Why add collagen?
Whether you decide to whip up your own blend or follow one of these delicious recipes, you shouldn't wait to level up your drink with collagen powder. (The creamy texture alone is enough of a reason to give it a go.) And mbg's beauty & gut collagen+, in particular, has a bounty of beauty benefits.*
To name a select few: It promotes skin elasticity and hydration, supports healthy hair and nails, enhances skin moisture and smoothness, and helps protect cells from oxidative stress and photoaging (which can show as fine lines and wrinkles).* mbg's cutting-edge blend also contains vitamins C and E for enhanced collagen production and antioxidant support, hyaluronic acid for skin hydration, the protein building block L-glutamine, biotin for your beauty needs, and curcumin from turmeric extract and sulforaphane from broccoli seed extract for supporting detoxification and combating oxidative stress.*
We know, that was a lot of info (our collagen powder has quite the robust formula!), so here's a full breakdown of our collagen's benefits for skin, hair, joints, and more.*
Though you may not have known it was National Smoothie Day, why not take advantage of the celebration? These recipes and measurements are pretty general, so feel free to tweak them wherever you see fit (just don't forget to add a scoop of mbg's collagen powder for extra creaminess and beauty benefits).* Looking to add a crunch? Top off your blend with some homemade granola.
