Here are some of the amazing nutrients in Dr. Axe Multi Chocolate Collagen
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? How about a perfectly portioned dose of chocolate! Sweetened with just a hint of stevia, this powder mixes instantly in hot water, your coffee, your favorite smoothie, or however you'd like to consume. Sprinkle and mix it in to your yogurt or oatmeal! Get creative and enjoy the nutrients.
How do you take your Chocolate 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 where the chocolate and stevia come in: you won't need to do much (if anything!) to this powder to make it amazingly delicious.
As with all collagen protein, you can also add it to any kind of smoothie on the planet. Kale smoothie, fruit smoothie, Liz Wolfe's liver smoothie (Google it, really) - go wild.
