Grass Fed and Finished

Our point of difference

The Aussie Gelatin Company doesn’t  blend with inferior or cheaper ingredients. All our Collagen comes from 100% Grass Fed and Finished Beef Cattle. If it’s not 100% Grass Fed and Finished it’s not the best.

Cattle are meant to eat grass and not grains. A large percentage of the cattle population around the world are fed grains, growth hormones and chemicals to rapidly promote weight gain. Cattle fed grains aren’t as healthy as grass fed animals. Grain fed animals are more likely to get sick and need antibiotics, to treat and prevent diseases from the grain diets and environmental conditions that they are subjected to. Cattle fed grains and confined to feedlots are rejected by The Aussie Gelatin Company.

Bone Broths

NESPROTEINS BONE BROTH HEALTH BENEFITS

Bones contain an abundance of minerals as well as 17 different amino acids, many of which are found in broth as proteins like collagen and gelatin. Though the exact nutritional content varies based on the bones used, cooking time, and cooking method, the following nutrients are consistently found in most bone broths.

Bone Broth Benefits – Collagen
With 28 different types, collagen makes up about 30 percent of the protein in your body (4) and is the main component of connective tissues like cartilage, ligaments, tendons, bone, and skin. It is also present in the blood vessels, cornea, and lens of the eye. The name collagen comes from the Greek “kólla,” meaning “glue, and the suffix “-gen,” which means “producing.” In fact, early glue was made from collagen more than 8,000 years ago, likely by boiling the skin and sinews of animals (5). In addition to providing structure, collagen also plays an important role in tissue development and regulation (67).

Bone Broth Benefits -Gelatin
When collagen is simmered, it forms gelatin. This hydrolysis of collagen is irreversible and results in the breakdown of long collagen protein fibrils into smaller protein peptides. However, its chemical composition is very similar to its parent molecule, collagen (8). Gelatin is what gives bone broth or stock its Jell-O-like consistency once it has cooled.

Bone Broth Benefits -Glycosaminoglycans
Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are complex carbohydrates that participate in many biological processes. They can attach to proteins in order to form proteoglycans, which are integral parts of connective tissue and synovial fluid, the lubricant that surrounds the joint (9). If the connective tissue, such as tendons, ligaments, and cartilage, is still attached, the bones in broth will provide our bodies with the whole spectrum of GAGs, including keratan sulfates, dermatan sulfates, chondroitin sulfates, and hyaluronic acid, which are the raw materials for skin, bone, and cartilage formation.

Bone Broth Benefits -Glycine
Glycine is an amino acid that makes up more than a third of collagen. It also acts as a neurotransmitter, binding to glycine receptors present throughout the nervous system and peripheral tissues. Signaling through this receptor is particularly important in mediating inhibitory neurotransmission in the brainstem and spinal cord (1011).

Bone Broth Benefits -Proline
Proline is an amino acid that makes up about 17 percent of collagen. The addition of hydroxyl groups to proline significantly increases the stability of collagen and is essential to its structure. Though small amounts of proline can be manufactured in the body, evidence shows that adequate dietary proline is necessary to maintain an optimal level of proline in the body (1213). Proline is not typically thought of as a neurotransmitter, but it is able to weakly bind to glutamate receptors and glycine receptors (14).

Bone Broth Benefits -Glutamine
Glutamine is yet another important amino acid found in bone broth and is the most abundant amino acid in the blood (15). It is one of the few amino acids that can directly cross the blood–brain barrier (16). Intestinal epithelial cells and activated immune cells eagerly consume glutamine for cellular energy (1718).

Bone Broth Benefits -Bone marrow
Inside the center cavity of the bone is the bone marrow, consisting of two types, red and yellow. Both types contain collagen. Red bone marrow is the site of manufacturing for new immune cells and red blood cells, while yellow marrow consists of healthy fats (1920). It is thought that important nutritional and immune support factors might be extracted from marrow during cooking, but the bioavailability of these factors has not been studied.

