There are so many simple ways to improve your health and making sure you get enough collagen in your daily diet is a great start towards this goal!
Collagen is the main structural protein found in much of your body including tendons, ligaments, muscles, bones, blood vessels, skin, hair, nails and your digestive system. Adequate collagen is needed for keeping all these structures strong.
The Standard American Diet depletes collagen levels and is lacking in this important building block. Your body cannot synthesize enough collagen on its own so you need to include collagen in your diet. As we age we can’t synthesize collagen efficiently and, starting at age 25, the collagen that your body does produce starts to decline.
According to decades of studies, adding collagen to your diet might have these health benefits:
*Collagen strengthens hair and nails helping them to grow faster and stronger and is usually the first most noticeable benefit of daily collagen intake.
*Collagen prevents the signs of aging by hydrating and increasing moisture levels in your skin. Collagen can actually make your skin appear younger by diminishing the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles, stretch marks and cellulite. It improves firmness and elasticity.
*Collagen helps to heal your gut. Your entire digestive tract is made of collagen so adding it to your diet helps by repairing the sensitive lining of your stomach and intestines. It also aids in better digestion because it promotes the production of hydrochloric acid in your stomach that is vital to the breakdown of nutrients. Improving digestion has also been connected to improving certain skin issues such as acne, eczema, and rosacea.
*Collagen supports the re-growth of joint tissue and can help relieve joint pain.
*Collagen helps to prevent bone loss (osteoporosis).
A simple and delicious way to consume collagen is with Vital Proteins Collagen Beauty Water. Just add one of their four delicious flavors to a glass of cold water: Strawberry Lemon, Lavender Lemon, Melon Mint and Cucumber Aloe. These flavors are from organic fruits, not from fake flavorings. If you are always on the go they have stick packs for your convenience.

Vital Proteins Collagen FAQ
What flavors do you suggest?
-I love the non-flavored because you can put it in anything! I usually put it in my coffee in the morning or a protein smoothie after a workout!! The lavender beauty water is so delicious and recently I have been putting it in my sleepy time tea or in a glass of water before bed! Lastly, I also love the vanilla coconut water flavor as well!
In which form should I purchase?
-The to-go packets are amazing if you are always out and about and want to drink it on the go. But if you are drinking it in the morning and evening at home the container will work just fine! I have both and use them both all the time!
What changes have you seen since you have been taking it?
My hair is growing longer and stronger than ever before, I always get comments on how great it looks! Got it cut on Saturday and even after trimming the dead ends my hair is still super long which I am so excited about! My nails have gotten stronger, they grow out quickly and are so strong! I used to get gel nails but I have not had to do that for a while! Lastly, I see an overall positive change to my skin as well, it is clearer and brighter.
