Vollagen | The Vegan alternative to Collagen


The Vegan Alternative to Collagen
Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the body where its key role is to manufacture connective tissue. It is a major component of bone, skin, muscles, tendons, and cartilage where it helps to make tissues strong and resilient, and capable of withstanding stretching. The ageing process results in a reduction of collagen production but other factors such as excess sun, free radical exposure, poor diet and inactivity also speed up collagen degradation. Collagen supplementation has become a popular and effective way to provide the raw materials needed to maintain and enhance this connective tissue within the body. However, true collagen in supplements is always derived from an animal source, such as cattle or fish.
Vollagen | The Vegan alternative to Collagen

What’s Vollagen®?

Vollagen® is a complex of amino acids providing precisely the same proportion as those found within human collagen, but with key advantages over typical collagen supplementation:
Produced using a proprietary, multi-step fermentation and microencapsulation process, resulting in the creation of an amino acid blend rather than simply a combination of individual amino acids.
100% suitable for vegans and is ethically and sustainably sourced.
Free from contamination with heavy metals and other toxic elements that may occur in animal-derived collagen.
From non-GM corn and free from common allergens.
The amino acids in Vollagen® are already isolated and are therefore absorbed readily into the body.
Vollagen® provides the building blocks for all human collagen types. Supplementing with Vollagen® allows the body to utilise these building blocks in the most appropriate ways depending on individual needs.
*Vollagen® is a registered trademark of Chrysalis Health & Beauty Ltd. depending on individual needs.

Vollagen® Amino Acid Blend

Vollagen® is a fermented amino acid blend rather than a combination of individual amino acids.
The ingredient is a water-dispersible complex of amino acids produced using a proprietary fermentation and microencapsulation process.
The specific method of fermentation produces the desired ratio and blend of amino acids, as opposed to simply combining individual amino acids which exhibit very low solubility.
The composition is >99% amino acids with the following breakdown:
Amino Acid Level
L-Alanine 8.5 - 10,5%
L-Arginine HCI 6.5 - 8.5%
L-Aspartic Acid 4.5 - 6.5%
L-Glutamic Acid 8.5 - 10.5%
Glycine 20 - 23%
L-Histidine 0.5 - 1.5%
L-Isoleucine 1.0% - 3.0%
L-Leucine 2.0 - 4.0%
L-Lysine HCI 2.5- 4.5%
L-Methionine 0.5 - 1.0%
L-Proline 11.5 - 14.5%
L-Serine 2.5 - 4.5%
L-Threonine 1.0 - 3.0%
L-Tyrosine 0.5 - 1.0%
L-Valine 1.5 - 3.5%
L-Phenylalanine 1.5 - 3.5%
Hydroxyproline 10.5 - 13.5%
Hydroxylysine 0.3 - 0.8%
