You’ll want to look for hydrolyzed collagen peptides, as research shows these peptides can support skin elasticity1, which is one factor that contributes to physical skin aging.* Another pro tip: To optimize collagen synthesis, you should look for vitamin C in your product, as your body cannot effectively produce collagen without vitamin C present2.* This ingredient doubles as an antioxidant, which we know is A+ for fighting off free radicals that cause oxidative stress in the skin and lead to photoaging.*
Next, you’ll want something that addresses internal skin hydration. in mbg’s beauty & gut collagen+, we chose to incorporate hyaluronic acid for this exact reason.* Hyaluronic acid is a key molecule involved in skin moisture3. In fact, 50% of the body’s total HA is in the skin4. But it’s also present in every tissue and fluid in the body. So it’s safe to say that maintaining your body’s hyaluronic acid levels is another key to achieving that youthful glow.*
And finally, you’ll want a powder formula that’s not too grainy and is actually invisible when it comes to taste (unless, of course, you opt for a flavored option, in which case you should make sure the ingredients are clean and free of added sugars). No one likes gritty coffee, so we made sure our unflavored collagen powder remains undetectable in your beverage. We also have a rich chocolate option (via organic cocoa), in case you prefer a delicious morning mocha.
Essentially, mbg’s cutting-edge collagen powder is an all-around beauty supplement that’s research-backed and easy to incorporate into your morning beverage. (Bonus: It’s sugar-free.)
