Lavender Living: The Benefits of Collagen
Are you taking a collagen supplement regularly? If you aren’t, you need to be. And here’s why.
Natural collagen production slows down with age, so getting extra collagen through supplementation is essential. This miracle supplement can do many important things, including:
Help promote skin elasticity and help reverse signs of aging
Strengthen hair and nails
Ease joint pain
Help build muscle and burn fat
Promote a healthy gut
Improve the health of the liver
Keep the heart healthy by strengthening the arteries
We challenge you to grab some collagen peptides and start incorporating them into your daily routine. Here are a few ways you can add collagen peptides to your diet:
Mix the collagen powder with your morning coffee or tea (The collagen we use is tasteless and dissolves like a dream)
Add the collagen to your protein shakes or juices (if juicing is your thing)
Add the collagen powder to your oatmeal in the mornings
Bake it into your muffins or other baked goods
Mix it into your pancakes or waffles before cooking
Add it into your soup
Jocelyn and I both use this brand of collagen peptides. We love it because, not only is it tasteless and dissolves easily, it is also made from pasture-raised, grass-fed cows. It’s gluten free, paleo and keto friendly, dairy free, and non-GMO. Plus, get 10% off your order with code LAVENDER10 and FREE shipping in the US! You can also take advantage of their current ‘subscribe and save’ promotion and get an additional 10 percent off for 3 months, as well as a free Ox coffee mug. You can cancel any time!
Note: Collagen should not be used in place of a protein powder as collagen peptides is not a complete protein. This means it only contains 8 of the 9 essential amino acids that the body can’t produce on its own. Protein powder is considered a complete protein because it contains all 9 essential amino acids. Jocelyn and I both use a Bone Broth protein powder because of the added benefits.
