I have been a huge fan of Vital Proteins for the past year or so but my love for their collagen peptides grew even more after my accident back at the beginning of March. If you haven’t had a chance to read my article on sweat.com about all the benefits of Collagen I would suggest you check it out here.
Essentially collagen peptides help in healing skin, and bone health. It is vital in fitness (no pun intended) stronger bodies & bones. One a day to day Collagen keeps you full, helps with digestion, aids weight loss, promotes health skin and hair and improves the look skin with fever lines and wrinkles of course one of my faves!
I’m sharing my Five Fave product from Vital Proteins with you all. The brand is all around awesome. Their outlook on their business is to promote natural whole nutrition. Key world being natural that I of course love. They state: “There is nothing more important than ones health, and we believe the body needs and deserves high quality building blocks for life’s adventures.”
Their brand identity is something similar to my own. They aim to help people achieve their fullest and best lives, ultimately similar to my Fit Fatale girls, finding their happiest lives through health. Natural beauty is something that comes from within. Yes it’s relative to the way you treat others and the world around you, but it is so important how you feed yourself. How you feed yourself becomes the beauty you put forward. It turns into your mood, your body, your brain, your skin, your cells. Mental and physical health are all a product of what nourishment and nutrients our body gets.
Since collagen slows as we age, is stripped from food processing and is a vital thing in our beauty, youth and daily bone function, the consumption of collagen and nutrients helping in the production of collagen can be life changing in any diet. You start to glow when you take Vital Proteins. I personally did! Their beauty water and beauty supplement were the two things I had the most comments on. “How did your hair grow so fast and healthy” or “You skin looks so plump and full”.
Vital Proteins are naturally sourced from pasture raised cows in Brazil and New Zealand while their wild-cough fish in sourced from Hawaii. They put research into finding the highest quality proteins for their product and it shows in the results from taking it. Not all meat, fish … or protein supplements are made the same. Thats something important to keep in mind.
My Relationship with this brand grew so naturally, having loved the product from the moment I tried it… their cute and clean packaging doesn't hurt either! I strongly suggest trying it out to anyone looking to achieve their optimal health. That being said, here are my Five Fave from Vital Proteins.

One of my most recent fave recipes featuring Vital Proteins!
Collagen Boosting Coconut Turmeric Milk
Scoop of Vanilla Coconut Vital Proteins
1 Cup of Coconut Milk
1 Tbsp Turmeric
2 small scoops servings of Royal Jelly
1 Tbsp of MCT Oil
1 Tbsp of Cinnamon
Warm the coconut milk up on the stove and then add all the ingredients together in the blender. The milk will blend well and will become frothy thanks to the whip mode on your device. Poor in a mug and enjoy. Top with additional cinnamon should you wish!
