Collagen for Gut / Digestion
Frequently Asked Questions
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 the building and maintenance of everything from our hair, skin and nails to our muscles, tendons and - you guessed it - gut. Leaky gut syndrome is a condition whereby the intestinal wall becomes porous, allowing toxins to leak through to 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 compromises good health and can lead to nutritional deficiencies, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, skin problems, head aches and more. We developed Digestive Enzyme Collagen powder specifically to serve as collagen for gut repair. Not only does it contain 100% pure hydrolysed bovine collagen, but a blend of 15 gut-loving do-gooder super nutrients. 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 strong. 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 find a 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 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 misinformed BS, and we encourage you to contact us if you’d like to have a chat and find out more about the facts. The first fact to understand is that Edible Health collagen is not digested - and therefore not absorbed - in the gut. Our hydrolyzed collagen absorption takes place in the small intestine after it’s travelled through the gut. Our manufacturer’s testing has confirmed that no collagen degradation occurs in the stomach. Instead, when the hydrolyzed collagen peptides reach the small intestine, digestive acids break these longer chains of protein molecules into shorter peptides and individual amino acids. What does this mean? That the collagen becomes even more easily absorbed into the body! If you want to take a collagen supplement for gut health, we have some great products to select. Of course, our pure bovine and marine powders are our most-loved products. However, you can't go past Digestive Enzyme Collagen when it comes to 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. But 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 a host of other great ingredients for healing leaky gut. So, once you start taking it, how long before your leaky gut repairs? The answer is - every body 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, a lot of our customers begin to notice results after one month. Consistency and persistence are key, so stick with it, and feel free to contact us at any point!
