Nutrition For Healthy Skin
A blend of marine collagen peptides and natural antioxidants clinically proven to improve skin health.
Collagen is our skin's main structural protein and faces daily damage from the sun and
other external factors.
Our body repairs this damage by building fresh collagen, but its rate of collagen production slows down after our mid 20s, ultimately leading to visible signs of skin damage.
The marine collagen peptides in each sachet of Nutrova Collagen+Antioxidants are of a specific size that our digestive system can directly absorb (di- and tri-peptides, average molecular weight 3000 Da). Once absorbed, these peptides are directly used by our body to build new collagen in our skin and repair damage.
Nutrova Collagen+Antioxidants also contains a powerful blend of natural antioxidants from tomatoes, green tea and grapes that protect the skin from the factors that cause daily damage.
Nutrova's first-of-its-kind study was conducted on 34 Indian women, aged 35-45 years, to test the effects of Nutrova Collagen+Antioxidants on Indian skin
Day 30 Results: Improved skin texture, elasticity and firmness. Reduced wrinkle width and dark spots.
Day 60 Results: Further improvements in the results observed after 30 days. Additional changes like improved skin hydration, and reduced dark circles and pore size.
- 97% said their skin felt firmer and had a glowing appearance
- 88% said their dark circles and wrinkles reduced
- 85% said their dark spots reduced
Frequently asked questions
Nutrova Collagen+Antioxidants is optimised for our skin, with antioxidants that work synergistically with marine collagen peptides to improve our skin's health. If your goal is healthier skin, we would strongly recommend Nutrova Collagen+Antioxidants.
Nutrova Collagen Peptides, on the other hand, is ideally suited for those who want to consume a higher dose of collagen peptides to derive their additional benefits, beyond skin health (joint health, gut health, post workout recovery), or those who are allergic to fish and cannot consume marine collagen. It contains pure collagen peptides derived from poultry with no other ingredients, additives or flavours.
Nutrova Collagen+Antioxidants can be consumed by anyone above the age of 25, since the mid-20's and above are when collagen production begins to slow down.
Pregnant or lactating women, those with medical conditions or those on chronic medication should consult with a doctor before consuming the product.
IMPORTANT ALLERGEN INFORMATION:
Those who may have responded negatively to fish or fish products before, should opt instead for Nutrova Collagen Peptides, which is made from poultry collagen peptides rather than marine collagen peptides.
The important thing is to consume it daily, so it’s best to choose any convenient time. Also, having your daily sachet of Nutrova Collagen+Antioxidants before/after a meal helps its nutrients get absorbed. If possible, try having it closer to the end of the day, since its collagen peptides aid our skin’s renewal process, which takes place when we sleep
The clinical study on Nutrova Collagen+Antioxidants carried out in India measured noticeable improvements (in skin firmness, elasticity and texture as well as reductions in wrinkle width and pigmentation) with 30 days of daily consumption. The study showed further improvements (in these parameters as well as improved skin hydration and reduced pore size and dark circle intensity) after 60 days of daily consumption.
For best results, consume Nutrova Collagen+Antioxidants daily for 60 days, to allow the product to help rebuild your skin from within and protect it from external factors. We would recommend using it for a longer duration if your lifestyle or profession tends to promote skin damage (for e.g. working outdoors or under bright lights for long hours). For those without these stressors, we would recommend taking it for 2 to 4 months, and taking a break until you’d like to give your skin another nutritional boost.
Collagen is an animal protein, which means it has no natural vegetarian sources. “Collagen builders/boosters” are marketing terms to promote products that do not contain collagen peptides and therefore, will not give you their proven benefits.
Yes, all our products are designed to work well both individually and together.
None at all. Nutrova Collagen+Antioxidants is made up of high-quality food-based nutrients with evidence-based benefits. It also has just 45 calories per sachet and cannot lead to weight gain. Just make sure to read its ingredient list carefully if you have any food allergies.
Collagen is helpful for people in their mid-20s and above, since that’s when collagen production begins to slow down for both men and women. Nutrova Collagen + Antioxidants have been shown to improve skin health parameters on Indian skin, suggesting that collagen peptides supplements are beneficial for skin health and appearance.
