Go Dairy Free - Review by Alisa Fleming

Honestly, the concerns of aging hadn’t really hit me, but when a friend in the natural food industry brought Collagen MD to my attention, I took it as a sign to start paying attention. I do exercise regularly to keep my muscles, bones, and tendons strong and my skin healthy, but a little insurance never hurts. Plus, I’m past 35, and know that my body is now breaking down more rapidly than in the younger years, and I don’t want to go down without a fight!
Collagen MD gluten-free and dairy-free Advanced Connective Tissue Formula is a powder supplement that is formulated with an “anti-aging” blend of highly-bioavailable collagen type I & III peptides, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, folic acid, biotin and vitamin B12. They recommend mixing it with juice or water (you aren’t supposed to take it with any type of protein), but all-fruit smoothies or ones with coconut milk beverage or coconut milk yogurt are also delicious ways to enjoy it! I always use frozen fruit for a very creamy delight. See my Healthy Skin Smoothies post for some fun recipe blends.
Does it work? I’ve trialed this product for several months with great success! I’ve noticed strengthening in my nails and hair follicles (my hair falls out more easily with the hard water we have here, but it has slowed quite a bit), and a minor nagging tendon injury magically healed.
