Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate Gelatin (beef, kosher) Unflavored Cold Water Soluble for use in cold beverages or recipes.
Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate is the unique combination of amino acids in concentrated levels that promotes rapid reproduction of blood cells for healing and conditioning over other proteins especially for bone and joint health care. This low molecular weight protein is easily digested for healthy enrichment in minutes after ingestion. It will not congeal because it has been hydrolyzed for quick assimilation and improved hydration to the connective tissue. Collagen is important for nitrogen balance and is now considered an anti-aging product since it supports age-related cartilage damage and collagen loss.
Collagen Hydrolysate… What is it?
Great Lakes Hydrolyzed Collagen is unique in its amino acid structure because it contains high amounts of glycine, lysine and proline, which are found in lower amounts in other protein food supplements. These particular amino acids have been found to generate cell growth much quicker, since our natural ability to produce supporting amounts of connective tissue diminishes after the age of 25. Hydrolyzed Collagen is more easily digested because of its low molecular weight and is absorbed within 30 minutes. All of the amino acids collectively are beneficial to cell reproduction, but it is the distinctive spectrum of this product that impacts the metabolic pathways to healthy tissue.
Hydrolyzed Collagen is beneficial in replacing the synovial fluids between the joints. Secondly, it repairs and builds cartilage weakened by overuse through impact and stress. Our bodies are made up of 30% collagen, 70% of which is connective tissue.
Hydrolyzed Collagen is the missing link in supplying amino acids like glycine, proline and lysine that are required by the body to build connective tissue that regulates cell growth. It benefits hair, skin tissue, muscle, cartilage, ligament and blood cell growth. Some doctors are referring to this product as the new anti-aging product of the century.
What are the benefits of Collagen Hydrolysate?
Hydrolyzed collagen will provide the missing nutritional links for most dietary supplements. A nitrogen balance is maintained for the support of age related collagen loss and cartilage damage. It is an excellent product for those with a sedentary lifestyle who may suffer from repetitive joint pain or discomfort.
Proteins are a primary element of life’s sustenance. The body contains millions of amino acids and peptides which are smaller than proteins. These are essential to the body and regulate cell function. Glycine content of collagen assists the liver in handling foreign substances for individuals exposed by habit or occupation to toxic substances like chemicals, pollutants, alcohol or tobacco. Feeling of alertness, improved concentration, balanced mood, improved energy and increased sense of well-being have been reported by many users.
Great Lakes Hydrolyzed Collagen differs from gelatin as it dissolves in cold, warm, or hot liquids and will not congeal when chilled. This feature allows this high protein product to be taken in a convenient way that suits each user’s individual needs.
