I’ve always been that person with the thinnest of thin finger nails, it’s just a fact. Another fact: I’ve always leaned on the more thicker side of hair, but that’s changed with age as I notice more and more thinning strands as I brush out tangles on a regular basis. (This also varies depending on my stress levels at any given moment.)
They say aging is undeniable, but I like to think that there are a few things that I can start doing now to help slow the process! Now, hear me out when I say that 28 is by no means “old”, but I’m 100% aware that it’s definitely not 18–just another fun fact of life.
One more fact: I have always been extremely tough on my joints going from competitive cheerleading for 5+ years in my teenage years to pounding the pavement as a runner since college all the way up to today. I’ve demanded a lot out of my bones and joints without hesitation for years on end with zero protection to support the high intensity of training I’ve put myself through.
That is, until now. As of the past month or so–I decided to start adding in Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides to my daily coffee. One flavorless scoop that dissolves in my warm cup of coffee and I’m good for the day! Can I just tell you that I’ve noticed a HUGE difference in my finger nails and joints already? My hair is a bit of a challenge just because of it’s natural curly texture, but it has definitely been growing too! (Oh, and I should mention this is NOT a sponsored post and these opinions are 100% my own from experience that I want to share with you.) To say I’m sold, would be an understatement. These health benefits are just too good to pass up, and with little to no effort is an even bigger added bonus! That’s what we’re all after, right? You can add up to as many as 4 scoops a day, but I just add 1-2 and it does the trick for me!
Plus, the word “injury” is never something a runner (or any athlete of the sort) wants to hear, so I’m all about something to help my bones and joints stay strong and healthy for as long as possible!
From Vital Protein’s website:
Vital Proteins helps people feel better and live fuller lives through whole-food-based nutrition. It’s our goal to help you feel your best, give your best, and look your best.
We do that by providing a way for your body to boost collagen production with natural, minimally-processed and clean label products.
Collagen is the vital building block of our bodies including skin, hair, nails, bones, and joints. Our bodies cannot synthesize enough collagen on their own and our diets today contain minimal collagen.**

You also don’t have to add it to coffee, but you can add it to your smoothies or warm lemon water too! The possibilities are endless because it dissolves into pretty much anything! It’s just another way I can sneak in some healthy goodness into my daily routine without even putting a second thought to it! Who doesn’t want that?
I share all of this to say, if you haven’t tried adding Collagen Peptides to your daily routine–you should definitely give it a try ASAP! Again, these are all my own opinions and they didn’t pay me a penny to say a word of this!
