1. Pure Hydrolysed Collagen

About: ‘There’s no magic bullet, although I do admit collagen does come close. You won’t live forever but you’ll have a better quality of life and look a lot better too (on the inside and out)’ – Sally-Ann Creed.
Direction for use: 1-2 scoops (14ml scoops are placed in the bag)  can be added to your morning tea/coffee/glass of water at least an hour or more before breakfast. You can also take it between meals or last thing at night. Where possible avoid mixing it with other proteins however, if you absolutely cannot take it unless you have yogurt or something else, you will still derive benefit from it. Do not mix it with the Super CollagenT2 (chicken) type 2. If you are taking both, then take them at least 2 hours away from each other to ensure the best absorption possible.  Always increase water intake with collagen.
Can take with: L-Glutamine powder in water

2. Beauty Bullets

About: Each capsule contains 575mg pure collagen. Now you can have the choice of either powder or capsules when getting your ‘collagen fix’ daily.

These BEAUTY BULLETS are literally ‘shots’ of Pure Hydrolysed Collagen.
Direction for use: Take 5-10 Collagen Beauty Bullet Capsules 1-2 x a day with hot or cold liquid (great for travellers).

It is exactly the same excellent Pure Hydrolysed Collagen you will find under our label. In addition we have included Pure Hydrolysed Gelatine with a potent prebiotic powder to improve and promote the healthy colonic flora. The addition of hydrolysed gelatine brings the price down but the effects are the same.

They are both very successfully used in tea, coffee, food and baking, they’re heat-stable and very versatile.

It is the closest taste to sugar of all the natural keto sweeteners. Take in place of sugar one-for-one – tastes like sugar.

I hope this has cleared up any “How do I take this?” questions.
