What we think
Vital Proteins has a great line of collagen products for a variety of uses. Why collagen you ask? Collagen has been on the rise in the sports nutrition realm and some of the benefits include:
- It may help improve tissue and cartilage repair
- It can improve gut health, which is great for athletes to make sure they are absorbing all of the nutrients they are eating
- It contains 8 of the 9 essential amino acids, giving you the nutrients you need to recover.
- This Beauty Collagen Greens also contains probiotics, to help keep you healthy from the inside out
Vital Proteins' Collagen Beauty Greens is a nourishing natural elixir for glowing skin and beauty that starts from the inside out. Compared to the regular Collagen Beauty from Vital Proteins, Collagen Beauty Greens contains a few extra vitamins and minerals coming from organic wheat grass, organic alfalfa leaf, organic kale, organic barley grass, and organic spinach leaf.
The Non-GMO Marine Collagen Peptides are combined with healthy organic greens rich in vitamin A, hyaluronic acid, and probiotics to deliver a powerful concoction for healthy skin, hair, and nails. Hyaluronic acid has been shown to improve hydration of skin which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and combat damage from spending hours training in the sun. It also helps speed up wound healing, relieve joint pain, and improve gut health.
With 12 g of collagen per serving, it contains just what we need to improve the health of our hair, skin, nails, joints, ligaments, and tendons. All athletes, especially those who have experienced tendon, ligament, joint or muscle injuries, can benefit from including collagen in their daily fueling routines. This is why we love the Vital Proteins line!
HOW WE USE IT
The versatility of this product is great! With a subtle flavor, it can be mixed into water, juice, smoothies, yogurt, oatmeal, desserts, and more. It does not contain many carbohydrates or electrolytes, so we recommend using this product after your hard training session to help combat the stress on your body and skin, rather than before or during exercise.
