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. Research suggests that it may help boost tissue and cartilage repair. Collagen has also been shown to improve gut health, which is great for athletes to make sure they are absorbing all of the nutrients they are eating. Another bonus feature of collagen is that contains 8 of the 9 essential amino acids, giving you the nutrients you need to recover. Athletes who have experienced tendon, ligament, joint or muscle injuries may benefit from including collagen in their daily fueling routines. This is why we love the Vital Proteins line!
Ideally, we’re supposed to eat five fruits and vegetables total per day. Did your mouth fall open when you saw this number? If you’re thinking to yourself, wow that’s a lot of fruits and veggies, then this Collagen Veggie Blend might be just what you need to fill in those gaps. With two servings of vegetables and a half serving of fruit, half of your daily needs are met with this supplement alone! This blend packs the benefit of collagen with 11 USDA organic fruits and vegetables to help keep you covered on the days you eat all your veggies, and the days you don’t.
