What are Collagen Peptides?
Collagen Peptides are 100% hydrolyzed gelatin. There are no fillers, additives, MSG, GMOs or artificial ingredients. This is simply collagen that has gone through an additional enzyme process called hydrolysis. This process breaks down the protein chains that are naturally occurring into smaller pieces, creating a hot or cold water soluble collagen powder supplement that is easy for the body to digest and absorb.
Amino Acids and Collagen
The collagen molecule is made up of amino acids joined together to form long, molecular chains. There are 18 different amino acids in collagen, each occurring at its own level and sequence in the molecule. Collagen is an excellent dietary source of the primary amino acids that make up the protein molecule:
As a concentrated source of these amino acids, collagen nourished the tissues throughout the body, such as cartilage, bones, tendons, ligaments, muscles, vital organs, skin, hair and nails.
Collagen Shelf Life
If collagen is stored in a tightly sealed poly-lined container in normal indoor conditions, it will remain stable indefinitely. The only exception is if the collagen is kept in heat above (45°C) 113°F with relative humidity above 60%. In this extreme scenario, the collagen will gradually lose its ability to swell and dissolve.

Is your Hydrolyzed Gelatin Beef Collagen Peptides dietary supplement made from grass-fed cattle?
We are aware of some gelatin companies claiming that their gelatin comes from grass-fed cattle. However, they will never be able to certify that. The raw materials for this specific product are sourced from the same places; Brazil, Colombia and Argentina. We do sell hundreds of gelatin products that are sourced from other countries, but we are very selective in the material that is used for our dietary supplements. There is no governing body in South America that will certify beef as grass-fed because there may be occasional pieces of corn, grain, etc. that the cattle consume while grazing. We have visited and inspected the facilities from which our raw materials are sourced. We know that they are pasture raised, which is the standard for South America. Grass is the cheapest and most plentiful feed available. If you are currently purchasing beef gelatin or collagen from another company who is claiming that their product is made from 100% grass-fed cattle, we strongly recommend asking for something in writing that will certify the claim.
Can you take our Hydrolyzed Gelatin Beef Collagen Peptides more than once a day?
Absolutely! We have heard some great success stories from people who take this two or three times per day. Since this product is purely hydrolyzed gelatin, there is no toxic level.
Are the cows used to make our Hydrolyzed Gelatin Beef Collagen Peptides fed growth hormones or antibiotics?
Out of all of the testing that we have seen performed on the materials used to produce this product (hides, skin), we have never detected antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, or herbicides. As a result, none of these would be present in our finished product.
What is the difference between gelatin and hydrolyzed gelatin (collagen)?
Gelatin can only dissolve in hot liquid and will form a gel. Hydrolyzed gelatin (collagen) will dissolve in cold or hot liquid and will not form a gel.
What types of collagen are in this product?
Our Beef Collagen Peptides contain collagen types 1 and 3.
What is Type I Collagen?
Type I Collagen is the most abundant type of collagen and is made from skin, bone, tendon, and fibrous tissue.
What is Type III Collagen?
Type III Collagen is made from skin and fibrous tissue; no bone or tendon.
What does hydrolyzed mean in the case of our products?
When we hydrolyze gelatin, we do nothing more than put the gelatin in an enzyme bath. We do this to break down the gelatin’s ability to make a gel. These protein digesting enzymes help us break down and digest our protein foods. Since gelatin is a pure collagen product, it is very difficult to digest on its own. The hydrolysis merely helps us digest the product easier. The gelatin still has all of the properties that it started out with; such as amino acids. The only difference is that there are now shorter protein chains that our bodies can use. There are no MSG or artificial ingredients added.
What is the recommended serving for our Hydrolyzed Gelatin Beef Collagen Peptides?
We recommended taking 11 grams once a day.
Why do the amino acids add up to over 100%?
