Why You Need Collagen for Heart Health

Collagen is key for skin, bones, hair and joints, but it's also crucial for heart health. As we age, reduced collagen levels can increase cardiovascular risks. We'll discuss how to use collagen for better heart health and supplement selection.

Heart Disease in U.S. Men and Women

According to the Heart Disease & Stroke Statistical Fact Sheet for men and women, cardiovascular disease  remains a significant health concern in the United States. Between 2015 and 2018, 44.4% of females and 54.1% of malesaged 20 and older had some form of cardiovascular disease. Similarly, about 9.1 million females and 11 million males aged 20 and older were living with coronary heart disease. These statistics highlight the pressing need for preventative measures and management strategies for both men and women.

Supports Stronger And Healthier Arteries

Collagen serves as a critical building block for the arteries, which are the essential conduits transporting blood from the heart to various parts of the body. Lacking sufficient structural integrity, these arteries can become frail, rigid, and less pliable, increasing susceptibility to cardiovascular diseases, heart attacks, and strokes.

Emerging research points to the efficacy of collagen in maintaining robust and resilient arteries. One particular study [1] indicated that participants who ingested 16 grams of collagen daily—divided between breakfast and dinner—experienced a notable decrease in arterial stiffness. 

Supports a healthy balance of Cholesterol

When it comes to heart health, it's all about maintaining the right balance of good HDL and bad LDL cholesterol. Elevated LDL levels can trigger plaque formation in your arteries, leading to narrowed vessels, disrupted blood flow, and an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. This condition is known as atherosclerosis. But here's the good news: collagen can be your heart's best friend. Studies indicate that collagen not only optimizes your cholesterol ratios but also lowers overall cholesterol levels and triglycerides—those risky fats linked to cardiovascular diseases. One study [1] even found that collagen substantially improved LDL and HDL ratios while reducing markers indicative of atherosclerosis risk. 

Supports Healthy Blood Pressure

Stiff arteries and plaque buildup can lead to high blood pressure, but collagen may offer a solution. Research [3] shows that glycine, an amino acid in collagen, can lower blood pressure and protect against arterial damage. Collagen also increases nitric oxide, which improves blood flow and lowers pressure. One study [4] found significant blood pressure reductions in hypertensive subjects after just four weeks of collagen supplements. Another study [5] showed that daily collagen intake reduced arterial stiffness and increased nitric oxide levels. Consider adding collagen to your routine for comprehensive heart health.

Reduces Inflammation

You may already be aware of collagen's power to reduce inflammation in joints and arthritis sufferers. But did you know it's anti-inflammatory benefits is also a weapon against heart disease? Collagen acts as a natural inhibitor of harmful inflammatory substances that contribute to atherosclerosis, or the hardening of arteries. Once again, the star player is glycine, renowned for its anti-inflammatory properties. Some research [6] even indicates that insufficient levels of glycine may heighten the risk of experiencing a heart attack.Incorporating collagen into your daily regimen could be your proactive step toward a heart-friendly, inflammation-free life.

Supplemental Facts



Ingredients: 100% Bovine hide collagen peptides from 100% grass-fed bovine.

Amount: 280 grams

One simple ingredient, pure hydrolyzed collagen peptides type I & III, the most potent and abundant types of collagen in our bodies making up 90%. These peptides contain essential amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins.

Other collagens include Vitamin C, Hyaluronic acid, other types of collagen or  to their formulas. We DO NOT for VERY GOOD specific reasons.

Here are just a few of our reasons:

Harming Bioavailability: The addition of Vitamin C & Hyaluronic Acid can act as a pro-oxidant and oxidize collagen’s amino acids during storage, potentially damaging the bioavailability of the amino acids. 

Deficiency: Most people are not deficient in Vitamin C and a daily value of 90mg can be achieved through dietary sources such as an orange. Consuming real food that is rich in Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and other vitamins and minerals is the best way to enrich the body with essential vitamins and minerals. Collagen syntheses requires nearly every vitamin we have, not just C. Eating real food for your Vitamin C gives you other vitamins and minerals to aid in collagen syntheses. 

Type I & III Collagen ONLY:  Type I & III collagen make up 90% of our body’s collagen and are the most potent types for increasing youthful levels. Adding other, less effective types DILUTES the potency of the top two types I & III.

How to Use

Add 1/2 to a full scoop (equals 10 to 20 grams) in your smoothie, favorite hot beverage or in your baking recipes. Take collagen daily for best results.*

How much should I take?

