“Loving the plant based Collagyn”
One of the main ingredients found in all three of our vegan Collagyn range is a new chickpea protein powder that’s incredibly nutritious.
When it comes to vegan and plant-based nutrition, chickpeas provide a wide range of amnio acids including essential amino acids which are often hard to find on a predominately plant diet.
With plant-based nutrition in mind, we combine this chickpea protein powder with brown rice and pea protein powders to provide a more comprehensive range of amino acids.
This chickpea protein provides a milky and creamy in texture to our vegan Collagyn blends and you can find this innovative protein powder in our Naked Collagyn , Inspired Collagyn and Radiant Collagyn.
Chicory Root Inulin
Soluble fibre is an important food source for the diverse numbers of friendly microbes that naturally reside in the gut microbiome.
Our organic inulin is sourced form chicory root and has a light, sweet and subtle malty flavour that helps satisfy those afternoon sweet tooth cravings.
Also, being a source of fibre, inulin also helps to keep you feeling fuller for longer – so it’s a win-win ingredient!
Collagen Specific Amino Acids
Collagen is an important structural protein providing strength and integrity to numerous body tissues including skin, bones, cartilage, blood vessel walls, ligaments, tendons and connective tissues.
There are many different types of collagen all formed around 17 different amino acids with the main composition of collagen being formed from five key amino acids - glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, arginine and alanine.
MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides)
MCT’s are readily utilised for cellular energy production and easily convert into ketones which may provide an alternative energy source for brain cells.
Rest assured our True MCT oil is sustainably sourced 100% from coconuts, never from palm oil, and is extracted using pure steamed distillation and gentle hydrolysis to contain C8 (60%) and C10 (40%).
A clear, odourless, and tasteless oil to easily fuel-up your day. A popular Brave Recipe is the morning ritual of adding True MCT to your morning coffee (or tea) for an invigorating start to the day.
High impact sports and day-to-day living contribute wear and tear to the spongy cartilage cushions which act as shock absorbers in our joints.
Regardless of whether you’re an endurance athlete, fitness warrior, countryside stroller or a yoga/pilates fanatic, we all need to look after our joints to help maintain our movement and flexibility, as the decades role by.
We’ve cushioned our Naked Collagyn formula with therapeutic levels of glucosamine sulphate, from a naturally fermented source that’s suitable for vegans.
This nutraceutical ingredient is officially called Methyl Sulphonyl Methane a technical name for a naturally occurring form of sulphur.
Although there are many synthetic forms of this nutraceutical made from petroleum sources, we only ever use a unique plant-derived form of MSM which is extracted from corn. Sulphur provides cross-links (strong bonds) to structural proteins including keratin and collagen, contributing strength, integrity, flexibility and elasticity to areas of the body where these proteins are found – muscles, bones, connective tissue, hair, skin, nails, and cartilage.
You can find our plant-derived MSM in our vegan Naked Collagyn designed for sporty and active lifestyles.
Our organic Hebridean seaweed is sustainably wild-harvested around the remote islands of the Scottish Outer Hebrides.
These pristine waters are carefully monitored and managed, with exclusive harvesting rights from the Crown Estate.
The harvested seaweed is carefully dried, gently processed and milled into a nutritious, flavourless ingredient containing a variety of minerals including iodine to help support normal cognitive, thyroid, nervous system and skin function and contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism.
Not all vitamin C’s are created equal. The most common version of vitamin C, called ascorbic acid, has a very low absorption rate and often triggers digestive disturbance.
So we formulate our products with a gentle on the gut, buffered form of vitamin C called magnesium ascorbate which has far superior absorption than standard ascorbic acid.
Magnesium ascorbate is one of our most important ingredients in terms of health benefits, daily wellbeing, collagen renewal and supporting skin cell protection.
Similar to vitamin D, a nutrient called choline is hard to obtain through a plant-based diet which is why many health organisations are promoting vegan awareness for the risk of choline deficiency.
