What’s inside Pumpkin Spice with Collagen?
Collagen is a protein that is naturally produced in our bodies — it’s actually the most abundant protein — and it makes up about a third of the total protein in our bodies, 70% of which is found in our skin. Collagen is the building block for healthy everything: hair, skin, and nails, bones, joints, gut, ligaments… the list goes on and on.
And that’s not all: Pumpkin Spice with Collagen is loaded with other superfood ingredients! Check out some of our faves here:
Pumpkins scream fall — from decor, to lattes, to pies, and everything in between. But what many people don’t know is that pumpkin also provides a myriad of functional benefits to the human body. Pumpkin is a great source of potassium — which helps to minimize muscle cramps, as well as alleviate high blood pressure. High in fiber, pumpkin can also aid in smooth digestion, and slow the rate of sugar absorption into the bloodstream.
Ginger root, first discovered in Asia, not only tastes great with sushi, but has also been used for centuries to heal ailments. Ginger is closely related to turmeric and cardamom and contains potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Today, ginger is used in a variety of ways to help heal common issues with the human body — including nausea, muscle soreness, and high cholesterol levels.
Cinnamon has been used for thousands of years, with a variety of uses ranging from cooking and flavoring to medicinal practices. This ancient spice has widespread health benefits including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory power, heart health, brain function, dental health, and skin health. Fun fact, the use of cinnamon dates all the way back to Ancient Egypt more than 4,000 years ago.
This seasonal superstar is packed with fiber, potassium, and vitamin B6 — which is great for the functionality of your nervous and immune systems! Plus, it has over four times the daily amount of vitamin A, and half the recommended daily amount of vitamin C!
Lemon juice is a powerhouse ingredient — and when used in combination with the other ingredients in Pumpkin Spice, it augments their functional benefits! Lemon juice is a good source of vitamin C, which can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, as well as prevent illness. Additionally, vitamin C helps to prevent dry skin when consumed in combination with plenty of water.
We’re counting down the days until we can rake leaves and go apple picking, but in the meantime, we’ll be sipping on Whole30 Approved Pumpkin Spice with Collagen! We like to drink it chilled while the weather is still warm, and we’ll be heating it up in a bowl as winter approaches. We can’t wait to hear what you think!
