What Is Collagen? 

Simply put, collagen is the most abundant protein in our body. It’s the “glue” that keeps everything together and functioning in tip-top shape. It’s found in our connective tissue, skin, the lining of our gut, our muscles and joints—pretty much everywhere. Unfortunately, as we age, our natural supply of collagen begins to decline and the physical signs of aging take place. Sagging skin, wrinkles, brittle hair and nails, weight gain, stiff joints, digestive issues, you name it! What’s worse is that once we begin to lose our collagen storage (around the age of 25) we can’t produce more of it! So, once it’s gone, it’s gone! But, thankfully there is a way to replenish your body of the collagen that was once lost. That’s by taking a hydrolyzed collagen peptide powder daily. If you want to learn more details about collagen and how it works, be sure to check out “What Are Collagen Peptides?” 

Collagen Benefits

Taking a daily collagen supplement has a variety of health benefits that can help you look and feel years younger. By taking as little as one scoop per day, collagen can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, smoothe cellulite, firm and tighten skin, strengthen hair and nails, reduce popping joints, ease joint pain, speed recover, heal gut and digestive issues, and can even help you lose weight! The benefits are undeniable! In fact, numerous studies have proven its effectiveness on slowing the physical signs of aging!

How To Use Collagen

Collagen is extremely simple to add to your daily routine. Depending on the type of collagen you have, it can either be taken with water or added to any of your favorite recipes! But, don’t worry, I’m sharing 47 of the best collagen recipes out there, so no matter if you’re using a Super Youth flavored or unflavored collagen powder from SkinnyFit, you’ll know exactly how to use it and enjoy every sip. 😉If you want to learn more about Super Youth collagen and what makes it different than other collagens out there, be sure to click here

How to use flavored collagen

If you have a flavored collagen, like SkinnyFit Super Youth in Chocolate Cake, Tropical Punch, or Peach Mango flavor, your life is about to be reallllllll simple. These delicious collagen flavors were created for anyone who wants the quickest and easiest option for getting their daily dose of collagen. Their delicious flavor profiles and hydrolyzed formula make them the perfect collagen for mixing with water and drinking on their own. But, if you’d like to experiment with using flavored collagen in more ways, we have plenty of recipes for you to explore below. 

How to use unflavored collagen

Unflavored collagen is, hands down, the most versatile collagen out there. SkinnyFit Super Youth Unflavored is flavorless, odorless, and essentially tastes like whatever you mix it with. So, if you want to add it to your morning coffee, favorite smoothie, or even to your favorite dessert, you won’t even realize it’s there! Unflavored collagen, however, is not intended to be mixed with water, so I only recommend adding it to the things you love! Since unflavored collagen is the most versatile, it’s used in a variety of our best collagen recipes.
