Collagen Coffee Supplement
Why You'll Love it: Rather than solely being stimulated by caffeine alone, this Collagen Coffee supplement is made with adaptogens – ingredients like mushroom powder and maca root – that support the body's natural ability to boost energy and improve focus.**
How To Use It: "This has become my go-to morning beverage! I love that it tastes like coffee but has less caffeine than an average cup. The best part is that I still get natural energy from cordyceps and maca root, which are known for their ability to boost natural energy,**" says Peláez. "A cup of this in the morning also helps me to power through my workday since lion's mane and chaga boost mood and improve focus.**"
Simply combine 1 scoop to 8 fl. oz. of hot water, stir & enjoy.
Collagen Tea Supplement
Why You'll Love it: With a soothing tea blend of collagen and adaptogens – like ashwagandha root extract and reishi powder – your evening routine has never looked so dreamy. Just add 2 scoops of our Collagen Tea supplement to hot liquid for a blissed-out evening.**
How To Use It: "When I need a little help winding down at night, I like to make myself a nighttime beverage with our Collagen Tea supplement," says Peláez. "The combination of chamomile extract powder, ashwagandha root extract and reishi powder not only help me relax but also support me in getting a restful night's sleep.**"
Simply combine 2 scoops to 8 fl. oz. of hot water, stir & enjoy.
