Vitamins and minerals from real food sources, paired with time-tested superfood ingredients.
Clinically Studied Fermented Eggshell Membrane Collagen
Ancient Nutrition is the only leading collagen supplement brand on the market currently with a proprietary fermented eggshell membrane collagen ingredient backed by human clinical studies, proven to provide real results as early as day one.* This fast-acting ingredient provides collagen types I, III, IV, V, VII, VIII, X, XII and XXII and supports joint, gut and skin health.*
Clinically Studied SBO Probiotics
Each serving includes 2 billion CFU** of an SBO probiotic strain called Bacillus coagulans. SBO, or soil-based organism, probiotics are a particularly resilient and effective strain. Unlike probiotics that need to be refrigerated to survive, SBO probiotics actually thrive in harsh environments (like the gut). We’ve included it to provide added support for a healthy gut, digestive function, healthy bowel transit time and healthy gut flora.*
Traditional Superfoods for Gut Support
This formula brings together some of history’s most-used superfood ingredients known to help calm the gut. Organic apple cider vinegar, organic ginger root, organic peppermint leaf and licorice root extract are long-respected natural options to help the good bacteria in your system thrive.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, especially type I collagen. It’s found in muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, tendons and the digestive system.
Collagen contains a whopping 18 different amino acids. Amino acids are the “building blocks of proteins,” and collagen includes a mix of both nonessential (also called conditional) and essential types.
When should I use this product?
You can use this collagen powder in the morning, afternoon, evening or right before bed. There is no specific time to take collagen, but you’ll maximize benefits by taking it consistently. Find a time that works best for you to take it regularly.
Why does your packaging now say 5 types of collagen instead of 10 types of collagen?
Multi Collagen Protein is made with groundbreaking ingredients, including our clinically-studied fermented eggshell membrane collagen. That’s a newer ingredient in Multi Collagen Protein, backed by human clinical studies, and it’s shown to deliver fast results that truly last.
Because it’s a newer ingredient in our formula, there are studies and research released about it frequently. Recently, an analysis found even more collagen types in the eggshell membrane than we originally believed.
In addition to the types I, II, III, V and X, Multi Collagen Protein also has types IV, VII, VIII, XII, XXII. Together, those collagen types build and support your joints, tendons, ligaments, skin, bones, muscles, hair, nails, and gut.* They play a vital role in providing structural support to your whole body.
We have a team of experts who ensure that the research backs up our products and their benefits. So we’ll only communicate something if there is clear, definitive science showing it to be true. That’s why we’ve recently updated our Multi Collagen Protein to communicate ten types of collagen.
Who is this product intended for?
The body’s collagen production typically starts to slow down after the age of 30. This product is for anyone looking to naturally support their body as they age, especially if you’re looking for clinically studied, multi-faceted joint, fitness and healthy skin support rolled up in one place.
Why should I be supplementing with collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. Up to 30% of all the protein in your body is collagen protein. Up to 70% of skin, hair, nails and nearly 100% of connective tissues are made from collagen. It literally holds you together, from the hairs on your head, to every inch of your skin, to your joint comfort and mobility. It even supports the integrity of your gut lining; collagen promotes normal tissue growth and cellular health, all of which can impact the overall health of your gut.
Collagen production naturally declines as we age… and it’s not being consumed in the standard modern diet. Supplementing can help support your body’s natural production, so you can reap all the rewards of collagen.
Are there other factors that contribute to collagen loss?
The natural aging process is not the only thing that can slow down production and diminish collagen in your body. If you’re worried about the breakdown of your own collagen, here are 8 lifestyle factors that are considered “collagen diminishers.”
Poor sleep Excess sugar consumption Sun overexposure Diet low in antioxidants Sitting all day and lack of activity Nutrient shortfalls of vitamin C and zinc Free radicals
You can fight back against collagen loss through a few combined approaches: Limit your exposure to damaging UV rays and other environmental toxins Consume collagen-boosting foods Support and promote the skin’s health by supplementing with collagen
How can I tell if it works?
Some common ways to tell if the collagen is working is by noticing healthy skin, healthy nails, and joint comfort support.
How long before I can start looking for benefits?
Clinical studies have demonstrated noticeable results in as little as 24 hours.* However, everyone is different, and will have a different experience when using the product. What matters most is consistency. With consistent use, you can see even more results over the first several days and weeks. Here are some of the changes you may notice: Reduced exercise-induced joint discomfort as early as Day 1* Reduced collagen degradation with noticeable results in as little as 3 days* Reduced knee stiffness, discomfort and improved function at 30 days* Improved appearance of crow’s feet after 4 weeks and skin tone after 8 weeks*
How did you pack all of those benefits into 3 small capsules?
The fermented collagen peptides found in our Multi Collagen Capsules offer up a greater impact (by weight) than typical hydrolyzed collagen peptides. How is this significantly greater impact possible? The fermentation process and its microorganisms unlock the collagen code, resulting in a higher percentage of dipeptides (2 amino acids linked together) and tripeptides (3 amino acids linked together) vs. those of long chain or irregular length. Short chain peptides are bioactive and extremely beneficial and act like a key to unlock the body’s collagen code. In other words, this fermentation of collagen results in smaller peptides that are “pre-digested” by the microorganisms, making them more absorbable and retaining their beneficial identity instead of being larger and harder-to-digest peptides altered by heat or chemical processing.
Is Multi Collagen Protein vegan/vegetarian?
Collagen is found only in animals, mostly in the flesh and connective tissue. There are no vegan collagen supplements (although there are vegan foods and products that can support your body’s production of collagen). As a result, Collagen Peptides come from animal sources, so it is not vegan or vegetarian.
What are the differences between Multi Collagen Capsules and Multi Collagen Protein Powder?
Brought to you in an easy-to-use capsule form, Multi Collagen Capsules are an effortless way to tap into the benefits of collagen. This is the perfect option if you’re on-the-go, or simply aren’t a fan of using powdered supplements. Both the capsule and powder Multi Collagen formulas feature 10 types of collagen from 4 whole food sources: fermented eggshell membrane, beef, chicken and fish. Both formulas include our cutting-edge, clinically studied, exclusive fermented eggshell membrane ingredient. Multi Collagen Protein also includes 2 billion CFU** Bacillus coagulans, a resilient strain of soil-based organism probiotics, and 100% DV of clinically studied Vitamin C. It also provides 9g of protein per scoop. Multi Collagen Capsules, on the other hand, include an Organic Fermented Botanical Blend (Organic Fermented Ginger Root, Organic Fermented Turmeric Root, Organic Fermented Ashwagandha Root, Organic Fermented Amla (Phyllanthus emblica) Berry, Organic Holy Basil Leaf). Whichever format you choose, you can feel confident that Multi Collagen Capsules and Multi Collagen Protein both deliver incredible results from high-quality, innovative ingredients.
