Radiant Hair, Skin & Nails
It is essential to provide our bodies with collagen since it's a basic building block for skin, hair, nails, bones, and joints. Collagen helps nourish and plump skin by restoring its moisture. That works to improve elasticity and tone while making your skin glow. It helps strengthen the very structure of your hair, skin, and nails – helping you look your most beautiful and radiant.
Bone & Joint Health
Studies have shown that taking 10 grams daily of a collagen supplement such as Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, may increase bone density. That's not surprising when you know that collagen makes up about 90% of our organic bone mass.
Collagen Peptides vs. Beef Gelatin
Both forms of collagen are much alike and both offer amazing nourishment. They share similar amino acid profiles and provide comparable nutritional benefits. However, Vital Proteins Peptides are gelatin proteins that have been broken down into smaller peptide chains, allowing the Collagen Peptides to resist gelling when mixed in hot or cold liquids. For that reason, Collagen Peptides are not suitable for use in recipes calling for gelatin. But, they are perfect mixed in coffee, juice, smoothies, and basically any beverage you prefer – even water because they are tasteless. Also, Collagen Peptides can be used in your favorite cold or cooked recipes. In contrast, Beef Gelatin will gel and therefore should be used when that effect is desired, such as a thickener in sauces and gravy, or to make puddings or healthy gummy treats.
Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides powder is made from high-quality Nelore breed bovine hides from healthy, grass fed, pasture raised cows from Brazil. Raised in this way and in this location, the risk for the presence of the hormone rBGH in the cattle's feed is eliminated. Since the Nelore breed is not utilized for dairy, no rBGH is used in their production in that way either. There is also a law in Brazil prohibiting the use of hormones in cattle feed. In addition, Vital Proteins ensures that the standards of care for each animal is in alignment with the Global Animal Partnership, a 5-step animal welfare rating standard. The hides are treated with an alkaline solution of lime and water, then heated. The peptides are made by further breaking down the protein with enzymes in a process that does not involve high heat, which helps ensure a fresh product.
