Collagen Hydrolysate - Grass Fed Beef - 500 grams


Collagen hydrolysate

Collagen is the ultimate nutricosmetic supplement for your skin, hair and nails! Over 70% of the proteins in your skin consist of collagen. But collagen is not limited to the outside of the body.

Collagen is found almost everywhere in the body. It is also the "cellular glue" that helps hold together all the connective tissue in your body. Collagen provides the structure for your bones, muscles, tendons, joint cartilage, hair and internal organs, including the entire digestive system.

So collagen plays a crucial role not only in your appearance, but also in how you feel and ultimately how well your body functions in general. but it is most abundant in skin, bones, tendons and ligaments. It holds all our tissues together and provides the skeleton with a strong but flexible structure. Collagen ingested through food or supplements increases your body's own collagen supply.

Maintaining good levels and an adequate daily intake of collagen is an interesting part of the nurturing diet that the body is used to in evolution.

Why do you need collagen?

  1. Like all other tissues in your body such as muscles, bones and even your brain, the collagen in your body needs input from the environment and nutrition for its function and quality.  

  2. By the time you are 40, your body's ability to produce its own collagen drops about 25%. By the age of 60, your production is well over half of youthful levels. Contrary to wisdom, time is not on your side when it comes to collagen. By taking collagen you are supporting the body's own collagen network. 

  3. Collagen is needed to balance the modern diet. Today, almost only lean muscle meat is eaten. Lean muscle meat is high in the amino acid L-methionine and very low in the amino acid glycine. Collagen is the opposite; low in L-methionine and high in Glycine. 

Upgrade yourself from the inside

Increasing your collagen intake can be done in several ways, for example by consuming bone broth, stews and the stiffer cuts of meat. You can also use a high-quality collagen hydrolysate powder from grass-fed pasture-raised cattle. The latter option is a very convenient and practical way to supplement your diet with this nutritious and unique composition of important amino acids. By taking collagenyou are supporting the body's own collagen network.

Glycine, lysine & (hydroxy)proline

Collagen does not contain all the essential amino acids, which makes it an incomplete protein. However, the amino acids it does contain are particularly important, especially glycine. Other important amino acids are glutamine, lysine and (hydroxy)proline. The amino acid profile of collagen differs significantly from the amino acid profile of lean meat: these profiles are truly complementary and actually balance each other out. Probably exactly as nature intended! Unlike collagen, muscle meat contains high levels of L-methionine and low levels of glycine. A good balance between these two amino acids seems to be particularly important for health and longevity.

Paleo and keto approved

Collagen hydrolysate is made with paleo-approved ingredients from paleo-responsible sources. It also fits perfectly into a ketogenic diet because collagen hydrolysate contains 0 grams of sugars. With the acclaimed nutritional value of European grass-fed cattle, the powder is not only nutritious but also convenient to use. Maintaining your own collagen networks has never been easier in a paleo responsible way. Collagen hydrolysate is also easily digested and quickly absorbed.

100% European origin

Collagen peptides are made from grass-fed European pasture cows. During the winter months, the cows are housed indoors. Here they are still given natural and nutritious grass in the form of silage (fermented grass) or hay. Supplementary feed concentrates are used as little as possible and only when absolutely necessary to maintain optimum animal health. Responsible sourcing of our collagen in Europe increases sustainability. Paleo Powders collagen is the best choice in terms of quality, sustainability and environmental philosophy! Unlike intensive bio-industry collagen or collagen from America or Asia.

Made of nutritious bones

Our collagen is made from high-quality beef bones, which are naturally and gently hydrolysed by enzymes. This gives the peptides a low molecular weight of 3-6 kDa. The taste is very neutral, making it an ideal ingredient for shakes, smoothies and even recipes. Due to the low molecular weight, the collagen peptides are absorbed effectively and quickly. With over 95% protein per dose, this dietary supplement is as pure and high quality as it gets.

Quality is important

Collagen powders do not all have the same quality. In 2020, the Clean Label Project analysed 30 collagen products for the heavy metals arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury. The report showed that 100% of the collagen supplements tested had mercury levels within safe food standards. However, 34% contained low measurable concentrations. However, 37% tested positive for high levels of lead and 17% positive for high levels of cadmium.

Animal-friendly and sustainable procurement solves many of these problems. The report mentioned emphasises that heavy metal contamination is a by-product of concentrated animal feed and animal processing. Fortunately, we choose only European grass-fed and pasture-raised sources for our collagen hydrolysate. Another factor that the report says contributes to heavy metal contamination is air pollution. This is unfortunately a fact of life in the modern world, but can be solved with the right processing technologies.