Bone Broth Benefits -Minerals
Bone is also full of minerals, including calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, and zinc (21). An acidic medium is necessary to extract these minerals from food. When making broth, always add a splash of vinegar or other acid in order to extract the most minerals from the bone.

What is the difference between Collagen and Gelatin

Gelatin is extracted from connective tissue and bones using special processing equipment. It’s
amino acid profile is the same as collagen hydrolysate however, the amino acids are still bound
together and are much longer in length, with the properties being slightly different. Gelatin will only
dissolve in hot liquids. Once this liquid cools, the gelatin will form a gel and set firm. It is ideal for gut
health and repair, appetite regulation and weight loss due to its slower absorption and longer amino
acid chains. It will also provide the same health benefits of Collagen Hydrolysate, however a lower
proportion of the amino acids make it to the cellular level.

Gelatin can be used in:
*Hot or cold beverages (provided gelatin is bloomed).
*Making healthier fruit or vitamin enriched jelly snacks for the family.
*Thicken sauces, soups, gravies and stews.
*Baking as a binder.
*Making luscious shower jelly soaps and face masks.

How to drink gelatin for the health benefits.
Place 1 tablespoon of gelatin in a glass and stir in in approx. 75ml of cold water, mix for 1 min to
allow gelatin to bloom, then heat in microwave for 20 sec and sir, this dissolves the gelatin. Now add
another 75ml of your favourite cold beverage and drink immediately. The solution must remain at
room temperature otherwise it will begin to gel and become lumpy.
Collagen hydrolysate is a gelatin which has been broken down to remove the bonds between the
proteins. The smaller molecular weight of these peptides make it very easy for our body to absorb
quickly (over 90% absorption rate). Collagen hydrolysate dissolves in both hot and cold liquids and
will not gel at all. It can be considered as a super supplement due to its effectiveness, versatility and
multitude of uses. Add it to hot or cold drinks, shakes, recipes, meals, health bars, yoghurts and so
on. For people who do not consume enough protein, Collagen Hydrolysate is one of the best ways
to boost your intake. Simply add a tablespoon to your smoothie and your all set.
It is considered more of a “Nutritional supplement”, and not only is it easier to incorporate into your
diet, it has a greater bioavailability compared to gelatin making it the preferred choice for anti-aging,
joint pain, sports supplementation, injury recovery and so on.
Collagen – Types 1, 2, & 3

Although there are at least 16 different varieties of collagen in the human body, the three most
abundant are Types 1,2 and 3. These three account for between 80-90% of the total collagen within
the body (Type 1 accounts for 90% of this total). It is important to note that even though the sources
may vary, they all still offer similar health benefits due to the amino acid profile.
Type 1: The most common, and strongest collagen in the body. This is responsible for the formation of
ligaments, tendons, skin, organs, and bones. It is extremely important in the healing of wounds,
Type 1 Collagen is what provides skin its stretchy, elastic properties. It is also found within the GI tract.
(Type 1 is found in our Collagen Hydrolysate and Gelatin)
Type 2: Primarily found in connective tissue, Cartilage, bone and bone marrow. This is very important for joint
and arthritis related symptoms. It is anti-inflammatory and a strong immunity booster, hence the tradition
of consuming chicken broth when sick. (Type 2 is predominately found in our Bone Broth)
Type 3: Typically found alongside Type 1 Collagen, Type 3 is a major building block of the extracellular
matrix that forms our skin and organs. Important for building the tissue and blood vessels within the
heart, Type 3 Collagen deficiency is linked to a higher risk for ruptured blood vessels and early death.
(Type 3 is found in our Collagen Hydrolysate and Gelatin)

Collagen hydrolysate is a gelatin which has been broken down to remove the bonds between the proteins. The smaller molecular weight of these peptides make it very easy for our body to absorb quickly (over 90% absorption rate). Collagen hydrolysate dissolves in both hot and cold liquids and will not gel at all. It can be considered as a super supplement due to its effectiveness, versatility and multitude of uses. Add it to hot or cold drinks, shakes, recipes, meals, health bars, yoghurts and so on. For people who do not consume enough protein, Collagen Hydrolysate is one of the best ways to boost your intake. Simply add a tablespoon to your smoothie and your all set.

