- Amino Acids – Amino acids are the functional components of protein – the reason protein builds muscle. Consuming amino acids gives you all the anabolic power without the calories while reducing gastrointestinal stress.
- Glutamine – Glutamine is used in numerous bodily processes, including muscle anabolism, gluconeogenesis, nutrient absorption, and immunity.
- HICA-DL – HICA (Hydroxyisocaproic acid), is a leucine metabolite. Leucine is so powerful, it keeps working even after being broken down to HICA. HICA primarily functions to reduce muscle breakdown.
- Electrolytes – Electrolytes are essential for many reasons like energy production, healthy skin and preventing muscle cramps. Good hydration is vital for the distribution of nutrients around the body.
Collagen is the body’s most abundant protein and helps give structure to our, hair, skin, nails, bones, ligaments and tendons. Thanks to collagen, we’re better able to move, bend and stretch. Collagen is also behind helping hair shine, skin glow and nails stay strong.**
So, what is collagen made of? Collagen is a protein made up of amino acids glycine, proline, hydroxyproline and arginine — all of which help our body's connective tissue, skin, hair and nails stay as healthy as possible.**
As we age, and the more stress we put on our body, the greater the impact on collagen production. Adding ingestible collagen to a balanced diet can help our bodies regenerate what’s been lost or broken down.**
Collagen protein is different than whey and casein protein because of these high levels of amino acids. Muscular growth, joint health and an overall glowing appearance can be partially attributed to the amino acid blend in collagen.**
