Rose decodes Collagen in a hot minute...

There are more supplements about collagen than you can shake a stick at. 

Collagen is an amazing substance that supports our joints, our skin, our ligaments… everything in our body - our gut lining, all our mucous membranes and so it’s a fantastic substance to incorporate into your diet or into your supplementing.

What I am wary about with the perception of collagen is that it is not necessarily going to go directly to your skin. A lot of people think it’s going to go straight to your skin and iron out all your wrinkles! It will go where it needs to - if your gut lining needs a bit of help it will go there…

The important thing about collagen is to find the right source - you can get bovine, and marine, and there are some vegan ones - Ancient & Brave are great for all. 

For bovine, look for types 1 and 3- they are the best for your skin and for joint and bone health. You want to have hydrolysed peptides and make sure you get grass-fed.  

Food sources such as bone broth are also a really good way to get some l collagen in.

Collagen Tips from Rose


 Realise that collagen will go where it needs to go (not always skin first)


Know your source - grass-fed is best for bovine, wild-caught best for marine


Make sure to get collagen that has Hydrolysed Peptides 


Food sources such as bone broth are a great way to introduce collagen into your diet
