This innovative formula is the first of its kind on the market. Until now, consumers have only been able to take collagen from either an animal or vegetarian origin. BOTANI-COL® is designed to offer the benefits of conventional collagen to those on a plant-based diet. This ground-breaking discovery is not only limited to supplements; the collagen boosting powder can also be added to a number of products including creams and drinks.
As collagen only comes from animal sources we can’t refer to Botani-col as a collagen, we refer to it as a vegan collagen booster. Although other products use this term, their products are not formulated in the same way. Rejuvenated have used a combination of plants to create the same amino acid ratio as that in conventional collagens.
