What is Hydrolyzed Bovine Type I & III Collagen?
Collagen is a protein that provides structure to much of your body, including your skin, tendons, bones and ligaments. All of these tissues, the tendons, bones and ligaments themselves, are made up of proteins. One of the most predominant proteins is called collagen. In nature, collagen is found exclusively in animals, especially in the flesh and connective tissues of mammals. Collagen is vital for skin elasticity. With age, collagen production slows and the cells structures weaken. The skin gets thinner and is easier to damage, skin sags and wrinkles, hair gets lifeless, tendons and ligaments become less elastic and joints get stiff.
Hydrolyzed bovine collagen supplementation can support skin, nails, hair, joint and muscle health. Studies show that hydrolyzed collagen can help strengthen your joints and help with pain caused by conditions like osteoarthritis.
What ingredients are in Collagen?
Our product contains hydrolyzed type I and III collagen peptides powder sourced from grass-fed, pasture raised cattle. A 10 gram (1 scoop) daily serving is recommended. Mix one scoop into 250mL of beverage of your choice. This powder can be added to cold or hot beverages. This product is non-GMO, dairy free, soy free, gluten free and contains no artificial ingredients.
What is GutMEND®?
GutMEND® is a unique, safe and effective natural health product that contains an innovative combination of amino acid, herbal and flavonoid ingredients that are clinically proven to relieve gut inflammation and indigestion, and to promote digestive health. GutMEND® was carefully crafted with a combination of synergistic nutrients. This product does not contain any probiotics. Probiotics don’t work for everyone due to unique gene makeup, age, health, diet and bacteria that you already have in your body. Probiotics don’t work if the dose is incorrect (too few CFU), if it's the wrong strain or if they were stored improperly. Humidity, heat and light can affect probiotics negatively. Some may need to be refrigerated. One of the biggest challenges with probiotics is their fragile nature. They must survive the process of manufacturing, storage, and survive the trip through stomach acid and bile in order to be effective and colonize your gut.
What ingredients are in GutMEND®?
GutMEND® contains well known gut health ingredients such as Glutamine, Marshmallow Root, Globe Artichoke, Caraway, Ginger, Calendula and Quercetin. Together, the ingredients create a synergistic formulation to help relieve gut inflammation, indigestion, dyspepsia, flatulence and nausea.
