// collagen // I’ll admit when I first heard about the trend of supplementing collagen I wasn’t on board. It didn’t make sense to me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So naturally, I scoured the internet. Turns out, there’s fairly good research to back up it’s use for a number of reasons. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Data shows collagen is untaken twice as much in cartilage than individualized amino acids, making it a great option for joint pain, arthritis, prevention of injury, etc. 
It also has been shown to have impressive benefits on wrinkle reduction and skin heath. 
By far my favourite benefit has to be for your gut [read more in my latest blog]. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Follow the link in my profile as I de-bunk collagen and why everyone’s talking about in.

// PREBIOTICS // this week, let’s talk about the importance of digestive health, and what you can be doing to improve your gut’s integrity⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’ve all heard of taking probiotics, but what about helping out own flora? #Prebiotics are essential to feeding the beneficial microbiota in your gut. Think of it as Miracle Grow for the good guys 😉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Studies on the human #microbiome confirm that pectins found in Kiwis fruits promoted the growth of #Lactobacillus and #Bifidobacteria, which are the most desirable flora in our digestive tracts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Try consuming a few 🥝  with breakfast and see how your gut feels ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

// BONE BROTH // this week, let’s talk about the importance of digestive health, and what you can be doing to improve your gut’s integrity⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Bone broth is a rich source of gelatin, collagen, and the amino acids glycine and glutamine - all of which are critical to maintaining the tight junction in your gut, and managing/preventing intestinal permeability (aka #leakygut)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Increased intestinal permeability is correlated to numerous conditions such as food intolerances, eczema, and most autoimmune conditions like crohn’s/colitis, hashimoto’s, alopecia, etc.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I typically advise 250 ml bone broth per day. Follow the link in my profile for my homemade #bonebroth recipe 🥣 🍖 🍲 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Tonight’s meal courtesy of @nupasta 🍝 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’ve all been there - life gets busy and meal prep suffers, which usually leads to nutritionally void, high calorie takeout. Thankfully Nupasta’s Konjac noodles are only 25 kcal, zero net carbs, shelf-stable, and are precooked, making it a quick, convenient and easy meal!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tossed with some homemade tomato sauce and done 👌🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Best part, they’re gluten free and Keto friendly 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

SKIN CARE // what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s a common question - “what do you recommend for makeup brands?” Honestly, there’s so many brands out there, it can be overwhelming.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The most important things to look for when choosing a make up product is to make sure it’s free of PEGs, Talc powders, parabens, and synthetics. Cruelty free is also a must for me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Recently I’ve been loving @nudebynatureca, as it meets all of these requirements, without compromising quality. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What’s your go to natural makeup brands and why?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
