Collagen has a unique composition and a specific role in the human body. Collagen proteins have a high content of glycine and proline, and accounts for a large portion of bones, skin, muscles, and tendons. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, accounting for about one-third of the body's total protein.†
The collagen present in the human body has a very similar amino acid and peptide composition to collagen supplements, which makes them very sufficient for supporting body collagen renewal. Max Collagen supplies the body with 12.5g of bovine collagen peptides from Fortigel®, Verisol® and Fortibone®, which are highly-researched and produced with proprietary hydrolyzation technologies.†
Bones, joints, and skin play a role in so many functions of the body. Physical damage, nutrient deficiencies, and the aging process all contribute to a loss of structure in skin, bones, and joints. Because of this, Max Collagen powder is a powerful blend of nutrients formulated to supply the body with a structurally similar amino acid and peptide composition to the human body’s collagen.†

|Max Collagen contains 12.5g of collagen from Fortigel®, Verisol® and Fortibone®†.||Delivered in low amounts, has low bioavailability, or in combination with other elements.|
|Unflavored, in an easy-to-use powder that can be added to smoothies, protein powders, or foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, soups, and sauces†.||Flavored, therefore more limited in use, and in a conventional powdered or gummy form with added sugars and colors.|
|Fortigel®, Verisol® and Fortibone® are derived from dietary collagen protein and produced with proprietary hydrolyzation technologies in order to optimize their beneficial properties†.||Cannot all be assumed to have the same efficacy, due to different amino acid and peptide profiles.|

Collagen is the most abundant protein in humans. It makes up about one-third of the total protein content in our body. Typically, as people age, collagen production declines. Additionally, many elderly people do not consume enough protein in their diet, which can adversely affect bone and joint health.†
Supplementation with Max Collagen supplies the body with a form of collagen that is very similar to the collagen in the human body. The collagen peptides are formulated from Fortigel®, Verisol® and Fortibone®, which are dietary collagen protein and produced with proprietary hydrolyzation to optimize beneficial properties.†
- Fortibone® has the potential to improve mineral density and the organic content of bones. Both of these aspects of bone quality contribute to the demonstrated reduction of fracture rate.
- One study on 131 postmenopausal women with reduction in bone mineral density showed that supplementation with Fortibone® imroved bone mineral density in the spine and neck.
- Fortigel® is designed to improve collagen production in joints. This can help to reduce joint pain and improve osteoarthritis.
- One study stated that after 12 weeks, 5g of supplementation with Fortigel® significantly reduced joint pain in the knees of young athletes.
- Verisol® is designed to support synthesis of collagen in the dermal layer of the skin. One study demonstrated that Verisol® supplementation increased skin elasticity by up to 15%.
- Another study on 114 women between the ages of 45-65 stated that the consumption of 2.5g of Verisol® dramatically reduced skin wrinkles compared to a placebo.
As with any dietary supplement, consult your healthcare practitioner before using this product, especially if you are pregnant, nursing, anticipating surgery, take medication on a regular basis or are otherwise under medical supervision.

What does Max Collagen taste like?
Max Collagen is unflavored. It has a neutral taste, and can be conveniently added to many foods or beverages of choice.
What type of collagen is included in Max Collagen?
Max Collagen contains a unique blend of three patented collagen peptides. Our Type 1 collagen supports collagen production, bone density, skin elasticity, and joint and tissue health and function.
Can I get sufficient amounts of collagen from food?
Even among those with a higher protein intake, unless nose-to-tail eating is emphasized, the richest sources of collagen, which are animal skins, bone broth, and tendons, are not typically part of the modern Western diet. Because of this, supplementation is often beneficial.
Flavorless and mixes well with drinks. Love this product.
This product is the best I have ever tried! Seen results within 1 week of using
Excellent product. Have been using this for years.
Blended well in smoothies and did not cause any taste change or texture change. So far so good.
I really like the flavor and it is really filling.
