There is a lot of buzz lately about Collagen Peptides and for good reason; these biotactive proteins have a host of benefits; especially for those of us over 30. Recent research indicates that collagen peptides (also known as hydrolyzed collagen) have application in the areas of healthy aging, joint and bone health, healthy skin, and sports nutrition.
Collagen is a major component of the human body (as well as your pet’s) making up about 30% of the body’s total proteins. It is one of the bodies primary structural proteins and it is crucial for smooth younger looking skin, glossy hair and nails, strong ligaments and tendons, healthy joints, bone health, and much more.
The bad news is after we turn 30 our collagen levels start to drop bringing to light (and the mirror) the first signs of aging. The good news is that supplementing your diet with a product like Collagen Fantastic has been shown to increase collagen levels and help reverse the signs of aging.
Our Collagen Fantastic is made from Pasture Raised New Zealand Grass-Fed beef and each serving delivers 11g of collagen peptides (Type I and III). Collagen Fantastic’s Bioactive Collagen Peptides are easily digested and soluble in cold or hot liquids, and one to two scoops a day is all you need! Adding a scoop of Collagen Peptides to food or beverages gives you the boost you need to support healthy hair, skin, nails, bone and joint health.
It can also be added to Whey Fantastic or used with Keto Fantastic for additional benefits. Collagen Fantastic is virtually flavorless and won’t impart a protein taste to your favorite beverage, smoothie or shake.
