To introduce some variety into our routine, we decided to create a collagen-infused smoothie.
Did you know that collagen is a protein? So, if you're concerned about the protein content of your smoothie, don’t. Our collagen adds an extra 10g of protein to the mix.
Originally crafted for an Omorovicza yoga event, this recipe aligns the two brands through the themes of beauty and our Collagen. We've carefully selected ingredients that promote the health and upkeep of radiant skin, lustrous hair, and strong nails.
Our Essa World Collagen is a premium hydrolyzed collagen, which means it undergoes a process breaking down large protein chains into smaller, more easily absorbable peptide chains. Research shows the positive impact of collagen dietary supplements on skin elasticity. To boost natural collagen production, we've enriched our product with vitamin C, while the added vitamin E protects cells against oxidative stress.
In addition to collagen, hyaluronic acid is naturally found in various bodily systems, including the skin, lymph, and blood, where it plays a vital role in maintaining structural integrity.
Bananas, packed with minerals and vitamins, serve as an exceptional energy source. Their quick digestibility means an almost immediate energy boost, and they also contain fructooligosaccharides, functioning as probiotics to enhance beneficial bacteria growth while safeguarding against harmful ones.
Chia seeds boast high mineral content, including magnesium, potassium, selenium, iron, and zinc, all contributing to the maintenance of healthy skin and hair. What’s more, they're rich in Omega-3 fatty acids.
Flaxseeds, in addition to their remarkable properties, are abundant in antioxidants, which support the well-being of your skin and hair.
Berry fruits, known for their heavenly taste, serve as exceptional sources of antioxidants. These not only play a vital role in preserving your health but also contribute to maintaining your beauty. Loaded with fiber, they assist in reducing cholesterol levels.
