The Benefits of Collagen

I'm always looking for new ways to up my wellness game, and one product I've added into my daily mix in the past few months is collagen. This is a word I hadn't even heard of until about six months ago. But it turns out it plays a key role in our bodies! Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies and is a building block for healthy joints, bones, tendons, and skin. Plus, if you have an active lifestyle, it provides protein and amino acids for better muscle recovery and stronger joints.

I kept hearing about how I needed to be getting more collagen into my diet but felt overwhelmed about where to start. That's why I'm so excited that Vital Proteins reached out to me a few months ago. I'm a huge fan of Vital Proteins because their collagen peptides are super clean — they have only ONE ingredient. Plus they are sustainably sourced and Whole30-approved. Per serving, you get 20 grams of collagen and 18 grams of protein!

 
 

I love the unflavored collagen because I can add it to my coffee or a smoothie and I don't even notice it. Seriously, I drink my coffee black and so it would majorly bother me if this changed the taste or texture of my morning coffee. But I add two heaping scoops of this and it's almost unnoticeable. The best way I can describe it is that you have an awareness of it, but it doesn't change the taste at all, plus it totally dissolves so you don't see it either.

If you're looking to support a healthy and strong musculoskeletal system plus add some protein to your diet, I strongly recommend trying out collagen peptides. And you can't complain about the added beauty benefits!

You can find these collagen peptides in canisters, single-serving packs, or capsules here.
