The groundbreaking difference that set’s our collagen peptides apart from the rest is an amazing technology known as agglomeration. Most hydrolyzed collagen powders dissolve relatively easily in hot liquids, such as your bulletproof coffee. However, add them to your morning orange juice or sparkling water, and you’ll find yourself with a gag-inducing, clumpy, gritty mess. The reason this happens is that naturally, collagen peptides are tiny particles. When you put a scoop of traditional collagen peptides in a cold liquid, the outside of the particle mass becomes wet, preventing the water from moving inside the mass to the dry particles. Dry particles on the inside and wet particles on the outside create the dreaded clumps so commonly found when you try to mix collagen peptides in cold liquid.
To fix the mixability problem, we use this agglomeration process in our Insta-Sorb technology. Our collagen peptides are agglomerated with water, no added binders or fillers. During this process, collagen peptide powder is blown into the air and misted with water, causing many of the smaller particles to stick together. This process creates larger particles, increasing the surface area. The water acts as a bridge between the particles, so when you pour a scoop of our collagen peptide powder into cold liquid, the bridges pull water into the larger particles, eliminating the problem of collagen peptides sitting on top of the water. Our powder begins to dissolve instantly, and with a slight stir, you’ll find it thoroughly blended without clumping or separation, no blender required!
Yes! Genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, are plants or other living organisms whose genetic code is altered in a laboratory for some benefit to farmers or the consumer. In most instances, GMOs allow a crop to be sprayed with toxic chemical herbicides that kill surrounding weeds but enable the crop to survive, unaffected. The real problem with GMOs is that they aren’t found naturally, they are relatively new to the scene, and their long-term effects on our health are unknown because the real test for safety is time and GMOs don’t have the history that can assure our safety. Our collagen peptides are completely non-GMO.
As celiac diagnoses increase in the United States, and the number of people with non-celiac gluten sensitivity is on the rise as well, it’s crucial to check hidden sources for gluten contamination. Vitamins and supplements are one of the largest areas of hidden gluten, which can wreak havoc on the health of a celiac patient. NutriRise Collagen Insta-Sorb Peptides are entirely gluten-free.
Also, our collagen is free of all common allergens, including dairy, wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, shellfish, lactose, corn, soy, sesame, and palm derivatives.

All raw materials and finished products are tested in the United States.
Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the human body and makes up one-third of the total protein in our bodies. Collagen primarily lives in our skin, muscles, tendons, and joints. It also helps to promote a healthy turnover of skin cells and is responsible for the firmness and elasticity of our skin as well. Our teeth, blood vessels, and even parts of our eyes contain collagen. Figuratively speaking, it’s the glue that holds us together and is adequately named because the word “collagen” comes from the Greek word “kólla,” meaning glue.
Collagen supplementation is reported as having many health benefits, internally and externally as well. While it is not an overnight cure or the fountain of youth, scientific studies back up the effectiveness in some areas, and in others, further studies are needed to determine the potential effects. Some possible health benefits include:
- Improvement in skin health, boosting elasticity and hydration
- Decreases joint pain by supporting and protecting our cartilage
- Helps prevent bone loss by maintaining the structural integrity of the bone
- Improve muscle mass
- Improve cardiovascular health by supporting the structures of your arteries and other blood vessels
- Improve hair and nails
- Improve gut health
- Improve brain health
- Encourage healthy weight loss
Collagen is a great tool in your weight loss arsenal. According to clinical research trials, it helps to increase feelings of fullness which decreases your daily calorie intake. Studies show that meals containing a collagen supplement result in a 40% higher satiation rating than meals without it. By increasing satiety, collagen peptides may help keep you from overeating, making it easier to stick with your healthy eating plan!
We recommend that you mix one scoop of our collagen peptides with water or your favorite beverage once per day. You can also mix our collagen powder into foods such as yogurt, smoothies, or even mix it into baked goods.
Most clinical trials studying the effects of collagen last from four weeks to 24 weeks. We recommend giving collagen a minimum of one month of consistent use to notice results with your hair, skin, and nails. Other health concerns, such as repairing joint health, may take longer. Those studies lasted much longer, up to 24 weeks at a time. While collagen is clinically proven effective for many different situations, it is not an overnight cure. Remember to be patient and consistent with your supplementation.
There’s been a debate about whether or not the heat from coffee works to denature the proteins and amino acids in your collagen supplement. Although heat does play a factor, and it can irreversibly damage the proteins and amino acids found in collagen peptides, the temperature required to achieve this level of destruction is far beyond what your Keurig brews. Collagen peptides are safe up to 572 degrees Fahrenheit.
