Combining the antioxidant power of Pomegranate and Green Tea, the healing properties of Collagen+C™ and the absorption benefits of ionic minerals, the all-new Liquid Collagen+C™ provides the latest in total body health. Sweetened with Agave cactus nectar along with the perfect blend of pomegranate, cranberry, and elderberry, Liquid Collagen+C™ provides a deliciously mouth-watering and natural collagen supplement.
The word “collagen” is derived from kolla, the Greek word for glue. It is the strong fiber that weaves throughout the body for strength and support to literally hold the body together like glue would. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body with about 14 or so known types. As we age, the body’s ability to make collagen protein and its different complexes slows down. The Collagen Type I & III in Liquid Collagen+C™ helps to support collagen in tendons, ligaments, hair, skin, nails, and lean muscle for weight control.
Pomegranate’s ellagic acid and the green tea polyphenols (EGCG) provide a strong combination of antioxidants. Ellagic acid is one of the strongest antioxidants in the market today.
As a natural sweetener Agave nectar provides a lower glycemic index (about 46, in contrast with 58 for honey), mostly made up of fructose (90% fructose, 10% glucose). The closer to or higher than 100 the glycemic index is of a product (100 being 100% glucose), the faster it raises blood sugar level, generally a not-preferable reaction. Therefore, the organic agave in Liquid Collagen+C™ provides a natural healthy alternative to standard corn syrup or sugar sweeteners.
Ionic minerals have been shown to aid in nutrient absorption and mineral balance in the body aiding in the absorption of Liquid Collagen+C™.
