Two Delicious Collagen Powder Recipes For Glowing Skin

As we get older, our natural collagen levels start depleting, which is why so many people are turning to collagen supplements for glowing skin and healthy hair. 

Collagen is a protein that is found almost everywhere in our bodies: skin, tendons, ligaments, bone, cartilage, blood vessels, teeth and more. This protein makes up 80 percent of the skin, and its fibres give skin its firmness and strength. Collagen naturally breaks down in our bodies over time but by taking a supplement you can help your body to keep up its Collagen levels. Collagen is made up of essential amino acids which help keep connective tissue, hair, skin and nails healthy.

Adding a collagen powder to your diet can be as simple as swirling a few scoops into your morning coffee. But that's not the only way you can consume it: Collagen powders are really easy to mix into other smoothies, snacks, and even full-blown meals. Here are two delicious recipes to up your intake—plus these options are loaded with other skin-loving nutrients, like antioxidants and other inflammation fighters. Glow on.
