Does collagen help your gut?

We have so many customers who take collagen for gut health! Whether it’s to support general wellbeing and encourage a strong immunity or to deal with serious conditions such as colitis, our loyal customers know that collagen is good for gut health. Why? Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It plays a vital role in building and maintaining everything from our hair, skin and nails to our muscles, tendons and - you guessed it - gut. 

Leaky gut syndrome occurs when the intestinal wall becomes porous, allowing toxins to leak into the bloodstream triggering an auto-immune system defence. It can also see quality nutrients leak, resulting in a compromised intake of vitamins and minerals. This, in turn, compromises good health and can lead to nutritional deficiencies, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, skin problems, headaches and more. 

We specifically developed Digestive Enzyme powder to serve as collagen for gut repair. Not only does it contain 100% pure hydrolysed bovine collagen, but it has 15 other gut-loving do-gooder super nutrients renowned for supporting gut health and digestion. Our customers take collagen for their gut lining to encourage its maintenance and integrity. 

So, what are the benefits of collagen for gut health? Increasingly, science tells us that the link between our gut and overall health and wellbeing is significant and that when we have a happy belly, the rest of the body (and mind) is typically also in good running order. Everything from physical comfort (say goodbye to bloating and regular bouts of gas!) to energy levels to the quality of our appearance can all link back to the gut.

Can you absorb collagen through the gut?

So many of our customers take our collagen peptides for gut health. However, in recent times, there has been a lot of misinformation circulating about which forms of protein offer the best collagen absorption.  Indeed, we’ve even had a good belly laugh at some people (who should know better!) suggesting that stomach acid compromises the absorption of collagen. This is BS, and we encourage you to contact us if you’d like to have a chat and find out more about the truth. 

The first fact to understand is that Edible Health collagen is not digested - and therefore not absorbed - in the stomach. Our hydrolyzed collagen absorption takes place in the small intestine after travelling through the stomach. Our manufacturer’s testing has confirmed that no collagen degradation occurs in the stomach. Instead, when the hydrolyzed collagen peptides reach the small intestine, the collagen peptides are either absorbed directly into the blood (as proven by blood test) and/or digestive acids break these longer chains of protein molecules into shorter peptides and individual amino acids. 

What does this mean? It means the collagen molecules are smaller and, therefore, even more easily absorbed into the body. This makes them more effective, which, in turn, gives you better results! If you want to take a collagen supplement for gut health, we have some great products to select. Of course, our Edible Health Bovine Collagen and Edible Health Marine Collagen powders are our most-loved products. However, you can't beat Digestive Enzyme Collagen for the best prebiotic collagen protein for gut health. Packed with 15 super nutrients and 100% pure bovine powder, this tub of goodness is your highway to a happy belly!

How long does it take collagen to heal leaky gut?

If you’re searching for supplements for leaky gut, your mission is complete! You’ve arrived exactly where you need to be. Given you want to heal a leaky gut, then we will assume you already know about this syndrome. However, you can always refer to our leaky gut blog article for more details. In the meantime, for the best collagen gut repair, you’ll want to try our Digestive Enzyme Collagen. It contains not only 100% pure hydrolysed bovine collagen powder but also 15 other super nutrients chosen and renowned for healing leaky gut.

Once you start taking it, how long before your leaky gut repairs? The answer is - everybody is different. It’s important to understand that your body will decide how to ultimately use the collagen you ingest. So, you may take our Digestive Enzyme Collagen for leaky gut treatment but find that other parts of your body (perhaps your hair, skin or nails?) are benefiting faster. Your body decides - not you, not us. When it comes to healing, your body needs time. Assuming your collagen daily intake is as per our serving suggestions, many customers begin to notice results after one month. That said, some report that it takes less time and others that it takes more. But they all said that consistency and persistence are key. So stick with it, and feel free to contact us at any point!
