Collagen is absolutely vital to your skin and how it will age. In fact it’s important for every part of your body being the “glue” that holds everything together. However from our twenties our supply of collagen starts declining rapidly.
Make no mistake your skin needs a healthy supply of collagen
The body however, is unable to make collagen and we need to get it from our food. While bone broth is a wonderful source of collagen, it’s not always easy to have a supply on hand.
And bone broth isn’t an option for vegetarians and vegans
Well thanks to the wonderful people at Rejuvenated, there is now a full range of Collagen boosting products that cater for everyone.
They have now even brought out a collagen supplement for vegans
Their range now includes supplements for those who eat animal protein, vegetarians and vegans. I don’t know of any other company that does this.
Here’s the low down on their 3 different collagen products:
Derived from marine collagen, this is one of my top secrets for maintaining firm skin. I’ve used this for a number of years now and have often talked about it on Ageless. Containing vitamins C and B as well as hyaluronic acid and copper, this powder that you mix with water to form a pleasant tasting drink, is a powerhouse of goodness for your skin. You can see a visible difference in hair and nails, and a subtle difference to the texture and firmness of skin.
These supplements are the vegetarian version of Collagen Shots. Using a patented extract which combines collagen derived from egg proteins with over 500 other ingredients, it promotes smoother skin and protects from oxidative stress.
Skin Perfecting Complex
This is the vegan version and is the result of many years of experience in producing collagen products at Rejuvenated. With no other vegan product on the market, they wanted to find an alternative for their many vegan customers. This led to the development of their patent pending formulation, Botani-col which is a fusion of the exact amino acids needed to promote collagen synthesis. It not only gives skin a collagen boost, but can calm various skin conditions as well as protect skin from pollution.
Which one to try?
If you’re wondering which one to go for then I recommend going by your dietary restrictions. In other words if you’re a vegan you will definitely go for the vegan option. However, if you do eat animal protein and are still unsure, then I would go for Collagen Shots, as the marine collagen has a tremendous amount of beneficial amino acid proteins that give skin an incredible boost.
If your skin is inflamed and needs calming down then you may want to try Skin Perfecting Complex.
