Ultimate Guide to Keto Collagen

Posted by Bridgette Clare (she/her), Nutritionist, RHN on

Your skin looks soooo good, you’re glowing, you’re radiant from the inside out. These are the things you want to be saying to yourself in the mirror. You’re also smart, strong and powerful, but you already knew that. 

If you want glowing skin, healthy hair and strong nails then you need collagen in your life. 

 

What Is Collagen?

As one of the more abundant proteins in the body, collagen is a structural protein that plays an important role in the health of hair, skin, nails and joints. The outer layers of our skin are primarily made of collagen making it important for maintaining that “getting more youthful as you age” look.

We naturally produce collagen through breaking down dietary protein but collagen decreases as we age, starting as early as in our 20s, so we need to ensure we’re adding it to our diet.

You can get collagen by eating a variety of protein rich foods such as beef and chicken throughout the day. However if you follow a plant-based diet or don’t have time to be preparing these foods a collagen supplement is a convenient option. 

Our Keto Collagen contains sustainably sourced, functional, and clinically tested ingredients and it tastes amazing. We use only the most efficacious, highly absorbable, pure hydrolyzed marine collagen and premium grass fed, rBGH hormone free whey isolate. The combination of these two proteins creates a high quality protein with all essential amino acids.

What Are the Benefits of Pure Marine Collagen?

Collactive™ Pure Marine Collagen is 100% marine based and composed of collagen and elastin peptides formulated in the same ratio found naturally in human skin. It’s provided by CTPP Copalis, representing a cooperative of fisheries in Boulogne-sur-Mer on the North Coast of France. Collactive™ is sustainably produced.

 

What Makes It Keto?

Keto is short for ketogenic. It’s a way of eating where you consume calories from high fat, moderate protein and low carbohydrates. Taking yourself back to the 2000’s, after a night out, did you have a friend who said Yeah! to Usher and no to pizza, because carbs? Did that same friend forgo the s’mores and eat a brick of cheese on a camping trip? Or was that just us? If you feel us, you more than likely had a friend who was trying out a low carb diet. But as with everything, quality matters and we get wiser as we age (we may produce less collagen, but we get wiser) which is why low-carb or keto-friendly eating isn’t just about saying no to carbs. It’s about consuming the majority of your calories from high quality protein and fats, like MCT. 

 

Do I Need to Eat Keto to Use Natreve Keto Collagen?

Not at all. You don’t need to subscribe to this way of eating to enjoy the benefits (and taste) of Natreve Keto Collagen. If it speaks to you, it’s for you. 

 

What’s MCT?

Natreve Keto Collagen contains MCT 70 on Acacia (MCT 70%, Acacia 30%). MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) are your body's preferred source of energy. MCTs are quickly metabolized into ketones, providing lasting energy to your body.

Acacia fiber is a prebiotic that promotes gut and cellular health. It doesn’t spike your blood sugar like fillers found in other MCT powders do.
