Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate

 

  • Essential and non-essential amino acids
  • Assists with soft tissue and bone healing
  • Aid recovery from Sports and Exercise
  • May support mental relaxation
  • Boost Skin Elasticity

 

 

Great Lakes Collagen has a unique amino acid profile that may support the healing of soft tissues, such as cartilage, collagen and bone. It contains the hydroxylated amino acids, hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine, which reduces the need for endogenous synthesis from proline and lysine, respectively.

 

 

These hydroxylated amino acids may enhance soft tissue healing by providing basic building blocks for regeneration. Great Lakes Collagen contains all of the essential amino acids, except for Tryptophan.

It is approximately sixteen per cent hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine, by weight. It is also twenty-nine per cent Glycine, which is a non-essential amino acid. Glycine is a strong neuroinhibitor1, which means that it can pass through the blood-brain barrier and slow neural impulses.

 

 

Therefore, it may prove useful for stress and anxiety. Glycine also plays many other roles in the body. One-third of collagen found in our skin is composed of Glycine.

 

 

A clinical trial published in Skin Pharmacology and Physiology in 2014 demonstrated the ability of hydrolysed collagen supplementation to increase skin elasticity in elderly women2.

 

 

When it comes to bodybuilders and strength trainers, there may also be a role for Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate as a dietary supplement. I’m sure that you can imagine the incredible stress on the the various connective tissues, bones and muscles involved in moving or lifting repeatedly heavy weight.

 

 

For instance, the stress placed on articular cartilage, which covers the ends of the tibia (shin bone) and femur (thigh bone) where they join, would be incredible. That cartilage is directly compressed as a result of certain weight lifting movements.

 

 

Clinical trials have indicated that collagen hydrolysate can increase bone mineral density in osteoporosis and provide symptomatic relief in osteoarthritis3. It may, therefore, also have a role in supporting recovery of bone and cartilage from the stress involved in weight-bearing exercise.

Great Lakes Collagen may also be useful for the symptomatic management of “leaky GUT Syndrome” (hyper-permeable intestinal mucosa). This condition allows undigested food particles and even pathogenic bacteria to enter the blood and lymph, which can place stress on the immune system and other areas of the body.

 

 

Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate is a versatile supplement that may be used for nutritional support, due to its unique nutrient profile.
