Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides

Hello all! A few weeks ago, Vital Proteins reached out to me about trying their collagen peptide powder. After looking into their products and reading about all the great benefits of collagen, I was so excited to try it out! Their collagen peptide powder is flavorless, odorless, can be mixed in hot or cold drinks (smoothies, infused waters, coffee, hot tea), and can even be used with baking! I've been mixing it with my coffee, since I drink it every morning anyway, and love it! The collagen peptide powder (per serving-2 scoops) is only 70 calories, has 18g of protein, 20g of collagen, is gluten free, dairy free, and paleo friendly. Below is some simple Q and A about this company and their collagen products!

What is Vital Proteins?
Vital Proteins is a wellness company rooted in collagen-based products. We carry an assortment of natural, organic, and sustainably sourced elixirs that support the body from within. Modern food processing and diet has removed collagen, a necessary protein from many people’s body’s, and our products offer a clean and high quality remedy.

Why Collagen?
It’s not hard to understand the many benefits of collagen. This type of protein provides the building blocks for your hair, skin, and nails and is therefore a vital part of anyone’s diet. Collagen helps protect your body from harsh temperatures, and other elements like wind or sun that can dry out your skin, leaving it dehydrated and flaky. We all know that no amount of makeup can hide dry skin, which is why it’s important to hydrate with drinkable collagen.
Below I’ve included more detailed information in regards to our collagen-based products as well as some photos. Please let me know if you need any more information, I’d be happy to help or answer any questions!

Beauty Benefits
1) Prevents the signs of aging in the skin – hydrating the skin and increasing moisture levels helps slow the onset of fine lines and wrinkles while keeping your skin ”glowy” year-round.

2) Reverse the signs of aging – beyond just preventing the signs of aging, collagen can actually make the skin appear younger by diminishing the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles, and improving firmness and elasticity.

3) Healthier digestion in two ways: 1. Collagen promotes the production of hydrochloric acid in our stomach vital to the breakdown of nutrients 2. Collagen helps to repair the sensitive lining of our stomach, small/large intestines. Improving digestion has also been connected to improving certain skin issues such as acne, eczema, and rosacea.

4) Strengthens hair and nails – Collagen protein is the foundation of your hair and nails. Consistent collagen consumers have noted that their hair and nails have grown faster, stronger, and more luscious. Often, this is the first and most noticeable benefit of intaking collagen on a daily basis.
