Why I Take Collagen Each Day

Nice query, Courtney! I began taking collagen each day on the robust encouragement of the pelvic flooring therapist I went to after Kierstyn was born. She stated that she believes each girl ought to take it, nevertheless it’s particularly good when recovering from childbirth and as you might be getting older (I flip 40 this 12 months!)

In line with her, it’s not solely nice to your pores and skin, nails, and hair, but additionally to your ligaments. (There are numerous articles on the significance of collagen and the way your physique’s manufacturing of it declines as you age. Here’s one article here.)

In all honesty, I’ve not seen an enormous distinction by taking it, however my pelvic flooring therapist made such a distinction in my restoration from being pregnant and childbirth that I’ll do no matter she tells me to do. Plus, I generally battle to get in sufficient protein each day, so taking collagen is one additional type of collagen!

What Model of Collagen I Take

My pelvic flooring therapist beneficial that I get a bathtub of Vital Proteins collagen from Costco as she stated that’s a very good model and a very good worth. Nevertheless, Jesse did some analysis and determined that he felt just like the Trailhead model and the Historic Vitamin model had been higher high quality, in order that’s what he’s been getting for me. (He buys it at an area diet store that he goes to commonly.)

I’m undecided on the value of Important Proteins from Costco (anybody know?). It’s costlier on Amazon ($43 for 28 servings) than what we pay for the Trailhead and Historic Vitamin manufacturers on the diet store (about $35 for 40 servings). Collagen powder shouldn’t be cheap, nevertheless it’s lower than $1 a day and I determine that’s a very good funding in my well being!

(If anybody has options on the place to get good offers on high quality collagen, undoubtedly tell us! I’m new to this and nonetheless studying!)

How I Take My Collagen

I’ve discovered that the simplest method to take collagen is to place a scoop in my tea each day. I simply stick the tea bag and the inside track of collagen within the backside of the mug/tumbler and pour the recent water over it and stir. It fully dissolves and is completely tasteless — as long as you combine it in sufficient liquid.

(I additionally add some sugar or honey and many half and half, so possibly that helps masks the style? One time, I added collagen to just a bit little bit of decaf espresso I had left in a cup and it made the espresso style off since I combined a full scoop into only a 1/3 cup or so of liquid. So I’d advocate including it to a full mug!)

Many individuals additionally add collagen to their espresso or smoothies and it ought to be tasteless that approach, too!

There you’ve got it! It takes little or no effort and it makes me really feel like I’m doing one thing good for my well being each day!

Have you ever taken collagen earlier than? I’d love to listen to your ideas and experiences and any suggestions you’ve got so far as manufacturers!
