Why I Take Collagen Every Day

Great query, Courtney! I began taking collagen on daily basis on the sturdy encouragement of the pelvic ground therapist I went to after Kierstyn was born. She stated that she believes each girl ought to take it, however it’s particularly good when recovering from childbirth and as you might be getting older (I flip 40 this yr!)

According to her, it’s not solely nice in your pores and skin, nails, and hair, but additionally in your ligaments. (There are quite a lot of articles on the significance of collagen and the way your physique’s manufacturing of it declines as you age. Here’s one article right here.)

In all honesty, I’ve not seen an enormous distinction by taking it, however my pelvic ground therapist made such a distinction in my restoration from being pregnant and childbirth that I’ll do no matter she tells me to do. Plus, I generally wrestle to get in sufficient protein on daily basis, so taking collagen is one further type of protein!

What Brand of Collagen I Take

My pelvic ground therapist beneficial that I get a bath of Vital Proteins collagen from Costco as she stated that’s a superb model and a superb value. However, Jesse did some analysis and determined that he felt just like the Trailhead model and the Ancient Nutrition model had been higher high quality, in order that’s what he’s been getting for me. (He buys it at an area diet store that he goes to commonly.)

I’m unsure on the worth of Vital Proteins from Costco (anybody know?). It’s costlier on Amazon ($43 for 28 servings) than what we pay for the Trailhead and Ancient Nutrition manufacturers on the diet store (about $35 for 40 servings). Collagen powder isn’t cheap, however it’s lower than $1 a day and I determine that’s a superb funding in my well being!

(If anybody has solutions on the place to get good offers on high quality collagen, positively tell us! I’m new to this and nonetheless studying!)

How I Take My Collagen

I’ve discovered that the best strategy to take collagen is to place a scoop in my tea on daily basis. I simply stick the tea bag and the inside track of collagen within the backside of the mug/tumbler and pour the recent water over it and stir. It utterly dissolves and is completely tasteless — as long as you combine it in sufficient liquid.

(I additionally add some sugar or honey and plenty of half and half, so possibly that helps masks the style? One time, I added collagen to just a bit little bit of decaf espresso I had left in a cup and it made the espresso style off since I blended a full scoop into only a 1/3 cup or so of liquid. So I’d suggest including it to a full mug!)

Many folks additionally add collagen to their espresso or smoothies and it ought to be tasteless that means, too!

There you could have it! It takes little or no effort and it makes me really feel like I’m doing one thing good for my well being on daily basis!

Have you taken collagen earlier than? I’d love to listen to your ideas and experiences and any suggestions you could have so far as manufacturers!
