As longtime Vital Proteins® fans already know, incorporating collagen into your routine is a pretty seamless process. And while we like to think our products are pretty magical – they’re tasty, easy to use and contain zero added sugars – we’ll be the first ones to admit that achieving collagen’s amazing benefits (hello, healthy hair, skin, nails and joints**) goes beyond one scoop. It takes regular use of our wide array of products – whether that means adding our Original Collagen Peptides to your morning smoothie or elevating your ice cream with Matcha Collagen.
First things first: Let’s talk collagen. As the body’s most abundant protein, collagen helps give structure to our hair, skin, nails, bones, ligaments and tendons. Thanks to collagen, we’re better able to move, bend and stretch. Collagen is also behind helping hair shine, skin glow and nails stay strong.** Around the age of 25, however, our body’s natural collagen production begins to decline.
This is why we recommend supplementing your diet with ingestible collagen since nutrient-rich foods don’t provide enough of the amino acids needed for the body to naturally produce collagen.
For best results, we recommend taking our collagen supplements consistently for 4-6 weeks. As always, we also recommend discussing your health goals with your licensed healthcare professional. They can best provide you with the diagnosis and treatment of any medical condition and assist you as well in deciding whether a dietary supplement will be a helpful addition to your regimen.
