Guys, I am SO excited to introduce you all to my new best friend.
He keeps my hair, skin & nails looking awesome. Improves my digestion and keeps my joints strong and healthy.
Basically he is kind of awesome.
So without further a do.
Guys, meet Collagen. Collagen meet my readers.
Before I get too far into this, I want you guys to know that this post in not sponsored. This is 100% realness. Actually, even my sponsored posts are 100% realness as well but that’s a different story. Did Vital Proteins send me their product to try? Yeah, but I get sent a lot of stuff everyday and I only choose a small handful of things to share with you guys.
Think of me as your guinea pig that only wants to share the best with you.
Anyways, back to Collagen. What exactly is it?
Collagen is basically what keeps your skin looking young. It’s was makes your skin feel full and elastic. When you turn 25, every year after that you will start to loose 1% of your collagen. Then once you go through menopause, you start to loose more towards 30% each year, which is what causes your skin to sag.
The good news though, is that by adding Collagen to your daily diet, just like you would protein or fiber, you can prevent your body from losing its collagen. It’s basically the most natural way to prevent aging.
In addition to keeping you looking young, a few more benefits of collagen are glowing skin, joint health, bone strength, increased athletic performance, deeper sleep and a healthier gut.
Running to pick up Collagen yet – lol?
I’ve know a few people who swear by collagen for years and now I can honestly say I am one of them.
There are a lot of products on the market for Collagen, but the reason I like Vital Proteins is because there is really only one ingredient in it – Collagen. Other brands tend to have fillers and artificial sweeteners, but not this one.
There isn’t a taste to it (actually pretty tasteless) and it absorbs really quickly in either hot or cold water. I personally like to add it to my afternoon tea around 3:00 p.m. or in my morning smoothie!
Each serving also has 10 (g) of protein in it so that’s another win!
Have you guys tried adding Collagen into your diet? What have you thought about it so far??
