This year, I made a commitment to work on my wellness. This may seem like a big claim — it could mean anything! — but as someone who loves reaching for ALL the wine and everything deep-fried and carb-loaded more than I should, this was a promise to myself to at least bring more balance into my day.
Enter: Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, my holy grail product that, at $25 for a 10 oz. canister, made it easy for me to stick to my goal of feeling my best. And with a five-star rating and 3,081 reviews, it’s safe to say I’m not alone in my thoughts. Curious to see what makes it so rave-worthy? Scroll on.
First, I should start off by saying I was immediately drawn to the benefits of collagen. An added boost to support healthy hair, skin, nails, bone and joint health** was something I was all about (anything for a good hair day, am I right?). Beyond that, this product is sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine hides (aka something I could feel good about putting in my body every day).
But what really won me over here was how easy it was to incorporate into my routine. Since it’s flavorless (a huge win for someone who always seems to change up her morning smoothie), I simply add two scoops to my drink without worrying about aftertaste. The Collagen Peptides are also easily soluble in hot and cold liquids, which makes it the perfect addition to any recipe. Plus, it contains 100% daily value of Vitamin C + 80mg of Hyaluronic Acid, so I can feel confident giving my body the TLC it needs in the moment (even if I’m not always on top of it.)
Take it from one longtime user, Instagram influencer Sammy Jane Eason, who can back me up on my feelings:"I use Collagen Peptides every day, either in my coffee or a smoothie and will cook with it occasionally! I started taking Vital Proteins products when I was postpartum with Isaac and my hair started falling out. My hair, nails and skin have never been in better condition.”
It’s safe to say this blue tub is now stationed 24/7 next to my blender, where my hubby and I can easily maintain our 2-scoop-a-day habit. It may not be a big change, but it’s something, and I feel good things from it. So that said, friends, I suggest joining in on the fun with the other couple thousand of us, and running out to grab your own.
