NutriFlex POWERHOUSE ACTIVE NUTRIENT
Collagen Type I + III (Amino Acids)
ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS ARE THE POWER OF PROTEIN
Collagen is the most abundant protein in an animal’s body. It literally holds everything together, reduces inflammation, and promotes digestive and immune function, muscle strength, bone density and wound healing. Collagen protein is a unique building block comprised of essential amino acids that provide strength and structural support to skin, hair, nails tendons and ligaments and is essential to muscle recovery and repair. Unfortunately, the body’s native collagen production rapidly declines with age. Natural collagen depletion results in the visible and degenerative effects of ageing. Lost collagen can easily be restored with a daily serving of daily maintenance or advanced joint support collagen complex powders.
Grass-fed collagen is an excellent source of protein (97% by dry weight). Protein is crucial to providing dogs, cats, horses and ponies with healthy, balanced nutrition. Protein and amino acids are vital to optimal function, health and immunity.
There are three macronutrients in nutrition – protein, fat, and carbohydrates. Proteins are the structural components of organs, soft tissues, muscle fibres, skin, hair, nails, and blood. They can function as enzymes, hormones, and antibodies. Proteins are used to transmit and store molecules throughout the body. Excess protein that surpasses the need for muscle tissue maintenance is used for energy.
The collagen we use has been carefully selected for its unique amino acid profile and excellent bioavailability (absorption rate >96%), unlike any other source. It contains 18 amino acids including 8 essential amino acids (essential amino acids cannot be produced by the body and can only be derived from the diet). Amino acids are the building blocks of tissues and the primary component of proteins. Glycine, Proline and Hydroxyproline are key to any collagen’s vitality and mobility boosting benefits and these represent around 50% of its total amino acid content; the Glycine and Proline concentration is 10 to 20 times higher than in other proteins. As a result, collagen offers wellness benefits that cannot be found in other protein sources.
Deficiencies of any essential amino acids over time can lead to premature ageing and health problems.
If protein levels are higher than needed, any excess will be excreted as urine. If very high levels of protein are fed for an extended period, excess protein not used for energy can be stored as fat. Protein deficient diets may lead to fatigue, weakness, weight loss, and a rough and dull-looking coat.
Each daily scoop of fortified collagen contains 18 naturally derived amino acids with a unique abundance of glycine, proline and hydroxyproline.
* Essential Amino Acids that cannot be synthesised by the body and must be supplied in the diet.
