Vegan Nutrition

Boswellia, also known as Indian Frankincense, is an herbal extract taken from the Boswellia serrata tree. Resin made from boswellia extract has been used for centuries in Indian medicine to treat chronic inflammatory illnesses, as well as a number of other health conditions.

Amandean's Boswellia Serrata Extract is sourced from India (not China like many competitor brands).

Our Boswellia Serrata is extracted from the premium third harvest of the gum resin, which is considered to be the highest grade and have the most effective natural health results on inflammation and joint pain.

A potent 65% concentration of boswellic acids is in each 500g veggie cap.

Our Boswellia Serrata Extract is Vegan-friendly and also soy-free.

The boswellia tree creates a precious resin, long used in perfumes and natural medicines. Oil produced from this resin is called frankincense and is often used for it's health benefits in the form of oil or incense.

Boswellia serrata extract is from the gum resin of the boswellia tree and is certainly one of the most effective pain inhibitors of 5-LOX inflammation.

The recommended dosage of our Boswellia Serrata is 1 tablet, 1-2 times daily, preferably with a meal.

Our Liposomal Vitamin C has a peak particle size of 85 nm (nanometers) with over 90% of the particles being between 50 and 170 nm. This allows for the the liposomes to pass through the intestinal wall and into the bloodstream

What is LET?

LET stands for Liposomal Encapsulation Technology – it’s the term used to describe the delivery system that delivers Vitamin C nutrients directly to your cells.

What is a Liposome?

Liposomal Encapsulation Technology (LET) allows for more effective delivery of nutrients (Vitamin C) directly into the cells, rather than having to be absorbed the conventional way through transport proteins. This delivery system results in higher bioavailability and increased absorption, making Liposomal Vitamin C much more effective.

Amandean's Liposomes are created using a class of essential phospholipids called Phosphatidylcholine (pronounced FOSS fah tie dal KO lean), sourced from the highest quality, non-GMO sunflower oil lecithin.

No. Our Liposomal Vitamin C is in an easy-to-use liquid format that is not associated with any digestive discomfort, even at high dosages.

As we recommend with all supplements, it is suggested you consult your physician before use.

Take 5 milliliters (one teaspoon) daily, or as directed by your healthcare provider. Pregnant or lactating women, and persons under 18 years of age should consult their physician prior to use of this product.

We recommend you use your product within two (2) years of the manufacturing date. The date stamped on the bottom of our product IS NOT THE EXPIRATION DATE. This is the date the product was manufactured. Once opened, refrigerate and use within 45 days.

Liposomal Vitamin C & Liposomal Glutathione have a naturally strong and bitter taste. Although we use natural flavor extracts to help mask the taste, we recommend mixing your daily dose with a glass of fruit juice or a smoothie. Though some customers find our product just fine to take on its own, we feel it's better to consume when mixed with another liquid.

Absolutely. We recommend combining Liposomal Vitamin C with either our Premium Grass-Fed Collagen Peptides or our Premium Anti-Aging Marine Collagen made from Wild-Caught Fish to increase collagen production and maximize anti-aging benefits. VitC helps to synthesize collagen in the body. Taken together, your skin and beauty benefits will be supercharged.

Glutathione is a tri-peptide made from three amino acids: cysteine, glutamate, and glycine. The glutathione molecule is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells by gathering and removing toxins and heavy metals from the body.

Glutathione is a safe supplement and essential for even the most basic immune function. Depleted levels of glutathione can cause serious illness. As with all our premium supplements, we recommend ALL users consult a healthcare professional before incorporating Liposomal Glutathione into their daily diet.

Liposomal Glutathione is encapsulated, which means it has been naturally “trapped” inside microscopic spheres called liposomes. Liposomes deliver the glutathione directly into the cells in the bloodstream, whereas traditional forms of glutathione are largely excreted by the body. Liposomal delivery also protects the fragile glutathione molecules from being damaged in the intestinal tract by stomach acids, allowing it to remain intact and absorbed at a higher rate. Liposomal delivery increases the bioavailability of glutathione to comparable levels with IV vitamin treatments, without a substantial price tag or the administration by needles.

