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):

Awesome news is that this collagen will be a whopping 40% off during Poofy’s 3-day Beauty From the Inside Out sale! The Sale will be starting May 28th at 12:01 AM Eastern, and ends May 30th at 11:59PM Eastern.

Adaptogens vs Modulators

One thing I want to start doing more of is moving really good Q & A that come up in my closed group page over to this site. This was the question: Anyone who is well studied on adaptogens? I love Poofy’s super shroom… is that considered an adaptogen? I’m looking at CHOQ and wondering what’s the difference and should I take both?

While I don’t necessarily want to give out medical advice here, I wanted to share the info that was shared regarding the topic in general. I wasn’t entirely sure on the difference between modulators and adaptogens myself. But I shared this article that I reference frequently regarding immune stimulators vs modulators, you can read it here. I was glad a college-trained herbalist in my group who is my go-to for advice on topics such as this weighed in. Here’s what she said regarding the difference: modulator refers to the immune system. Adaptogen refers to your adrenals and stress/nervous system response. Nice thing about mushrooms is that they are both modulators and adaptogens.

I’m a huge fan of Poofy’s Super Shrooms myself! I don’t take any supplements daily, but I do take the Super Shrooms several times/week. Growing up, and actually into my 30’s I did not like to eat mushrooms at all, I picked them out of any dish. But I’ve come to appreciate them now! But I was a bit leery of how this tincture would taste, if it tasted like a dried up mushroom I was afraid I wouldn’t enjoy it. But the good news is, it pretty much tastes like alcohol, with a little bit of chocolate flavor even. It tastes nothing like mushrooms. It does burn a bit, but I’ve found I can tolerate it now. I just hold it under my tongue as long as I possible can (about 30 seconds).

I have come to have SO much respect for mushrooms not just on burger with fried onions, but for their plethora of medicinal powers. They truly are amazing little powerhouses! Here’s some info about Poofy’s Super Shrooms blend, and if you click on the link at the bottom you can read more about the particular mushrooms selected. Also, for a LOT more info go to PubMed and do some reading, there is a ton of info.

triple extraction process contains 14 different mushrooms! Take around 100 days to make this tincture!
1. Mushrooms are fermented to make the polysaccharides, triterpenoids and alkaloids more bioavailable. 
2. Hot water extraction, because polysaccharides are only water soluble
3. 90 days in alcohol, because triterpenoids are only alcohol soluble.  

Ingredients: Organic Cane Alcohol, Filtered Water, Mushroom Blend (Organic Reishi, Organic Cordyceps, Organic Chaga, Organic Mesima, Organic Lion’s Mane, Organic Turkey Tail, Organic Maitake, Organic Shitake, Organic Agaricus Blazei, Organic Poria, Organic Agarikon Suehirotzake, Organic Oyster, Organic True Tinder Polypore), Organic Myceliated Brown Rice (food for the mycelium)

I offer a 10% rebate on all 1st time orders as a thank you for registering as my customer., and EVERY order after that earns a 5% rebate! What you do: go to ‘login’ then ‘create customer account’ using my link. Then complete your order, shipping is free over $55. Afterwards, send me an email with your order # and let me know how you’d like the rebate, options are: PayPal, Venmo, check, Poofy gift certificate towards a future order.

Here are a few sales I wanted to draw your attention to:

POOFY ORGANICS: 15%, No code needed, but you must be logged in as a customer to see those 15% off prices reflected. On top of that, I am offering a 5% rebate off your subtotal if you use my link. Create a customer account by going to login>create account. Shoot me a message or email after you order (ecofriendlymamausa@gmail.com), and let me know if you want your additional 5% back via: check, PayPal, gift certificate. I will also be giving away 10 $20 gift certificates, selected randomly after the Black Friday-Cyber Monday sale weekend is over. My link: https://ecofriendlyusa.poofyorganics.com/

PURE PLAY KIDS:  Will I be having a Black Friday weekend sale via Pure Play Kids? No, I will not. I strive to offer items NOT available on Amazon. I take pride in signing Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) agreements with my vendors. Meaning we all agree to the same price, no one undercuts to gain more sales. I offer $6.95 flat rate shipping, always, and at that rate I lose on every order as only a flat rate envelope can ship for that much.

I have what I will have for the holiday season stocked. I will not be ordering anything else. The Pure Play Originals are all extremely limited, once those are gone, they are gone forever, almost all are down to less than a dozen items.
So, I hope you’ll keep me in mind when you’re doing your holiday shopping. Your purchase helps ensure other small businesses keep doing what they’re doing. It breaks my heart when I go to re-order from a business that the former Pure Play owners used to order from, and I learn they no longer exist… Every purchase is a vote, and I appreciate YOUR vote for made in USA quality items. https://pureplaykids.com/

BAREFOOT BOOKS: I am hosting a Barefoot Books online event. This weekend will feature 25% off + free shipping on orders $60+. The books are not printed in the U.S, but they have a strong sustainability mission, and I ADORE the books. We have a lot of them, they make up most of our curercnt library, and I cannot wait to add more. Here’s my link: https://www.barefootbooks.com/events/view/22890/jess-brandt/?bf_affiliate_code=000-25ae-22890&fbclid=IwAR2WyAMCfc3l7peA0I4KDf6RizRMP5qzJesBTExVleo0jSUn8pGlHa–fjs
