Protein shakes are my go-to essential. I’d say 98% of my mornings (out of an entire year) consist of protein shakes. Choosing the right blend of ingredients has been years in the making. I feel like I’ve tried and tested so many fad ingredients, products and potions that my innards are like a science lab.
But, some products end up sticking with me and I get totally OCD about them. When I’ve found a vegan protein I enjoy, I’ll actually put individual portions in snack-size baggies and then pack them all up into a larger baggie for travel. I honestly never miss a morning shake.
For the past year, I’ve also been incorporating WithinUs Tru Marine Collagen. At first, I wasn’t sure about the whole collagen movement and was worried it was a bit of a trend ingredient. But once I saw my nail strength and hair growth, I realized that replenishing collagen within the body is truly key to healthy skin, hair and nails.
Why TruMarine Collagen?
The goal is to restore the collage that your body starts to breakdown around your 25th birthday. WithinUs TruMarine Collagen is 100% Ultra-Pure and doesn’t contain any other ingredients (like fats, carbs, sugars, dairy, wheat, gluten, artificial colours, flavours and so on). Its exclusively and sustainably sourced from the deep waters of the South Pacific Ocean.
Pills and capsules can’t even compare. In fact, 1-2 scoops of it is equal to approximately 10-20 pills or capsules.
Benefits of replenishing your collagen:
- Combats signs of aging by minimizing fine lines and wrinkles
- Increases skin hydration
- Reduces joint pain
- Improve post-workout recovery (you’ll actually notice a reduction in down-time and sore muscles)
- strengthen hair and nails (my nails used to split and peel but now they’re so strong that I have to keep them trim so I don’t scratch my baby — I never thought it was possible for me to have that problem)
- Improve lean muscle gain
Not all collagen is created equal!
Like all health products, supplements, proteins and vitamins, no two items are exactly the same. Like top essential oils, this brand of collagen is provides a high concentration of specific amino acids which help with the formation of collagen within the body.
