What is Collagen?
Collagen is a hard, insoluble, and fibrous protein that makes up one-third of the protein in the human body. Your body synthesizes Collagen from special amino acids found in various foods. Our bodies also need certain minerals and vitamin C to manufacture collagen. My Collagen comes from pasture-raised cows that are grass-fed and never given GMO-feed or antibiotics.
Why is it important to use hydrolyzed Collagen?
Dietary collagen is difficult-to-digest and not very absorbable. It also mixes poorly into liquids. Hydrolyzing collagen involves breaking up the difficult to digest proteins into easily digested peptides, or chains of beneficial amino acids. This ensures far greater absorption and bioavailability. Hydrolyzing collagen also guarantees that it mixes easily into hot or cold beverages without clumping!
What time of day should I take the Collagen?
Collagen can be taken any time, day or night. I like to mix a scoop or two into my morning smoothie or add it to my hot tea before bed. It really helps support restful sleep!
How long should I take Collagen?
Collagen can be used indefinitely for the best results. Many of my patients take Collagen every day and have done so for years!
Is it safe for my child to take Collagen?
Collagen is safe for most kids, so long as they do not have a legitimate beef allergy. Collagen can help kids grow strong healthy bones and teeth! Although we recommend speaking with your pediatrician before starting any new supplements.
Is Collagen okay to take while pregnant or nursing?
Yes. Provided you are not allergic to Collagen protein from beef, on any prescribed medications that could be contraindicated, or have been advised by your physician not to take collagen for any reason, then The Myers Way® Collagen Protein is safe to use in doses recommended on the product label. If you have any concerns whatsoever, I always recommend speaking with your physician or other qualified healthcare provider.
I’ve heard collagen can contain monosodium glutamate (MSG). Does your collagen contain MSG?
Absolutely not. Collagen protein generally contains about 11% glutamic acid by weight, which is actually significantly less than beef, poultry, rice protein, and many other foods. Another important fact to be aware of is that almost all of the glutamic acid, a normal amino acid that occurs in most foods we humans eat, is bound in amino acid chains called peptides in Collagen. Very little glutamic acid in my Collagen is in its free form. What is in the free form, is most certainly not chemically bound to sodium to make MSG. In fact, Collagen contains less processed free glutamic acid than orange juice, honey, grapefruit and lemon juice, and even breast milk. To summarize, there is no MSG in my Collagen and very little free glutamic acid!
Is Collagen Protein damaged by heat?
All proteins are damaged by high heat to some extent. Proteins are long chains of amino acids bound together. High heat can potentially fold and warp the amino acid chains into new shapes and structures called amines that may be unusable by the body, or even harmful. This is why you should avoid charring or overcooking meat. The proteins and peptides in my Collagen Protein are quite stable at moderately high temps, so adding it to a hot cup of tea or coffee, or baking it at low temps (below 300 degrees) will not denature it too much.
