Protein is a macronutrient that your body needs to stay healthy and operate. When protein is digested and broken down, you are left with amino acids - the building blocks of protein. Amino acids help you break down food, grow and repair body tissue along with many other functions.
There are 9 essential amino acids and 11 non-essential amino acids. While both types are critical for your body, there is a key difference between the two:
Essential amino acids are those your body cannot produce or store by itself.
Non-essential amino acids are those that your body can create when given enough essential amino acids.
When choosing a collagen supplement, you must consider the form, the types and the sources.
Collagen supplements come in one of three forms - hydrolyzed, gelatin or raw. Hydrolyzed collagen is preferred, as this form is broken down into its component amino acids.
There are 26 different types of collagen, each with their own unique structures. Humans can benefit from Types I, II, III, IV and X.
Most collagen supplements are sourced from bovine (cows) due to their rich supplies of Types I and III. Other animal sources have their own unique individual benefits.
zuCOLLAGEN checks all the boxes. In one scoop you get the 5 key types of hydrolyzed collagen from 4 unique sources.

I have been taking this for almost a year and will not start my day without it! My skin is glowing at 57 and I feel GREAT!

I have been taking your collagen product for several months now. Overall I have received benefits and both my nails and skin. For several years I had problems with my fingernails splitting down the middle. After using your product my nails got much thicker and stronger. I also noticed a difference in my skin. I'm at the age where I have creepy skin. Taking the collagen on a regular basis greatly reduced the appearance of creepy skin. My skin seem to have more hydration and more elasticity.

I specifically got umzu collagen to improve my recovery time and improve my joint health...it has done just that! Before taking this product I was experiencing tendonitis in both my elbows... within 2 weeks my tendonitis disappeared and has not come back since. My shoulders and knees have improved too! Overall my joints are much healthier and stronger since using umzu collagen protein. Also chocolate brownie flavor is delicious!!
