For proof that supplements can look good, taste good, and do good, look no further than Dose & Co. The Kardashian-approved brand is making moves in the wellness industry with its easy to use, multitasking collagen supplements, which can be mixed into everything from brownies to smoothies to quickly and easily replenish collagen levels.
But first, what is collagen?
Collagen is a protein found in your bones, tissues, tendons, and skin – it’s essential to overall health and helps skin to maintain hydration and elasticity so it appears firm and supple. Although our bodies are capable of making their own collagen (and do so in the earlier stages of our lives), collagen production reduces as we age, leading to signs of aging, which is why many people choose to take collagen supplements. Here’s seven reasons why Dose & Co are worth trying.
The brand was founded by a nutritionist
Founder, Libby Matthews began studying nutrition naturopathy to better understand the health conditions she’d suffered with for years. Throughout her studies, she struggled to find supplements that weren’t loaded with unnecessary fillers and sweeteners, which is when she first had the idea of creating her own brand using high quality, ethically sourced ingredients.
They help to trigger new collagen formation
Collagen supplements work by providing the body with the right amino acids, vitamins, and minerals it needs to form new collagen production. User trials show that 89% of people felt their skin looked healthier after a month of using Dose & Co supplements and 81% of people observed their nails growing stronger, too.
There are multiple ways to use them
As well as offering a regular collagen powder, Dose & Co have also formulated their collagen blend into a range of creamers and a selection of protein powders, all of which can be blended into coffee, milk, smoothies, water, and can easily be used in recipes. If you’re making pancakes, protein balls, banana bread, or hot chocolate, it’s easy to add a scoop into the mix.
Dose & Co are on a mission to be as eco-friendly as possible in all aspects of their supply chain. You’ll notice that their packaging is entirely plastic free.
They use premium ingredients
Dose & Co use only the highest-quality ingredients in their formulations, which are free from binders, fillers, and GMOs, ensuring that each serving boasts an impressive 10g of collagen. Dose & Co’s collagen blend is made up from both bovine collagen (from cows) and marine collagen (from fish). Marine collagen is made from type one collagen, and bovine collagen is made from type one and type three collagen. These are the most abundant types in the human body, and help to maintain the structure of skin, hair, and nails.
They use hydrolyzed collagen
Both types of Dose & Co collagen use hydrolyzed collagen (also known as collagen peptides). Hydrolyzed collagen has been processed into tiny particles so it’s easier for your body to absorb.
They have dairy-free options
There are no complete sources of vegan collagen (which means that only the brand’s Plant-Based Protein Powders are vegan), but Dose & Co does offer a range of dairy-free creamers which are formulated with coconut milk.