Studies indicate that this nutrient is important for neurotransmitter balance, cardiovascular health and the maintenance of normal liver function.
To help support daily wellbeing for those of you following a plant-based diet we’ve included a form of vegan choline (L-Choline Bitartrate) in our Naked Collagyn , Radiant Collagyn and Inspired Collagyn .
Pea protein is sourced from yellow split peas which have been cultivated for food for thousands of years.
We use a special 80% pea protein which removes more of the fats and carbs in order to provide a concentrate diverse range of amino acids found in this plant protein.
We choose this source of protein over whey or soy proteins due to health (both are common allergens) and environmental reasons.
Brown Rice Protein
Rice protein is a great source of gluten-free, dairy-free, low carb and low fat protein which contains a wide range of amino acids and essential amino acids.
For those focusing on body conditioning, protein powders are likely to become a key part of your fitness strategy and if you’re following a plant-based diet then a daily source of essential amino acids is key for vegan wellbeing.
Our rice protein comes from wholegrain rice and has a very mild, nutty, naturally sweet flavour. We combine rice, pea and chickpea proteins in our Naked Collagyn, Inspired Collagyn and Radiant Collagyn for a more complete protein package.
White Tea Extract
White tea retains the highest level of polyphenols and catechins including epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) compared to green and black tea.
Skin ageing occurs due to internal and external factors which damage skin cells, disrupt elastin and collagen and affect skin tone and elasticity.
The bioactive compounds present in white tea help protect skin cells from the harmful effects of oxidative stress generated by free radicals, UV rays and common pollutants.
Vegan Vitamin D
Vitamin D is made by skin cells when exposed to sunlight but national studies across many European countries, indicate that deficiencies in vitamin D are commonplace.
Vitamin D is naturally found in meat, fish and dairy products making this vitamin hard to find when following a plant-based diet.
This vital vitamin is important for supporting normal bone health, immune and muscle function.
Simply add 2 tsp (10g) to your smoothie mix and blend. Alternatively, add 2 tsp (10g) to a cup and mix to a paste with a small amount of milk, plant mylk or water. Top up with 150ml of hot or cold plant mylk, milk or water and enjoy. Take daily for optimal results.

WHAT EXTRAS DO THE VEGAN BLENDS CONTAIN?
We have blended each of our vegan collagyn products with specific botanicals with benefits aimed at brain, body and beauty and tailored the flavours. You can choose based on your health goals, however each blend supports the body holistically with wide ranging benefits.
The Vegan Collagyn range all provide plant-based sources of the main amino acids that are naturally present in collagen (glycine, proline, hydroxyproline) ensuring collagen renewal, whilst also containing specific nutrients that are hard to obtain from a vegan diet including vitamin D, iodine and choline.
Other nutrients that are also key for skin health and collagen renewal including vitamin C are also included.
The botanicals are all well studied and used for their anti-inflammatory or antioxidant properties.
IS VEGAN COLLAGYN ORGANIC?
Each of the Vegan Collagyn products contain certified organic pea and brown rice protein powders and wild harvested organic Hebridean seaweed.
Additionally, Radiant Collagyn contains organic certified beetroot and Inspired Collagyn contains certified organic turmeric, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon and black pepper.
However, because the Vegan Collagyn products are classed as nutritional supplements since they contain added nutrients such as vitamin D, vitamin C, choline, L-glycine, L-proline, L-hydroxyproline, L-alanine, L-arginine then we are unable to register them with the Soil Association for certification.
Whether or not they are organic we always strive to find the best quality ingredients, as sustainably sourced and most bioavailable possible.
HOW DOES VEGAN COLLAGYN COMPARE TO TRUE COLLAGEN AND WILD COLLAGEN?
Collagen is a natural compound found in humans and animals - this of course makes it difficult to obtain on a vegan diet.
