Collagen fruit gummies recipe

These collagen fruit gummies are an easy-to-make, all natural snack with protein and vitamin C. They’re great for supporting healthy skin and joints. The gelatine in these gummies is a naturally rich source of collagen. For this recipe, we love to use the pure gelatine powder from Planet Paleo. It’s sourced from high-welfare, grass-fed cows so you can be sure you’re getting the best quality collagen for your gummies.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. It makes up most of our connective tissue including tendons, ligaments, skin and muscles. It also helps to give structure to our skin. Adding collagen to our diets means we can help strengthen our joints, which can prevent pain as well as guarding against osteoporosis. Collagen is also great for improving skin elasticity, keeping it hydrated and looking young.

Foods such as pork skin and bone broths can help to contribute collagen to our diets. These collagen fruit gummies, however, are a tasty and convenient way to top up on this supportive nutrient.

These collagen fruit gummies are packed with vitamins too. Raspberries are high in vitamin C, an antioxidant that fights free radical cell damage in the body. Turmeric is also a great inflammatory, meaning they’re great for digestion and heart health.