The amount of collagen you need depends on various factors such as age, degree of pain, stress levels, etc. Here is a recommended daily dose based on desired effects:

• 5-10 grams of collagen each day Increases glycine and proline production which supports your body in making collagen.*

• 10-20 grams per day: Boosts energy, promotes weight management, reduces inflammation, improves gut health and digestion, and enhances skin, hair, and nail health.*

• 20-40 grams per day: Promotes overall healing, joint health, cellular replenishment, digestive lining repair, weight loss, and muscle building.*

Concerned About Heavy Toxins in Your Collagen? We've Got You Covered!

Did the social media uproar over Vital Protein's Prop 65 lawsuits make you double-take on your collagen choices? You're not alone. And Vital Protein isn't the only brand caught up in these heavy metal worries. That's exactly why we created Yonder—to offer cleaner, safer collagen options.

Your Go-To Guide on Collagen: What to Know and What to Look For

Let's break down some collagen lingo:

Hydrolyzed Collagen: This means the collagen's been processed to break down large proteins, making it easier on your tummy and great for cold drinks.

Collagen Peptides: This is just another name for hydrolyzed collagen—so, same thing!

Here are some quick facts to know:

Type 1 & 3 Collagen: These are your collagen MVPs, making up about 90% of your body's total collagen.

Bovine Collagen vs other sources: Collagen comes from various sources, but research points to bovine collagen as the most effective option. While marine collagen, often made from unused fish parts like bones and scales, can be noted as a sustainable choice, it can also be high in toxins, same goes for chicken and eggshells with finding a clean source. That's why it's crucial to opt for a clean, reliable collagen source, like what you'll find with Yonder.

Dosage Matters: For real benefits, aim for 2–10 grams per day. Higher doses can actually be a plus for things like injury recovery or uploading from larger depleted levels.

Form is Key: Steer clear of gummies and other forms that offer as low as 50 mg and might include gut-unfriendly ingredients.

Additives: If you’re going for flavored or sweetened options, make sure they're clean. No artificial nonsense or hidden sugars, please!

The Scoop on Flavored Collagen

At Yonder, we offer pure, clean, flavorless collagen peptides for those who like to keep it simple. But if you're in the mood for something flavored, here's why Yonder Chocolate and Vanilla with MCT versions are the best:
Zero Sugar & Low-Carb: Our Chocolate and Vanilla with MCT options have 0 grams of sugar and just 3 grams of carbs.

Pure Stevia: We only use stevia in its purest form, without chemical dilutions that can mess with your gut. So many brands use the less expensive “stevia” that is diluted with a 17% Solution of DMSO which is a chemical that research shows negatively impacts your gut.

Clean Natural Flavors: Our flavors come from pure plant-based ingredients—no chemicals, no major allergens.

We take flavor seriously. Crafting consistently great taste is an art, and we're proud to say we've mastered it. With the best flavor scientists in the holistic space, we make not just delicious but also healthy collagen options. 

Choose collagen wisely and use it effectively with Yonder!

Your Questions answered with our FAQ's

Why Yonder Collagen?

Potency Matters - Our collagen contains only Type 1 and 3, the most abundant forms in the human body, accounting for 90%. You don't need 5 types of collagen or added supplements, as they only dilute the potency of Type 1 and 3. Stick to the most effective types and a balanced diet for optimal results. Maximize your investment with Yonder, which provides only what you need. Avoid the marketing gimmicks and extra cost.

100% Grass Fed & Finished - Yonder® Collagen is sourced from healthy, grass-fed cows that live outdoors and happily feed on green pasture, which is different from most other collagen products that come from minimally grass-fed or grain-fed cows from unregulated sources.

Highest Bioavailability - Our advanced enzymatic hydrolysis process creates 97% pure collagen peptides for optimal digestion, rapid absorption, and high bioavailability with highly potent health-beneficial amino acids.* Our collagen easily dissolves in hot or cold liquids with virtually no taste.

What is collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It can be found in every type of tissue, including skin, hair, nails, bones, and organs like the heart and liver. You could say it's the "glue" that holds everything together. Collagen is made up of glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, the three amino acids that our bodies use to create collagen.

Why should I consume collagen?

Collagen Decline: Your natural collagen levels start to decline as early as your 20s, leading to a loss of skin elasticity, joint aches, and digestive issues. By the time you reach 50 years of age, your collagen levels have dropped to just 50% from 100%.*

Symptoms: If you notice your skin sagging, hair thinning, joints aching, having digestive issues, or loss of muscle mass, there is a good chance your collagen levels are on the decline or grossly depleted.* 

Depletion Factors: Aging is not the only factor affecting collagen levels, other factors such as pollution, sugar intake, low estrogen also contribute to its depletion.*

Solution: With declining collagen levels, it's important to find a solution. Collagen supplementation can help fill the gap and provide the necessary nutrients for optimal health and wellness.*

How much collagen should I take?

