I am a huge fan of Vital Proteins! This company offers a wide variety of clean products that range from collagen, gelatin, bone broth and more. What makes their products different than others is the quality of their ingredients and their lack of fillers.
Their Beauty Collagen and Collagen Beauty Greens not only contains probiotics good for your gut but they also contain a special probiotic called Bacillus Coagulans that has been shown to help fight off candida. Vital proteins doesn’t add sugar, stevia, or “flavorings” to these products. Instead it is actually flavored with organic ingredients! Beauty Collagen and Collagen Beauty Greens both contain hyaluronic acid, a highly absorbable nutrient that works in tandem with collagen to enhance your body’s natural beauty, as it was meant to shine.

The health benefits of gelatin contain a long list of attributes geared towards gut health and digestion. Not only does it help improve the lining of your digestive tract, but it also benefits your hair, nails, skin, joints, and so much more! Gelatin helps improve the lining of the digestive tract thus preventing leaky gut syndrome. The gut lining as one of the body’s most important lines of defense and prevents leakage into the bloodstream, which triggers inflammation.
The Collagen Peptides offer all the same benefits but the differences in products are primarily of culinary use. Gelatin will melt in warm liquids and then will firm up once it cools down. You can mix the gelatin into hot liquids like soups for the added benefits or use it in cold recipes to create a variety of probiotic enhanced jello! I like to mix the Beef Gelatin into my tea daily. It is tasteless and dissolves quickly in the warm water. The collagen peptides can be mixed into either hot or cold liquids but won’t firm up at colder temperatures. That makes it great for smoothies and baked goods. I mix a serving into my protien shakes after each workout to get that extra boost!
