Keep reading to learn more about our plant-based collagen boost powders and how, when, and why you should start using them. 


What Is Collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. It’s a structural protein of different connective tissues and is made from amino acids glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, and arginine. Collagen is one of the major building blocks in our bodies and helps to keep our joints healthy, hair, strong, and skin supple.*


Why We Need Collagen

The human body naturally produces collagen on its own. However, as we surpass the age of 25 our bodies slowly lose the ability to synthesize enough collagen on their own. On top of this, our modern diet contains minimal traces of natural collagen.* By supplementing your diet with a plant-based collagen boost blends you’re able to help support your body’s natural ability to synthesize more collagen – without the need to consume animal products (bonus!).*


Why Vegan Collagen Boost Powders?

Typical collagen powders on the market are not vegan. They most often come in the form of bovine hides (cow skin), fish scales, or eggshells. Not the most appetizing if you really think about it, but that’s where Copina Co. comes in!

Plant-based alternatives like Copina Co. are able to provide the same benefits of consuming animal-based collagen peptides but in plant-based and vegan form. Our ingredients in our collagen boost powders contain amino acids, vitamins, and minerals that are essential to the collagen production process.* This means all the amazing hair, skin, and nail benefits you could want but in a totally delicious plant-based form!*

We encourage you to read more about vegan collagen and our ingredients here.

How to Use Plant-Based Collagen Boost Powder

What makes our vegan collagen boost powders so great (besides all the amazing added benefits) is how simple they are to incorporate into your daily routine. Think water, smoothies, baked goods, lattes – the list goes on and we’ve rounded up some of our favorite ways to use our plant-based collagen boosters below. First, there are a few helpful tips we’d like to dish on to make sure you're getting all the tasty and skin-boosting benefits our collagen boost powders have to offer.

First, mix our collagen boost powders with hot water or plant milk. By doing so you are able to not only enhance the amazing flavors and benefits, but it also ensures the powder fully dissolves.

We recommend combining the hot water and collagen boost powder by vigorously stirring with a spoon or using a blender or hand frother. Our collagen boost powder blends are formulated with plant-based botanicals like coconut, tremella mushroom, and hyaluronic acid. By both using hot water and blending at a high speed you’ll have a nice and smooth mixture! We make our collagen boost powders with organic coconut milk powder for taste and texture and don’t use any fillers or artificial anti-clumping agents, so some clumping at first is natural. That’s why we recommend preparing the powders in this way when using them in your drinks.

You can enjoy the blends as hot tonics or lattes or pour them over ice for a hot weather-friendly iced latte.
