Upgraded Collagen supplies collagen and the essential proteins proline en glycine. Collagen can be found in a range of foods, such as bone-broths, slow-cooked organ meats, kidney pie, baked beef heart, whole crustaceans, and whole fish soups and stews. Upgraded Collagen is a dietary supplement that can be added to any liquid drink, or paleo meal you already make, without needing to cook time-consuming broths, stews, soups, and organ meats.
Our Upgraded Collagen is sourced from the purest pasture-raised cows. These cattle are untouched by drugs or hormones and are not just “grass-fed” (which can mean grass-fed, but grain finished, or only fed grass sometimes) but actually spend their entire lives in the pasture.
Unlike gelatin, which is damaged by heat processing, Upgraded Collagen is enzymatically processed several times to leave its peptides intact, resulting in a neutral tasting, highly available protein that doesn’t clump up or have a strong taste like gelatin. It is far easier to use and contains more collagen than bone broth.
Our collagen source has been used safely for many years, and is certified by the FDA as GRAS (generally recognized as safe).
As the largest protein in the body, collagen is a chain of over 1500 amino acids. One of the main amino acids in this chains is proline. Glycine is another amino acid that is highly concentrated in collagen.
As a daily supplement, take 1-2 tablespoons of Upgraded Collagen before bed. Upgraded Collagen will provide best effects when taken in conjunction with Upgraded Whey Protein to provide you essential amino acids, and bioactive milk peptides.
