In this video, I walk you through what collagen peptides are, where we source ours from, and the research behind the benefits so you know why I use this daily – and you can see if it would be beneficial to you!
Betty Rocker’s Morning Collagen Beauty Tonic:
- 1 serving Full Body Collagen
- 8-10 oz water, boiled
- 1-2 slices fresh lemon
- 1 knuckle fresh ginger, minced
- 2-4 tsp apple cider vinegar (to taste)
- Add 1 serving of Full Body Collagen to your mug.
- Pour hot water over the top, and stir to combine.
- Squeeze in fresh lemon, add minced ginger and add apple cider vinegar to taste.
- Allow to steep briefly to drinking temperature. Enjoy!
In this video, I was actually traveling and had brought my collagen with me. Since I didn’t have all the ingredients for my morning tonic, I simplified by adding some fresh lemon to my collagen in water. Which tastes exactly like lemon water.
Whole Betty: Full Body Collagen is an unflavored, high-quality collagen peptide supplement that has great research behind it showing the benefits for our skin, joints and bones.
We source our collagen from grass-fed German cows, which have not been treated with antibiotics or hormones, and are never exposed to GMO’s.
Each serving of Full Body Collagen contains 12.5g of collagen peptides, and each canister contains 30 servings.