The amount of collagen you need depends on various factors such as age, degree of pain, stress levels, etc. Here is a recommended daily dose based on desired effects:

• 5-10 grams of collagen each day Increases glycine and proline production which supports your body in making collagen.*

• 10-20 grams per day: Boosts energy, promotes weight management, reduces inflammation, improves gut health and digestion, and enhances skin, hair, and nail health.*

• 20-40 grams per day: Promotes overall healing, joint health, cellular replenishment, digestive lining repair, weight loss, and muscle building.*

What is the best type of collagen?

Out of the five most common types of collagen, type I and type III are especially good for maintaining healthy hair, skin, and nails, supporting bone, joint and gut health, and benefiting the body’s overall cellular structure.* Types I and III are the most abundant types in the human body accounting for over 90%

How soon will I notice a difference?

This will depend on what you are using it for and the current state of your health. Many people start to see results within 30-90 days, sometimes sooner. As with most supplements, results are dependent on consistency.

Why don't you add Vitamin C, Hyaluronic acid, other types of collagen, or tryptophan to your formula?

  1. Harming Bioavailability: The addition of Vitamin C & Hyaluronic Acid can act as a pro-oxidant and oxidize collagen’s amino acids during storage, potentially damaging the bioavailability of the amino acids.
  2. Deficiency: Most people are not deficient in Vitamin C and a daily value of 90mg can be achieved through dietary sources such as an orange. Consuming real food that is rich in Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and other vitamins and minerals is the best way to enrich the body with essential vitamins and minerals. Collagen syntheses requires nearly every vitamin we have, not just C. Eating real food for your Vitamin C gives you other vitamins and minerals to aid in collagen syntheses. Bone Broth, an Orange, and Sweet Potatoes are just a few examples of real food to incorporate in your daily diet to maximize your daily collagen supplementation.
  3. Supplementing C: If supplementing with Vitamin C, there are superior options available that absorb better than micro amounts added to collagen powders. One of our all-time favorite vitamin C supplement to consume are the 1,000 mg daily packets of Lypo-Spheric® Vitamin C which is HIGHLY bioavailable.
  4. Diluting Potency: Type I & III collagen make up 90% of our body’s collagen and are the most potent types for increasing youthful levels. Adding other, less effective types dilutes the potency of the top two.
  5. Tryptophan: is an essential amino acid that is needed to form a complete protein. Although collagen contains 8 out of the 9 essential amino acids, it is missing tryptophan. However, adding tryptophan to collagen is not necessary to increase collagen levels to youthful levels. Consuming complete proteins through a diet rich in real foods is the simplest way to ensure the intake of all essential amino acids.
  6. Unnecessary Cost & Less Potent: Avoiding marketing gimmicks and extra costs from other brands.

Do you test your collagen?
Our collagen is rigorously tested by a reputable 3rd party lab; Eurofins, the most trusted testing facility in the USA. below 0.5 micrograms/day of lead and require no Prop. 65 Warning for California. We are Glyphosate/Pesticide-free. Pure and clean.
Can I mix this into hot or cold liquids? Does heat damage it?

Yonder® Collagen Peptides are formulated to mix easily into hot or cold beverages, and this amount of heat should not damage the collagen. Collagen proteins keep their integrity up to 400°, making them easy to bake with!

Can someone on a vegan diet take collagen?

There is no truly vegan collagen, as collagen supplements come from animal sources. Yonder® Collagen Peptides are sourced only from grass-fed, pasture-raised, Grade A bovine, and hormone-free and 100% non-GMO because we know grass-fed cows are happier and healthier.

Are there side effects from taking collagen?

As with anything, some people may experience mild digestive discomfort when trying new supplements, including collagen. If you are sensitive, you may want to try beginning with a smaller dose and gradually increasing to the suggested amount. That being said, collagen is generally well tolerated with few reported side effects.*

Are there any fillers or additives and how do I know it doesn’t have contaminants or heavy metals?

We never add unnecessary fillers or additives to our products, and our Collagen Peptides are no exception. Yonder® Collagen Peptides are 100% Bovine Collagen, Types I & III. Our Collagen is always 100% manufactured here in the U.S. with grass-fed and pasture-raised Brazilian-sourced collagen, is 3rd party tested for U.S. standards, compliance, and quality control, and must always be awarded a passing certificate of analysis before being put into circulation. It is always tested to ensure there are no significant microorganisms or molds.

