Got Questions About Collagen? We got answers!

Collagen! It’s one of those health foods you’ve heard about in passing. Can you add it to your morning coffee? Will it help your hair? Bones? Is it just a trend? And the question that really matters: will it really improve my health? Look no further. You have collagen questions? We have answers.

1. How absorbable is Further Food Collagen Peptides in my body?

Further Food Collagen Peptides are short-chain amino acids and are highly bioavailable, meaning that the collagen is soon after consumption. This means collagen can begin restoring and repairing skin, bones, joints and ligaments immediately!

2, How do I use it? How many scoops should I consume per day?

Take one to two scoops one or two times per day. More can be taken for an additional protein boost.

3. Are there any side effects?

No known side effects have been reported. We recommend not taking collagen on an empty stomach in order to prevent any intestinal discomfort that may occur during digestion of large amounts of pure protein.

4. How long will it be before I see results, and how long will the results last?

Collagen begins restoring and repairing skin, bones, joints, ligaments and your gut immediately. Clinical trials have shown visible improvements after four to eight weeks of supplementation. However, one should take collagen peptides indefinitely to combat aging because our body produces less and less collagen every year. Supplementing with Further Further Food Collagen Peptides is not a temporary fix, it’s a lifelong dedication to better health.

5. I eat a lot of protein/meat. Do I still need to take it?

Yes! Western diets are mainly composed of eating muscle-meat proteins instead of connective tissues proteins which are rich in collagen. Only collagen proteins can repair our connective tissues, ligaments, joints, skin, hair, nails, teeth and bones.

6. What does it taste like?

Further Food Collagen Peptides is tasteless and odorless, so it can be added to any drink or food without changing the taste. You can mix it and use it in a variety of recipes, click here for collagen recipe ideas.

7. What are the ingredients and how do I store it?

Further Food Collagen Peptides is made with 100% hydrolyzed collagen peptides. It’s pure protein, and free from sugar, preservatives, artificial sweeteners or any added ingredients! Further Food Collagen Peptides should be stored at room temperature.

8. Is Collagen the same as gelatin?

No. Collagen and gelatin are both sourced from cartilage and have the same makeup of amino acids, but gelatin undergoes more extensive processing which decreases its bioavailability. Further Food Collagen Peptides helps our body to repair and replenish cells in a more effective and beneficial way than gelatin.

9. Can children use Further Food Collagen Peptides?

Yes. Further Food Collagen Peptides is tasteless and odorless, which makes it great for picky eaters. Further Food Collagen Peptides is a clean, pure protein powder without any sugar or preservatives, so parents can boost a child’s nutrition and protein intake without any harmful additives or ingredients.

10. Can diabetics use Further Food Collagen Peptides?

Absolutely! In fact, taking collagen is even more important for people with diabetes! Diabetics have high blood sugar levels which can cause breakdown of collagen through a process called glycation. This leads to faster aging and increases their need for collagen supplementation.

    Can you take the Collagen peptides instead of meat?

    I know it’s a crazy question but, can you just take collagen instead of eating meat?

    Reply
    1. Recipe Team

      One serving of collagen peptides contains 7 grams of protein and 18 amino acids, including 8 essential amino acids. Thus collagen can provide a source of protein in your diet. Whether you eat meat or not is a personal choice, but as long as you are getting enough protein from collagen, fish or plant based proteins such as beans and legumes, you do not need to eat meat.

    It is another brand. And im taking one scoop (which is 3 gms according to their recommended dose) daily with water on an empty stomach before breakfast. It is a hydrolyzed marine collagen powder.
    I was first taking it in pills form for a month (another brand) which was fish and hyaluronic acid, and I took two pills twice a day daily (so 4 pills in total) and then the next month I started using a powder from another brand. But throughout taking fish collagen in general from any brand im having those side effects.

    Hi Ive been taking fish collagen for a month and a half now and Ive noticed these side effects: Constant bloating, trapped gas, nausea like feeling and uneasiness, slight constipation. Can I take Collagen every alternate day or reduce the amount by half? Does anyone else have these side effects? Is it normal? My stomach is constantly bloated.

    Reply
    1. Recipe Team

      Hi Linah: How much fish collagen are you taking and is it Further Food Marine Collagen? We recommend taking collagen with food to avoid any stomach upset. Additionally, our recommended dose is one to two scoops a day. With this dosage, we have not received such reports of side effects. Keep us updated.

      Hi Lilly: Since we lose collagen every year, it can be helpful to supplement with collagen daily. Collagen peptides may help strengthen your bones and joints, along with several other benefits. We recommend one-two scoops a day. Good luck!

    Hi. I have been taking collagen peptide powder for 6 days now and the reason was to improve my skin and overall health such as hair and nails etc. I take vitamin D3, Omega 3-6-9 daily and I don’t eat sugar or refined carbs because I had hormonal acne. This daily routine improved my skin amazingly. But since I started with the collagen powder, I started breaking out again. Is this part of a detox or is it clashing with my other vitamins? Please help!

