Immunity is high on most people’s agenda for good reason. How well we sleep, our diet and our exercise patterns impact our immunity. When we have a virus or an infection, our body uses up nutrients much more rapidly, leaving us depleted and fatigued.Glutamine, which is part of the structure of collagen, is essential for our immune system. In fact, the rate of glutamine consumption by immune cells is higher than any other substance in both health and disease.
Our True Collagen, Cacao + Collagen and our Coffee + Collagen will all provide your hungry immune cells with the glutamine they need to function at their best.You can further support your immune system with a daily supply of vitamin D3 and buffered vitamin C, found in our Vegan Collagyn collection for optimal daily wellbeing.
