August '23 was the launch of the long sought-after LiveGood Collagen Peptides. So many LiveGood members and customers champing at the bit in anticipation of this. They knew it was coming and could hardly wait.
Now it's here and we are excited and happy.
That's what we are talking about today. It's on the website so there's some bullet points to highlight, and the LiveGood product formulators Ryan and Lisa did a live showcase on the product.
These two put their hearts and soul into building their cherished LiveGood Collagen Peptides product so naturally they were in their prime sharing it with all the LiveGood field.
We believe you are going to enjoy this too.
What Is Collagen?
Okay ... first things first. Before we go into all the awesomeness of the LiveGood Collagen, and what sets it apart from all the other collagens in the marketplace, let's first establish just what in the heck Collagen even is.
Quite simply, Collagen is the most abundant, or prominent, protein in the body. This is what I learned from the video they did (featured below). We all have it!
They also call it the glue that holds everything together and that it's everywhere throughout the body. It's in our hair, our skin, our nails, our bones, our joints, and the list goes on.
So yes, this is why they call it the most abundant protein that we already have in our bodies.
Why Do We Need A LiveGood Collagen Supplement?
So we know collagen protein is everywhere in our bodies ... however .. we lose it as we age. That is part of the aging process and a lot to do with why our appearances and our physical attributes diminish.
And this loss of such an important protein begins in our 20's. We can notice it in the elasticity of our skin, new wrinkles, sore joints, and all the other things that happen which we simply call "getting old".
So anything we can do to get some of the protein back, and to slow down the rate at which we are losing our collagen. As you can imagine this is something wanted and needed and is a hot, trending product for people of all ages.
Our heart and arteries even become negatively affected with this loss of the collagen protein. Coupled with the ever increasing inflammation we all deal with, this is becomes a double whammy.
What Makes The LiveGood Collagen Peptides Superior To Others We See?
This is the million dollar question right? What's so great and different about the LiveGood Collagen Peptide supplement?
So LiveGood went with a bovine collagen type 1 and type 3. There are many different types known and to delve into that would have everyone's eyes glazed over. I'll just say the Bovine 1 and 3 are the most studies and arguably the most effective. Over 90% of collagen proteins are type 1.
As far as the bovine they source the highest quality available. It's grass fed, pasture raised, and grass finished.
The LiveGood Collagen Peptides is also intentionally unflavored so it mixes well with food for easy consumption if desired.
But most noteworthy are the unique and special ingredients added to the LiveGood collagen. Purposefully selected to compliment and even enhance the many amazing benefits that collagen already provides.

What Are The Extra Ingredients Added to LiveGood Collagen Peptides?
These specifically chosen added ingredients make the LiveGood Collagen truly one-of-a-kind. Literally not seen like this in any other Collagen product, LiveGood is first to market. It's powerful.
So it goes like this here: Bioactives with Polynol, Velositol, ApresFlex, and Hyaluronic Acid. These are patented ingredients.
Using patented ingredients is noteworthy because they are well studied. Those studies and the supporting literature are available to see for anyone. This is perfect for those who need to dive deeper.
These are the ingredients that makes the LiveGood Collagen Peptides product exclusive. This separates it from all the others in the marketplace and makes it unique to LiveGood.
LiveGood Collagen Added Ingredient #1: Polynol
Polynol was added to help fight chronic inflammation and to help boost cognitive function and performance. Also for maintaining blood glucose and to help slow the aging process, and even for weight loss!
Ryan Goodkin, LiveGood product developer, says this about Polynol: Two key elements that really caught my attention early on, is it inhibits elastase and collagenates. Now those two enzymes are responsible for breaking down collagen and elastin. And so half the battle is preventing that.
Which brought this response from Lisa (LiveGood product educator): So you've got the collagen in there to help replace the collagen, but then we also have an ingredient in there to stop the breakdown.
Polynol™ is a natural polyphenol rich sugarcane extract that possesses bioactive properties.
LiveGood Collagen Added Ingredient #2: Velositol
Works great for increased muscle growth, faster recovery, and lean body mass. It can be found in a lot of the body building products.
The Nutrition21 website states this ...Velositol® is patented complex of Amylopectin and Chromium that, when used with protein is designed to increase strength and power by accelerating and boosting muscle protein synthesis (MPS), a key to enhanced muscle growth, lean body mass, and quicker muscle recovery".
Muscle and Fitness website says the following ...

Lisa Goodkin, LiveGood Director of Product Education Says This:
