This Collagen is one of my absolute favorite supplements and these capsules make it easy to use every single day! There are a lot of different collagen choices out there, and it can be really difficult to find a clean, high-quality source. That’s why I custom formulated my own hydrolyzed Collagen protein. It’s sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised beef, and is also 100% non-GMO.
Collagen is the most important and abundant structural protein in your body. Think of Collagen as the ‘glue’ that holds your body together. Your skin, bones, connective tissue, cartilage, and joints all depend on ample collagen to be healthy, strong, and flexible.
Most of us cannot get enough Collagen from our diets alone. Even those of us eating a clean, healthy, Paleo-inspired diet have trouble getting as much collagen as our distant ancestors did, let alone enough for optimal health. Unless you’ve got an 8-quart crockpot simmering bone broth from grass-fed, antibiotic-free cow bones all day every day, then you are very likely in need of a high-quality Collagen supplement!
Collagen is fantastic for those concerned with leaky gut. Collagen is full of amino acids and peptides that help maintain and promote optimal gut lining health. The cells lining your intestinal tract love this stuff, and so many of my patients report greater digestive comfort after using it. Supporting the gut lining is absolutely paramount for those concerned with autoimmunity, healthy thyroid function, and a balanced and normal inflammation response.
Collagen is critical if you’re looking to optimize the health of your muscles, bones, and joints, as well as your hair, skin, and nails. It’s even more important after the age of 40 when your body’s Collagen production naturally declines. Why do we get wrinkles at the age of 40? Well, a lot of that has to do with not having enough Collagen to support our skin!
There are different types of Collagen out there, however, Type I & III are the most important to supplement with. My grass-fed, pasture-raised beef Collagen is pure, hydrolyzed Type I & III. These types lend all the great benefits to your skin, bones, hair, nails, and connective tissue.
Collagen supports healthy weight management by optimizing lean muscle mass. It even helps curb sugar cravings by assisting with healthy insulin production and pancreatic function. My grass-fed, hydrolyzed Collagen is also rich in conditionally essential amino acids that many of us are lacking in, such as glycine, which supports a healthy mood and restful sleep.
The capsules are convenient and easy to swallow - perfect for an active lifestyle. When I can’t make a smoothie, I take 6 capsules daily, 3 with lunch and 3 with dinner, and I’m set for the whole day! It’s never been easier for me to get the collagen my body so desperately needs.
Collagen Protein capsules are great for anyone who:
Directions: Take 6 capsules daily with 8oz of water and preferably with a meal.
Contents: 180 Capsules
DOES NOT CONTAIN: Gluten, Wheat, Dairy, Corn, Soy, GMOs, or Yeast.
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, grass-fed cows that are never given GMO-feed or antibiotics.
Why is it important to use hydrolyzed Collagen?
Dietary collagen is difficult to digest and not very absorbable. 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.
What time of day should I take the Collagen Capsules?
Collagen can be taken any time, day or night. However, if possible, it should be taken with food.
How long should I take Collagen?
Collagen can be used indefinitely for 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 capsules are 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 providers.
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 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. Plus, the proteins and peptides in my Collagen Protein capsules are quite stable at moderately high temps. However, I recommend that they be stored at room temperature if possible.
How does Dr. Myers’ Collagen Protein Capsules differ from Collagen Protein powder?
The Collagen Protein powder is amazing and perfect for smoothies and other recipes. However, you may not always have time or the ability to make a smoothie and that’s where the capsules come in. Both are sourced from the highest quality grass-fed cows, just now you have options for how you CHOOSE to take them. Collagen is essential for a healthy gut lining, strong hair, skin, nails, connective tissue, and much much more!
