Collagen. Collagen. Collagen. It’s been popping up all over my social media feed lately, with all of my fav mama muses raving about its benefits – particularly how it totes makes your skin glow (which is a must for us mums who are running on zero sleep!). It’s also amazeballs for your hair and nails, and can help with stretch marks too. Hallelujah!
With 30% of your entire body’s protein made from collagen and your skin (which can be considered the largest organ of the human body) made up of over 75% collagen, it’s defo something we need to be working into our beauty regime.
But whilst collagen is well known for helping restore your body’s youthful appearance, the benefits are more than skin deep. This naturally occurring protein is the key building block that supports our goddess bods – especially postpartum. In fact, taking 2.5g to 10g of Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides every day for four to 12 weeks boosts the moisture content and elasticity of our skin, smoothing out those fine lines and stretch marks.
In the MD® office, we have religiously been snacking on Krumbled Foods Beauty Bites – which, let me tell you, are a total #musthave for mums on the go. These delish collagen healthy snacks contain 3800mg of pure Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides I & III from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine… nearly double what’s in most sachets and other collagen bars. So nomming on one Beauty Bites a day will have you getting your glow back after six weeks, girlfriend.
They also contain nine essential amino acids and 97% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C (which is essential to help maintain healthy hair, skin and nails), and 1 Billion CFUs of Probiotics combined with the vital benefits of added Prebiotics. So stash some of these guilt-free treats in your baby bag to get your health and beauty fix on the run! Now THAT’s what I call a multi-tasking mama! The Beauty Bites range has six yum flavours, which you can grab online, at Coles and Priceline Australia, plus right now you can score 20% off Beauty Bites with the code MAMA20.
