This Powerful New Beauty Supplement Combines Matcha With Collagen
We, for one, love effective and health-minded beauty supplements. There's just something about treating our hair, skin, and nails from the inside-out that seems preferable to relying on multiple creams, lotions, and serums to achieve the same results.
There are a number of new supplements currently surfacing on our radar. The first one is from Gwyneth Paltrow's beauty brand. It combines a number of antioxidant-rich ingredients to slow aging and the effects of environmental pollution on the skin. The second is a collagen supplement that promises to boost the health of bones and joints while increasing the luster and strength of hair, skin, and nails.
As of today, though, there's a new one that blends antioxidant power with collagen benefits. It does this by combining matcha green tea with collagen peptides harvested from grass-fed bovine. Keep scrolling to learn more about this matcha collagen supplement.
Vital Proteins Matcha Collagen ($49)
Vital Proteins specializes in collagen supplementation products. In fact, we've tried—and loved—the brand's products several times before (this includes the collagen supplement we spoke about earlier).
The newest supplement from the brand, though, is unique. Collagen peptides, which promise to aid in skin, nail, hair, joint, and bone health, are combined with matcha, which is the form of green tea with the highest level of antioxidants. The third and final ingredient is coconut water powder, which adds a little sweetness. Overall, it's free from dairy, soy, gluten, and added sugars.
According to the brand, each serving of this matcha powder contains 10 grams of protein and 20 grams of L-theanine, a powerful antioxidant. This is important, considering that antioxidants have been shown to slow the aging process, fight free radicals, and even defend against certain viruses. Simply stir in a glass of hot or cold water and drink to absorb all the benefits. You can also add it to baked goods and nut milk (matcha latte, anyone?).
