3 Collagen Recipes For A Healthy, Glowing You

Uncategorized

As we get older, our natural collagen levels start depleting, which is why so many people are turning to collagen supplements for glowing skin and healthy hair.

Collagen powder supplements are proteins that have been broken down into peptides, or short chains of amino acids, that can be absorbed by the body and used as building blocks for skin, hair, nails, joints, bones, and your gut lining.* Essentially: These are full-body wonders. Adding a collagen powder to your diet can be as simple as swirling a few scoops into your morning coffee. (It dissolves into any liquid and often comes in flavourless varieties so it doesn’t clash with your go-to drink.) But that’s not the only way you can consume it: Collagen powders are really easy to mix into other smoothies, snacks, and even full-blown meals. Here are seven fun, unique recipes to up your intake—plus these options are loaded with other skin-loving nutrients, like antioxidants and other inflammation fighters. Glow on.
