Organika’s Plant-Based Collagen Booster contains 7 synergistic ingredients to naturally boost collagen production, as well as to protect collagen from UV and free radical damage. It is also the first collagen booster to use ginseng and carrot peptides, which mimic the role of the traditional collagen peptides and are scientifically proven to boost type 1 collagen production.
Seven plant-based ingredients working in synergy for naturally radiant skin! Naturally boost your collagen production, and prevent collagen breakdown from UV and free radical damage.
A super ingredient that acts similarly to animal collagen peptides. Preliminary research shows that ginseng peptide boosts the production of type 1 collagen, which is great for hair, skin, and nails!
A super ingredient that acts similarly to animal collagen peptides and is rich in flavonoids.
Dragon Fruit Extracts:
Natural source of flavonoids, antioxidants.
Moringa Leaf Extract:
A powerful natural antioxidant.
Golden Bamboo Extract:
A natural source of silica, a key component for collagen production. High in dietary fibre, which can help with absorbing nutrients and detoxing.
A potent antioxidant (6,000 times stronger than vitamin C!) with anti-inflammatory effects. It also inhibits collagenase, an enzyme in our body that breaks down collagen.
Vitamin C from Acerola:
Vitamin C plays a key role in the enzymatic process that boosts collagen production in our body.

Q: Why ginseng and carrot peptides?
A: Ginseng and carrot peptides were selected by our development team due to their amino acid composition, which is similar to that of animal collagen. Take a peek at the Ingredients tab for a complete list of amino acids provided by those ingredients!
Q: What is the difference between Plant-based Collagen Booster and animal-sourced collagen powders?
A: Animal-sourced collagen supplements contain collagen peptides, whereas Plant-based Collagen Booster contains no collagen, but the vital nutrients required to kick up your body’s own natural production of collagen and reduce collagen damage caused by lifestyle or environmental factors.
Q: Can I take Plant-based Collagen Booster and Enhanced Collagen/Marine Collagen at the same time?
A: Yes, you can definitely take Plant-based Collagen Booster and any of our hydrolyzed collagen powders at the same time! When consuming collagen peptides, your body absorbs them and can put them to use directly; however, you will still need to utilize the nutrients contained in the Plant-based Collagen Booster to turn them into collagen.
Q: Can I drink the plant-based collagen in coffee?
A: No, unlike hydrolyzed collagen, which can be mixed with hot and cold beverages/foods, Plant-Based Collagen Booster will lose its health benefits if mixed with a hot beverage or used for baking. We recommend mixing the plant-based collagen with lemonade, iced tea, or any other drinks or recipes that would taste great with an added lemon flavour.
Q: How often should I use Plant-Based Collagen Booster?
A: We recommend incorporating it into your daily routine, however, it is important to listen to your body. Start out slow and increase your “dosage” as you feel comfortable doing so.
Q: Will taking the plant-based collagen affect blood sugar levels?
Q: What is your source of Astaxanthin?
A: Dark red pigment sourced from algae (Haematococcus pluvialis).
