This post is brought to you by Vital Proteins, who sent me their Wild Caught Marine Collagen which I love because it’s complete unflavored and convenient for morning smoothie or post workout shake. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and is the key constituent of all connective tissues. Collagen provides the infrastructure for the muscular skeletal system and is essential for mobility. The peptides are easily digestible, and soluble in cold liquids. They promote healthier hair, stronger nails and vibrant skin. While we were compensated for the post, all opinions – as always – are our own. Thank you for supporting the companies that support YBC.