Are collagen peptides the same as collagen gelatin?

No. Both collagen and gelatin come from cartilage and have the same composition of amino acids. Collagen peptides are easily soluble in any liquid or recipe. In contrast, gelatin has a gelling or thickening effect and can be utilized in a wide range of cooking and baking applications.

How do you sweeten the Vanilla and Chocolate Collagen?

The flavor of our Chocolate and Vanilla is delicious! We have the best flavor profile scientist in the holistic natural product space formulating not only delicious tasting formulas, but also the healthiest. 

Achieving consistent great flavor is a form of art that is highly proprietary and we rock at this! 

Both our Chocolate and Vanilla with MCT Collagen have 0 grams of Sugar and only 3 grams of Carbohydrates. 

Stevia: Stevia is a very safe sweetener in its purest form and we ONLY use it in its purest form. A lot of the stevia on the market is diluted with a 17% Solution of DMSO which is a chemical. Our Stevia is NOT denatured with chemicals. The Stevia that is diluted with DMSO can cause gut issues and there are clinical studies with DMSO diluted Stevia showing these issues with the gut.  

Natural Flavors: We use only pure clean plant base ingredients for our Natural Flavors. There is NO MSG. They are fully Vegan. There are no artificial ingredients or chemicals within our Natural Flavors. They are free of major allergens: milk, eggs, fish [e.g., bass, flounder, cod], Crustacean shellfish [e.g., crab, lobster, shrimp], tree nuts [e.g., almonds, walnuts, pecans], peanuts, wheat [gluten], and soybean.

9 More Proven Benefits of Collagen 

1. Better Skin

One of the most celebrated advantages of collagen powder is its ability to rejuvenate and firm up the skin from the inside out. As we age and collagen depletes, skin tends to become thinner and more prone to wrinkling, while also losing its natural moisture and vibrancy. This condition is sometimes referred to as "crepey skin".

By supplementing with collagen, you can replenish the lost collagen, resulting in a subtle lift and tightening of the skin, which in turn diminishes the visibility of wrinkles[4] and cellulite. Collagen also aids in skin hydration, helping to maintain its moisture levels and thereby contributing to a more youthful, glowing appearance[5][6

2. Strong Bones

While calcium is often the first supplement people consider for bone health, there's compelling evidence to suggest that collagen powder also plays a key role in maintaining strong and healthy bones. Recent research indicates that collagen supplementation can not only stave off bone deterioration but may even reverse bone loss.

A study conducted in January 2018 focused on post-menopausal women experiencing age-related decreases in bone mineral density (BMD), a condition known as osteopenia. The research found that collagen supplementation led to "a favorable shift in bone markers, signifying increased bone formation and decreased bone degradation." This implies that collagen supplements could serve as an effective measure for both preventing and treating bone loss, particularly in individuals with conditions like osteopenia and osteoporosis

3. Thicker Hair

Involutional alopecia refers to the natural hair thinning that comes with aging. As we get older, a greater number of hair follicles enter and remain in a "resting" phase for extended periods compared to earlier life stages. The silver lining is that these "resting" follicles can potentially be reactivated.

According to a double-blind, placebo-controlled study conducted in 2012, collagen powder supplements were found to "safely and effectively promote significant hair growth"[10]. The study's participants experienced enhancements in hair volume, scalp coverage, and hair thickness. Additional benefits included increased hair shine as well as improved skin moisture retention and smoothness[10].

Another research study observed increases in both total hair count and hair density among participants. The study also reported that, after beginning a regimen with collagen powder, hairs were less prone to shedding and were more securely anchored, making them harder to pull out[9].

4. Stronger Nails

Brittle nail syndrome is a common issue, particularly among women, characterized by nails that are rough, uneven in thickness, discolored, and prone to peeling. While the condition can be attributed to various factors like imbalanced moisture levels, a frequent underlying cause is a lack of sufficient collagen needed for healthy nail growth.

A study involving individuals with brittle nails revealed that collagen powder supplementation led to a 12% increase in the rate of nail growth and a 42% reduction in the occurrence of broken nails[11]. Impressively, 88% of the study participants experienced improvements in their nail condition after incorporating collagen powder into their routine, and 80% reported being fully satisfied with the results[11].

