Happy mid-week everyone! As we get closer to the new year, I’m starting to plan my New Year’s Resolutions and I couldn’t be more excited! This year being healthier is going to be my top priority. I want to start things off right by drinking more water, eating better, going to the gym more often and including collagen into my diet!
A couple weeks ago, I decided that I was going to start taking better care of myself and began incorporating Vital Proteins Marine Collagen into my drinks – it’s odorless, tasteless, and completely dissolves in hot or cold liquid! Collagen is vital for our health and is the basic building block of skin, hair, and nails. Unfortunately, this natural, healthy protein has been eliminated from our diets due to modern food processing. Lucky for us, Vital Proteins, a wellness company rooted in collagen-based products, carries a selection of natural, whole-food-based, powder form elixirs that are truly amazing for hair skin and nails.
Vital Proteins’ ingestible formulas are made from sustainably sourced ingredients. They are also minimally processed, Non GMO, free of additives and fillers; clean and high quality. Their collagen products have numerous health benefits – helping to nourish the skin for a supple and radiant complexion, while also promoting stronger and faster growth in hair and nails too.
Here are four beauty benefits of collagen: 1. Prevent the onset signs of aging – By increasing skin moisture levels, the onset of lines and wrinkles diminish. 2. Reverse the signs of aging – Not only does collagen prevent the signs of aging, it can actually reverse fine lines, deep wrinkles and reduced elasticity. 3. Improves digestion in two ways: 1) collagen supports hydrochloric acid production in our stomach, which makes digestion easier. 2) Collagen helps to repair the sensitive lining and infrastructure of our stomach, and small/large intestines. Improving digestion has also been known to improve skin issues such as acne, eczema and rosacea. 4. Strengthens hair and nails – Collagen protein provides the foundation for healthy hair and nails.
I’m currently taking their Marine Collagen which is sourced from wild-caught, Non-GMO Snapper (fish). I love that this product contains only one ingredient – collagen protein. And added bonus, it contains 11 grams of protein per serving!
As someone who is always on the go, I can really appreciate Vital Proteins’ collagen stick packs. I pack a few of them in my purse every morning and add them into my drinks throughout the day. Also, because they are tasteless and dissolve easily, you can add them to almost everything! This is the first collagen supplement I’ve ever taken and I’ve noticed that my skin has cleared up, is more moisturized and that my hair has been growing!
It’s only been a few weeks since I’ve started drinking Vital Proteins and it has made such a difference already. Vital Proteins’ products are a simple and effective way to include collagen into your everyday lifestyle. I wish I knew about this sooner, but nonetheless I’m excited to see continual results! What is your New Year’s Resolution?
