Inspired Vegan Collagyn for Mind + Mood
The ultimate addition to your plant-based diet, Ancient and Brave have formulated one of the most innovative, effective vegan collagen supplements that we have had the pleasure of trying.
Ancient and Brave Inspired collagen is designed for stressed-out bodies in need of a helping hand. The blend includes warming Ayurvedic spices such as turmeric, ginger and cardamom to help balance as well as our favourite adaptogen ashwagandha for resilience.
Ancient and Brave have ensured that opting for a plant-based lifestyle doesn’t mean missing out on those essential nutrients, by including choline, iodine and vitamin D. All of which can be a little tricky to incorporate on a vegan diet yet are so important for cognition and mood, as well as optimal health and wellness.
Chicory Root Inulin – Prebiotic fibre such as chicory root inulin is often overlooked in favour of probiotics, but we think it’s just as important to give them some praise too. Chicory root inulin is rich in prebiotic fibre to support the gut microbiome and digestive system. Whilst focusing on the health of your gut is important for overall optimal health and wellness, it can play a role in brain function too (known as the gut-brain axis).
Amino Acids + Plant Protein – Ancient and Brave’s Collagen is formulated with specific amino acids that you would find in true collagen, just derived from a fermented vegan source. They add in additional plant-based protein sources, such as chickpea, pea and brown rice protein and buffered vitamin C to support collagen formation and renewal within the body.
MCT Oil Powder – Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) are converted by the liver into ketone bodies which can pass the blood-brain barrier and be utilised by the brain for fuel. MCT oil is added to Ancient + Braves Inspired Collagen to support your productivity levels and focus throughout the day. The fat source also helps to balance blood sugar and aids in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, such as vitamin D3.
Ashwagandha – Arguably the most well-known adaptogen at this point, the ashwagandha in Ancient and Brave’s Inspired Collagyn helps support the adrenal glands and a healthy nervous system. It seeks out where you might be in need of a helping hand and helps support sustained energy or creates a sense of calm.
Each 10g serving of Ancient + Brave’s Inspired Collagyn provides:
- 280% NRV of buffered vitamin C to support collagen synthesis
- 800% NRV of vitamin D3 from a natural algae source
- 100% NRV of iodine from wild-harvested Hebridean seaweed.
- 85mg choline from a naturally fermented source.
- A wide range of amino acids from chickpea, brown rice and pea protein.
- White tea extracts containing flavonols and polyphenols.
- Prebiotic soluble fibre sourced from chicory root inulin.
- Adaptogen ashwagandha to help build resilience to stress.
The sheer amount of thought behind making this vegan collagen supplement just as effective as bovine collagen has us all kinds of excited. It has fast become a staple in our WFH protocol, ensuring that we stay focused and that we’re nourishing our brains just as much as the rest of our bodies. Ancient and Brave vegan collagen is great for smoothies and hot drinks, supporting mood and cognition.
Ancient + Brave recommend mixing 2 to 3tsp (10g) into a paste with a touch of water and combining with your go-to plant-based milk (hot or cold!), for a turmeric latte with benefits. We add ours to our morning smoothies, chia puddings and overnight oats. Ancient and Brave recommend taking their Inspired Collagyn daily for optimal results.

Is Collagen Vegan?
We can see how you’d be a little confused. Whilst both bovine collagen and marine collagen are derived from animals, Ancient + Brave’s Collagyn is the first supplement in the UK to provide not just three, but five collagen specific amino acids from vegan sources. So whilst collagen isn’t vegan, Ancient and Brave’s Collagyn is 100% vegan. Obsessed.
Because of the adaptogenic ashwanganda and possible overlaps with your prenatal, we recommend not. Please consult your doctor before starting any new supplement protocol. This is a food supplement and not intended to prevent or cure any diseases. Keep out of reach of children and please consult your doctor first if you are under 18, pregnant or breastfeeding, have any medical conditions or are taking any medication.
