*FIT Food® Lean Collagen features bovine collagen peptides complemented with beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB) and vitamin D3, making it an optimal choice for supporting collagen production, the integrity of connective tissues, and muscle health. A natural metabolite of leucine, HMB increases lean muscle mass through dual mechanisms: inhibiting protein degradation and promoting protein synthesis. This versatile formula rapidly disperses in water and is ideal for athletes or for individuals who need an easily digested protein source.
Add all the ingredients in the blender and blend on medium-high until desired consistency is achieved.
The recipe is easy to double if you are feeding more people.
Why is muscle health so important?
Responsible for all movement and support function
Muscles are our metabolic powerhouses – it’s how we dispose of glucose that we eat and how we metabolise most of the calories in our body.
By having good muscle health, our bodies are able to regulate our blood to healthy levels so that other organs are not under additional stress
Abundant evidence suggests that altered muscle metabolism plays a role in nearly all pathological conditions and chronic disease
The average person loses between 8-15% of muscle mass each decade with acceleration after age 40
A great smoothie to get you moving in your day / before a work-out. It is the perfect mixture of fat, fiber, greens, and protein to keep you satiated and satisfied for hours. Not to mention the number of superfoods and antioxidants in this smoothie may help to increase immunity.
No additional sweeteners are needed as the FIT Food® Lean Collagen comes in a tasty Mocha Latte flavor and is sweetened with monk fruit to keep it low glycemic. The spinach/microgreens are virtually unidentifiable in the smoothie, helping to increase your veggie intake for the day.
