We can’t stress enough the importance of collagen for everyone!
Whether you’re an athlete or not, collagen is one of those supplements that you should have in your household. It's super convenient, and very easy to use because you can add it to any drink, smoothie or even coffee!
What is collagen and why would you need it?
Collagen is the main structural component of ligaments, tendons, teeth, and connective tissue. Meaning, it makes up some of your most important parts of your body that help keep you going on a daily basis. Over time with aging and exercise, those collagen stores lessen and that can cause some discomfort. Achy joints, brittle bones, nails and teeth can be a result of a decreased collagen production.
When it comes to exercise, you are utilizing your joints, tendons and ligaments on a daily basis. With the utilization of those important bodily components, they can start getting weak and broken down. One of the most important supplements to take to avoid that is collagen! On top of prevention, it actually can strengthen your joints, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue.
Great Lakes Collagen is one of the highest quality collagen supplements available!
This product provides Collagen Hydrolysate, which is a pure form of collagen. This pure form is the most abundant protein in the human body that we naturally produce and ingest through various foods. As mentioned above, as we age, we begin to produce less collagen and our bodies can suffer the effects of aging. The hydrolysate form of collagen is the most absorbed form that gets quickly transported to the bloodstream to do its job!
How We Use It:
Collagen is one of the most flexible supplements out there. You can add it to any drink! All it needs is a good mix and you won’t know it’s there.
We like to add 2 scoops of Great Lakes Collagen to our morning coffee or smoothies to kickstart our day just right. In addition to the benefits of collagen, you also get some healthy protein in your drink to balance out your morning macronutrients!
