A workout friend told me about this and how it’s good for your joints/workout recovery. I’ve been using it daily for 7 months and my finger nails are very strong and harder to cut with nail clippers AND my thinning hair has been growing back on top fuller as well as in length. Wow, I was not expecting that! I’m happy. Maybe it’s the extra quality protein source in my diet from this product? I’ve taken biotin for many years for my hair and I think it’s helped (and will continue to take) but Vital Proteins has been a night and day difference. I thought my hair was just thinning from getting older. Nothing has helped my hair as much as this has. My joints are feeling good, I do crossfit 4 times a week for over 3.5 years plus hike at elevation in the mountains for over 20 years. I wanted to keep my joints healthy as I age but this product has proven to do more! I probably started noticing the hair on top of my head after about a couple months ... seven months later my ends are finally filling out the noticeable gaps I’ve had for about 5-6 years. Such a pleasant surprise!!! - Carlo E.
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 its benefits include:
Research suggests that combining 10-20 grams of collagen with vitamin C can help improve tendon, ligament, joint and muscle health, especially when consumed 30-60 minutes before exercise or strength training. Vital Protein's Collagen Peptides is a great option because it contains just one ingredient: bovine hide collagen peptides. Vital Protein Collagen Peptides have a higher bioavailability than regular collagen, meaning they are digested and absorbed by the body quickly for maximum benefits. Not to mention, it is gluten free, paleo friendly, and Whole30 approved.
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!
These single serve packets contain 10 g of collagen peptides, which is exactly how much you need to see the injury preventing and tissue repairing benefits following a hard training session. We recommend mixing 1-2 single serve sleeves with water or some type of vitamin C rich drink (such as Nuun vitamins or Puori CX3 vitamin C + energy) and drinking 60 minutes before a training session, strength training session, or other form of activity. Or use it in the kitchen to add an extra boost of nutrients to your soups, stews, sauces, or even desserts!
