When we decided to start Collagen For Her, we got a lot of questions from family, friends, and people on social media. What is collagen? What does it do? How do I take it? If you are still a little bit confused about collagen, don’t worry! You are not alone and of course, we have you covered! Here is everything you need to know about collagen.
What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. It is found in our muscles, bones, joints, and skin which is why it is often referred to as “the glue that holds our bodies together”. Without collagen, our bodies wouldn’t be able to perform a lot of its essential functions. Unfortunately, as we get older our bodies naturally start making less of it every year. A lack of collagen production could be a contributor to signs of aging such as wrinkles, thinning hair, slower metabolism, joint pain, and poor digestion.
What are the benefits of collagen?
There are so many amazing benefits of collagen including:
- Glowing hair, healthier skin, and stronger nails*
- Regulates digestion and boosts metabolism*
- Supports heart and liver health*
- Improves gut health and immune system*
- Reduces joint pain and degeneration*
What’s in it?
There is only one ingredient: collagen peptide powder. Collagen peptide powder is a flavorless and tasteless powder (think protein powder without the artificial flavors). When you take Collagen For Her collagen peptide powder you are providing your body with 18 amino-acids, eight of which are essential. With a high volume of glycine, lysine, and proline, collagen helps regenerate cell growth that tends to diminish as you enter adulthood.
Is it Healthy?

Collagen is the cleanest form of protein available so you can rest assured that you are feeding your body with a pure form of protein without any added chemicals or junk!
How Do I Use It?

We usually just add a scoop to the mix! Since it is a small amount of powder, we usually don’t have a problem with it mixing in :)

I never knew you could cook with collagen peptides! Protein pancakes are my go-to breakfast. What’s the best way to add collagen: Should I sub in CFH for part of the recipe’s dry ingredients, or just add 1-2 scoops of CFH to the mix?

With only one ingredient, collagen is the cleanest form of protein and has more amino acids that some other types of protein such as whey. Collagen For Her is flavorless so it can easily be mixed into any smoothies – I personally use both protein powder and collagen in my smoothies because I like the flavor of protein and the benefits (and extra protein) of collagen. But you can use it either way, by itself or with protein! Let us know if you have any other questions!

I already take protein powder and put it in my smoothies etc. after workouts. How is this different than protein powder? And is it best to take both, collagen and protein powder, or only one?
