What does it do?
→ Increases strength and elasticity of body tissues
→ Supports our body by providing numerous key amino acids in high concentrations that are hard to rival in just what you eat

Why do you need it?
→ Helps in healing by rebuilding tissue, preventing premature breakdown of tissue and even protecting against bone and joint degenerative diseases
→ Improves sleep – Amino acids like Glycine contribute to improving the occasional sleeplessness or fatigue when supplemented at night.
→ Supports thyroid health – Glycine and proline boost thyroid production by boosting thyroid hormone conversion when improving the body’s ability to utilize T3.
How do you choose the right one?
→ Hydrolyzed collagen ( also called collagen hydrolysate) over bone broth
→ Choose from organic and/or grass-fed cows or sustainably sourced seafood
→ Pure collagen should be colorless when mixed with water and virtually tasteless.
