Someone mentioned Vital Proteins collagen peptides to me as an alternative to bone broth when I wasn’t feeling well enough to make it.
I started it 10 months in to chronic urticaria and blister eczema taking over my body. Desperate for relief, I was also doing Maca Root powder to help with my subclinical hypothyroid diagnosis, and I recently started CBN.
I’ve had 4 days of relief as I write this but, in addition to it helping the things I mentioned above…
- my hair is more shiny and my nails are not snapping off (helped, I’m sure by the maca)
- my cellulite is reducing, skin firming up.
- It also suppresses my appetite – which, for some is good but, for me, I’m keeping an eye on the scale because keeping weight on was a challenge for most of my life.
I recommend going slow with this if you have chronic illness. Start with a teaspoon and work your way up to the scoop, giving yourself at least 4 or 5 days between increases to make sure your stomach adjusts.
