You might be wondering what the benefits are to adding collagen to your smoothies …
Well it all starts at about age 35, when collagen production naturally begins to slow, which can have all sorts of negative effects on your body. By age 40, collagen begins to deplete faster than your body can reproduce it, and by age 60, over ½ of your body’s collagen has been depleted.
In addition to aging, many other factors impact collagen levels. These include genetics, smoking, pollution, excessive sun exposure, and nutritional deficiencies, among others.
Collagen is the “glue” that holds your body together.
It’s the fibrous protein found throughout your body, in organs, muscles, skin, hair, nails, teeth, bones, blood vessels, tendons, joints, cartilage, and your digestive system.
As we age and our collagen production decreases, these areas of our body begin to weaken. Adding a collagen supplement to your daily routine can help to strengthen your body for optimal health and functioning.
Here are some other ways you can easily add collagen to your diet …
Mix into a glass of water. For best results, add powder prior to adding water.
Mix into hot beverages like coffee and tea.
Add to soups, stews, sauces, yogurt, homemade desserts and more.

Beet & Blueberry Smoothie is the perfect smoothie recipe for the fall and winter.
According to Ayurveda beets are recommended during Vata season, which runs from October through March, as the bright and vibrant colors can help balance out the dryness and coldness of the season.
In addition, beets have many uses in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda including cleansing the liver, improving blood circulation and calming the mind and spirit.
They are also used as a natural remedy for a variety of ailments and have been traditionally used to treat conditions such as:
Irritability & restlessness
Smoothies are an easy way to add more beets to your diet–and to make things even easier, look for frozen or vacuum packed beets in your grocery store (find organic vacuum packed beets in the refrigerated section at Costco). They’ll save you lots of time since they’re already cleaned and cooked… just throw them into the blender.
