Collagen Body is a natural and unique opportunity to create wellness from the inside out with FORTIBONE® Bioactive Collagen Peptides.~
Collagen Body is a natural formulation for anyone living an active lifestyle, or anyone concerned with their bone health, to help you feel strong inside with bioactive collagen peptides FORTIBONE®, Vitamin D and Calcium to support bone strength and structure~.
Collagen is abundant in skin, muscles, bones, joints and connective tissue, and begins to degenerate from our mid 20s.
Incorporating Collagen Body into your daily inner strength routine, together with a healthy varied diet, helps to:
Collagen is often left out of the modern diet because it is not present in substantial amounts in lean cuts of meat, but rather bones and connective tissue. Collagen Body is only the good stuff - pure type I and type III sustainably sourced collagen that fully dissolves in hot or cold liquid whilst maintaining its benefits.
~when consumed in conjunction with a healthy, varied diet.

Which Collagen Product is best for me?
That depends entirely on what your goals and priorities are, as each of our collagen powders contains different bioactive collagen peptides that have different functions in the body. We have also added some specific key nutrients to each that further support and target those functions and make them even more specialised. Collagen Beauty targets skin hair and nails, Collagen Body targets bone and Collagen Build targets muscle.
For example, If you are concerned with wrinkles and skin hydration, Collagen Beauty is the one for you! If you are concerned with bone density or have recently injured yourself and fractured a bone, then Collagen Body is the one for you! If you are focusing on building strength and lean muscle mass then Collagen Build is the one for you!
Can I take more than one collagen product at the same time?
We do not recommend taking more than one collagen product at a time. More is not always better. If you would like to target multiple body systems, we recommend taking turns with which collagen product you use. The clinical studies that demonstrated the effectiveness of each of the collagens was done by using just one of the specialised bioactive collagen peptides, every day for the trial period (usually between 8-12 weeks). So we recommend doing the same thing (for example, you may want to take Collagen Beauty for 12 weeks to help strengthen and hydrate skin over winter, then focus on Collagen Build for 12 weeks to build and strengthen lean muscle over spring). Taking more Collagen won’t cause harm (as it is a food product that is generally considered safe) but there is only so much protein synthesis and metabolism that you can do in a day. Also, consuming too much of anything isn’t a good idea, as it takes the place of other foods in the diet which may reduce the variety of foods that you have in your day. A healthy varied diet is always the best!
What 'types' of collagen are in Collagen Beauty, Collagen Body and Collagen Build?
Collagen Beauty, Collagen Body, and Collagen Build are standardised to contain type I and type III collagen. These two types of collagen are the most abundant types present in connective tissue within the human body such as in hair, skin, nails, bones, joints, muscle and ligaments.
Is it pregnancy & breastfeeding friendly?
In saying this, we do advise on all our products to seek advice from your health care professional on taking our products if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. We only say so as we believe that every pregnancy is different, taking a toll differently on each individual body in vitamin, mineral and energy levels.
We invite you to research the product to ensure that you are not sensitive to any particular ingredients.
Where does our collagen come from? Are the cows fed organic grass or grains?
If there’s one thing we are passionate about here at Nutra Organics, aside from food of course, its animals and their welfare. Therefore we have ensured that the bovine that our collagen comes from are treated under the highest animal welfare scheme possible. We do not guarantee that our bovine are fed organic grass all year around as some of them are located in Germany and due to the fact it snows there for a large portion of the year, it is impossible to ensure that they are eating grass fed 100% as their diets may need to occasionally be supplemented with wholesome non-gmo grains. However they are grass fed majority of the year.
Why bovine collagen?
We thought long and hard about this one. In the end we decided on bovine collagen for the following reasons:
There are a lot of misconceptions about the size of collagen peptides from bovine source vs marine source. One is not “bigger” or “smaller” than the other. The size of collagen peptides relies on the hydrolysis process. This is the process where collagen fibres are broken down into small peptide chains. The collagen that we use has been specifically hydrolysed to be the correct size and shape for optimal absorption and utilisation by the body, specific for it’s function!
How is Collagen different to Gelatin?
The main difference between the Collagen and Gelatin Powders are as follows;
I bought this for mum who is experiencing some pain on her hip joints. She mentioned today that she was able to walk fast to catch the train for the first time in years without any pain! I’m happy to hear this and will be ordering a second batch.
I’m not really too keen on the taste of the body Going to go back to the collagen skin hair nails gut in lemon lime delicious
Ordered the Body as I have osteoporosis and the Beauty as I have always had weak nails. I have been using Body for 2 weeks now and find it easy to take in any liquid, when that is gone I will try the Beauty. Hoping for some improvement over time.
I have been purchasing this product for many months. I had been buying a less expensive product at a health food store, but switched to this company's product based on the recommendation of my doctor. Though I haven't felt any difference in this product as yet, I will continue using this based on the organic source and manufacturing process. What I will say is that I DO notice a very negative and painful condition from a previous fracture that returns when I stop taking collagen. I believe in this product and will continue to use it as long as the price doesn't rise to a prohibitive level.
The product itself is easily digested without any taste, however there were no measuring scoops in the product this time which was disappointing. The scoop was a convenient way to ensure I was taking the correct dose. Please bring it back.
Hi Karen, Sorry to hear you're disappointed that there's no scoop any longer. We've removed all scoops from our products as part of our sustainability commitment to moving away from plastic. 1.5 metric tablespoons or two heaped dessert spoons is the correct dose. Hope this helps :) Kindest, Team Nutra
