IMPROVES JOINT & CONNECTIVE TISSUE HEALTH
SD Pharmaceuticals SPORT COLLAGEN is rich in a number of amino acids that play an important role in the creation of collagen in the body. Research shows that taking hydrolyzed collagen can improve joint health and the symptoms of osteoarthritis by stimulating the body’s production of joint collagen.
KEY NOTE: Type II collagen is one of the main proteins in joints and cartilage. SD Pharmaceuticals SPORT COLLAGEN delivers type II collagen from chicken collagen.
ENHANCES MUSCLE RECOVERY AND GROWTH
Collagen is a fast-acting protein and a major component of muscle tissue and can therefore impact muscle growth and recovery. Collagen is also high in glycine and arginine, which are two of the three amino acids needed to make creatine in the body. Therefore, supplementing with collagen can have a positive impact on creatine levels and ATP production for your muscles.
HEALS THE GUT & IMPROVES DIGESTIVE HEALTH
An unhealthy gut can be the main cause of many conditions, such as joint pain, low energy, slow metabolism and other diseases. Collagen helps repair the tissues along the digestive tract and helps support a healthy mucosal layer in the gut. The amino acids found in collagen build the tissue that lines the colon and entire GI tract and can even help fix leaky gut syndrome.
BCAAs are a group of essential amino acids that play a key role in protein synthesis (a.k.a. muscle growth) and energy production. BCAAs include L-leucine, L-Valine and L-Isoleucine. BCAAs make up 35 to 40% of essential amino acids in total body protein.
BCAAs are essential amino acids and cannot be made by the body. They must be ingested through food or supplementation. During exercise, BCAA metabolism in muscle tissue is increased. Therefore, after aerobic exercise (i.e., cardio) and anaerobic exercise (i.e., weight training) there is a significant decrease in plasma BCAA levels in muscle tissue.
