The best collagen supplements to take in 2021

Collagen capsules

As we enter 2021, it feels obvious that our priority should be to take care of our bodies and wellbeing. The secret for feeling our best and achieving glowing skin is right in front of us, collagen supplements. At Proto-col, we believe in both collagen and vitamin supplementation due to the studies and research we have undertaken. However, understanding which ones are the best can be challenging. Read further to find out which ones can benefit you the most.

Best collagen supplements for skin and hair

Adding collagen into your daily health regime brings many benefits to the body. Collagen is a vital protein, and it is our natural ingredient for keeping bodies youthful. This powerful protein is not only found in the skin but the hair, nails, connective tissue and bones and is essential for tissue repair, joint health and cell regeneration. Collagen is described by our founder, James Greenwell, as ‘the glue that holds us together’.

Proto-col collagen experts have found from your mid-twenties, natural collagen production begins to deplete by 1.5% every year. And, from the age of 30, this depletion has already increased to 15%, when a woman goes through menopause this is increased even more.

Our clinical collagen formulation works at a deeper level by stimulating the body’s own collagen production, while most creams and topical skincare products only target the outer layer of the skin and can prove ineffective or short term.

Collagen capsules

Here are our best collagen supplements for ageing skin:

Pure Collagen Capsules (2500mg)
