If there are additional, beneficial ingredients—such as vitamins and minerals or botanical bioactives—they can help create a more holistic product to achieve your desired effects (or if you want just collagen, that’s great too!).*
Look for research backing up why the ingredients were added and thoughtful explanations of the overall formulas.
On the other end, make sure the formula is clean. Less is more here: Skip artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, gluten, GMOs, soy, gluten, and known allergens. If your collagen product has flavors, look for natural varieties (such as organic cocoa, organic vanilla).
If there’s a sweetener, we recommend natural plant-derived sources like organic monk fruit extract or organic coconut sugar.
