beauty & gut collagen+
"I am all about beauty from the inside out."
Professional makeup artist and founder of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics
A powerful daily ritual for glowing skin and strong hair & nails*
So why would I be raving over this supplement? Simply, because it works.
With a base of grass-fed, pasture-raised hydrolyzed bovine collagen, it is easily absorbed by the body and enhances our skin cells' production of collagen and elastin.*
mindbodygreen’s blend includes biotin, L-glutamine (aka building block for protein), natural moisturizer hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C, a vital part of collagen synthesis—your body can't adequately produce collagen without it. This comprehensive and holistic formula is supported by vitamin E to help stabilize vitamin C in the body, in addition to being a potent antioxidant, along with botanicals turmeric and sulforaphane glucosinolate, to assist in fighting free radicals.*
Our beauty and gut collagen+ formula
What's in the supplement
Collagen peptides are naturally rich in amino acids and support healthy skin, hair, and nails, as well as a healthy intestinal lining. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. As a critical building block, collagen peptides also help support healthy bones, muscles, joints, and blood vessels. We source collagen from grass-fed, pasture-raised cows.*
Hyaluronic acid is well-known for its role in enhancing skin moisture and texture, as well as reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It serves as a cushion or lubricant in the joints and other tissues, and helps retain moisture in the skin.*
VITAMINS C & E
Vitamin C is required for collagen production, which supports healthy skin, hair, nails, and gut. Vitamin E is an essential fat-soluble vitamin important for normal collagen cross-linking. Sun exposure and aging increase the need for antioxidants, and vitamins C and E are well-known antioxidant nutrients that scavenge free radicals and combat oxidative stress to help maintain healthy skin and gut health, while promoting healthy aging.*
Biotin, an essential water-soluble B vitamin, plays an important role maintaining healthy hair, skin and nails. It is also needed to convert nutrients into energy and support healthy glucose metabolism.*
L-glutamine is an amino acid and essential building block of many tissues and proteins in the body, including collagen, which supports healthy hair, skin and nails. Glutamine is also a critical nutrient for the cells in our gut, supporting a healthy intestinal lining.*
TURMERIC & SULFORAPHANE GLUCOSINOLATE
Turmeric is a botanical root loaded with curcuminoids, including curcumin. Sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS) is a phytochemical found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli. Turmeric, curcumin, and SGS have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. They support detoxification, combat oxidative stress, and help protect the skin from photoaging and support a healthy gut.*
Bobbi Brown's beauty iced hot chocolate recipe
All of these benefits are only made better by that rich chocolate taste I mentioned earlier — and it’s all thanks to real, organic cocoa and monk fruit. (You won’t find any added sugars or fake flavors here.) I reach for this everyday around 4PM when I’m hungry, tired, and craving something sweet. I like to turn it into a delicious iced hot chocolate.
I add one cup milk (oat, almond or even full-fat coconut milk) to my Nespresso milk frother along with a scoop of the chocolate flavor.
Pour over ice and enjoy! (If I’m in the mood for something really chocolatey, I’ll even add a little cacao.)
In just a few minutes I have a creamy iced hot chocolate. It’s a healthy afternoon snack that doesn’t make you crash.
If you’re not an iced hot cocoa person, try it in a smoothie. There’s also an unflavored version for when you’re not in the mood for chocolate.
What customers are saying about beauty and gut collagen+
Wow. My skin is prone to dryness and since being pregnant, has been amplified. I've almost finished my first jar of mbg collagen and have noticed a big difference in the health of my skin!*
It’s great because it's so easy to incorporate into my day and routine. I have loved making my morning smoothie with the mbg’s collagen, and even made healthy fiber waffles with it too! I have noticed the biggest difference in my skin--the texture has improved dramatically and it feels super hydrated and plump. I have also noticed my hair feeling softer (even my husband noticed) and my nails are stronger. I love this product!*
I loved taking mindbodygreen’s unflavored collagen! It’s tasteless and blends with zero clots into my smoothies and teas. I was also psyched to see that this collagen is so high quality-- it's important to me to know that what I'm putting into my body has been thoroughly tested for contaminants and heavy metals. Bring on another year of dewy, heal thy, youthful skin? Yes, please.*
I have used this product for almost two months. I definitely feel like I am seeing a difference in my nails and skin. I feel really good and I don't know what else to say except it is also encouraging me to make delicious smoothies daily....so that I can put the collagen into it. I have also sprinkled it on my popcorn and well as in my eggs. It has no taste but when heated, if you put too much, it will chunk a bit...so be mindful of that. Definitely the best way to use is in smoothies....really love this and will continue to use. My skin looks better than ever and my nails appear to be growing in suddenly stronger.*
Collagen supplements are all the rage in the beauty space: I've tried a few here and there. It's one of those things I know I should add to my routine. After trying this, I found the one that will actually make me stick to a habit. I learned I can add it to my morning coffee, which has been a game-changer. After regular use, my nails started feeling stronger and my skin healthier. I'm also trying to grow my hair out even longer, so I'll be eager to see how this will help my hair health-long term.*
