A few months ago, I wrote a blog about Further Food’s Chocolate Collagen Peptides Protein Powder – my absolute favorite collagen powder. My one wish for the chocolate flavor powder was that it could be available in to-go packets so that I can access it throughout my busiest days away from home. And that wish just came true! The company just launched its cocoa-to-go Chocolate Collagen Stick Packs last week and I could not be happier about it.
The chocolate peptides powder is Further Food’s best-selling collagen – and my personal favorite flavor. It contains mood-boosting reishi mushroom and 8,000 mg of collagen peptides now available in 22 easy-to-use packets. I love it because it dissolves quickly without gelling, so I never notice a difference in texture when I add it to warm beverages or smoothies. A few more reasons why I am obsessed with this collagen powder include…
- Curbs cravings and keeps you feeling full
- Keto and Paleo compatible
- 100% real food ingredients – no artificial anything
- Helps reduce wrinkles
- Strengthens hair, nails, bones & joints
- Improves gut health
Our bodies slow collagen production as we age, which is a primary reason for things like wrinkles, joint pain, and sagging skin. Further Food’s collagen has made my skin, hair, and nails strong and radiant. Plus, there is a noticeable difference in my mood when I use the chocolate powder due to the included reishi mushroom.
Reishi mushroom is the oldest mushroom known to be used medicinally and I have been a huge fan of it for many years now. Referred to as “the mushroom of immortality,” reishi is thought to promote longevity, memory, intellectual capacity, and liver health as well as prevent heart disease and lower blood pressure. The powerful medicinal mushroom has also been known to reduce inflammation and chronic fatigue as well as tumor growth and cancer. Reishi has even proven to lessen anxiety and depression and improve sleep quality. It has been so refreshing using a product that I fully trust that enhances me both physically and mentally.
Further Food’s collagen blend is always made from grass-fed, pasture-raised collagen peptides and dark chocolate that helps to curb sugar cravings. Further Food’s collagen powder is the only chocolate protein powder that I have come across that does not contain any gums, flavorings, stevia, or unnecessary additives. It is completely clean and made entirely from whole food ingredients, which is almost impossible to come by in a protein powder. I have been mixing the collagen reishi powder into my morning coffee to keep me satiated without having a heavy breakfast, but you can also add it to smoothies, bake with it, or simply add it to hot water to make hot cocoa.
