FAQs

What kind of collagen do you use?
We use collagen peptides, which have been shown to improve skin elasticity and smoothness and increase skin hydration and collagen density.

Can pregnant women take your products?
While marine collagen is generally not recommended whilst pregnant, our collagen is bovine collagen. Taking a collagen supplement will help your skin retain its elasticity, repair and also assist in the formation of new skin cells. This means that taking a collagen supplement is one of the best ways to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy and also to help your body and skin to recover postpartum.

Pregnancy and lactation also place increased nutritional demands on the pregnant woman. The need for protein also increases, for proper fetal and placental growth and development. Many women find it difficult to consume the recommended amount of protein during pregnancy. Women looking for additional protein during pregnancy may find protein powders an easy and convenient alternative to other forms of unprocessed protein. Proper healing after delivery, whether vaginal or by cesarean, requires adequate macro and micronutrients; proper nutrition pre- and post-delivery will have a positive effect on tissue healing. Patients preparing to undergo surgery also need peak immune function to prevent infection. Our 100% natural products can assist with the above nutritional needs, and also supply Vitamin C – which plays an important role in immune function and proper wound repair. That said, please always check anything that you take during pregnancy with your doctor.

Are your products Halal and Kosher?
Our bovine collagen is Halal- and Kosher-certified at the source.

Are your products child-friendly?
When used in small amounts and sparingly, our products should pose no danger to your child. However, if you have concerns, please discuss them with your pediatrician or registered dietitian. Every child has different needs and circumstances. With appropriate use, these products should be safe for young children. While we do not recommend supplements to children under the age of four, we suggest a usage of 5g or less per day for children under the age of nine.

Are your products free from gluten and dairy?
Yes, even our probiotics are dairy-free.

How do I store your products once opened?
We recommend storing opened containers in either the fridge or freezer to preserve shelf life, but a cool, dry pantry works well too.

How do your probiotics last so long?
All of the ingredients included in our products are of the highest quality, so it makes sense that we would seek out a probiotic that will provide our customers with the benefits of the best, most stable probiotic we could find. LactoSpore® is the trade name for Sabinsa's probiotic, Bacillus Coagulans. LactoSpore® withstands the acidic environment of the stomach and then germinates and proliferates in the GI tract within a few hours. Due to its spore-forming nature, LactoSpore® is resistant to most chemical and physical conditions (e.g. heat and acid) and survives manufacturing, shipping and storage, making it an excellent functional food ingredient. It does not require refrigeration conditions, and it remains stable at room temperature too.

Will heating these products damage the ingredients?
The superfoods and collagen found in our products will not be affected at all by heat. While the benefits of our probiotics may decrease slightly (studies show a decrease of 8-14%, depending on the nature of heat applied) the general integrity of the probiotic still remains intact.

Can you tell me more about the quality of your ingredients?
The superfoods used in our products are USDA certified organic. Both our probiotics and collagen carry GRAS status (Generally Recognised As Safe), and our flax is both gluten- and peanut-free.

What are superfoods?
Superfoods are any food sources that are rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, amino acids or healthy fats. These nutrients are essential for your health and well-being, and you will look and feel better when you take them regularly.

Can I use your products on a keto diet?
A standard keto diet recommends eating less than 50 grams of glycaemic carbs per day. One 15g serving of Beauty Greens provides only 1g of glycaemic carbs. Therefore you certainly can use Beauty Greens on a keto diet.

When will I start noticing the effects of collagen?
According to clinical trials, a daily intake of 5-10g of collagen per day will help to maintain the skin's hydration, firmness and elasticity (i.e. its youth and beauty). Some studies have shown that skin's hydration improves after one to two months, and several communities have demonstrated the benefits of collagen peptides for preserving joint health. Most studies show effects within three months.
