Chocolate Coconut Collagen Peptides
A perfect combination of extra rich flavor from our organic cacao and a creamy taste from our organic coconut milk makes our Chocolate Coconut Collagen a tasty, delicious highly nourishing drink.
Our Chocolate Coconut Collagen is the perfect blend of three powerful superfoods with a pinch of debittered stevia extract to provide a hint of sweetness:
Grass-Fed Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptide Powder (bovine):
Our Grass-fed hydrolyzed collagen peptides are a true superfood, Collagen is a food that has been used for thousands of years for its nourishing and healing qualities. Collagen is the major component in skin, hair, nails, muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, gums, teeth, eyes, and blood vessels. One of the most common uses of collagen is for its possible support of joints, tendons, and cartilage health.
Organic Cacao - Extra Rich
Cacao, 'the food of the gods' has been traditionally used for centuries to boost energy and enhance mood. With over 300 identifiable chemical compounds, cacao remains one of the most complex and pleasurable foods on the planet.
Cacao contains one of the highest levels of antioxidants on the planet, exceeding that of red wine, green tea, and many other exotic fruits and vegetables. Our Heirloom Trinitario Extra Rich Organic Cacao powder is a source of the mineral magnesium and recent scientific studies have shown that cacao may assist with healthful blood flow to the heart, brain, and other organs. It has also been shown to support healthy blood glucose levels.
Fresh, Organic Coconut Milk
Our Organic Coconut Milk is chock full of goodness. Naturally packed with phytonutrients, healthy fats, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, we dry our coconut at a low temperature to preserve all the naturally occurring enzymes, nutrients, and flavor.
Recently, modern medical science has unlocked the secrets to coconut's amazing healing powers. The vast majority of fats and oils in our diets, whether they are saturated or unsaturated or come from animals or plants, are composed of long-chain fatty acids (LCFA). Coconut milk is unique in that it contains a type of fat called medium-chain triglycerides (MCT), which are oxidized by your body in a different manner than other fats.
It is unsweetened, unadulterated, and preservative-free. Plus, it’s delicious.
Organic Stevia Extract (Debittered)
Stevia is a natural herb native to South America. It is a small shrub-like perennial plant that belongs to the sunflower (Asteraceae) family. Stevia has been in wide use in South America, Japan, and many other parts of the world. Our Stevia Extract Powder has been enzyme-treated (debittered) to remove the bitter steviosides and improve the overall taste. This is a 100% natural herbal extract with nothing added.
Our grass-fed hydrolyzed collagen peptides are a true Superfood
This type of collagen and the healing qualities it provides us is very similar to the collagen we have in our own body. Our grass-fed hydrolyzed collagen peptides, provide us with both types I and type III collagen which is the major component in skin, hair, nails, muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, gums, teeth, eyes and blood vessels.
Hydrolyzed collagen is a true superstar food that offers a highly nourishing level of specific collagen peptides known for its ability to rebuild and repair. One of the more common reasons collagen is used to nourish and support a healthy body is that it may support joint, tendon, and cartilage health. Many of the popular supplements on the market today for joint health like glucosamine, chondroitin, and MSM are all naturally contained within the cartilage and bones of animals.
Support joint, tendon and cartilage health
Also, the amino acids which may help to form collagen in the human body like glycine, proline, and lysine are found in highly nourishing amounts in hydrolyzed collagen. One specific study showed that a diet rich in glycine improved both biochemical and biomechanical properties following inflammation of the Achilles tendon. It is thought that glycine has positive effects against toxicity and may support a healthy inflammation response. Glycine may restructure the collagen molecules faster due to its possible broad effects on the inflammation process. This study had 3 groups (control, inflammatory group, and glycine+inflammatory group). Higher concentrations of hydroxyproline and glycosaminoglycans were found in the glycine inflammation group. The biomechanical results indicated that the tendon was more resistant to loading to rupture upon treatment with a glycine diet in that specific group. The conclusion was drawn that “Glycine induced the synthesis of important components of the tendon”.
Another study (double-blind, placebo-controlled) was done at Penn state university that was conducted for 24 weeks showing the possible joint health benefits of ingesting 10 grams of collagen daily in active athletes. This study had 147 subjects (72 men and 75 women) where one group received formula with 10 grams of collagen and the other a xanthan. The study was looking at pain, mobility, and inflammation. At the completion of the study 5 parameters (joint pain while walking, at rest, standing, carrying objects, and lifting) showed significant changes in the group that took the collagen. The results of this study have implications for the use of collagen to support joint health and possibly reduce the risk of joint deterioration in a high-risk group. The results also suggest that athletes consuming collagen can prevent and support specific parameters (like pain) that may have a direct effect on the athlete’s performance.
A rich source of amino acids for possible tissue repair and rebuilding
Finally, because of collagen’s unique amino acid profile, this food is a wonderful way to possibly support gut health. The 18 amino acids found in collagen may help to support and repair an unhealthy or damaged gut lining. Amino acids may increase gastric acid secretion which in turn may help those with reflux issues. The amino acids lysine and proline have been shown to also possibly support and protect the stomach lining from injury. Finally, the superstar amino acid glutamine has been shown in many studies for its ability to possibly improve digestion and heal the gut. This amino acid is a staple for those who have been diagnosed with a condition known as “leaky gut”. Therefore the implications for its use in supporting a healthy immune and allergy response show great potential.
Some possible health benefits and traditional uses of Chocolate Coconut Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptide Powder (Bovine) may include:
- May support joint health
- May support a healthy inflammation response
- May support a healthy immune response
- May support a healthy allergy response
- May support gut health
- May support muscle and tissue recovery
- May support skin health
- Highly bioavailable source of amino acids and collagen types l and lll
Suggested Use: Mix 5 level tablespoons (30 grams) with 6-8 ounces of water or skim milk and thoroughly mix for 20-30 seconds. For best results, consume 1-2 servings daily, with one serving post-exercise. Can also be blended into your favorite smoothie.
