Why use Collagen?
Collagen peptides are a natural part of the human body comprising about 70% of human skin. Collagen peptides also make up parts of hair, bone matrix and joints. However, after age 21, the body’s natural collagen production begins to slow. For this reason, it's important to supplement our natural production of collagen peptides. I LOVE Further Food's collagen options because it is clean, grass-fed collagen, is tasteless and mixes into ANYTHING.
What is collagen?
Collagen peptides are a mix of specific peptides of different length with a high abundance of certain amino acids. Different peptides can provide different health benefits – everything from nutricosmetic purposes to increasing athletic ability. Collagen can increase skin elasticity, reduce cellulite, improve gut health and digestion, strengthen bones and joints, has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, stabilizes blood sugar and controls appetite, to name a few.

As you all know, one of my main recommendations for a healthy diet and lots of energy, is to spread your protein consumption through out the day. Because of the way our body absorbs protein, this helps us maximize absorption. Which is why it's SO important to have a good, clean protein powder that is easy on the tummy and the taste buds. I recommend Nuzest!
