Welcome to #VitalVersity, where our in-house wellness experts break down the latest health trends, new Vital Proteins® products & more.
We at Vital Proteins® believe wellness is vital – especially if it involves collagen. Our blue tub, which houses our unflavored, bovine-sourced Collagen Peptides, is a favorite among influencers, fitness experts and even tops our CCO Jennifer Aniston's list of wellness must-haves. And VERISOL®, a standout ingredient you’ll be seeing a lot more of in future VP innovations, will soon be a mainstay in your daily wellness regimen.
But what is VERISOL®? And how is it different from our Collagen Peptides or Marine Collagen offerings? We enlisted our in-house functional nutrition expert, Olivia Peláez, to give us a breakdown on the ingredient that’s found in our bite-sized Collagen Gummies. Keep reading to raise your collagen IQ.
First Things First, What Is VERISOL®?
Simply, VERISOL® is a patented collagen peptide that's sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine. Its bioactive collagen peptides stimulate the fibroblast cells in the dermal layer of the skin to increase their collagen production. This results in higher production of dermal collagen and overall helps combat what is lost through aging and environmental influences.
What Are The Benefits?
The benefits are glowing! Not only does VERISOL® improve hair, skin and nails,** but it also reduces fine lines and wrinkles.**^

What Type Of Collagen Can Be Found In VERISOL®?
Just like our Collagen Peptides, VERISOL® contains both Types I and III of collagen. Type I collagen is the most prevalent type of collagen in the body. This is the type of collagen you’re probably thinking about if you’re interested in preserving the levels of collagen in your skin, hair or nails.** The third commonly found type of collagen, Type III, is generally found in reticular fibers, such as in the bone marrow. It’s usually found alongside Type I collagen in the body.
Is VERISOL® Collagen The Same As Collagen Peptides?
Aside from both forms of collagen being sourced from bovine, there is a key differentiator. "VERISOL® collagen differs from Collagen Peptides in that the former works at a concentrated dose of 2.5g per serving," Peláez tells Lively, adding, "while our Collagen Peptides supports healthy hair, skin, nails, bones and joints** at an ideal dose of 20g per serving."
Can VERISOL® Collagen & Collagen Peptides Be Taken Together?
"Think of our Collagen Peptides as the foundation, and our Collagen Gummies as a bite-sized, delicious boost to your daily collagen intake," says Peláez. "These Wellness Gummies are meant to complement your current routine – not replace it."
