Designs for Health Whole Body Collagen
Whole Body Collagen contains a unique blend of three patented collagen peptides supported by clinical research showing their efficacy for supporting collagen production, bone strength, joint health and integrity, skin elasticity and more.
Collagen is a special type of protein that accounts for as much as 30% of the body’s total protein. In particular, it’s a primary structural component of connective tissue. The amino acid composition of dietary collagens are very similar to those in human collagens, making dietary collagen peptides ideal for supporting normal body collagen turnover and renewal.
Whole Body Collagen can be incorporated into shakes, smoothies, and other foods and beverages, making it a convenient way to ensure adequate intake of collagen’s unique amino acids.
ADDITIONAL BENEFITS: Maintenance or increase in lean mass. One study reported improved muscle strength and increase in fat free mass (FFM) by 4.2 kg after a 12-week supplementation with 15g/day of an optimized collagen peptide in conjunction with resistance exercise, more than that achieved by exercise alone.
This study also reported a reduction in fat mass of 5.4 kg, which was likely due to an increase in metabolic rate. Another study found that a 50% substitution of dietary protein with a blend of collagen peptides preserved FFM in older sedentary menopausal women, while the same substitution with whey protein caused a slight loss in FFM. An additional study has shown that supplementation with a blend of collagen peptides may reduce menopause-related obesity.
