My favourite places to buy collagen and gelatine powder

Updated: Jun 6

Collagen powder would be one of my top 5 desert island supplements - as in, if I hypothetically were to get stuck on a desert island for an unknown length of time and I had to choose a handful of supplements to take with me, collagen powder is high on the list of priorities in my 'thrival' and survival.

My other desert island supplements would include vitamin c (although I expect to have easy access to vitamin c-rich fruits so this isn’t a dealbreaker; use code ASHIYA5 to get 5% off), activated charcoal (to detoxify any contaminants in case I accidentally eat something dodgy; use code ASHIYA5 to get 5% off), Saccharomyces Boulardii (well-researched for preventing and treating for gastrointestinal diseases), and finally, a good B-complex (can be difficult to attain enough through just foods and I think our requirements are underrated! Use code ASHIYA5 to get 5% off).

Back to collagen. Collagen (and gelatine) powder contain anti-inflammatory amino acids like proline, glycine, and arginine, which have pro-metabolic and pro-thyroid effects. A strong metabolism (i.e., how well our cells create and use energy) is the pinnacle marker of good health. A few signs of good metabolic health include warm fingertips and toes, good digestion, strong hair and nails, glowing skin, and generally having a happy and content temperament. The thyroid hormones affect EVERY SINGLE CELL of the body, which in my humble opinion makes thyroid hormones a little intimidating because symptoms related to thyroid dysfunction are V A S T. From insomnia, hair loss, and impaired memory, to coarse skin, muscle aches, and cold intolerance; a lot of health struggles do come down to some degree of thyroid dysfunction. Hence, anything that supports good thyroid function is a priority for me.
