I am a 53 years old female and already take your omega 3 and multi vitamins. I have been diagnosed with arthritis and would like to know if I can also take vollagen and bone care to help my joints etc. Thank you Hi, we get very good feedback about our Bone Care supplement and hope you will consider trying it. It is fine to take Vollagen too, and that is a very good combination. However, our recommendation is to firstly try Bone Care for 30 days and see how things progress.
Please can you tell me whether Vollagen contains actual vegan collagen (fermented from Pichia Pastoris) or is it a collagen-booster type product which provides amino acid supplementation to boost natural production of collagen? Hi, Vollagen is Amino Acids in the same proportions as those that make-up Collagen. When Collagen (marine or bovine) is consumed, it is in hydrolysed form. Hydrolysis results in freeing the Amino Acids. Vollagen achieves the same thing but from non-animal sources and without the need of hydrolysis. Native Collagen cannot be absorbed.
Hi When i take hydrolized beef collagene the dose is 10g. How is it possible to get a result similar with only 500mg Vogallen? Thank you Hi, the recommend dosage of Vollagen is 1000mg per day. If you visit, you can access details of the efficacy study performed. It is fine and beneficial to take higher doses, but it was deliberately tested at a low dose too in order to really put it through its paces!

What scientific and practical evidence is available that vollegen does what it says and is claimed to do ? Is it as good as or better than marine collagen? Hi, details the efficacy testing performed with the results, and details the science behind Vollagen. The Amino Acid composition is identical to hydrolysed marine collagen, it is just achieved without hydrolysis or animal source ingredients.

Which vegetables are the amino acids in your Vollagen are derived? Hi, the Amino Acids are produced using fermentation with non-GMO Corn as the substrate.

Hi there, Vollagen has hydroxyproline as part of their amino acid complex but it’s not listed in your Vollagen supplement ingredients. Why is that so? Hi, the European version of Vollagen (for regulatory compliance) doesn't contain the Hydroxylated Amino Acids. Instead it contains elevated levels of Proline and Lysine. The body produces its own Hydroxyproline and Hydroxylysine using Proline and Lysine respectively.
Does Vollagen contain any soy? Hi, no we don't use Soy or Soy derivatives in Vollagen.
Could you tell me what the amino acids are derived from? Is it fermented corn or a mixture of vegetables? Hi, non-GMO Corn is the primary substrate used. Other vegetal sources can be used, and we're always trying different options to obtain the best yields.

We focus on sustainability, quality and purity at all times.

I take BCAA, creatine and L-Glutamine currently-could this be taken in addition to the above or instead of? Thanks Hi, it would be fine to take Vollagen together with BCAAs, creatine and L-Glutamine. These compounds behave differently, so Vollagen can't really be used instead.

Hi! Just curious, as I struggle a lot with taking capsules whole. Would one be able to break them and take the powder with food/ water? What's the most advisable way to take these capsules? Regards, Zakkiyah Hi, the capsules are not too big, so we expect you will find them ok to take. It is fine from an efficacy perspective to open the capsule and take the powder directly, however the taste is quite 'sharp'.
Hi , can I take Multi Vitamins + Omega 3 + Vitamin c + vitamin D together with Vollagen. I only take one tablet of each everyday. Hi, yes that combination is fine to take. You might find the Vitamin D3 coming from MultiVit + Omega-3 is enough to not require additional VitD3 every day (perhaps just 1-2 times per week if you are deficient and seeking a top up).
I’m interested in the Vollagen product and am glad to see it doesn’t have lots of unnecessary ingredients like some of the powders sold elsewhere. I tried to find the research quoted on your site but it only links to a summary, not a published paper. Please could you show me the research itself? Also, how does it compare to rival products in terms of absorption? Thanks. Hi, there isn't a published paper at this time but we understand something is planned soon. The testing was performed by an independent accredited testing organisation. Absorption-wise, Vollagen provides the Amino Acids in the free forms, so it can be readily absorbed by the body.

Hi, I'm allergic to Nickel and would like to know your supplements are Nickel free. In particular Vollagen and Bone Care. But would be happy to know about all the rest. Many thanks! Hi, we use very high purity ingredients and do test for trace elements including Nickel. Trace levels are very low (if at all) but we advise consulting your Doctor before taking any supplements, as they can impact general nickel absorption. We hope your Doctor will advocate our formulas, but it best for them to check as they can consider your individual medical history.

Hi. Multi vit + omega 3 + Vollagen? Is that too much? I'm vegan, 27. Hi, MultiVit + Omega-3 is an ideal daily regime. If you're seeking to add a Collagen alternative, Vollagen is the perfect addition. Vollagen can be combined with any of our other supplements.

Hi At the moment I take multi vit and bone care alternative days with vit c and biotin . Biotin corse will finish shortly . I would like to start taking B12 and D3 (2500) D3 I will just take the 60 days . When Vollagen arrives I will definitely take this to replace the biotin . Should I alternate any of the supplements besides multi vit and bone care ? I’m vegan 60 this year and active . Natalie Davis Hi, it sounds like you have a very good regime. Vollagen is fine to fit in, and won't interfere with the other products. Our recommendation is to consider MultiVit + Vollagen (alternating MultiVit for Bone Care every other day if desired). You can top this up with B12 and/or D3 as required.
