As I inch closer to 30, I’m beginning to take into account what I can do to help my body stay healthy in the long run, much more seriously. One of those ways is via a simple morning routine, of adding Collagen Peptides to my coffee. It’s tasteless, easy to mix and over time has shown some serious benefits, that give me all the more reason to stick with the routine.
Whenever I post about my Collagen Peptides on Instagram, I receive a variety of questions on the product. Does it actually work? Do I see a noticeable difference? Does it taste like anything? So I figured why not have a blog post that answers all your questions in one place, and shares my top three reasons to love Collagen Peptides.
I’m not a huge supplement or vitamin taker, I’ll order protein supplements in my smoothies, but it’s my hubby who has always been in the know when it comes to vitamins and supplements.
About a year ago, a Whole Foods employee told me about Vital Proteins, and how adding the supplement to a smoothie or coffee has been beneficial in a variety of ways. She mentioned she liked my manicure, and we got to talking about how we love Shellac, but hate the effects – weak and brittle nails after two weeks of wear. She suggested I try Collagen Peptides, as she did, to help with her nail and hair growth, amongst other things.
To be honest, I was a bit hesitant after looking at the price. I didn’t want to invest in a supplement powder that’s expensive, to not be sure if I’d see the same results as her. Fortunately Vital Proteins makes single serving packs, so I decided to pick up a few and give them a try.I’m pretty picky about things I add to my coffee/smoothies/etc., usually I can taste a flavor, but surprisingly with Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, I could not. The powder mixed easily into my coffee, without any lingering residue or flavor. This post is not sponsored by Vital Proteins, but it’s the Collagen Peptide mix that I use and like the best.
In case you didn’t know, Collagen is a key components to our bodies connective tissues. It’s one of the most abundant proteins within our bodies and provides the necessary infrastructure of the body’s musculoskeletal system. Unfortunately, due to modern modern-day food processing techniques, Collagen is more often than not, stripped over everyday diets and foods.
Everything I read, said the results would take time, so I decided to add it to my morning coffee three times a week for two weeks. There weren’t immediate results, but after two weeks, I definitely noticed my skin was a bit softer and my nails were growing a little faster. Enough to keep me into adding it to my routine for weeks and months to come.
Fast forward to today, I add Collagen Peptides to my coffee about 2-3 times per week and I am definitely seeing a positive difference in my skin, hair and nail growth, plus joint health. I used to feel so sore and unable to move after tough workouts, but now that I added Collagen Peptides to my weekly routine, I feel the soreness, but can proceed everyday without feeling like I need to stay in bed all day thanks to the fatigue. It’s definitely helped my muscles rebound quicker than usual.
Still not sold? Here are my top three reasons to love Collagen Peptides!1 // It’s an easy supplement to add to your regular morning routine
I could never jump into the juicing or cleanse trends because they were a big change from my regular routine. With the powder Collagen Peptides, I just add a scoop to my morning coffee and that’s it. I can’t taste it, but know that my cup of coffee is offering me a number of benefits. With the positive results I’ve been seeing after introducing Vital Proteins into my diet, it’s a no brainer for me to continue using it!2 // Stay full longer! Collagen Peptides features a considerable amount of protein per serving
I’m not a big breakfast eater. I love eating breakfast out at restaurants, but don’t enjoy making it for myself. Collagen Peptides has been a game changer in terms of helping me stay fuller, longer. Along with my usual piece of Peanut Butter toast or yogurt and granola, a scoop of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides in my coffee, adds 18g of protein to my morning intake. It’s truly helped me stay on a regular eating schedule and not feel hungry before lunchtime.3 // Keep your digestive tract on track
My family has a history of some gut issues, so when I was presented with an easy solution, thanks to Collagen Peptides, I jumped on it! Research shows that because our digestive tracts are made up of similar amino acids found within Collagen Peptides, our digestive tracts can benefit from the addition of Collagen Peptides to our routine. It definitely helps to keep my regular and doesn’t upset my stomach. I’d say that’s a win, win. Although my gut issues aren’t completely resolved, I’ve definitely seen a noticeable improvement after adding Collagen Peptides into my weekly routine.
