As our range of clinically proven collagen solutions expand, we are often asked: ‘Can I take more than one product?’ Or ‘Is there such a thing as too much collagen?’ The short answer is no, you can’t take too much and yes, you can take more than one product…but let us elaborate. Our original products flex+
will always remain the core formulas, that require a consistent daily dose for you to reap the benefits of supplementing with collagen. Whether it be anti-ageing or pain-free joints you’re after, we hope to give you the tools to unlocking a positive life. These unflavoured powders can be added to your coffee, post work out shakes, smoothies, yogurts…this list is endless! The newer, naturally flavoured solutions such as protect,
for the immune system, and the eagerly anticipated sleep
, for a good night’s rest, are designed to be situational ‘bolt on’ products. You can take these alongside the original products as directed when you are feeling the need to use them. As their unique peptide chain structure facilitates absorption, Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP®s) stand out from the broader class of other polypeptides. One reason being that Bioactive Collagen Peptides exhibit a high concentration of proline and glycine, amino acids which form strong peptide bonds that are more resistant to being broken down by digestive enzymes. Also, Bioactive Collagen Peptides maintain the characteristic, rare single helix structure of collagen, which is longer and thinner than the normal alfa-helix most commonly found in other protein sources. In short, this improves the stability of Bioactive Collagen Peptides and facilitates their gut absorption. As such, intact Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP®s) stimulate the target cells to produce new collagen, whereas the digested parts deliver the necessary building materials. That means that virtually all of the nutrients are used. Our Founder, Jennifer Mo takes her daily doses of flex, glow and protect as follows: Early morning: 1 scoop glow in her morning coffee with oat milk Late morning: 2 scoops of flex in post workout smoothie (check out our Get Up and Go recipe for this one!) Mid afternoon: 1 scoop of glow mixed into my hot mug of Protect If you struggle to get your doses in, we have heard through the collagen confessionals that the Collageneration are taking them together. A favourite combination is two scoops of flex+ mixed with one scoop of naturally flavoured protect and hot water…talk about the ultimate grab life by the…you know…drink!