The long amino acid chains that form the polypeptides found within the large collagen molecule are mainly formed from just 5 key amino acids – glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, arginine and alanine. Instead of using bovine or marine hydrolysed collagen peptides the Vegan Collagyn range contains generous amounts of all 5 of these amino acids, from vegan and fermented sources (except glycine which is vegan sourced) to provide the body with the building blocks of collagen it needs.
The vegan Collagyn range also contains Vitamin C, a key cofactor for the enzymes which build new collagen molecules.
WHICH VEGAN COLLAGEN SHOULD I TAKE?
All of the blends benefit collagen renewal aswell as containing Vitamin D, choline and iodine - nutrients difficult to obtain on a vegan diet. On top of this you may want to consider:
For BODY - choose NAKED - with it’s unique blend of MCT, MSM, glucosamine which support sporty and active lifestyles and recovery.
For BRAIN - choose INSPIRED - with adaptogenic ashwagandha, cognitive supporting botanicals such as turmeric + ginger and MCT to provide energy to the brain this blend
is perfect for stressful and busy lifestyles and optimal mindful wellbeing.
For BEAUTY - choose RADIANT - This delicious berry + beetroot blend is perfect for indulgent and urban lifestyles, to help protect cells from oxidative stress and deeply nourish your skin from within.
HOW DO YOU RECOMMEND USING VEGAN COLLAGYN
There are many ways to use our blends!
They taste delicious when made with hot mylk or milk. The ideal way to take this would be to blend 10g with a small amount of hot water (or hot milk/mylk) to make a paste and then top up with 100-150ml hot mylk or milk.
Another popular method is to simply add 10g (2 teaspoons) to a smoothie of your choice.
To use in food you may want to add the powders to overnight oats, yogurt or chia pudding.
IS THIS PRODUCT SUITABLE TO TAKE WHILST FASTING?
In a nutshell - YES! Our Vegan Collagyn range has been designed to be part of our Brave Method which cleverly supports many of the different forms of Intermittent Fasting, Time Restricted Eating and Ketogenic Diets that are so popular today.
During your fasting window - consuming no more than 50 kcal during your fasting window is unlikely to interfere with your fast. The Vegan Collagyn range all contain less than 36 kcal per 10g serving when made with hot water. If you are finding the last couple of hours of your fasting window a little challenging or if you are looking for a nutritious vegan hot beverage to help kick start your day without offsetting all your overnight fasting efforts, then the Vegan Collagyn products are there to support you.
During your eating window, if you are following a keto protocol of restricting total carbs to no more than 20g a day, then the Vegan Collagyn products are completely suitable to help sustain you in-between meals or to reach for as a protein snack choice.. Alternatively during your eating window, you could make the Vegan Collagyn products with milk or plant mylk for a comforting and luxurious drink.
CAN I TAKE VEGAN COLLAGYN AT THE SAME TIME AS THE OTHER COLLAGEN PRODUCTS?
If you are not following a vegan diet and you love our collagen range (True Collagen, Wild Collagen, Coffee + Collagen, Cacao + Collagen), then you can still continue with these products if you like and you could also add in the Vegan Collagyn of your choice and benefit from all those skin nourishing free amino acids, vitamins and minerals. You might find it helpful to cycle through the different products to give your body variety!
DOES IT SUPPORT MY GUT HEALTH?
Yes, we’ve used inulin, a type of prebiotic starch found in a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and herbs. It stays in the bowel and helps certain beneficial bacteria to grow. The inulin in our products is from chicory root - a supplement known to support our gut health.
Our blends also contain gut friendly herbs such as turmeric and ginger, known as digestive healing agents and antioxidant rich berries which your gut bugs love!
I HAVE A COLD SORE, SHOULD I AVOID THIS PRODUCT?
This question often refers to the amino acid Arginine. Whilst this amazing amino acid is responsible for increasing blood flow and improving brain health, the herpes simplex virus, (which causes cold sores), requires arginine to replicate in your body. Depriving the virus of arginine may reduce the duration and severity of an outbreak. You can then return to using the product once your symptoms are cleared.
