5 Steps To Ensure Your Best Collagen Experience
1. Choose The Best Product For You
Before you go about randomly selecting a canister, consider the benefits you're hoping to gain from it. For example, if you love working out, maybe our Vital Performance™ line is your best bet. Not big on flavor? Opt for our OG Collagen Peptides, or, for pescatarians, we offer our Marine Collagen. Since the possibilities are endless, simplify your decision by taking our collagen quiz!
2. No Clumping Allowed: The Best Way To Mix Your Collagen
Speaking to our collagen powders specifically, we recommend a "best-mixing" practice. If blending in cold liquid, start with filling your glass 1/3 of the way with lukewarm water, adding a scoop or two of collagen, then topping it off with cold liquid and mixing for the best sipping experience. Using ice? Follow the same steps, adding ice before topping off your collagen drink with cold water.
For hot drinks, we simply suggest thoroughly stirring in the powder until it's fully dissolved. (Pro tip: Reach for a frother for a foamy top-off to your Collagen Latte™ supplement). Enjoy!
3. Save More Time: How To Streamline Your Smoothie Routine
