For radiant skin and supple joints
Vegetarian collagen combined with hyaluronic acid, bromelain, silicon, selenium, biotin and vitamin C to make your skin "glow".
Why is collagen so important?
Collagen helps keep your skin, bones and muscles firm and helps the skin, joints, tendons, ligaments and cartilage stay hydrated and elastic.
Starting from the age of 20, collagen levels decline by about 1% each year. During perimenopause, the skin loses an average of about 30% of its collagen. By the time we are 80 years old, our skin contains only a quarter of the collagen we need.
Without the structure and elasticity that collagen provides, our skin becomes saggy, thin and less plump. Our oestrogen levels decrease during menopause, which also contributes to ageing skin.
Innovative collagen from egg shell membrane
The patented raw material Ovomet® has a positive effect on the skin and joints. It provides the ideal collagen concentration of just 300mg. It’s also vegetarian and sustainable!
It consists of Type 1 collagen, which is important for our skin, bones, ligaments and tendons, as well as Type V and X. In addition to collagen, it contains naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, elastin, glucosamine, chondroitin sulphate and more than 400 other proteins such as keratin.
Extra "glow" thanks to hyaluronic acid & co.
In addition to the highly concentrated collagen from Ovomet®, Collagen Kick also contains vegan hyaluronic acid, the enzyme bromelain, silicon and selenium. Biotin and vitamin C strengthen the skin's natural barrier and promote collagen production.
Effective active formula made from collagen, hyaluronic acid, bromelain, silicon, selenium, biotin and vitamin C.
There are many benefits of Ovomet® collagen. The eggshell membrane is mainly made up of type 1 collagen as well as types V and X, along with elastin, hyaluronic acid, glucosamine, chondroitin sulphate and over 400 proteins, including keratin.
Hyaluronic acid supports and fills connective tissue and regulates moisture content. In addition to the hyaluronic acid in the eggshell membranes, we also use vegan hyaluronic acid derived from the natural fermentation of glucose.
Bromelain from pineapple contains a special protein-digesting and splitting enzyme that supports our body in a variety of ways.
Silicon from bamboo sprouts
Silicon is a natural building block of connective tissue, bones, cartilage, hair and nails. Our silicon is sourced from bamboo sprouts.
Beauty vital complex
Biotin, selenium and vitamin C
Biotin and selenium are important for healthy skin, hair and nails, giving them a radiant glow.² Our thyroid glands also love selenium!³ Supplemented with natural vitamin C from the camu camu fruit, these ingredients combine to stimulate collagen production in our skin and joints.¹
Frequently asked questions
Does taking collagen orally even work?
Collagen proteins are absorbed by the body in the small intestine. From there, they are distributed throughout the body and can be stored for up to two weeks. The body decides where these collagen proteins go - whether that is in the skin, joints, connective tissue, or elsewhere - depending on where it needs collagen most and which type of collagen is being used.
Why do I only need such a small amount of Collagen Kick?
The patented natural-origin collagen active ingredient ("native") from Ovomet® is effective for skin and joints in the recommended dosage of just 300mg.
The process of separating the membrane from the eggshell is also patented, and Ovomet® retains the advantageous natural composition of the eggshell membrane. We think it's quite impressive, as it contains not only type I, V and X collagen, but also hyaluronic acid, elastin, glucosamine, chondroitin sulphate and several other proteins.
Collagen supplements from beef, pork or fish usually contain between 2,5 and 10g of hydrolyzed collagen. Ovomet®’s, on the other hand, produces a highly concentrated collagen product with the ideal amount of collagen of 300mg. Even better - the environmental impact of the production process is very low as only water and mechanical forces are used during production.
Where is collagen found in nature?
In nature, collagen is always derived from animals.
- Beef or pork (type I collagen)
- Fish (marine collagen, type I)
- Chicken cartilage (type II collagen)
-Membrane of chicken eggshells (type I collagen) = vegetarian collagen.
Why do you say that your collagen is vegetarian if it is derived from chicken eggs?
Vegetarians eat products from living animals in addition to plant-based foods. Vegetarians do not eat beef, pork, chicken or fish, as they are killed for consumption. However, vegetarians do eat animal-derived foods such as dairy products, eggs and honey. Since our collagen is produced from eggshell membranes, it is vegetarian as the hens who lay the eggs are not killed for their eggs.
However, our collagen is not vegan because vegans only eat plant-based foods and do not consume any animal products (including eggs).
Does vegan collagen exist?
Plants do not produce collagen. So, no, naturally occurring vegan collagen exists. There are, however, plant compounds that promote collagen production, such as amino acids, ceramides, minerals (like copper) and antioxidants like vitamin C.
Most vegan collagen products only contain amino acids that make up the structure, or building blocks, of collagen. The likelihood of these forming a collagen molecule is low. Research is still ongoing for synthetic vegan collagens that are produced through the fermentation of yeasts and bacteria. However, the effectiveness of microbial collagen has not yet been confirmed in any reliable studies to date.
Can I take Collagen Kick together with XbyX Daily Energy?
Absolutely! And the good news is that this combination is particularly effective. XbyX Energy contains vital nutrients that help the body to produce collagen. These nutrients include the amino acids L-proline, L-lysine, L-methionine, and L-arginine. The body needs these amino acids to use selenium and L-arginine serves as a precursor to the formation of the collagen peptide hydroxyproline. You might also want to try adding our XbyX All Things Omega to Collagen Kick for the health benefit from the omega-3 fats EPA and DHA it contains.
Should I take different types of collagen for my skin and my joints?
Your body knows where the greatest collagen deficiency is in your body and sends it where it’s needed most. You might take collagen to soften your wrinkles or to make your joints more supple. But ultimately when you take collagen, your body uses it for whatever it needs.
¹ Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin, bones, cartilage, and blood vessels. Vitamin C also contributes to protecting cells from oxidative stress.
² Biotin and selenium contribute to the maintenance of normal skin and hair.
³ Selenium contributes to the normal thyroid function.
I've tried several other products, but this product is my favourite. All in all, I feel good. I'll definitely continue to use it.
I was sceptical, but I can only agree with the other reviews. You can actually feel and see the effect relatively quickly. My nails are smooth and strong again, my skin has improved and even my hair seems fuller. It's great for boosting self-confidence, too.
For a long time, I had severe joint problems. After just 3 days of taking Collagen Kick, I could see improvements. Now, after almost 1 month, my problems are almost all gone. I'll definitely continue to use Collagen Kick and can only recommend it.
No more joint pain, no more dry skin, my fingernails are no longer brittle. Great products!
I'm so happy with Collagen Kick. The texture of my skin is wonderfully soft and delicate, fine lines have been smoothed, joint pain is history. I can only recommend it to everyone. I'm totally happy. Thank you so much 😊
