Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body! Yupp, it's pretty much everywhere - from muscles, tendons, and bones to your skin and digestive system.
Collagen is largely known in the cosmetic world as an ingredient that helps to keep your skin elastic and your hair strong. But there is so much more to collagen than just reducing cellulite and stretch marks.
Have you ever felt like your joints were feeling a bit more achy or slower than you'd like? That might be a sign you are at a collagen deficit - increased stiffness, swollen joints and more. A recent study has even found that collagen is an effective treatment for treating osteoarthritis and other joint pain.
In addition to that, collagen can offer a boost in metabolism, muscle mass, and energy output. A healthy dose of collagen may help increase your metabolism by adding lean muscle mass and aiding in the conversion of essential nutrients. It is essential in cardiovascular health as well, shrinking fat in arteries and preventing (to a degree) fat accumulation.
Each can of Active Recovery has 2-3 grams of collagen protein to make sure your systems are moving efficiently and feeling great!
