 Charlie Bailes is the CEO & founder of CB Supplements, a company specialising in helping people thrive with multi-collagen protein products. As a collagen expert, he often talks about its nutrition benefits on different podcasts (B2B Growth) to help people solve various health issues from joint recovery and productivity to even sleeping better at night.

He’s also a husband, a dad of 3, a crossfitter, and a health nut (obviously). He loves meeting new people and having meaningful conversations. His main goal is to inspire others to act to help themselves.

He can bring value to any audience that’s interested in health and biohacking topics, entrepreneurship, and, in general, living a higher-quality life.  Charlie is also a 4th generation family member and a top executive in a 9-figure family-owned business.

We find out how an act of a friend completely changed the health of Charlie’s family, especially for his sick daughter. What started out as joining his friend in eliminating gluten in his diet, led to further investigation and a steep learning curve on nutrition, health and wellbeing. Through his learning he stumbled on Dr Cate Shanahan and the importance of collagen. Charlie is now the founder and partner of CB Supplements which produces the only NSF approved multi-collagen supplement.

Charlie's Top Tips

  1. Avoid vegetable fats at all costs.
  2. Don’t forget about protein.
  3. Don’t forget about collagen.

Quotes by Charlie Bailes

“Leanne and I kind of said, enough and we just started to do our own research.”

“What the heck is a food sensitivity test? And why is it important?”

“Once you have somebody who's smaller than you that you helped create, and you're like, ‘Oh, this is real responsibility’, now, you have a completely different perspective.”

That's our ultimate goal. Just to bring health to the family. 

So it just dawned on me too, that like, I don't think I was ever lactose intolerant. I think I just had a leaky gut.” 

“As I'm starting to figure this out, maybe that's why I fixed my leaky gut, because I helped the collagen in my small intestine rebuild and regrow.”

“It was a catalyst for seeing the need in the diet, that we all need more collagen, and that it's just a different protein than eating a chicken breast.”
