Is it pregnancy & breastfeeding friendly?
In saying this, it is advised on all Nutra Organics products to seek advice from your health care professional on taking Nutra Organics products if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Every pregnancy is different, taking a toll differently on each individual body in vitamin, mineral and energy requirements.
It helps to research the product to ensure you are not sensitive to any particular ingredients.
Where does the Collagen come from?
Nutra Organics proudly source all of their bovine collagen from the most reputable, sustainable and ethical manufacturer in the world. The cattle are located in both Germany and Brazil. Nutra Organics' manufacturer is the global leader for collagen manufacturing and innovation, and are the only company to have created scientifically formulated collagen peptides that are backed by multiple peer reviewed studies.
Is the collagen sustainable?
Yes! Nutra Organics is passionate about sustainability, which is another reason why they chose to partner with their Collagen manufacturer. Their manufacturer's 2019 Sustainability Report details everything from their sustainable production processes to their commitment to the highest animal welfare standards.
There are concerns that all agricultural farms in Brazil are a result of deforestation, and that the collagen industry contributes to this issue. Nutra Organics is very proud to deliver the highest quality collagen product available on the global market, and part of the criteria that assures this is the sustainable origin of their ingredients. Their Collagen is produced as a by-product of the pre-exisiting meat industry, and therefore is actually responsible for reducing a huge portion of food waste. It’s important to note that no land is cleared in the name of collagen and further, no cattle are killed to produce it directly, rather the animal hide is derived from abattoirs of the meat industry already present.
Nutra Organics certainly understand that deforestation is a global issue and have taken steps to address this through their Project Give Back and Sustainable Packaging.
What are Verisol Bioactive Peptides?
In order to explain what Verisol peptides are, first there's a need to understand what a peptide is and how it is different to just your regular hydrolyzed collagen. A peptide is essentially a chain of amino acids that are biologically active, meaning because the specific size of the chain - it will have a very specific effect within the body.
There are specific enzymes that break down each collagen peptide chains within collagen powder into different final molecular weight profiles. This results in differing remaining peptide chains within the collagen powder. The individual amino acids remain the same, but it is the length of the connected amino acid chains (peptides) and the different ends of the chains that are specific to each collagen peptide product and determine its function. Verisol® is made up of specific collagen peptide chains designed to target collagen production in skin specifically.
Why bovine collagen?
Nutra Organics thought long and hard about this one. In the end they decided on bovine collagen for the following reasons:
- Bovine hide is a by-product of an industry that is already well established, so it reduces waste, and therefore up-cycles the parts of the animal that would otherwise be disposed of.
- Traceability of bovine sourced collagen is much clearer than marine collagen (so it’s easy to ensure that the collagen comes from healthy, well cared for cows. “Marine” collagen is rarely even “marine” as it mostly comes from fish farms rather than the ocean, and our oceans are majorly over fished already as it is).
- The amount of collagen that you get from one cow is massive compared to one fish. Making it much more cost effective and affordable.
There are a lot of misconceptions about the size of collagen peptides from bovine source vs marine source. One is not “bigger” or “smaller” than the other. The size of collagen peptides relies on the hydrolysis process. This is the process where collagen fibres are broken down into small peptide chains. The collagen that Nutra Organics use has been specifically hydrolysed to be the correct size and shape for optimal absorption and utilisation by the body, specific for it’s function!
Is there a whole serve of Collagen Beauty in my bar?
The short answer is no, because eating 12 grams of collagen in a bar would taste kinda funky and the bar would not be a bar, but actually just a floppy jelly squidge wrapped beautifully in home compostable packaging.
So long answer, Nutra Organics didn’t do the full 12 grams, BUT there is still one full serve of Collagen Beauty’s Bioactive Collagen Peptides (Verisol®) in each bar. These peptides are what make Collagen Beauty so effective at targeting skin wrinkling, hydration and elasticity. Plus they’ve also made sure that there is still a good whack of Hydrolyzed Collagen in there, as the amino acids present in this kind of collagen will form the building blocks necessary for tissue structure and repair in skin. So never fear, Collagen Beauty Bars will be just as effective at combating skin aging signs as Collagen Beauty Powder.
What is Camu Camu and Orgen-Zn® Guava and why are they in my bar?
