Never underestimate a wellness editor’s morning routine. Even as someone who solidly identifies as a night person (and is known to bemoan the sunrise), I’ve exacted a ritual that works for me and my body, skin, and mood. After all, we editors spend countless hours researching, talking with experts, and homing in on our routines so we can look and feel our best—before sharing that information with you.
And that goes for a nutrient-packed breakfast, too. So what do three mbg wellness editors reach for come morning? Well, one of the common themes is beauty & gut collagen+. The collagen peptide supplement comes with 17.7 grams of grass-fed bovine collagen peptides, which are naturally rich in amino acids to promote healthy skin, hair, and nails, as well as a healthy intestinal lining.* (Learn all about how in our guide to collagen supplementation.) But the powder contains so much more than that, too. There are vitamins C and E, which are antioxidants that support collagen synthesis and cross-linking.* Hyaluronic acid enhances skin moisture and texture, as well as reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.* Biotin, a B vitamin, plays an important role in maintaining healthy hair.* Turmeric and SGS have anti-inflammatory properties. And finally L-glutamine for optimizing gut health.* Pretty well rounded, no?
Read on for how you can incorporate your collagen supplement into your morning routine effortlessly.