Collagen is a very versatile supplement. You can take it in the morning or at night, it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t contain any stimulants that would keep you up at night. Many people enjoy mixing collagen peptides in their morning coffee or smoothie as they start their day. However, you may find that taking collagen at night is better for your schedule. Whatever way works best for you is completely acceptable. Just be consistent with your usage and you will reap the benefits.
As we age and collagen fibers in our skin begin to break down and are replaced at a slower rate, we lose the fullness, elasticity, and glow of our youth. Our hair and nails lose moisture, become brittle, and grow much slower than they used to. Our outward appearance is a constant reminder of our age, and research proves that supplementing with collagen improves the health of our hair, skin, and nails! Fine lines and wrinkles show improvement through various clinical trials, reducing their depth and appearance over time when collagen peptides are added to the diet. In one research study, 69 percent of participants saw significant improvement in their facial lines, 43 percent said their hyperpigmentation, and 82 percent had improved skin hydration!
Research studies also show a 12 percent improvement in nail growth and a 42 percent decrease in broken nails, indicating that collagen helps strengthen nails and speeds their growth. Collagen also helps build keratin, the primary protein found in hair. Adding our collagen to your diet can help encourage hair growth through the production of new keratin.
Quite the contrary! Collagen contains amino acids like glycine that actually helps your body remove toxins from your liver. Since collagen helps provide the structure that holds together all of your internal organs, liver included, it is actually healing and restorative to your liver. It helps to protect it from damage because of the complex blend of amino acids naturally found in the collagen peptides.
Your body naturally makes collagen. Most collagen peptides supplements are hydrolyzed. This is a process where collagen is broken down into smaller amino acid chains, so our bodies can digest and absorb it quickly. The smaller the molecules, the easier it is to absorb. Current research studies show that collagen supplementation is generally well tolerated by most individuals. It’s always a good idea to talk with your doctor before starting any supplement.
Potentially. In one study, researchers gave one group of participants a collagen supplement for 18 weeks and another group received a placebo. At the conclusion of the study, researchers found that the collagen group had lower blood pressure than the placebo group. They also discovered that the collagen group had less arterial stiffness and higher levels of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide aids in lowering blood pressure and helps increase blood flow throughout your body. More research is needed to further understand how collagen impacts blood pressure but these findings are certainly promising!
Although collagen peptides are generally well tolerated by most people, it is possible that you may experience bloating, gas, and other digestive issues if you take too much. To counteract this, stick with the recommended serving size, once per day. If you still experience gas or bloating, take half a scoop for several days and work your way up. Since collagen peptides are already broken down, the chance of having these issues is slim.
Many different factors cause your collagen to break down. Some things, like age, happen to us all. However, other lifestyle factors can cause your collagen to break down faster. Smoking, sun exposure, stress, and excess sugar intake all accelerate break down. To help maintain your collagen, eat a healthy diet, limit your sugar intake, exercise often, avoid smoking, and wear sunscreen anytime you go outside. Use collagen peptides daily to help supplement your body’s collagen production.
Our Collagen Insta-Sorb Peptides contain 41 servings per container, more than double that of other brands. Each serving provides 10g of protein from grass-fed, pasture-raised cows. These cows are naturally healthier than cows fed a diet of corn and raised in confinement. The digestive system of a cow is meant to process grass, not grains, such as corn. When cows graze in pastures and eat their natural diet, their bodies usually function with less disease. They don’t require prophylactic antibiotics like factory farm cattle, which are so prone to illness and disease. These cows are also treated humanely, with the emphasis on the wellbeing of the cow, not on the goals of massive factory farms. Healthier cows yield a healthier and higher quality collagen peptide supplement in the end, eliminating your exposure to unwanted toxic pesticides, antibiotics, and other chemicals used in the treatment of sick cows.
Collagen proteins help to maintain the structural integrity of all 4,000 square feet of our intestinal lining! If you’ve ever experienced frequent digestive troubles, including constipation, gas, diarrhea or bloating, chronic fatigue, headaches, joint pain, memory loss, or brain fog, you may have intestinal trouble known as a leaky gut. This occurs whenever holes or cracks form in the intestines, allowing particles to pass through into the body, causing inflammation and autoimmune reactions and a myriad of health issues. Our collagen peptides may be able to help strengthen the intestinal lining and seal the leak, healing it over time.
