Collagen Build is a natural formulation specifically designed to promote body toning and strength by incorporating collagen for muscles. This makes it an ideal choice for individuals leading an active lifestyle or those seeking to tone, build, and repair their lean muscle mass. Collagen Build is formulated with a great source of protein from BODYBALANCE® Bioactive Collagen Peptides and Magnesium to support muscle building, repair and function~.
Collagen is abundant in skin, muscles, bones, joints and connective tissue, and begins to degenerate from our mid 20s. Many people experience loss of lean muscle mass as the protein and collagen in our body breaks down due to ageing and lifestyle factors.
Collagen Build is pregnancy, breastfeeding and child friendly (suitable for 12 months & up).
^When consumed in conjunction with a healthy, varied diet.

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.
Collagen Build has a different action compared to other protein powders. In fact, collagen Build is perfect to mix in with other protein powders as they can complement each other (despite being an animal source protein, collagen is not a complete protein, as it lacks the EAA Tryptophan). Collagen Build is a great source of protein and magnesium, which is essential for muscle building and repair, but it’s the specialised collagen peptides that give Collagen Build it’s point of difference. Collagen Build targets the connective tissue (endomusium, perimycium, epimycium and deep fasciae) within muscle tissue. This connective tissue has been found to have a central role in muscle quality, strength and growth.
True, muscle doesn’t contain much collagen (we are looking at about 6% of total muscle mass) which is why eating lean meat isn’t a great dietary source of collagen, HOWEVER the connective tissue which is in muscle is incredibly important. It has a central role in muscle growth (including stimulation the mTOR pathway for muscle cell anabolism) transmission of signals (fibre recruitment for a synchronised contraction, increasing strength) and metabolism.
Mix collagen Build into protein shakes, smoothies, soups, porridge, sauces - any type of flavoured liquid. It can be consumed at any time of day but best consumed post workout, when at rest for optimal digestion and utilisation.
For anyone out there with a fear of bulking up - you need not be afraid. Collagen build will not turn you into the hulk.
To really bulk up takes a huge amount of effort. A lot of food (all food - not just protein), some really heavy lifting to stimulate growth, and the help of hormones. Our collagen Build is designed to improve muscle quality and body composition meaning strength and tone.
Collagen build will be a great ally for you no matter what your goals are. If your goal is to all about gains and bulking, then you will need a diet with more energy. Particularly plenty of protein and carbohydrates. You will want to be well fueled to get the most out of your workouts and have plenty of nutrients available at all times for muscle building and repair. Eat more regularly to keep your body in a “fed” state. Collagen Build provides a good source of protein for muscle building and magnesium for energy. The BODYBALANCE bioactive peptides will further help to target muscle mass and upregulate muscle building.
If your goal is a combination of building lean muscle and shedding a bit of fat, you will want to be a bit lighter on energy and carbohydrates, and also extend your fasting window to allow your body to switch over into burning stored energy. You will still want to be well fueled for workouts and post workout to maximise protein synthesis. Collagen Build will help to upregulate muscle building and repair, as well as muscle sparing during fasting windows.
If your goal is more about losing fat mass, your energy intake will be lower. Collagen Build will provide a good source of protein and is effective in muscle sparing when your body is spending a lot of time utilising stored energy. Exercise and resistance training is still very important to keep your body strong and keep your metabolism running well.
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!
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!
Collagen Build is safe for consumption during pregnancy and breastfeeding - this is because our collagen is literally just made up of pure protein derived from natural bovine sources. Our Collagen Build also contains the added benefit of naturally occurring Magnesium which further supports protein synthesis and energy. As this is naturally occurring and only present in small amounts this product is classified as safe for consumption during pregnancy and breastfeeding. We recommend if you have any concerns, that you consult your primary physician.
We proudly source all of our collagen from the most reputable, sustainable and ethical manufacturer in the world.
At Nutra Organics, our vision is to deeply nourish 10M people, while being kind to the planet in the process. As with all of our ingredients, we are only using the most sustainable collagen available.
For years we have proudly sourced our bovine collagen through Gelita, a global German publicly listed business founded in 1875, who have established themselves as a global leader in the production of scientifically researched collagen and who have been able to provide us with the strong sustainability assurances for bovine collagen. Gelita’s status as a publicly listed company also ensures a high standard of governance and controls.
Our bovine collagen is sourced from Brazil and Germany, upcycling the parts of the agriculture industry that would otherwise go to waste. Gelita have strict legal agreements in place with their suppliers, whereby raw materials are only accepted from farms that meet the highest animal welfare standards, and any farms located in protected land or indigenous areas are strictly prohibited.
Our canisters are also sustainable & fully recyclable. They are made of a combination of recycled cardboard and FSC certified cardboard. They are recyclable via the steel stream.
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!
No, unfortunately there is no commercially 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.
