Aloe Gorgeous: Vegan Collagen Booster - Peanut Butter
Collagen powder typically comes from the skin and connective tissues of cows (and fish in the case of marine collagen). However, ingesting another animal's collagen doesn't guarantee your body will use it. Your body needs the right amino acids, vitamins, polysaccharides, and nutrients to create collagen that will affect your joints and skin.
While some of those nutrients are contained in animal collagen, not all of them are, meaning your body will have to reroute vitamins and minerals from elsewhere to help you create collagen. Ora Organics created Aloe Gorgeous to give you a superior alternative to animal-based collagen. Ora Organics is formulated to help support your body’s natural production of collagen.
Aloe Gorgeous is an Organic and Plant-based Collagen-boosting Powder packed with aloe vera, protein, silica, and vitamins C and E. If collagen were a vanilla-flavored cocktail, these would be the ingredients that would help you create it (and your body would be the mixer)!
How does it help?
Ora Organics collagen-boosting powder contains aloe vera, pea protein, silica from bamboo, vitamin C from acerola cherry, and vitamin E from sunflowers. Combined, these ingredients are the perfect mix to support your body's natural collagen-making ability.
Aloe Vera is a polysaccharide which plays a huge role in bringing together amino acids in the body to help produce collagen. Collagen is formed in strands (assemblies) and studies show polysaccharides can potentially help create larger, stronger collagen assemblies - think of it as scaffolding to help quickly build longer, stronger collagen strands.
Amino acids are essential to collagen production and come from protein. We’ve included 3g of organic pea protein in every serving because it’s naturally high in Lysine - an essential amino acid used in the creation of collagen.
Vitamin C is great for immune support, but also helps to regulate the synthesis of collagen, while vitamin E has been shown to help protect against collagen cross-linking and lipid peroxidation - chemical events in the body that are both linked to the aging of the skin.
Ora Organics recommends adding one scoop of Aloe Gorgeous to your favorite smoothie, plant-based milk, or a warm (but not too hot) coffee and other drinks.
When adding to drinks: For best results, add 1 scoop of Aloe Gorgeous to a cup and then add a dash of hot water and mix thoroughly to create a paste. Then add in plant-based milk or your choice of beverage and stir thoroughly!
