Active Lifestyle and Collagen: Phase 2 Collagen Formulas
We all receive two messages on nearly a daily basis:
- Just a small quantity of exercise can turn one’s health around.
- Obesity and chronic disease rates are rising.
After years of these messages, people are listening. A majority of people are now engaged in learning how to live an active lifestyle (make sure to download our Women’s Formulas Guide to see more active lifestyle formulas).
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, and protein is foundational to muscle health.
The Tie Between Collagen and Active Lifestyle Is Easy
So, what ingredients turn your collagen product into “active lifestyle?”
Here are a few ideas:
Adaptogens have been hot for many years and there is no slowing down. PeakO2® is an organic blend of six mushroom adaptogens that easily fits this lifestyle. Cordyceps, ashwagandha, and Rhodiola also fit well.
To enhance and complete the amino acid profile, adding essential amino acids like Amino9® are highly relevant to any active consumer trying to increase muscle mass and decrease fat mass (aka “improve body composition”).
Ketones are under-represented as an energy source, so “energy” is also an option.
Vega also messaged MCT as its “energy” source (ketones) when it added MCT to its “Protein Energy.”
The options are endless. Want to formulate an Active Lifestyle product? Talk to us! And don’t forget to download our Women’s Health Guide to see formulation ideas for women!
