Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, helps your body form blood vessels, muscle tissue and collagen. It can also assist your body in healing. Since we cannot produce vitamin C naturally, we get it from our diets by consuming leafy greens, fruits and vegetables. You can also take a vitamin C supplement like our vegan Beauty Boost Capsules to boost, or maintain, your vitamin C levels. Our Glow Collagen Shot also contains vitamin C. The daily recommended amount of vitamin C is about 75 milligrams for women, and 90 for men.

As you may already know, our natural collagen production begins to decline as we grow older. Luckily, our product lineup helps to combat this fact. From Collagen Creamers to Bone Broth Collagen, we offer different ways to get every type of person their daily collagen fix, depending on their need and preference.

Additionally, our fan-favorite Collagen Peptides is also available. Each serving contains 20 grams of collagen. It is also our most versatile product, seeing as it can be mixed into hot and cold liquids as well as sweet and savory foods. The same can’t be said for our Collagen Creamer, which is mostly used in beverages and desserts. Our Bone Broth Collagen powder, which is primarily reserved for hot beverages and stews. No matter which you end up trying out, feel assured that you’re taking one step toward promoting healthy skin, hair, nails and joints.

Vitamin C & Collagen: The Bottom Line

You’ll often hear it’s necessary to combine vitamin C with collagen to get the full benefits of your collagen supplement. This is partially true; vitamin C is a nutrient that can help boost your body’s natural production of collagen. However, consuming vitamin C at the same time you take your supplement is not necessary to get the full benefits of collagen.
