Getting enough collagen during pregnancy is critical because it supplies essential proteins that our bodies use – and that our babies need as they grow – to build and repair our bones, joint surfaces, skin, teeth, eyes, arteries, intervertebral disks, and much more. Collagen is also one of the most important nutrients needed to maintain a strong body, keep you in healing mode, and counter-act the degenerative effects of aging.
We recommend the Upgraded Collagen available on our sister site, UpgradedSelf, because it is the highest quality collagen sourced from the purest pasture-raised cows. These cattle are untouched by drugs or hormones and are not just “grass-fed” (which can mean grass-fed, but grain finished, or only fed grass sometimes) but actually spend their entire lives in the pasture.
Upgraded Collagen is enzymatically processed several times to leave its peptides intact, resulting in a neutral tasting, highly available protein that doesn’t clump up or have a strong taste like gelatin. It is far easier to use and contains more collagen than bone broth. Upgraded Collagen does not contain any dairy, egg, sugar, corn, yeast, wheat, soy, gluten, artificial flavors, or preservatives. Our collagen source has been used safely for many years, and is certified by the FDA as GRAS (generally recognized as safe).