Having said that, pregnant or lactating women, people with medical conditions or those who are on chronic medication should first consult their doctors before taking any supplements, including ours.
It has been scientifically proposed that free radicals may play a role in the development of acne and antioxidant supplements could be a useful addition to acne treatment. Consuming antioxidants for acne is often debated on several platforms, however, the effects of these compounds in the progression of acne needs to be studied more.
I have been using the collagen for the past 4 weeks now and i can see the difference so clearly. My pores have shrunk, the skin has a glow, it's lifted, softer, plumper and looks younger over all. I had acne marks all over and dark patches as well which have disappeared completely. I have been on and off with it but everytime I get regular, i see the difference. My 30 day pack is almost over and I'd like a refill for sure.

What is collagen?
As collagen supplements gain popularity, its worth understanding exactly what collagen is and how collagen supplements can improve our skin health.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body and plays a vital role in holding our cells together. All our body's bones are made of a framework of collagen, all the ligaments and cartilage in our body are almost entirely collagen and collagen is also the main protein in our skin.
Exposure to external factors like the sun’s UV rays, pollution and lifestyle factors such as smoking and a high sugar diet tend to create an excess of free radicals in the body that damage cells, proteins and other molecules in their path, including collagen. As our skin is exposed the most to these factors, the collagen in our skin is very susceptible to this damage.
Our body produces fresh collagen every 30-45 days to repair this damage and replenish its structure. However, its ability to produce collagen slows down with age, with a drastic reduction occurring during our 20’s. This makes it harder for our body to repair damaged collagen. Consequently, our skin structure gets compromised, as well as its ability to continue repairing the damage. That’s what leads to signs of ageing like dullness, fine lines and wrinkles.
How do collagen supplements work?
Collagen peptides are the raw material used to make collagen supplements and powders. Collagen peptides are simply broken-down chains (aka peptides) of collagen. It’s comparable to forming a jigsaw puzzle when the pieces are already interlocked in two’s and three’s; the collagen peptides are much simpler for our skin to incorporate into its structures and start forming new collagen. Collagen peptides work by providing our body the building blocks of collagen, simplifying the process to rebuild and repair damaged collagen.
Studies have shown that more than 90% of collagen peptides from collagen supplements absorbed and found in our body. Collagen supplements have been clinically demonstrated to improve our skin’s parameters, by helping it form new collagen and replenishing its collagen matrix. In fact, Nutrova Collagen+Antioxidants is the only collagen supplement clinically studied on Indian participants and has shown improvements wrinkle width, skin pigmentation, pore volume, skin hydration and even dark circles. Using a collagen supplement for skin is an effective way to improve a number of skin health parameters.
How do you choose the best collagen supplement?
There are a number of collagen supplements available in India and it can be overwhelming to find the best collagen supplement for your skin. Here are a few things to consider while choosing the best collagen supplement for your personal goals.
- Collagen supplements and powders are derived from animal sources. Products claiming to be “vegetarian collagen” are not actually collagen supplements and will not provide the same benefits as a collagen supplement that contains actual collagen peptides.
- Collagen supplements use collagen powder from different sources. For skin health, the source is normally marine collagen, as is the case for Nutrova Collagen+Antioxidants. However, collagen supplements from bovine (cow), porcine (pig) and poultry (chicken) sources are also available. Choose a source that meets your requirements.
- The amount of collagen peptides in your collagen supplement will determine how effective it is. The best collagen supplements for skin health contain 5 grams of collagen peptides. Nutrova Collagen+Antioxidants contains 5.5 grams of marine collagen peptides, which we have found to be the optimal dose for skin health in our clinical research.
Nutrova Collagen+Antioxidants is the first collagen supplement in India that combines an effective dose of collagen peptides with natural antioxidants from tomatoes, green tea and grapes and Vitamins C & E with clinically proven results in a study on Indian participants. If you’re looking for the best collagen supplement in India, a clinical study on Indian participants can help you make an informed decision. This clinical study showed that Nutrova Collagen+Antioxidants reduced fine lines, improved skin hydration and elasticity, helped reduce dark circles, reduced pigmentation and decreased pore size.
