Collagen, It’s More Than Your Morning Go To!

Today people are always on the go, making it difficult to focus on their own health and wellness. We know it can be overwhelming trying to discover the right supplement to help you with your needs and get key nutrients to fuel you throughout the day. BUT it might not be as hard as you imagined.


Great Lakes Gelatin Company offers quality products with clean, botanically sourced ingredients. As someone who is often on the go, I find it easy to add the collagen hydrolysate (unflavored and flavored) or Collagen Endurance Plus into my drinks. Whether I am adding the Vanilla Collagen to my morning coffee, mixing Collagen Endurance Plus in my Blender Bottle before a workout, or enjoying Chai Collagen in my afternoon tea, I know I am adding to my overall wellness. It’s simple, you mix in and enjoy!


When adding supplements into your wellness routine you want it to be convenient or it won’t become part of your daily routine. These products are versatile and can be added into most recipes, baked good, smoothies, drinks, and even your snacks.


The table below provides you with a breakdown of how you can incorporate Great Lakes Gelatin Company products into your wellness routine.
