Pure Pasture Raised Beef Gelatin!
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and is a key constituent of all connective tissues. Collagen provides the infrastructure of the musculoskeletal system, essential for mobility. The intake of collagen ensures the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of skin, hair, tendon, cartilage, bones, and joints.
Collagen is a natural and healthy ingredient that has been used for centuries. Collagen-rich foods are a large part of traditional diets. Our ancestors utilized whole-animal nutrition, which provided an abundant amount of collagen, the native form of gelatin. Over time, we have lost touch with this powerful, healing superfood.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How are the cattle raised?
A. The cattle graze on lush grasslands in Brazil and are not given hormones, steroids, or antibiotics. They eat their natural diet – grass, and receive plenty of open space and sunshine. We believe in providing our animals with an environment that nature intended, and the result is a high quality protein that is natural and pure.
Q. Why is collagen so important?
A. Collagen ensures the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of skin. Maintaining the proper amount of collagen is the key to beautiful skin. Glycine, proline, alanine and hydroxyproline are the main constituents of collagen; replenishing these constituent amino acids appears to be needed to maintain the amount of collagen at healthy levels. These amino acids are essential for maintaining an even skin structure and thus healthy skin. Clinical research has shown that collagen, a natural protein, also supports bones, joints and muscle tone.
Q. What is the best way to use collagen protein?
A. Collagen protein is a traditional gelatin formula, this means that it will gel in cold liquids. It is recommended to add to hot liquids, or to use in recipes that require gelatin. Combine 1-2 scoops, one to two times per day with 4 fl oz of cold liquid, add 4 fl oz of hot liquid, mix thoroughly. Drink immediately. Other suggestions include adding it to hot tea, juice, soups, or stews. It can also be used to make homemade marshmallows, fruit jello or desserts like mousse, pie or custards.
Q. What is the difference between these collagen proteins and the Vital Proteins collagen peptides?
A. Beef Gelatin Collagen Protein and Collagen Peptides both offer the same amino acids and nutritional benefit, however are slightly different in application.
Beef Gelatin Collagen Protein: The Vital Proteins collagen protein product is 100% Pasture-Raised Beef Gelatin. It will solidify or "gel" in cold liquids and as a result, it is ideal for hot beverages such as herbal tea, as well as stocks, sauces and broths. Hot liquids with collagen protein will solidify once cooled. This product can be used to make fruit gelatin, healthy gummy snacks, or added to meals as a nutritious protein booster and thickener.
Collagen Peptides: Vital Proteins peptides may be added to cold or hot beverages such as a smoothie, juice, water, tea, or coffee, as well as a variety of foods such as oatmeal and yogurt. The peptides will not "gel" in cold liquids and they do not alter the texture or thicken liquids.
