Vegan Collagen: What is and how does it work?


Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and is responsible for the formation and firmness of, among other things, the skin, bones, muscles, cartilage, joints and tendons.

The body produces collagen itself, but from the age of 25, the collagen can decrease by 1 to 2% per year. The older you get, the less collagen your body can contain. In women, the decline process can accelerate during menopause.

Replenishing collagen is therefore recommended for maintaining firm skin and a supple body. This is possible with animal collagen, but also with vegan or vegetable collagen. There is, however, a significant difference between the two.  

What is vegan collagen

Unlike animal collagen, vegan collagen is not made from animals. So it is a collagen that is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Vegan collagen consists of various ingredients that stimulate the production of the body's own collagen. In a laboratory, yeasts and bacteria are transformed into collagen building blocks. Other vitamins and minerals are also added that stimulate the production of collagen. Together this forms a vegetable or vegan collagen. It is often easy to digest if the product contains substances such as vitamin C and zinc. These are quickly absorbed by the body. 

What is the difference between vegan collagen and animal collagen?

Animals and humans produce collagen. Plants don't do this. That is also the reason why collagen mainly comes from beef, fish or chicken. Vegan or vegetable collagen therefore does not contain real collagen, but vegetable substances that support the body in the production of the body's own collagen. The term Collagen Booster actually fits better with these products on the market.

Does vegan collagen work just as well as animal collagen?

No research has yet been done on the fact that vegan collagen is as effective as animal collagen. It is true that vegan collagen only provides the building blocks to stimulate the production of your own collagen. Unlike animal collagen, which literally replenishes the collagen from within. So beware of online claims of the efficacy of vegan collagen.


Vegan or vegetable collagen is therefore a good substitute for vegetarians and vegans. Whether it works just as well is doubtful. It is not real collagen but only stimulates the production of your own collagen by supplying the right building materials.

If you prefer animal collagen with proven efficacy, take a look at the Anti-Aging Beauty Collagen Complex.

RevitalTrax Anti-Aging Beauty Collagen Complex is formulated with a proprietary technology of natural VERISOL®which breaks down collagen into Bioactive Collagen Peptides® building blocks. The quality of collagen depends on the average molecular size. Hydrolyzed collagen consists of very small peptides with a low molecular weight. The molecular size of VERISOL® collagen peptides is 2,000 Daltons. The average molecular size of a collagen peptide is between 3,000 and 5,000 Daltons. The hydrolyzed peptides of VERISOL® have thus been made even smaller. This low molecular weight makes it easy to digest and more easily absorbed and distributed in the body.

The Anti-Aging Beauty Collagen Complex is also formulated with the patented Ester C®, zinc and biotin. So hair and nails also get a boost.
