The Myers Way Collagen Protein: Support Hair, Skin, & Nails and a Healthy Gut
Your body’s natural production of collagen nosedives after age 35. That’s exactly why I recommend nearly everyone take a pure daily collagen supplement.
Pure Collagen Protein from Grass-fed, Pasture-Raised Beef
This Collagen is one of my absolute favorite supplements and I use it every single day! There are a lot of different collagen choices out there, and it can be really difficult to find a clean, high-quality source. That’s why I custom formulated my own hydrolyzed Collagen powder. It’s sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised beef, and is also 100% non-GMO.
Collagen Is Your Body’s Most Important Structural Protein
Collagen is the most important and abundant structural protein in your body. Think of Collagen as the ‘glue’ that holds your body together. Your skin, bones, connective tissue, cartilage, and joints all depend on ample collagen to be healthy, strong, and flexible.
Your Body Makes Less Collagen As You Age
Most of us cannot get enough Collagen from our diets alone. Even those of us eating a clean, healthy, paleo-inspired diet have trouble getting as much collagen as our distant ancestors did, let alone enough for optimal health. Unless you’ve got an 8-quart crockpot simmering bone broth from grass-fed, antibiotic-free cow bones all day every day, then you are very likely in need of a high-quality Collagen supplement!
Support Your Gut With Collagen Protein
Collagen is fantastic for those concerned with leaky gut. Collagen is full of amino acids and peptides that help maintain and promote optimal gut lining health. The cells lining your intestinal tract absolutely love this stuff, and so many of my patients report greater digestive comfort after using it. Supporting the gut lining is absolutely paramount for those concerned with autoimmunity, healthy thyroid function, and a balanced inflammatory response.
Collagen Supports Healthy Hair, Skin, and Nails
Collagen is critical if you’re looking to optimize the health of your muscles, bones, and joints, as well as your hair, skin, and nails. It’s even more important after the age of 40 when your body’s Collagen production naturally declines. Why do we get wrinkles at the age of 40? Well, a lot of that has to do with not enough Collagen to support our skin!
Type I & Type III Collagen
There are different types of Collagen out there, however, Type I & III are the most important to supplement with. My grass-fed, pasture-raised beef Collagen is pure, hydrolyzed Type I & III. These types lend all the great benefits to your skin, bones, hair, nails, and connective tissue.
Collagen supports healthy weight management by optimizing lean muscle mass. It even helps curb sugar cravings by assisting with healthy insulin production and pancreatic function. My grass-fed, hydrolyzed Collagen is also rich in conditionally essential amino acids that many of us are lacking in, such as glycine, which supports a healthy mood and restful sleep.
How To Take The Myers Way® Collagen Protein
The powder is tasteless and mixes easily into any hot or cold beverage. I love it in my morning smoothie or hot tea at night! You can add it to your favorite soup or even mix it in baked goods. Many of my patients mix into their children’s baby food and desserts!

What is Collagen?
Collagen is a hard, insoluble, and fibrous protein that makes up one-third of the protein in the human body. Your body synthesizes Collagen from special amino acids found in various foods. Our bodies also need certain minerals and vitamin C to manufacture collagen. My Collagen comes from pasture-raised cows that are grass-fed and never given GMO-feed or antibiotics.
Why is it important to use hydrolyzed Collagen?
Dietary collagen is difficult-to-digest and not very absorbable. It also mixes poorly into liquids. Hydrolyzing collagen involves breaking up the difficult to digest proteins into easily digested peptides, or chains of beneficial amino acids. This ensures far greater absorption and bioavailability. Hydrolyzing collagen also guarantees that it mixes easily into hot or cold beverages without clumping!
What time of day should I take the Collagen?
Collagen can be taken any time, day or night. I like to mix a scoop or two into my morning smoothie or add it to my hot tea before bed. It really helps support restful sleep!
How long should I take Collagen?
Collagen can be used indefinitely for the best results. Many of my patients take Collagen every day and have done so for years!
Is it safe for my child to take Collagen?
