Soaking your nails in gelatin is soooo 1970s. These days, you know better. You know that healthy skin comes from within: the foods you eat and your body's digestion. Make amazing nails (and hair, and skin, and bones, and more!) with the super-protein collagen. Vital Proteins has made collagen into a turbo tissue healer in this tub of Beauty Greens Powder: a blend of organic greens, probiotics, and collagen from sustainable marine sources. It's practically a spa treatment in your shaker bottle.
Remember those 1970s magazine ad clippings that instructed us to soak our fingernails in gelatin to make them strong? Yeah, that was pretty much a load of bunk. Beauty and strength come from within: from what we eat and how we treat our amazing systems from the inside out. Treat them well with this Beauty Greens powder from Vital Proteins. The foundation is marine collagen: the building blocks of all of your connective tissues.
What else is great about this powder? It's a little like having your bone broth without all the cooking and fuss and (yeah, I know) funky kitchen smell. Collagen is one of the best parts of broth, and here it is for you, ready to go into your blender bottle and become your breakfast or post-gym recovery beverage. It's lightly sweetened with coconut water and vanilla and boosted with greens powder and probiotics. I can't think of a more complete powder out there. Really!
From Vital Proteins: "Natural collagen peptides are highly bio-available, digestible and soluble in cold water. The intake of collagen ensures the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of skin, hair, tendon, cartilage, bones, and joints. Vital Proteins’ marine collagen, part of the Beauty Greens blend, is made from the scales of fresh Non-GMO Project verified snapper wild-caught in the Pacific Ocean near Hawaii using sustainable harvesting."
By consuming real food collagen and vital nutrients, your body is better prepared to restore and maintain your good health, which translates into a good youthful appearance:
What is in this powder is nothing but awesome. Start with equal amounts of marine collagen plus organic raw greens. It's a one-two punch for your health and body systems. Then comes the hyaluronic acid. The what-a-ronic? Hi-ya-loo-ron-ick. Ok, then. This stuff is amazing for your skin, working to help your body make more of its own collagen and keeping moisture in your skin. Finally, this powder goes for the gut: probiotics to help you to digest all these great nutrients you are taking in.
Details (per serving):
There are tons of ways to consume this greens powder, and they are super-easy because collagen peptides dissolve in cool fluid without much of a fuss, unlike gelatin. The greens are a little thicker, as you probably know, so use a blender bottle or actual blender to make this beverage awesomely smooth and quaffable.
I love to mix it with nut milks, or just water, ice, and my favorite high-fat grass-fed plain yogurt. Super creamy and delicious!
Vital Proteins helps people feel better and live fuller lives through sustainably-sourced nutrition products, promoting health, fitness and natural beauty. We do that by providing nourishing collagen and promoting our production of collagen - an essential nutrient stripped from our diets by modern food-processing.
We know that while our bodies’ collagen production slows as we age, our need for it only grows as our bodies become less efficient and we maintain a vibrant life. And Vital Proteins believes that if you want to, you can make the most out of every moment you’re given - that your body shouldn’t be a limitation, but a catalyst.
Our products are natural sources of essential proteins, sourced from pasture-raised cows in Brazil and New Zealand and wild-caught fish in Hawaii. Why go so many extra miles for these sources? Because there’s nothing more important than one’s health, and we believe the body needs and deserves high-quality building blocks for life’s adventures.
Whether we can help add a mile to your run, a glow to your complexion or just enrich your naturally vibrant life, there’s a protein for everyone, and more than one reason to love Vital Proteins.