At the most basic level, glutathione is essential in preventing chronic and serious illnesses. We all have consistent exposure to airborne pollutants, radiation from electronics, and heavy metals from fillings or foods, which alter the glutathione levels in our bodies to low or deficient levels. Raising your glutathione level is the number one defense against the accumulation of toxins and metals, and prevention of countless illnesses.

Can very ill people take Liposomal Glutathione?

YES. Every ill person has one thing in common no matter the illness: depleted levels of glutathione. Levels are depleted due to fighting off illness. Therefore taking a highly bioavailable form will help to replenish these levels over time. Glutathione is a basic building block for our immune system and is of critical importance when suffering from sickness or serious illness.

If I'm young & healthy, should I still consider taking Liposomal Glutathione?

Everyone can benefit from incorporating a glutathione supplement into their diet. Even if you're healthy and not managing any serious health issues, you will be promoting a strong immune system to ward off future illness, while also boosting energy levels for a more active lifestyle. The large quantity of health benefits of Liposomal GSH (glutathione) will help EVERYONE, no matter what their state of health.

How do I know if my body is deficient in glutathione levels?

If you're struggling with any illness or managing a chronic health condition, then you're more likely to be deficient in glutathione. Specific blood and urine tests are available for measuring glutathione levels. Consult your healthcare professional for more information.

Most side effects associated with taking glutathione are the good kind: more energy, a glowing complexion, and boosted immunity. On rare occasions glutathione has been associated with sweating, upset stomach, and/or diarrhea. Taking glutathione long-term has been linked to lower zinc levels. If you experience ANY of these adverse effects, consult your healthcare professional.

We suggest you pair Amandean's Liposomal Glutathione with our Liposomal Vitamin C, or our Premium Marine Collagen to enhance its powerful, anti-aging and antioxidant benefits. We even offer some great deals when you pair these products from our bundles page. With all supplements, however, we recommend that you consult your healthcare professional before combining them.

Both fish and marine algae are rich sources of EPA & DPA, which offer substantial health benefits. But, fish omega-3 does have slightly higher levels of DHA & EPA. However, fish ingest EPA/DHA from eating algae, whereas harvesting algae as the direct source means that you still retain a potent source of DHA and EPA without all the processing. The purest source of omega-3 comes from algae, not fish, and the 2 products offer almost identical benefits.

Even though omega-3’s from fish are ideally extracted from wild fish (not farmed), there is no control over what they consume in the ocean, which has become increasingly at risk. For this reason there is a higher risk of contamination from heavy metals or mercury than what occurs in plant-based omega-3 sources. Amandean’s Vegan Omega-3 oil is sourced from marine algae grown in a lab-controlled environment, where no contaminants threaten to make it unsafe. 100% of the algae we use is fed premium nutrients and it’s rigorously tested for purity under cGMP standards.

Every bottle of Vegan Omega-3 also contains small amounts of purified water, non-GMO starch, glycerin, food grade seaweed extract, rosemary oil extract (preservative), ascorbyl palmitate (fat soluble Vitamin C), and tocopherols (Vitamin E). These ingredients help to formulate the capsule, which make the delivery of EPA and DHA more bioavailable.

Vegan sources of omega-3 are more eco-friendly than fish sources, which make the product more sustainable than omega-3 from fish oils. Additionally, many customers who have switched from fish to algae sources do so to avoid fish-tasting burps, which occur from fish oil products. No more fish burps!

When shopping around for an Omega-3 supplement you might notice that many vegan varieties only contain DHA and not EPA. Amandean’s Vegan Omega-3 contains both DHA & EPA, which ensures we’re consuming a healthy balance of Omega 3 & 6 combined, the ideal ratio being approx. 1-4:1. Most western diets contain a ratio of around 1:10, and even 1:20 in some cases. What this means is, that while we’re neglecting omega-3s, which are absolutely essential to our health, we are getting a problematic excess of omega-6 fatty acids. Supplementing with a balance of the two ensures we are getting the anti-inflammatory effects, lipid mediator activity, and energy production benefits only produced when both DHA & EPA are present.