Collagen is safe for most kids, so long as they do not have a legitimate beef allergy. Collagen can help kids grow strong healthy bones and teeth! Although we recommend speaking with your pediatrician before starting any new supplements.
Is Collagen okay to take while pregnant or nursing?
Yes. Provided you are not allergic to Collagen protein from beef, on any prescribed medications that could be contraindicated, or have been advised by your physician not to take collagen for any reason, then The Myers Way® Collagen Protein is safe to use in doses recommended on the product label. If you have any concerns whatsoever, I always recommend speaking with your physician or other qualified healthcare provider.
I’ve heard collagen can contain monosodium glutamate (MSG). Does your collagen contain MSG?
Absolutely not. Collagen protein generally contains about 11% glutamic acid by weight, which is actually significantly less than beef, poultry, rice protein, and many other foods. Another important fact to be aware of is that almost all of the glutamic acid, a normal amino acid that occurs in most foods we humans eat, is bound in amino acid chains called peptides in Collagen. Very little glutamic acid in my Collagen is in its free form. What is in the free form, is most certainly not chemically bound to sodium to make MSG. In fact, Collagen contains less processed free glutamic acid than orange juice, honey, grapefruit and lemon juice, and even breast milk. To summarize, there is no MSG in my Collagen and very little free glutamic acid!
Is Collagen Protein damaged by heat?
All proteins are damaged by high heat to some extent. Proteins are long chains of amino acids bound together. High heat can potentially fold and warp the amino acid chains into new shapes and structures called amines that may be unusable by the body, or even harmful. This is why you should avoid charring or overcooking meat. The proteins and peptides in my Collagen Protein are quite stable at moderately high temps, so adding it to a hot cup of tea or coffee, or baking it at low temps (below 300 degrees) will not denature it too much.
How does Dr. Myers’ Collagen Protein differ from her Paleo Protein?
My Paleo Protein is a complete protein made from hydrolyzed beef that comes from grass-fed, pasture grazing cows raised with care in Europe. It is a diverse combination of essential and nonessential amino acids, as well as branched-chain amino acids, similar to what you would find in a high-quality steak. Complete protein is essential for muscle and tissue repair, enzyme formation, and much much more. Conversely, my Collagen Protein is a very special type of protein sourced from the hides of grass-fed, pasture roaming cows raised with care in Brazil. Collagen Protein is a special blend of primarily four amino acids that are actually quite lacking in the standard western diet. These amino acids support your own body’s ability to synthesize collagen, which is your body’s primary structural protein. Collagen is essential for a healthy gut lining, strong hair, skin, and nails, connective tissue, and much much more. My team and I are often asked which type of protein is best, and because they vary so widely in their benefits, the answer is almost always, “Both!”
How does Dr. Myers’ Collagen Protein differ from Spectrum 5 Collagen™, and can I take both together?
Short answer: YES! You can absolutely take both (I do every day!). Spectrum 5 Collagen™ delivers 8 g of 5 types of collagen from 4 real food sources in each serving: types I, II, III, V, and X, derived from wild-caught Canadian fish, free-range USA chickens, and grass-fed cows. My original Collagen Protein delivers a potent 11 g dose of types I & III collagen from 1 food source only — grass-fed cows. The robust amino acid profile of both support your own body’s ability to synthesize Collagen, which is your body’s primary structural protein. Collagen is essential for a healthy gut lining, strong hair, skin, and nails, connective tissue, and much much more!
How come there are fewer scoops in my container than the number listed on the label?
The listed amount of scoops per container is an approximation and can vary based on personal use such as how full you make your scoops, spilling it, how well you scrape out the container, etc. While the number listed is an approximation, it shouldn’t vary considerably versus what you get.
How does Dr. Myers’ Collagen Protein Capsules differ from Collagen Protein powder?
The Collagen Protein powder is amazing and perfect for smoothies and other recipes. However, you may not always have time or the ability to make a smoothie and that’s where the capsules come in. Both are sourced from the highest quality grass-fed cows, just now you have options for how you CHOOSE to take them. Collagen is essential for a healthy gut lining, strong hair, skin, and nails, connective tissue, and much much more!
