OPTIMISED FOR TARGETED RESULTS
HYDROLYSED MARINE BIOACTIVE COLLAGEN PEPTIDES
Our collagen is a premium patented marine peptide sustainably sourced from Thailand. Then hydrolysed and purified in Germany. This leads to a greater concentration of the key amino acids resulting in greater absorption and efficacy which we term bioactive.
Large proteins are unlikely to retain their complex structure in the acidic environment of the stomach. We hydrolyse our collagen into peptides, resulting in smaller proteins with the precise molecular weight of 2kDa. This significantly maximises absorption. Clinical tests show our collagen is gram for gram, twice as effective as generic collagen used by most brands. Therefore the 5g of collagen in LOTUS is equivalent to over 10g of generic collagen found in most collagen drinks and powders.
Reduced Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Better Hydrated, Firmer Skin
Healthy & Luxuriant Hair
Stronger Nails & Faster Growth
COLLAGEN + VITAMIN C
Collagen production by our bodies requires the presence of sufficient amounts of VitaminC. This is because Vitamin C provides the molecule, hydroxyproline, an essential molecule for stabilising the collagen molecule.
