Vanilla Collagen Protein Powder ~ 17.6oz

Amino acid building blocks for high performance

Upgraded Collagen is the gold standard for protein powders. Amino acids are the building blocks your body uses to make muscles. While collagen can help the body build or maintain muscle and speed recovery if working out, a person doesn’t have to pump iron to benefit. In fact, most people enjoy collagen for its other benefits – including…

  • Promoting resilient, flexible joints
  • Supporting hair and nail growth and strength
  • Reducing wrinkles and stretch marks
  • And even upgrading skin with a radiant, healthy ‘glow’

Collagen is often referred to as the glue that holds the body together. Unfortunately, your body produces less of it as you get older, which results in fine lines and wrinkles. Taking collagen orally can improve skin elasticity, reduce wrinkles, and increase skin moisture while stimulating the body to produce its own collagen.

Upgraded Collagen contains the amino acids glycine, lysine and hydroxyproline which are the building blocks your body uses to make muscles, bones, teeth, and joints while providing structure to the skin. Additionally, glycine combines with glutamine and cysteine to support the production of glutathione, your body’s master antioxidant.

Furthermore, Upgraded Collagen taken at bedtime provides arginine to stimulate growth hormone release, and provides nutrients necessary to perform tissue repair while sleeping. It mixes easily with other foods and shakes thanks to its neutral taste.

Benefits:

  • Rebuild
  • Repair
  • Restore
  • Fortify Your Skin, Nails, Hair and Joints

Overview & Benefits

What is collagen?

Collagen is the largest and 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.

What does collagen do, exactly?

1) Smoother, more hydrated skin

Skin and connective tissue contain special cells called fibroblasts that manufacture collagen. They can crank it out as long as they have plenty of glycine, proline, hydroxyproline. The best way to get those amino acids is hydrolyzed collagen, which has been broken down so it’s more bioavailable.

Hydrolyzed collagen:

Improves skin elasticity.
Decreases skin cracking.
Helps smooth out wrinkles.
Increases fibroblast density, a marker of healthy, elastic skin.
Increases skin moisture.

2) Stronger joints

Collagen can also strengthen joints, increasing their resilience. Several studies have found that taking hydrolyzed collagen decreases joint pain after exercise and increases the density of cartilage, making joints more flexible.

Collagen is also a great hack for endurance athletes, particularly if the preferred exercise is tough on joints. Long-distance running is the worst offender. Most sports take their toll, as can heavy lifting.

3) Faster recovery

Collagen is the main protein the body recruits to help build everything from the connective tissue in skin to the tendons that attach muscles to bone. It works well for several reasons:

Collagen forms a flexible matrix, covering new tissue while still allowing it to move. It acts as a sort of scaffold that holds everything together so other cells can rebuild.
It helps keep tissue clean.
It can assimilate with surrounding tissue, helping to bring pieces of tissue together.

Bulletproof Collagen protein makes it easy to get the same vital amino acids found in bone broth without the time-consuming preparation. And because collagen is flavorless and blends in quickly without clumps, it’s one of the easiest ways to add a protein boost to smoothies, soups, and of course, Bulletproof® coffee.

Why Add Extra Collagen To Your Diet?

Traditionally, collagen used to make its way into our diets through foods like bone broths, slow-cooked organ meats, kidney pies, baked beef hearts, whole crustaceans, and whole-fish soups and stews…

However, unless you’re routinely eating these types of meals, chances are you’re barely getting any naturally occurring collagen protein in your diet at all!

Bulletproof Collagen Mixes Easily

Because of special enzymatic processing, Bulletproof Collagen doesn’t clump, and mixes invisibly in your favorite shakes, smoothies – or even plain water. Plus, because collagen is flavorless and more heat-stable than whey you can even mix it into your coffee (or any other hot beverage) without hurting its nutritional quality, or the taste.

What Are The Differences Between Collagen, Whey & Collagelatin™?

One of the biggest differences between collagen and whey is in the amino acids: Collagen is high in glycine – an amino acid that combines with glutamine and cysteine to support the production of glutathione, your body’s master antioxidant.

And because Bulletproof Collagen is enzymatically hydrolyzed (breaking the bonds that form gelatin), Bulletproof Collagen protein does not thicken upon cooling like regular gelatin. For collagen protein that also thickens (for use in recipes like puddings), try Bulletproof Collagelatin.

Sourcing

Upgraded Collagen is High Quality

Bulletproof™ Collagen Protein comes from grass-fed, hormone-free cows that spend their entire lives in the pasture. And unlike cheaper collagen that can end up damaged by heat, Bulletproof Collagen is enzymatically processed several times to leave its nutrition-giving peptides intact. That makes it highly bioavailable (for maximum nutritional potency) – giving you a neutral-tasting, odorless protein that doesn’t thicken or clump.

Bulletproof Collagen does not contain any dairy, egg, sugar, corn, yeast, wheat, soy, gluten, artificial flavors, or preservatives.

Use & Ingredients

Collagen is one of the most important nutrients needed to maintain a strong body and keep you in healing mode.

Unfortunately the average person has hardly any collagen in their diet! Collagen traditionally made its way into our diets through bone-broths, slow-cooked organ meats, kidney pie, baked beef heart, whole crustaceans, and whole fish soups and stews. But now, few people prepare foods with this source of meats, so we developed Upgraded Collagen to give ourselves the simplest and best source of these essential nutrients. Upgraded Collagen is a dietary supplement that can be added to any liquid drink, or meal you already make, without needing to cook time-consuming broths, stews, soups, and organ meats.

Hydrolyzed collagen powder, Bulletproof™ XCT® oil powder (caprylic and capric acid triglycerides from highly refined coconut and/or palm kernel oil, tapioca dextrin), coconut creamer powder (nonfat dry coconut milk, non-GMO maltodextrin, coconut oil, gum acacia, less than 2% sunflower lecithin, tri-calcium phosphate), natural vanilla flavor, erythritol, cellulose gum, Rebaudioside A (refined stevia leaf extract).

Recommended Usage: Use 1 tablespoon in 1/2 a cup or more of water or in your favorite beverage (like Bulletproof Coffee).

Shelf Life: 2 years
