The importance of hydrolysed collagen is a hot topic in the nutricosmetics world at the moment. While many have jumped on the ‘collagen bandwagon’ by producing collagen ‘beauty drinks’, snacks and supplements, albeit for a very valid reason. Not all collagen supplements are created equally. Many contain unhydrolyzed collagen, the form which is hard to digest and absorbed ineffectively.
Supplements containing hydrolysed collagen have been found to be the most effective when it comes to preventing premature ageing. This is because once hydrolysed, collagen becomes a lot more readily available (bioavailable is the technical term), meaning it’s absorbed easily in the small intestine and reaches the bloodstream quicker, all set and ready to work its magic.
So, what does collagen actually do? Let’s go a little deeper in the formulation of our new beauty pill and find out what it is that makes it so effective…
The Benefits Of Collagen
- Preserves skin firmness
- Promotes skin elasticity
- Reduces the appearance of wrinkles
- Improves joint health
Being one of the most abundant proteins in the body, Collagen is a peptide which makes up a large percentage of our hair, skin and nails. Accounting for 80% of the dermis or inner layer of skin it is responsible for giving skin elasticity, without it, wrinkles would form every time we smile or frown. When absorbed in the body, collagen is broken down into amino acids. It’s these amino acids which help to stimulate more collagen to be produced in the skin, joint and hair cells through cell activation. Similarly, it protects the hair against breakages and damage caused by heat, by providing elasticity to prevent it from snapping.
Over time, the amount of collagen in the body decreases which results in the key, unwanted signs of ageing. Boosting collagen levels within the body is one of the best ways to keep your skin looking young, fresh and healthy, which it is a vital component of our new beauty supplement.

The benefits of Coconut Oil
- Hydrates the skin
- Readily absorbed source of energy
- Increases weight loss
You’ve probably heard all about the wonderful benefits of coconut oil as they’ve certainly not gone unnoticed in the past few years. Containing medium chain triglycerides (MCT), a type of fat which is readily burned by the body, coconut oil has been found to be effective at helping the body get rid of belly fat. Aside from its weight loss benefits, when taken orally, studies have shown coconut oil can also help hydrate the skin to reduce dryness and onset of wrinkles.
The benefits of Vitamin C
- Protects cells against oxidative stress
- Prevents premature ageing
- Supports the immune system
- Aids iron absorption.
- Reduces feelings of tiredness & fatigue
The third and final vital factor contributing to healthy skin is vitamin C. Required daily (due to it being a water-soluble vitamin), Vitamin C plays a fundamental role in collagen formation, it adds hydrogen and oxygen to amino acids, resulting in collagen synthesis. vitamin C is also a potent antioxidant which helps protect the skin against damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are essentially unstable electrons which try and disrupt healthy cells by stealing their electrons.It’s this process which damages the skin’s cells resulting in premature skin ageing.
