On a quest to find the best collagen for you? When it comes to collagen products, there’s many different types of collagen available, and not all collagen is created equal, so where on earth do you start? We hear you and we’re here to guide you into the collagen that’s right for you. Before we get into the nitty gritty of which types of collagen are best, and what the difference is between our Collagen Beauty, Collagen Beauty Tablets, Collagen Body and Collagen Build, it’s best to begin with an understanding of what collagen actually is. Already know your collagen facts? Skip down to our collagen quiz to help you find the right product for you! 

So what is collagen?

Collagen is the main structural protein found in connective tissue (which is one of the 4 basic tissue types found in all animals and humans). Collagen is basically the glue that holds our skin, bones, muscles and connective tissue together. As we age, our collagen production slows down, rude right? Contributing to wrinkling, sagging, dry skin, dull hair, weak nails, brittle bones and a loss of muscle mass. 


How is our collagen range different?

Every molecule within our collagen range serves a unique and specialised purpose, that is further amplified through synergistic wholefood nutrients. Together, our collagen blends provide the most powerful targeted benefits, backed by science, without compromising on our natural, wholefood ethos. No fillers to bulk up the product, no artificial additives, and no cheap ingredients. Only the most pure, premium, bioavailable ingredients that actually do what they claim.

What makes our collagen products different (from each other, but also from other collagen products on the market) is the collagen source we use, the types of collagen, and how the collagen fibres have been broken down. The way that collagen fibres are broken down affects the size of the protein peptide chains and the sequence of amino acids in each peptide chain. Further, the unique collagen peptides in our three collagens have all been researched through randomised, double blind, placebo controlled studies, and they are the only specialised, bioavailable collagen peptides on the market. Now that you know that, everything else will make a lot more sense!

All three of our collagens contain Types I and III bovine collagen, which is the most effective and most sustainable form of collagen. There are 16 different types of collagen found in humans and animals, and Types I and III have the greatest impact on skin, bones and muscles. The main difference between our three collagens is the Bioactive Collagen Peptides (smaller collagen peptide chains) found in each one, which target collagen formation in specific areas of the body. With this in mind, find a question below that suits your main concern and follow the prompts to find the right collagen for you. You can read a more in depth description of each collagen below the quiz.

If you are still unsure on which collagen is right for you, please see below for further descriptions. 


Collagen Beauty

Collagen Beauty contains the specialised bioactive peptides called Verisol®, which specifically targets skin, and has been proven through research to reduce wrinkles, smooth fine lines, increase skin hydration, improve skin elasticity, and improve the structural integrity of skin over the entire body. Every 12g serve of Collagen Beauty contains 2.5g of Verisol® Collagen Peptides, as this is the specific dose that has been found to be effective in studies. We have also included the wholefood sources of vitamin C and zinc, which help with the structure and function of connective tissue, promote healing, support gut health, further support collagen formation, and support healthy hair and nails. We’ve also added the naturopathic herb horsetail for more hair support. The rest of Collagen Beauty is made up of more hydrolysed collagen! This provides a good source of protein, and plenty of building blocks for more collagen synthesis. Collagen Beauty is the one you should pick if your priorities are glowing, hydrated, silky smooth skin, lush hair and strengthened nails. 

Our Collagen Beauty range comes in unflavoured, flavoured (Waterberry, Tropical, Wildflower and Lemon Lime) and dissolves into any hot or cold liquid. They are all pregnancy, breastfeeding, and child friendly for 12 months +.

 

Collagen Beauty Tablets

Collagen Beauty Tablets are great on the go, or should we say ‘on the glow’. The formulas in these tablets are ever so slightly different to that of Collagen Beauty powders. Both products offer benefits to skin, hair, nails and gut health backed by scientific evidence, and all active ingredients are from wholefoods. We recommend you choose the product which is most convenient for you to use consistently. 

Collagen Beauty Tablets decrease skin ageing factors after 8 weeks of use, plus:

  • Support skin elasticity & healing
  • Increase skin hydration
  • Maintain nail strength & thickness
  • Maintain hair health
  • Support healthy gastrointestinal function


Key differences between Collagen Beauty Powders vs Tablets:

  • All contain exactly 2500mg of the bioactive collagen ingredient Verisol
  • The tablets contain different wholefood sources of vitamin C and zinc, acerola instead of camu camu and chamomile to support gut health instead of horsetail herb.

Always read the label & follow the directions for use. 

Collagen Body 

Collagen Body contains the specialised bioactive peptides called Fortibone®, which specifically targets bone strength and structure. Every 18g serve contains 5g of Fortibone® Collagen Peptides, as that is the dose that has been found to be effective in clinical trials. The complementary wholefood nutrients calcium and vitamin D have also been included to further target and support bone density. And again, the rest of the product is made up of more hydrolysed collagen! Collagen Body is the one for you if you have recently broken any bones or are concerned with the strength of your bones.

 

Collagen Build

Collagen Build contains the specialised bioactive peptides called Bodybalance®, which specifically targets muscle tone, repair and building. Every 18g serve contains 15g of Bodybalance® Collagen Peptides, which is the dose that has been found to be effective in clinical studies. We have also included a wholefood source of magnesium to further support proper functioning of muscle tissue and energy production. Collagen Build is the one for you if you are looking to increase strength and repair muscles.

 

 

So there you have it. Those are our three specialised collagen products, each containing the only researched collagen peptides on the market that target the specific areas of collagen within your body. Choose your collagen based on what your priorities are, and if you are keen on more than one, we recommend taking turns with which product you take. Choose one, and take it daily for two or three months, then change it up and focus on a different goal for the next few months. You won’t lose progress on one while you focus on another!
