Everyone has heard of collagen.  But do you really know what it is and why it’s important to your overall health?  Read on to learn more!!!


Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It is a primary building block of skin, hair, nails, bones, tendons, joints, and cartilage. It is considered the “glue that holds the body together”.


When we get older, the production of collagen begins to slow down and cell structures start losing their strength. Collagen provides the building blocks for skin, hair, tendon, cartilage, bones and joints. Supplementing with collagen is a vital way to help your body rejuvenate and stay youthful.


Want to look and feel younger? Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body ensuring the health and vitality of your skin, hair, tendon, cartilage, bones and joints. Maintaining the amount of collagen promotes youthful skin, healthier hair, and stronger nails.


Collagen represents up to 90% of organic bone mass and is a major component of ligaments, joints, and tendons. Supplementing our diet to ensure that our bodies are enriched with collagen is an important key to good health and a full life.



Vital Proteins helps people feel better and live fuller lives through sustainably-sourced nutrition products, promoting health, fitness and natural beauty. Their products provide nourishing collagen and promote the production of collagen – an essential nutrient stripped from our diets by modern food-processing.

Collagen is a natural and healthy ingredient that has been used for centuries.  Collage-rich foods are a large part of traditional diets.  Our ancestors utilized whole-animal nutrition, which provided an abundant amount of collagen, the native form of gelatin.  Over time, we have lost touch with this powerful, healing superfood.

We know that while our bodies’ collagen production slows as we age, our need for it only grows as our bodies become less efficient and we maintain a vibrant life. And Vital Proteins believes that if you want to, you can make the most out of every moment you’re given – that your body shouldn’t be a limitation, but a catalyst.

Vital Protien products are natural sources of essential proteins, sourced from pasture-raised cows in Brazil and New Zealand and wild-caught fish in Hawaii.  There’s nothing more important than one’s health, and Vital Protein believes the body needs and deserves high-quality building blocks for life’s adventures.

Whether we can help add a mile to your run, a glow to your complexion or just enrich your naturally vibrant life, there’s a protein for everyone, and more than one reason to love Vital Proteins.
