Full-Proof Ways to Add Adapt Collagen Into Any Diet
As we’ve previously discussed on the blog, collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and is found in skin, muscles, blood, bones, cartilage and ligaments. While our bodies naturally produce collagen every day, production tends to slow down as we get older.
Collagen is a vital building block that:
Increases skin elasticity, has anti-aging properties and strengthens hair and nails
Is fundamental to healthy cell reproduction especially in the body’s connective tissues
Keeps joints strong and flexible, and supports strong bones
Helps build muscle mass and burn fat, giving the body the fuel it needs to power through a workout and improve performance
Improves digestive health, strengthens the gut and aids in weight loss by boosting the metabolism
Enhances sleep and reduces issues related to fatigue
Collagen peptides – also known as hydrolyzed collagen – are an important source of protein for the body. Luckily, adding an extra serving of Adapt Collagen into meals and snacks is an easy way to supplement a diet’s proper collagen levels.
Unlike other collagens on the market, ours is flavorless and easily dissolves in hot or cold liquids. Here are a few ways we like to add collagen into our meals:
First thing in the morning with a smoothie. We like to keep ours simple and nutritious by blending together a cup of almond milk, a scoop of collagen, a handful of spinach or power greens, and a cup of frozen blueberries.
As an on-the-go drink. Dump a scoop of collagen into a tumbler of water or your favorite beverage as you head out the door.
In our coffee or tea. Whether you prefer hot coffee, cold brew or an herbal tea, keep a container of collagen at work to mix into your morning pick-me-up.
As a post-workout supplement. Do you head to the gym on your lunch break? Add a scoop to your post-cardio or strength-training session nutrition before heading back to the office.
As a nutritional add-on to baked goods. Check out our Almond Butter Collagen Protein Balls recipe for an easy way to incorporate our collagen.
As part of our sleep routine. Combine with a natural supplement such as Adapt Nightfall before bedtime for a deep and restful slumber.
The right collagen supplement can positively affect the body from the inside-out. Always use one that is sourced from the highest-quality ingredients and free of unhealthy fillers. Adapt Collagen is non-GMO and made with all natural, grass-fed and pasture-raised organic collagen proteins.
