I wanted to share my latest obsession for a little bit of STRENGTH …Collagen!
YES! Girls (and guys), pick up on this one because it’s worth EVERY additive scoop!
I picked up my first by accident. I was doing my normal grocery shopping at my local Sprouts and this jar of Collagen Protein Coffee Creamer was misplaced next to my normal protein powder… immediately I thought “hmmm”, picked it up and started reading the MANY benefits!
- Skin, Hair, & Nail Support
- Healthy, Joints, & Bones
- Digestive Health
- Youthful Appearance
- 10g of protein
- No sugar & paleo friendly
- Gluten & Dairy Free
Not going to lie, as soon as I saw PROTEIN I was sold. It’s like having my cake and eating it too! In the sense of instead of having my coffee (because I’m one of those: a complete KILLER SCARY ZOMBIE until AFTER my first cup of Joe!)
Before this, my normal routine was two cups of coffee. One before the kids wake, then another on the way to school. After I’d follow with a protein shake because by then I would be STARVING to fill my body with the necessities it needs … NUTRITION!
By the time I dropped the kids off, I would be racing to make my first of TWO restrooms stops during my commute to work like a pregnant momma in her third trimester! Now that I’ve discovered this, it fills me as well! It’s the same amount of protein as my shake! So I DO get my cake and eat it too, Vanilla flavor actually, my favorite! I even get to skip the scary time wasted bathroom stops on the way to work 😉 Double bonus!
I’ve tried more than this brand but THIS is favorite when it comes to taste and price point:
I LOVE this: I now get it straight to my door every month for a little less than I’d spend at my local market. It comes in Vanilla and Coconut. I’m not a coconut kind of girl, and I’m pretty basic so I prefer Vanilla. I LOVE it! Normally I’m a black coffee, no additive, medium roast girl. I don’t like sugar unless it’s in the form of ‘made by Willy Wonka’! ;)-
My point is JUMP on the trend friends! I’ve read that we (ESP women) starting in our twenties begin to lose a drastic percent of collagen. As we age, the percentage just increases. Collagen helps our skin texture, strength, and appearance. It not only aids our skin BUT so much of our inner cell production! The list of benefits I’ve read are endless!
I’ve been using this additive now for over 5 weeks and I CAN SEE the results! I visually SEE and FEEL results! Before I’d wake my bones would ache. I’ve basically been a giant since I was 10, growing so quickly and so young, that my bones and joints just ache in the morning. That’s primarily why I wanted to give it a try. But not only do my joints FEEL better, I can SEE results in my skin! Heck, it may be even why my hair is growing back so quickly!
It’s worth a shot, Friends! Give it a few week trial to see the difference. I wanted to share this awesome find because I think it’s worth every penny and ounce of Joe! I give it a positive Health and Beauty STRENGTH review!
Hope you find positive results as well. Me …I’m a believer:
Collagen does the body good!
There it is friends, my first Strength Tip!
