Elite Series Collagen & Glucosamine drink mix has been formulated with the finest quality Collagen and Glucosamine and has added vitamin and minerals.

It is present in bones, joints, muscle and other types of connective tissue amd makes up approximately 33% of our body mass.

Collagen is the most abundant structural, natural protein in the body.

It is perhaps fair to say that Collagen is best recognised as an anti-ageing treatment to help combat fine lines and wrinkles that are caused when the collagen levels in our skin depletes with age.  The body loses 1.5% every year. By the age of 40, we have lost 30% of our collagen levels

It is believed that the addition of Collagen gives the skin a more radiant, youthful appearance and it also contributes to and supports healthy hair, skin and nails.

Research shows that 10g of Collagen Hydrolisate (per serving) is more beneficial in supporting the anti-ageing process

However, it has far more benefits than just ant-ageing. Collagen is needed for healthy joints, physical reilience and the ability to recover from injuries by protecting the joints and muscles.

Glucosamine

Glucosamine is a naturally occurring substance present in joints, cartilage and joint fluid.

Whilst not clinically proven, Glucosamine is strongly linked to aid and benefit joint care. Although the effectiveness of glucosamine needs further research, results from anecdotal reports makes glucosamine a popular natural supplement for those wanting to provide extra support for their joints.

Per Serving, Direct Nutrition Collagen & Glucosamine drink mix contains;

10g Collagen Hydrolisate

800mg Glucosamine HCL

The added Vitamins and Minerals have been included for their specific benefits and capability to work in conjunction with the Collagen and Glucosamine. In particular;

Vitamin A; this vitamin is involved in the maintenance of skin, lack of which often leads to symptoms such as dry skin.

Vitamin C; Vitamin C is involved in the formation of collagen, a lack of which has a direct effect on collagen levels and leads to poor appearance of the skin.

Vitamin D; our bodies are unable to make this vitamin. It is commonly known as the ‘sun vitamin’ as it is synthesised when sunlight meets the skin. Vitamin D is most known for its role in bone health and absorption of calcium and phosphorous.

Vitamin E; Helps protect cells from damage and is considered to have an antioxidant
