Group Buy: Collagen
This weekend we will have our Group Buy for Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen!
All currently available products (as of today) will be listed on the market site tomorrow for ordering.
We order collagen every 2 months. One can of collagen is a 2 month supply for 1 person. Please keep this in mind when ordering.
The prices include our discounted group buy price, shipping, fees and taxes.
THIS WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PICK UP THIS TUESDAY. I will place our group order on Monday and expect it will be available for pick up within 2 weeks.
This is a prepaid pre-order, so payment is expected this Tuesday. If you are only ordering Green Pasture or Great Lakes products this week, please drop a check in the mail or online payment on the co-op market website.
If you are new to the co-op and/or Collagen, below is some information that discusses the benefits of this amazing products.
Gelatin (also known as cooked collagen) has wonderful anti-inflammatory and anti-aging qualities, as it helps to fill in the missing amino acids (the building blocks of proteins) in the standard American diet. This is a completely different from the jiggly gelatin product most of us grew up eating as kids.
Homemade bone broth is chock full of gelatin and very nutrient dense but Great Lakes Gelatin- Collagen is a convenient way to get gelatin consistently into your diet.
What is Collagen Hydrolysate?
Hydrolyzed Collagen is the unique combination of amino acids in concentrated levels that promotes rapid re-production of blood cells for healing and conditioning over other proteins especially for bone and joint health care. This low molecular weight protein is easily digested for healthy enrichment in minutes after ingestion. It will not congeal because it has been hydrolyzed for quick assimilation and improved hydration to the connective tissue. Collagen is important to nitrogen balance, now considered an anti-aging product as it supports age related cartilage damage, and collagen loss. source: http://greatlakesgelatin.com/)
How do I use this product?
You can mix it in drinks, shakes, smoothies, or add a tablespoon to your favorite recipe to give it an anti-inflammatory protein boost. It will dissolve in cold liquids very easily.
How Much Do You Need?
Recommended dosage: Take one rounded tablespoon (10-12 g) in the morning, and the same amount before going to bed in the late evening which will help reduce appetite. This product has a low molecular weight so it will dissolve in cold, warm, or hot liquids.
Important Note: Remember not to get too carried away with gelatin. Adding too much too quickly can cause digestive issues: bloating, loss of appetite, stomach ache are just a few side effects.
It’s important to remember that more gelatin is not always better, especially if you are adding it to your diet for the first time.
Gelatin should be used in addition to a nutrient dense diet and not to replace real food like homemade bone broths and grass fed meats.
It is also really important to take this daily. You will see maximum results if you include it in your daily routine.
I have heard dozens of success stories from co-op members and my own family members. Please feel free to email me your personal testimony on your experience with this product!
