You may have been hearing all about collagen lately from TV to magazines to your favorite blogs. I started using collagen protein peptides about a year ago when to “upgrade” my coffee with coconut oil, butter and collagen. I have kicked the butter to the curb a little while ago as I do not follow a strict Ketosis diet; however; Vital Proteins collagen peptides and powders are here to stay. In my coffee I combine collagen peptides, coconut milk creamer, MCT oil and cinnamon into my Nutribullet to whip up into a protein packed, gut-healing energy drink to start every day.
Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides are sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine hides to ensure a natural, high quality, and sustainable source of this ancient nutrient. Vital proteins collagen peptides are flavorless, odorless, can be used in cooking, baking and can be dissolved in cold or hot temperatures. Throughout the next few months I will show you you how I incorporate the peptides into everything from soups to donuts (Yes, donuts!) and like I said before…C-O-F-F-E-E!
So what are the benefits?
1-Collagen Peptides improve hair, skin, nails, joints, tendons and ligaments. If you are above the age of thirty the odds of you experiencing tendon, ligament or joint related pain is very high. I struggle with tendonitis and after using collagen peptides consistently my flair ups have been reduced dramatically.
2-It is bioavailable, which means it, is available for absorption into the body immediately.
3-As stated above Vital Protein collagen peptides actually dissolve in hot or cold liquids for use in almost any of your kitchen creations. Vital Proteins also offers collagen “beauty water”, bone broth, whey protein, beauty greens , marine collagen and on-the-go packs to make consistency convenient.
Vital Proteins collagen peptides yield only 70 calories per serving and offer a whopping 18 grams of protein. Which is what I have been adding to my for a quick and easily post-workout pick-me-up.Over the next few months I will be sharing my favorite recipes using the collagen peptides, bone broth and marine collagen.
