EHP Labs Aqua Collagen
Aqua Collagen is a light and refreshing protein drink to support whole body health and provide superior hydration. Hydrolyzed bovine collagen peptides and coconut water help boost whole body collagen production, increase protein intake and rehydrate the body from the inside-out!
Collagen production declines by 1.0-1.5% each year from the age of 25. To offset natural collagen losses, high dose bovine collagen found in Aqua Collagen enhances the structure and function of the gut, joints, ligaments, tendons and skin.
Many people fail to consume the recommended water intake and are chronically dehydrated from not meeting their requirements. Coconut water powder in Aqua Collagen contains natural electrolytes for the ultimate hydration support. Optimal hydration is vital for enhanced exercise performance, weight loss and muscle gain goals.
Consuming enough protein can be challenging, especially when aiming to have a high-protein diet. Containing 10g of dairy-free protein per scoop, Aqua Collagen is a light and refreshing way to consume more protein.
Aqua Collagen comes in three fruity flavors: Fijian Pineapple, Watermelon Wow & Raspberry Refresh. Unlike some protein supplements that can feel heavy, Aqua Collagen is light and refreshing, making it the perfect supplement to take post-workout or enjoy at any time of day. For best results, we recommend having 2 scoops per day.
PROMOTE GUT, SKIN, NAIL AND HAIR HEALTH
From the age of 25 collagen starts to decline by up to 1.5% each year. This leads to visible signs of aging, diminished gut health and weakened hair and nails. Regular high intensity exercise temporarily increases stress hormone production, depleting natural collagen stores more rapidly. To offset the decline in collagen, supplementing can be very advantageous. Aqua Collagen contains a high dose (22,000mg per 2 scoops) of bovine collagen. Bovine collagen contains type 1 and 3 collagen peptides, which are the types specific to improving gut health, skin aging. Collagen peptides have been demonstrated to promote healthy aging by improving skin elasticity and the recovery of lost cartilage tissue. Additionally, coconut water in Aqua Collagen contains vitamin C, which plays an essential role in collagen synthesis and improves hallmark signs of skin aging.
OPTIMIZE HYDRATION TO IMPROVE PERFORMANCE AND RECOVERY
Dehydration causes fatigue, headaches, muscle aches and is one of the top ten most common medical diagnoses. Each 2 scoop serving of Aqua Collagen has 1000 mg of coconut water powder which contains natural electrolytes including potassium, magnesium, calcium and sodium to assist with hydration and other bodily functions. Exhaustive exercise can generate excessive reactive oxygen species (ROS), resulting in oxidative stress-related tissue damages and impaired muscle contractility. High antioxidant properties of coconut water have been shown to aid in neutralizing reactive oxygen species production. This helps combat muscle fatigue and improves exercise performance and recovery.
INCREASE JOINT, MUSCLE AND BONE STRENGTH
Collagen is a well-established source of functional peptides which also has a positive impact on joint, ligament and muscle health. It is the building block of joint, muscle and bone mass, and plays an essential role in increasing strength and optimizing recovery, particularly after injury. Numerous studies have shown collagen peptide supplementation can reduce activity-related joint pain, increase bone mineral density and strengthen tendons and ligaments. Significant Amounts of Functional Collagen Peptides Can Be Incorporated in the Diet While Maintaining Indispensable Amino Acid Balance.
ASSIST WITH WEIGHT MANAGEMENT
Collagen protein consumption varies depending on dietary habits, with a recent study showing most participants were below the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA). Research also shows that protein is best absorbed when consumed in moderate doses spaced out throughout the day.
Supplementing with collagen peptides increases total daily protein intake, improves the dietary amino acid balance and is advantageous for both fat loss and muscle building. Findings show that protein intakes higher than the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) promote weight management and adaptation to exercise. Higher protein intakes may help prevent the loss of muscle mass, assist with appetite regulation and improve satiety. This can lead to greater reductions in fat mass compared with standard protein diets, serving as a successful strategy in the prevention and treatment of obesity. Given the critical role protein plays in stimulating protein synthesis rates after exercise, meeting daily protein targets can also help maximize performance and increase lean muscle mass to assist with weight management.
Aqua Collagen is a calorie-friendly way to help hit your protein targets, with a 2 scoop serving containing only 80 calories with 20g of protein. This makes Aqua Collagen an easy way to boost protein intake in between meals or after exercise for optimal fat loss and weight management benefits.
Mix 1 to 2 scoops Aqua Collagen with 6-12 fl oz (175-350ml) cold water in a shaker and consume immediately.
