Introduction

This supplement provides 1500mg per serving of high-quality hydrolyzed collagen peptides to support healthy skin, bones, joints and organs. Collagen Complex is a prime beauty and wellness offer.

Basic Building Block

Collagen is an indispensable building material for the construction of our bodies, and it’s used to provide shape and structure. There are many types of collagen, and each has different properties. Type I collagen is stronger than steel by weight, type II acts as springs for shock absorption, and type III is used in hollow structures such as the bladder.

Normal dietary collagen needs to be broken down into peptides (by digestive processes) before it can be absorbed in the gut, and this means the type of collagen you eat makes no difference to its nutritional value. The collagen peptides in Collagen Complex are already beneficially ‘broken down’ (hydrolyzed) and are readily available for the body to use.

Supports Healthy Skin, Bones and Joints

Studies have shown that dietary collagen can support the skin’s natural structure and firmness, reducing the new appearance of visible fine lines and wrinkles. It also supports the repair of everyday skin damage. Structurally, collagen is key to both the strength of bones and the suppleness of joints. Collagen also makes up a significant proportion of muscle mass and the internal organs. Supplementing collagen peptides can support the body’s natural production of collagen throughout the body.

Skin Support

VitaPost Collagen Complex provides natural hydrolyzed collagen that supports your body in the normal repair of damaged skin; supports the skin’s natural firmness and structure; supports skin tone and can improve the visible appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Studies have concluded that supplementing with collagen can also increase skin hydration.1,3-6,13

Bone Support

VitaPost Collagen Complex could have great benefits supporting the body’s maintenance of the skeleton, especially in women who are undergoing natural hormonal changes. Studies suggest a diet supplemented with hydrolyzed collagen can support the maintenance of the bone collagen already present - meaning less natural degradation of the bones with age.8-10

Joint Support

Collagen in your cartilage is the mechanical reason why joints don’t just crack and break whenever you jump or run. Supplementing the diet with hydrolyzed collagen has been associated with joint benefits for a whole range of people, from age-related joint degradation, to highly-active athletes who push their joints to the limit.2,7,8

What is Collagen?

Collagen is the most plentiful protein in your body, and it’s a major part of your tendons, skin, bones, teeth, muscles and ligaments.15

Collagen is the most plentiful protein in your body, and it’s a major part of your tendons, skin, bones, teeth, muscles and ligaments. Collagen gives your skin strength and resilience. It helps the cartilage in your joints remain supple. It provides structure to your arteries, keeping them strong and flexible. It gives your bones structure, too, by acting as ‘reinforcing rods’. Collagen is an amazing construction material.

Collagen comes in many forms, but the vast majority in your body consists of types I, II and III. These types all form relatively long fibers (compared to body cells). Type I collagen is - ounce for ounce - stronger than steel. Type II collagen is thinner than type I, and is used in cartilage all bunched up like springs for shock absorption. Type III is important for the hollow things in your body – like large blood vessels, the bowel and bladder.

It’s important to know that the ‘type’ of collagen is only relevant when it’s already a part of your body. When you eat it, your body just re-makes it into new types.

Collagen is so big and tough that we can’t absorb it ‘as is’ when we eat it. What we can do though, is ‘hydrolyze’ the collagen, which means it’s broken down into much smaller pieces ('peptides') by water, making it usable by your body. Collagen Complex provides easy-to-digest hydrolyzed collagen peptides.

Do I need a prescription for Collagen Complex?
Collagen Complex is available for purchase without a prescription.

How do I use Collagen Complex?
Take three (3) capsules 1 to 2 times daily or as directed by your healthcare professional.

Do not exceed recommended dose. Pregnant or nursing mothers, children under 18, and individuals with a known medical condition should consult a physician before using this or any dietary supplement.

I don’t enjoy swallowing capsules. Do I have any other options?
While the Collagen Complex capsule can be taken apart and absorbed in your favorite drink or food, we would not recommend this due to the taste. As this capsule contains compact powder, we would also not recommend splitting the capsule in half and attempting to swallow the halves.
