I have been using collagen for a few years now after I was turned on to it by Sean Lake at BUBS.
It is one of the few supplements that I use and am a full believer. My hair and nails grow faster when I use collagen. My skin is better feeling and I feel better.
I am always open to trying new products that can improve your health. Naked Nutrition is based out of Coral Gables, Florida and they were kind enough to send me a sample to try out.
I put one scoop in my coffee this morning and started my day with a kettlebell workout outside in my driveway.
One of the main ways that collagen protein can help you is to improve your gut health.
That doesnt sound too sexy but tell me how that works.
The unique structural properties and amino acid profile of collagen enables it to reducing gut inflammation, heal stomach ulcers, aid in digestion, and regulate stomach acid secretion. This is very important as you want your food to properly digest. Poor digestion leads to a host of any other problems.
I made a quick smoothie to try it out.
One cup of milk
One scoop of Naked Nutrition collagen
6 tablespoons of vanilla yogurt
Stir it up – no blender needed
