Explore the benefits of collagen for skin, hair & nail health

Collagen is a type of protein that is a major component of connective tissues. Humans and animals create their own collagen naturally, and it is found in our skin, bones, gut lining, joints, nails, and hair. It brings many benefits to the body, including healthier skin, bone and joints, but with age our body’s ability to produce collagen declines.


There are over 20 types of collagen found in the human body alone. They vary slightly in their structure with the most common forms sold being type I, II and III. Type I and III are predominantly found in the dermal layer of the skin, bone, tendon, muscle and connective tissue. Type II collagen comes from cartilage.


Type I collagen is the most abundant in the skin and, together with elastin, forms fibres that guarantee structure, elasticity and firmness. A diet rich in collagen peptides has shown significant improvements in the appearance of the skin particularly with improvement in skin conditions, contributing to positive effects on appearance, elasticity and hydration. This collagen-rich diet acts as an anti-aging agent aiding in the reduction of wrinkles and facial expression lines and stimulates the proliferation of fibroblasts, contributing to the synthesis of new collagen fibres.


Nutraviva's premium collagen powders assist to slow down the effects of the ageing process by nourishing the skin, hair and nails building blocks. In particular, marine collagen protein contains significantly higher amounts of the amino acids, glycine, proline and hydroxyproline when compared to many other protein powders.  These amino acids are necessary for promoting healthy tissue growth by the cells themselves. Hydrolysed collagen is highly digestible and is characterised by an improved bioavailability for optimal beauty results.
