Which collagen supplement is right for me?

‘I’ve heard of collagen supplement benefits but don’t know where to start. Can you help?’ is one of our most asked questions. We have pulled together some of our best-selling products and who they are most suited to, to help you decide which is best. 

Collagen supplements are one of the most popular ways to keep the skin young. While they vary in strength and form, it can be hard to keep up with the latest studies and updates if unfamiliar. At Proto-col, we’ve been studying the science behind collagen since 2003, which means we’re the perfect people for the job. We know what type of collagen and how much collagen you should digest for particular desired effects. It’s easy to ask yourself if collagen supplements work, but we believe our studies, reviews and customer feedback does the talking.  

So, let’s get you acquainted with what collagen is and how it performs. CEO and founder James Greenwell describes it as the glue that holds us together. Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the body. With 90% of the skins protein made up of it, collagen provides the amino acids that keep our skin soft and bouncy, wrinkle-free and with a youthful glow. Not only this, but collagen helps to keep our hair and nails growing strong and supports us internally. Collagen supports our tendons, muscles, and ligaments, keeping us moving flexibly and at ease with little pain.

From our mid-20’s, the natural production of collagen in our bodies begins to deplete by 1.5% per year. By our 40's we’ve already lost 30% and when females reach menopause, this loss rapidly increases for up to 5 years. Collagen is crucial for helping us feel confident in not only our movement but our appearance.

Are collagen supplements safe?

We know that our collagen supplements are perfectly safe, with a high bioavailability to get to the areas that need it most quickly. There are many ways to digest our collagen supplements as they are available in a variety of forms. All our products labels inform you about our recommended daily dosage.