5. Faster Recovery & Stronger Fascia

Collagen is vital for injury recovery, whether it's the typical soreness experienced after intense exercise or acute injuries like burns, cuts, and surgical wounds. The body relies on ample collagen to repair worn-out muscle tissue and facilitate wound healing through scar tissue formation and the strengthening of fascia. Fascia, which comprises 90% collagen, serves as a protective mesh around your internal organs and muscles. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, making wound recovery more challenging and time-consuming.

A 2019 study involving patients with severe burns showed promising results. Patients were administered either a placebo or a collagen supplement, and those receiving collagen experienced a wound healing rate that was 3.7 times faster compared to the placebo group. The study concluded that hydrolyzed (powdered) collagen supplements could dramatically accelerate wound healing and significantly reduce the duration of hospital stays for burn patients.[19]

Another research study examined recovery following strenuous exercise and found that collagen peptide supplements might offer a performance advantage the day after a high-impact workout session.[20]

6. Healthy Joints

As we age, joint pain is almost an inevitable issue to confront. The cartilage in our joints, which contains collagen, starts to deteriorate. Our bodies struggle to replenish this collagen and repair the damaged cartilage, leading to reduced joint cushioning, inflammation, and discomfort.

Several research studies have illuminated the positive impact collagen supplements can have on joint health, especially as we age. One study found compelling evidence supporting the use of collagen supplements for treating and preventing joint-related issues in both athletic individuals and those at higher risk due to aging. The researchers noted that patients who took collagen experienced a notable reduction in joint pain, both while at rest and in motion[15].

Another study specifically aimed to assess the effects of collagen peptide powder on symptoms of osteoarthritis and other joint disorders. The research concluded that collagen does accumulate beneficially in joints and found that "collagen [supplementation] is safe and improves measures of pain and function in men and women with osteoarthritis or other arthritic conditions"[17].

7. Increased Muscle Mass

Boosting muscle mass might seem like a concern exclusive to bodybuilders and athletes, but it's an important consideration for everyone especially as we age. Enhanced muscle mass contributes to greater strength and stability, reducing the likelihood of falls. Furthermore, muscles serve as protective layers for our bones and organs; hence, a higher muscle mass can reduce the risk of organ damage or bone fractures in case of a fall. Also the more muscle mass, the faster our metabolism.

A 2021 study found that middle-aged men who were not athletes experienced significant benefits from taking collagen powder. Those who supplemented with collagen saw a notable increase in fat-free mass (essentially muscle) and a decrease in body fat. The control group, which received a different form of protein—whey—did not experience the same advantages[1]. This suggests that merely increasing protein intake is not sufficient; the type of protein matters. Another study involving elderly men yielded similar results[2].

8. Reduced Bloating & Digestive Issues

Bloating is a widespread issue that often results in discomfort and pain, particularly after consuming foods that irritate the digestive tract lining. Modern diets can make it challenging for our bodies to efficiently digest food, leading to a range of digestive complications like bloating, cramps, fluctuating episodes of constipation and diarrhea, and inflammation. Some theories also propose that "leaky gut"—a condition where the intestinal lining is compromised, allowing toxins to enter the bloodstream—can have broad-ranging impacts on overall health.

A study published in May 2022 examined whether collagen could alleviate bloating and other digestive concerns in healthy women. Remarkably, 93% of the women who took collagen and completed the study reported a significant reduction in digestive symptoms, including bloating, without making any other changes to their diet or lifestyle. Interestingly, the study also revealed that only about one-third of participants were aware that collagen could be used to improve digestive health[18]. 

9. Weight Management

We're all aware that carrying excess weight can lead to a myriad of health problems. While there's no magic solution to weight loss—effort is always required—you can optimize your chances of success by taking advantage of available tools. Collagen is one such tool that can assist in your weight loss journey.

As previously mentioned, collagen supplements have been found to not only reduce fat accumulation but also to increase fat-free mass[12]. Another study indicated that individuals who took collagen supplements experienced a significant improvement in body fat percentage and overall body fat mass compared to those who didn't[13]. Additionally, research suggests that collagen supplements may be helpful in targeting and reducing stubborn visceral (belly) fat[14].

Final Thoughts

Remember, collagen is not an instant fix; it takes time to work. Most people report noticeable improvements within 3 to 6 weeks. If you discontinue taking collagen, you'll likely notice a regression in the benefits—like achier joints or thinner nails and hair.

So, be patient and give collagen the time it needs to work its wonders. It's likely that the issues you're trying to address didn't develop overnight, so you can't expect instantaneous results. To ensure you don't run out, consider buying collagen in bulk, which can also be more cost-effective. Stay committed, and give your body the time it needs to reap the benefits of collagen.
