Collagen is a protein found in connective tissues of the body. It is significant in making certain parts of the body such as nails strong and is also an important factor in joint health.
However, the production of this substance diminishes as people grow older. The results of this lower production include wrinkles, thinning skin and brittle hair. Individuals suffering from conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis often take collagen supplement to replace collagen in the joints.
Collagen is an essential part of a healthy, active body. As a key structural protein, it provides the building blocks you need to stay strong while you’re busy living life to the fullest. So while “active” may look different for everyone, we all need to same support.
Progressive, a Canadian natural health company has just released Complete Collagen to mend and repair your body so you can run, bend, lift and stretch with ease. Complete Collagen comes in power form with flavors of Tropical Breeze and Citrus Twist, or unflavored. Progressive’s Complete Collagen boasts the following benefits: *Supports collagen and connective tissue formation. *Helps to maintain strong bones, cartilage, teeth and gums. *Nourishes healthy hair, skin and nails. *Builds lean muscle when combines with regular resistance training and a healthy balanced diet.
Complete Collagen has 10g or non-GMO collagen per scoop. Current research shows that this daily dose of collagen is an ideal amount to help mend an active body. It is sourced from pasture-raised, grass-fed cattle. This means you can be sure your collagen is free from both antibiotics and added hormones. Also added Vitamin C, so you can make the collagen you need. Your body can’t use a collagen supplement without Vitamin C, so Progressive has added 100% of the recommended daily dosage, to ensure you get the full benefit.
There is also added Tryptophan to complete the amino. Collagen does NOT contain all the essential amino acids, unless you add tryptophan. Tryptophan is the missing link that completes collagen’s amino acid profile, helping to improve its protein quality. Another benefit of this product is that it is enzymatically hydrolyzed for easy mixing and better absorption. Hydrolyzed means Complete Collagen is easily absorbed by your body and mixes instantly in any liquid. They use an enzymatic process, which is much cleaner than alternatives that leave behind chemical residue.
Whether it is your tired achy joints, or those wrinkles that seem to have crept in from out of nowhere, Complete Collagen is a great choice to compliment any health regime.
Always consult with your health care practitioner before starting any supplement program.
