We are proud to introduce the newest addition to our lineup of healthy nutritional gummies: Vegan Collagen Booster by Herbaland. A new Sugar-free, Plant-Based supplement for adults.
What is a collagen booster?
It's important to us that everyone has access to quality nutrition, and that our products are inclusive. It was with this value in mind that we developed our Vegan Collagen Booster; Collagen has been making waves as one of the industry's biggest buzzwords in the last year, however, there is not a commercially viable option for plant-based collagens, and the collagen supplements on the market are derived from marine or bovine sources.
We wanted to find a fantastic plant-based option for our customers. With this in mind, the Herbaland Research & Development team carefully selected ingredients that promote the body's ability to synthesize collagen - naturally!
What does collagen do?
Collagen is an important protein that provides structure and strength in our bones, muscles, skin, and tendons. It's often associated with smooth and supple skin.
What Ingredients Support Collagen in Herbaland Vegan Collagen Booster?
Amla fruit, also known as Indian Gooseberry, is an amazing natural fruit. It has been well-regarded in Ayurvedic traditions for its benefits for hair and skin - such as improving elasticity, strengthening hair, and more!
Modern science helps to back up this claim: Amla fruit contains 20x more Vitamin C than an orange - which is a key component in collagen production. In fact, two observational studies, which typically assess skin health by changes in depth and number of wrinkles, found that higher intakes of vitamin C in the diet were associated with better skin. The studies reported a notable decrease in lines.
Lysine is also a key component to collagen production; it works closely with Vitamin C, which converts it into a form that the body can use to create collagen. And, as an added bonus, lysine is an antioxidant, which helps to reduce inflammation and free radical damage that contribute to ageing.
In clinical research, Vitamin A has been shown to stimulate collagen production in the skin, while simultaneously reducing metallaproteinase - which degrades the body's collagen.
