Health and beauty concepts have been fundamentally challenged, changing the way we look at skin regimes. Enter – collagen-based supplements. They are the new keystone in the ageing process, with a proven ability to give you that youthful and healthy appearance of your skin.
To look and feel your best, understanding the below three elements will help you achieve optimal results in an effective and safe way:
- The best nutrients to consume in your skin supplement routine
- The right amount of collagen to take daily
- The best way to take collagen (liquid vs powder vs pill)
1. Food for skin health
Look out for these top 4 healthy foods/nutrients proven to help fight the signs of ageing:

- Promotes collagen production
VITAMIN C FOODS:
Blackcurrants, blueberries, broccoli, guava, kiwi fruits, oranges, papaya, strawberries and sweet potatoes.
TOP TIP: When taken with a source of Iron, Vitamin C improves the absorption of both ingredients! So, why not try combinations like: spinach + freshly squeezed lemon, dates + oranges/kiwis or figs + blueberries/broccoli?

Whole grains, nuts, seeds and animal proteins are rich in Zinc.

Collagen is a protein and an essential component of your skin, hair and nails.
- Hydrolysed collagen helps the body to form new collagen structures by providing the amino acid building blocks of the protein
- Helps to stimulate the production of new collagen, elastin and moisture-retaining hyaluronic acid molecules.
GOLD COLLAGEN MULTIDOSE® is formulated with the highest quality of ingredients including Vitamins C, E and Zinc, in addition to Hydrolysed Collagen.
Did you know the Hydrolysed Collagen within Gold Collagen Multidose can be digested to form small peptides and amino acids which are easily absorbed and distributed by the blood stream throughout the whole body and skin?
2. The right amount of collagen to take daily:
To make sure you’re getting the most out of your collagen supplement, you need to know what the right amount of collagen is to take daily.
Your body is limited in its ability to use collagen peptides. Independent research has proven that skin benefits can be delivered using 5 grams daily and that higher doses have no further benefit. ¹
GOLD COLLAGEN MULTIDOSE® contains 2.5 grams of hydrolysed collagen per spoonful which can be taken daily or this dosage can be doubled to increase the amount of daily collagen intaketo 5 grams of collagen as the optimal daily dose. Adding 5 grams of collagenallows room to mix the formulation with other important ingredients and bring additional support in the process of collagen production and protection.
Any collagen dosage higher than 5 grams has not shown any incremental health benefit in delivering greater results. We know that the more collagen in a product, the greater the possibility of having an upset tummy. So, 5 grams is the optimal quantity to ingest in a single dose and delivers the best skin benefits with low risk for discomfort.²
3. The best way to take collagen (Liquids vs Powders vs Tablets)
Experts agree liquids are the easiest to ingest, as many experience difficulties in swallowing big tablets or dry, unpleasant textured powders.
Furthermore, liquids have more volume to supply more ingredients at higher doses for greater benefits and nutrients as compared to powders and pills and is more readily absorbed in the gut.
Therefore, having the right ingredients in the right doses in the right delivery systems, can help you maximise your skincare journey to allow you to achieve the best results.
GOLD COLLAGEN MULTIDOSE® has been specially formulated to offer a unique combination of up to 5 grams of hydrolysed collagen per 2 spoonfuls along with 10 additional active ingredients for younger-looking skin and healthy looking hair and strong nails.
