Collagen Clarity: Why Choosing Grass-Fed & Finished Matters for Your Health


Collagen, the most abundant protein in the human body, plays a crucial role in maintaining the health of our skin, bones, and connective tissues. In the world of nutritional food supplements, not all collagen supplements are created equal. When it comes to hydrolysed collagen powder, the source of the collagen matters significantly.


Why choose a grass-fed & finished collagen powder


It all comes down to the quality of life and pasture diet that the cattle enjoy. The digestive system of cattle is naturally designed for a diet of grass, not grain. Grain-fed cattle that are finished in feedlots require antibiotics to prevent bloat from grain consumption and are at a higher risk of disease due to close confinement. Additionally, in some instances they may be given growth hormones to maximise their market value.


Grass-fed and finished (pasture-raised) cattle are not only healthier and graze in a natural manner, but they also boast an improved nutrient profile compared to their grain-fed counterparts. Diverse pasture grasses offer a more natural diet for cattle, containing a variety of beneficial secondary compounds that promote cattle health and protein quality. This diversity reduces the need for interventions to manage disease or illness, resulting in healthier animals and, ultimately, a higher quality collagen hydrolysate product.


When it comes to collagen supplements, the source matters. Bovine collagen is derived from the skin, bones, tendons, muscles, and connective tissues of cattle. Therefore, how the cattle were raised and what they were fed have a direct impact on the quality of the collagen supplement.
