VERISOL® Collagen: Benefits and Uses

VERISOL®, a trademarked collagen from Gelita, is a unique collagen that specifically benefits hair, skin and nails, unlocking beauty from within.


Understanding Collagen and Its Role

Collagen is a protein that provides structure and support to different tissues in the body. Skin, tendons, ligaments, and bones all contain large amounts of collagen, which serves as a molecular glue, ensuring the integrity and cohesion of these vital structures. 1 


Collagen comes in various types, each tailored to perform specific roles. Type I collagen, found in the skin, tendons, and bones, offers tensile strength. Type II collagen, present in cartilage, provides cushioning and flexibility. Type III collagen, often in reticular fibers, contributes to the structure of organs like the liver and spleen.2 


Beyond structural support, collagen significantly influences the appearance of skin, hair, and nails. In the skin, collagen provides resilience and elasticity, contributing to a youthful complexion. Hair follicles rely on collagen to maintain strength and vitality, while nails require it for growth and hardness.3


What is VERISOL® Collagen?

VERISOL®, a trademarked product of Gelita, is a patented collagen peptide made from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine. It undergoes a specialized hydrolysis process to yield bioactive collagen peptides. The bioactive collagen peptides stimulate fibroblasts in your dermal layer to make collagen. By doing so, you make more dermal collagen, and you can fight what gets lost as you age. 4,5


VERISOL® Collagen sets itself apart with its targeted approach, containing both Types I and III of collagen. Unlike other collagen peptides that have an ideal dose of 20g per serving, VERISOL® collagen works at a concentrated dose of 2.5g per serving.6


Incorporating VERISOL® Collagen into your wellness regimen offers a unique opportunity to enhance your natural beauty from the inside out. With its bioactive collagen peptides and carefully studied dosage, VERISOL® provides a science-backed solution for achieving radiant skin, lustrous hair, and strong nails.


Scientific Research and Evidence

VERISOL® Collagen's efficacy is firmly grounded in scientific research. 

Numerous studies have showcased VERISOL®'s positive effects on skin health. Research has demonstrated its ability to significantly enhance skin elasticity and hydration. Notably, studies have shown a reduction in wrinkle depth, contributing to a smoother and more youthful appearance.7,8


Beyond skin benefits, VERISOL® has also demonstrated its prowess in promoting nail and hair health. Clinical trials have revealed improvements in nail growth and the reduction of brittle nails. Additionally, VERISOL® has been associated with enhanced hair quality, including increased hair thickness and strength. 9,10


How VERISOL® Collagen Works

Through hydrolysis, VERISOL®'s collagen peptides break down into smaller fragments, allowing them to be absorbed by the digestive system better. During digestion, these peptides are then absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed throughout the body. One of the most remarkable mechanisms of VERISOL® collagen is that it stimulates collagen synthesis from within. As a result, they not only provide collagen building blocks, but also stimulate the body to make it.11


Choosing a Quality Supplement with Collagen for Beauty Benefits

Choosing the right collagen supplement is crucial if you're hoping to enhance your beauty from within. Several factors need to be considered to ensure that your decision aligns with your goals.


The quality of a collagen supplement hinges on its purity, sourcing, and manufacturing practices. Opt for supplements that prioritize clean, sustainable sourcing of collagen from reputable sources. Rigorous manufacturing processes guarantee the preservation of bioactivity and the absence of contaminants, ensuring that you receive a potent and safe product.


VERISOL® stands out as an exemplary choice that checks all the boxes. Its commitment to quality sourcing and meticulous manufacturing practices ensures the delivery of bioactive collagen peptides with proven efficacy. 


Combining VERISOL® with other supplements to help overall skin, hair and nail health


Pairing VERISOL® collagen with other key nutrients can amplify its benefits for skin, hair, and nails. Below are 5 key nutrients to pair with VERISOL® collagen. For more information about key beauty nutrients check out Hair, Skin & Nails Vitamins: Secrets to Radiant Beauty from Within


  1. Vitamin C: Vitamin C isn't just your go-to for immune support; it also plays a pivotal role in collagen synthesis. This essential nutrient supports the body's production of collagen, a protein crucial for maintaining skin's strength and elasticity. Moreover, Vitamin C acts as a potent antioxidant, safeguarding collagen fibers from damage caused by free radicals. When combined with VERISOL®, the dynamic duo of Vitamin C and bioactive collagen peptides fortifies your skin's structure, promoting resilience and a youthful complexion.12
  2. Biotin: Biotin, often dubbed the "beauty vitamin," is a key player in promoting hair and nail health. It's a building block for keratin, a protein that constitutes hair and nails. When you pair VERISOL® with biotin, you create a synergy that nurtures both the inner and outer aspects of your beauty. VERISOL® bolsters collagen production for skin's vibrancy, while biotin provides the foundation for strong, lustrous hair and nails. Together, they contribute to an all-encompassing sense of radiant vitality. 13
  3. Silica: Silica, often overlooked, holds immense significance for hair, skin, and nails. This mineral supports the development of collagen and contributes to the overall strength and resilience of these structures. VERISOL® and silica form a dynamic partnership, enhancing each other's effects. While VERISOL® promotes collagen production, silica provides the underlying support for robust and enduring hair, skin, and nails. Together, they create a harmonious balance that exudes radiance. 14, 15
  4. Hyaluronic Acid: Hyaluronic acid is renowned for its prowess in maintaining skin hydration and elasticity. As a key component of the skin's extracellular matrix, it ensures plumpness and suppleness. By combining VERISOL® with hyaluronic acid, you amplify the benefits for your skin. While VERISOL® supports collagen synthesis and structure, hyaluronic acid ensures that your skin remains hydrated and maintains its youthful elasticity. This powerful duo promises a complexion that's both resilient and radiant. 16
  5. Multivitamins and Minerals: A balanced intake of multivitamins and minerals is the cornerstone of overall health. While VERISOL® takes care of your collagen needs, a comprehensive array of nutrients ensures your body's well-being from within. These essentials support various bodily functions, including metabolism, immunity, and energy production. Integrating VERISOL® with multivitamins and minerals isn't just about beauty; it's about nurturing your holistic vitality. Together, they empower you to embrace a life marked by well-being and radiance.17
