Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate

Collagen Joint Care

Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate. Collagen Joint Care. Pure Unflavoured Protein. Kosher Beef. Hydrolysed collagen can help regulate the body's metabolism by providing protein of low molecular weight that is quickly absorbed in the digestive tract. The rapid absorption and distinctive amino acid groups in this formula will impact a large number of metabolic pathways. The body's ability to repair supporting connective tissue (bone, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, skin, hair and nails) diminishes in ones mid twenties.  Collagen contains amino acids such as glycine, lysine and proline which are important amino acids and can be used by the body to build connective tissue structures to support the functions of the cells.  There are 38 serves of 12,000mg of Collagen Hydrolysate in this container. 454 grams

Health Information

Some information from Great Lakes Gelatin about their product

Collagen Hydrolysate... What is it?

Hydrolyzed Collagen is unique in its amino acid structure because of its high amounts of glycine, lysine and proline, which are found in lower amounts in other protein food supplements. These particular amino acids are found to generate cell growth much quicker because the natural ability to produce supporting amounts of connective tissue diminishes after the age of 25.

Hydrolyzed Collagen is more easily digested because of its low molecular weight and is absorbed within 30 minutes. All of the amino acids collectively are beneficial to cell reproduction, but it is the distinctive spectrum of this product that impacts the metabolic pathways to healthy tissue.

Hydrolyzed Collagen is beneficial in replacing the synovial fluids between the joints and secondly, to repair and build cartilage weakened by overuse through impact and stress. Our bodies are made up of 30% collagen of which 70% of these proteins are connective tissue made of collagen.

Hydrolyzed Collagen is the missing link in supplying amino acids like glycine, proline and lysine that are required by the body to build connective tissue to regulate cell growth. It will benefit hair, skin tissue, muscle, cartilage, ligaments and blood cell growth. Some doctors are referring to this product as the new anti-aging product of the century.

What are the benefits of Collagen Hydrolysate?

Hydrolyzed collagen gelatin will provide the missing nutritional links for most dietary supplements. A nitrogen balance is maintained for the support of age related collagen loss and cartilage damage. It is an excellent product for those with a sedentary lifestyle who may suffer from repetitive joint pain or discomfort.

Proteins are a primary element of life’s sustenance. The body contains millions of amino acids and peptides which are smaller than proteins. These are essential to the body which regulate functions of the cells. Glycine content of collagen assists the liver in handling foreign substances for individuals exposed by habit or occupation to toxic substances like chemicals, pollutants, alcohol or tobacco. Feeling of alertness, improved concentration, balanced mood, improved energy and increased sense of well-being have been reported by many users.

Hydrolyzed Collagen differs from gelatin as it will dissolve in cold, warm, or hot liquids and will not congeal when chilled. This feature allows taking a high protein product in a convenient way that suits your needs.

Great Lakes Gelatin Grass Fed Cattle and Animal Welfare Program Statement

Great Lakes Gelatin shares the concerns that many of our customers have about animal welfare and the quality of the grazing conditions for cattle.  We believe cattle should be raised in a natural environment.  Our bovine gelatin is made from the hides of cattle from our associated partners in Argentina and Brazil.

Ranchers in Argentina and Brazil have traditionally raised cattle in herds that graze freely on the natural grasslands.  Based on visiting the region, it is our observation that this is the case.

Great Lakes Gelatin has a long history with our foreign partners and we only do business with sources that we trust are adhering to the principles of animal welfare and are grazing herds in the traditional manner.  

Great Lakes Gelatin, Quality Assurance

Great Lakes Gelatin for your Horse or Dog

Contrary to popular belief, hoofs, horns, hair, feathers or for that matter any Keratin material is not a source of Gelatin!

  • For Healthy Bones, Hair and Hoofs
  • The 90% Pure Protein Builder for Any Age animal
  • For all-Around Strength and Stamina

Gelatin for canine / equine provides the additional required nutriment to ensure sound connective tissue. This product helps build and maintain healthy bones and hair. Example, a lack of protein may not show immediately in hoof structure where it is plainly noticeable. When the deficiency becomes apparent, damage may already have occurred in other tissue.

Gelatin for canine / equine is not a superficial treatment. It should be fed daily as a supplement to regular feedings. Results of these feedings may not be apparent for several weeks and are dependent on a regular daily dosage.

As people and animals age, the ability to produce healthier connective tissue declines.  Collagen helps to fortify new growth cells that remarkably improve connective tissue, hoofs, hair, cartilage, tendons, & ligaments.

In all higher animal life you will find these benefits.

  • Lean muscle gain  
  • Joint rebuilding
  • Arterial Strengthening
  • Thickening of hair & hoofs
  • Benefits vital organs
  • Bone health

Collagen/Gelatin in any discussion of metabolic physiology promotes optimum athletic performance.
