There has been a ton of buzz about collagen lately! Is it really worth all of the hype?! Put simply, yes. Let’s talk about why and how you easily add it to your daily routine to reap the benefits!
What is collagen?
Most of us know collagen for its ability to give our skin elasticity and flexibility. But did you know it also helps our joints to function and helps connect all of the cells in our body. It supports hair and nail function which will help fight wrinkles, gut health, balancing blood sugar, supports your metabolism, aids in joint repair and can prevent cellulite!
Next question, how do I add more to my diet?!
Bone broth is an excellent source of collagen, but most of us don’t have time to whip that up daily! Instead, the just as effective alternate option is to add collagen powder to your daily routine.
The two brands I prefer are Vital Proteins or Great Lakes Collagen – both offer individual packets too which are great for on the go! You can easily add these to your smoothie or your coffee or tea!
Bonus: Collagen is better absorbed through digestion than topically (like by applying expensive skin care items!), so sip your self to healthier skin, hair and nails!
