My 6 Week Journey with Collagen

I’ll be the first to admit that six weeks ago, I was a supplement skeptic. I’ve taken supplements that work—I can prove via a blood test that my anemia was resolved by taking iron supplements. I’ve taken supplements that feel like I’m merely popping Skittles into my mouth (why did my parents feed me Flintstone Vitamins for, like, ten years?). All in all, supplements always felt hit or miss.

Six weeks ago, I began incorporating Sports Research Collagen Peptides into my daily routine. The consensus? 

It’s a total hit. 

What is Collagen?

Collagen is a protein responsible for 75 percent of your skin’s composition and one-third of the total protein in your body. It supports skin elasticity, healthy joints, and strong bones. 

Collagen Peptide supplements can be taken to…well, supplement the production of collagen within your body. 

Potential benefits of taking a collagen supplement include hydrated skin, osteoarthritis pain relief, thicker hair, and increased muscle mass. Supposedly, it helps you look better from the inside out. 

But does it actually work?

My Experience with Collagen Peptides

Supplements often take months to work, but within six weeks of taking Collagen Peptides, I noticed two key differences:

1. I RECOVERED FASTER FROM WORKOUTS.

I work out almost every day—doing sports that tend to be rough on my body. From skiing to rock climbing to lifting heavy weights, I’ve found over the years that my muscles become sore in places I didn’t even know could get sore. 

After mixing Collagen into my regular protein shakes, I noticed early on that my body is ready for more action sooner than it was prior to taking it.

 

2. MY SKIN STARTED GLOWING…SERIOUSLY. 

I suffer from hormonal acne, which typically doesn’t stick around longer than a week. What does—however—are the scars. 

Six weeks after taking Collagen, my skin scarred much less and feels much more “supple,” to quote my dermatologist. How cool is that?

I also love how easy it is to implement into my diet. Below is one of my favorite recipes:

OVERNIGHT OATS

Mix the following into a Tupperware container:

  • ½ cup of old-fashioned oats
  • ¾ cup of your milk of choice (I prefer oat milk)
  • 1 scoop of Vanilla Whey protein powder
  • 1 scoop of Vanilla or Unflavored Collagen Peptides
  • ½ tablespoon of chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon 

Cover the container and let it sit overnight. In the morning, add your favorite toppings—such as strawberries, bananas, sliced almonds, and/or almond butter.

Here are some more amazing recipes using Collagen Peptides:
