Mammoth Super 7 Collagen
1/3 of the protein in the human body is collagen and collagen levels start to drop after the age of 20. Our diets do not contain collagen rich foods (skin, tendons, cartiladge) Collagen is the connective tissue throughout our body, most noticeably in the face. Collagen’s function is to support and strengthen tendons, joints, skin, muscles, bones and internal organs.
Mammoth HYDROLYZED COLLAGEN Formula
Why? - Hydrolyzation breaks down collagen into small molecular fragments to enhance aborption.
The benefits of both Marine and Bovine Collagen: combining marine and bovine collagen provides you with the increased bioavailability of type I collagen (most prevalent in our bodies and found in skin, tendons, ligaments, vasular tissue, organs and bones) and type III collagen (the 2nd most prevelant and found in muscles, blood vessels, intestines and skin) Vitamin C is absolutely essential for synthesis of collagen; the amino acids in collagen will not from collagen in the absence of vitamin C.

What is collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and is a key component of all connective tissues. Collagen is the vital building block of our bodies and is found primarily in our skin, hair, nails, bones and joints. Our diets today contain minimal collagen and our collagen production declines 1% per year after age 25; however, our need for it only increases with time.
What does collagen do? Why is it important?:
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. It is integral to the structure of tendons (muscles), ligaments, fascia, bones, skin, blood vessels, hair, and nails. The collagen in our skin provides it with structure, helping it to remain plump and firm. It is important because insufficient collagen leads to weakness, pain, joint issues, cellulite, weakness, and the inability to heal wounds and other injuries.
What can I expect if I am collagen deficient?
Insufficient collagen leads to pain, weakness, joint issues, wrinkles, cellulite, and the inability to heal wounds and other injuries.
What is the difference between hydrolyzed collagen and collagen peptides?
There is no difference. Collagen supplements are labeled as “hydrolyzed collagen” or “collagen peptides,” but they are the same.
Who needs collagen supplements?
Expert opinions may vary, however, almost everyone could benefit from additional collagen. Our diets today contain minimal collagen and our collagen production declines 1% per year after we reach age 25; however, our need for it only increases with time.
Do I have to supplement collagen if I’m getting adequate protein? Can I get it from my diet?
If you’re not eating ‘nose-to-tail’ you probably want to supplement. Pure collagen is very difficult to source in our diets. Even if you are eating a lot of protein, most people do not eat bones, skin, and connective tissues, which are the parts of animal that contain collagen. If you are eating primarily a plant based diet, you would be an ideal candidate for Super7 Collagen supplementation. Over and above the fact that most don’t eat this way, the % of collagen in your body is constantly declining with age.
Are there any side effects to taking Collagen? Are there risks associated with taking collagen peptides?
Collagen peptide supplementation (aka hydrolyzed collagen) is generally regarded as safe. If you have specific concerns about contraindications or potential personal dietary issues please consult your licensed healthcare professional.
Where should I store collagen?
Store Super7 Collagen in a cool, dark area away from moisture.
How long should I take collagen?
Collagen begins restoring and repairing skin, bones, joints, ligaments and your gut within a short amount of time. Clinical trials have shown improvements after four to eight weeks of supplementation. However, one should consider taking Super7 Collagen indefinitely to combat ageing. Our body produces less and less collagen every year. Supplementing with hydrolyzed collagen is not a temporary fix, it is a lifelong dedication to better health.
What does it taste like?
Super7 Collagen is tasteless and odourless, 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, see our informational video posted on this page for helpful mixing ideas.
When can I expect to see results? How do I know if I should adjust the dose?
The answer to this question varies according to the desired outcome and from person to person. Collagen is not necessarily a fast-acting supplement. Taking Super7 Collagen on a regular basis can help to repair and restore your natural collagen levels from within. Research shows that oral collagen supplementation over 8-24 weeks supports the collagen density in the dermis and significantly increases skin hydration. Super7 Collagen begins restoring and repairing skin, bones, joints, ligaments and your gut within the same amount of time. However, one should take collagen indefinitely to combat ageing because our body produces less and less collagen every year. The longer and more consistently you take Super7 Collagen, the more you’ll see results.
Should collagen and complete protein (meat or whey) be taken separately?
There is no solid evidence to support any separation of collagen and other protein.
What is the best time of day to take collagen? Morning or night? On an empty stomach or with food?
There is not enough research to say definitively one way or another. Supplement with Super7 Collagen when it makes the most sense for you and your schedule.
Does it matter if I mix collagen in hot or cold liquid? Can hot liquid damage collagen peptides?
No studies have convincingly supported any damage to collagen at consumable high or low beverage temperatures. Take your Super7 Collagen the way you enjoy it most.
What can I do to enhance the effectiveness of collagen or make them more bioavailable?
The good news is Super7 Collagen is designed to make collagen the most effective and bioavailable - from the collagen source & type to all the specific ingredients included. Please see the educational video for why Super7 Collagen is your best source of collagen supplementation.
Are collagen peptides (aka hydrolyzed collagen) and gelatin interchangeable?
No. Collagen peptides (aka hydrolyzed collagen) are smaller and more easily absorbed. Gelatin is great in the kitchen for baking, making jello or thickening soups, it is not a good choice for collagen supplementation.
Can I Take Too Much Collagen?
How many grams of collagen should I take per day? How do I use collagen?
Studies show users should consume 10-20 grams of collagen per day for best results. There is no official recommended minimum or maximum intake of collagen. We advise that you follow the suggested dosage information on the container. If you have specific dietary concerns, please consult your GP, licensed dietitian or nutritionist.
Is collagen safe for expecting / breastfeeding mothers?
It is always recommended to talk to your licensed healthcare professional first, as nutritional needs can vary when breastfeeding or expecting mothers. However, dietary supplementation of collagen is generally recognized as safe.
Can children take collagen?
Generally speaking, Yes. It is a great source of protein with no additives or artificial ingredients. If unsure, please consult your licensed healthcare professional.
Collagen’s function is to improve the growth and repair of cartilage. Over time, cartilage wears off due to ageing and repeated movement. As a result, bones rub against each other which causes pain. Scientific research proves that supplementing with collagen will improve activity related joint pain in 24 weeks or less* Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the body and keeps our skin and joints hydrated.
