No hooves, no horns, no hides. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the Human Body. Pollutants in water, air, and food deplete our collagen storehouse, making replenishment vital. Most collagen supplements come from the bones, skin, and connective tissue of animals, including cattle, fish, horses, pigs, or rabbits. Why ingest animal-derived collagen when your body is designed to generate its own? Sunwarrior offers the plant-based solution, tailored to boost your body’s inherent collagen production.
Sunwarrior now provides a collagen-building protein peptides supplement that is completely plant-based.
Collagen is a complex long-chain protein that accounts for over 30 percent of all of your body’s protein. Since the body produces collagen at a slower rate past the age of 35, having enough collagen is essential to your health especially as you age.
Collagen makes up your skin, bones, intestinal barrier, muscles, tendons, and joints. It acts like a glue for your entire body by keeping things pulled together and working properly. Backed by scientific research, collagen is best known for its benefits for smoother skin, stronger bones, and healthier joints.
Creating more collagen in the body consists of two approaches:
- The first approach is consuming sources of collagen protein that are found in animal products.
- The second, plant-based diet friendly approach is to give the body the nutrients it needs to create its own collagen.
There is discussion about other substances found in animal-based collagen as well. A study conducted by the Consumer Wellness Center found antibiotics, drugs, and chemicals in many animal-based collagen powders. Long-term consumption of these powders can lead to antibiotic resistance.
On the other hand, studies have pointed towards the effectiveness of the no hooves, no horns, and no hides alternative of using collagen building protein peptides to ensure that minimal processing takes place. With Sunwarrior’s doctor-formulated collagen building protein peptides, essential amino acids (Glycine, Proline, Hydroxyproline, Arginine, Alanine, Valine, Lysine), silica, biotin, hyaluronic acid, and other ingredients like Sea Buckthorn (high in vitamin C), you will have the ingredients your body needs to produce collagen on its own. Our bodies are coded to create collagen more efficiently than breaking down a foreign collagen anyways.
Since collagen is a protein that only comes from bones, hides, hooves, horns and other parts of animals, people who are plant-based (vegan) want a supplement that adheres to their values while providing them with the benefits of collagen. Or if you want to reduce your meat consumption or are concerned about the toxins that are prevalent in a lot of these powders, a collagen builder is a great alternative.
“We are excited to provide a more effective and sustainable plant-based alternative to collagen sourced from animals,” says Denley Fowlke, co-founder of Sunwarrior. “With the quality of ingredients and the science behind them, we believe we’ve created a product that will provide better results than the collagen products on the market.”
Sunwarrior’s plant-based collagen building protein peptides comes in two flavors; Tahitian Vanilla and Chocolate Fudge. It is non-GMO, soy-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, and dairy-free, with most ingredients being organic.
