Our founder reveals the inspiration behind our new supercharged collagen blend
It’s been our most requested product, and now it’s back! That’s right, you’ve been asking and we’ve listened, supercharging our hero formula to bring you The Collagen Elixir.
To celebrate the return of our collagen in revitalised formula, WelleCo founder Elle Macpherson answers all your most pressing questions about The Collagen Elixir.
What is The Collagen Elixir?
The Collagen Elixir is our amazing new collagen product, which I know you’ve all been waiting for because you’ve been DMing me so much about it! Thank you for being so patient with us and I promise the wait has been worth it.
When the team originally came to me many years ago with the idea to formulate a collagen product, I was initially hesitant. I was already nourishing my body with The Super Elixir™ every morning so I wasn’t sure what collagen could offer me. We’re always striving for excellence and effectiveness at WelleCo so I was happy to give it a go. After carefully researching the benefits and taking our marine collagen every day for eight weeks, I saw an incredible difference – my nails were stronger, my hair felt thicker, I was glowing and my body felt more flexible. I was converted!
After a few years of producing our hero collagen product and loving the difference it was making, I asked Dr. Simoné Laubscher to supercharge the benefits. The result? Together, we have created The Collagen Elixir – the most powerful collagen formula on the market. I’m so excited for you to experience WelleCo’s new full-powered collagen blend. It contains the highest dose of collagen from wild-caught fish, without any fishy taste. We’ve also included Hyaluronic Acid for hydration and Digestive Enzymes to ensure that our high dose of collagen is easily absorbed by the body.
The Collagen Elixir is a wonderful companion for your Welle routine, giving your body the inner stability and support it needs to empower you to feel radiant, comfortable and vibrant in your own skin.
What are the benefits of The Collagen Elixir?
Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the body. It occurs naturally in our bodies, holding all our cartilage, bones, blood vessels and skin together. I like to think of collagen as the building blocks that give strength and structure to our bodies, supporting us through our every movement. It makes up three quarters of your skin and a third of the total protein in your body.
Collagen is well-known for being an incredible supplement for skin, hair and nails, but there are actually so many other parts of our body that really benefit from collagen. Collagen is also vital for promoting healthy joints, reducing inflammation and overall pain that is often associated with ageing. It can even aid in gut and bone health.
Collagen production in our body begins to slow down as we get older, which is why offering your body some extra support becomes so important. The Collagen Elixir helps to replenish those waning collagen stores in your entire body so that your skin is firm, smooth and fresh, your hair looks shiny and thick, and your nails are strong.
Giving your joints and muscles an extra boost with our wild-caught marine collagen will also mean that you’ll feel comfortable and more flexible in your body. This blend also gives your body what it needs for repair and restore at the cellular level, reducing the appearance of aging, fine lines, age spots and wrinkles.
We’ve also included natural antioxidants like Vitamin C from Acerola Cherry and Beetroot to protect your skin. The Beetroot is actually what gives The Collagen Elixir it’s beautiful unique pink colour!
Who is The Collagen Elixir best for?
The Collagen Elixir is suitable for a wide range of people with different aims as it supports so many areas of our body (and it’s not just for women either – men can enjoy the incredible benefits of collagen too). It’s perfect for anyone looking to experience changes in their skin, hair, nails and the overall health of their body.
However if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, we would recommend speaking to your healthcare professional before using or commencing any new supplement routine to ensure that the product is right for you.
The Collagen Elixir also contains wild-caught marine collagen from fish, so it’s not suitable for vegans or vegetarians.
What is the difference between The Collagen Elixir and the original The Aquatic Collagen Super Booster?
We’re always striving for excellence here at WelleCo, and I felt that we could evolve our original The Aquatic Collagen Super Booster to create something even better. So a few years after we launched our original boosters, I asked Dr. Simoné Laubscher to supercharge the benefits of our hero collagen product, which evolved into The Collagen Elixir.
Together we have created the most effective formula on the market, with a larger serve of sustainably sourced type 1 marine collagen peptides (3500 mg) and the additions of Hyaluronic Acid for hydration and Digestive Enzymes to ensure that our high dose of collagen is easily absorbed by the body.
The Collagen Elixir is also now unflavoured and unsweetened to make it the most versatile option for you to enjoy, in the way that best suits you.
What is in The Collagen Elixir?
The Collagen Elixir is contains the highest dose of premium marine collagen peptides. Each serve contains 3.5g of sustainably sourced collagen from North Pacific wild-caught fish.
We’ve also included Hyaluronic Acid – a multi-tasking water-binding molecule that supports hydration and elasticity in the skin – a blend of Digestive Enzymes to help the body recognise absorb the high dose of collagen peptides.
There’s a mix of protective antioxidants, with natural Vitamin C from Acerola Cherry and Beetroot, to encourage a bright, even skin tone. The formula is also gluten-free, dairy-free and non-GMO, with no artificial colours or sweeteners.
Can I take The Collagen Elixir alongside other WelleCo products?
Yes definitely!! The Collagen Elixir, The Skin Elixir, The Super Elixir ™, Nourishing Protein and Sleep Welle Calming Tea are a powerful combination that we encourage to be taken alongside one another. I enjoy every product from our powerful WelleCo collection to support me at different times of the day.
We do always recommend consulting your Primary Healthcare Professional, such as your GP, Naturopath or Nutritionist, to discuss your supplementary routine first – particularly if you have any underlying health conditions or are on pharmaceutical medication – as they can advise on what suits your individual needs.
When should I take The Collagen Elixir?
Take The Collagen Elixir at a time of the day that suits you. I love to add it in to my morning smoothie – after my daily greens with The Super Elixir ™ and alongside my two capsules of The Skin Elixir. The unflavoured formula makes it really simple to include in my daily routine.
How do I take The Collagen Elixir?
Daily! Enjoy 4 g – or two level metric teaspoons – daily with 200 mL of water or the drink of your choice. Make sure that you always use a dry spoon and consume The Collagen Elixir within 60 days of opening.
