So... we all know how awesome collagen is, right?
What if there was a super fun way to get it every day without even tasting it?
Attention coffee lovers, I've discovered something awesome!
You know how serious I am about not posting something unless I completely believe in it. With that being said, I am thrilled to be posting this review.
I don't think I've ever been more pleased with a drink powder in my life.
What is Collagen and Why Do We Need It?
Collagen helps to keep our skin looking youthful. As we get older, especially after 30, our natural collagen production begins to decline rapidly. Now that I've hit my 30's, I've noticed a decline in my skin... I can definitely see signs of aging that I didn't see before. I guess you could say it's not as "plump" as it used to be.
Sure I could probably buy some great creams, but knowing all that I know... I understand that if I don't work on the "inside" of my body first, it's going to be difficult to have good results on the outside.
I've wanted a good collagen product for a while. I have tried supplements in the past that never left me impressed, and don't even get me started on the taste of some different products that claim to be tasty.
When I found the Multi Collagen Protein by Vitauthority, I was instantly intrigued by the ingredients and great reviews. I did research on them and found a lot of great things. I reached out and asked to review their product and put it to the test.
Vitauthority sent me the product free of charge so I could do this review and share my real thoughts with my audience.
I like how it is soy free, gluten free, tasteless and odorless. I also loved that it was enhanced with vitamin c and hyaluronic acid.
It says on the container that you can add it into coffee or smoothies. I love both!
Every morning I get out of bed and head straight to the coffee maker with no detours. If I could add this to my coffee, that would be incredible but honestly it sounded too good to be true!
The morning came that I would try this collagen drink for the first time. I walked to my coffee maker as soon as my feet hit the floor. I brewed my coffee, poured it into the cup and opened the container of the multi collagen protein. Based on past experiences, before I poured the scoop into my ever-so-yummy-smelling cup, I thought to myself "well, this is probably going to ruin my coffee, but here we go." I can't believe that was my thinking, but I'm just being honest here!
I poured it in and it literally dissolved within seconds, just like it says on the container! No clumps and it didn't change the texture of my coffee whatsoever. It didn't change the smell of my coffee. Then, for the final test... I took a sip.
Guess what guys? No change in taste. It truly is tasteless and odorless. It was as though I didn't put anything in my coffee, and could enjoy it just like normal.
Wait a second, this is huge! In that moment I realized I was doing something incredible for my skin (and hair, and nails, and teeth, and joints, etc, etc.) and not having to be tortured through it. There was nothing but good about this and I was loving it.
I love my morning coffee, and I just made my morning coffee into a beauty drink. It felt like magic. Now, for the story that I KNEW this was working! (Read more below!)
So, I'm 1 week in of adding a scoop of this to my coffee each morning and a scoop to my afternoon smoothie. I had to update this post with something exciting.
Today I got out of the shower, wrapped myself in a towel and looked in the mirror. I thought for a second "hmm...my face seems to be glowing more than usual, maybe that collagen drink is working?" Just then, in walks my husband. No knocking, no heads up...but hey at least it wasn't my 7 year old.
He comes up behind me and starts to ask me a question. As he's speaking he puts his hands on my shoulders and mid-sentence stops and says "wow, your skin is so soft." Then, completely distracted and no longer talking about what he originally was, he starts rubbing his hands down my arms. He says "Wow! Your skin is just so soft right now. How did you get it like that? It just feels so smooth."
This went on for a few minutes and I started laughing and kicked him out.
I've been with this man for 13 years now. He has touched my skin probably a million times by now. He has never once commented on my skin being smooth or soft.
This stuff is amazing. I cannot wait to continue because I am only 1 week in. I am a customer for life. I will also be looking at what else Vitauthority has to offer. They've got a real winner right here with their collagen drink, and I'm excited to see what other ways I can improve life through their products.
I hope to report back with a hair update, and any other benefits I notice! Until then, check it out for yourself by clicking here and here's more information on the natural sources inside the multi collagen protein powder.
They also have new flavors if you don't want to use it in your coffee.
