Product Spotlight: CSE Collagen Powder
Just like every other product we formulate, our CSE Super Collagen is much more than your run-of-the-mill collagen powder. 100% grass-fed, hydrolyzed collagen types I, II & III now included in both the flavored and unflavored Super Collagens! We also brought the calories down on this formula without sacrificing quality, efficacy or taste! The cherry on top is one of JJ’s favorite new additions to these formulas... SUPEROXIDE DISMUTASE! Say that 5 times fast! So what is SOD? Superoxide dismutase is an enzyme that helps break down potentially harmful oxygen molecules in cells. This may prevent damage to cells and tissues, especially post-workout when free radicals and oxidative stress are more prevalent. We also added hyaluronic acid, msm, lycopene, CoQ10, biotin, zinc and vitamins D&E! We wanted this formula to be the best anti-aging formula on the planet and... we think we nailed it! After perfecting the formula, we wrapped all of these anti-aging powerhouses in an all-natural peach mango powder that will have you craving this refreshing drink every single day. Collagen is great for active and aging joints, skin, hair and nails. 🙌🏼 😃
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH COLLAGEN
“I love experimenting with my own body to see what works, what doesn’t and how I can improve. Here’s what I learned from my latest “self-experimentation.” I wanted to see what effect going off all supplements had on my bloodwork over the course of 6 weeks. I was especially interested in the kidney function markers in my blood like creatinine and BUN. For 6 weeks, I didn’t consume even a single serving of protein powder, including our collagen powder.
My results after 6 weeks... my bloodwork got worse! In order to fill the gaps in protein (normally filled by our CSE Protein Powders), I had to turn to other sources. Suffice it to say that my kidneys didn’t love all of the other sources and had a harder time breaking these sources down into usable amino acids.
The result that was most intriguing to me, though, didn’t come from my blood panel. Over the course of the 6 weeks with no supplements, including our super collagen, my knees absolutely fell apart! I didn’t attribute my knees falling apart to the fact that I stopped taking a scoop of our collagen each day as part of my typical post-workout routine. I just thought the years of abuse and miles I have put on them were finally “catching up.” I literally complained about my knees every day! I felt injured and sore and... well... OLD! After my 6-week experiment was over I reintroduced my usual supplements back into my life and 10 days later I remember thinking to myself, “MY KNEES!!!!” They don’t hurt. Not even a little bit! I went from feeling like I was 120 years old and in desperate need of a knee replacement to feeling like I had 18-year-old legs again! It has seriously changed my life! I’m not planning on going another day without getting my scoop of CSE Super Collagen in!” - JJ Peterson
“For about 6 months now I have had constant joint pain in my hands. The pain got so bad, some days I could barely hold my phone. I had been taking our Super Collagen Mix about twice a week for over a year and it wasn’t doing me any good in that regard. It wasn’t until I started taking the collagen EVERY single day that I saw life-changing results! I use my hands a lot (like most of us do 😆). I love weight lifting, I do a lot of work on my phone and on the computer, plus all the mom life duties of cooking, cleaning and picking up my kids. I started to panic about feeling arthritis type symptoms in my hands at such a young age. Once I started taking our Super Collagen Mix consistency everyday for about 3-4 weeks, the pain went away COMPLETELY! I’m still in shock. I stand behind this product 100% and know for myself of its healing abilities. I will never go another day without it!” - Erika Peterson
WHEN TO TAKE IT
Looking for the PERFECT post-workout shake? After a tough workout, you want to get fuel to taxed muscles in a hurry to help with recovery. You want a quality, fast-absorbing source of protein, paired with carbs to replenish glycogen stores to drive amino acids from the protein into each cell. Fat slows the absorption time of these nutrients so having a post-workout shake with zero fat is not a bad idea! Plus, you get all the added benefits of collagen in a shake that tastes like… well… perfection.
“The best time to get it in, and the way I do it each day, is first thing in the morning right after my workout. I’m hooked on all the CSE Post-Workout shakes found in the different meal plans! You’ve got to try all of them!” - JJ Peterson

Type II Collagen: Collagen is a soft globular, structural protein. Because of this fact, it plays an extremely important role in our overall health and quality of life. Collagen production in the body decreases as we age which causes skin to sag, tendons to weaken and bones to lose density. Replenishing collagen stores is key in the fight against aging. Supplementing with a quality hydrolyzed collagen also stimulates the chondrocytes to produce more collagen. Win! Win! So, of the 16 different types of collagen, why did we choose Type II? Great question! Type II is THE ONLY type of collagen that remains a collagen in the biochemical (digestive & absorption) process. It is absorbed directly into the skin and joint spaces as a collagen protein and goes right to work on building that particular space back up. Yes, there are other types of collagen that are beneficial but Type II gives you the most bang for your buck in age defiance, bar none! Bovine (cow) derived peptide form of type II collagen. Tests for ZERO estrogen. We only utilize type II because it’s the only “type” of collagen that remains in tact through the digestive process. It isn’t broken down into aminos and built back into a collagen. It remains a collagen peptide and is immediately absorbed into the joint spaces and soft tissues going to work on keeping you young.
