Lets talk about Collagen

Lets talk collagen. If you’re curious about the newest trend in health that is suddenly everywhere, let’s familiarize you so you’re ready to dive in as well!

Collagen is the most abundant protein and second largest substance (behind water) that is found in the human body. Until our twenties, our body naturally produces collagen. As this production slows and eventually ceases, we begin to see the signs of aging. Ahhhhh, why must this happen? I already feel like an old hen after having three kids. Now that I am getting older and my skin is showing age, the Vital Proteins collagen products have become every day essentials to my life! By replenishing collagen levels, it will benefit the building blocks that maintain hair, skin and nails. Let’s call it, the Fountain of Youth! I received these products in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Read my disclaimer page for more information.

I have so many people ask me about which Vital Proteins collagen supplements they should take and especially questions for how to do so on a budget. I regularly rotate all of them. I love the health benefits from all of them and the different ways you can use them. This has also led me to break down what benefits are in each of them so people can decide which ones they want to purchase first that will fit organically into their lifestyle the best.

    Hi! New Mom here and I’m finding out all the things that I cannot take while nursing. Especially working on getting rid of a head cold the options are very limited. I am assuming this is okay to take while nursing?

    • Amanda Scott

      Hey! Yes of course. You can take this while nursing and for head colds I suggest lots of essential oils, bone broth and sleep.
