Why choose a vegan collagen alternative?


We begin to lose the ability to produce collagen naturally when we enter our mid to late 20s, at this point our body begins to slowly break down existing collagen fibres faster than it can produce them. As a result, we gradually start to look and feel older. To slow down and even help reverse this process, we need to provide specific cells with the essential nutrients and compounds required to facilitate collagen production. Increasing your regular collagen intake can help to fight the impact of ageing. 

Several factors will ensure the formation of healthy strong collagen stores throughout the body. It predominantly relies on key amino acids, such as glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline. Along with these amino acids, vitamin C, vitamin A, zinc, magnesium, iron, copper, silicon, calcium, and flavonoids all play a role in the formation of collagen fibres. Some of these amino acids are found in sufficient quantities within a normal healthy diet whilst others may require supplementation to support collagen synthesis.

Why look for a vegan collagen alternative?

Vegan diets have been associated with being rich in nutrients and low in saturated fats. However, people consuming a plant-based diet need to be well informed on how to maintain quality protein food sources and acquire specific nutrients from their foods or supplements that include iron, calcium, and vitamin B-12, which primarily comes from eating a more omnivorous diet.

Collagen powder supplements are becoming well-known for their ability to naturally support our health from the inside out. However, a vegan or plant-based diet excludes all animal products, and as hydrolysed collagen powders are animal-sourced the need has arisen for vegan products rich in plant-derived amino acids that naturally support the synthesis of collagen.
