Chapper’s, the last two weeks we’ve had Gold Collagen on test.
It is the bestselling anti-ageing supplement in Boots (www.boots.com) , which of course we were in interested in, but perhaps we are were more intrigued as to how it can support a Chapper who spends 4+ days per week in the gym.
Active Gold Collagen has has a combination of L-Carnitine, Glucosamine and Hydrolysed Collagen , all proven ingredients that a regular gym-chapper will be familiar with. The result was taken alongside a low-carb Whey Protein, we found that recovery times were noticeably increased.
During the second week, our Guinea Pig stopped taking his Glucosamine supps to see if Active Gold Collagen could act as a replacement and again the results were positive. There were no joint aches after training, including a heavy squat session, notorious for joint aches and pain.
One thing to keep in mind is that it’s a functional product & some people may find it hard to stomach at first, but stick with it as the benefits are clear.
Glucosime is found naturally in the body and helps the repair of cartilage and other body tissue. The production of Glucosime within your body slows with age, so for the older Chapper this is worth keeping in mind.
L-Carnitine – A vitamin like nutrient that helps turn fat to energy. It also helps muscle recover.
Hydrolysed Collagen – Helps with skin firmness and tightness.
Other ingredients in the formula include Zinc, VB3, B6, VC, VD, VB12.
