The Benefits of Collagen Drinks

If you can’t remember the last time your skin glowed, or your hair shone, it might be time to top up your natural collagen levels.

We rely on hardworking collagen to keep our skin firm and bones strong, but we’re all guilty of taking it for granted. It’s the most abundant protein in the body and the building block for healthy skin, nails, hair and bones. But levels gradually decline by around 1.5% a year after our mid-twenties, and skin becomes thinner and starts to sag. The rate of collagen decline depends on diet, sun, sleep, genetics and hormones.

Yuvãfy loves educating our clients about the benefits of adding collagen drinks to their daily wellness routine – we treat the cause, not the symptom. Scientifically proven to trigger natural collagen production, they restore collagen levels throughout the body from the inside out.

Why Yuvafy marine collagen drink?

Upping your collagen levels with diet alone is hard; collagen drinks can bridge the gap. When you eat protein, digestive enzymes have to break down the collagen in the food into individual amino acids and peptides. By contrast, the collagen in drinks has already been broken down (hydrolysed) and is more easily absorbed.

But, not all collagen drinks are created equally.

Unlike Yuvãfy, not all brands contain a potent dose of 10,000mg of sustainable, hydrolysed marine type I collagen, scientifically proven to be the most bioavailable to the body. Only then do you get the copycat effect: when the body detects extra collagen in the bloodstream, it is tricked into producing more of its own – crafty!

But if you don’t take them consistently, they won’t work. So our nutritionists have designed handy sachet-sized drinks with a burst of flavour, which are a joy to drink, not a chore. We’ve even added Hyaluronic Acid and all the B and C vitamins your body craves for radiant, plump skin, glossy hair and strong bones.


Smoother, firmer skin.

Your skin is desperate for you to supplement your skincare routine with collagen.

Young skin is full of strong, multitasking collagen holding it in place – like the springs in a mattress: once levels drop, the mattress sags, and our skin falls into lines and folds. Collagen levels are the biggest factor in skin ageing – not skincare. Collagen drinks reach the deeper layers of the skin, whereas collagen creams hydrate the surface only.

The Collagen in Yuvãfy has undergone thirteen rigorous clinical trials, including bioavailability and randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical trials for beauty. They concluded that collagen helped to reduce visible signs of skin ageing, including:

  • Increased skin moisture
  • Increased skin elasticity
  • Reduced UV-induced hyperpigmentation
  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • Strong, healthy nails & hair.

Have you noticed brittle nails or fine, dry hair? Like our skin, our hair and nails reflect our inner health – it sounds like your collagen levels are running low. Collagen is responsible for healthy hair and nail growth, but low levels can weaken the hair follicle, leaving it vulnerable to split ends and breakage; nails can become brittle and weak.

Hair and nail care products only work on the outside, whereas collagen drinks supply amino acids to strengthen and promote new growth from the inside out. This nourishing protein strengthens hair follicles, reduces split ends, and provides structural support for nails – say goodbye to brittle nails ruining your manicure.

Stronger bones

Did you know that our bones are mostly made of collagen? As levels decline, we lose bone mass, and they become weaker. Often, we don’t realise until the damage is done: low bone density leads to a higher risk of fractures, breaks and osteoporosis.

Improved joint health and mobility

Collagen doesn’t just support external beauty. This essential structural protein supports the cartilage structure, the rubber-like connective tissue that protects your joints. As levels decline with age, we are at risk of wear and tear and joint disorders such as osteoarthritis.

Collagen drinks can stimulate your connective tissues to make more collagen, maintaining joint flexibility and mobility, reducing joint pain and stiffness, and easing symptoms of osteoarthritis.

Boosts muscle mass

Collagen is a vital part of skeletal muscle, but over time, levels decline, leaving us vulnerable to loss of muscle mass (sarcopenia). Collagen drinks may help boost muscle mass and stimulate the synthesis of muscle proteins such as creatine, but you have to exercise as well!