It is considered more of a “Nutritional supplement”, and not only is it easier to incorporate into your diet, it has a greater bioavailability compared to gelatin making it the preferred choice for anti-aging, joint pain, sports supplementation, injury recovery and so on.

The main 6 amino acids in Gelatin and Collagen Hydrolysate

Collagen and Gelatin contains 19 amino acids, predominantly glycine, proline & hydroxyproline,
which together represent around 45% of the total amino acid profile.

Glycine (19.3%) Promotes muscle growth, repairs and protects joints and cartilage, improves
digestion, slows the effect of aging and boosts the immune system, calms the nerves and feeds the
brain, helps fight fatigue, promotes restful sleep and helps increase red blood cell production.

Proline (12.3%) Accelerates the regeneration of muscles, tendons and revitalises joints, maintains
healthy skin, bones and other tissues. It is also involved in the strengthening of heart muscle.

Hydroxyproline (11.6%) Plays a key role in collagen stability, gives strength to bones, tendons,
cartilage and skin. It is used to make collagen, tendons, ligaments and heart muscle.

Alanine (7.6%) Is involved in the energy supply to muscle tissue, the brain and the central nervous
system. It also plays a role in the metabolism of sugars, and strengthens the immune system
through its contribution in the formation of antibodies. Reduces the level of acidity in the body.

Arginine (7.4%) Contributes in the stimulation of the immune system, involved in the wound
healing process and hormone secretion. Helps to convert fats into muscle mass and energy,
accelerates wound healing and damaged tissue repair, helps form collagen for healthy tendons and
ligaments, diminishes blood urea levels, improves production of proteins for muscle growth.

Glutamic acid (8.8%) Is not only an important stimulating neurotransmitter, but also accelerates
the healing of ulcers and helps to fight fatigue

How much should I take and for how long?

For general health and wellbeing we suggest starting off with 1 heaped teaspoon per day for 4
to 5 days and then gradually increase to 1 tablespoon (12 grams) per day. The health improvements
will last as long as you continue supplementing with Collagen.
For Strength training and athletes who require a higher protein diet. Take one heaped
tablespoon twice a day.
For weight control and appetite regulation using Gelatin. We recommend consuming 1
heaped teaspoon in a drink 2-3 times per day or when a sugar craving starts to take hold.
There is little evidence to suggest any adverse side effects from consuming Collagen or Gelatin. Users
should always use their discretion and seek professional advise prior to consuming on a regular basis
or in larger quantities than suggested. If any underlying health conditions exist or if pregnant please
consult with your Doctor as a normal precautionary measure.

The health benefits and why it is Important to take additional collagen

1. Healthy Ageing

Aging is a natural part of life and there are certain measures we can take to slow down this process and also assist in reducing the negative impacts of the aging process. Collagen has proven to be effective in maintaining our mobility and health by:

  • Improving joint functioning and pain reduction
  • Supporting healthy bones
  • Promoting lean muscle retention
  • powerful antioxidant
  • Improving joint mobility
  • Helping to balance hormones
  • Promoting more restful sleep
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Helping with arthritis and osteoarthritis
  • Helping with weight management and hunger control

 

2. Natural Beauty and Skin Care

In our mid 20’s we stop producing Collagen and by our 30’s we start to lose collagen at a rate of 1 to 2% per year. This is when we start to notice that our skin is no longer as smooth or elastic as it was during our youth. Collagen has been demonstrated to be effective for the health of our skin, hair and nails by:

  • Increasing the collagen structure and density of the dermis layer, promoting skin elasticity, enhancing the hydration and moisture content of skin cells
  • Helping reduce the severity of stretch marks
  • Helping repair the day to day damage to the surface layer of the skin
  • Promotes healthy hair, reduces shedding and promotes thicker, stronger and fuller hair
  • Arginine helps generate strong nails and prevents brittle nails from occurring
  • Reduced fine lines and keeps the skin plump for longer.

