Collagen is a protein found everywhere in our bodies, making up over 60% of our total protein. Collagen protein contains 18 amino acids, including proline, arginine, glycine and hydroxyproline. These promote rebuilding, rejuvenation and growth in:
Skin, Muscles, Hair, Joints, Nails, Hearts, Liver, Prostate, Blood, Cells and Lungs.Unfortunately our body’s collagen production drops off as we grow older. By age 40, our collagen depletes faster than it is produced, and by age 60 we only produce 50% of the collagen we did at age 30. That’s a significant decrease.
Collagen peptides dissolve into liquids, meaning it can be mixed into smoothies, soups or even some baked goods. Collagen is tasteless, so your meal will be as edible as it was before.
Our collagen is sourced from 100% pasture raised grass fed South American cows. It is non-GMO, contains no gluten, wheat, corn, eggs, dairy, soy, or yeast. We rigorously tested for purity and packaged in the USA at a state of the art FDA-cGMP compliant facility.
YES. Our hydrolyzed collagen is 100% all-natural collagen and free of pesticides, hormones, chemicals and contaminants. Amandean collagen contains no additives.
From birth, our cattle are raised on lush grasslands, giving them space, areas to graze and freedom to roam. Stress-free cows means a better product.
From South America, including Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay. With abundant open pastures, these countries favor grass-fed grazing for their cattle. We select the best of these farms and source our bovine hides from there.
Collagen peptides dissolve in hot or cold liquid, whereas gelatin can only mix in hot liquids but will return to its gel state once the liquid cools. In a health context they are very similar, although the shorter amino acid chains in collagen peptides are a little easier to absorb for our bodies.
They are enzymatically processed, which is the best way to keep the health benefits intact.
