If you want healthy skin, hair, and nails—you should start thinking about collagen. Why? Because internal collagen production declines with age, resulting in wrinkles, fine lines, cellulite, and sagging skin.Collagen supplements may help. Research shows that supplementing collagen peptides can promote healthy skin, sleep, and much more. Consuming collagen powder is easy. Just add to your smoothie, coffee, tea, eggs, or milk. And if you’re on the run, you can always take collagen capsules. So whether you’re paleo, keto, or somewhere in between—taking collagen can level-up your diet. We’ve got a great selection of gluten-free, grass-fed collagen supplements right here at Thrive Market. Get shopping.
How To Choose A Collagen Supplement
Choosing the right collagen can be challenging. Here’s what to look for:
- Peptides: Collagen peptides—or “hydrolyzed collagen”—are best for mixing into your coffee or smoothie
- Clean ingredients: No artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives
- Unflavored or naturally sweetened: If not unflavored, look for natural sweeteners like cocoa or vanilla bean
- Bovine collagen: Collagen from cows is highly studied for its benefits
- Grass-fed: Favor pasture-raised and grass-fed products to support ethical farming
- 10 grams of collagen per serving size: The sweet spot for benefits
