Collagen Supplements

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, so it is vital to our health and wellbeing, supporting everything from our skin and soft tissues to our bones, tendons, and cartilage. While we're young, our bodies usually produce enough high-quality collagen to keep us well, but from our thirties onwards both the quantity and quality of this collagen decline.

Healthspan's range of collagen supplements helps to support skin elasticity, smoothness and firmness as well as your joint health. From tablets and capsules to skin serums, liquids and powder.

Why is collagen important?

Collagen is the main structural protein in the body, providing the scaffolding for all tissues, including joint cartilage and ligaments. It also provides strength and structure to our skin, bones, and tendons.

As a result, maintaining healthy collagen levels can benefit our health and wellbeing from top to toe – although it should be noted that different forms of collagen are used by the body in different places.

Type I collagen

This is by far the most common type, and is found in your skin, bones, teeth, and connective tissue. Along with type II, it's the most important for healthy joints.

Type II collagen

This improves the elasticity and resilience of joint cartilage, helping to cushion your joints and stop the ends of your bones rubbing together. If you don't have enough, joints can lose flexibility and become painful – a change that is often seen with age.

Type III collagen

Type III collagen supports your muscles, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels, and is used in the initial stages of injury repair.

Collagen tablets

Healthspan's range of collagen tablets contains collagen as well as marine collagen, which is great for the skin, alongside vitamin C and other essential minerals and oils to help improve your skin and overall joint health. From Marine Collagen 500mg tablets for skin health, to 1,000mg collagen tablets with added type II collagen for joint support in Super Strength Marine Collagen Complex. There's also the Platinum range of collagen tablets and collagen capsules for premium day and night absorption.

Collagen for skin

When choosing collagen supplements for skin, Brackenbury recommends marine collagen, which is rich in type I collagen and "helps to minimise fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improve skin elasticity and hydration." It's also good for strengthening nails and hair, she adds.

Her other piece of advice is to choose collagen tablets that contain hydrolysed collagen: a broken-down form with smaller particles that's easier for the body to absorb. You can also find collagen serums or creams made specifically for skin care.

The most effective serum or cream formulations use ingredients like plant oestrogens and vitamin C to help boost skin's collagen production, rather than containing collagen itself, whose particles are too large to reach the deeper levels of the skin.

The best-selling Replenish Collagen Boosting Serum is specially formulated to support skin during and after the menopause when falling oestrogen levels lead to a sharp decline in collagen levels. Plant oestrogens and vitamin C boost the skin's collagen, providing a noticeable improvement in hydration, plumpness, and texture.

Collagen liquids and powders

Great for those who can't take tablets or to make life easier on the go, Healthspan's Collagen GLOW contains a blend of types I and III collagen, hyaluronic acid, biotin, selenium and vitamins C and E. For healthy hair, skin and nails, three squeezes into water gives 500mg of collagen, and the drink is deliciously passion-fruit flavoured.

For a delicious orange-flavoured drink, Healthspan Elite Collagen Repair powder contains 20,000mg of collagen peptides, split into type I and type III. This collagen powder for joints and bones helps during injury recovery, as type III collagen acts as a framework for new red blood vessels and other collagens, such as type I. The type III collagen is then eventually replaced by stronger type I collagen during the healing process.

When it comes to collagen supplements for joints, type II collagen is essential, says health journalist Karen Evennett. For starters, it's "a key component in your articular cartilage – the cushioning in your joints that protects the ends of your bones to stop them rubbing together, and acts as a shock absorber."

Evennett suggests that maintaining adequate collagen levels could play a preventative role, highlighting that "low levels of collagen could lead to looser tendons, putting you at greater risk of a joint injury."

Marine collagen supplements

Healthspan has four premium marine collagen supplements to help support skin health. There's Collagen GLOW liquid and collagen powder, both of which contain marine collagen peptides, as well as Healthspan's specialist marine collagen supplements, which include:

Marine Collagen contains 500mg of hydrolysed type I marine collagen to help support the health of skin and connective tissues, together with vitamin C to further support collagen production.

Platinum Marine Collagen Skin Complex provides a premium blend of nutrients, including hydrolysed marine collagen, vitamin C, and omegas 3, 6, 7 and 9, to support your skin's health 24 hours a day. Added B vitamins, selenium, copper and zinc help to maintain healthy skin and protect against oxidative stress.

Super Strength Marine Collagen contains 1,000mg collagen peptides per tablet, including 800mg type I collagen to support the skin. These hydrolysed forms have a low molecular weight to ensure they are easily absorbed by the body.

Collagen for women

According to Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner Julie Brackenbury, "The most significant decrease in collagen begins during menopause, when oestrogen levels drop significantly." As a result, many women choose to start taking collagen supplements around the age of 45 (although benefits will be seen at any age), to help stimulate the body's ability to produce collagen and improve skin's hydration and elasticity.
