Tried it Tuesday: Further Food Collagen Peptides

At Expo West, collagen products were all the rage. Some of the supplements’ purported benefits include decrease in joint pain, clear skin, shiny hair and stronger nails. People also report better digestion and decrease in stomach issues.

I was contacted by Further Food to see if I would try their collagen peptides. They are a new “food as medicine” company. A portion of their proceeds are given back to fund community Food-as-Medicine educational programs and other healthy eating non-profit initiatives.

Further Food updated their branding and packaging. I love the new look!

This unflavored collagen powder is grass-fed, pasture-raised, Paleo-friendly, non-GMO and 100% pure. It dissolves in hot and cold liquids with no flavor or texture, and you can cook and bake with it. You can add it to a variety of foods and drinks as it has no taste. Further Food has a ton of great recipes. They’ve received positive feedback from people who use it to help with chronic illness symptoms such as gut and joint pain, and others who love the benefits for their skin and nails.

So, does it work? I’ve been adding a scoop to my morning coffee for the last few weeks. I can’t say conclusively if it’s helped, but I have gotten a lot of compliments on how shiny my hair is. Last week, my trainer complimented how great my skin looks, too! I’ve also been paying attention to my digestion and I think I’ll keep using it.

One of the benefits of collagen is that it keeps you feeling full. One thing that I need and am interested in is a “sugar detox.” Further Food offers a free 7 day sugar detox program. The next session is May 15 – 21. Who’s with me? Get the 411 here. They have a “7 day detox meal plan” and great recipes to support the challenge here.

Want to try it for yourself? You can get Further Food Collagen Peptides online (get 10% off with the code ERICAFINDS10) or at Amazon (it’s an “Amazon Choice” product!) You can keep up with Further Food on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.

Please note: I was given a free sample of Further Food Collagen Peptides in exchange for editorial consideration. I was not otherwise compensated for this post. All opinions are my own.



  1. I would love to try their collagen peptides and compare to Vital Proteins–you know how much I loved those!

  2. Do you notice any difference between this brand and Vital Proteins?

  3. I have never heard of this. But it sounds like a great product. I would try anything that would benefit my skin. I have such dry skin in the summer and winter.

  4. Erin R. says:

    I wonder if I should try this? I reacted poorly to a new prescription at the beginning of the year and now all my hair is falling out. Nightmare. I need to figure out how to get it to grow back in nice and strong once it’s done falling. (Please, god, stop falling soon.)

      Yes! You should. It’s worth a try and it’s all natural. Check out the website and see if there is anything specific that relates to hair loss specifically. They have a bunch of condition specific stuff.

  5. Amy Scott says:

    We started drinking a collagen protein mix/powder from Costco awhile back, and I am now taking a supplement from Hammer (tissue rejuvenator) that includes it. So far I think it helps- if nothing else, I no longer had to take much ibuprofren with my injury. I think it would be a good idea to try something like that mixed in coffee or a smoothie, though.

  6. Amber Ludwig says:

    Oooh this is very interesting!! I am interested in the fact that it can help with digestive health. Something I struggle with regularly and would love to overcome or manage somehow! I will have to give this a try!! Good luck with your sugar detox! My hubby’s sister does them all the time and they can be such a struggle for her but it works fabulously for getting rid of those nasty sugar cravings!!

  7. I signed up for the sugar detox. I so need it.

    I just got some of this NOT this brand

  9. ellen beck says:

    I have heard of course of collagen, and know it is the rage but never tried it. I think if it is natural and you have spoke with a Dr or pharmacist and it dosnt react if youre on a drug it would be a good thing.

  10. CalviN F. says:

    Interesting product, I have never tried this before.
