Scientifically backed Benefits of Collagen for Hair Health

What is collagen? 

Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body and helps make up tendons, ligaments, joints, fascia and your skin which includes the skin lining of your organs like the lining of your gut.  

Your body produces collagen, but you can also get it from supplements and foods, such as bone broth. Starting in your twenties, we make less and less collagen as we age depleting our youthful collagen levels.  If you have sagging skin, thinning hair or painful joints, most likely you are depleted of collagen.

Collagen may offer a variety of health benefits, such as promoting healthy, strong hair.

Here are Scientifically backed Benefits of Collagen for Hair Health

Boosting Hair Strength with Amino Acids Derived from Collagen Protein

Hair is primarily made up of the protein keratin. Collagen is rich in amino acids that your body needs to build keratin.

Your body uses several amino acids to build keratin — some of which can be found in collagen (12).

When you consume collagen and other proteins, your body breaks them down into amino acids that are then used to build new proteins and compounds (3).

There are 11 nonessential amino acids that your body can make and 9 essential ones that you need to obtain from your diet. Collagen has 8 of the 9 essential amino acids and is primarily made up of 3 nonessential amino acids: proline, glycine, and hydroxyproline (4).

Proline is also the main component of keratin. Therefore, consuming proline-rich collagen should provide your body with the building blocks it needs to create hair (5).

How Collagen May Help Prevent Age-Related Hair Loss

Collagen makes up 70% of your dermis, the middle layer of your skin that contains the root of each individual hair follicle.

In particular, collagen contributes to the elasticity and strength of your dermis. With age, your body becomes less efficient at producing collagen and replenishing cells in the dermis. Reduced synthesis of collagen types I and III is characteristic of chronologically aged skin. This may be one of the reasons why hair gets thinner over time (6).

Over 90% of the total collagen in the human body consists of types I & III, which are the main components of Yonder® hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides. Unlike other brands that dilute their collagen with various types, we provide the full potency of Type I & III.

Therefore, providing your body with type I & III collagen may help maintain a healthy dermis and prevent hair thinning.

One eight-week study in 69 women aged 35–55 found that taking daily collagen supplements significantly improved skin elasticity compared to a placebo (7).

Since hair grows out of your skin, the potential of collagen to counteract the effects of skin aging may contribute to better hair growth and decreased


Easy to Add to Your Daily Routine – Safely Incorporating Collagen into Your Daily Routine without Toxin Overload

You can add collagen to your diet through foods and/or supplements.

Since it makes up the connective tissue of mammals, it’s found in the skins, bones, and muscles of chicken, beef, pork, and fish. To prevent toxic overload you want to make sure your added daily collagen is not loaded with toxics such as heavy metals and glyphosate/pesticides.  Clean animal sources are important.

Broth made from animal bones contains both collagen and gelatin, a cooked form of collagen. This homemade bone broth recipe can be sipped as a drink or used as the base for soups. Sourcing clean animal bones to use in your homemade recipe is important.

Sourcing collagen for purity is the most important foundational element to provide clean effective collagen.  At Yonder, we only source from 100% pasture raised healthy cows that are grass-fed and finished bovine collagen, free from toxins. With all of our products we can assure you that we pass the stringent Prop 65 Regulations, which are specifically tougher on Heavy Metals (such as Lead), Glyphosate and other pesticides. (We come in less than half on the tolerable limits permitted by Prop65 and cGMP from the FDA). The raw material and packaging components used for our products meet FDA GMP requirements. All of our finished products are manufactured in a controlled environment, are tested extensively to meet specifications & are safe for consumption. We know that those banned substances never enter our building as raw material, and never make into finished product. Our products are made within a certified Organic, cGMP, NSF* & UL Certified facility.

So use our Collagen with confidence! 

Obtaining clean chicken, marine, and eggshell in bulk for collagen production is challenging, and this contributes to a higher toxic load in products derived from these sources. Additionally, these varieties introduce different types of collagen, which diminish the concentration of types I & III, the collagen types that constitute 90% of the collagen in our bodies. Bovine collagen, on the other hand, is purely composed of types I & III. When derived from 100% grass-fed and finished cows that are raised exclusively on pasture without any exposure to glyphosate, and in a healthy soil environment, the collagen source is of superior quality. Yonder Collagen meets these standards.

Whole Food Vitamin C Optimizes Collagen

In addition, eating whole foods high in vitamin C may boost your body’s natural collagen production. Oranges, bell peppers, limes, Brussels sprouts, and strawberries are excellent sources of this vitamin (8). Adding whole food vitamin C to your diet is the best way to optimize collagen building.  Having vitamin C bioavailable in your body helps with collagen production. And you want vitamin C that is bioavailable from whole foods which is loaded with numerous nutrients and phytochemicals.  Although synthetic and food-derived vitamin C is chemically identical, fruit and vegetables are rich in numerous nutrients and phytochemicals which may influence its bioavailability. (9)

Vitamin C does not have to be consumed at the same time you take your collagen. You do not want synthetic ascorbic acid vitamin C which is minimally to zero effective (9), in addition you do not want collagen formulas with vitamin C in the formula. Vitamin C can also act as a strong pro-oxidant (10, 11) and when combined in a container sitting on shelf for long periods of time with collagen amino acid peptides for example, it may damage the bioavailability of the amino acids in collagen. 

The most bioavailable collagen is hydrolyzed (broken down to peptides), meaning they’re already broken down and easier to absorb (12). Our advanced enzymatic hydrolysis process creates a 97% pure blend of 19 amino acids in the form of peptides, optimizing the bioavailability and absorption of our collagen supplement.
