We researched lots of different types of collagen and our strong belief is that our high-quality bovine collagen, with its low molecular weight, is simply the quickest and most efficient to be absorbed, and helps deliver the best results.
Some collagen products frankly taste terrible. We love eating great food, so delicious is paramount. You will crave our bars every day of the week.
Our pasture-raised, grass-fed collagen is made from parts of the animal, like hides, that would otherwise be discarded.
Bovine, marine, and poultry collagen peptides are equally bio-available.
Bovine and marine contain type I collagen, which delivers the most effective beauty benefits for your skin, hair, and nails (poultry is chiefly type II).
Bovine contains type I and type III which marine and poultry do not.
Type III collagen is also highly beneficial for skin, hair, nails and connective tissues in the body, including the gut.
Marine collagen is inferior to bovine collagen in overall proline content, a key contributor to collagen’s many benefits.
Think of edible hyaluronic acid as a “natural filler.”
HA can bind up to 1000 times its volume in water, attracting and holding moisture like a sponge, and filling in the spaces between elastin and collagen, creating what we all want; plumper, more elastic skin.
Hyaluronic acid protects fibroblasts (the cells that make collagen) against cell damage by scavenging free radicals and reducing inflammation.
As we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin naturally goes down (as does collagen production), which means there is less hyaluronic acid to protect a diminishing number of collagen-producing cells.
This cycle leads to dull, dehydrated skin that is thinner, weaker and less elastic.
