Collagen...anytime, anyplace, anywhere!

I don’t know about you, but my time at home during the pandemic kind of made me forget how busy life can actually be. I mean, before lockdown, how did I manage to balance work, family, and wellness and still have time to binge-watch my favorite TV show? 


As I relearn to balance my life while being constantly on the go, I have found it incredibly helpful to find and stick to daily habits that contribute to my wellness. Collagen supplements have been a part of my daily routine for a while now, but unlike last year, I don’t always have the time to get creative with how I am taking it. The good news? You don’t have to get creative unless you want to!

I have found that the easiest way for me to take Collagen Hydrolysate is to mix it into my beverages. Whether I am adding the Vanilla Collagen to my morning coffee or smoothie, taking Collagen Endurance Plus before a workout, or enjoying Chai Collagen in my afternoon tea, I know I am adding to my overall wellness without the hassle - it’s perfect for those of us who are on the go.

I choose convenience because I want to make sure I stick with my supplements every day, but these products are versatile and can be added to most cooking and baking recipes. 

If you are sitting there thinking to yourself, “wow, I really wish there was a chart or a table that better shows how to incorporate products into my routine,” YOU ARE IN LUCK! We aren’t mind readers here at Great Lakes, but we did want to make sure you had a good table to refer back to on how to incorporate GLG products into your life.
