Perfect Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides - 660 grams
Hydrolyzed Collagen Powder Exclusively from Brazilian Pasture Raised (Grass Fed) Cows
Easy to absorb, assimilate and utilize - Protein rich - Hydrolyzed Collagen
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and has a major impact on our overall health and well being! As with all proteins, collagen is made up of amino acids. Perfect bovine hydrolyzed collagen powder does an amazing job of supplying the beneficial and often missing amino acids which are the building blocks of proteins in a form that is very easy for the body to assimilate.Collagen is already in our body, but tends to decline as we age. Collagen supplements when added to our daily regime can assist with:
- Improving digestion and gut health - very assimilable
- Joints, connective tissue, tendons, cartilage
- Building and restoring muscle
- Stronger nails
- Healthier bones
- Improving skin elasticity
- Balancing metabolism
- Healthier brain function
The best bovine hydrolyzed collagen powder comes from
- Pasture raised cows that have been raised humanely, without hormones, antibiotics, chemical fertilizer feed, or pesticides.
- Enzymatic processing that never uses excessive heat
- Small particle sizes - The tiny particle sizes make this collagen so much easier for the body to absorb, assimilate and utilize. Perfect hydrolyzed collagen has a very low molecular weight of 5,000 Daltons - as compared to 150,000 daltons in bone broth (which is much heavier) without altering the amino acids the body needs.
Muscles - Collagen is made up of amino acids and these amino acids are the building blocks of muscles and pretty much every other part of our body. Collagen contains the amino acid Proline. Proline plays a key role in the repair and production of muscles. When our body is rich in collagen (a protein) it has the resources it needs to build, repair and retain muscles. Remember, the heart is a muscle as well !
Bones - Ninety percent of the organic material in our bones is collagen. Simply put, if we want to have healthy bones, we need to have ample collagen.
Joints - The key to healthy joints is cartilage. The main component of cartilage is collagen. When collagen reserves dip in our body, supplementing with hydrolyzed collagen can help those stiff and achy joints.
Digestive System - Glycine, an amino acid found in collagen plays an important role in our digestive health. Glycine helps with the production of bile in the gallbladder and balances the acid-base ratio in our digestive track.
Brain, Heart and Central Nervous System - Once again, it is the amino acids that make up collagen that play such an important role. Proline is necessary for healthy heart arterial function, healthy blood pressure and wound healing.
Skin -Collagen naturally declines as we age. Seventy percent of the protein in our skin is collagen. When collagen is taken internally it helps give the skin structure, strength and elasticity.
Regarding cellulite - where the fibers in the skin break down and the cellulite is pushed up to skin level - collagen can help repair those skin fibers and in effect push cellulite down and decrease it from showing on the skin.
Hair - Did you ever wonder how your hair receives nutrients? Each bulb of hair on our head is surrounded by a sheath of collagen with tiny micro vessels that deliver nutrients. Having plenty of collagen assists in keeping our hair nutrient rich and healthy.
Restful Sleep - Glycine is responsible for building healthy DNA and RNA strands. Research also shows that Glycine can help us have more restful sleep.
What Does Hydrolyzed Collagen Mean?Perfect hydrolyzed collagen has the highest bioavailability of any form of collagen. Hydrolyzed simply means: A natural enzyme process has been used to break down the very long chain collagen, into shorter chain Collagen Peptides. Why do this? Because this makes it much easier for the body to absorb (as compared to some of the bone broths with the heavier particle sizes). Perfect hydrolyzed collagen goes through multiple levels of enzymatic processing to break the large, triple chain helix collagen down into much smaller, easier to absorb and lighter collagen peptides. Standard gelatin (cooked collagen) may have a weight of 150,000 Daltons (a measure of molecular weight). This larger and heavier protein is harder to absorb. Our Collagen Hydrolysate ends up having a molecular weight of just 5,000 Daltons.
How Much Do I Take?
One, two or three scoops. For maintenance, I personally take one scoop two or three times per day, either between meals with water, coconut milk or added to a protein drink or any drink. Twice a day is a good idea initially. If you are 60+ consider taking 2 to 3 scoops a day.
