Derek's Keto-friendly Total Body Collagen is comprised of a unique mix of three patented collagen peptides supported by clinical research showing their effectiveness in supporting collagen production, bone strength, joint health and integrity, skin elasticity and more!
Collagen is a unique type of protein that accounts for as much as 30% of your body’s total protein. In particular, it is actually a primary structural component of connective tissue. The amino acid composition of dietary collagens are very similar to those in human collagens which make dietary collagen peptides which are in Total Body Collagen quite idyllic for supporting normal body collagen turnover and renewal.
In Derek’s experience as a nutritionist, most people—the elderly in particular—do not consume adequate protein. Even among those people who do tend to have a higher protein intake, the richest sources of collagen—animal skins, bone broth, and tendons — are not typically part of the modern American diet.
Derek's Total Body Collagen can be incorporated into a wide variety of smoothies, protein powders, or foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, lemonade, cocoa, non-dairy milks, healthy organic dips, salad dressings, soups, sauces, mashed potatoes/cauliflower, casseroles, and even healthy desserts.
Total Body Collagen helps support*:
- Strength of bone, tendons & cartilage
- Bone density; bone mass and quality; reduced risk of fracture
- Health & appearance of skin, improved skin elasticity, thickness and hydration
- Improved appearance of nails

Total Body Collagen is a convenient way to ensure adequate intake of collagen’s unique amino acids, and to titrate to higher doses for those who may need greater amounts, such as athletes, aging individuals, those recovering from injury, and menopausal women not on HRT.*
How to Use
As a dietary supplement, mix 13 grams (approx. one scoop) with eight ounces of water per day, or as directed by your health care practitioner. For ease of mixing and best consistency, add powder prior to adding water or other liquid. Collagen should not be the sole source of protein, but should be incorporated as part of a diet that contains various complementary proteins. It is considered non-allergenic, a property explained by the fact that it is pre-digested and consists of small peptides that do not have a tri-dimensional shape, and thus does not generally trigger protein allergies. • Collagen peptides may be added to the variety of beverages and foods as listed above.
