Collagen for Healthy Bones, Joints and Skin

Collagen plays a key role in skin, bone, and joint health. It promotes healthy cartilage and ligaments. This is critical because around the world the human population is aging, and our stressful lifestyles destroy collagen. This creates looser, saggier skin,  joint degeneration, pain and stiffness, and osteoporosis. Fortunately, supplementing with collagen has been shown to improve skin, joint, and bone health, which can help you stay active and healthy well into your later years.

Collagen Frequently Asked Questions

General Collagen Questions
Q: How many grams of protein per serving? 

NBI Collagen contains 10 grams of hydrolyzed Types I and III collagen per scoop, which provides nine grams of protein. 

Q: What types of collagen are in this powder?

Types I and III collagen

Q: What’s the difference between collagen and collagen peptides?

Collagen is a protein made up of repeating strands of many amino acids. When collagen is hydrolyzed to create NBI’s Collagen, it’s broken down into smaller strands of amino acids called peptides. This makes the collagen more bioavailable and easier to absorb.

Q: What are Types I and III collagen good for?

Type I collagen makes up 90% of your body’s collagen and provides structure to skin, bones, tendons, cartilage, connective tissue, and teeth. It’s the most abundant collagen in bones and skin. In fact, about 80% of the dry weight of skin is collagen. Type III collagen helps provide scaffolding and support to muscles, internal organs, and arteries.

Q: What’s better, liquid or powder collagen?

Both forms are highly bioavailable, which means your body can absorb them. Hydrolyzed collagen protein that’s used in dietary supplements is broken down into smaller peptides and amino acids. Those smaller forms are easily absorbed, regardless of whether they’re delivered as a powder or put in a liquid. In fact, the most common way to take powdered collagen is to add it to a liquid such as in coffee, tea or a smoothie and take it that way.

To get the benefits of collagen, it needs to be taken daily and should provide (or exceed) the dose used in clinical trials. In my experience, when people take collagen powder they’re more likely to take it consistently because the powder is more versatile. You can mix it into different liquids and even cook with it. I add NBI Collagen to my morning coffee with a little non-dairy creamer and love it. I’ve also made collagen energy bites and collagen chocolate pudding with our collagen.

But bioavailability is only one piece of the puzzle. The more important and clinically relevant thing to consider is the results of clinical trials. The vast majority of published clinical trials have been conducted using powdered collagen that is then added to a liquid. NBI’s Collagen was formulated based on the clinical trials, providing 10 grams of hydrolyzed collagen per serving to meet or exceed the dose of collagen used in clinical trials and shown to give results.

Q: Does it work best taken with Vitamin C or any other vitamin or mineral supplement? 

Nearly all clinical trials on collagen used only collagen, not collagen plus other nutrients. There are a small number of studies that did give collagen plus vitamin C and minerals, but those didn’t show superior benefit over just taking the collagen alone.

NBI’s Collagen is just pure hydrolyzed collagen because that’s what the research supports. Taking a high-quality multiple vitamin and mineral supplement, like Supreme Multivitamin, is a good idea for many people; however, taking vitamins and minerals in addition to collagen isn’t required to experience collagen’s benefits.

Q: How long does a bottle last?

One bottle contains 30 servings, so when taken daily it will last 30 days.

Safety and Quality

Q: Is NBI Collagen Safe?

Yes. Collagen has long been used in pharmaceuticals and food in many countries around the world. In the United States, collagen has Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status by the FDA.

Q: Is there sugar in it?

No. There isn’t any sugar in NBI Collagen.

Q: Is NBI Collagen suitable for vegetarians?

No. NBI Collagen is derived from pasture-raised cows. 

Q: Is NBI Collagen non-GMO?

Yes.

Q: Is NBI Collagen Paleo- and Keto-friendly?

Yes.

Q: Is NBI Collagen certified organic?

 No, but our collagen raw material comes from pasture-raised cows and is free of pesticides, hormones, solvents, hormones and antibiotics.

Q: Is NBI Collagen flavored?

No. It’s unflavored.

Why You Should Take Collagen

Q: Why should I take collagen?

Anyone who’s concerned with wanting healthy skin, bones, nails and joints should take collagen. Collagen plays a key role in skin, bone and joint health. It promotes healthy cartilage and ligaments. This is critical because around the world, the human population is aging, and our stressful lifestyles destroy collagen. This creates looser, saggier skin,  joint degeneration, pain and stiffness and osteoporosis. Fortunately, supplementing with collagen has been shown to improve skin, joint and bone health, which can help you stay active and healthy well into your later years.

Q: How long does it take to experience results?

In a study of NBI Collagen, 100 people took NBI Collagen for one month. Within one week of starting Collagen, 33% of participants reported improvements. Specifically, they experienced improved skin health, with increased hydration and a decrease in visible lines and wrinkles, stronger nails, and improvements in joint pain and mobility. Since individual results can vary, we recommend people Collagen for one month before expecting results.

Ideas for How to Take Collagen

Q: What are some ways to take NBI Collagen?

You can mix it into different liquids such as coffee or tea or add it to food. People can even cook with it. Dr. Neustadt has made collagen energy bites and collagen chocolate pudding with NBI’s Collagen powder. He created a FREE ebooklet of recipes that people can download from the NBI website at https://nbihealth.com/collagen. 

Q: Do people use this as a base for protein shakes?

Yes. Collgen powder makes an excellent base for protein shakes and it also goest great in smoothies. 

The Devastating Impact of Stress on Collagen

People are frazzled, overwhelmed, and stressed. One devastating and overlooked impact is how stress destroys collagen—the protein responsible for providing strength, support, and integrity to tissues and organs throughout the body, including your skin and bones.

Collagen for Healthy Bones and Joints

Collagen plays a key role in joint health, preserving bone, cartilage, and ligaments. It can be a key supplement to preserve joint health as we age.

How Menopause Destroys Collagen

Collagen destruction is your visible sign of aging. As we age, our skin gradually loses elasticity and fullness. More wrinkles start to appear when you look in the mirror, skin becomes drier and thinner. Joints may start to creak, crackle, twinge, and ache.
