FROG FUEL was created by two former Navy SEALs, both of whom would prefer your knees not chronically hurt by the time you reach age 40. This liquid collagen protein shot puts standard whey protein to shame, and it’s one of the latest brands to enable GovX ID discounts for military and first responder shoppers.
Read on for a look at this American-made, veteran-owned brand seeking to up-end how we all think about the crowded protein supplement market.
What is collagen and why should I care?
Collagen is the second most abundant substance in your body, second only to water. It’s found in nearly every tissue in your body. Collagen not only helps build and maintain muscle but also repairs and maintains ligaments and tendons along with hair, skin, nails, bones, and many other tissues.
Any smart athlete knows that ligaments and tendons are much more important than muscle mass and that whey or plant-based proteins aren’t nearly as powerful as collagen protein.
Unlike whey and plant protein, which are foreign to the body, your body inherently knows how to use collagen. So, when a collagen supplement like FROG FUEL is introduced into your system, your body instantly knows what to do with it and distributes it where it’s needed most. And because FROG FUEL is nano-hydrolyzed into half the digestible size of your stomach pores, it’s designed to completely digest in just 15 minutes and deliver the collagen even faster.
Wait, nano-hydro what?
Glad you asked. Time to break out a metaphor.
Think of two trees—one that’s just been chopped down and stripped of its bark, and the other one that’s already been turned into 2x4s. Both trees have been “hydrolyzed” into wood, but only one is ready to be turned into a building.
If it’s too big, your body must break it down into a digestible size, which produces a lot of waste. (Think of the sawdust generated when you cut a log.) FROG FUEL is the 2×4 of the protein world, already broken down into a useful building block for your body, and doesn’t need to be broken down into smaller pieces that exits your body as waste.
A word about amino acids.
“Our protein is fortified to be a complete protein with 22 amino acids,” says Army veteran Aaron Saari of FROG FUEL. “Most of the collagen proteins on the market only have 18 amino acids because collagen is naturally an INCOMPLETE protein. Competitors will make it sound great that they have 18 amino acids, but that’s like focusing on how great the floor is in a house with no roof.”
But what are the benefits of those four additional amino acids? FROG FUEL customers report faster recovery from injuries, healing substantially faster than even their doctors expected. This is why FROG FUEL collagen protein is trusted by over 4,000 medical facilities worldwide and by elite athletes who care about strength, longevity, and injury prevention and recovery.
“Competitors will make it sound great that they have 18 amino acids, but that’s like focusing on how great the floor is in a house with no roof.”
FROG FUEL is a veteran-owned brand that values integrity and taking care of their customers. “It’s not uncommon for you to call or email us and find one of the founders answering your questions,” writes Aaron. “Everyone in this company takes our products every day because we believe in the science, and we value the benefits.”
“If you want to keep your body young or repair the damage you’ve done to it over the years, you need to be taking collagen. That’s why we take it every day and why you should too.”
