I’ve been using collagen for about a year and a half now and I can’t imagine my life without it! What is it, you ask? Collagen is a protein found in our body; some call it the “glue” that holds our body together! Over time our collagen production decreases, which results in a whole range of issues from bad skin to gut troubles. I first learned about collagen when friends of mine raved about its benefits and told me they were reaping the benefits by using Vital Proteins!
Collagen sounded exactly like what I needed. Sadly, I wasn’t blessed with the thickest hair by the hair gods, and years of curling, straightening, coloring, and more was making my hair so thin and damaged! My bad hair, compiled with my constant gut issues, made me the perfect candidate for collagen.
My first time trying Vital Proteins I was so amazed. A protein packed powdered packet (say that ten times fast), that had no flavor and I could simply add to my water and reap the benefits?! I was floored. After 2-3 weeks, I could already feel a difference!
So what are the BENEFITS?! Here are just a few!
- Hair and Nail Growth
- Heal Leaky Gut Syndrome
- Clears Skin
- Brain & Altzheimer’s Protection
- Ease Joint Pain
- Boosts Metabolism
- Helps Detox
Adding Vital Proteins to my water was easy, but once I became a smoothie-addict and realized I could use VP collagen as the protein source in my smoothies, my smoothie game was changed. Furthermore, Vital Proteins comes in a range of collagens, from animal to marine based, bone broth collagens to flavored collagens. VP has a collagen for every occasion! I recently started using Vital’s matcha collagen. I mean, why not give my latte a little protein kick?!
