FAQ

The groundbreaking difference that set’s our collagen peptides apart from the rest is a fantastic technology known as agglomeration. Most hydrolyzed collagen powders dissolve relatively quickly in hot liquids, such as 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 commonly found when mixing collagen peptides powder into cold liquid.

To remedy the mixability problem, we use this agglomeration process in our Insta-Sorb technology. Our collagen peptides are agglomerated with water, with no added binders or fillers. Collagen peptides powder is blown into the air and misted with water during this process, causing many 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 hydrolyzed 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 to benefit farmers or consumers. 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 peptide supplement is entirely 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 for hidden sources of gluten. 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 hydrolyzed collagen supplements are free of all common allergens, including dairy, wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, shellfish, lactose, corn, soy, sesame, and palm derivatives.

Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the human body and makes up one-third of the total protein in our bodies. Collagen is found in all connective tissue: in our skin, muscles, tendons, and joints. It 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 appropriately 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 skin elasticity and hydration
  • Decreases joint pain by supporting and protecting our cartilage
  • Helps prevent bone loss by maintaining the structural integrity of the bone
  • Improves lean muscle mass
  • Improves cardiovascular health by supporting the structures of your arteries and other blood vessels
  • Improves hair and nails
  • Improves gut health
  • Improves brain health
  • Encourages healthy weight loss

A collagen supplement is an excellent 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 improving joint health, may take longer. While collagen protein is clinically proven effective for many different situations, it is not an overnight cure. Remember to be patient and consistent with your supplementation.
Highly unlikely! There’s been some 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 works best for you is entirely acceptable. Just be consistent with your usage, and you will reap the benefits.

As we age and collagen synthesis declines, we notice the signs of aging in wrinkles, fine lines, loss of skin hydration, and elasticity. Collagen fibers naturally break down but are repaired at a slower rate, and our hair and nails lose moisture, become brittle, and grow much slower than they used to. Research proves that supplementing with collagen supports healthy skin, hair, 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 had reduced 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 protein powder helps strengthen nails and speeds their growth. Collagen also helps build keratin, the primary protein found in hair. Adding our hydrolyzed collagen supplement to your diet can help encourage hair growth by facilitating keratin production.

Quite the contrary! Collagen contains amino acids like glycine that help 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 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 they are 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. After 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. Further research is needed to understand how collagen impacts blood pressure, but these findings are certainly promising!
Although collagen peptides are generally well tolerated by most people, 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 gradually increase your intake. Since hydrolyzed collagen peptides are already broken down, the chance of having these issues is slim.
Many different factors cause your collagen to break down. Some factors, like aging, are unavoidable. 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, wear sunscreen anytime you go outside, and take 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 more prone to illness and disease. These cows are also treated humanely, emphasizing the animal’s well-being, not on the goals of massive factory farms. Healthier cows yield a more beneficial 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 the intestinal lining! If you experience 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 leaky gut. This occurs whenever holes or cracks form in the intestines, allowing particles to leak out of the intestines, causing inflammation, autoimmune reactions, and many health issues. Our collagen peptides may help strengthen the intestinal lining and seal the leaks, healing them over time.
Collagen production begins to drop by 1% each year in your early 20’s. By the age of 45, you’ve lost 25% of your collagen. It makes up 75% of the protein in your skin and 90-95% of your bone mass. It’s no wonder, so many issues begin to occur in mid-life.
We recommend taking one to two servings of our Hydrolyzed Collagen peptides per day. If you’re concerned about anti-aging, gut health, or hair, skin, and nails growth, we recommend trying two servings per day for one to two months and evaluating your progress after that point. Collagen is generally well tolerated by most people, but if necessary, start with one serving per day and increase after one week. You can easily add our unique formula to your smoothies, yogurt, or even a cup of coffee without changing the taste or texture of your food or drink, so it’s easy to take every day!
