Metabolism isn't just about burning energy; it's about converting energy from different sources into fuels to build and repair our tissue—such as muscle, brain, and tendons—and mobilise energy from body fat storage.
Growth Hormone for metabolic function
Certain types of collagen proteins are key factors in this metabolising process. Quality grass-fed collagen peptides contain amino acids that are precursors to the production of growth hormones, which stimulate muscle tissue repair and other metabolic functions that enhance weight loss efforts.
Some theories suggest that collagen supplementation could support weight management by promoting a feeling of fullness or satiety, which might lead to reduced calorie intake. Collagen protein is high in certain amino acids, such as glycine, which may have a role in appetite regulation. FLEXIBLE collagen has nineteen such amino acids in its makeup, including seven—glycine, proline, hydroxyproline (two kinds), aspartic acid, glutamic acid and arginine—that provide the essential nutrients necessary for the formation and release of growth hormone (GH) into the bloodstream to increase metabolism.
Sometimes ingesting certain foods do speed up your metabolism and aids fat loss. Collagen supplements can be used in conjunction with weight training or strenuous workouts. The combination of exercise and collagen supplements speeds up weight loss results.
How to improve absorption
Proteins alone won't invariably do the trick: to make sure your body can correctly use their benefit, a group of digestive enzymes known as bromelain can be ingested simultaneously. They function as proteases, which break down protein molecules into their building blocks. Once protein molecules are broken down, they are more easily absorbed across the small intestine. Bromelain allows your body to better digest and utilise the protein you eat efficiently. They're also involved in tissue repair by encouraging collagen synthesis.
Testing for better results
Protein quality is extremely important for muscle building as well as fat loss or weight management efforts. LEMAlab's collagen peptides from pasture-raised bovine hides have been tested by a third party European laboratory. The results show that FLEXIBLE collagen peptides contain the highest percentage of glycine and proline and no unwanted substances or additives such as sugars, fillers or sweeteners.
