This protocol was developed for practitioners using Fullscript in Canada and the templates cannot be applied to accounts operating outside of Canada.

Marine Collagen

2-4 scoops daily

*Can take alongside Plant-Based Collagen Booster for added protection.

Marine collagen is known as the most well-absorbed form of collagen and contains 15 essential and non-essential and non-essential amino acids to boost your overall health. Type 1 collagen, in Marine Collagen, primarily works toward the health of our hair, skin, and nails.

Organika’s Marine Collagen powder is Canadian sourced, made from the scales of wild-caught cod, pollock, and haddock from the North Atlantic.

Plant-based Collagen Booster

2 teaspoons daily 

*Can take alongside Marine Collagen (diet depending) for additional collagen support.

Plant-based collagen support is made from 7 synergistic plants to provide antioxidants for maximizing natural collagen production and to protect existing collagen from breaking down.

Carrot and ginseng peptides provide a similar amino acid structure to animal collagen powders. The addition of astaxanthin, a potent antioxidant that is 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C, helps to protect the collagen you do create.

Prebiotic + Probiotic Powder

1 sachet daily 

Studies show that probiotic supplementation can reduce the size and number of acne lesions. (1) Prebiotic + Probiotic Powder is shelf-stable with a lightly sweet and natural taste.

Prebiotic + Probiotic Powder is a blend of four clinically proven probiotic strains and Actilight, a prebiotic fiber extracted from beetroot.

Chelated Zinc 

1 tablet daily

The skin is the third most zinc-abundant tissue in the body. (2) Oral zinc supplementation has been shown to be beneficial for acne, rosacea, psoriasis. (3)

Chelated Zinc offers a potent and well-tolerated dose without upsetting the stomach. 

Vitamin C Powder

1200 mg or 1/4 teaspoon daily 

Vitamin C is key in the body’s own production of collagen. As a potent antioxidant, Vitamin C also protects our skin cells from environmental damage. 

1200 mg pure ascorbic acid per serving. The powdered format makes it easy to split servings through the day if needed to accommodate bowel tolerance.

Diet Recommendations 

1. Avoid refined sugar

Refined sugar is a potent inflammatory that can trigger skin issues. Reducing refined sugar intake (i.e., soda, candy, processed foods) can help reduce overall inflammation.

2. Reduce intake of cow’s dairy

Many people who experience rosacea and eczema find it beneficial to reduce their intake of cow’s dairy including milk, cheese, ice cream, and butter.

3. Aim for a rainbow of fruits and vegetables

Fruits and vegetables are high in fiber, which can support regular bowel movements and a diverse gut microbiome. They are also high in antioxidants, which protect our cells from damage.

4. Include zinc-rich food sources

Zinc-rich food sources include oysters, poultry, chickpeas, and cashews.
