The Problem with Collagen
If you’ve been on the internet lately, or even in your local Target, you’ll see and hear that powdered COLLAGEN is rising in popularity. I’ve heard friends and coworkers add this to their smoothies and they all say it boosts your own skin, hair, and nail growth and strength,
I am hear to let you know,
You are drinking powdered cow skin.
Yes, that is correct. Look at the back of one of these containers and you’ll see the word “hide.” Where else is that word used? In the LEATHER industry.
So please somebody tell me;
HOW DOES DRINKING DEAD COW SKIN BETTER YOUR OWN LIVING SKIN?
Okay, so why do I care so much? Because it’s a scam! These products DO NOT build your own collagen production. I learned this fact month ago, but still I hear so many people talking about the ‘benefits’ it offers.
I have found a VEGAN option that actually works. It’s called the Skin Elixir and it’s plant based and full of biotin, which what you actually need to grow stronger hair, skin, and nails. I’ve been drinking this from 3 weeks and MY NAILS YOU GUYS, they have NEVER grown this long without flaking or breaking and I’m seriously in awe. I have been a nail biter my entire life and i think my recent switch in nutrition has not only allowed my anxiety to settle, causing less nail biting-but then in combination with the Skin Elixir. GAME CHANGER.
