Bioactive Collagen Peptides
Collagen peptides are incredible for your skin, but the quality that you choose is important if you want to see results.
The human body naturally produces its own collagen, in fact, it’s the major structural component of skin, comprising about 80% of its dry weight. Skin properties, however, are known to be affected by factors including aging, diet, nutrition, ultraviolet radiation, toxicity, and hormones. That is why collagen supplements can become beneficial for the quality of your skin as we start to age, as our bodies stop producing the same amounts as it once did naturally. However, there are a lot of collagen products on the market that won’t do a whole lot, so look at those with science to back them up.
Australian Kakadu Plum is a super food that is unparallel to pretty much any other superfood in the space. It is one of the world’s highest natural sources of Vitamin C and can contain up to 50 times the concentration found in oranges. Vitamin C is important to skin health and crucial in regard to producing your own natural collagen to give your skin that plump dewy complexion.
While most people have had Vitamin C before, it is often only used when we have a cold or flu due the immune benefits that come with it. However, Vitamin C is a great supplement to include in your diet year-round as it a strong antioxidant that is very important for collagen production which helps to diminish fine lines and firm up your skin.

Biotin is also known as B7. The word “biotin” comes from the ancient Greek word “biotos” which means “life: or “substance”
We can suffer from suboptimal Biotin levels due to antibiotic use, stress, dysbiosis, alcohol, smoking, breastfeeding, and pregnancy. Research shows that 87% of women suffering from alopecia, a condition causing hair loss, have suboptimal levels of Biotin.
