Not all Collagen is made equal. We go the extra mile and incorporate FORTIGEL® in addition to bovine collagen. The result is a clinically researched collagen peptide formula that was designed and tested to promote cartilage and joint health in addition to supporting tendons and ligaments. Our formulation also includes Vitamin-C to improve both the amount and strength of collagen formed in the body. †
Most people are familiar with Collagen's benefits regarding healthier skin, hair and nails. However, recent research shows Collagen is a structural protein that plays an integral role in connective tissue health.† It's the most abundant protein in the body, occurring most commonly in skin, bones, and soft tissues like tendons, ligaments and joint cartilage.
Daily Collagen supplementation is crucial to long-term tendon, joint, and soft-tissue integrity.† Momentous Collagen is specifically formulated to go beyond the traditional benefits of hair, skin, and nail health.† Fortigel and Vitamin-C are included to improve collagen synthesis and strength in your body.†
How to use
We were one of the first to burst the Collagen and caffeine bubble. That's right, the research shows that caffeine can inhibit collagen growth, impeding growth in bones and skin. Unlike what you may see suggested elsewhere, you should not add collagen to your coffee to get the most benefit out of it.
That's why we recommend:
Rest Days: 2-3 hours post caffeine consumption.
Training Days: 30-60 minutes before exercise to promote synthesis and absorption.
Serving Size: 1 Scoop
Can be taken on its own or with food.
Proven Research. Proven Results.
Impact/Science: Testing and research have proven that FORTIGEL® can help to improve mobility through the use of bioactive peptides. FORTIGEL® contains a hydrolyzed form of collagen broken down into smaller peptides, which are more easily absorbed by the body. It's formulated with a high concentration of Bioactive Collagen Peptides, a patented form of hydrolyzed collagen, optimized to maximize stimulation of the human cell types involved in collagen biosynthesis.

"What we find is the folks that supplement with collagen, and research definitively shows this, is they build that extracellular matrix more efficiently than if they didn't supplement with it. If we're training really hard we need countermeasures to help us to be able to do that at a high level and we need other things other than just grit and determination to push through it. "
