Collagen. Why you'll love it!
Hair & Nails
Did you know that by the age of 40, the body has lost 30% of its entire collagen levels?
Why collagen is so important
Collagen is the 'glue', which helps our skin, hair, joints and even our digestive system function.
However, collagen production starts to slow significantly from the age of 20.
Loss of collagen contributes to the signs of ageing. Supplementing with collagen early is key to reducing fine lines and maintaining our tissue health from the inside!
How our collagen declines with age
Our fibroblast cells are responsible for producing collagen naturally in our body.
However these cells decrease activity due to ageing and cause visible signs of ageing including fine lines, wrinkles & joint pain.
It is important we compensate for these lower collagen levels in our body as we age.
Choosing the right type of collagen
Your skin is composed of 80% Type 1 collagen, which is the most important and only type of collagen we use in our capsules.
The collagen found in our capsules is Type 1 Hydrolysed, which means it is more easily absorbed and transported to the dermis of the skin!

Commonly Asked Questions
Collagen is one of the body’s essential building blocks. It is a protein that is naturally produced and replenished in our bodies, accounting for nearly 75% of all the protein in our bodies found primarily in dermal tissue.
Unfortunately, collagen production starts declining as we get older from around the age of 25-30. Our bodies continue to make less collagen every year, and this can contribute to the signs of aging such as wrinkles, sagging skin, joint pain, and a slower dermal metabolism. So it’s important that you supplement that loss in your body to counteract the physical effects of aging and encourage the natural production of collagen.
The Collagen blend in our HydroPro+ Capsules provides the nourishment that keeps your skin, hair, and nails vibrant, smooth and healthy! Our formula also promotes joint health.
The Dalton weight of some hydrolysed collagen supplements is 5000 Da, whereas we at The Pretty Smart Food Co use the much more absorbable 2000 Da
A survey among 954 customers using The Pretty Smart Food Co® Collagen measured changes in wrinkles, pore size, age spots, and skin texture over the course of the study. The changes in skin appearance came more quickly than expected, with results coming in weeks, not months, and getting better over time. Here’s a brief overview of the amazing results:
In just 3 weeks 44% of participants showed improved skin texture, and at 8 weeks, 83% showed improved skin texture.
In just 4 weeks 65% of participants showed a significant reduction in wrinkles and fine lines, decreased age spots, and improvements in the overall look of their facial skin - with a brighter appearance.
Our capsules are easy to swallow, but if you have trouble swallowing capsules in general, you can easily break them apart and sprinkle the contents into juice / smoothies / yoghurt / porridge etc :)
