We are continuing our Brands We Love series with Vital Proteins. From their Collagen Peptides to Beef Gelatin to the Beauty Greens, there is something for everyone in your family! Beauty comes from the inside out, and the way we fuel our bodies is directly related to our overall skin health which is why we are HUGE fans of Vital Proteins!
Collagen and Beauty
Some of you may be asking “Why is collagen good for me?” We’re so glad you asked! Collagen is the building block for skin, hair, bones, nails and joints. Vital Proteins collagen works from the inside out to provide you with glowing skin the natural way! “Collagen helps restore skin’s moisture, improving the elasticity, tone and vibrance that’s already within you,” says Vital Proteins. Vital Proteins’ mission is “to provide natural, simple ways to combat the signs of aging to keep you looking and ultimately feeling your best.”
Nose to tail
Vital Proteins’ philosophy mirrors our own Nose-To-Tail philosophy, which emphasizes using every single part of the animal. There are so many nutrient rich parts of the animal that normally get thrown away including the hides, which is where Vital Proteins gets their collagen peptides and beef gelatin. They source all of their collagen from grass-fed, pasture raised cattle. We can not stress enough the importance of knowing where your food and supplements are coming from!
So now that you are pumped on Vital Proteins, here are a few words from Team FATCO on some of our fav products and how we use them.
Cassy: “My favorite Vital Proteins product is their Collagen Beauty Greens! This product combines collagen peptides with greens, hyaluronic acid and probiotics, so you’re feeding your skin from the inside-out. The flavor is a mild coconut & vanilla flavor, so you can drink it on its own or mix it into a smoothie!”
Julia: “I live off of soups and chilis during the winters in Tahoe and LOVE adding the Beef Gelatin to all of my soups and chilis for an amazing boost of protein and nutrients.”
So head on over and get your Vital Proteins products HERE!
