Product Spotlight: CSE Collagen Powder

WHY COLLAGEN?

You know we never sacrifice quality, efficacy or taste, and just like every other product we formulate, our CSE Super Collagen is much more than your run-of-the-mill collagen powder. We wanted ours to be the best anti-aging formula on the planet and... we think we nailed it! A single serving of our Super Collagen Mix daily may help to:

  • Provide Age Defiance
  • Beautify & Firm Skin
  • Strengthen Tendons & Ligaments
  • Improve Joint Health

After perfecting the formula, we wrapped this anti-aging powerhouse in all-natural, deliciously dreamy flaves that will have you craving this refreshing drink every single day. The hardest part? Choosing between them! Our lineup includes fan-favorite Peach Mango, plus new Cucumber Lime, Blackberry Lemonade, and Blue Hawaii!

These flaves have all been formulated with 100% grass-fed, hydrolyzed collagen types I, II & III. Plus, they are all available in single-serving 10-packs and 30-serving bags for the ultimate convenience! As if that wasn’t enough, we rounded out the roster with 30-serving bags of our Unflavored Collagen. 

To make our collagens that much better, we added the powerhouse carotenoid, Lutein! Lutein isn't just for eyes. It helps promote cardiovascular health and better oxygen to cell transfer. In turn, healthy cells may help to prevent cancers in the cell/blood. Lutein acts as a pseudo antioxidant and helps support and strengthen the walls of each cell. Everything about these collagen formulas supports our best efforts to keep us young, active and living life to the fullest! It’s the best complement to your favorite juices, smoothies, oatmeal, pancakes, protein shakes, and more!

The cherry on top? ALL of our Super Collagen Mixes are great for strengthening active and aging joints and beautifying skin, hair and nails. 🙌🏼 😃

HOW TO USE

Just add one serving to 8-12oz of water, a smoothie, or a protein shake! Mix well and enjoy! Makes an ideal post-workout shake when combined with CSE protein powder!

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PROTEIN POWDER & COLLAGEN

Our whey protein and super collagen mixes come from different sources, which means they have different amino acid profiles that serve different functions. Collagen is not a complete protein source because it’s lacking the essential amino acid, Tryptophan. Per FDA regulations, only those protein sources that are complete can be counted toward your DV%. As JJ says, "Our whey protein is absolutely a complete source of protein and, frankly, touts the best amino acid profile on the planet. They can be used together all day long but I would never use collagen to supplement my protein intake." Whey protein is designed to help build muscle and aid in recovery, while collagen builds healthy bones, 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
