Collagen is the building block for skin (joints and tendons too) and it also helps maintain the hair follicle.
VERISOL® Collagen is a natural Bioactive Collagen Peptide - meaning it’s easy for your body to absorb and use garnering faster results.
Taking Collagen orally (rather than applying it to the skin with a topical cream) is the preferred way to see the best results, allowing the hair, skin, and nails to grow healthy from the inside out, not just reaching a superficial level on the outside of the skin.
Type I and III Collagen has the greatest impact on hair, skin and nails. It can help minimize fine lines and wrinkles, improve elasticity, strengthen nail beds, and slow hair loss.
In addition to this essential bioactive protein, this best selling Advanced Collagen Formula contains:
Trick: For extra support for your skin and joints, combine your collagen with hyaluronic acid! HA is a “plumper” that can help make your skin look smooth and help to cushion your joints.
Tip: Making sure you get enough protein and vitamin C in your daily diet will go a long way when trying to get your body to increase collagen production
Q: “Does taking collagen really work?”
A: For most people that take a collagen supplement regularly, as directed, along with a generally healthy lifestyle, improvements are seen between 1-3 months of use. Many people report stronger nails, thicker hair or less hair falling out in the shower, even reporting help with acne and skin elasticity. Another great effect of taking a collagen supplement is that it also helps to support the joints!
Q: Does collagen make you gain weight?
A: Collagen is a protein comprised of specific amino acids (glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, and arginine) and supplements are typically derived from animal connective tissue. It will not make you gain weight any more than eating a protein would - protein contains about 4 calories per gram. The serving size for Vitamin World’s Hair Skin and Nails Advanced Collagen Formula with Verisol contains only 10 calories!
Q: Should you take collagen every day?
A: Yes. As we age, the body starts to decrease it’s production of collagen. Taking a collagen supplement helps fill the gap between what your body is making and what you need for a youthful appearance, but it’s not a “one and done” type of solution. Taking it daily, along with Vitamin C (already included in Vitamin World’s Hair Skin and Nails Advanced Collagen Formula with Version) will help boost the amount of collagen in your body daily!
Q: Is collagen powder or pills better?
A: There is no additional benefit between the two forms of collagen. Sometimes collagen pill serving sizes can exceed 6 per day, and that can be intimidating if you don’t like to swallow pills. In this case, a powder might be better for you to avoid that hassle. The good news is that Vitamin World’s Advanced Collagen Formula with Verisol has a serving size of just 3 caplets per day! So if you prefer the convenience of taking a pill this would be the better choice for you.
Q: How long does it take for collagen to start working?
A: It definitely varies between people. First, it’s always important to keep in mind that with all natural supplements, if the benefits they tout come from a clinical study, those studies typically last 12 weeks (3 months). We always suggest taking a natural supplement 3 months before assessing whether or not it works, or adjusting the dosage. However, there have been a lot of people who claim to see a difference in their appearance after 2 weeks of use.
