When it comes to the best way to take collagen, we believe the answer lies firmly in powder. How you then choose to take your collagen powder is a whole other exciting story!
However, before we regale you with delicious, nutritious and mouth-watering collagen powder recipes, let’s firstly explore why this form is the most effective way to take collagen.
Saves you money and lasts longer
Our pure collagen powders comprise 100 percent hydrolysed collagen. This means that when you take the recommended daily serving of 13,000mg (13 grams or approximately 1-2 tablespoons) you are getting collagen, and only collagen. On the basis that liquids and shots typically only contain 5,000-8,000mg of collagen, capsules are rarely more than 1,000mg, and gummies are often around 750mg, you may get anything from half to up to 17 times LESS the amount of collagen per serving than you would from our powder. Now that’s a hell of a lot less bang for your collagen buck!
Also, if you follow our 13 grams per day recommendation, then one of our 400g tubs will last you a whole month. This is in stark contrast with a single purchase of liquid collagen sachets or shots which will normally only tide you over for 10-14 days. Sure, pills and gummies may last longer - sometimes 60 or 90 days - but, as already mentioned, with 15-17 times less collagen, they work out as an extremely low serve for an exceedingly high price per gram. Plus, they’re often full of nasties and additives to get them into pills, capsules or gummy format.

Natural ingredients and certified
All our collagen products use only natural ingredients. In the case of our Bovine and Marine powders, we use only 100 percent sustainably sourced collagen from cow hides and fish skin respectively. When it comes to our premium blends like Digestive Enzyme Collagen, Anti-Ageing and Collagen Creamer, again we only include pure goodness. You won’t find any GMO, BSE, gluten, whey, dairy, soy, sugar, nuts, pesticides, heavy metals, steroids, antibiotics or hormones in any of our collagen supplements. Moreover, all of our products are Halal and Kosher certified, WADA compliant and, being carb-free and sugar-free are suitable for Keto, Paleo and Whole30 lifestyles, not to mention intermittent fasting and detoxing!
The best way to take our collagen powders
When it comes to the most efficient way to take our collagen powders, there is a key difference depending on the product you have. If you have selected our plain bovine or marine collagen, then you have total flexibility. You can easily stir, shake or mix the product into any desired hot or cold food and drink. It will dissolve beautifully and quickly and has minimal taste or smell so is completely versatile.
When it comes to our blends, such as Digestive Enzyme Collagen and Anti-Ageing, we recommend you take an additional step. Firstly, stir your powder into a fatty liquid such as milk or oil. Stir vigorously into a smooth paste and then add this into your food or drink. Because these blends are packed with a vast array of super nutrients, some of which are only fat soluble, these blends won’t dissolve as easily as our plain collagen products. However, the added health kicks are worth that small effort and the all-natural, freeze dried pineapple (in our Digestive Enzyme Collagen) and raspberry citrus (in our Anti-Ageing) will funk up the flavour of smoothies, bowls, yoghurts, ice cream, porridge and puds!
The best way to take collagen is to be creative!
Why stick to the same recipe and the same routine, when your Edible Health collagen can be turned into absolute taste sensations?
