Best Collagen Powders for Hair, Skin, and More
At Natural Force, we believe that collagen protein supplementation can be one of the best ways to support joint health, lean muscle, thicker hair, stronger nails, and brighter skin because collagen protein is a missing link in many modern diets.
Grass-fed and Wild Caught Collagens
Our Collagen Peptides start with collagen-rich grass-fed cattle hides – a resource that would otherwise be discarded – we then turn them into an odorless, tasteless protein powder that you can add to just about anything.
Our Marine Collagen is an incredibly pure source of collagen, responsibly sourced from the scales of wild-caught Alaskan cod.
Our Bone Broth protein utilizes the bones and meat of organic, grass-fed cattle, slowly simmered for hours to extract essential nutrients. We then dry the bone broth into a convenient bone broth powder that provides all the benefits of liquid broth in an easy to use form.
Benefits of Collagen
Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the human body and is especially concentrated in the skin, muscles, joints, and connective tissues. Supplementing your diet with collagen protein can help support:
- Strong hair and nails
- Firm, smooth skin
- Exercise recovery
- Gut health
Why Hydrolyzed Collagen
When collagen is first extracted from source materials, it is in the form of gelatin. Gelatin is great for specific cooking applications (like making Jello-style desserts and gummies), but it also has its drawbacks. This is why we hydrolyze (i.e. break down into smaller protein fragments) all of our collagen proteins. Hydrolyzation allows our collagen proteins to:
- Mix and dissolve easily – Unlike gelatin which requires hot liquids to dissolve, hydrolyzed collagen can be easily mixed into room temperature and even cold beverages.
- Stay liquid and not gel – Unless you like eating your coffee with a spoon, hydrolyzed collagen is the way to go for everyday drinks!
- Digest better and absorb more efficiently – Smaller protein fragments mean better digestion and absorption which gives your body more of the collagen building blocks it needs to thrive!

Choosing the Best Collagen Supplement
Natural Force Collagen Peptides are a great place to start, they feature both types I and III collagen, and can be used in beverages as well as cooking! For beauty and anti-aging collagen, we recommend our Marine Collagen Peptides which are a pure type I collagen that has been clinically proven to improve skin moisture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. For those who want the benefits of both a complete protein as well as collagen protein, we suggest trying our Organic Bone Broth Protein which features types I, II, and III collagen as well as all nine essential amino acids.
