Vital Proteins gangs all here! I was introduced to Vital Proteins a long time ago on Instagram. I followed them and followed many others who would rave about how amazing they were and finally about two months ago I took the plunge and wandered into Erewhon in Venice and came out with a large container of the Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides and have basically been singing their praises ever since.
Collagen is so amazing for our bodies. It’s the most abundant protein in the body and is a key constituent of all our connective tissues in our body. Collagen is a major player when it comes to the infrastructure of our musculoskeletal system, which is essential for mobility. Our bodies stop producing as much collagen as we age and that’s why adding into our diets is amazing to help keep our skin, hair, nails, and joints strong and glowing from the inside out! Collagen also can help with leaky gut and can help you sleep better and help with the appearance of cellulite! So many amazing benefits it’s pretty unreal, but wait, it’s so real!
Today, I’m so excited to share the four different Vital Proteins products I’ve been using every day for the last two months! Not only are my nails stronger than ever but I feel so much better! I haven’t had any stomach issues and I’ve felt more alert and I swear my hair is growing so much! So read on and share with me below if you’ve tried Vital Proteins and which one is your favorite!
Unflavored | Grass-Fed & Pasture-Raised
What is it: Collagen Peptides are a 100% natural anti-aging dietary supplement! Peptides are short-chain amino acids naturally derived from collagen protein. These natural peptides are highly bio-available, digestible and soluble in cold and hot water. The intake of collagen ensures the cohesion, elasticity, and regeneration of skin, hair, tendon, cartilage, bones, and joints!
Benefits: Promotes youthful skin, healthier hair, and stronger nails, helps keep bones healthy and strong, supports joint health, contributes to a balanced diet and helps maintain weight, and natural glycine promotes healthy immune, digestive, and central nervous systems.
Why I like it and How I use it: I love this original unflavored option because you can literally use it in everything and you can’t even tell it’s in there! I’ve used this before in baked goods, acai bowls, and I use it in my daily Creamy Collagen Coffee as well! If I had to choose one that I would buy over and over again, it would be this one because of its versatility.
Vanilla & Coconut Water | Grass-Fed & Pasture-Raised
What is it: An elixir of collagen, hyaluronic acid (amazing for your skin!!) and a probiotics dietary supplement. Sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine hides from Brazil to ensure a natural, high quality, and sustainable source of this ancient nutrient (collagen). The Vital Proteins formula combines collagen with probiotics, Madagascar vanilla beans, natural hyaluronic acid and coconut water in a proprietary natural process without the need for additional sugars, sweeteners, or maltodextrin (no fillers here, thank god!).
Benefits: Promotes youthful skin, healthier hair, and stronger nails, contributes to deep sleep, increases athletic performance and achieves a lean body, helps keep bones healthy and strong, supports joint health, and promotes healthy immune, digestive, and central nervous systems.
Why I like it and How I use it: I love this flavored alternative to the original Collagen Peptides! I love to use this one in my smoothies and when I make acai bowls (recipe coming soon!)! It also would be amazing to bake with because the consistency is closer to an almond flour than the other options.
Coconut Vanilla | Marine Collagen & Greens
What is it: An elixir of marine collagen, raw greens, hyaluronic acid, and a probiotics dietary supplement. This product is a nourishing natural elixir for glowing skin and beauty that starts from the inside out. Non-GMO marine collagen peptides are combined with healthy organic greens rich in vitamin A, hyaluronic acid, and probiotics to deliver beauty from within for healthy skin, hair, and nails.
Benefits: Visibly improves your natural beauty, promote collagen formation, helps prevent the signs of aging, improves skin smoothness, increases skin moisture, revitalizes skin tone, reduces fine lines, strengthens hair and nails, and heals skin and reduces redness!
Why I like it and How I use it: Love the Beauty Greens because of all the benefits you get from the GREENS! This is great if you love green smoothies or if you run out of greens to add to your smoothie this will work wonders! I love the consistency in smoothies and love the flavor as well!
Cocoa & Coconut Water | Grass-fed & Pasture-Raised
What is it: The perfect natural protein blend to increase athletic performance, improve recovery, and achieve a lean body. The advanced protein utilization formula combines collagen with grass-fed whey protein, cocoa beans, probiotics, and natural hyaluronic acid to achieve a premium protein blend for improved athletic performance.
Benefits: Increases athletic performance, increases protein synthesis, improves hydration, increases joint flexibility, improves amino acid absorption, supports blood flow to muscles, improve recovery, and helps protein delivery to the body
Why I like it and How I use it: Okay no joke I’ve probably tried about 50 different whey protein powders and this by far is one of the best! The consistency is amazing and I love that there is hardly any sugar (only 4 grams) and the ingredients are by far the most natural and there are no fillers, additives, etc. I use this in my chocolate banana peanut butter smoothies, they taste like a healthy chocolate shake and I usually drink one after an intense weight lifting session or hour-long cardio session so I make sure to refuel my body properly.
