Collagen that you drink? I had the same reaction at first. Until I realized that there were real benefits to consuming collagen. In fact, collagen used to be a staple in our ancestor's diets!
What's so great about it?
Collagen contains vital nutrients that are the building blocks of our hair, skin, nails, bones and joints.
Collagen can protecting soft tissues from degrading in athletes and therefore help to prevent injury.
Collagen may help to increase bone mass.
Collagen also helps to improve skin elasticity.
Why am I so crazy about it?
The Collagen Peptides from Vital Proteins have truly become one of my favorite parts of eating breakfast. They are simply grass-fed, pasture raised bovine hide collagen peptides. Nothing artificial about them! They also are a very fine powdery texture that blends seamlessly into anything and they have no taste! They also pack a whooping 18g of protein per serving.
I typically enjoy mine at breakfast mixed into coconut yogurt and topped with granola and fruit.
