Last week, I shared a story about a new collagen peptide product I've been reviewing called Vital Proteins.
After experimenting with the brand a bit more, I'm endorsing two specific products of theirs that I absolutely love. I've really noticed my skin getting brighter and my hair and nails stronger since I began using all their products, but these two really stand out.
First, the basic Collagen Peptides. Know that when I write "basic" there is really nothing basic about this product! It has 18 grams of protein per serving which makes it a great addition to my morning smoothie or coffee. Fruit and vegetable filled smoothies can be high in antioxidants and vitamins but are often low in protein. However, adding Collagen Peptides eliminates that issue. Additionally, this collagen is flavorless so I can add it to any liquid that my ultimate concierge or I may be drinking.
The second product that I'm loving as of now is the Lavender Lemon Collagen Beauty Water. The subtle lemon lavender flavor is oh-so-refreshing mixed in with a bit of carbonated water. I found a recipe from Vital Proteins for Lavender Lemon Bars.
Vital Proteins Lavender Lemon Collagen Beauty Water is unique because it not only contains marine collagen peptides, that is collagen from snapper scales, but also probiotics and hyaluronic acid. While I am certainly not an expert, I do know that probiotics are essential for gut health and hyaluronic acid is beneficial for reducing joint pain. With so many nutritional benefits and a great taste, adding this product to my diet is a no-brainer!
I'd love to know what you think about Vital Proteins! Have you tried it? Do you want to try it? How do you use it? Please do tell! Share your thoughts either in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
P.S. A heartfelt thanks to the many of you who commented both on the blog and on social media on my very personal story about Orchid's battle with ALS yesterday. I will work on replying to you all but in the meantime, your kindness lifted my spirits in ways that I can never fully express. I am so grateful.
