This is just between us, mmkay?
As much as I joke about wearing pj’s at 2pm and accidentally leaving the house with makeup on only one eye, I actually do care about how I look.
For me, though, the most beautiful accessory isn’t found on a clothes rack. It’s health, radiating from within.
That’s why I’m doing a little challenge for myself, and I thought you might like to try it, too. Years ago, I read a Japanese study that was designed to study the effects of UV exposure. Researchers separated mice into three groups:
- Those who did were not exposed to UV light
- Those who were exposed repeatedly with increased intensity over time
- Those who were exposed repeatedly with increased intensity over time, AND WERE FED GELATIN
When results were measured, “mice exposed to the light without the gelatin had a 53% average decrease in the collagen content of their skin, compared to the mice that received no ultraviolet light exposure at all. Astonishingly, the mice that were exposed to the light, but also fed gelatin had no collagen decrease at all. They actually had an average collagen increase of 17%.” (source, original study, emphasis mine)
I know mice aren’t people, but I’ve always been curious about how six weeks of daily gelatin usage might improve my skin. I already use it often, but I’m not always consistent, so today I’m stocking up today and planning my start date.
If you want to try it, too, Vital Proteins is offering a special discount of 20% off right now. But here’s the deal: The sale ends in LESS THAN 24 HOURS, so you better get on it!
Unless your name is Morgan Sanders-Jackson, that is, because Vital Proteins will be stocking your pantry with $475 in grass-fed gelatin for free!
NOTICE: THIS SALE HAS ENDED
If you didn’t win, Vital Proteins has created a coupon code that brings the cost of their collagen protein below what you’re already paying for regular grass-fed gelatin. Shipping is FREE, so this is a great time to stock up.
And just to make sure you get exactly what you want, here’s the difference between the two:
Collagen Peptides = Dissolves in cold liquids. Does not gel at room temperature, which makes it great for mixing with water, smoothies, iced coffee and tea, freshly pressed juices, etc.
