The must-haves in a Collagen supplement

The must-haves in a Collagen supplement

Collagen is a super beneficial NATURAL superfood that can be helpful to many people to solve ALOT of issues around skin, hair, nail, gut and joint health. But it can be so confusing to know what Collagen supplement to pick with so much choice out there. Here are some must-haves when looking to purchase a Collagen supplement....


👍🏼 Use one made with Type I Collagen

There are over 28 different types of Collagen. Type I Collagen makes up over 90% of your body's collagen and is the main type in your skin. Supplementing with this type gives the biggest 'bang for buck' and the biggest result.


👍🏼 Is hydrolysed

In order for Collagen to be absorbed and used efficiently by your body it needs to be hydrolysed into the smallest size possible. This makes it resistant to  gastrointestinal enzymes in your gut and allows it to pass easily through your digestive tract into your bloodstream so it can be used by your body.


 👍🏼 Collagen is best from a marine source

Choose a marine source, unless allergic or pregnant.  Type 1 Marine Collagen peptides is thought to be 150% more efficiently absorbed by the body compared to bovine or porcine collagen. This is because of its small particle size which allows the Collagen to enter your bloodstream to be used by various parts of the body.


👍🏼 Contains Vitamin C

Vitamin C helps the absorption of the Collagen in your supplement! It also has a heap of other amazing functions, including fighting cell damage and helping to stimulate cells called Fibroblasts to produce your own Collagen.
