Collagen and collagen protein have recently surged in the supplement market. With so many great benefits, it’s easy to see why. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body — it makes up a large portion of connective tissue crucial to several parts of the body, including ligaments, tendons, and muscle. There are five types of collagen, each playing a slightly different role. Some benefits include improved joint health and mobility, as well as improved hair, skin, and nail health.
TC Nutrition, an emerging Canadian brand, launched a brand-new collagen product under their new Essential Series line, along with a powdered Vitamin C product. TC Nutrition Enhanced Collagen Peptides plus Biotin and Vitamin C features types I and III hydrolyzed collagen from bovine sources. Each serving of TC Nutrition Collagen offers 9g of collagen protein and benefits including improved joint health, enhanced recovery, as well as promoting healthy hair, skin, and nails. It also features 5mg of pure Biotin and 100% of your daily intake of vitamin C.
Seven components make up a healthy, balanced diet: carbs, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals, fibre, and water. Of these components, the macros - carbs, proteins, and fats - are the easiest to track. Micronutrients like vitamins and minerals can be trickier, as you might not know what or how much you need.
Dymatize has several supplements in their repertoire that are already available in Canada. These include their long-serving Iso-100 hydrolyzed whey protein isolate, as well as their pre-workout, Pre-WO, and their full spectrum EAA, All 9 Amino.
Dymatize Iso-100 Cocoa Pebbles and Fruity Pebbles are available in Canada, and they’re right here at Supplement Superstore.
It seems like every day there’s a new trendy supplement that you “need” to take. It starts with a protein shake, and next thing you know, there are twenty things you should be trying on top of that. Supplements tout claims of making you leaner, stronger, or even smarter. It’s natural to be a little suspicious. After all, most people are aware that supplements are not federally regulated and can make any claim without proof.
