What is Collagen?Collagen is largely found in skin, bones, blood vessels and tissues. It plays an essential role in replacing the dead skin cells with new ones, boosts skin strength and elasticity, and recoveries wounds. Collagen is a complex protein that has different amino acids, proline, glycine, and hydroxyproline to ensure the health and vigor of hair, skin, nail, cartilage, bones and joints.
Why choose ZAMMEX Collagen Peptides?ZAMMEX™ collagen peptides are derived from collagen protein. By going through an enzymatic hydrolysis process, the collagen becomes short chain amino acids, which greatly increases its bio-availability.
How to use?ZAMMEX™ collagen peptides are flavor and odor free and can be easily absorbed into hot or cold liquids. Just add one scoop to your water, coffee, tea, juice, yogurt, or smoothie. Create it your own way!
Recommended Dosage?Mix 1 scoop (included) with your favorite beverage or recipe.
Storage Information:Don’t use if the seal is broken or missing. Make sure the cap is tightly sealed. Store away from heat and humidity. Keep out of reach of Children.
Warning:The Collagen Peptides is not a replacement for any healthy diet. It can be taken as an additional product or food supplement. Grab one now and expect its amazing and awesome effect to your health.
I can't get enough collagen. I use it every day and my aging body loves it. Personally, I use it mostly for my skin, hair, nails and eyes, and all of those things benefit greatly from using this daily.
This product (like most others on the market) is hydrolyzed, which makes it easy to dissolve without getting thick. One additional thing I always look for in collagen is "grass-fed" and "pasture raised", because a healthier animal is going to create a healthier product.
This is a nice large jar, as well.
This collagen dissolves completely in hot liquid. It has a slight taste to it, and you can taste it in coffee, but it does not ruin the cup.
I compared this directly with two other brands:
1. Vital Proteins from Costco. The version Amazon sells is called “Original Collagen Peptides” and contains two ingredients that are not in the Costco version.
2. Ancient Nutrition Collagen.
I would rate Vital Proteins the best of the three for coffee. It dissolves completely and has no taste at all. Ancient Nutrition might be higher quality collagen, but it does not dissolve completely in hot water and it will ruin coffee, and other drinks, due to the taste.
There is a definite difference between the different brands of collagen. Many of them work as well as Vital Proteins in coffee. Orgain and Sports Research are two other good brands. Zhou was bad.
I do not notice any direct benefit to taking collagen. I started putting it in coffee when I started drinking Dave Asprey’s Bullet Proof coffee and theoretically, it helps with skin, hair, and nails.
I supplement collagen, mostly for the protein, as you get more protein in collagen with less sugar and sodium, than in most other protein sources. Also, as we get older, our bodies gradually slow in the production of collagen - using it up faster than we can make it. I’m extremely active in my 40s and plan on continuing to be so. Collagen is essential for the health and maintenance of skin, bones, tendons, muscles and the like. And while it is not the fountain of youth, as it won’t replace the lost collagen in my skin necessarily, it will give me the amino acids and protein-based nutrition I need to function. I am low-carb, low-sugar, moderate fat, and high-protein diet-wise, and cross-train and run several times a week.
The Zammex Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides powder is the second Zammex collagen product I’ve tried now. This one gives users 35 calories, 61mg sodium, 9g protein, 21mg calcium, and 10g collagen per scoop. There are ~30 servings per the 10.6oz tube. I do like that the tub is relative to the amount of powder inside; filled to about an inch from the lid. Instead of grossly oversized. Though I wish many of these supplement makers would transition to something other than a big plastic tub to hold their product. Anyway, it does come safety-sealed and with a scoop. Typical fine white powder inside. Says it is fat-free, sugar-free, gluten-free, GMO-free, and is supposed to be grass-fed. Please see images for additional information.
This collagen supplement powder is colorless (other than the white), odorless, unsweetened, and unflavored. When added to my green drinks or coffee, it does not adulterate the flavor profile of either. Aesthetically, I prefer this in my room temperature water, blended green drink than I do my coffee. When blended in my green drink, it will result in a little foaming that settles after (as this happens with most collagen powders). This is moderately-soluble. In my hot coffee, it likes to separate and float about in melted globs and swirls. Doesn’t alter the taste but the look is unappetizing. Yes, even after copious amounts of stirring it is still there. I have used highly-soluble collagen in my coffee before that just disappears. I was hoping this would be similar, but alas not. Nonetheless, it is a perfectly fine collagen supplement that can be used in your shakes and food. I like it mostly because it is affordable, seems well made, low in calories and high in protein without the sugar and fat. It is unflavored and doesn’t change the flavor of anything I put it in. A nice, absentminded way to add protein to my day.
Having an arthritic condition, I was faced with major Big Pharma or using a more natural approach to solving the problem.
Big Pharma was a more or less instant fix if I wanted to go that way. Natural was likelty to take several weeks or months.
I went with collagen and turmeric based Golden Paste (I mix my own).
It took a bit more than two months to see very significant relief.
However, there are zero bad effects from the regimen I chose. No need for quarterly liver/kidney function testing, no monthly blood panels to be drawn. Nothing.
This collagen as no discernible flavor and it mixes very well in my morning or lunch smoothie. The price is pretty good for one month supply and no complaints at regarding how it affects me. I hope this was helpful
I've tried many, many collagen powders, and this is a good one. It's a pretty much flavorless off-white powder that dissolves easily in hot or cold liquids and digests easily. I mostly put mine in smoothies, but also like to use this in soups and stews to add some nutrition to broth. This is at a competitive price for similar products on amazon, so is a good value.
