Is there a difference between hydrolyzed collagen and collagen peptides?
There is no difference. Hydrolyzed collagen and collagen peptides are two names for the same ingredient. Hydrolyzed collagen is collagen that has been broken down into collagen peptides. Collagen naturally occurs in the form of long twisted fibers that are difficult for the body to digest. Collagen peptides are created by special enzymes that break hard-to-digest collagen fibers into small pieces in a hydrolysis reaction. These short collagen pieces, or peptides, are quickly absorbed and easy for the body to use in building new collagen.
What are the benefits of type I collagen?
There are many types of collagen. Type I collagen is the building block of our skin’s structure, making up around 80% of our skin’s dermal layer. Our bodies produce collagen naturally, but its production begins to decrease as we age. Collagen supplementation has been shown to be beneficial for maintaining healthy and hydrated skin. Marine collagen is composed mostly of type I collagen and is rich in unique, specialized amino acids that have targeted benefits for skin health and support the body’s natural production of collagen.

When is the best time to take Collagen Elixir?
The best time to consume Collagen Elixir is daily! Any time, any place – as long as you consume one full serving of Collagen Elixir each day you will continue to receive its benefits.
How long do the benefits of Collagen Elixir last?
Your body naturally produces collagen every day to build new collagen and repair older collagen fibers in the body. You can think of it like a continuous process of recycling and renewal because some of the collagen in your body is replaced every day. When using Collagen Elixir daily, you are providing your body with nutrients to support new collagen production each day. As with any nutritional approach, it takes time for the nutrients in Collagen Elixir to support your body’s natural process of renewal. When you stop using Collagen Elixir, you are no longer providing your body with the same nutritional support for daily collagen renewal and the benefit will gradually fade.

How does Isagenix assure the purity of the hydrolyzed collagen peptides?
The hydrolyzed collagen peptides in Collagen Elixir are derived from Scandinavian, cold–water cod, pollock, and haddock that are generally lower in mercury compared to top-of-the-food-chain fish like tuna and swordfish. Once the collagen has been purified to hydrolyzed collagen peptides, the raw material is tested for mercury and heavy metals to ensure purity, quality, and safety. In addition to the raw material testing, Isagenix sends every finished batch of Collagen Elixir for third-party independent testing, which includes mercury and heavy metals.
Isagenix follows a strict no-compromise commitment and prioritizes the purity, safety, and efficacy of all products.
Will extreme temperatures during shipment affect my Collagen Elixir?
Unlike ordinary foods that contain long twisted collagen fibers that are difficult for the body to digest, Collagen Elixir contains collagen peptides that have been hydrolyzed to increase their bioavailability. These small, easy-to-digest peptides are also very resistant to damage from heat and freezing temperatures.
Should your Collagen Elixir arrive frozen or hot, simply thaw or chill to desired temperature before enjoying.
