INGENIOUS Vegan collagen supplement uses a revolutionary, 100% plant based alternative to collagen, which is clinically proven to increase collagen synthesis in the dermal layers of the skin by up to 80%.  INGENIOUS Vegan collagen supplement for vegans is a 100% natural, plant-based vegan collagen supplement proven to improve collagen synthesis, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, strengthen hair and nails, improve joint strength and much more.

Why do you need collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body. It is found in skin, muscles, blood vessels and other tissues and structures and its main role is to impart strength to these systems. Collagen production declines as we age and since adequate collagen is required to maintain our joints and skin.  The outer layer of the skin is the epidermis. Beneath this is the dermis. Collagen makes up 75-80% of your skin, but as you age your collagen levels drop, leading to visible signs of ageing.

Many people rely on collagen supplements to replenish their stores, but since collagen can only be obtained from an animal source, vegans cannot take it.  Recognising this, INGENIOUS searched for a plant-based alternative to create a vegan collagen supplement, one that provides the benefits of a collagen-based supplement without using any collagen peptides.

After extensive searching they discovered a new plant-based ingredient that increases collagen synthesis in the dermal and epidermal layers of the skin by up to 80% and 60% respectively. They eamed this collagen super-synthesiser with Hyaluronic Acid, Astaxanthin and selected vitamins and minerals and the combination is proving a hit. Within days of launch, INGENIOUS Vegan was shortlisted for two prestigious industry awards and has been widely acclaimed for its ability to improve fine lines and wrinkles whilst rejuvenating skin radiance and hydration.

Collagen is a complex protein found in animals which is not found in plants. Marine collagen obtained from fish is yet another source however this nevertheless does not meet the needs for vegans and vegetarians. INGENIOUS Vegan provides a scientifically evaluated technology which enhances both collagen and hyaluronic acid levels in the body including skin to combat fine lines, wrinkles, loss of radiance and an uneven skin tone.

INGENIOUS Vegan collagen booster supplement contains:

  • Astrion™ - A patented vegan extract derived from Centella asiatica and Astragalus to bring wrinkled, aged, dehydrated and damaged skin back to life. Astrion™ has been shown to increase collagen synthesis in the dermal and epidermal layers of the skin which can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In studies, Astrion™ has been shown to increase collagen production by 60% in the epidermis and a substantial 80% in the dermis.
  • Vitamin C - Found at high levels in the epidermis (outer layer of skin) as well as the dermis (inner layer of skin). It contains antioxidant properties to fight free radicals and helps stimulate collagen production.
  • Vitamin E - As an antioxidant, vitamin E helps to prevent the oxidation of lipids within your cells. It also protects the fatty acids in your body and aids the skins natural healing power to keep it strong and healthy.
  • Zinc This important mineral helps with DNA synthesis and cell replication, playing a vital role in muscle repair and the mitigation of free radical damage. Studies show Zinc helps to keep hair, skin, and nails looking and feeling younger.
  • Natural Astaxanthin.
  • Hyaluronic Acid Complex Often called the 'fountain of youth' and occurring naturally in our bodies.

What is Astrion
Astrion™ is a proprietary blend of highly purified and fractionated extracts of two Chinese Qi herb: Astragalus membranaceus and Centella asiatica.

  • Astragalus membranaceus, also known as Milkvetch, is considered to be one of the most important traditional Chinese medicines and has been used with various different natural remedies and herbal blends. This plant may reduce the physical and metabolic effects of ageing.
  • Centella asiatica, also known as Indian Pennywort, is a traditional medicine that is mostly used and renowned in Ayurveda but has some usage in traditional Chinese medicine. This plant may inhibit a group of enzymes that break down collagen while simultaneously increasing the rate that collagen is synthesized.

Why is Astrion so important?
As all collagen is derived from animal sources, supplements containing collagen are not suitable for vegans. However, collagen is a vital component of the body playing a crucial part in our body’s structure. This includes our skin, hair and nails and internally our bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, muscles and organs. As we age our collagen levels reduce, leading to the physical signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles.  Astrion™, being completely derived from plant sources is an effective alternative to taking actual collagen. It has been shown to support the body in maintaining its existing collagen and also help stimulate further production.

The science of Astrion™
Astrion™ works by triggering the body’s regeneration mechanisms to increase the synthesis of new collagen and hyaluronic acid. In clinical studies Astrion™ has been shown to increase collagen synthesis in the dermal layers of the skin by up to 80% and in the epidermal layers of the skin by up to 60%. It also improves hyaluronic acid synthesis (the molecule that keeps the skin looking and feeling soft and hydrated) by up to 20%. By enhancing the body’s own natural ability to create more of these vital compounds, Astrion™ is able to improve the quality of the skin.  In clinical trials it has been shown to work as a collagen stimulant, reducing lines and wrinkles by 15% and lowering the melanin index of the skin by 17% after 4 weeks.  Astrion™ can be used in place of collagen, or even alongside collagen to enhance its effects.