In each 500mg softgel capsule, there is 150mg of DHA and 75mg of EPA

Vegan Vitamins D3 & K2 work better together to support your heart, strengthen bones, boost your immune strength, mood and muscle function. Combining vitamin D3 with K2 helps to transport and absorb calcium in the body for healthy bone support. Taking too much Vit D3 without getting the right amount of Vit K2 can lead to problems with excess calcium, which causes buildup in arteries and muscles. Amandean's Premium Vegan formula in a carrageenan-free softgel supports graceful aging and plant-based nutrition.

Vitamin D3 (algal based) (as Cholecalciferol): 125mcg (5000 IU) from VegD3 is sustainably-sourced from lab-grown algal oil in the UK, NOT from lichen or lanolin sourced in China. It is known as the ‘sunshine vitamin’ and is produced in the skin when exposed to sunlight.

Vitamin K2 (K2VITAL®)(all-trans MK-7): 100mcg contains 99.7% all-trans MK-7, known as the purest bioactive form available.

Amandean's Vegan Vitamin D3+K2 is formulated with organic coconut oil in a carrageenan-free softgel for increased bioavailability.

Other Ingredients include: Organic Coconut Oil, Non-GMO MCT Oil, Veggie Softgel Capsule (Non-GMO Modified Tapioca Starch, Non-GMO Vegetable Glycerin, Purified Water), Natural Tocopherols (Vitamin E).

What benefits can you expect?

Immune system support, cardiovascular health, better calcium absorption, enhanced mood from vitamin D without the harmful UV rays, strong bones & reduced risk of bone fractures, increased muscle function for active lifestyles, eco-friendly ingredients for a healthy plant-based or vegan diet.

Collagen Peptides

Collagen is a protein found everywhere in our bodies, making up over 60% of our total protein. Collagen protein contains 18 amino acids, including proline, arginine, glycine, and hydroxyproline. These promote rebuilding, rejuvenation, and growth in Skin, Muscles, Hair, Joints, Nails, Hearts, Liver, Prostate, Blood, Cells, and Lungs.

Unfortunately, our body’s collagen production drops off as we grow older. By age 40, our collagen depletes faster than it is produced, and by age 60 we only produce 50% of the collagen we did at age 30. That’s a significant decrease.

Collagen peptides dissolve into liquids, meaning it can be mixed into smoothies, soups or even some baked goods. Collagen is tasteless, so your meal will be as edible as it was before

Our collagen is sourced from 100% pasture raised grass-fed South American cows. It is non-GMO and contains no gluten, wheat, corn, eggs, dairy, soy, or yeast. We rigorously tested for purity and packaged in the USA at a state-of-the-art FDA-cGMP-compliant facility.

They are enzymatically processed, which is the best way to keep the health benefits intact.

YES. Our hydrolyzed collagen is 100% all-natural collagen and free of pesticides, hormones, chemicals and contaminants. Amandean collagen contains no additives.

BSE, popularly referred to as Mad Cow Disease, has been in the news recently and prompted many collagen fans to worry about the susceptibility of their products.

The bottom line: The US Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) ensures that all animal products imported into the USA satisfy their unyielding health standards, without any health risks, following the guidelines put forth by the Organization for Animal Health (OIE). The OIE conducted a comprehensive study on BSE and its effects on bovine products like collagen and gelatin. The study revealed that there is near zero risk of BSE transmission in food products such as milk, gelatin, and other hide-based or boneless originated products.

In addition, the March 16th 2012 US Department of Agriculture report states that the manufacturing process of Gelatin and Collagen further decreases the risk of BSE infection beyond the conclusions of the OIE.

5000 Daltons for Beef Collagen

From birth, our cattle are raised on lush grasslands, giving them space, areas to graze, and freedom to roam. Stress-free cows mean a better product.

