Did you know that up to 70 percent of your skin, hair and nails, and nearly 100 percent of your connective tissues, are made from collagen? In general, collagen also supports the integrity of your gut lining and promotes normal tissue growth and cellular health.
These are just a few reasons why collagen supplements — whether powders, capsules or gummies — are highly sought after, especially among adults in their 40s and beyond. Once someone reaches middle age, their body starts to experience a slow down in natural collagen production.
However, collagen supplements can help boost one’s intake and provide the body with the building blocks to create its own collagen. And now there's possibly the easiest (and fun) way to get collagen into your life: collagen gummies.
New Collagen Peptides Gummies
Introducing Ancient Nutrition’s Collagen Peptides Gummies (mixed berry flavor). We’ve packed the same head-to-toe benefits of Collagen Peptides powder into bite size, easy-to-take gummies that the whole family (at least the adults and children 4 and up) will love.
How do collagen gummies work? They provide the same type of collagen you’ll find in other collagen supplements, such as Multi Collagen Protein formulas or Collagen Peptides products.
At Ancient Nutrition, we believe we offer the best collagen gummies on the market because our gummies feature a proprietary fermented eggshell membrane collagen ingredient. Our eggshell membrane collagen ingredient has been tested in six human clinical trials and proven to offer benefits including support for healthy hair, skin and joints.
As a “clinically studied” ingredient, the fermented eggshell membrane collagen found within our gummies is supported by proven research, backed by peer-reviewed studies on healthy humans, and tested for efficacy, safety and transparency.
Benefits of Collagen Gummies
When taking our gummies, you can experience results, such as reduced exercise-induced joint discomfort, in as little as one day. You can also experience other results over time, such as resilient skin, healthy hair, flexible joints and more. The collagen within our peptide gummies has been intentionally formulated and fermented so it’s easy for your body to absorb and utilize.
Here are some of the benefits you can experience from Collagen Peptide Gummies:
- Supports hair growth.
- Improves the appearance of crow’s feet.
- Reduces joint discomfort and helps joints recover faster.
- Reduces collagen degradation with noticeable results.
- Supports a healthy gut and immune response.
How are our collagen gummies made?
We use hydrolyzed, fermented collagen in our collagen supplements to maximize absorption. Hydrolyzing collagen results in smaller collagen peptides (broken down amino acids) that are easy for your body to digest and use.
Are collagen gummies safe to take?
Yes; not only are they well-tolerated for the majority of adults, they offer bodywide benefits for your skin, joints, hair, gut and nails. As always, however, you should consult your healthcare professional prior to beginning any new dietary or lifestyle regimen, including dietary supplementation.
Note: If you’re a plant-based eater, our Vegetarian Collagen Peptides is another option for you.
How to Use
Is collagen good to take every day? Yes; a general recommendation for adults is to take collagen daily. You can take collagen peptides gummies either with a meal, or on an empty stomach. You should always read and follow label directions, however.
Our collagen peptides gummies have a delicious mixed berry flavor that tastes great all on its own. Each serving, which is 3 gummies, provides 500 milligrams of fermented eggshell membrane collagen. Either take all 3 at once, or spread your gummies out over the course of your day.
One serving of gummies contains 4 grams of sugar and also features 75 milligrams of calcium (about 6 percent of your daily needs). We sweeten our gummies with organic cane sugar, and they’re made without pesticide chemicals or artificial sweeteners.
