Collagen: What’s the difference between powder, liquid and tablets? 

Here’s how to choose the best collagen supplement for you.

Collagen can have some incredible benefits for your skin, hair, nails and joints, as well as your health and wellness. As we get older, our body’s natural collagen production decreases – taking a collagen supplement can support your collagen production and wellbeing.

However, choosing the right type of collagen supplement can feel overwhelming. With a variety of options available, like  powder, liquid, and tablets, understanding the differences between each different type of collagen supplement is really important. Here’s a closer look at each type of collagen supplement so you can work out which is best for you.

Collagen powder

Collagen powder is a dietary supplement derived from collagen that can be added to food or drinks, or taken by itself.

Pros of collagen powder

  • Collagen powder is versatile and can be used in plenty of different recipes or drinks easily. You can heat collagen powder too. This makes it a good choice if you want to add it to different things or you want to really disguise your collagen intake.
  • Collagen powder is often hydrolysed, meaning the collagen molecules are broken down into smaller, more easily absorbed particles. This enhances bioavailability, letting the body to absorb and utilise the collagen more efficiently. However, this isn’t always the case and some collagen powders have molecules that are too big to be absorbed correctly.
  • Powdered collagen allows users to customise their dosage easily, making it suitable if you have really specific or unusual collagen requirements that aren’t a standard measurement.

Cons of collagen powder

  • Some people may find the taste or texture of collagen powder unpleasant. There are lots of flavoured collagen powders out there, but it can take some trial and error to find the one you really like.
  • There’s some preparation time involved in collagen powder as you have to add it to other things usually. This might not be as convenient as you’d prefer, especially if you’re on the go or have a busy lifestyle.
  • The quality of powdered collagen can really vary – not all collagen powder is created equally. This can affect your results and the outcomes of taking a collagen supplement.

Liquid collagen

A liquid collagen supplement like Yuvãfy is a pre-mixed collagen supplement that’s easy and convenient to take, wherever you are. They’re also flavoured, so you don’t have any of the flavour issues that can come with other collagen types. Yuvãfy comes in delicious blood orange, ginger and raspberry flavour.

Pros of liquid collagen

  • Liquid collagen is convenient and quick to take. It usually comes mixed and measured so it’s good for on the go. This makes it more convenient than powdered options.
  • Liquid collagen is formulated for quick absorption, allowing the body to rapidly assimilate the collagen peptides and start benefiting from a boost quickly. Again, this can mean that it’s a great choice for busy lifestyles.
  • Some liquid collagen supplements are combined with hydrating ingredients, promoting not only collagen support but also skin hydration. Yuvãfy is made with essential amino acids, including glycine, proline and hydroxyproline to support the health and maintenance of your skin, hair, nails, and joints.

Cons of liquid collagen

  • Liquid collagen products may have a shorter shelf life and require proper storage conditions to maintain their efficacy. This means that you need to be motivated to take your collagen consistently, which is also great for getting results.
  • There may not be as many different flavour options as powdered collagen. However, that’s not the case with Yuvãfy. Blood orange, hint of ginger and subtle sweetness of raspberries make our collagen a delicious wellness boost.

Collagen tablets

Collagen tablets are a convenient and straightforward form of collagen supplementation. They’re typically made from hydrolysed collagen to break down the protein into easily digestible peptides.
