Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides PLUS 101

A strong, healthy, beautiful body starts on the inside -- what we eat and drink (as well as what we limit/avoid) has profound effects on how we feel, perform, recover, and look.


It comes as no surprise then that a nutritious diet is paramount to supporting a fit, vibrant lifestyle, and it also helps the body to recover faster, be it from a hard workout, illness, or lifestyle stress.

Protein is a fundamental component of a healthy diet as it supplies the essential amino acids, BCAA/EAA, to effectively repair itself, synthesize hormones/neurotransmitters, build lean muscle, and hundreds of other biological processes. No protein is more abundant in the body than collagen. It's the main structural building block of the body found prevalently in the skin, hair, nails, bones, ligaments, tendons, and blood vessels.


While the body can synthesize collagen, natural production of it declines throughout life starting in your 20's. To support collagen production, 1UP Nutrition has released an enhanced collagen supplement -- Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides Plus -- that supplies a multi-collagen complex rich in protein & amino acids as well as powerful ingredients that aid collagen synthesis, promote longevity, and support antioxidant defense across multiple fronts.

New Additions + Improvements


The new 1UP Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides PLUS carries over several familiar ingredients from the original formula, including grass-fed bovine collagen, vitamin C, and hyaluronic acid. We’ve improved the previous formula by adding a trio of formidable collagen boosters, including:


Hydrolyzed Wild-Caught Marine Collagen Peptides


Marine collagen powder is abundant in types I and III collagen, which is ideal as those two collagen types are among the most prevalent types of collagen in the body. Type I collagen isn't just for promoting healthy, vibrant skin and longevity -- it’s also a major component of joints, ligaments, tendons, organs and even bones. Type III is found alongside type I collagen, and it’s primarily located in the dermis (middle layer of skin) and aorta.



Marine collagen has been researched in both humans and animals, and it has been found possess beneficial activities, including[1,2,3]


  • Healthy blood pressure support
  • Anti-skin aging
  • Gut health
  • Longevity
  • Improved skin firmness & radiance



A recently published review covering the impact of collagen supplementation on skin and musculoskeletal health stated that, “collagen supplementation increases bone strength, density, and mass; improves joint stiffness/mobility, and functionality; and reduces pain.”[4]


As is the case with the bovine collagen, we include hydrolyzed wild-caught marine collagen peptides. The reason for this is that collagen hydrolysates offer improved digestibility over native collagen, promoting greater absorption, distribution, and utilization in the human body.[5]



For those of you concerned about any “fishy” taste or smell with marine collagen, rest easy -- Naticol is flavorless and odorless. It also mixes easily, making it a great addition to smoothies, intra-workout or post-workout shakes, soups, oatmeal, yogurt, etc.


Vitamin E


UV damage is a significant source of oxidative damage to the skin. Excessive UV light can accelerate aging as well as lead to edema, skin thickening, and wrinkling. Vitamin E is an essential vitamin that also functions as a potent antioxidant, which can help to attenuate oxidative stress, such as the kind imposed on the body by UV exposure, environmental toxins, and free radicals.[6]



Additional studies also suggest that a combination of ingredients (including vitamin E + vitamin C, both of which are included in 1UP Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides Plus) offer greater benefit than using a single ingredient supplement.[7]




Biotin (Vitamin B7) is an essential vitamin that plays a key role in the health of your hair, skin, and nails, namely supporting the production ofkeratin. Deficiency in biotin is associated with hair loss as well as scaly rashes. In addition to its hair, skin, and nail benefits, biotin may also support cardiovascular health via its actions on cholesterol and blood pressure.[8,9]



Suggested Use


1UP Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides PLUS is easily digested and soluble in hot or cold liquids. It can be mixed into 8 ounces of your favorite beverage and/or added to all manner of smoothies, shakes, coffee or other foods (protein pancakes, protein muffins, dressings, etc.) to create a nutritious and delicious way to boost your collagen intake and nourish your hair, skin, nails and joints.



Stacking Options


For added support and more vibrant, youthful-looking skin, consider stacking your daily serving of collagen with our advanced skin care formula 1UP Skin Health Plus.



For added health and wellness support, combine a serving of Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides Plus with a serving of Greens & Reds Superfoods Plus and/or Kickstart Wellness Shot.
