The Real Scoop
on Collagen Supplementation

Presented by
Jake Kocinski, RD, and Ayla Barmmer, MS, RD

What to expect

Collagen is one of the most important substances in the body, comprising 30% of total protein. As we age, the biosynthesis of collagen begins to decline. In addition, intakes of dietary collagen are typically low throughout a person’s lifetime. These factors contribute to an overall reduction in collagen, which is associated with loosening and thinning of the skin, reduction of joint flexibility, and a gradual decrease in joint mobility and functionality. Collagen supplementation is a viable option to counter the effects of declining collagen.

Join Ayla Barmmer and Jake Kocinski for a deep dive into collagen science. Focus with be given to:

• Examining the uniqueness of bioactive collagen peptides

• Reviewing related scientific literature

• Learning how to incorporate collagen peptides into patient treatment plans

The presenters will also discuss Vital Proteins® Professional, a clinically proven bioactive collagen peptide line of products. This new line was developed by a team of leading functional nutrition experts and is available exclusively through healthcare professionals.
