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:

  • Enhance bone mineral density^
  • Support gut wellness^
  • Protein to support & build tissues^
  • Reduce risk of osteoporotic fracture^
  • Regulation of digestive enzymes^
  • Muscle and nerve function^

Collagen is often left out of the modern diet because it is not present 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 but fully dissolves in hot or cold liquid whilst maintaining its benefits.

^when consumed in conjunction with a health, varied diet.

Hydrolysed Collagen Peptides, FORTIBONE® Bioactive Collagen Peptides, Aquamin Marine Minerals* (Arctic Sea Algae), Vitamin D Mushroom* (White Button Mushroom). *Certified Organic Ingredients 

We proudly source our bovine collagen from the most sustainable and ethical manufacturer in the world.

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?

Yes!

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 your Collagen come from?

We proudly source all of our bovine collagen from the most reputable, sustainable and ethical manufacturer in the world. The cattle are located in both Germany and Brazil. Our manufacturer is the global leader for collagen manufacturing and innovation, and are the only company to have created scientifically formulated collagen peptides that are backed by multiple peer reviewed studies.

Is your collagen sustainable?

Yes! We are passionate about sustainability, which is another reason why we chose to partner with our Collagen manufacturer. You can read their 2019 Sustainability Report here which details everything from their sustainable production processes to their commitment to the highest animal welfare standards.

There are concerns that all agricultural farms in Brazil are a result of deforestation, and that the collagen industry contributes to this issue. Nutra Organics is very proud to deliver the highest quality collagen product available on the global market, and part of the criteria that assures this is the sustainable origin of our ingredients. Our Collagen is produced as a by-product of the pre-exisiting meat industry, and therefore is actually responsible for reducing a huge portion of food waste. It’s important to note that no land is cleared in the name of collagen and further, no cattle are killed to produce it directly, rather the animal hide is derived from abattoirs of the meat industry already present. 

We certainly understand that deforestation is a global issue and have taken steps to address this through our Project Give Back and Sustainable Packaging.

Are the cows fed 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 our collagen comes from are treated under the highest animal welfare schemes possible. We do not claim "grass fed" as some of them are located in climates where it snows a large portion of the year, and due to other environmental factors, such as drought, cattle are occasionally fed wholesome non-gmo grains to ensure survival. Therefore as they are not exclusively grass-fed for the entirety of their lives, we do not choose to claim grass-fed. 

Is your Collagen Certified Organic?

No, unfortunately there is no commerically viable source of certified organic collagen at this time. This is a global issue and we are doing our best to push for this change as the industry expands.

Why bovine collagen?

We thought long and hard about this one. In the end we decided on bovine collagen for the following reasons:

  • Bovine hide is a by-product of an industry that is already well established, so it reduces waste, and therefore up-cycles the parts of the animal that would otherwise be disposed of.
  • Traceability of bovine sourced collagen is much clearer than marine collagen (so it’s easy to ensure that the collagen comes from healthy, well cared for cows. “Marine” collagen is rarely even “marine” as it mostly comes from fish farms rather than the ocean, and our oceans are majorly over fished already as it is).
  • The amount of collagen that you get from one cow is massive compared to one fish. Making it much more cost effective and affordable.

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;

  • Collagen is naturally present in all connective tissue.  Gelatin is extracted from collagen, and hydrolised collagen is gelatin that has been broken down even further. Therefore, the amino acid profile is the same, but the protein sizes are different.
  • Hydrolysed collagen peptides are so small that they will dissolve in hot and cold liquid unlike Gelatin that goes solid (giving it it’s gelling effect).
  • Our Collagen products are fortified with specific Collagen Peptides that are trademarked peptides that make the Collagen Powders functional. ie. Collagen Beauty is fortified with Verisol Collagen peptides that aid in depositing Collagen in hair, skin and nails. Whereas Collagen Body is fortified with Fortibone Collagen peptides that aid in depositing Collagen in bone, ligaments, joints and muscle mass.

Fantastic!

I've been using Collagen Body for quite a while now and it's done wonders for the pain in my hands, fingers and knees and general joint pains. I don't need to take pain medication. I can definitely recommend this product.

Back Injury and Nerve Pain - Significantly Reduced!!

I've now been taking this product daily for 8 weeks and gee I feel so much better. From a former athlete, to someone who needs a walking stick some days, I've struggled being able to get myself to a good baseline where I can get myself back into decent shape. Since taking this product, not only do my hair and nails look great, but my nerve pain has reduced and back/hip/pelvis area has strengthened. I've also lost 4kilos! I have not changed anything else in my diet or routine. Yes there is a dull taste to it, but nothing is truly flavourless. My recommendation, have it warm every morning and your digestive system will thank you.

Amazing

This product has been amazing! My husband has shoulder surgery and has assisted with his mobility and pain. The only flaw is it doesn’t dissolve straight away, so it need to be stirred a lot
