What is Collagen?

Collagen is a major component of the human body. About 30 % of our total body protein is collagen. Collagen is crucial for mobile joints, stable bones, healthy muscles, strong ligaments and tendons, smooth skin, glossy hair and healthy finger nails - a vital component of our whole body.

In order to reap the maximum benefits of collagen, we recommend you start taking it in your early 20s. But you’ll also see benefits whenever you begin!

How is Glue& different?

Glue& is a world first premium formulation combining bovine and marine collagen along with a number of additional nutrients to make sure you're energised and working hard at being the best version of yourself. We only use VERISOL® collagen - it's a Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP®). What that means is that's been designed to be more targeted than general types of collagen, resulting in a stronger impact.

What is VERISOL B®?

VERISOL B® is a clinically proven form of exogenous hydrolysed collagen, derived from Bovine, and consisting of both Type 1 and Type 3 collagen peptides. 

Taking VERISOL B® can stimulate skins metabolism, countering collagen depletion from the inside.  

VERISOL B® has been specifically formulated for skin and beauty benefits, although consuming VERISOL B® also has a positive effect on bone and joint health.

What is VERISOL® F?

A new study confirms that supplementation with VERISOL® F can be just as effective as consuming meat collagen. The randomised controlled trial conducted by Proksch, et al., in Kiel, Germany (2020), showed that supplementation with these fish-derived Bioactive Collagen Peptides®, at a daily dose of 5 grams, significantly improved skin elasticity and reduced wrinkle volume after 4 weeks.

Where does Glue& collagen come from?

VERISOL® collagen peptides are derived from natural raw materials of animal origin that undergo rigorous inspection and approval by veterinary authorities to ensure suitability for human consumption. The primary raw material for our collagen peptides is collagen protein, abundant in skin and bone. Our suppliers are reputable meat processors who meticulously separate and deliver the raw materials in various states—fresh, cooled, or deep-frozen— to ensure freshness.

This meticulous sourcing and handling process guarantees that our collagen peptides meet the highest standards for safety, quality, and effectiveness.

What are Bioactive Collagen Peptides®?

Through the process of hydrolysis normal collagen is broken down into smaller molecules, known as collagen peptides, that are a variety of shapes and sizes.

These collagen peptides can then be filtered further via an enzymatic process which groups all of the same shape and size of molecule together and condenses them into a new, unique form called a Bioactive Collagen Peptide®.

With Bioactive Collagen Peptides® we are able to guarantee that we are using the right collagen peptide for the right purpose. For example the VERISOL® Bioactive Collagen Peptide® in our Glue& Collagen product contains only the right molecules for the collagen receptors in your hair, skin and nails.

We use different Bioactive Collagen Peptides® in all of our products to make targeted, high strength collagen solutions that deliver pure and positive results.

What does Glue& collagen taste like?

Our world first unique formula is flavoured with no undertones and also has a lovely scent to match the flavour - strawberry bon bon, just like the sweets.

How long does it take to see results?

The “science” states that the effects of collagen within the body typically take at least 4-12 weeks, however some of our customers are seeing results in as little as 2-3 weeks.

If you don’t see results it’s unlikely that the product is not working but more likely that the benefits are happening on the inside rather than the out. All that said, many people are reporting improvements in pain within days; growth of hair and nails within a week and some people are reporting hair re-growth within a month. Many people are reporting faster healing from injuries, enhanced performance in sports, a reduction in sensitivities to food or food allergies, improvement in mobility and better sleep and mental alertness.

Can Glue& Collagen help with dry skin?

Collagen is one of the building blocks of skin. Taking oral collagen supplements can improve elasticity, combat wrinkles and help in healing skin issues with studies to back this. 

Glue& Collagen has added hyaluronic acid to help with hydration.

Can I take Glue& Collagen alongside other supplements?

That said, always consult your GP or medical advisor if you have any medical concerns or are pregnant or breastfeeding.
