Every parent wants certain things for their kids. Near the top of that list is obedience, happiness, safety and of course, health.
At CB Supplements, we make it our mission to help parents achieve one of these wants for their children in particular — health.
Kids are at a crucial stage of life where their bodies use the nutrients from food consumed to build strong bones and joints, and support fully-functioning internal organs like the intestines, heart and lungs.
Unfortunately, most kids lack the resources necessary to even access collagen rich foods or are not comfortable eating large amounts of animal protein including the connective tissue and organs like the liver, kidneys or bones (to make broth).
Due to this culture shift in dietary preferences, a potential repercussion might be weaker bones in our kids, which can have a devastating impact on childhood play and activities. CB Supplements collagen protein powder gives your kids bone strengthening, joint supporting nourishment that can help your children grow strong and limber into the adult years. Investing in your kids diet and supplementation when they are young will set them up for success in the future. And when they have a strong frame and agile joints to propel them at whatever life throws, they will thank you.
We've gotten this question quite a bit via our chat and wanted to address it here, too.
YES, our multi collagen protein powder products are safe for teenagers.
With the laundry list of collagen benefits for growing kids/teens/adolescents — it is a great idea to supplement! Well, unless your family drinks bone broth and eats bone-in meat everyday. We always recommend food first, but recognize that's challenging in today's world. We just eat differently than we did 100 years ago, unfortunately.
Dosage recommendation for teenagers
Start with one scoop (which will deliver around 8g of collagen) and add more scoops from there.
We recommend trying to get 15-25g per day, which is 2-3 scoops per day.
Even though the FDA makes us tell people our product is a supplement (because it's converted into a powder), collagen is food (and collagen is in food) and an important protein different than all other forms of protein since it has a unique peptide chain. That peptide tells the body to go make/repair connective tissue!
To simplify this, you can’t really overdue it on collagen.
Another interesting fact of our current dietary preferences is the amount of pro-inflammatory foods we consume including excess sugar, processed carbohydrates (wheat primarily) and hydrogenated vegetable oils (soy and canola are examples).
A diet consisting of the ‘terrible 3’ can cause inflammation in our digestive system, which may lead to a range of issues. Kids are no exception and can experience massive digestive issues due to eating a diet consisting of these 3 ingredients. But there is good news! Collagen protein has repairing and rebuilding qualities that can restore proper function to the intestinal lining, which can actually strengthen the immune system as well.
Collagen protein, especially multi collagen protein (which is collagen from multiple sources like beef, chicken, fish and eggs), can have profound impacts on health for any child. And is this not what every parent wants? For their kids to be healthy and take on life with full force?
