We have been really quite amazed by the success of our new Collagen kid on the block. Veggiecol is our vegetarian collagen option and it does have an immensely powerful kick to it.
When we formulated Veggiecol, we thought it would be the little sister of supplements to our incredible Collagen Shots which packs a huge 10,000 mg of marine collagen per serving but the potent extract has developed a fast-growing cult following.
Makeup artist, Daniel Sandler and facialist, Marie Reynolds quickly spoke out about the benefits that they’ve seen with this incredible product. Both are ardent Collagen Shots users but have found when travelling it is easier to take Veggiecol and it is the perfect product for those who would rather take a tablet.
This vegetarian type collagen is a new generation supplement and the first of its kind, containing a highly concentrated and unique extract from egg proteins, combined with active skincare ingredients, including Hyaluronic Acid. Perfect for those who seek an alternative to fish & meat-based ingredients, Veggiecol’s potent formula combines a powerful blend of the specifically formulated vegetarian amino acid profile known to enhance collagen production within the skin. It also contains vegetarian-based proteins, glycosaminoglycans and glycoproteins, in similar ratios to that of non-vegetarian collagen supplements.
After the age of twenty-five years, collagen synthesis reduces at a rate of 1.5% a year, and by the age of forty-five years, collagen levels can have fallen by as much as 30%. The visible effects of this process- combined with external stressors such as lack of sleep, poor diet, UV & pollution-, all of which compromise the skin’s ability to regenerate, are the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and dry skin. Therefore our intake of Collagen is absolutely vital, as it improves the skin’s elasticity and supports a healthy skin structure.
Clinical studies show that over 94% of those who tested Veggiecol, have seen an improvement in the overall condition of skin, hair and nails, delivering optimal results with on-going usage. Taken daily, Veggiecol helps to maintain firm, plump and healthy skin from within.
Ingredient list and benefits
Glycoproteins: Found in cell membranes, they function in cell-to-cell recognition. They have an important role in protection, structural integrity and cell adhesion and assist in developing elastic fibres of elastin and connective tissue.
Chondroitin sulfate: Proteins with glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), a family of carbohydrates with its primary role to maintain and support collagen, elastin and plumpness in the cellular spaces. It helps collagen and elastin fibres to retain moisture.
Hyaluronic acid: Often referred to as the fountain of youth, it can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water and provides a cushion filler between collagen fibres and elastin.
Amino acid L-cysteine: A building block of the antioxidant glutathione, arguably the body’s most important antioxidant that recharges Vitamin C and E in the battle against oxidization.
Hydroxyproline: The key amino acid in the stimulation of fibroblasts which in turn stimulate the production of collagen.
Glucosamine, keratin and lysozyme: Protect cells from oxidative stress and boost the immune system. Inhibits the production of tyrosinase, reducing the production of melanin and hyperpigmentation.
Veggiecol® vegetarian collagen peptide supplement contains a patented vegetarian formula to boost collagen levels, support healthy DNA and protect from oxidative stress.
