending on the type of structures they form. There are 28 various types of collagen that have been discovered, but by far, the most common are types I through IV, with type I comprising over 90% of collagen in the human body.- Biochemistry, Collagen Synthesis (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK507709/)
Primal Collective collagen protein powder is neutral in flavour and textureless. It dissolves easily in hot or cold liquids. This allows for easy blending and the creation of a clean and fresh tasting smoothie, hot chocolate, turmeric lattes.
To use, blend 1-2 tablespoons (12 to 24g) with 400ml of water or create:
A satiating and creamy Keto Coffee, Muesli bars, Jelly, Green tea...the options are limitless.
Consumption of Primal Collective™ collagen may support efforts to relieve pain in joins, including tendonitis in elbows and knee pain. Research suggests collagen hydrolysate supports healthier looking skin, including filled in frown lines.
Collagen synthesis naturally slows with age, making it useful to supplement for ongoing health and beauty.
Enjoy Primal Collective™ Collagen as part of a daily routine that include Turmeric and Omega 3s.
Collagen Hydrolysate vs Gelatine:
Primal Collective collagen is enzymatically processed several times to leave its peptides intact, resulting in a neutral tasting, highly available protein that doesn’t clump up or have a strong taste like gelatine.
How is your collagen supplement made?
Collagen as a supplement is sourced from the hides of cows or pigs. Nowadays, it is also being sourced from processed fish. However, our collagen is sourced only from the hides of grass fed beef cattle from Brazil.
Collagen is broken down into gelatine which can be broken down further into hydrolysed collagen. Hydrolysed collagen is a polypeptide composite made by further hydrolysis of denatured collagen or gelatine. In hydrolysate, the molecular mass and the size of the molecules have been deliberately decreased by hydrolysis part of peptide bonds of the gelatine molecules. This will make the hydrolysed collagen dissolved in cold water and does not gel anymore but still has surface active properties. The processes involved in processing hydrolysed collagen are demineralisation, extraction of collagen to gelatine, enzymatic hydrolysis to obtain hydrolysed collagen, ion exchange, filtration, evaporation, sterilisation and finally drying.
Primal Collective™ Collagen does not contain any other ingredients. No dairy, egg, sugar, corn, yeast, wheat, soy, gluten, artificial flavours or preservatives.
A 24-Week study on the use of collagen hydrolysate as a dietary supplement showed improvement of joint pain in athletes. The results of this study have implications for the use of collagen hydrolysate to support joint health and possibly reduce the risk of joint deterioration in a high-risk group.
A study published in Complementary Therapies in Medicine favourably evaluated the efficacy and safety of a food supplement made of collagen hydrolysate 1200 mg/day versus placebo during 6 months, in subjects with joint pain at the lower or upper limbs or at the lumbar spine.
Consumption of specific collagen peptides combined with calf-strengthening exercises enhances function and reduces pain in achilles tendinitis.
Oral ingestion of collagen hydrolysate leads to elevated levels of collagen-derived peptides in the blood, Pro-Hyp enrichment in the skin was derived from Gly-Pro-Hyp hydrolysis, as the administration of pure Gly-Pro-Hyp peptide led to similar results. The results suggest that functional peptides can be transferred to the skin by dietary supplements of collagen.
A 2006 medical literature review revealed that collagen hydrolysate has been shown to be absorbed intestinally and to accumulate in cartilage. Collagen hydrolysate ingestion stimulates a statistically significant increase in synthesis of extracellular matrix macromolecules by chondrocytes. These findings suggest mechanisms that might help patients affected by joint disorders such as OsteoArthritis.
Bioactive collagen peptide consumption was found to be beneficial in prevention of UVB-induced wrinkle formation and transepidermal water loss. It improved epidermis thickness, and increased skin hydration.
A review in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology suggested that of oral collagen supplementation is a promising ingredient for wound healing and skin ageing. Oral collagen supplements also increase skin elasticity, hydration, and dermal collagen density. Collagen supplementation is generally safe with no reported adverse events.
Collagen-peptide supplementation could be an effective remedy to improve hydration, elasticity, and wrinkling in human skin. In this study, human subjects showed improvements across parameters of skin hydration, wrinkling, and elasticity after evaluations at 6 weeks and 12 weeks. None of the subjects presented adverse symptoms. These results suggest that LMWCP can be used as a health functional food ingredient to improve human skin hydration, elasticity, and wrinkling.