    Reply
    1. Recipe Team

      Hi Melissa: Typically collagen powder helps to reduce acne, not cause breakouts. However, everyone is different. We suggest you stop taking the collagen for a few days to see if there is any improvement. Then you can retry taking the collagen at a different time than the other vitamins. If you have any more issues, feel free to contact customer service at hello@furtherfood.com

    I took 2 Tablespoons of Bullet powdered collagen supplement once a day for 6 days then got hives. I’ve stopped for 2 days and the hives are going away slowly (with benadryl). I was beginning to experience a lessening of muscle pain on the supplement and don’t want to give up on the concept. I’m considering going back on it after the hives are gone completely. What’s the chance that the collagen caused the hives? Could it be just this brand that doesn’t agree with me? I contacted the company and they suggest I stop taking the supplement immediately which I had already done. I’ve been on Weight Watchers and eat a lot of fruit and eggs as well. I have no known allergies but I understand an overabundance of just about anything can cause a reaction.

    Can you help me with this?

      Hi Lauren: You are certainly welcome to try our collagen-every collagen powder can be different. We have not heard of many people suffering hives after taking our collagen. Obviously if you experience any symptoms, you should stop immediately. Good luck.

    Hi, I just started taking Bovine Collagen a few days ago. A couple questions…..
    1. Can I eliminate some of the supplements I’m taking now? (Buffered Ascorbic Acid, Omega 3s, Calcium, Probiotic)
    2. Typically, how long should I continue taking my Hypothyroid medication.
    3. Has Bovine Collagen ever been known to help hot flashes, and other menopausal symptoms.

    Thanks!

    1. Recipe Team

      Hi Michelle: Thanks for the questions. Collagen can be taken in conjunction with other supplements and medications. We recommend you check with your medical care provider to determine what works best for your personal medical situation. Bovine collagen has many health benefits-while it does not specifically help with hot flashes, collagen may provide other benefits that may relieve menopausal symptoms.

    I have taken one scoop of Furthur Food collagen for 8 weeks. I have not seen any benefits from this e.g. help with digestion, skin health, growing in new hair, nails harder and stronger and most of all, decrease of joint pain & swelling. Is this just not working for me or should I take two scoops a day? Also, I am on three medications; would this impact benefits of collagen consumption? Is there a specific time of day I should take it? Is it better with food or without food? Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thank you!

      Hi Jane: Thanks for the question. Sometimes it takes longer or higher doses are needed to feel the health benefits of collagen peptides. We recommend adding another scoop to your daily diet to see if that causes improvements in the next few weeks. As far as your other medications, it is best to check with your medical provider to see if they can impact collagen absorption. Good luck!

    Why is it recommended that supplementation with Type II collagen be taken separately from Types I and III? How much time should pass between taking Type II and Types I & III?

    Reply
    1. Recipe Team

      Type 11 needs to be taken separately from Type 1 and 111 to ensure adequate absorption of all types of collagen. One suggestion is to take one in the morning and the other at night.

    A friend of mine says only take two collagen tablets which would be 2 grams per day instead of 6 or more that are suggested by other websites depending on how much collagen you need. I have pretty good Vision even though I wear glasses but I can look at people and tell you which ones need more collagen than others do. I think he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. I know you need to take collagen on an empty stomach because you want it absorb through the lining of your stomach into your bloodstream instead of going through your digestive tract. I am taking 6 grams of collagen a day and he says I’m crazy basically because the manufacturer just wants to sell more collagen. that is his theory.
    Taking two grams of collagen a day would be like treading water just to the point where your nose is above water where you can just breathe but yeah you’re living but barely. If my thinking is all wrong correct me but I seriously doubt that I’m wrong.

    Hello,
    Is it okay to consume 40-50 grams of collagen per day?
    Would that cause any health concerns?
    Do you need hyaluronic acid and vitamin c for collagen to be effective?…and how much?
    Thank You

      Hi Rita: We recommend 1-2 scoops of our Further Food Collagen Peptides per day-each scoop has 8 grams of collagen, meaning 16 grams a day. Vitamin C can help promote absorption of collagen. Good luck!

    It is published that collagen peptide is diuretic. So when it is taken in the evening it increases urine outflow in the night disrupting sleep . Is it true.So is it possible to take 30grams of peptide in the evening

    Reply
    1. Recipe Team

      Thanks for the question. Our collagen peptides contain 8g of collagen per serving. We recommend 1-2 servings a day, which totals 16g per day. Collagen peptides provide a lot of benefits to the gut, including with digestion and to help repair leaky gut. Further Food Collagen has not been reported as disrupting sleep or as a diuretic.

      Hi Ruth: Congrats on your healthy workout journey. Adding collagen peptides into your diet can provide a healthy dose of protein that will help keep you full longer and can help with post workout recovery. Collagen is used safely by many people with various autoimmune and other health conditions, however we recommend you consult with your doctor for any specific medical advice pertaining to your condition.

      Hi Sara: Thanks for the question. Yes, you can definitely store in fridge without any effect on nutritional benefit. We’ve never tried freezing the Collagen, but again it shouldn’t affect the nutritional value.

      Hi Bo: Further Food has a marine collagen, made out of wild codfish. This is a great choice for vegetarians/pescetarians. Otherwise, there is no vegan options for collagen.
