Collagen+ is a synergistic, multi-action blend with a replenishing berry-flavoured superfood powder, designed with Kakadu Plum, Davidson Plum & Verisol Collagen(R) to support skin, hair and nail health.
Science Meets Nature: The Ingredients Behind Collagen+
Verisol F is fish derived bioactive collagen peptides that support skin integrity. Fish derived collagen peptides have been shown to improve skin elasticity and reduce wrinkles.
Kakadu plum (Gubinge) is nutrient rich and rich in antioxidant phytonutrients. It contains vitamin E, zinc, gallic acid, ellagic acid, bioflavonoids such as quercetin, hesperetin, kaempferol, luteolin and anthocyanins. Additionally, Kakadu plum contains the highest levels of vitamin C derived from plants. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant nutrient and a cofactor in enzyme reactions like collagen synthesis. It can protect the cells from free radical damage, regenerates vitamin E, and enhances iron absorption. The antioxidant properties of various phytonutrients can help protect cells from oxidative stress and damage caused by free radicals. The composition of plant nutrients that can be found in Kakadu plum make it an antioxidant powerhouse.
Zinc supports skin health. It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and is used for a variety of skin conditions including acne and eczema.
LactoSpore® (Bacillus coagulans)
Bacillus coagulans is a spore-forming probiotic. This means that it has the ability to germinate/colonize in the intestinal tract to provide probiotic benefits. It appears to encourage diversity and stability in the gut microbiome. Additionally, Bacillus coagulans tolerate hostile environments like gastric acid in the stomach so it can get into the intestinal tract and do its thing. Based on preliminary findings, Bacillus coagulans appear to have the potential to support skin health, including reducing wrinkles and improving skin integrity by decreasing oxidative stress and protecting extracellular matrix proteins.

Davidson’s plum contains vitamin E, zinc and magnesium, plus antioxidant phytonutrients such as anthocyanins, ellagic acid, rutin, quercetin and other functional bioactive plant-nutrients. Antioxidants phytonutrients such as anthocyanins and quercetin can reduce excess free radicals which could be beneficial in supporting healthy aging.
