Collagen Powder + Why We Need It As We Age

 

So Collagen is the newest coolest thing lately & for good reason!

As a Vita Health  Ambassador I receive products and review ONLY the ones that I truly LOVE for you guys. So here’s why this is a GO-TO supplement for me.

What is Collagen?

Collagen is our main structural protein found in skin and other connective tissues, like hair + skin.

Why Do We Need It?

Our bodies have collagen, naturally ( hello baby youthful skin) but as we age collagen production begins to decline. Which is why we get wrinkles, hair gets brittle & joints ache, which is why it’s important to supplement:

  • Collagen can help you recover from injuries more quickly1 and can help improve your physical performance2.
  • Collagen can improve bone mineral density and reduce bone degradation3. Plus, there’s some new evidence to suggest that collagen can help to increase calcium absorption within the gut.
  • Collagen supports cardiovascular health by reducing arterial stiffness, which is a marker of cardiovascular disease in the elderly4. In other studies, collagen has been shown to prevent elevated blood pressure.
  • Collagen can provide anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
  • Collagen improves overall wellbeing and energy5.

Which Collagen + Brand Is Best + Why?

I got my Genuine Health Marine Clean Collagen tub in lemon lime & I was blown away with how delicious it tasted!! Normally I am not a fan of  “flavoured” powders but I swear to you, this is pure delicious with zero weird after taste!

My next tub is going to be unflavoured so I can mix it in with my morning coffee everyday!

Genuine Health Clean Collagen-  wanted it to be sustainable and consciously sourced, so we found clean collagen sources that were by-products of other industries that would otherwise be unused:

There are 2 types on the shelves:

  • clean collagen is sourced from pasture raised, grass-fed USDA cattle and is non-GMO, hormone-free and antibiotic free.<  Pineapple Berry or unflavoured >
  • marine clean collagen is sourced from wild-caught cold water fish in the North Atlantic, and is non-GMO.< Lemon lime or unflavoured >

A therapeutic dose of easily absorbed collagen in each serving ( a scoop ) . Each serving of clean collagen gives you 10 grams of easily absorbed collagen peptides!

SO easy to use – You just throw a scoop into your water bottle + go! or if having the unflavoured just add to your fav hot ( or cold beverage ). I also love to bake with the unflavoured collagen – I will be posting some amazing recipes soon!

My Hair and my skin have never felt better I must say this has been my top supplement that has visibly made changes in a month of taking it twice a day.  You guys know that I believe that beautiful skin + happy moods are made by whole food + clean ingredients so this Genuine Health Marine Collagen fits all my boxes!

I highly suggest we all take a collagen powder like this, try it + notice the amazing results not only on your skin but your joints, recovery etc!  Tag me in those super cute selfies 😉
