Drinkable Collagen? Everything you need to know about the hottest new beauty supplement for men


By Will Stroude

What is all the fuss about Collagen and do I relay need it?

Hell yeah! Collagen is the largest and most abundant protein in our bodies. Here, Maxine Laceby, the founder of Absolute Collagen, describes the function of collagen, the “glue” that holds us together.

It holds all living tissue together and ensures the integrity, elasticity and regeneration of skin, cartilage and bones. Collagen is also found in the hair, nails, joints and intestinal tissue, even our organs are made of collagen.

When collagen becomes weaker and less substantial it begins to sag often showing as crow’s feet or turkey neck, doctors call this Ptosis. This is due to collagen depletion. As we get older we may begin to experience other conditions linked to collagen deficiency, such as leaky gut and arthritis.

When might I need extra collagen?

Collagen production peaks around the age of 20, by the time we get to 40 we will have lost around a third of our collagen, which can cause our skin to wrinkle and sag.

However there is no lower age limit to taking a collagen supplement as it is beneficial for many things including hair and we have many younger #absoluters who are all about prevention.

When and why did you become interested in collagen?

My journey to 50 saw me looking at what I was putting inside my body, I knew it was an inside job. I started making and drinking my own bone broth which quickly had amazing results, my skin was just glowing, my hair became thicker and was shining, my nails were growing and I had an amazing sense of well-being. My friends started asking what I was doing and I soon started making it for them too.

Upon further research I discovered Peptan® marine collagen which is far superior to other forms of collagen, this has undergone a process in order to break it down to such fine molecules that in can penetrate the bloodstream, unlike other collagen supplements that simply get flushed out, Absolute Collagen has a 92% absorption rate.  

I then asked myself what I wanted from a supplement; maximum of the good stuff, with the minimum effort  and I came up with Absolute Collagen’s unique ready mixed 10ml sachets, each contains 8grams of high grade Peptan® marine collagen, no need to refrigerate, can be taken any time of day and are great for travel.
