For the last few months I have been fasting 2-3 days a week. I do a partial fast. On the days when I fast, I make sure I get my Bulletproof Coffee when I get to work to keep my mind sharp. Bulletproof coffee is coffee mixed with MCT oil and butter and I always add a scoop of collagen protein too. Why?
Why do I take collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and is found in skin, bones, teeth, cartilage, eyes, muscles, blood vessels, lungs, lining of your organs and digestive tract (!).
Studies have shown that our body still produces collagen but past the age of 25 this begins to decline and this is when supplementation becomes primordial to help restore collagen levels. Collagen is important for skin elasticity and a supplement can help nourish the skin and combat the effects of aging.
Adding collagen protein to your diet is so easy, you can even add it to water, and you are guaranteed a clean, gluten free, dairy free source of absorbable gelatine (collagen powder is simply hydrolysed gelatine by the way). Myself, alongside many health and beauty online bloggers agree, adding a collagen supplement to your diet is incredibly beneficial for overall health and wellness.
How to take collagen? When taking a collagen powder, the best way to incorporate it into your diet is to add it to a smoothie, a coffee or any drink of your chance. If you take powdered collagen, it's usually tasteless, so you won't see any difference in the taste of your food or drink.5
Why do I like Collagen:
- Completely dissolves in coffee or even water
- Made from grass-fed cows. Nothing synthetic
- It has no chalky aftertaste
- Mixes easily
Finally why Planet Paleo?
Planet Paleo Pure Collagen Powder contains 100% highly absorbable collagen peptides sourced from the hides, bones and connective tissue of grass-fed cows. Collagen provides a highly nutritious, bioavailable form of amino acids lacking in modern-day diets heavily reliant on muscle meats.
✓ Grass-fed beef collagen from farms with superior animal welfare
✓ Rich in amino acids such as glycine and proline
✓ Supports strong joint, digestive and nervous system health
✓ Promotes recovery from fatigue and exercise
So to sum up I can honestly say that Planet Paleo Pure Collagen is now a staple in my diet and I hope you give it a try and I am sure you will be hooked.
