what is collagen?

Approximately a third of your body’s protein is comprised of collagen. It is an incredibly important part of your health. In your body, what is made up of collagen? Skin, bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons contain collagen. As you can see, that’s a big portion of your body! Here’s a random fact: your gut health can also be supported by consuming collagen. Who knew? The body can absorb more nutrients if it has a healthy gut. If your body has the right nutrition, it is possible for your body to produce collagen. You need Vitamin C, proline, glycine, and copper for your body to make its own collagen. You can have all those nutrients but still, fall short. In addition to those, you also need a protein that contains the required amino acids for the body to make new proteins. You need each of these things in order to make collagen, and if something is missing, your body will struggle.

benefits of collagen

Adding collagen powder to your repertoire has so many benefits! Here are just a few to things  take into consideration when it comes to collagen: the quality of collagen produced by your body declines as you age; the ability for collagen to repair itself is interrupted by too much sugar and refined carbs; too much time in the sun (ultraviolet radiation) and smoking can reduce collagen production; collagen powder has also been known to keep people feeling full longer. Collagen supplements have endless benefits! They are known to improve hair, skin and nail health, joint and bone health, support a healthy gut lining and normal intestinal permeability, promote fat loss and lean muscle mass, improve liver function, protects your heart, is keto-friendly, and supports weight management. You can see how collagen supplements play a big role in your overall health.

1. Keto Vanilla Mug Cake

The Vanilla Super Collagen in this recipe gives it the recognizable cake flavor and consistency. Other mug cakes sometimes fall flat… literally! Ours will NOT disappoint. The sweet flavor is perfect, and it tastes just like cake! We are sure that you will agree this is an amazing dessert!

2. Keto Chocolate Chip Collagen Cookies

This recipe also uses the Super Collagen, as well as rich and flavorful cashew and coconut butter. The dough has an amazing cookie dough texture. These cookies end up being the best cookies with just the right amount of chocolate chips. These will definitely be a “go to” when you’re looking for a chocolate chip cookie alternative, and everyone will love them – whether or not they are living a low-carb lifestyle.

3. Keto Chocolate PB Cups

These are a great alternative to those peanut butter cups we all know and love. Unfortunately, the ones in the store are filled with all kinds of sugar and artificial ingredients. Just say NO! On the other hand, with only 7 all-natural ingredients, you can certainly say YES to our Keto Chocolate PB Cups! We believe that you will find these to be one of the best tasting peanut butter cups, ever!

4. Strawberry Shortcake Beauty Bombs

With only six ingredients, these are super easy to make. We’ve coined them “beauty bombs,” because of all the benefits the collagen delivers, but they are essentially a fruity fat bomb. As with the other recipes, the Vanilla Super Collagen provides just the right amount of sweetness that tastes like shortcake!

5. Easy PB Cookie Dough Fat Bombs

These fat bombs taste just like peanut butter cookies! The peanut butter, coconut oil, and coconut butter, combined with the Vanilla Collagen, creates a tasty fat bomb that can easily substitute for a cookie! You can optionally add in the chocolate chips if you want a little extra treat. Try making them both ways, as you might find that it’s not necessary to add the chocolate chips with how delicious these fat bombs turn out without them. (If you are like me, though, you’ll take advantage of any opportunity to enjoy a bit of chocolate!)
