What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant, naturally-occurring protein found in the human body and is an important building block for your body, making it essential for healthy bones, cartilage, skin, hair, and nails.
How is Collagen Made?
Our bodies make collagen naturally. We combine amino acids (the building blocks of all proteins) to do this. This process also requires other important nutrients, including some vitamins and minerals. But as we age, our body's ability to make collagen begins to decline. Our body may no longer absorb nutrients or synthesize them as efficiently. As a result, we may experience collagen loss, which can lead to some common signs of aging. These include stiff joints, sagging skin, brittle nails, lacklustre hair, and wrinkles.
Why Should I Take Collagen?
As we age and begin to experience side effects from collagen loss, we can support the production of collagen to lessen these effects. Shaklee Collagen provides the necessary building blocks to support collagen synthesis: all nine essential amino acids, plus vitamin C and biotin.
Shaklee Collagen Provides the Necessary Building Blocks to Support Collagen Synthesis
Shaklee Collagen contains all 9 essential amino acids, thanks to a combination of collagen and pea protein. Collagen contains detectable amounts of only eight essential amino acids, but all nine are required to support protein synthesis. So, we combined 2.5 g of collagen plus 1 g of pea protein to create Shaklee Collagen. This blend of collagen and pea protein provides all nine essential amino acids, vitamin C, and biotin to support the production of all proteins, including collagen.
How Should I Add Shaklee Collagen to my Favourite Drink?
Because collagen is a fibrous protein, you may have some difficulty getting it to dissolve completely into your favourite drink. For best results, add Shaklee Collagen gradually to your drink of choice, and be sure to stir well while you are adding.
