Ok, now that we have your attention (we're cheeky like that) 😉

You probably already know that not all collagen is created equal and that you should always opt for high-quality collagen made from sustainable sources that are free of pesticides, glyphosate, hormones and GMOs. You may have even heard collagen brands talk about bioavailability — and if they don't, they should be.

The ability of collagen to work its age-defying, total-body healing magic depends largely on bioavailability.


But what does this term actually mean?


What Is Bioavailability?


Bioavailability refers to the amount of a substance that enters the circulation of your body so that it can have an active effect.


Many things affect bioavailability, ranging from your metabolism to the foods you eat when you ingest the substance to the molecular weight of the substance's particles. The less the particles weigh, the more easily absorbed they are.

It's that simple! But it can also be challenging to find quality collagen with a good molecular weight.


What's a Good Molecular Weight for Collagen?


Great question! The less weight, the better. Just don’t choose a collagen product with a reduced molecular weight at the expense of those other high-quality characteristics of good collagen that I mentioned (sustainably sourced, hormone, pesticide, and GMO-free), then aim for a less weighty option.


Our Perfect Hydrolyzed Collagen meets all the high-quality criteria and has a molecular weight of around 5,000 daltons, which makes it highly absorbable — more so than most other collagen supplements on the market.

Many other collagen supplements have higher molecular weights (anywhere from 30,000 to 150,000!), so this larger molecule is naturally harder to absorb and as a result, potentially less effective.


And with all the amazing benefits of collagen, you don't want any less efficacy.


The Benefits of Collagen Revisited


I’ve written extensively about the many benefits of collagen. This miraculous collection of 19-amino acids can improve skin health, reduce the signs of ageing, promote healthy hair, improve joint health and muscle recovery, support gut and heart health, improve mental clarity, and much more.
