It's likely that you have seen collagen pop up all over the internet and in health food stores. And though it has been recently trending as a must have in any superfood smoothie or health cabinet, collagen is nothing new.
In fact, we humans are made of it!
As the most abundant protein in the body, collagen makes up our connective tissue and acts as a building block for our skin, muscles, bones, ligaments, and tendons. This is why you have most likely already seen it being promoted for things such as skin health but also healthy bones.
The body will produce its own collagen but does it make a difference if you supplement with it?
Research is now showing that exogenous collagen supplementation can benefit the body in many ways:
- improves skin health by reducing the effects of aging, reducing dryness and enhancing skin elasticity (1)(2)(3).
- helps to decrease joint pain overall, but more particularly in patients suffering from osteoarthritis (4)(5)(6)
- supports bone health and may help to increase bone mineral density and reduce bone degradation (7)(8)
- improves nail growth and reduces brittleness (9)
- supports hair growth and may reduce hair thinning (10)
Enhanced Collagen Powder
Organika's Enhanced Collagen Powder makes the perfect addition to your cup of coffee, smoothie, or breakfast oatmeal as it's literally tasteless!
Flavourless and odourless, this formula is hydrolyzed for maximum absorption in the body.
Now when it comes to choosing a collagen supplement, quality is always of top concern. This is why Organika makes it a priority to source from sustainable and clean sources.
This Bovine Collagen is sourced from grass-fed and pasture-raised cattle, and free of antibiotics, hormones, artificial sweeteners or GMO ingredients.
Bovine collagen has been shown to increase types I and III collagen, especially useful for promoting skin elasticity and reducing the effects of aging. It is also particularly rich in the amino acid, glycine which has anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects (11).
Effervess Collagen tabs
Have your collagen on the go! No more excuses about forgetting to take your daily collagen supplement with Organika's new Effervess tablets, so you can have your collagen anywhere, anytime.
These effervescent tabs make any beverage a little more fun by adding fizz and flavor along with the therapeutic benefits of marine collagen and vitamin C.
The combination of collagen with vitamin C provides the body with collagen peptides ready for the body to use as well as the building blocks to stimulate endogenous production of new collagen in the skin, hair, nails, and bone.
Organika's marine collagen is sustainably sourced from the skins of wild-caught cod from Korea and free of any antibiotics or GMO feed. The collagen undergoes a process called hydrolyzation, in which collagen particles are broken down into smaller molecules, called peptides, with the help of enzymes - no heat or chemicals involved! These smaller particles are easier for our bodies to digest and absorb, so nothing goes to waste.
Free of artificial flavours, colours, preservatives and sugar!
