Here are some of the questions I get asked the most:
WHAT DOES PURE BASTION MEAN?
Pure - free from inferior or external matter
Bastion - defending and protecting a quality or condition
Essentially it's a fancy way of saying 'Pure Defence'.
HOW DO I TAKE IT?
Just pop a heaped teaspoon daily into your coffee, tea, cereal, smoothie, milk, juice etc and give it a good stir. It dissolves really easily in any liquid.
WHAT DOES IT TASTE LIKE?
It is totally tasteless.
CAN I TAKE IT IF I'M DIETING?
Yes, it's calorie-free.
SHOULD I ALSO TAKE VITAMIN C TO AID IN ABSORPTION?
There are studies that suggest that it does help to take Vitamin C in conjunction with collagen, but it's totally up to you. We see the results without vitamin C but it can't hurt!
IS IT SAFE?
Yes. Our products are all listed and approved on the TGA complimentary medicines register and are all tested and approved prior to release from the manufacturer. The reason we can make claims on the efficacy is that there have been many trials done on the products.
DOES IT WORK?
Yes. I have personally been using Verisol & Fortigel collagen powder for over 10 years now and I'm very happy to say that at 49, I have not yet (never say never) tried botox or fillers etc. My wrinkles smooth out instantly after smiling, frowning etc. People comment on my skin regularly.
HOW LONG UNTIL I SEE RESULTS?
If you take your Pb. Collagen Powder daily, you should see and feel results after about 2-4 weeks.
WHAT IS THE IMAGERY ON THE PACKAGING?
Tom Roschi photographed the amazingly toned and muscular bodies of 2 x dancers (Zoe & Kimball) from the Adelaide Dance Theatre. The shoot was art directed by Abra @ Detour Design.
WHAT DOES THE AUST L NUMBER MEAN ON THE PACKAGING?
AUST L 346617 is our Active Collagen's TGA registered listing on the ARTG - (Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods)
AUST L 346618 is our Beauty Collagen's TGA registered listing on the ARTG - (Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods)
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TAKE IT?
Every single day!
WHAT IS IN IT?
100% pure collagen peptide powder. Nothing else. No other ingredients.
WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?
Our collagen powder is manufactured in a world-class facility in Germany and supplied to us directly via their Australian operations. Both our Beauty & Active Collagens are from a bovine source. Our collagens are packaged in a safe, secure and TGA approved facility and lab tested before release.
IS IT SUITABLE FOR VEGANS & VEGETARIANS?
Not at the moment, as it's from a bovine source, but we are working on this... watch this space!
