Info: 60 Vegan Tablets
To help people keep building collagen as we age, most supplement makers source the nutrients for that from actual animal collagen, which they may then break down to make it more absorbable, but that's obviously not an option for vegans. This type -- which is made solely from organic plant foods (from over 30 real, nutritious, whole foods, grown on family-farms) -- is. As a proud part of the mykind Organics line, it's not only Vegan and Gluten Free, but also uses only Certified USDA Organic AND Non-GMO Project Verified ingredients, which were specifically selected to supply the co-nutrients needed not only for building collagen, but also to help restore and maintain youthful levels of keratin and elastin, the two related proteins our bodies use to keep up a healthy, natural glow.
Canadian product label differs slightly from the one shown.
Collagen is the fibrous protein that helps provide strength, structure and elasticity to our connective tissue, including our skin, hair, and nails. We produce it ourselves from the proteins and amino acids in our diet, but our ability to do so peaks in our mid-twenties and steadily drops off after that (especially if we smoke or consume a lot of sugar).
To help shore up the body's own natural production of collagen and help protect the skin from oxidative damage using only whole food, plant-based sources, Organic Plant Collagen Builder contains Silica, a key co-nutrient for collagen production, derived from Certified Organic Bamboo; Biotin, from Organic Sesbania; High Polyphenolic Pomegranate to support skin health and protection from UV damage, and Organic Rooibos and Organic Green Tea and Turmeric to fight free radicals.
