Info: 454 g (1 lb) Hydrolyzed Collagen
Symptoms of reduced collagen production can include limp hair, sagging skin and muscles, loss of bone density, weaker or less flexible joints and ligaments, and thinner, weaker cartilage -- exposing us to more joint pain when we move. Great Lakes' Collagen Hydrolysate can help rectify that by supplying an array of amino acids which are the main building blocks of collagen -- several (glycine, lysine and proline) in much higher concentrations than in other protein supplements -- in a "hydrolyzed" format, meaning they've been rendered into much smaller units (with low molecular weight) so they'll be well absorbed quite quickly (within 30 minutes) without requiring a lot of digestion to break them down first.
Hydrolyzed Collagen Canada
Collagen is a fibrous protein that's used in many parts of our body to provide strength, structure, and some degree of elasticity -- including skin, hair, nails, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. It's comprised by over 1,000 amino acids, and our ability to synthesize it ourselves peaks at age 25 and degrades by about 1.5% a year thereafter, even with adequate protein in our diet, and factors like smoking or high sugar intake can worsen matters.
In addition to helping reduce joint pain and stave off the visible effects of aging such as sagging or wrinkles, other benefits of hydrolyzed collagen can include helping the liver remove toxins (due to the high glycine content), and reducing the chance of lean muscle tissue loss by maintaining nitrogen balance.
