Here are some of the amazing nutrients in Dr. Axe Multi Collagen Beauty + Sleep
There's four collagen sources here: grass-fed beef, chicken, wild fish, and eggshell membrane.
First, you've got a simple looking powder here. What makes THIS collagen special? It's a five-way party. There are several kinds of collagen proteins, and this powder from Dr. Axe contains FIVE of them: types I, II, III, V, and X. You'll have your bases covered in nutrients and get the full benefits of high absorption by your body.
AND, collagen in general is amazing for your body and your health. Why amazing? It's all about the glycine: one of the 20 amino acids, sorely lacking in the modern diet. Glycine is one of the reasons why bone broth is so great for us. It's why a crock-pot of roast or oxtails make the dish delicious beyond belief: those connective tissues from the stew breaking down slowly into a rich broth. You might think that only fat is satiating and rich, but the next time you have stew, full of collagen, you'll realize that protein packs a punch, too.
What else is in this collagen powder? Besides glycine, the predominant amino acid is proline. Proline is amazing for tissue development just like glycine. If you're ready to go really in depth and read about these wonderful amino acids and how they work to support health, this is a great write-up from Weston A Price: Glycine, Proline, Gelatin!
How do you take your Collagen? So many ways!
There are tons of ways to consume collagen peptides, and they are super-easy because peptides dissolve in cool fluid without much of a fuss, unlike gelatin. Down the hatch! However, if you're a frequent consumer of protein powders, you know that texture and flavor can be sticking points in making sure that you're getting the nutrition you need from the powders. That's why this collagen mixes instantly, whether in a cool glass of water in the evening, or even in your hot tea before bed.
With any kind of collagen protein, you can also add it to any kind of smoothie on the planet. Maybe you're a smoothie before bed kind of person: go for it!
