Vegan Pro Collagen is a complete nutritional package, supplying the key building blocks for collagen formation ? the correct collagen amino acids at ideal ratios, sufficient protein, and collagen co-factor vitamin C. This unique vegan protein powder is the first of its kind to mirror the nutritional profile of collagen, enriched with ideal ratios of glycine, proline and hydroxyproline ? the most abundant amino acids in collagen. Each serving offers 11g of protein, from a total of 21 broad-spectrum amino acids, including the essential 9, with vitamin C as a co-factor to promote collagen synthesis and protect against collagen degradation.
Most vegan collagen boosters supply only the collagen co-factors, relying on the diet to supply sufficient protein and the right kinds of amino acids to synthesise collagen. Sourcing the 3 main collagen amino acids from plant-based diets is challenging, however, especially for hydroxyproline, which is almost absent from plant-based foods. As such, un-supplemented vegan diets must rely on adequate intake of proline and vitamin C for hydroxyproline synthesis, nutrients which are often prioritised to support other essential functions over collagen production. Vegan protein intake also tends to be lower, and the proteins from plant foods can be harder to digest. Since it is a complete protein and supplies 11g per serving, Vegan Collagen is also suitable as a general protein powder supplement and is ideal for anyone seeking plant-based alternatives to standard collagen protein powders.
