Collagen is the most abundant form of protein in the body (30% of the protein in our body is collagen). Providing us with strength, skin elasticity, tone and structure; it acts like the ‘glue’ that holds the body together. 

Collagen is needed for:

  • Healthy skin, hair and nails
  • Connective tissue health 
  • Supporting muscles and bones 
  • Good gut health 

As you age, the amount of collagen your body produces starts to go down... starting at age 25. It drops down to 50% by the time you hit 45 years old. Lifestyle factors, such as smoking, can also contribute to the loss of collagen. 

Less collagen = less elasticity, strength, and tone throughout the body.  

This is where collagen supplements come in!

Beauty from within

Want to hear a beauty secret? If you’re looking to improve the appearance of your hair, skin and nails from the inside out, collagen is essential! It nourishes the body with the building blocks of hair, skin and nails, and provides structure and elasticity in the skin. Some of the tried and tested benefits of collagen for beauty include:

  • Rejuvenated skin
  • Improved skin texture and hydration
  • Fuller and smoother hair
  • Stronger nails
  • Faster-growing hair and nails
  • Reduced cellulite

What to look for in your beauty collagen:

  • Type 1 collagen
  • Hydrolyzed (for better absorption)
  • Free of growth hormones or antibiotics

Get moving!

Whether you have joint and bone issues that limit your mobility, or you need maintenance for your healthy lifestyle, collagen can help you. Collagen fibers make up 70% of the cartilage needed for our joints to retain their structure and strength. Consider collagen supplements if you’re looking to:

  • Get relief from joint pain
  • Maintain healthy joint function
  • Repair your muscles and joints after workouts
  • Recover from cartilage injuries
  • Build lean muscle mass

What to look for in your collagen for mobility:

  • Type 2 or Type 3 collagen
  • Hydrolyzed (for better absorption)
  • Free of growth hormones or antibiotics

Healing is a gut feeling

Having an out-of-whack gut is not a fun time. Collagen can contribute to digestive complaints thanks to one of its key components, glutamine, which has been shown to help with:

  • Healing and reinforcing the gut lining
  • Preventing inflammation

What to look for in your collagen for gut healing:

  • Type 3 collagen
  • Hydrolyzed (for better absorption)
  • Free of growth hormones or antibiotics

Inside the body, three types of collagen run the show: we call them Type 1, Type 2 and Type 3. Pretty easy to remember, right?


Different collagen types are extracted from different animal origins, and provide different benefits. Knowing the origin of a collagen supplement will help you determine if it’s the right fit for your needs!

I swear by it

I have been using this product for over a month now and wow, what a difference. I have fibromyalgia and am finding that it has helped reduce the pain and inflammation in my muscles and joints. I add it to my coffee in the mornings. It dissolves in seconds and has no flavour so it's easy to use. I swear by it now. 

Obsessed

I can’t say enough good things about this product. Only thing that has helped my hair grow after being dead for so long. I have been consistent with taking it every day and am loving the benefits! Thanks, Organika 🙏🏼

What our customers say

Surprised and amazed!

I was originally recommended to take collagen to help with my flexibility and help with my muscle soreness. I have to say when I heard first I was quite skeptical. I decided to try because I was always feeling quite sore. Results that were immediate was that I felt I wouldn’t be as sore after a workout the day after.

Let’s back it up and explain exactly what collagen is. Collagen is a type of protein that is made up mainly of the following amino acids: glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline.  

The amino acid molecules combine to form a long chain which becomes a helix and eventually collagen fibrils. These fibrils can also further twist and bind together to create fibers, and so on. Collagen fibrils and fibers give it the structure to support various areas of the body.

Collagen is found in connective tissue, skin, tendons, bones, and cartilage.
