Gluten Free Collagen Supplements
Is Collagen Gluten Free?
Collagen is the most abundant structural protein in your body, forming connective tissue and acting as part of the building blocks for your bones, skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Despite making up more than one third of the protein composition in your body, you begin to lose collagen as you age as your body produces less and you are exposed to collagen-decreasing factors such as sunlight, smoking, lack of sleep, and infrequent exercise. To give your body a boost, collagen supplements available at CVS can help to deliver the protein via capsules, powders, liquids, and gummies. To accommodate for gluten sensitivities many of the collagen supplements are gluten free and can be found both in-store and online through CVS.
Gluten Free Collagen Powder
Because collagen is found in animal flesh that contains connective tissue, such as high protein food sources like beef, pork, eggs, and shellfish, it does not naturally contain gluten. If you are following a strict vegan diet or need to accommodate an allergy or food sensitivity you can find your ideal gluten free collagen powder at CVS while still adhering to your eating parameters.
