Collagen helps to hold the body together

Our Pure Collagen capsules are designed to form part of a daily regime of care for your skin.

The capsules contain VERISOL®, a formulation of hydrolysed type I and type III collagen. The hydrolysis process breaks the collagen into smaller peptides which increases their bioavailability.

Our Pure Collagen (400mg) (90 capsules) are very similar to our Pure Collagen (625mg) (120 capsules). However, they have a collagen lower dose per capsule. They provide an important base level dose of collagen at an exceptional price.

By stimulating the body’s own collagen production, VERISOL® works at a deeper level. It systemically affects the collagen metabolism in the dermis, rather than just reaching the outer layers of skin like creams and topical products do. As it is orally consumed, it influences the skin’s collagen metabolism directly from the inside.

We use bovine collagen from pasture-fed cows for two reasons:

It has some important DNA similarities to human collagen and can therefore be readily used by the body.
It’s use in the VERISOL® formulation has been clinically tested in numerous studies.
Our Pure Collagen capsules are not suitable for vegetarians or vegans.

Questions & Answers:
Q. What are the side effects of taking collagen?

A. There are not many recognised side effects of collagen supplementation and it is widely recognised as a safe way to support skin wellbeing. However, some brands do report that bloating and upset stomachs as are symptoms.

Hypercalcemia is a possible side effect that is only linked to some marine collagen supplements. Marine collagen sources such as shellfish or shark cartilage also contain high amounts of calcium and this can stimulate high levels of calcium in the blood (hypercalcemia). Symptoms may include chronic fatigue, nausea and abnormal heart rhythms.

This is not the case with Proto-col Pure Collagen. We use a bovine collagen source from pasture-fed cows instead of marine sources. We use bovine collagen for two reasons:

It has some important DNA similarities to human collagen and can therefore be readily used by the body.
Its use in the VERISOL® formulation has been clinically tested in numerous studies.
Q. What are the benefits of taking collagen supplements?

A. The benefits of taking a collagen supplement at a dose of at least 2500mg per day include:

May increase skin elasticity.
May reduce the depth and volume of wrinkles.
May reduce skin waviness associated with cellulite.
May promote skin wound healing.
May improve the growth and quality of fingernails.
May support normal joint function.
Q. Is it safe to take collagen supplements?

A. Yes. Research confirms that supplementing with collagen is a safe and effective way to support the health of skin and joints.

Q. How do collagen capsules work?

Oral consumption of collagen supplements help to stimulate the body’s own production of collagen.

From the age of around 25, our body’s natural ability to produce collagen begins to slow. This slowdown is the equivalent to 1.5% each year but this deteriorates more rapidly as we age, especially during and after the menopause.

Collagen supplements trigger sensors in our bodies that can stimulate production of new collagen.

Q. For how long should I take collagen capsules before notice results?

A. Clinical studies using a dose of at least 2500mg per day have demonstrated that visible and measurable results are evident after as little as four weeks. While everyone is different, we recommend taking our collagen supplements for at least four weeks and monitoring the results.
