Bovine collagen is sourced from cattle in Argentina that graze freely on the natural grasslands.
Being an athlete requires consistency and repetition, and, consequently, can result in normal wear, tear, and strain on our bones, joints, and connective tissues. As any athlete knows, being sidelined mid-season or just as you’re starting to achieve those fitness gains and personal bests is never fun.
Klean Collagen+C™ is a delicious natural berry drink mix that contains easily absorbable collagen peptides combined with naturally sourced vitamin C from organic amla fruit for joint and connective tissue support, to keep you in the game as much as possible.
Research shows that supplemental collagen peptides help maintain cartilage health by promoting cartilage regeneration, and offer protection for connective tissue by supporting healthy collagen production. Vitamin C, in combination with the amino acids proline and glycine found in collagen, has been studied for its synergistic effects on the production of collagen after exercise. When your health, performance and mobility are on the line, give your body every asset it needs to crush that next workout and push back stronger day after day. Klean Collagen+C™ is your tool to do just that.*
FUNCTIONS AND MECHANISM OF ACTION
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, synthesized by fibroblasts, chondrocytes and osteoblasts. Our joint cartilage and ligaments are made up of 70% collagen and our tendons are 85%. These fibers are highly dense triple helix alpha-chains of amino acids with ~ 1000 amino acid residues per chain. Intact collagen has a tightly bound protein structure and is hard to digest, but when broken down to its hydrolyzed (peptide) form it is easily absorbed in the intestinal tract. Collagen and gelatin are derived from the same source so they have identical amino acid profiles which include essential and non-essential amino acids glycine, glucosamine, hydroxyproline and proline. Collagen peptides offer protection for connective tissue that may become injured as a result of insufficient collagen in the tissues. Several in vitro studies demonstrate that labeled collagen peptides when present in the blood, will reach the connective tissues. These peptides appear in the targeted tissues ~1-2 hours after ingestion. Research shows that supplemental collagen peptides help maintain cartilage health by promoting cartilage regeneration and offer protection for connective tissue by supporting healthy collagen production. Vitamin C in combination with the amino acids proline and glycine found in gelatin has been studied for its synergistic effects on the production of collagen after exercise.*
Q: What is collagen?
A: Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, making up about 30-35% of the total protein. Collagen is in every tissue of the body and is the connective tissue in structures such as skin, hair, nails, bones, lungs, heart and liver. It is often referred to as the glue that holds the body together. Collagen contains glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, the three amino acids the body uses to manufacture its own collagen.
