As you all know, I’m all about keeping my skin healthy. What keeps the skin healthy, glowing, smooth, and supple is a diet rich in whole foods, H20, and in this case: collagen. If you haven’t pondered adding collagen to your diet before, take note, because you are about to have a major wellness moment.
Keep in mind that you are what you eat, simple as that. Eating a diet rich in healthy fats, quality and wild-caught proteins, and organic fruits and vegetables helps to ensure beautiful insides and outsides.
Collagen boosts the beauty-making process. Collagen is composed of amino acids, and is the main protein found in animal connective tissue (yes, us included). It is an essential building block for our skin and bodies. It is one of the most abundant proteins in the body and helps to make up skin, nails, organs, hair, tendons, ligaments, bones, cartilage, and sooooo much more.
In terms of skin particulary, it’s necessary for provididing elasticity, suppleness, and regeneration of our skin. Meaning what?? A YOUTHFUL AND WRINKLE FREE GLOW.
In terms of wellness, collagen is beneficial for joint health, hormone balance, healthy digestion and gut health, and boosting metabolism. It also contains quality protein that will keep you sated and keep muscles and tissues healthy.
Collagen is available as a tasteless/flavored powder, and can be taken in pill form if you prefer to. I add the powder form to my morning smoothie, coffee or tea. It dissolves easily in both hot and cold beverages.
Whatever collagen product you decide to buy make sure its a product that uses pasture-raised, grass fed animals that haven’t been given any yucky antibiotics or steroids!
I also add this MCT oil keto creamer to my coffee, and coconut oil, see why here Just go ahead & dip your life in COCONUT OIL!. MCT oil is one of the fastest sources of clean fuel for the body and brain. It boosts energy and metabolism, improves cognitive function and focus. Isn’t that why we choose to drink coffee in the first place?? I know I do. Coffee made healthy. Have a great day everyone. Xo.
