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:

  • Enhance bone mineral density with Calcium, which is necessary for bone structure and assists in the maintenance and function of nerve & muscle tissue.
  • Support gut health with Calcium, by assisting in the regulation of digestive enzymes
  • Support tissue strength and building with a good source of Protein from hydrolysed collagen.
  • Contains a natural source of Vitamin D from mushroom powder
  • A diet high in Calcium and adequate Vitamin D is able to reduce the risk of osteoporosis and osteoporotic fracture in people aged over 65.

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. 

Hydrolysed Collagen, FORTIBONE® Collagen Peptides (28%), Aquamin Marine Minerals* (Arctic Sea Algae), Vitamin D Mushroom Powder*. *Organic Ingredients 

Nutra Organics Collagen is sustainably derived from a bovine source (cow).

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 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:

  •  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.

Thumbs up!

The Collagen Body dissolves easily & can be added to any drink. I am bruising less easily than I was a few weeks ago which is a big plus.

A QUESTION

Hi, I have recently purchased my second container of (re- badged Joint Bone Gut Health) and also found name change confusing. Sales person advised it was exactly the same product and it is true that the ingredients are the same - however I notice all bar two of the ingredients have decreased in amount but the pricing remains the same. I also noticed the little scoop (which I found useful) is no longer provided - which is disappointing. I haven't been using your product for long enough to say it has made a substantial difference but agree that it mixes easily into smoothies etc.

Hey Cheryl, Thanks for your questions! The name hasn't changed, the product is still called Collagen Body - and the actual product and ingredients are still exactly the same. The only thing that is different is that the front used to say 'joint bone gut health' and now says 'bone strength & structure'. This is simply because we have a range of collagens (Collagen Beauty, Collagen Body and Collagen Build) that have different collagen peptides, that target different areas in the body. The peptides in Collagen Body called FORTIBONE specifically target bone health the most, so we wanted to make this difference clear from our other collagens. The ingredients and their quantities haven't changed at all :) If you look at the nutrition panels, you can see everything is still the same. We removed the scoops as a part of our sustainability commitment to moving away from all plastics. 1.5 metric tablespoons or two heaped dessert spoons is the correct amount :) We apologise if any of these changes have been confusing, and hope this clarifies everything for you. Kindest, Team Nutra

Excellent product but not excellent packaging

Excellent product but don’t appreciate the extra big packaging - packaging could be done better to lessen impact on our globe please .

Hey Karin, thank you so much for your feedback! We are so glad you love Collagen Body, and are glad you also care about your impact on the planet. Although our tubs are recyclable and made from recycled plastic themselves, we are committed to moving our entire range away from plastic and into sustainable packaging. Also, we unfortunately cannot avoid using large tubs as when the collagen powder is mixed and filled into the tubs, it becomes aerated and extremely fluffy, and fills all the way to the top. It then settles after a few days, to the point at which you receive it. We can't use smaller tubs as this would cause the collagen to overflow. This why we also state on the label that we sell by weight not volume, due to the settling that occurs. We hope this helps to clear up your concerns! But please know we are working really hard behind the scenes to improve our packaging across our entire range. Kindest, Team Nutra

I have been using this product for over two years and think it’s brilliant for helping with my gut problems (possibly leaky gut ) drs have said I have irritable bowel and this product calms my insides. I am writing this review because I just read a review where they complained about the packaging I complained about this Two years ago and was told you were looking into it Why can’t you use the paper packs like you do for the bone broth As I use this daily I have so many of these black containers I now buy the large one so I don’t accumulate so many I would also like to ask why you have changed the name from joint bone gut health and is there any difference in the new one Bobe Strengh and Structure Regards Jeanie

Hey Jeanie, thanks so much for leaving a review! We are so happy to hear Collagen Body has helped your gut so much, what an incredible result. We're sorry to hear you're disappointed with our tubs and the time it is taking for us to switch our packaging. Although they are recyclable and made from recycled plastic themselves, we are fully committed to finding a better option and we have been testing different packaging options all year. It's a long project to ensure we bring out the absolute best and most sustainable option that will maintain product quality, but one we are excited to be doing. We changed the text to Bone Strength & Structure as this is the area that Collagen Body specifically targets the most, and we needed to make the difference clear across our collagen range as we also have Collagen Beauty and Collagen Build using different collagen peptides that target different areas of collagen in the body. Hope this helps to clear things up for you! Kindest, Team Nutra
