You may have noticed collagen popping up all over the place these days while being raved about as one of the current superfoods to get your hands on.
But is it really necessary to supplement with collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. It makes up our connective tissue and can be found in bone, ligaments, tendons, muscle, and skin.
But collagen supplementation can be advantageous as our natural production begins to decline as we age. Adding collagen to your diet helps to support healthy hair, skin, nails, and joints.
Now you may be wondering, how do I find a quality product that actually works when there are so many to choose from?
When it comes to collagen or any supplement for that matter, you want to make sure you are getting it from a reliable source.
Vital Proteins® provides just that – reliability, transparency, and quality guaranteed.
The Vital difference
Since the launch of Vital Proteins in 2013, the company has always placed an emphasis on the importance of high-quality sourcing for every one of their products. Their bovine products are sourced from grass-fed and pasture-raised cattle and their marine products from wild-caught non-GMO fish.
With nothing to hide, Vital Proteins believes that the consumer has the right to know what they put into their bodies, which is why they are so open about how they manufacture their products. From quality animal sourcing to non-toxic procedures and packaging, every step of the process is carefully monitored to meet their high-quality standards.
Along with quality sourcing, Vital Proteins is free of any artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, and preservatives to ensure you get your hands on the cleanest product with whole food ingredients that actually do the job.
Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer™
Looking for a dairy-free creamy alternative for your cuppa Joe? We got just the thing!
Vital Proteins' collection of Collagen Creamers™ is made with organic coconut milk powder plus 10g of collagen peptides sourced from grass-fed and pasture-raised cows. This creamer is a great source of MCTs, which can naturally help to boost energy and brain performance.
Free from dairy, soy, carrageenan, gluten, artificial sweeteners, and any added sugars, their creamers are available in coconut, vanilla, or chocolate flavors.
Collagen that has been broken down through the process of hydrolysis into smaller chains of amino acids are called collagen peptides.
This form of collagen is easier for your stomach to break down and absorb into the bloodstream. This also makes the powder more easily soluble in hot or cold water for you to enjoy in your coffee, water, juice, or smoothie!
Bovine collagen powder can help promote healthier skin, hair, and nails, as well as bone and joint health, and muscle synthesis.**
Vital Proteins included the addition of vitamin C and hyaluronic acid in this formula because it helps to promote the body's own production of collagen and also benefits glowing skin.
