I have been on the collagen wagon for about 6 months now and I’m not getting off any time soon! I’m not going to lie, when I first started putting collagen in my coffee I just grabbed it off the shelf from Costco because I saw on someone’s IG that it was good for nails which at the time were horrendous. I did zero research on the brand or quality…silly, I know. Like anything you’re putting into your body it is SUPER important to do your research.
Fast forward 3 months and I stumbled across withinUs Tru Marine Collagen which had the following symbols clear as day on the front of their containers:
Bovine, Fowel & Swine FREE
These were all things that I had never thought about in the past… again, so silly! I could go on forever about how withinUs is different from hundreds of other collagen brands but instead I’ll link some important information here and here and if you’re interested you can do a little reading!
Upon chatting about taking collagen on my IG stories I had a tonne of you ask why I was taking it. Like I mentioned before, I truthfully only started taking it because I once saw that Kim Kardashian did and let’s be honest, I wanna look like her at 39 so why wouldn’t I?! Haha! But, upon further research here are some of the benefits from taking collagen daily:
- minimizes fine lines and deep wrinkles
- improves lean muscle gain
- enhances bone strength and flexibility
- restores join health and bone density
- strengthens hair and nails
- improves post-workout recovery
- repairs UV induced skin damage
- increases skin hydration, elasticity, and vitality
WithinUs has an array of products from unflavoured collagen for your coffee to Matcha and Plant Protein. Not only do these taste delicious (or flavourless in some cases) they’re also all free from carbs, fat, dairy, lactose, gluten, soy, artificial colours, flavours, additives, stabilizers or preservatives!
I have been wanting to share withinUs with you all for a while now, but I am so excited to be sharing it with you now because for the month of October, withinUs is hosting a GIVE-BACK promotion in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
