Vital Proteins Collagen Veggie Blend
What we think
What’s all this hype about Matcha you ask? Matcha is green tea leaves ground into a fine powder, meaning you get far more nutrients because you are drinking the leaves themselves rather than just soaking them in hot water to get the flavor. Matcha also contains 137 times the amount of antioxidants as other green teas and has naturally occurring caffeine in an amount similar to that of one cup of coffee. So of course we love that Vital Proteins came up with this awesome Matcha drink that also contains collagen!
Collagen has been on the rise in the sports nutrition realm and some of its benefits include:
- It may help improve tissue and cartilage repair (especially when taken before exercise or strength training)
- 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.
Vital Proteins Collagen Matcha is a great source of antioxidants and contains hyarulonic acid, probiotics, and 10 g of collagen per serving, which is just what we need to improve the health of our hair, skin, nails, gut, joints, ligaments, and tendons. It’s also free of dairy, soy, gluten, and added sugars.
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!
