Every day, you make the choice to do what’s best for you and your body — from a quick run to blow off a little steam to some mindful snacking for a hit of energy. And as you navigate your health and happiness, consider setting your bar even higher by adding a powerful ingredient combo into your diet: collagen and a quality source of protein. Here’s why this dynamic duo could be the newest addition to your lifestyle.

Collagen: What is it?

Kolla! It’s the Greek term for “glue” and it’s where the word collagen originates. And in essence, collagen is the glue that holds your muscles and organs together in one tidy package. It’s the most abundant protein in the human body and provides the building blocks for connective tissues including the skin, tendons, cartilage, and bones.

Collagen & your lifestyle

Natural production of this important protein declines with age, but you can increase your body’s stores by supplementing your diet with bovine or marine collagen. Collagen provides whole body benefits and supports the development of stronger bones, resilient joints and elastic, youthful-looking skin.

It takes two

On its own, collagen has a whole host of health benefits. But paired with a quality protein source like whey or soy? It’s a powerhouse combination. While collagen works to promote strong bones, flexible joints and hydrated skin, a quality protein source supports strong muscles, helps produce antibodies and aids in the repair of body tissues — ultimately building strength from within.

“We often hear about collagen’s role for beauty and skin health, but it’s actually an important component of healthy bones and joints as well,” says Abbey Sharp, registered dietitian. “SimplyProtein Collagen™ bars provide a unique combination of collagen peptides and protein to help promote strong muscles, bones and joints.”

Keeping it simple

When you’re looking to make the purposeful choice to refuel your body, turn to new SimplyProtein Collagen™ bars. They’re made from simple ingredients and contain protein (15 g) and a daily boost of collagen (5 g of collagen peptides sourced from grass-fed bovine!) all in one. Choose from two delicious flavours: Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Strawberry and Dark Chocolate Cherry Almond.
