Absolute Collagen - the best collagen supplement in the world?
September 27, 2018
ABSOLUTE COLLAGEN HAD ONE MISSION: TO CREATE A DAILY DOSE OF BEAUTY FOR THE LADIES AND YOUR DAILY SKINCARE RITUAL FOR THE GUYS, ENSURING MAXIMUM BENEFITS IN THE MOST CONVENIENT AND COST-EFFECTIVE WAY.
The brain-child of Maxine Laceby, Absolute Collagen was created quite by accident after she sought natural remedies for arthritis.
After boiling up pigs trotters and chicken feet in her kitchen, Maxine realised that a good quality, hydrolysed marine collagen supplement was far superior than homemade bone broths.
This is because although gelatin (the collagen substance emitted when collecting bone broth) is moderately bioavailable, it is not as bioactive as collagen peptides - which are formed when the gelatin is broken down further and creates a lower molecular weight which is absorbed directly into the bloodstream.
Gelatin is obtained by the partial hydrolysis of collagen. This is when collagen triple helices are broken down to the point where they have pulled apart into individual strands. It’s molecular weight means it is only partially absorbed into the bloodstream.
Maxine realised this and started to research the most bioavailable, best quality and most effective collagen to use - and discovered it is Type 1 marine collagen peptides.
Collagen peptides have a molecular weight of less than 5000Da. They are soluble in cold water, highly digestible and ready to be absorbed by our bodies. So that’s exactly what Maxine decided to base her Daily Dose of Beauty and Daily Skincare Ritual (for the guys) around.
Drinkable skincare. Our formula contains the most collagen in the smallest ready mixed dose at the lowest possible price with the minimum amount of fuss.
Absolute Collagen is a powerful anti-ageing liquid collagen supplement that fights against the visible signs of ageing. In the arena of ingestible beauty products, collagen has long been recognised as the star player.
Research shows that collagen is fast becoming the leading functional ingredient of ingestible beauty supplements in all regions of the world - and by 2023 it is predicted that everyone will be ingesting collagen.
The team at Absolute Collagen have worked closely with experienced partners investing time researching, trialling and testing Absolute Collagen’s liquid supplement.
Following the successful launch of our women’s flagship product in May 2017; We realised with the growth in the male grooming sector there was a gap in the market for the first ingestible men’s beauty product.
In August 2017 the Stud Box for men’s Daily Skincare Ritual was born - and has proven to be a huge success.
Absolute Collagen’s unique anti-ageing formula provides you with the highest concentrated dose of premium peptide Peptan® f2000 hydrolysed marine collagen in the most convenient way.
Each 10ml sachet contains 8000mg (8 grams) of hydrolysed marine peptide collagen.
Our advanced formula is also infused with vitamin C, which works synergistically with marine collagen for optimum skin rejuvenation and tissue renewal. Taking Absolute Collagen supplement as your Daily Dose of Beauty and Daily Skincare Ritual ensures you give your skin, hair, joints and nails the best chance possible.
It was important to Maxine that Absolute Collagen remained as absolute as possible, collagen and very little else. Each daily 10ml liquid supplement contains 8,000mg (8 grams) of collagen, Vitamin C, natural stevia sweetener and lemon flavouring. Each serving has just 32 calories and is high in protein.
Absolute Collagen is completely natural and does not contain bovine or porcine products, hormones, genetically modified organisms (gmos). It is also manufactured in the UK under BRC accredited facilities.
So why do we think Absolute Collagen is the best collagen drink in the world?
- We use the finest type 1 marine collagen peptides - the good stuff. Fish collagen is absorbed up to 1.5 times more efficiently into the body and has superior bioavailability over bovine, porcine and fowl collagens. This is due to their smaller particle size.
- It is important to know before you buy collagen that only around 7.5 grams of collagen can be absorbed and used effectively by the human body at any one time. This means that your one dose should not contain more than 8 grams of collagen as it’s essentially waste. You can take more than 8 grams of collagen in one day, ie: over a 24-hour period, but only consume 8 grams at any one time and space doses by several hours.
- The high amount of small peptides of hydrolysed collagen in liquid form absorbs better into the bloodstream when compared to powders or tablets. In fact - it’s around 90%+ absorption for liquid - compared to just 65% tablet form. Additionally, liquid formulas are kinder to the lining of the stomach and contain no plastic casings or binders. Absolute Collagen is a ready-mixed, pure liquid, ready to take 8 gram marine collagen shot.
- In order to perform at it’s best, collagen requires the presence of Vitamin C which works synergistically with collagen in the absorption process for optimum skin rejuvenation and tissue renewal. Collagen is also naturally quite a bitter tasting substance, so a natural sweetener and some flavouring is pretty important too! Anything else is merely a by-product and won’t affect the way in which the collagen works.
- You can take and go! As we have already mentioned - liquid form collagen is far superior to tablet or powder form. Additionally - some collagen supplements are designed to be mixed with other liquids before taking. Absolute Collagen’s handy, ready-to-use 10ml sachets take the hassle out of collagen supplementation - you simply twist off the top - take, and go!
- We remain as cost-effective as possible. You can take Absolute Collagen from as little as £1.92 per day!
And the results speak for themselves. Here are just a few quotes from our real life customers:
“I was sceptical but thought I would give it a go. I am really impressed and pleased with the results. My hair which is over processed and subjected to daily straightening has never been in such good condition. My eyelashes and eyebrows have grown and the appearance of my skin improved. It is really easy to take at home or on holiday. So pleased I took the plunge to become the better version of me!” - Alison Thomas
“I think it does work. I’m on month two and have just received my six month supply. My hair is shiny and my skin doesn’t feel as dry and my joints don’t ache after Zumba. My nails seem stronger too. If nothing else, I’m happy if it just works for my joints. I would be gutted if I could not do Zumba and Sh’Bam anymore. I’m 60. I would also add that I took a really well known brand of tablets for a few years but decided I needed something cheaper. I have seen more of a difference with this.” - Tracy Duggan
“Just for the record I’ve always kept my hair really short and recently decided to grow it. I’m 47 now and unfortunately when it started getting longer it was definitely a bit thinner than before. I was gutted, put it down to my age. Since taking your product I swear to you it’s come back thick! How’s that for an endorsement!! I can ACTUALLY take my hat off to you guys. (excuse the pun!)” - Jason S
“Loving Absolute, face just after 4 days started to feel firmer and plumper. Now 28 days in and just ordered my 3rd 14 day pack and my nails are stronger and growing faster, even though I nibble my nails I’m hopeful I can now grow them. Hair is feeling thicker and is looking shinier and hoping it will now grow past the shoulders. Skin feels plumper and firmer and so does the neck and any wrinkles feel softer. Ski knee aches have diminished and don’t even notice them anymore. You don’t feel the need to seek out expensive moisturisers and serums and feel Maxine as found something that does work from the inside out. It has now become part of my routine and the gel is a strange consistency but is fine tasting - a bit like energy gels. All I can say is given it a try and see if it works for you but I am sure I would see a difference now if I stopped taking them.” - Beverley Phillips.
