Collagen + Vitamin C Smoothie For Youthful Skin

Collagen + Vitamin C Smoothie For Youthful Skin

Let's be real, we all want to look and feel younger and have youthful skin indefinitely. I contacted my Naturopath and read a bunch of medical journals and found out that the answer is collagen + vitamin C. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein and the building block of healthy skin, hair and nails. And vitamin C reverses the harmful effects of UV exposure on the skin by neutralizing free radicals. Interestingly though, vitamin C is essential for the synthesis of collagen. Taking a collagen supplement, without vitamin C, won't have the same impact. So I searched for the best collagen on the market and have been a fan-girl of Vital ProteinsWild Fish Marine Collagen. It is the purest source is high-quality marine collagen. It's odorless and tasteless. And I've paired that up with the two highest sources of vitamin C on the planet: CamuCamu and Lucama!

One teaspoon of Lucuma Powder is 12 times your daily needs! I've also added in South American superfood, Organic Camu Camu Powder, for B vitamins and subtle sweetness. You're going to LOVE this smoothie! It's the ultimate blend of collagen and vitamin C for youthful skin!
