All About Collagen + My Favorite Brand at the Moment!
Collagen, collagen, collagen- it seems to be EVERYWHERE nowadays- but what is it exactly and what does it do?!
So collagen is a naturally occurring protein found in our bodies, and is found in our muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, digestive system, and tendons.
It actually accounts for 1/3 of our overall protein! Collagen is especially beneficial in supporting our hair, skin, and nails, improving digestion, and reducing the signs of aging. Even though there are many lotions and creams containing collagen which claim to improve skin, collagen is best absorbed internally, which is why I enjoy it almost every day!
A lot of you have been asking about the difference between collagen pills and collagen in powdered form, so I decided to personally test it out myself! I’ve been using a powder for over a year now– in particular NeoCell, which I love! I use the NeoCell powder in smoothies, my morning matcha, and sometimes even in soup. It’s easy to throw into pretty much everything, which is why I never really needed to use the tablets.
The only time I love taking tablets vs. a powder is when I’m on-the-go. Since I travel a ton, it’s important for me to pack tablets since they’re easy and convenient to take on-the-go. I won’t travel without my vitamins, probiotics, and collagen!
NeoCell’s powdered collagen really doesn’t taste like anything! It mixes pretty nicely in just about any food or drinks. I’m covered year-round having both NeoCell’s powdered collagen and collagen tablets– I love them both equally!
What do you guys prefer? Tablets or powder form? Comment below!
