Type I and 3 Collagen
Grass-fed collagen has been carefully selected for its unique amino acid profile, high absorption rate (>96%) and anti-ageing benefits backed by science. 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 anti-ageing, vitality and mobility boosting benefits and these represent around 50% of its total amino acid content; the Glycine and Proline concentration in our unique collagen 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.
DID YOU KNOW?
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.
