Take your favorite collagen protein products on the go with Vital Proteins’ new Collagen Peptides and Marine Collagen capsules.
Want all the benefits of Collagen Peptides, but not big on mixing them into your coffee, smoothies, or juice? Vital Proteins is now offering our signature Collagen Peptides and Marine Collagen in capsule form, allowing you to enjoy all the benefits of collagen on the go.
The capsules are just as nourishing and nutritious as the signature Collagen Peptides and Marine Collagen. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and forms the basis for all of the body’s connective tissues, including skin, hair, nails, bones, tendons, cartilage, and joints. The body can produce collagen on its own, but as we age, our collagen production slows. This is one of the reasons that aging coincides with the loss of elasticity in the skin and the weakening of bones and joints.
But aging isn’t the only factor that can slow collagen production. In order to produce collagen, the body needs an ample supply of collagen’s building blocks: amino acids. The amino acids necessary for collagen production are glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, and arginine.
Ingesting amino acid-rich collagen not only nourishes the body with collagen, it supplies the body with the amino acids it needs to produce its own. There are numerous benefits of collagen, including the promotion of healthy skin and balanced nutrition for athletic performance.
Collagen Peptides Capsules
Inspired by Vital Proteins’ signature Collagen Peptides, these tiny little capsules pack a huge nutritional punch. They’re a fantastic source of collagen protein, and are gluten-free, dairy-free, non-GMO Project Verified, Paleo-friendly, and Whole30-approved.
Just like our Collagen Peptides powder supplement, our capsules are sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine hides from Brazil and are always tested to ensure superior quality.
Marine Collagen Capsules
Whether you’re a pescatarian or you simply prefer fish protein to bovine protein, Vital Proteins’ Marine Collagen Capsules are a fantastic option. Like the Collagen Peptides capsules, these easy-to-take supplements are rich in natural collagen.
Our Marine Collagen capsules sustainably sourced from wild-caught, non-GMO Project Verified red snapper, making them a healthy source of protein for both your body and the planet. Marine Collagen is also extremely bioavailable, which means that it’s easily and efficiently absorbed by the body.
The Benefits of Collagen Peptides and Marine Collagen
Collagen, a clean and natural ingredient, can improve skin moisture and contribute to nourished, glowing skin, strong nails, and healthy hair. Several studies have demonstrated that collagen peptides are highly digestible. More than 90% of collagen peptides are digested and absorbed when taken orally (1).
Of course, the skin isn’t the only part of the body that needs collagen to function well. The bones and joints also rely on collagen, making it an important component of an active lifestyle. Studies have shown that collagen peptide supplementation may reduce the risk of injury on muscle, tendons, and ligaments in athletes (2).
Why Capsules vs. Powder?
Both Vital Proteins’ powder supplements and our new capsules provide similar benefits for health and well-being. They promote youthful skin, healthier hair, stronger nails, joint health, and bone health.
However, our capsules give you additional flexibility in when and where you can boost your protein and collagen intake. You can take them with you on the go, bring them along while traveling, and rest assured that you can easily boost your collagen intake even if there’s no blender nearby.
Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides and Marine Collagen capsules offer the following benefits:
- Bioavailable: Digested and absorbed by the body quickly for maximum benefits.
- Beneficial: Same great benefits as Vital Proteins Collagen Peptide or Marine Collagen powder forms.
- Active Amino Acids: A great source of the amino acids proline and glycine, which help promote healthy immune, digestive, and central nervous systems.
- Easy to use: Take when you want, where you want, no blending or mixing required.
