The UK and Europe’s largest supplier of Great Lakes
Gelatin and Great Lakes Collagen.
Collagen and Gelatin are both great for supporting your body for exercise and everyday activities. Collagen is a natural component of your skin which reduces as you get older, so it makes sense to supplement and keep your skin young and beautiful. Taking collagen or gelatin in its closest original form ensures high absorption and bioavailability – making Great Lakes one of the best products on the market.
Collagen makes up approximately 30% of the proteins within your body. The body’s natural ability to repair supporting connective tissue (bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, skin, hair and nails) diminishes after the age of 25. Collagen provides the source in supplying additional amounts of amino acids like glycine, lysine and proline, which are specifically needed by the body to build connective tissue structures and regulate the function of the cells. Hydrolyzed Collagen also helps regulate the body’s metabolism. The rapid absorption and distinctive amino acid groups in this formula will positively impact a large number of metobolic pathways.
Hydrolyzed Collagen is the unique combination of amino acids in concentrated levels that promotes rapid re-production of blood cells for healing and conditioning over other proteins especially for bone and joint health care. This low molecular weight protein is easily digested for healthy enrichment in minutes after ingestion. It will not congeal because it has been hydrolyzed for quick assimilation and improved hydration to the connective tissue. Collagen is important to nitrogen balance, now considered an anti-aging product as it supports age related cartilage damage, and collagen loss.
Gelatin is a protein substance derived from collagen, so taking this directly will give you the same benefits as the hydrolysed collagen, making it even more bioavailable. Gelatin will clump in cold liquids so it is recommended to dissolve in hot liquid or room temperature liquids which allows product to dissolve or swell. Here are some fantastic uses for gelatin in the home and kitchen;
Two tablespoons per day – preferably one before or during breakfast, or one before or during dinner. Taking collagen or gelatin up to three hours prior to sleep can also be beneficial.
Great Lakes Gelatin and Collagen are both derived from Argentina and Brazil raised cattle that graze freely on the grasslands. Further information is available on the Great Lakes official website,