From South America, including Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay. With abundant open pastures, these countries favor grass-fed grazing for their cattle. We select the best of these farms and source our bovine hides from there.

Collagen peptides dissolve in hot or cold liquid, whereas gelatin can only mix in hot liquids but will return to its gel state once the liquid cools. In a health context they are very similar, although the shorter amino acid chains in collagen peptides are a little easier to absorb for our bodies.

The difference is the animal source of the protein. Amandean's Collagen Peptides and Beef Gelatin contain collagen protein found in grass-fed cows. It's almost identical to the kind of collagen we have in our bodies, which is what makes it such a popular and effective dietary supplement.

Marine Collagen is derived from the skins of wild-caught Atlantic fish and offers the similar health benefits as collagen from cows. Marine Collagen has shown to have up to 150% more bioavailability in humans, making it a popular choice as a supplement.

Once collagen is hydrolyzed (broken down into short chain amino acids, aka peptides), it is very difficult to actually tell the different types of collagen apart. The way that collagen supplements work is that some of the amino acids trigger a response in your body to start producing more collagen, so it’s not like you are just replacing lost collagen directly from taking the supplement itself. The main thing about the multi-collagens are in the sources of where the collagen is derived from (marine, bovine, porcine, poultry cartilage, egg shell membranes, etc.). These are different types of collagen to start with, but once it’s processed into a collagen supplement (powder, peptides, protein, hydrolysate, they are all the same), it’s really about impossible to tell the different types apart. They all contain the same 18 amino acids (albeit in slightly different ratios), so it doesn’t make that much difference, as it’s the amino acids that are prompting your body to produce more collagen.

We highly recommend that you talk with your pediatrician before introducing your children to collagen, as each child’s nutritional needs will differ.

Collagen peptides dissolve in hot or cold liquid, whereas gelatin can only mix in hot liquids but will return to its gel state once the liquid cools. In a health context they are very similar, although the shorter amino acid chains in collagen peptides are a little easier to absorb for our bodies.

Testing & Certification

Amandean doesn't have an official halal certification for our marine collagen powder, but the (only) ingredient used in our Marine Collagen is certified halal. It’s made from the skins of wild-caught cod, and manufactured in a facility that only makes fish collagen & fish gelatin. so there is no cross-contamination with any other animals. Our final packaging takes place at a cGMP certified facility in the US. Because we don’t pay for the halal certification at the time of packaging, we are precluded from claiming it as “certified”. We have chosen to forgo the expensive certification and pass the savings on to our customers instead.

All of our Amandean products are rigorously tested for quality and purity in registered U.S. facilities. We adhere to cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practices).

Most of our products have a 4-5 year shelf life. "Best by" dates are printed clearly on the bottom of each product container.

Since 2020, we've partnered with rePurpose Global in order to clean up plastic waste. This means that we remove as much plastic waste from the planet and its oceans as we use in our packaging.

A percentage of profit on each of our products goes to fund the removal and reuse of the same amount of plastic waste that is littered in nature. With Plastic Neutrality, we are able to offer our products with a Net Zero Plastic Footprint.To date, we've cleaned up over 20,000 lbsof plastic waste.

We're quality-obsessed and committed to clean ingredients. All Amandean products are selectively-sourced from non-GMO ingredients.

We don't use ANY artificial flavoring, sweeteners, or additives that compromise the health benefits of our products.

All of our products are vigorously tested at a cGMP facility to ensure the highest standards of safety & purity.

Our products are tested for metal contaminants and pollutants to ensure each formula is safe.

Yes. Grass-Fed Collagen Powder, Wild-Caught Marine Collagen, and Grass Fed Gelatin Powder are all keto-friendly formulas.

They are also suitable for paleo, bulletproof, whole30, and alkaline diets.

They contain NO sugar, dairy, soy, gluten, carbs, or fat.

Advances in nutritional science offer powerful, high-bioavailability, plant-based & synthetic equivalents to animal-sourced ingredients.

If you're experimenting with plant-based nutrition and concerned about the impact on our environment & oceans, consider our vegan products.
