What are Collagen Peptides?
Why use collagen as our main source of protein? Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, providing us with a significant amount of health benefits.
Made with Chocolate Keto Collagen Protein powder, these bars are the perfect pre or post-workout snack. Our collagen peptides are sourced from 100% grass-fed cattle to not only benefit your health but also the health and sustainability of our environment as well.
The Benefits of Collagen
Some of the many benefits of incorporating collagen into your diet include:
- Developing and maintaining a healthy gut
- Improving skin, hair, teeth and nail health
- Improving liver and cardiovascular health
- Reducing joint pain and degeneration
- Increasing muscle mass, metabolism and energy output
Collagen is different than other proteins due to its abundance of amino acids. These amino acids help with tissue growth of hair, nail and skin while increasing joint, ligament and tendon strength [*][*]. Additionally, collagen is easier on your stomach than other protein supplements such as whey or casein that have been known to cause gut distress and bloating in many people.
MCT Oil Benefits
There is also five grams of MCT Oil powder in each serving of this recipe. Unlike other brands, our MCT Oil has zero fillers and is 100% pure MCT Oil made from coconuts. Some benefits of MCT Oil include:
- Easy and fast digestion for immediate and clean energy
- Burned by the body as fuel — not stored as fat
- Improve gut and immune health
- Contain a multitude of antioxidant properties
