Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate

Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate has a unique amino acid profile that benefits the healing of tendons, ligaments, cartilage, collagen and even bone. It contains specialised hydroxylated amino acids, hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine, which by-pass the bodies need to manufacture them from proline and lysine, respectively. These hydroxylated amino acids enhance tissue soft tissue healing, such as tendons and ligaments, by providing basic building blocks, just like bricks for a house. This collagen hydrolysate contains all essential amino acids, excepting Tryptophan, and is about sixteen percent hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine by weight. It is also twenty-nine percent Glycine, a powerful non-essential amino acid. It is interesting to note that dietary or supplemental non-essential amino acids may be just as important as essential amino acids when it comes to optimal health-so important that our bodies have created ways to manufacture them lest our diets be deficient! Glycine is a powerful neuroinhibitor, which means that this tricky little amino acid can pass through the blood-brain barrier and calm neural over-firing. Therefore, it is helpful for stress and anxiety disorders. Glycine has countless other uses in the body. One-third of collagen found in our skin is made up of Glycine, which makes Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate helpful for skin tissue regeneration and perhaps even to slow down the ageing process itself!

 

Let’s not forget about bodybuilding and strength trainers though. Collagen Hydrolysate is beneficial for the regeneration of soft tissue, and even skeletal muscle tissue, after physical stress- such as picking up 200kg repeatedly! Heavy weight lifting, or even repeated bouts of light weights, puts a great deal of stress on tendons, ligaments and cartilage. Try to imagine the kind of stress on articular cartilage, for instance, which covers the ends of the tibia (shin bone) and femur (thigh bone) where they join, when picking up heavy weight. That cartilage is directly compressed as a results of the lift. Ever played corners in the car before? Well, the articular cartilage is you, being squashed between the door and the other person ramming up against you!

 

Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate is useful for a host of other conditions and to regulate healthy bodily functions. For instance, its amino acid composition makes it helpful for the healing of “leaky GUT Syndrome” (medically known as hyper-permeable intestinal mucosa). This condition allows undigested food particles and even harmful bacteria to enter the blood and lymph, putting a great deal of stress on the immune system and other processes of the body. Additionally, Alanine is contained at around eleven percent, which is an amino acid released from the muscle cell during training in appreciable amounts. Collagen hydrolysate may therefore assist with alanine restoration in muscle cells after exercise. 

 

 

How to Use Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate

Add one scoop (20g) to water, juice or smoothies one to three times daily. 

 

Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate may be used for:

Healing soft tissues such as tendons, ligaments, collagen and cartilage; healing the stomach and intestines; supporting relaxation; keeping the skin healthy

 

Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate is great for:

Recreational weight trainers and strength trainers; anyone wanting to recover faster from exercise; people suffering with osteoporosis or osteoarthritis; burns victims; people with digestive disturbances; individuals suffering with stress or anxiety; to prevent premature ageing of the skin; as a year-round wellness formula!
