Introducing Le-Vel’s new hydrolyzed collagen gel

Introducing Le-Vel’s New Hydrolyzed Collagen Gel:  FORM
 
Weight Management
Supports Lean Muscle Mass
Post-Exercise Recovery & Repair
Supports Strong Bones & Joints
Supports Firm & Healthy Skin
 
Le-Vel’s FORM is the world’s only sequentially absorbed Collagen Protein.  Collagen is the second most common substance found in the human body, the first being water.  It’s estimated that one third of all protein in the body is collagen protein.  Collagen is the foundation for strong connective tissues.  Aging causes collagen protein to break down, weakening the connective tissues.  Not only does the collagen break down, but the body loses its ability to produce more.  It’s believed that this process begins around the age of twenty.  The sequential delivery system allows the body to start absorbing the collagen protein in the mouth, and continues through the digestive system, so absorption is truly maximized.
 
Free FORM?

Have you even seen faces or shapes in the clouds? At this year’s Child in Nature Symposium our children will be hiking Oatland’s trails with Naturalist Michelle Kelly and will be looking for hidden faces in trees and then accentuate them by sculpting on the tree with air dry clay and natural objects found on site. The Jacks of the wood will be peeping through the forest after we have hiked through! We will end our hike at our new mud kitchen, located in the garden, and will whip up some imaginary recipes of hickory pies and acorn stews.
