Most everyone enjoys a good mystery. We love a great novel or movie with plot twists and turns, suspicious characters and curious clues, all building to the dramatic conclusion and the surprise at the end. “Wow, didn’t see that coming.” A compelling mystery can be entertaining indeed, but in the supplement world, it can literally be a horror story.
Unfortunately, there is a disturbing trend emerging in the nutritional supplement industry. And that is the manufacture and marketing of collagen products. What’s wrong with collagen products, you might say? The better question is, what isn’t wrong with them?
What You Should Know Before You Buy Animal Collagen Supplements
Right now, irresponsible (to be polite) marketers are aggressively promoting truly disgusting products. Anyone concerned with purity and propriety would be aghast at what these so-called supplements actually contain.
Believe it or not, the vast majority of collagen products are made from a processed form of gelatin that is derived from the hides, skin, joints and bones of slaughtered animals. These by-products, that would otherwise be discarded, are rendered into a “pink slime” utilizing heat and acid before they are converted into tablets, capsules and powders for your immediate consumption. The processing methods used to do this are so harsh that the majority of the protein’s nutritional value is destroyed. As a result, brands selling animal collagen peptides are forced to show “zero daily value” for the protein on their product labels in order to avoid lawsuits or government crackdown. The true mystery here is………..why in the world would anyone knowingly ingest this garbage?
They Don’t Work Anyway!
The fact is, ingesting animal-based collagen products will not translate to producing more collagen in your body any more than eating brains will make you smarter. It simply doesn’t work like that. And yet this category has grown in popularity in spite of having little to no scientific basis. The link below is from the European Food Safety Authority who tends to be far more thorough than the governing agencies here in the US. They reviewed seven different studies on animal collagen peptides.

So it’s really no surprise that the companies selling this stuff rely on aggressive marketing campaigns to literally cram it down our throats. Consider this: The raw ingredient cost for these animal collagen products is so low that the $40-50 per bottle being charged to the consumer is almost pure profit. This allows a significant amount of money to be spent on advertising. So, in effect, the consumer is unknowingly paying for marketing deliberately meant to sell them a product that doesn’t work. It’s a situation that we find offensive.
Perhaps worst of all, these products amount to yet another assault on the precious animal kingdom. When will we realize that animals are deserving of much greater dignity and respect. Really, how much more can our planet withstand? When will the supplement industry finally realize how critical it is that we stop using animals in products and turn the corner to more plant based solutions. When will this happen? As a matter of fact, right now!
