Collagen and Why I Choose Poofy Organics

Annnnnnnd, a HUGE weekend sale coming up, read til the end for all the details!

I’m not an expert on collagen, but started using it after seeing others share the positive results they were seeing in their skin, nails and hair. At 42 my hair was increasingly getting thinner, so I was curious if collagen would help with that. And after I read all the other benefits it purports I knew it certainly wouldn’t hurt anything!

Some background info, from Poofy’s product description on the website (link is below): Collagen is a fibrous protein that serves as an important building foundation for skin, tendons, joints, other connective tissues and bones. Additionally, collagen helps keep skin, bones, teeth and blood vessels healthy. Dissolves in hot or cold beverages. Unflavored, grass fed and kosher. Collagen, the production of which declines as we age, adds many benefits to human health including: 
– Contains short chains of amino acids.
– Supporting bone repair
– Protection against or delaying symptoms associated with neurological disorders
– Repairing leaky gut
– Helping balance blood sugar
– Preventing joint pain

What else can collagen do?

  • RICH IN PROTEIN & AMINO ACIDS: Collagen naturally contains 18 essential amino acids and is packed with 7g of protein per serving
  • LOOK & FEEL YOUNGER: Decrease fine lines and wrinkles while mobilizing joints and cartilage
  • JOINTS, HAIR, SKIN, NAILS: Collagen proteins are different from other proteins. They’re vital for joint function and flexibility, muscle tone, energy and endurance, nail and hair growth, skin tone, digestion, liver function, wound healing, detoxification, natural sleep and much more!

Collagen has no reported “side effects”. Again, can’t hurt, YAY!!!!

My personal experience is this: As I mentioned above, my hair had really thinned down over the years. This was my 1st update after 4m of mostly daily use (I began in Nov 2021): I feel my nails are healthier, and my hair is growing more quickly and is healthier. I also was having issues with an achy elbow that I was *this* close to going to PT for, as it was nagging me for months, but just when I was about ready to go to the appt, it started feeling better (I had x-rays to rule out serious injury). I can’t be 100% certain this was due to the collagen, it’s correlatory, but it does have really beneficial properties for your joints, etc. And without any other intervention, it’s now healed. 2nd update (May 2022): It has now been 6m since I started almost daily use (I add a 2nd scoop if I have a 2nd cup of coffee or tea in the afternoon, maybe 3x/week) and I really, truly am happy with how thick my hair is. I feel like it has reversed ~5 years of loss/thinning. My nails are strong, my achy elbow has not returned, and I know it’s doing a bunch of good internally that I can’t necessarily measure.

I add it to my coffee or tea, cannot taste a thing. My Hubby had to do IT work in an ag-processing plant years ago, and is forever scarred of the smell associated with being there. They processed meat, made collagen and a bunch of other stuff. So he’s always had this fear of collagen tasting terrible, like the smell he associates with that place. He was super reluctant, but agreed after 1st try, couldn’t taste a thing. He takes it for the protein and because he’s super actively working out on a regular basis, lifting weights, working on building muscle mass, etc (in addition to his regular active daily stuff). He’s also aware of the need to keep his joints & bones healthy as he ages, and desires the positive gut health properties.

 If you prefer flavor, you may add in one of the USDA Certified Organic FLAVOR BURSTS. Flavors to choose from include: Birthday Cake, Caramel Swirl, Chocolate Milk & Fruit Punch. ($5 extra, flavors the 30 serving pack)

A few recent testimonials from my Poofy by Jess group:

Kristin:  I feel like the collagen has improved my digestion issues so I continue to take it daily. I also figure I can use all the anti-aging properties daily as well! It’s seriously the best one out there!

Shannon: I’ve added it to smoothies for the protein and it doesn’t have any taste or weird texture when added to things which I greatly appreciate.

Julianna: Some people say taking collagen supplements isn’t helpful but I’ve always noticed a huge difference! And I trust poofy to use good ingredients and practices in making it.

Ania: I am starting to love it as well! Using already a month and see a big difference. After giving birth 20 months ago my knees got very weak and many times, once I squat, I can’t stand up without supporting myself somehow. Initially thought it’s a temporary thing, postpartum related, but it become ongoing problem and my knees never really recovered nor got back to normal. Now, there are days that I forget I have knees at all! To be fully transparent I also take minerals from Fulvic & Humic Acid, but on its own they did not do much.

Poofy’s includes the following 5 TYPES OF COLLAGEN:
TYPE I: Anti-aging, skin elasticity, glowing skin & hydration, strong & shiny hair & nail growth, healthy digestion & gut health
TYPE II: Contains glucosamine & hyaluronic acid for healthy joints & stronger cartilage
TYPE III: Aids cardiovascular system & skin health
TYPE V: Supports joints & bones and healthy cartilage.
TYPE X: helps with new bone formation in cartilage

And while many of us have years of experience trusting Poofy products, you don’t *just* have to take my/their word that it’s the best out there. 3rd party testing is very important, and Poofy shares that info with us here: ReviveSpecSheet.pdf (poofyorganics.com)

Another potential issue is glyphosate (round-up) residue. It sneakily makes its way into SO many products these days. I 1st learned of the potential for collagen to contain glyphosate from a fellow group member who informed me of this: “since glyphosate residue is stored in bones and collagen. That is the reason why I stopped making bone broth.” She asked if Poofy’s had been tested and I was able to provide the fantastic information that it tested ND (Non Detect):
