Collagen jelly for healthy joints

.

Rescription for 1 serving

.

Ingredients:

.
  • water 150 g (2/3 cup) 
  • .
  • gelatin 10 g (2 teaspoons)
  • .
  • Natu.Care Collagen Premium 5000 mg, mango-maracuja
  • .
  • vanilla syrup 60 g (3 tbsp)
  • .
  • raspberries 40 g (handful)
  • .

Preparation:

  • Dissolve the gelatine in water, set aside for a minute, then heat slightly in a saucepan/microwave (be careful not to boil it as it will lose its gelling properties). 
  • Pour the collagen into a tall glass of water, mix thoroughly and add the dissolved gelatine.
  • .
  • Place in the fridge for a few hours to set the jelly
  • .
  • Place the vanilla skyr and a handful of raspberries on top of the jelly
  • .

This jelly is a great source of proline - an amino acid that helps rebuild joint cartilage, which will work well for intensive exercisers and older people. Raspberries are a treasure trove of vitamin C, which will further aid collagen absorption. They also have a high satiety index and pair deliciously with vanilla cream.

  1. Prepare several portions at once, and if you've made one - keep an eye on it! It can disappear quickly from the fridge...

Why should you supplement with collagen?

.

After 25 years of age the body's natural production of collagen begins to declineand. This is a natural process in the body. This is why the first wrinkles appear and the skin loses firmness . This is the moment to consider collagen supplementation.

Taking fish collagen for three months positively affects the appearance of hair, skin and nailsand. Collagen is also an ally of joints, bone and muscles  - to keep you fit and active for as long as possible.
