Has anyone got any collagen recommendations that they love/swear by?
Preference for a powder version as like the thought of adding to smoothies and juices etc? It feels a very saturated market, for the right reasons, but then an overwhelming amount to choose from! x
I’ve been taking the Dose & Co collagen for a while now and can definitely recommend! I see a real difference in my nails and hair and how much stronger they are
Kollo is a great one. It’s liquid and you mix into a little water. Tastes like mango! X
The scientific evidence for collagen appears to be very weak . I’m still to be convinced that it isn’t a waste of money
I am a huge fan of Vida Glow!! I have noticed the BIGGEST difference in the strength of my nails!! I’ve tried a few flavours and also love the original in my coffee
I love Vida Glow! My hair has never been so thick, and the nail growth in borderline annoying! I’ve tried a few and it’s by far the best tasting. I add the unflavoured to smoothies and coffee (it’s heat stable) and I love the fruit flavoured powders in just water. Highly recommend!
Hi Caroline, the scientific evidence for collagen supplementation is actually quite compelling, especially when it comes to beauty benefits like enhancing skin hydration and elasticity and reducing fine lines.
A recently published systematic review has looked at all the available high quality evidence for collagen supplementation for skin anti-ageing benefits.
You can see it here if you’re interested
There is a lot of misinformation out there and the research is rapidly growing and evolving.
The problem Lauren is that for every piece of purported evidence pro collagen supplements there are at least 5 against. Each to her own of course !
Zooki has an amazing collagen. Tastes good too. I would definitely recommend
If taking collagen supplements doesn’t suit you, I am a HUGE advocate for microneedling facials - specifically, anyone who offers SkinPen. After just 1 facial, your skin naturally produces the same amount of collagen that is lost over a year. Just something to consider x
I totally agree Kitty . I have seen great results on my (elderly!) skin from microneedling
This is good to know! I will look around my local area in Leeds/York in the new year and do some research! X
I recommend Willpowders collagen. Way more benefits than skin. Davinia Taylor is the brand founder and her book it’s not a diet is great. She is a bit extreme with some of the things she has adopted but still a lot of good stuff in the book and lots to learn about how to improve your health and wellbeing
Kiki organics is the one I use. Great brand - all about natural solutions without all the bulking agents others use. As for the science - I’m interested in whether it is a waste of money or not. I’d love to save myself the pennies!!
I just started Osloskinlab one … no flavour so ideal to add to a drink during the day or first thing in the morning.
I can recommend the Beauty Pie Collagen powder. I have seen a difference in my hair and nails. My skin also feels more supple. After doing lots of research it appears to have all the ingredients required to make a good collagen supplement. It also tastes ok on its own. I combine mine with their super greens powder, this is great for energy and gut health.
I use a Grass Fed Swiss Bovine Collagen powder by Willpowder.
It is completely tasteless so can be drank with just water. I add it into my morning green juice.
