Who better than a nutritionist when you want an expert opinion on the best nutritional supplements?
Here's why Collagen Peptides are trusted by experts.
Meet Jade & Jenny, Expert Nutritionists 👋
Jenny and Jade are both qualified and experienced nutritionists who can't get enough of collagen peptides - for themselves or their clients!
There's no better person than a nutritionist to give their honest and expert opinion when it comes to nutritional supplements - like collagen.
So let's get the low down of why Jenny and Jade will always vouch for collagen peptides - both personally and professionally.
The Nutritional Benefits of Collagen Explained by Experts
Collagen supplementation helps to support the foundations of health. Here are just some of the reasons why nutritionists Jenny and Jade love to use collagen peptides and recommend them to their clients.
Collagen is an Amazing Supplement for Healthy Ageing
Jenny is a nutritionist and author who swears by using Hunter & Gather Collagen Peptides to support the foundations of health.
She recognises the importance of topping up our body's own natural production of collagen, especially given that this declines as we get older.
"As we get older we lose more collagen and that has an effect not only on our appearance, including wrinkles and more saggy skin, but it also has an effect on our bone health and muscle health."

Collagen is a Natural Product to Support Gut Health
Jade is also a registered nutritionist, who recommends collagen peptides to her clients to support optimal gut health.
"Whilst the research on the direct effect of collagen on the gut is still limited, there are a number of resources that point to the beneficial use of the product."
For example, a cell body study found that the use of collagen directly improved the integrity of tight junctions in the gut barrier. So that means that collagen may improve leaky gut issues.
Collagen is also high in the amino acid glycine, which has been shown in animal studies to improve gut barrier function and the composition of the microbiome.
Another amino acid in collagen - glutamine - has been shown in human research to be particularly useful in healing from post-infectious IBS.

Tips for Getting the Most out of Your Collagen
Jenny also shared with us her top tips for getting the most out of your collagen powder, for maximum absorption and benefits.
"Try not to consume too much sugar. Support your body by consuming food sources of collagen too and for me that means lots of lovely bone broth. Try not to sunbathe too often and also when you consume collagen, consume alongside sources of Vitamin C - like my smoothie bowls and smoothies! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!"
But why Hunter & Gather Collagen?
Not all collagen is created equal and it is super important to choose a collagen that is clean, natural and effective.
We know that our Bovine and Marine Collagen Peptides are the very best out there in terms of quality and benefits, but don't just take our word for it! Here is what our registered nutritionists have to say about Hunter & Gather Collagen Peptides.
"The reason I like this one in particular is that it is a single ingredient - just one ingredient - and it doesn't have a flavour. It's simply hydrolysed collagen powder and you can add it to anything that you would normally be consuming in your diet. So I will have it in my smoothie, or even in my coffee." - Jenny
"These are many reasons why you may be able to support your gut health with the use of an unflavoured, quality collagen like this one from Hunter & Gather." - Jade
