Do you work out? Do you work out a lot? Are you wondering why you aren’t experiencing all the sweet ‘gains’ you see your instagram idol enjoying? Well, first of all, let's take a collective breath, and not compare 'our gains' to professional athletes’ who’ve been working on it for years. THEN let's look at how Collagen can be a HUGE help!
CB Supplements Collagen has 9 ‘essential’ amino acids not produced by the body. According to the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health (or NIH) “Amino acids are organic compounds that combine to form proteins…When proteins are digested or broken down, amino acids are left. Amino acids can also be used as a source of energy by the body. (1)
Amino Acids that are particularly helpful in building muscle.
Proline is an Amino Acid (found in CB Supplements Collagen) that helps stimulate muscle growth and strengthens your joints, tendons, and heart muscles (2)
Glycine is another Amino Acid found in Collagen. It helps maintain muscle mass, prevent the loss of cartilage, and improve athletic performance (3).
So, adding 2-3 Scoops of CB Supplements Collagen gives your body the foundation to build muscle and improve joint, tendon, and heart health. Which means, you can go harder, longer, and become stronger!
