Collagen—do you take it?

Finally found a collagen I can stand behind – and I’ll be honest, I’m a little over the moon about it.

While on a girls’ trip, I heard from one of my fellow vacationers how she was looking for a good collagen supplement. I never knew much about it until now. If my brand didn’t it make it, I wasn’t going to purchase it at the store—since who knows how long it’s been sitting on the shelf. 

Since that discussion, I’ve learned quite a bit about Collagen. Collagen’s main role is to provide structure, strength and support throughout your body. Your body produces less collagen as you age, and existing collagen breaks down at a faster rate. 

Did you know there are different kinds of collagen? I surely didn’t. I learned about four types of collagen from the Cleveland Clinic

Hydrolyzed Bovine Collagen—Though collagen can come from many different sources, bovine has been found to be the most potent and effective. Furthermore, when collagen is hydrolyzed it essentially means the amino acids within it have been broken down, so they’re easier for your body to absorb.

Marine Collagen—A problem with marine collagen is that you never know what you’re getting. “Marine” is a blanket term for any aquatic creature whether it be a jellyfish, shellfish, or shark — these sources are not easy for the body to absorb.

Liquid Collagen—Liquid collagen drinks tend to have a longer list of ingredients compared to powders. Additives and flavorings, whether artificial or natural, typically mean empty sugar calories. 

After learning this, I was wondering, what kind of collagen should I take?
NEW Vitality for Life Collagen has 10 grams of a proprietary collagen blend in every serving! This collagen boost supplement is clinically, proven to improve skin elasticity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles! This powder wins on potency, fewer additives, cost savings, and eco-friendly edge.

Here’s to aging gracefully! 

Here’s an exceptional example of how our collagen compares to the leading brands 

Cost of laundry detergent

I’m curious how much has the cost of you laundry detergent gone up since 2016?
Has the quality changed?

Since March 2016, the cost of my detergent has gone up a mere $1.50. With that said – the quality has also gone up. They just added 2 more enzymes (this month) to cut through more stains – WITHOUT raising the cost

How much fiber do you get a day?

The average American gets 8 grams of fiber a day when at a bare minimum we need 28 – 35 grams/day. Some health specialists will argue that we need 30 – 50 grams/day.

Fiber can prevent obesity and the chronic disease of aging. This is because fiber slows the rate at which food enters your bloodstream and increases the speed at which food exits your body through the digestive tract. That keeps your blood sugar and cholesterol in ideal balance and quickly eliminates toxins from your gut and reduces your appetite.

You’ll find soluble fiber in fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds, and most whole grains. The bacteria in your gut metabolizes the soluble fiber in these foods, and that’s when the benefits start.

Some facts about aspirin

I confidently told my surgeon “no” to an aspirin a day to prevent blood clots after surgery.  I’ll tell you why in a minute.
If you are taking an aspirin a day for whatever reason, research what is being said here:
According to The Paleo Cardiologist, Dr. Jack Wolfson, (Natural Heart Doctor) “On May 5, 2014, the FDA banned Bayer from recommending aspirin for the primary prevention of a heart or stroke. The FDA did not find evidence supporting aspirin use for those who have never had a heart attack or stroke.” 

He goes on to say, ” In addition to GI bleeding here a few other side effects of aspirin: 

  1. Increases uric acid, which can lead to gout, a painful form of arthritis. (When people are in pain they take more aspirin.) 
  1. Decreases kidney function. 
  2. Leads to blindness. aspirin increases the risk of “wet’ form of macular degeneration. 
  3. Increases the risk of blood clots in surgical patients. 
  4. Leads to hearing loss.” 

He also, states, the side effects of aspirin use for heart disease are far greater than the benefits, especially for women. All that is from Dr. Wolfson’s book 𝑇ℎ𝑒 𝑃𝑎𝑙𝑒𝑜 𝐶𝑎𝑟𝑑𝑖𝑜𝑙𝑜𝑔𝑖𝑠𝑡.

In 2004, I was introduced to Provex CV originally created by the R&D of my wellness manufacturer and Dr. John Folts, one of the discoverers of aspirin therapy for heart disease, a world leading authority on platelet behavior and cardiovascular disease, and the clinical researcher who has overseen the major testing of Provex CV for cardio health. 

At that time, he said Provex CV worked 59% better than an aspirin a day and twice as well as vitamin E for keeping the blood flowing. It has more helps:

When you know better, you do better – as the saying goes.


The first of 5 different ways to support your immune system is Daily nutrition and supplements. None of us get all we need from our daily diet. Even if you ate all the right proportions of protein, vegetables and fruits, you are still lacking because of the way most of our food is grown and processed. It is essential to find a quality supplement that your body can actually absorb.

I’ve been taking such a quality supplement for the last 20 years. It has 3 independent studies and a documented 85% absorption rate. You also need to be sure you are hydrating your body and at the same time providing it with essential electrolytes. It’s important to provide yourself and your family with healthy snacks and if you have to have a substitute for a meal, make sure your are picking one that is actually going to nourish your body. That’s why I take the Peak Performance Nutrition Pack (Longevity 50+) it works.
