My perfect workout accessory....collagen!

Collagen can boost your health!

You may recognize the word collagen as it’s in many facial creams and serums that promote anti-aging, anti-wrinkling and improved skin elasticity. You may also have heard people in the gym talking about it in supplement form.

So what exactly is collagen anyways?

Collagen Hydrolysate peptides are the same collagen peptides found naturally in our bones, cartilage and skin. They are easily absorbed by the body and contain over 90% protein.

As we age, our bodies start to lose the natural ability to repair tissue, bones, skin, cartilage, ligaments, hair and nails, but when collagen hydrolysate is added to the diet it’s amino acids, such as glycine, lysine and proline, can be used by the body to heal and build connective tissue that’s beneficial to cell reproduction.

Basically, it provides the missing nutrients that the body needs to repair the critical areas. It’s the material that literally holds our body together!

So what are the benefits of collagen for active individuals?

  1. Joint Health: increasing collagen can reduce pain in joints and allow the joints to move with less stiffness.
  2. Boosts Metabolism: increasing collagen helps you retain muscle mass (which is SUPER important as you age) which supports bone health and helps you burn more calories.
  3. Heart Health: the amino acid proline is needed for tissue repair and helps your artery walls shed fat that may build up in the bloodstream. It also aids in controlling blood pressure and helps prevent the hardening of the arteries which helps keep off deadly plaque accumulation.
  4. Helps Heal Leaky Gut: increasing collagen helps to heal and seal the gut so toxins can’t pass through the digestive tract and cause havoc on your body
  5. Assists Liver: the amino acid glycine helps the liver handle toxins such as chemicals, alcohol and/or tobacco.
  6. Improved Focus: with increased collagen levels energy may improve along with improved concentration and energy levels.
  7. Improves Skin, Nails, Hair & Teeth: increasing collagen can smooth and firm skin and keep your cells regenerating and repairing. Nails and teeth get stronger and possibly reverse the signs of hair loss!

Now that you know just how beneficial collagen hydrolysate is to your body let’s talk about how to use it!

Great Lakes Gelatin

The Great Lakes Gelatin Brand (GLG) is my go-to source of collagen hydolysate. The company dates back to 1922 and they were the industry leader that introduced hydrolyzed collagen to the US. They also have clean ingredient lines with 11+ grams of protein per serving.

The ultimate supplement for a healthy lifestyle...collagen!

I use the GLG pure unflavored Collagen Hydrolysate as my everyday supplement. It’s gluten-free, non-GMO, Keto certified, Paleo friendly, Kosher and contain no MSG or glyphosate. It also has no fats or carbohydrates and is available in convenience packs or canisters.

Typically I’ll stir it in my tea in the morning I’ll mix it with water and drink before, during and after a workout.

Collagen Endurance + Plus for a healthy lifestyle

GLG also has 2 energy products: Collagen Endurance and Collagen Endurance Plus.

Collagen Endurance is added to water and will give you a natural energy boost. It’s enhanced with Vitamins B1-B3, B5-B6, B9, B12 & Vitamin C. It’s naturally sweetened with stevia and honey and is best to drink pre & post workout.

Collagen Endurance Plus has all the benefits of their collagen hydrolysate but contains B-Vitamins, Vitamin C and 80mg of caffeine. I love their on-the-go packs and the black cherry flavor.
