Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine has partnered with Vital Proteins to bring collagen peptides to our patients. Collagen is a protein made up of different amino acids that helps to give structure to our hair, skin, nails, bones, ligaments, and tendons. As we age, and the more stress we put on our bodies, we begin to break down more collagen than we produce. This can lead to noticeable fragility in the areas mentioned above and increases the likelihood of further issues. Supplementing collagen in our diets can help support healthy joints, muscles, and ligaments, as well as reduce signs of aging skin.
Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides also include hyaluronic acid and vitamin C, for even more anti-aging and wellness benefits. Because of their wide-ranging potential for wellness improvement, most adults can benefit in one way or another from taking these peptides. The flavorless powder is soluble in both hot or cold liquids, perfect for adding to your morning coffee or breakfast smoothie.
The providers at Austin Preferred take a personalized, holistic approach to each unique patient’s treatment. We are proud to be able to offer a variety of professional-grade supplements in our office to aid in our patients’ wellness journeys. Alongside our renowned physical medicine treatment plans, functional medicine — including supplements — allows us to optimize outcomes and better sustain our patients’ results.
