Ingredients

Collagen

Collagen, a protein typically found in skin, hair, nail, and bone, is primarily sourced from animal products such as beef or fish. Many consumers don’t realize collagen is found in consumer products today, e.g. gelatin.

While there is no vegan and non-GMO source of collagen, there are a few ways to support your body’s natural collagen production.

Cholesterol

HDL, or high-density lipoprotein, is known as “good” cholesterol. HDL carries cholesterol throughout your body to your liver, which then “recycles” it in bile form into the digestive tract.

LDL, or low-density lipoprotein, is what’s known as “bad” cholesterol. High levels of LDL has been linked to the buildup of plaque in arteries as well as other health issues.

Ingredients to Avoid

Carrageenan

  • Carrageenan is used to emulsify and thicken drinks and foods and can often be added to oat milks and nut milks. Carrageenan is also common in vegetarian and vegan products – used in place of gelatin. Carrageenan is a natural additive which comes from red seaweed.
  • Debate around the safety of carrageenan has been ongoing since the 1960s, as some evidence has shown links with digestive system impairment in the form of bloating, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and food allergies. Carrageenan has also been linked to inflammation which contributes to a number of disorders such as arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
  • Carrageenan should be food-grade but carrageenan which has degraded becomes carcinogenic. Degraded carrageenan is not approved to use in food but testing of food-grade carrageenan has found a percentage of the samples to be degraded carrageenan. [Ref: Carrageenan in Oak Milk]
