Going into the 8 week trial my skin and nails were very dry and I was using lotion everyday. As I’ve gotten older my recovery time from workouts has increased, my muscles get sore and old sports injuries continue to bother me. If I only see minimal results from ingesting collagen peptides, I’ll be happy!

So now for the journal:


The easiest way to add Sports Research Collagen Peptides into the diet is via your daily dose of coffee in the morning. Which if you are on a keto diet is probably what you are drinking anyway.  I do Keto part time so this was an easy addition for me.  This first week, I used a single scoop of Sports Research Collagen Peptides per day. That is, about 11 grams. 

I loved the fact that the Sports Research Collagen Peptides powder was completely flavorless and did not effect the flavor of my coffee. I had no problem digesting it and I found that it helped me to curb my snacking practice. I also noticed that even after strenuous workouts I seemed to recover faster. I also take Vintage Blast Burnfat to help with recovery. I took a Vitamin C supplement since I am avoiding juice and the sugar it has and because Vitamin C is good for your skin and helps collagen work in your body. 


I didn’t have much to add to the Week one list however I did notice my nails and skin began to look healthier.

I noticed that some habitual dry patches on my feet had gone away. I stayed true to a daily Vitamin C supplement with every serving of Sports Research collagen peptides. 


I received my second order of Sports Research Collagen Peptides this week even though I still had a few weeks supply left. I have begun noticing my hair feels less dry as well. 


Again, continued to see improvement in my hair and skin, My hair is feeling like it’s 10 years younger. 


At this point, I think the biggest changes are in my hair and skin now.  I am pretty happy with how healthy my nails look. They have this wonderful pink hue to them I haven’t seen in a long time.

Starting to nearing the end of the challenge I have already decided that I will continu using Sports Research Collagen Peptides even after the 8 week journal challenge is up. I have upcoming travel and I so I have bought some individual packages to take with me. 


The 8 week journal is complete. To summarize the last eight weeks, I would say pure Sports Research hydrolyzed collagen peptides have had a positive impact on my nails, hair, digestive system and muscle recovery. Some effects are more noticeable than others such as my skin and hair.
