I love starting my day with Full Body Collagen! It’s a not only a great way to get a quick serving of protein in, but it also boosts your morning beauty routine by helping improve your skin’s elasticity (1) and strengthening your nails (2) and hair.
Getting your morning dose of collagen couldn’t be easier. Just add one scoop of Full Body Collagen to hot water, and stir! It will be flavorless and will dissolve easily allowing you to reap the protective benefits for your skin, joints and bones.
