Collagen is one of the materials that makes up cartilage, bone, and skin; it is a protein that your body produces naturally and makes up about a third of all of the protein in our bodies1. It is involved in the functioning of the joints as well as in the elasticity of the skin. Collagen peptides are very small pieces of protein from animal collagen.2

Collagen fibres are responsible for the tone and firmness of the skin. Production of collagen and elastin slow as we age which contributes to the loss of skin elasticity and the formation of wrinkles3.

Dietary sources of collagen

Typically, products made from animal parts, like skin, bones and ligaments, including bone broth as well as certain types of seafood, such as fish skin and jellyfish, are examples of foods rich in collagen4.

What are the benefits of collagen for the skin?

Collagen peptides (VERISOL®) support skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.5,6 Clinical data has shown that ingestion of 2.5 g of collagen can significantly increase skin elasticity and reduce wrinkles.

Collagen peptides support skin appearance as they act as a source of the amino acids required for collagen production.7
