This is my go to collagen powder! I am a runner and I use this collagen every day. I put one to two scoops in my coffee each morning (two if I am training, one if its off season). It has definitely helped my joints and tendons. My recovery time is shorter and the fatigue and soreness that comes from the repetitive pounding after a long run, is noticeably less. My nails, which used to be fairly brittle, are also strong and healthy. I have been using this product for over a year and half and I have to say, I am a believer! I will continue to use it as long as they make it!
There's a lot of hype centered around this collagen brand, but it's for good reason. The unflavored it my favorite. It dissolves effortlessly into my morning coffee and doesn't alter the flavor at all. It's also great for cooking to get some protein and collagen into your diet. I haven't noticed much in terms of skin changes, but my joints feel more lubricated and less squeaky.
I live for this product to ensure I get sufficient protein each day, but love reaping the beauty benefits (stronger nails, healthy hair, smoother skin) and much needed muscle recovery following Crossfit. While it is tasteless, I mix several scoops (it's 9g of protein per scoop!) with my fruit punch workout drink; it dissolves easily.
If I had a dollar for how many times I have talked about this product! I'm crazy about vital proteins collagen peptides. Here's the deal with collagen- is the most abundant protein in the body and our bodies break it down through pounding the pavement/tough workouts etc. so its so important to replenish it. Collagen is best absorbed internally, through the small intestine then sent into the bloodstream as opposed to topically. This way you are strengthening from the inside out which results in stronger bones, glowing hydrated skin, stronger hair/nails. I say all this because its been true for me! I add this into my bulletproof coffee every. single. morning. At home I have the big jug and on the road I bring the packets. In addition to all that good stuff, its 20 g of protein, grass fed, whole30 approved.
I’m definitely not the girl with the perfect green juice and detox diet. I don’t spend hours squeezing lemon juice into water, that’s just not for me. These Vital Proteins are the only thing has worked for me and I have been able to stick to in terms of a morning health drink. They’re fast proteins that help replace the collagens you lose as you age, so it helps keep nails and skin strong and healthy. What I love about it is that the product is completely tasteless, so I can add it into my morning coffee no problem. I put the collagens in my cup and pour the coffee on top (then I add some coconut oil, I call it my rockstar coffee). This is a routine that I know I can do and will still have my coffee in seconds, which is why it’s stuck with me for so long. When I’m running late and can’t craft the perfect avocado toast, this will get me through my first meeting. It’s wonderful.
