CHOOSE VEGAN COLLAGEN
The most common way to get collagen is from animal´s connective tissue. Hydrolysed collagen is extracted from animal from bones, skin and cartilage as well as marine waste. There is no convincing evidence to show that our bodies absorb the collagen found in gelatine-based collagen.
Animal collagen is a health risk if not carefully controlled and treated. So we highly recommend going for a plant-based option.
We've chosen hydrating plant extracts with collagen-like properties. In our attempts to encourage collagen formation through these ingredients, this could rejuvenate the skin.
The level of collagen production in our bodies is reduced by about 1.5% per year after we turn 25. This can determine the appearance of wrinkles in the skin.
·Joint function: Collagen is one of the constituent proteins of our tissues. Specifically, it is the main fibrous element of skin, teeth, bones,and cartilage. The continual decrease of collagen in our body could affect the normal function of the joints.
The result is our Collagen Plus Complex: a unique combination of 7 different plant extracts and the two amino acids L-proline and L-lysine.
- Acerola & Pomegranate: Acerola and pomegranate are known for their high vitamin C content. Among other things, this vitamin contributes to the normal formation of collagen for the normal functioning of our skin. In addition, pomegranate seeds are rich in ellagic acid and various B vitamins, whichprotect our cells from oxidative stress.
- Rosehip & tomato: Rosehip and tomato are also among the vitamin C-rich fruits. They are also characterised by their high flavonoid or carotenoid content (lycopene).
- Gojii berries: The red goji berries contain a high proportion of so-called bioactive polysaccharides.
- Ginseng & Ginkgo: In traditional Chinese medicine, ginseng and ginkgo have long been known as important plants.
- Amino acids: L-lysine and L-proline are amino acids that are needed as basic building blocks of proteins, especially in the formation of collagen.
