There is no such thing as a vegan source of collagen for those wanting it in supplemental form. However, what you’re getting with the Vegan Amino+ is a blend of high quality vegan amino acids with the added push of elderberry extracts to increase your body’s own collagen production.
The benefits of collagen are both external and internal. A 12 week supplementation research study showed that women who drank a beverage mixed with a collagen supplement daily experienced increased skin hydration and reduction in depth of wrinkles. Women also report less skin dryness and a significant increase in skin elasticity. Beneath the surface, collagen improves bone density, lean mass gains, and reduces joint pain.
Vegan Amino+ also contains a specific beauty blend of Proline and Glycine which are amino acids, naturally used within the body to increase collagen production as well as improve lean muscle mass and aid in fat loss. Coupled with the insulin boosting effects of Elderberry, the body will be given clean and natural support for your goals.
Elderberry is another vital ingredient in our Vegan Aminos. It is more than just a natural source of immune-boosting nutrients, it’s been shown to provide further support to heart health, blood sugar levels, and natural collagen supplies. Within elderberries are powerful chemicals called anthocyanin which boost your immune system naturally.
In 2016, a placebo controlled study of air travelers was published in Nutrients showing the impact of elderberry on cold symptoms. Not only did those who used elderberry supplementation have fewer symptoms but they didn’t last as long as those using the placebo.
Another study founding in the Journal of International Medical Research showed that when starting elderberry extract supplementation within the first 48 hours of flu symptoms, the duration of those symptoms can be shortened by an average of four days!
Within Elderberries, there is a plant pigment called Anthocyanin, and it’s been shown to be anti-inflammatory and have antioxidant properties. Along with that there are bioflavonoids, antioxidants, and vitamin A. All of which also improve skin health, structure, and condition.
As you can see Vegan Aminos not only supports recovery and lean muscle mass but it also provides vast overall health benefits along with strengthening hair, skin and nails!