Camu Camu (Mycaria dubia) is a native Peruvian fruit grown on the banks of rivers throughout the amazon. The soil in this part of the world is fed organically by the rivers as they flood once a season to provide a plethora of nutrients. The most abundant of which is Vitamin C. Camu Camu is one of the world’s richest natural sources of Vitamin C and has been traditional utilised by occupants of the rainforest to support eye, heart and skin health as well as immunity throughout the centuries. It is now known that Vitamin C is essential to supporting collagen production in the skin. Being a whole fruit source of Vitamin C, the bioavailability (ability of the body to absorb) of this nutrient is far superior than synthetic forms found in most supplements. Further, Nutra Organics' Camu Camu is just 100 % low temperature dried Camu Camu. It is not spray dried as per conventional drying methods, meaning, it retains the highest amount of volatile nutrients that would otherwise be destroyed upon drying.
Similarly to Camu Camu, Guava is a natural plant source of zinc. Nutra Organics' Orgen-Zn® Guava is a standardised extract that provides a natural source zinc with a high bioavailability whilst also containing a wealth of other nutrients commonly found in guava such as polyphenols and flavonoids.
These natural sources of vitamins and minerals also mean that Collagen Beauty Bars are suitable for all members of the family to consume as they contain no synthetic vitamins and minerals that are otherwise synthesized in a lab.
Can I eat the bars AND have Collagen Beauty daily?
Short answer - Yes!
Long answer - Yes! Collagen Beauty bars are a great top up to your daily intake of Collagen Beauty. That said, they can also be consumed instead of Collagen Beauty if you want to choose one or the other as both contain one standardised serve of Verisol® Bioactive Peptides.
What is Nutra Organics' home compostable packaging made of?
Home compostable packaging is made from plant based materials that break down naturally and return nutrients back into the soil. Depending on the type of home compostable packaging used, the packaging will be made up of different layers to protect the product and keep it fresh:
The paper is sourced from FSC and PEFC certified pulp where suppliers operate in an environmentally, economically and socially responsible way. This is the layer where the branding and details are printed about what is inside the package.
The next layer is made of eucalyptus trees from managed plantations and have been specifically chosen for their sustainability processes - for every tree felled at least one more tree is grown. This layer stops moisture from getting into the package and ruining the product.
- Bio- Polymer
This layer is made from non-GMO natural crop offcuts from the production of sugarcane, cassava and corn and keep the product fresh.
Nutra Organics' exclusive natural adhesives used to bind the layers are from completely inert raw materials derived from plant sources and contain no eco-toxins.
Printing ink and varnish -
The printing ink and varnish range are plant based and of food grade. They are produced with no heavy metal content within the pigments.
How does home compostable packaging work?
Home compostable packaging is designed to be composted at home.
Once the contents have been finished, the empty package is placed into a home compost bin, along with other household scraps such as banana skins, egg shells or corn cobs.
The package naturally decomposes at ambient temperatures of 20-30°C, as the microorganisms in the compost bin feed on the decaying detritus.
Within 1 week, the package will start to break down naturally, just like other natural plant material.
At 26 weeks, the package will have completely decomposed. Using natural materials and non-GMO raw plant material, the end-product of this concentrated decomposition process is nutrient-rich soil that can help crops, garden plants and trees to grow.
If the packaging does enter waste collection, it will not contribute toxins to landfill.
How do I dispose of it if I don’t have a home compost?
Nutra Organics' compostable packaging is organically recyclable and is a viable alternative to petrochemical based plastic packaging that isn’t being recycled. If it is disposed of in general waste, the packaging will start to biodegrade in the presence of microbes, moisture and oxygen at ambient temperatures.
Will the packaging break down while it is in my pantry?
No, the material will only break down under specific composting conditions.
How long does it take to break down?
Less than 26 Weeks at ambient temperature at < 30c Industrial composting – Less than 12 Weeks at 60c
Is the packaging sustainable?
Yes! Nutra Organics' compostable packaging is made from renewable resources, reducing the reliance on petrochemicals. The materials used are sustainably grown eucalyptus trees, sugarcane, cassava and non GMO corn starch.
Eat all at once, take on the go in a handbag or consume as a healthy after dinner treat.