 

3. Weight loss and management

Collagen Peptides have a much greater satiating effect compared to other forms of protein. It will help reduce appetite and cravings. It will also help decrease the amount of food that you consume. Taking Collagen or   Gelatin will facilitate people reaching their fitness and weight goals much easier.

 

4. Sports Nutrition (see Difference between Collagen and Whey Protein)

  • Assists with muscular contractions by synthesizing creatine resulting in strength gains and muscle          hypertrophy
  • Muscle restoration: will promote the recovery and repair of muscle tissue from strenuous exercise
  • Helps stimulate the release of growth hormones from the pituitary gland
  • Strengthens connective tissue and thus helping prevent injuries.
  • Regenerates cartilage and reduces joint pain and inflammation
  • Speeds up recovery from injury, trauma or surgery

 

5. Joint and Bone Health

Collagen stimulates Osteoblasts that helps build and strengthen bones, promotes cartilage renewal and will assist with arthritis and osteoarthritis by reducing inflammation and pain.

 

6. Gut Health

  • Improving gut health and the complications that arise from this condition eg. leaky gut syndrome
  • Boosting immunity
  • Reduces gut inflammation due to poor dietary choices
Sports Supplementation: The difference between Collagen and Whey Protein

Whey Protein has traditionally been the go to protein for many athletes. It contains all of the essential amino acid along with an array of non essential amino acids . It has a proven track record in bodybuilding and strength based training. Some of the side effects and health issues documented include: becoming gassy and bloating when taken regularly, it is unsuitable for people who are lactose intolerant, can cause indigestion problems and regular consumption can result in kidney disorders including kidney stones.

Collagen Hydrolysate is fast becoming a superior alternative to Whey Protein, as it provides a significant number of additional athletic and health benefits. Collagen contains 8 of the 9 essential amino acids and even though it has a lower percentage of leucine, which aids in muscle mass, Collagen Hydrolysate contains a much higher proportion of arginine, resulting in greater creatine formation which promotes strength gains due to higher power output whilst training. Collagen has the added benefit of strengthening connective tissue and tendons to minimise sports   injuries.  Collagen Hydrolysate is much easier on the stomach, will not cause the bloating and gas build up in the intestine and because it is not from a dairy source, it is suitable for lactose intolerant people.

The Hydrolysis of Gelatin means that the amino acids have been broken down into very small peptide chains and require virtually no digestion, this allows it to be rapidly absorbed into the blood stream and then throughout the body providing your muscles with protein when it needs it. The bioavailability of these peptides is at over 90% meaning  your cells are able to receive and utilise basically all of the protein consumed.

 

The additional athletic and health benefits of Collagen Hydrolysate:

  • Speeds up recovery times from exercise. Collagen helps combat the oxidation, micro tears of muscle fibers and the inflammatory response due to exercise
  • Reduces injury time and strengthens connective tissue such as bones, ligament, tendon, muscle    fibers thus helping to prevent injuries when taken regularly
  • Reduces joint pain and inflammation
  • Stimulates Chondrocytes which generates cartilage cell formation
  • Arganine helps stimulate the release of growth hormones from the pituitary glands which will assist in strength gains
  • Stimulates osteoblast production for bone strength
  • Helps with arthritis and osteoarthritis
  • Is a very effective antioxidant and promotes good cardiovascular health
  • It is 40% more satiating  than Whey Protein or Casein. This makes it ideal for athletes wanting to reduce body fat and develop strength and size
  • The high levels of glycine, proline & hydroxyproline make it one of the best anti-aging supplements available
  • Promotes gut health and is effective in treating leaky gut issues
  • Helps regulate hormones
  • Promotes more restful sleep patterns
  • Very effective in helping people reach health and body fat goals as it stimulates fat metabolism and regulates hunger and sugar cravings
  • Helps boost the immune system particularly after strenuous exercise where athletes become vulnerable to illness
