New goals for a new season in life means new adventures. For the past 30 days I have incorporated Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate and Collagen Endurance into my daily nutritional route. Well on this journey I have discovered a lot about myself as it relates to fitness and nutrition. As some of you may know my daughter Peyton follows a very strict diet which has eliminated a lot of foods from our daily food repertoire. So, I was excited to see how adding collagen protein to my diet could assist me in meeting some of the nutrients that I need daily.
The Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Protein describes its product in the following manner “Hydrolyzed collagen can help regulate the body’s metabolism by providing protein of low molecular weight that is quickly absorbed in the digestive tract.” What in the world does this mean? Basically it means that collagen protein is designed to help my body burn energy (calories), and quickly absorbs the needed nutrients and releases the unneeded nutrients. I would have to say that it did just that, my metabolism was working overtime! How can I tell? Well because my energy level was off the charts, I also found that I was not as bloated from common healthy foods that I enjoy such as garlic, onions and dairy products, which was an added bonus because I love “CHEESE” and not just as a cute word to say when I’m taking pictures.
Another added benefit is the versatility of the product. Collagen protein is unflavored so it can be added to almost any recipe or smoothie. I utilized it mostly in smoothies because they are apart of my daily routine. But, I did use it in some recipes such as red sauce for pasta and my vegan chili. You can also added it to your morning coffee, or daily tea. The sky is the limit with this product, and that is a big thumbs up in my book. My busy lifestyle is hard to incorporate products that require extra effort to use and this one is effortless. To add to the convenience Great Lakes Gelatin has packaged the product in both a container and individual stick packs.
Let's, get back to the energy component. Not only did I use the regular collagen protein, I also added the collagen endurance product. I can’t really speak to increase stamina as it relates to fitness but I can say that I had more energy to compete with my energetic 3 year old Peyton (not all workouts are done in the gym when you have a toddler to keep up with). Peyton's’ new love is gardening and if you know anything about gardening this is nothing but your basic squats. With that being said this provided a little joint discomfort especially in the the knees. So, I’ve noticed due to the daily consumption of the collagen products I have experienced less knee discomfort.
