Q: What the heck is collagen?
Collagen is the protein that holds everything in your body together. It makes up about 30% of all the protein in the human body, and is found in your bones, tendons, ligaments, connective tissues and skin, and plays various roles in your overall health. Collagen production naturally declines with age, reducing the structural integrity of the skin and instigating the weakening of cartilage in joints. You can help make up for decreased collagen production by eating collagen sourced from grass-fed bovines pasture-raised in Brazil.
Q: Why should I eat collagen?
The collagen protein used in Primal Kitchen Collagen Fuel Protein Powder is collagen hydrolysate from grass-fed cows, which is broken down into individual amino acids and easier to absorb and digest, so it’s a preferable alternative to taking collagen in, say, capsule form. Furthermore, it’s 100% protein, and we all know the benefits of ingesting clean protein.
Q: Where does your collagen come from?
We partnered with one of the world's leading collagen suppliers for our protein powder. They are a European company that sources collagen from grass-fed cows in both Germany and Brazil. They have conducted extensive clinical studies on the benefits of their exact collagen, which is superior to other collagen brands on the market due to their unique manufacturing process.
Q: Are the cows responsible for rainforest destruction in Brazil?
The cows are feeding on "off forest" land to prevent destruction of the rainforest. In the past decade, virtually all slaughterhouses have followed the lead of the top three meat producers in conducting only off forest feeding. Additionally, our supplier has signed the G-4 agreement that was initiated by Greenpeace to ensure that no new rainforest impact is created based on intensive monitoring and requirements of the G-4 agreement.
Q: What is hydrolyzed collagen?
Hydrolyzed collagen is also called collagen peptides or collagen hydrolysate. The collagen has undergone a process of hydrolysis (separating the molecular bonds between collagen strands with an acid, like lime or enzymes) to reduce the protein into smaller peptides, which renders it more readily bioavailable. The amino acid content of collagen is the same as that of hydrolyzed collagen. Most clinical studies on the benefits of collagen have been conducted using hydrolyzed collagen peptides. Collagen hydrolysate has the same amino acids (and health benefits) as gelatin but different chemical properties. Some people may find collagen hydrolysate easier to digest.
Q: What are prebiotics?
Prebiotics are food for the good bacteria that inhabit your gut. Prebiotics encourage these good bacteria to survive and thrive.
Q: What is inulin?
Inulin is a soluble plant-based fiber often used for digestive and gut health.
Q: What is monk fruit?
Also called Luo Han Goa, monk fruit is a Chinese herb cultivated for centuries by Buddhist monks. Much like stevia, it’s a delicious and natural way to sweeten without all the calories of sugar.
Q: What is konjac root?
Konjac is derived from the root of the konjac plant. It is a soluble and fermentable dietary fiber.
