How to boost your collagen production as a vegan

Collagen has become increasingly popular as a beauty supplement for all things hair, nails, and skin related. 

If you've done any research or read our past blogs on collagen, you'll know that collagen comes from animal sources and thus is not vegan friendly.

Collagen is mainly found in the bones, muscles, ligaments, cartilage, skin and tendons of animals.

As a the most abundant protein in the human body it functions as a sort of "glue" to hold tissues together in order to provide structural support (1). It is also involved in tissue repair and regeneration and cell signalling.

The body naturally produces less collagen over time which is why supplementation can help to slow the effects of aging and maintain healthy looking skin (2).

Additional factors can also accelerate the loss of collagen including smoking, excessive drinking, refined sugar, stress, and excessive sun exposure.

Signs of loss of collagen may include wrinkles, sagging skin, thinning hair, cellulite, sore muscles, hollow eyes and face, and loss of mobility. 

There is only so much you can do to slow the decline of collagen that happens naturally as you age, which will include dietary and lifestyle factors, however a collagen supporting supplement can make a difference in the way that your skin looks and feels!

If you are vegan or vegetarian and avoid animal products that provide collagen there are now many plant based products on the market that can support collagen synthesis from the inside out. The difference is that animal based collagen products provide collagen directly while vegan products provide the necessary nutrients for the body to produce it naturally. 

These products can help to enhance skin elasticity and hydration, improve muscle strength, support joint repair, maintain a healthy intestinal barrier, reduce joint stiffness, promote bone repair and strength, boost recovery after exercise, and improve the appearance of skin, nails, and hair (3)(4).

 

Boost your collagen with BioSil

The good news is that you can still boost your collagen production as a vegan!

BioSil Collagen Generator is a vegan friendly product that supplies specific nutrients for the body to generate its own collagen naturally.

BioSil’s active ingredients are silicon and choline, also known and patented as ch-OSA, which increase collagen, keratin, and elastin levels in your body. 

Years of clinical trials by American and European researchers haven't only studied and tested BioSil, they’ve actually proven that it works with documented and significant improvements in the hair, skin, nails, joints, and bones of participants.

BioSil increases collagen levels by activating collagen production and by protecting existing collagen from degradation.

The result is less wrinkles, radiant looking skin, luscious hair, and stronger nails. 

It's important to note that BioSil Collagen Generator is not made of collagen, it generates collagen instead. This formula provides the ch-OSA complex which has been clinically proven to activate collagen-generating cells in order for the body to make its own collagen. 

BioSil combines results with convenience by providing products that can be taken in capsule or liquid form.
