5 Perfect Summer Collagen Recipes
July 2nd, 2018
Want to give your 4th of July drinks and treats and extra boost? Look no further than collagen! Collagen is the “glue” that holds your body together and is found in your organs, muscles, skin, hair, nails, teeth, bones, blood vessels, tendons, joints, cartilage and digestive system.
In addition to repairing a leaky gut and supporting healthy hair, skin, and nails, this essential protein helps with muscle formation, controls blood pressure, supports bone growth and repair, improves detoxification and liver function, and is anti-inflammatory to help reduce joint pain and increase mobility in patients with osteoarthritis.
I take a collagen supplement every day in a convenient powder form. Hydrolyzed Collagen, such as that found in The Myers Way® Collagen Protein, is a unique combination of amino acids in concentrated levels that promotes rapid reproduction of blood cells for repairing and rebuilding. The Myers Way® Collagen Protein is made from grass-fed, pasture raised cows, and is non-GMO, gluten-free and kosher.
I enjoy stirring a scoop of collagen into my morning smoothie or a hot cup of tea, however there are so many other fun ways to incorporate collagen into your daily diet, from mocktails to popsicles! I’ve rounded up some of my favorite collagen recipes with a summery twist to get you ready for barbecues and poolside lounging just in time for the 4th of July, while showing your body some much-needed love from head to toe!