Tested for heavy metals

Quality control, product safety and transparency are very important to us. Therefore, we thoroughly screen every analysis certificate and all new batches are double-analysed in an independent laboratory. This is how we ensure quality! The typical values of heavy metals in our collagen hydrolysate:

  • Arseen (As) < 0,10 mg/kg = < 0,1 PPM
  • Cadmium (Cd) < 0,01 mg/kg = < 0,01 PPM
  • Lood (Pb) < 0,05 mg/kg = < 0,05 PPM
  • Kwik (Hg) < 0,005 mg/kg = < 0,005 PPM

Primal background

Our hunter-gatherer ancestors, and even many generations after them, ate much more collagen than we do today. This was due to their heavy dependence on animal food. They always ate the animal from nose to tail: they consumed the whole animal. Including skin, tendons and other gelatinous parts. Sea or land animals or a combination of both: eating from nose to tail was the norm!

Migration: more carnivorous food

It is known that when the hunter-gatherers moved north from the equator, they could eat fewer plants. The colder it got, the fewer plants grew naturally. Since plant food decreases significantly with increasing latitude, this was compensated by animal food. Prehistoric hunter-gatherer groups generally obtained about 50% of their nutrition from animal sources. Modern hunter-gatherer societies get about 60% of their nutrition from animal sources.

Nose-to-tail concept

In prehistoric times, eating only lean muscle meat, without the fats, organs, glands and collagen tissues, would not have been enough to thrive, or even survive. A significant proportion of animal food sources would have provided nutrient-rich and collagen-rich tissues. In the modern world, we generally eat mostly lean muscle meat. We gave up eating nose-to-tail decades ago. Collagen-rich meat or tough meat or other animal parts are not preferred today over the more lean and tender meat.

So the difference between historical and modern daily collagen consumption is striking. Vegetarians and vegans tend to consume even less collagen than they already do. From a paleo perspective, which promotes the nose-to-tail eating concept, it is important to eat enough collagen.

Fascinating collagen dynamics

Collagen maintenance and quality depend not only on an adequate daily diet, but also on mechanical stress on the body, such as sports and exercise. Collagen can rapidly change its crystallinity in response to physical forces. For example, the crystallinity and arrangement of collagen molecules in the cartilage in your knees changes with every step you take. The changing mechanical load on each knee during a step causes the structural state of the collagen to change. The saying "Use it or lose it" applies not only to muscles and bones but also to collagen tissue. If you do not load your tissues sufficiently with the right stimuli, they lose quality and functionality! Many and varied movements are part of our human heritage. Fortunately, it is an integral part of a paleo lifestyle.

Synergy between collagen & water

Water is another important paleolithic factor relevant to your collagen. After water, collagen is the most abundant substance in your body. In a natural state, 60% of the weight of collagen is water. Water is thus an integral part of collagen. Water molecules can attach themselves firmly to collagen and follow the helix shape neatly and orderly. The complex dynamics of water molecules in hydrated collagen tissue play an important role in determining its structural and functional properties. In other words, good hydration is important for your collagen. Therefore, take good care of the functioning of your mitochondria and drink enough pure water every day. Alongside exercise and diet, this should be at the top of everyone's list when it comes to collagen health and function.

Hierarchy of health factors

Of course, sleep, earthing and sensible sunlight exposure are also critical factors supporting healthy collagen levels and collagen function throughout the body. Sleep provides a longer period of recovery, while sunlight provides red and near-infrared light, especially around sunrise and sunset. Earthing, barefoot contact with the earth, supplies the connective tissue matrix with electrons from the earth.

The most common protein

Did you know that there are many types of "most common" proteins in nature? Collagen, for example, is the most common protein in the animal kingdom. There are at least 16 types of collagen, but 80-90% of collagen in the body is of types I, II and III. Actin is the most abundant protein in most eukaryotic cells. It is highly conserved and participates in more protein-protein interactions than any other known protein. These properties make actin a critical player in many cellular functions. In the plant kingdom, we find RuBisCO (ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase-oxygenase). It is considered the most abundant protein in the world because it is present in every plant that undergoes photosynthesis and molecular synthesis during the Calvin cycle. It has been calculated that rubisco makes up 20-25% of the soluble protein in leaves. It is produced at a rate of about 1000 kg/s on Earth.
