What is Amaranth and what are the benefits?

Amaranth is a nutritious grain, naturally gluten-free and provides plenty of fiber, protein and micronutrients. This is great news for the gluten-intolerant and those who want a nutritious healthy meal. Amaranth has excellent health benefits, including reduced inflammation, lower cholesterol levels, increased weight loss and it is believed the fiber it contains is great for treating diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and even cancer.

We Come Highly Recommended

Collagen theory is the only Collagen product that contains green tea, grape seed and aloe vera which is great for my skin and my weight loss goals. I noticed a more radiant glow to my skin after just 2 weeks! Highly recommended!


Collagen theory’s products are now part of my beauty/fitness ritual and it is a less invasive and less expensive alternative to expensive Collagen fillers that do not last! I use a combination of Collagen theory quality products to achieve and maintain my beauty and fitness goals. The results are amazing!


I have been using Collagen for just over a year now before a friend recommended Collagen theory’s products. I find that is far more superior than all the other products I have tried in terms of overall skin and health benefits. I am happy to join the Collagen Theory Family.


I got Collagen theory SYNERGY for my gran after trying their product myself and seeing great results. She is very pleased and tells me it helped her Joint aches. I don’t suffer with joint aches myself, but I do get bloated and I feel this has helped as well as great skin, hair and nails. They are also fairly priced.


Collagen Theory is my go-to for post workout clean protein supplement. I like that it is all natural, and even the liquid is sugar free. I feel fuller in the mornings when I supplement my porridge with Collagen Theory.
