Why I Supplement with Collagen

If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I love my morning smoothies and always include collagen in the mix! Collagen is the vital building block of our bodies including skin, hair, nails, bones and joints.

Our bodies cannot synthesize enough collagen on their own and our diets today contain minimal collagen. Read on for more of the amazing benefits of collagen and my quick and easy chocolate banana smoothie recipe!
