Benefits of Upgraded Collagen

  • Fast tissue repair – Upgraded Collagen provides the particular proteins that ensure cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of skin, cartilage and bone.2
  • Greater flexibility and mobility – Upgraded Collagen makes the main building blocks of connective tissue more bioavailable and better absorbed into joints for greater flexibility and mobility.2
  • Stronger bones and joints – Upgraded Collagen supports strong, heavier, denser bones and is an excellent source of proline and glycine, two building blocks of cartilage that are essential for refueling after exercise and sports.2
  • Revitalized skin – Upgraded Collagen promotes skin hydration, reduces the number of fine lines, prevents deeper wrinkles, and maintains the suppleness of your skin from the inside-out.3
  • Weight loss – Upgraded Collagen (97% pure protein) helps with weight loss by delivering quick satiation of hunger.4
  • Build Muscle – Upgraded Collagen supports muscle building by facilitating the synthesis of creatine in the body.5
  • Reduce aging – Upgraded Collagen replaces the necessary proteins that diminish and breakdown from aging.6
  • Deeper Sleep – Upgraded Collagen taken at bedtime deepens sleep, provides arginine to stimulate growth hormone release, and provides nutrients necessary to perform tissue repair while sleeping.
  • Brain Function – Upgraded Collagen provides glycine, a neurotransmitter involved in motor and sensory pathways as well as ATP synthesis.

Amino Acids

A blend of essential amino acids to repair muscle — perfect for those looking to build and maintain lean muscle mass.*

Sports Therapy Gilbert AZ



Amino acids help promote muscle recovery, support metabolism, and can increase and maintain lean muscle mass and strength, especially as you age.* Unlike other popular amino acid formulas, Aminos provides branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) in addition to other essential amino acids shown to help increase your body’s natural ability to rebuild, repair, and slow the breakdown of muscle protein.* Two scoops of Aminos provides the amount of leucine (an amino acid important to recovery) necessary to stimulate muscle repair.*

Aminos can be consumed alone or blended with other performance boosters like Catalyte Isotonic or carbohydrates.

Aminos is sweetened with stevia and contains no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners.

Aminos is NSF Certified for Sport.

Vitamin D + K

Sports Therapy Gilbert Az

Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones, immune function, and cardiovascular health.* It has also been shown to help maintain lean muscle mass.* Even with these benefits, vitamin D is one of the most common vitamin deficiencies. Sun exposure is a great source of vitamin D. However, for most people living in the Northern Hemisphere (above 37 degrees latitude), relying on sun exposure alone might not be practical. Vitamin D is also difficult to get from food, making smart vitamin D supplementation more important than ever.

We recommend taking vitamin D3 in combination with vitamin K2, which helps with cell formation, bone health, and maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system.* Combined, these two nutrients have been shown to better support these systems.*

Dose: 1000 IU / 25 pounds of body weight.*

Time Taken: Morning


This is almost as important as vitamin D, and almost as under appreciated.  Magnesium is used in over 300 enzymatic processes, including all of those involved in ATP production.  It’s also vital for proper transcription of DNA and RNA.

Magnesium deficiency is a serious problem.  Symptoms include heart arrhythmias, tachycardia, headaches, muscle cramps, nausea, metabolic syndrome, migraines, and pretty much everything else you don’t want.  It’s also associated with cardiovascular disease diabetes, asthma, anxiety disorders, and PMS.

Almost all Americans are deficient in magnesium.  The majority of people don’t meet the RDA, which is already too low.  Due to soil depletion and poor farming practices, it’s almost impossible to get enough magnesium from your diet.  Without a doubt – everyone should supplement with magnesium.

Dose: 600-800mg / day

Forms: Citrate, malate, glycinate, threonate, or orotate

Time Taken: before bedtime.




Creatine supplementation in the elderly may lead to increased muscle mass, endurance and performance, and those who undertake resistance training may show further improvements with creatine supplementation.

However, for elderly subjects who do not partake in resistance training, creatine supplementation offers significant improvements in increasing muscular mass and strength,and increasing their quality of life, whilst these benefits are lower on the whole than those who undertake regular resistance training.
