Collagen peptides are some of the latest proteins with even more benefits than your typical whey. Quickly dissolvable in hot or cold liquids + tastless, you can add collagen peptides to anything [even your coffee or tea!] for other awesome health benefits —
1] GLOWING SKIN
Collagen peptides improve skin elasticity + help keep your skin soft + smooth with extra moisture. You may have heard of collagen injections for aging skin, ++ the powder form is just as helpful to your skin, but way easier to consume + without any needles! Especially in winter when the air is cold + dry, collagen peptides can bring back that glow to your skin : )
2] BALANCED HORMONES
Hormones are different for everyone, but collagen peptides typically can help balance your hormones. They cause the production of serotonin [mood stabilizer] + support healthy thyroid function. A healthy thyroid means an optimized metabolism!
3] STRONG BONES
Since bones are made of 90% collagen, these supplements boost bone health. Bone density can be an issue for women as we age, so with proper exercise + calcium, bone health should be a priority now. Some studies show that collagen peptides can help with joint pain, too!
4] FULL + HAPPY STOMACH
If some protein powders upset your stomach, collagen peptides might be better for you since they are a more simple protein supplement with fewer additives. Some studies even say that collagen peptides are more filling!
Of course, we always encourage you to eat your nutrients naturally found in food, but you might love collagen peptides for their versatility — especially when you need protein after a sweat sesh! Do you have a favorite kind? Share with us on Insta!
