This low calorie ultra protein supplement is derived from hydrolyzed collagen, supplying full-spectrum amino acids in natural balance. Delicious-tasting Liquid Amino is the high performance muscle fuel the body can easily digest, absorb and utilize. Provides efficient protein utilization to help promote lean muscle tone, nourish body cells and support healthy enzyme function.
Vitamin Power's new LIQUID AMINO protein supplement is a major sports nutrition formula, but provides a wide range of essential nutritional benefits for people of all ages, from children to seniors, men and women at all levels of fitness. It's one of the most versatile, multi-functional nutritional supplements an individual can include in their daily healthcare regimen.
Collagen is a protein compound naturally synthesized by the body, consisting of a unique amino acid and peptide profile. Although collagen protein is used primarily as a dietary supplement to help promote the development of lean muscle mass through the metabolism of fat, it also has an essential role in nourishing body cells and enzymes; It's beneficial for supporting healthy metabolic function and maintaining the structure of connective tissues including skin, bone, joints, tendons, ligaments and cartilage.
Collagen is extracted from bovine (beef) sources utilizing a process called hydrolysis, making it more digestible and more readily absorbed by the body. After the initial extraction of collagen, it is then concentrated through a sterile evaporation process, desiccated (all fat removed), pulverized, then finely-milled into a nutraceutical-grade powder and liquefied for easy digestion and efficient utilization.
Collagen Protein supplementation helps reduce some of the regular problems associated with arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis. This common chronic inflammatory condition causes inflammation of joints and surrounding tissues.
According to recent research articles, people who suffer from chronic arthritis typically have lower levels of collagen in their joints. Inflammation and immune system response can contribute to the destruction of the body's natural collagen. By maintaining sufficient levels of collagen in the body, people can help alleviate joint pain and stiffness typically associated with arthritis.
Collagen makes up 75% of your skin. Unfortunately, the body's own collagen production slows down considerably when you reach your mid 20's. That's why adequate daily collagen protein supplementation helps revitalize the youthful texture and naturally healthy appearance of skin, as well as hair, nails and teeth.
Collagen is needed for maintaining healthy skin because it's necessary for the normal regeneration of healthy skin tissues; Supplementing high quality collagen protein can improve the body's ability to build new skin cells.
Research has suggested that the moisture content of skin, its natural elasticity and smoothness benefit from dietary intake of Collagen protein. This may be due to the increased density of collagen fibrils and the fibroblasts (the main cells of the dermis and the cells responsible for producing collagen).
Collagen supplementation is recommended to help clear up skin, reducing the appearance of acne, eczema, and some scars. According to a recent article published in the "Journal of Pediatric Endocrinology and Metabolism," proper collagen supplementation is safe and beneficial for nutritionally supporting the treatment of acne in teenagers and adolescents.
Several studies have shown that regular daily intake of hydrolyzed collagen increases bone mass density, including healthy tooth structure. It appears that hydrolyzed collagen peptides stimulate beneficial "osteoblasts" activity, assisting the cells that build bone while stopping the action of "osteoclasts" the cells that destroy bone.
CCollagen's natural ability to speed the recovery process after exercise, especially after intensive training is crucial; Not only is it beneficial for assisting lean muscle growth, it's also helpful for revitalizing and rebuilding joints, while reducing activity-related joint pain.
It's important to know that collagen protein is not stored as fat, but is used efficiently by the body as protein energy. Each serving of LIQUID AMINO Collagen Protein supplies the highest quality protein, with the essential amino acids a body needs; The collagen is vital for supporting the strength of internal structures and the precious energy required for rapid rebuilding.
RRegular physical training by athletes, sports and fitness enthusiasts produces stressful reaction forces on their joints and tendons, especially compared to average people. Athletes experience intense shock absorption from constant training which can result in joint degradation over time.
By improving the shock-absorbing capacity of the joints through collagen-enhanced nutritional intake, it could help prevent injury while allowing for more effective performance training.
Since Hydrolyzed Collagen has been shown to promote an anabolic (building) effect on cartilage tissue, the rationale for it improving joint structure and integrity in athletes, ultimately leading to a reduction in joint pain, is well-grounded.
AAs people get older, the body naturally produces less of its own collagen. This eventually increases a person's risk for developing arthritic conditions and can also cause wrinkles to develop, contributing to the visible signs of aging.
Although many commercial collagen products for aging are typically available in a topical ointment or cream that is applied directly to skin, a recent scientific study published in "Journal of Food Science" showed how regular oral collagen supplementation improved the collagen content and appearance of skin as well.
Hydrolyzed collagen, like gelatin, is made from bovine (beef source) by-products. It has a good, synergistic effect with other nutritional proteins. The risk of collagen overdose is low due to thewater-solubility of collagen. That's why any collagen that your body does not use is naturally excreted by the body.
The bioavailability of hydrolyzed collagen has been demonstrated in laboratory-controlled studies, with more than 90% typically digested and absorbed within 6 hours, with measurable accumulation in cartilage and skin, it is one of the healthiest and most cost-effective sources of protein available.
Hydrolyzed collagen contains twenty amino acids (essential and non-essential), it's a particularly rich source of Glycine, Proline and Hydroxyproline, important for promoting lean muscle tone.
