So What’s The Deal With Collagen?

Grass-fed collagen is a protein that is naturally found in the human body. It plays a vital role in connective tissues.

Exogenous collagen is what we get from outside sources, like supplements. Here’s what taking collagen can do for you:

  • Improve your skin’s health. Collagen can help strengthen the skin, provide elasticity, and boost hydration. Collagen supplements can also help slow down the aging of your skin.
  • Helps with joint pain. Regularly taking collagen supplements can reduce overall joint pain as it helps retain cartilage health.

Adding collagen into your smoothies is a great way to reap its benefits. Take it with this spiced orange smoothie, and it’s like you’re treating yourself.

Why Spiced?

By spiced, I mean adding ginger, nutmeg, and turmeric. It gives this smoothie a “kick.” These ingredients aid in boosting your immune system and also provide anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger and turmeric are also a great way to wake up in the morning for a more energized, and productive day.

This Spiced Orange Collagen Smoothie is a great addition to your healthy routine. It’s a wonderful way to reap several health benefits and it just tastes so great!
