It seems like everyone is touting the benefits of collagen these days. Famous actresses swear by the ingredient as a beauty routine staple. And here at Ancient Nutrition, we receive collagen-related success stories from Multi Collagen Protein users every single day.
The skin, gut, hair and joint benefits are real.
But what makes Ancient Nutrition different from many other companies is this: Co-founder Jordan Rubin and I are deeply committed to pushing the envelope using cutting-edge ingredients and methods.
As a clinical nutritionist, I’m always looking for ways to bring even more nutrition and benefits to the world. Ancient Nutrition co-founder Jordan Rubin, a pioneering formulator with decades of experience under his belt, is doing that same. And we recently made a game-changing discovery while researching collagen.
We had a theory … that the key to unlocking collagen’s full potential involved the classic practice of fermentation.
And we were right. Here’s what it means for you …
Why Is Our Collagen Clinically Studied?
The newly added fermented eggshell collagen ingredient in Multi Collagen Protein is backed by six human clinical studies. That is unheard of in the supplement industry — no other collagen on the market presently offers this.
That means this new upgraded ingredient went through rigorous testing in human studies to identify its proven benefits — and how long it takes to see specific, reliable results.
The results are nothing short of amazing …
And I think you’ll see why all collagens are not created equally.
Multi Collagen Protein is packed with four different sources of collagen — bovine, chicken, fish and egg. This unique collagen matrix provides collagen types I, II, III, V and X. That’s important, since different collagen types perform all sorts of duties in our bodies.
The fermented eggshell membrane superstar ingredient packs dozens of proven benefits into a single scoop (or serving of capsules) thanks to the natural fermentation process. That means we didn’t have to use extreme heat or even chemicals like some other companies use to unlock our collagen’s power.
“Fermentation enables the beneficial components of the membrane to reach the digestive tract in its optimal state for functioning in the body.”
The incredible benefits below are the result of human clinical studies, the type of studies considered “gold standard” because they deliver the highest level of evidence due to their potential to limit all sorts of bias.
Ready to see how the newly reformulated Multi Collagen Protein can elevate your wellness to even greater heights?
Our eggshell membrane collagen is an extensively researched ingredient with proven results based on human clinical trials. That makes this upgraded collagen formula perfect for anyone seeking greater comfort, whether it’s for everyday life or sports. The time-tested skin and perks are truly exciting, too.
As always, our hydrolyzed bovine collagen peptides from grass-fed and pasture-raised cows are backed by five double-blind, randomized controlled studies showing it benefits healthy skin, nails and joints.
Multi Collagen Protein’s proven benefits are rapid and real, including …
